    Sonic runners revival! It’s the full original Sonic Runners game that was discontinued by SEGA, but dedicated fans have reviewed it via reverse engineering the backend server responses and patching the app to point to their servers to keep the app running.

    Even though it’s “just” a mobile game, it’s surprisingly high quality, has a full blown story mode and even the multiplayer features still work!

    These are the games I have installed

    Out of all of these if I weren’t always at home and had a controller with me it’s vampire survivor and dead cells. No controller, reigns.

      I did play Shattered pixel dungeon, then I tried the original pixel dungeon, and now, after finishing echo pixel dungeon, I’m going to try out remixed dungeon, summoning pixel dungeon, and serenity PD. IMO they’re all great, it’s just that pixel dungeon is the original and the rest are forks (better than knockoffs in the proprietary world)

    I saw Slay the Spire mentioned exactly once, so I’m going to put the highlight on my current favorite mobile game:

    Slay the Spire is a deck-builder roguelike that gives you a different experience every single game. It encourages broken mechanics and rewards inventiveness while having enough rng to feel like a fresh experience. It’s challenging enough to make winning feel like you earned it, but not so challenging that you can’t win if you really try.

    The android version is a pay-once full port of the pc version, achievements and all. The touch controls are very well done. I’ve been hooked since 2020 when I discovered the game on steam.

      It’s my favorite too! I never get bored because there’s always been strategies to explore. Also love that it’s offline so I can play anywhere, like a plane

    • Monument Valley 2 [paid] - amazing for relaxing
    • Standoff 2 - just a shooter game that doesn’t force all of the cases and levels and upgrading. It has those features, but I just open the game and start the match.
    • Falling Lightblocks - best Tetris clone.
    • Antimine - Minesweeper with ton of themes and settings. It’s FOSS but the Google Play version has ads, download from F-Droid.
    • Flowit (F-Droid ,GPlay) - simple FOSS game that melts my brain after first few levels.
    • Despotism 3k [paid] - great game. It’s pretty hard. Very funny too.
    • Mindustry (F-Droid, GPlay) - My brain is too small to understand this game. But it’s fun.

      Mindustry is a completely different (and much less frustrating) game on steam, for what it’s worth. Mostly due to the fact mouse+keyboard is MUCH more intuitive than touch controls. Also fun fact, as long as you’re running the same version, you can port your save game between your phone and your pc.

    Genshin Impact, Punishing: Gray Raven and Streets of Rage 4 (non-gacha)

    Thankfully that’s as far as I’ll go into gacha nation (until the release of Wuthering Waves, at least). I’m good at controlling my wallet and not thirsting over every character.

      Genshin Impact is slowly taking over my life. I’m still F2P but I’ve come close to pulling out my credit card.

        It’s good to take your time to evaluate the characters. I follow leaks and some content makers (mainly theory crafters) for this reason. Sometimes the character is super strong but plays like crap for your tastes, sometimes they seem fun but are garbage for harder content, so it’s good to have people give you some information that you can then evaluate.

        I was about to pull everything (and saved A LOT) for Dehya before I knew about her kit, for example. Thankfully I knew about it before wasting the chance of getting Hu Tao + Staff of Homa + Aqua Simulacra. Best decision ever for my account, as I like playing both Hu Tao and Yelan.

          Oh yea I’ve definitely been reading all the character guides before deciding. Typically I’ll get characters on their rerun so I can see which ones are recommended after people have had them for a while. I need to start pulling for the weapons now that I’ve got some well rounded teams.

    Egg, Inc. - simple game, feels like the olden days but it’s also entirely modernised. Just recieved a tonne of qol enhancements.

    If you are a regular player and got far enough to need a co-op, and play well. Hit me up!

    Papers, Please is a great port that works on my S22 just fine. I also enjoy Game Dev Tycoon (not Game Dev Story), Into the Breach (if you’re a Netflix customer it’s free), and Chess.com (if you’re into chess, just set it to a 24 hour game so you can play once a day)

    Super Auto Pets is really fun and laid back. Its very strategic and pretty mechanically deep, but you battle against teams that have been pre-recorded from other players, so you can close the game at any time and rejoin whenever you have downtime. Imo it’s the best parts of PVP and single player combined.

      I think half of my Lemmy posts are talking about SAP. It’s such a good autobattler. Just boiled the genre down to the key components

    My go-tos at the moment are:

    • Oldschool Runescape - wooooooooo
    • Danmaku Death - old, free, no in-app purchases or ads bullet hell game from 2014, but it’s delisted from the play store…

    Other games I’ve enjoyed

    • Super Auto Pets. Base game is free with no ads, but there are cosmetics and expansion packs.
    • Pixel Dungeon and its variants. Free roguelike with no ads and no in app purchases.
    • Magikarp Jump. Fun little incremental game where you make magikarp jump. Has in-app purchases.

      I remember the magic I experienced the first time I played RS back in 2007. The game was mind opening. Although I only had a free account, but nevertheless had a blast getting my first Adam and Rune full gear.

      How is OSRS for you now? What are you enjoying the most. I wonder if I will get the spark back if I try it or if I’ll be overwhelmed of the options of things to do

        It’s as good as it used to be. I’ve enjoyed doing quests and fighting bosses. Grinding is slow but tolerable if you have a video or podcast you wanted to watch or listen to. Coming back as an adult is a different experience. You’ll find yourself being a bit more directed in how you play and it’s easy to optimise the fun out of the game. It’s decent on mobile and I have heard of people fighting endgame bosses on their phones.

        It is easy to get overwhelmed on p2p. My advice is you set a goal and go for that, or you pick a thing you really want to do and just do that and let the game slowly open up from there.
