While its been a thing of its own for some time now, the MOBA genre really got its start as the multiplayer component of an action RPG or MMORPG. Dungeon Hunter Champions [Free] just goes ahead and acknowledges that directly by setting up solo play in classic action RPG fashion but marrying it with a 5v5, full-on MOBA mode as its PvP component. Why choose between two genres of mobile game when you can enjoy them both in one title?..

Unless you went into a social media blackout to avoid spoilers and then forgot the date of the actual movie premiere, you know that Avengers: Infinity War is now playing in theaters everywhere. Having already seen it opening night because that's the only way to roll with movies like this, I can tell you that it's a spectacle unlike anything that Marvel has concocted to date...




There's definitely some magic in Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery [Free] , the eagerly anticipated RPG from Jam City and Portkey Games that allows you to do what every Harry Potter fan (yes, every one) has always wanted to do: Become a Hogwarts student themselves. Not a classmate of Harry, Hermione, Ron and the gang, mind you, because the game is set well before they came on the scene, but it's an experience that many people will still want to try out, since it plops you right into the School for Witchcraft and Wizardry and lets you develop your own friendships and rivalries while learning spells and interacting with some very familiar characters...

Imagine getting trapped inside a video game and the only way to get out is to beat it. Yeah, that would be pretty bad news considering all the stats that indicate people don't generally finish the games they buy. But that conceit made the Sword Art Online light novel and anime series awfully popular, and it's front and center in the latest mobile game based on that franchise, Sword Art Online: Integral Factor [Free]...

'Marvel Strike Force' Guide - How to Assemble a Great Team for Free

Marvel Strike Force [Free] is the kind of game that you would have assumed already existed. It's a turn-based strategy RPG that has you gather five Marvel superheroes, villains, or in some cases, a mixture of both, and pit them against the teams of other players (asynchronously, alas) or waves of AI opponents from the movies and comics. If comparisons are more your thing, it's a lot like Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes except with Marvel characters and by a different developer, FoxNext Games. Even if you've never played that game, chances are you've played something similar on mobile and Marvel Strike Force won't be extremely difficult for you to grasp...

Immortal Warriors [Free] is the latest RPG/city building hybrid keen to hold your attention through a never ending supply of quests and tasks. It might be keen for you to buy your way to victory, but there are plenty of ways to enjoy Immortal Warriors without the need for spending any dollars. We take a look at how to play the game most effectively...

In case you haven’t heard, Fortnite: Battle Royale [Free] has taken the iOS gaming community by storm even in its current invite-only method of playing the game. This really shouldn’t be a surprise either, considering how well the game runs on current iOS devices, as well as how popular it has become on other platforms. When you fire up the mobile version of this awesome game for the first time, you’ll discover a few differences that may significantly alter how you play the game. We’ve been putting in our time and have a few words of wisdom to impart to try and make the transition easier for the rest of you...

Considering how The Sims Mobile [Free] has made itself right at home on the free apps chart, it's quite possible you're one of the millions of mobile gamers who has already dipped your toes into Maxis and EA's latest take on simulated life. You've tested out a career, attended a party or two and gussied up your clothes and house, probably more than once. Yet you may not have been able to avoid a very simple question: Is there something more?..

As we've mentioned in our launch day review, EA and Maxis' The Sims Mobile [Free] is a much better iteration on the popular series's formula than its previous mobile outing. Still, like most other games similar in style and formula, there are quite a few freemium underpinnings to wade through. We've put in the time and effort to get through as much of the game as possible in order to provide some general tips and tricks as to how you can enjoy developing your Sims while spending as little money as possible...

The new mobile version of Tekken [Free] should come with a disclaimer: This is not a port. Indeed, it's something new even for one of the most revered fighting game franchises in video game history, an installment designed from the ground up specifically for mobile. As such, it's not sporting the kind of complexity that once befuddled young arcade-goers (this one, anyway) with a button for each specific limb. but it's not as dumbed down as you might think either. Also, like Kendrick Lamar might say if he was a bit geekier, it's got CCG inside its DNA. So while you could just wander free through Tekken and see what it throws at you, it's always nice to have a guide. Come with us and we'll explain some of the most important concepts, how you can earn premium currency and unlock more fighters and much more...

Asphalt 9: Legends Guide - How to Download the Soft Launch and Use VPN

Gameloft soft launched Asphalt 9: Legends in the Philippines, and if you want to play the game before it's out worldwide, this guide explains how to do that. You will need to register a Philippines iTunes account if you don't already have one, or switch the country on an existing account. Additionally, Gameloft is wise to the practice of users getting accounts outside of their region and downloading games. So, the company region-locks its titles. What you need to do is to use a VPN, which you can do for free...

What to Do in 'Dissidia Final Fantasy OO' After You've Beaten It

So you've made it all the way to the end of Dissidia Final Fantasy OO [Free]. First off, congratulations. That means you've watched a ton of cutscenes and battled your way through all five chapters of the story so far, undoubtedly tackling plenty of optional quests along the way. Nevertheless, there's probably some stirring in some corner of the gamer part of your soul, wondering if that's all there is (or maybe the regular part of your soul too, if you're the existential part). The answer is no, because not only is there assuredly more to come on the story front — and if you've beaten what the game has laid out to date, you know that there's nothing close to a resolution to its epic tale — there's plenty to do while you wait for the developers to add more to the main quest line. If you want to keep playing, here's what you should be doing every day to make sure your characters are as well-prepared as they can be for what eventually lies ahead...

Maintaining a steady position at number 1 in the racing charts, Mad Skills BMX 2 [Free] is frantic fun for those looking for a physics-based racing game. It's also the kind of thing that's going to make you sometimes want to throw your smartphone against a wall in frustration...

How to Download Mobile 'PUBG' for iPhone and Android

There are two official PLAYERUNKNOWN's Battlegrounds games out now in China, and if you're wondering how to download them, we have the guide on how to do it. The two titles roughly translate to PUBG: Exhilarating Battlefield (the game with the orange icon) and PUBG: Army Attack (with the blue icon). While Army Attack supposedly features battles in the air, water, and on land, it also features a base battle royale game that's basically just PUBG. This is even more confusing than when NetEase released a few different battle royale games at once, because at least they all had different brandings. This is basically two slightly different games under the same license. Regardless, you know you want to try them...

Super Bowl 52: How to Watch on iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV - Best Football Games to Play While Watching

Wondering how to watch the Super Bowl on your iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV? Thankfully, 2018 is the best year ever for watching the New England Patriots play the Philadelphia Eagles on a small screen. Multiple apps are streaming the game, and anyone with an iPhone in the US can watch the game for free. The game itself starts at 6:30 PM EST, but there will be plenty of pregame coverage as well...

Dissidia Final Fantasy OO [Free] is the kind of game you can easily be sucked into for hours at a time if you like what it's giving you. Though loosely connected to the similarly named console fighting game, OO is as classic a Final Fantasy experience as we've seen on mobile, albeit one that has the usual free-to-play trappings and a selection of characters that spans decades of titles...

NetEase doesn't just spend its time on Rules of Survival. It's also responsible for Onmyoji [Free] - one of the biggest games in Asia, and it's finally made its way to a global release. Set in a world where demons and humans coexist, a battle between good and evil is the core of this game. With turn based strategic combat, a surprisingly extensive story, and plenty of gacha style elements, there's a lot to sink your teeth into. That's not forgetting its freemium roots, meaning there's a fair share of pay-to-win moments. Things can get a little confusing with some hidden away menus and options too...

While it's a little annoying that North America is so far behind the curve on Arena of Valor [Free] compared to Europe and Asia, the up-side of this is they can have a super fast-paced release cycle of new content that is already available in other regions. We're seeing one new hero released every week, with this week's newest addition to Arena of Valor being Kriknak, an assassin beetle-looking hero that plays a lot like League of Legends' Kha'Zix. His abilities all are based on physical damage, but his core damage-dealing ability deals bonus percentage-based magic damage. If your opponents are stacking armor, the magic damage will rip them up, and vice versa...

Picking up from yesterday's Arena of Valor [Free] guide series, in this entry I'll be focusing on the Arcana system and how to spend your in-game gold. If you missed the previous guides the best place to start is at the beginning with the basics of MOBAs, but below I include the full table of contents of everything that has been written so far. If you're not sure what Arena of Valor even is, go read our review. The idea of doing these individual guides is never making any one guide too overwhelming, as MOBAs are a super difficult genre to master...

Continuing where we left off yesterday in our Arena of Valor [Free] guide series, today we are focusing on The Armory and how to win games through intelligent itemization. If you missed the previous guide on the basics of MOBAs, go check that out. Also, if you're totally new to what Arena of Valor even is, take a look at our review. In future guides we'll dig deeper into the individual roles and typical builds for them, but all of those things depend on an understanding of how these main systems work first...
