In time for Turkey Day, Hardcore Droid brings to you the five top games for the week of November 24th, 2014!
The majority of the games this week are RPGs, but thankfully there is at least one strategy game to keep you on your toes!
5. Unicorn Training
Have you ever been halfway through your favorite role-playing game and thought: You know, I gor tired of playing as a nameless warrior, how cool would it be to play as a cute little Unicorn? Well, if you’re half as hardcore as we here at Hardcore Droid, the thought probably crosses your mind all the time. Unicorn Training is a role-playing game, where players traverse through dungeons, explore forests, and master spells. Though it can be a bit glitchy, the reviews have come in thus far suggests it has been overall good, so if you are unsure you want to commit to this game, check out the free demo first.
4. RPG Quest Minimæ
Rendered in classic 8-bit design, this RPG has a lot to offer. RPG Quest Minimæ sports a large open-world map, plenty of side quests and mini-games and also offers a bevy of activities post-game, including an ‘infinite’ dungeon. As true to the RPG name, there are also quite a few hidden secrets as well. You can hang tough for the Hardcore Droid review in the next week or so; however, if 8-bit floats your boat, most early reports suggest RPG Quest Minimæ is a solidly fun distraction.
3. The Shadow Sun
The Shadow Sun was created by a veteran group of developers some of whom, purportedly worked on such classes RPG franchises as Neverwinter Nights, Baldur’s Gate, and The Witcher. Our initial play-testing of the title suggests that it’s a Western action RPG that packs quite a punch. With real-time combat, complex NPCs, solid writing, and a large world to explore, The Shadow Sun seems like it’s a solid contender for a Most Hardcore Android RPG lists. It also includes plenty of customizations, NPC dialogues that enable new options as you continue to talk with them, and even a sidekick to run amok with you. Though The Shadow Sun hawks a few IAPS, they are one-shot affairds that are completely optional.
2. Kingdom Rush Origins
The latest iteration of one of Hardcore Droid’s highest rated strategy games, a tower defense game, Kingdom Rush Origins brings back more of the same fun. While there are a lot of old locations you can visit, there are a great deal of new items added, including new towers and troops, new tower upgrades, new enemy types and bosses, and new legendary heroes. With three game modes, this game can keep you happy for a long time.
1. The Banner Saga
The Banner Saga is a beautifully designed tactical strategy game. Set in a 2D fantasy realm with sumptuous hand-painted graphics, The Banner Saga’s story is a gripping yarn, was inspired by Norse mythology. Players will make many choices that will drive the narrative in different directions, depending on the decisions the player has made. With over 25 different playable characters and different choices with each one, this smart, pretty and engaging game can be played many times over.
