The Bonfire: Forsaken Lands – MGH Rating – 9.0/10

The Bonfire: Forsaken Lands is an extremely intelligent game. We love a good strategy game here at MobileGameHunter and this was one of the highlights of 2018.

The game centers around the life of a seller who builds a community and then workes together to protect it.

Something that really works in this game is its story and the way it is told, and that helps it stand out in its genre.

This game may not be for everyone but it is certainly worth your time if you decide to give it a go.

Final Fantasy XV – MGH Rating – 9.5/10

Final Fantasy XV brings all the glory of the mega-successful console game to your mobile phone.

This achievement in itself is super impressive. The developers didn’t just transfer the whole game to the mobile platform, rather they made sure it was mobile friendly.

This worked out so well.

The storyline was cut shorts (for obvious reasons), but everything you loved about the original was still intact.

One of the most impressive titles of 2018, Final Fantasy XV managed to close the gap between mobile and console gaming.

That is why it is one of our highest rated games.

Florence – MGH Rating – 9.1/10

There are not enough games like Florence in the market. But maybe that’s why this game is so special.

It’s unlike anything we had played before, and it certainly is an experiment that worked out really well.

The game tells the story of Florence and we are invited to be apart of her beautiful love life. It truly is one unique experience.

If you are the type that likes to stray away from the norm, Florence is something you can’t miss.

We certainly loved it.

Cytus 2 – MGH Rating – 9.0/10

Cytus 2 is finger tapping madness at its absolute best.

This is a slightly different kind of rhythm-based game as it is based on a story. To be more specific, it is about solving the murder of a dead DJ.

The gameplay itself is fantastic; add a good story and great music to it, and you got yourself a pretty good game.

Cytus was well received by fans and critics alike, and there is no reason why you shouldn’t check this game out right now.

Playdead’s ‘Inside’ – MHG Rating – 9.2/10

One of the most memorable titles of 2018, Playdead’s Inside will take your breath away.

It is one of the most haunting games we have ever played. The story and the fear factor was created beautifully on the mobile screen. Inside is nothing short of a masterpiece.

From the fluid graphics to the mesmerizing soundtrack, Inside will transport you to another world.

This game is highly recommended.

Fez: Pocket Edition – MGH Rating – 9.5

Fez: Pocket Edition is the ultimate little “BIG” game. For those of you who don’t know, Fez is a console game released way back in 2012 on the Xbox which impressed literally everyone.

The game is a 2D platformer set in a rotatable 3D environment.

This magnificent game has so much to explore, and so many secrets to uncover, it really is something you need to experience for yourself.

We absolutely adore this game, and you should certainly check it out. Trust me, you are missing out if you don’t.

Animus: Stand Alone – MGH Rating – 9.0/10

Animus – Stand Alone, is obviously inspired by Dark Souls. However you will notice that the combat is faster, and given that this a mobile game, that was a brilliant decision to make.

Playing through the game, it felt like playing one of the early Dark Souls game, which is a very good compliment.

The one weakness may be the controls, again given it’s a mobile game, you cant expect too much.

We recommend that you use a controller if you have on as it really improves the experience.

In short, Animus – Stand Alone is one heck of a game!

Reigns: Her Majesty – MGH Rating – 9.5/10

Reigns: Her Majesty is a pretty neat evolution of the original Reigns.

This is a game where you continuously get questions for which you have two options.

The game portrays being a ruler as a tinder app, where you swipe right to do, swipe left to ‘not’ do.

Reigns: Her Majesty is not what it sounds like and is full of depth and continually go deeper and deeper where your choices have consequences much like in real life, and characters do different things based on the way you play the game.

This creates complex situations which make the game really interesting.

Bridge Constructor Portal – MGH Rating – 9/10

Bridge Constructor Portal The title simply tells you what the game is, it is a bridge constructor game with portal mechanics.

The premise of this game is to build bridges so that vehicles and get across it.

The idea of bridges and portals actually merge really well.
