Does anyone play any chinese cartoon mobile games? I know I do!

This thread is dedicated to the discussion, thoughts, and opinions of certain mobile games you've played. I'll personally post my own opinions on games I've played, along with a source link and download if it catches your attention.

Fantasica - A tower-defense card-collecting RPG with a plethora of different event types every 2-3 days. Probably one of the definite free-to-play, pay to win games out there. Beautiful and usually lewd art, but by god, you will definitely have to spend to get somewhere in this game. I played for two years, got around $500 worth of items in-game, and sold it back a few weeks ago, quitting for good. People will spend $300-$500 per event just to get 8*s and above - they recently released 9* rarity cards and I can only imagine they'll keep increasing the rarity. I don't really recommend it (really, I don't), but a worthwhile mention because I somehow played it for years.

Age of Ishtaria - An action-battle card-collecting RPG by the same people who created Fantasica; as such, you'll get a multitude of different events, not limited to a single gameplay. Personally, I'm playing this now and it's not as grindy/spendy as Fantasica, but if you didn't get a head start from the beginning, it'll be a while before you catch up to everyone. Features art by a few people who did Fantasica, meaning it's pretty, cute, and lewd on occasion. If you're not the spender/grinder/time-waster type, this probably isn't the game for you.

Soccer Spirits - A psuedo-sports action RPG that has literally nothing to do with soccer except with the field and the artwork. Don't let that fool you though - this is one of the most generous type of game I've played so far. Just playing through the game itself gives you crystals needed for Gachapon pulls to build your team. The gameplay itself is pretty addictive and fun, and requires strategy and skill during soccer "games". If you're more of the mindless type, there's also an "auto" button for battles. Oh, and the artwork is nice, too.Recommended for people trying out mobile games for the first time.

Puzzle and Dragons - A puzzle RPG that defined what many mobile RPG puzzle types are. If you've browsed the app store, you've probably seen one of the many countless mirrors/spin-offs of this game, for good reason - it's one of the most popularly played mobile games in Japan. The game is simple, move blocks around, match 3 or more, and inflict damage on the monsters - but mid and end game requires some much needed skill and concentration for the veteran player. Easy to learn, but extremely difficult to master. In addition, the game is famous for doing crossovers with other popular franchises, including Batman and Robin, Superman, Monster Hunter, Dragonball Z, Saint Seiya, Ragnarok, Hello Kitty, Evangelion, Hunter x Hunter, Angry Birds, Space Invaders, Dragon's Dogma, Dragon Quest IX, God Eater, New Super Mario Bros., Hatsune Miku, Final Fantasy, and more (yes, and more.) Recommended for puzzle lovers.

Those two are great, but I really don't think you'll like Fantasica, in all honesty. If you do manage to get into Ishtaria, you're more than welcome to join my Union in-game.

Well, I guess I'll put something in here.

Til Morning's Light - Till Morning's Light is a puzzle adventure game developed by WayForward and published by Amazon Game Studios. The plot revolves around a teenage girl, who is tricked by two of her vicious bullies into venturing to an empty mansion in the middle of the night before they locked her in with only her book and a flashlight. Now it is up to her to find a way out of the mansion, which ended up being haunted, before morning or else she will also haunt the mansion for eternity.

I started playing recently, but I forgot about it for a while due to exams, but I should have enough to make a pretty decent review. Don't expect much from a mobile game in terms of graphics, but it's not half bad. The puzzles are simple enough, given that you have the clues and know where to go, you should breeze through them until the later parts of the game, and then they all start piling on top of another for you to solve, so it gets more challenging as you go on. You do get hints (that you can buy with the moola if you want) that can assist you, but you probably won't need them, future member. because you're a smart and a cute.

The monster fights are relatively simple. The website refers to it as "rhythm based combat" with some slightly unique twists. It's pretty much like osu! (^: After a while though, they can get repetitive, not to mention annoying, since there are times when you hit it and it still registers as a miss.

The soundtrack is probably okay. It's the one thing that I don't really remember much of. The dialogue is fully voiced, unfortunately, because the protagonist's monologue can get pretty fucking annoying when she's complaining and droning on about everything.

So yeah, I'd recommend this, on a scale of 1 - 10, a yeah sure okay.

Phantom of the Kill is coming to NA soon, which means an English translation. It's like a mobile version of Fire Emblem, with more waifus. Article here.



A bit more information about it from Steparu. It's not actually released yet nor is there a release date, but it's still a nice game to look out for.

There are a few ports of popular games out like Chrono Trigger and CoD: Nazi Zombies, but for the most part, mobage tends to rely on puzzles and card-collecting as the main genres due to mobile gaming in Japan being much more prevalent than other types, since many rely on public transport, keep to themselves, etc; they look for games like these to pass the time. Also a reason why handheld gaming is pretty popular there, too.

Try Soccer Spirits then, that's one of the few mobage games I recommend to people starting out.

You can also try Fate/Grand Order, if you can get past the moonrunes.

I had some fun with School Idol Festival but I hate only being able to play a few songs if I can't level up for some reason. I also don't particularly enjoy playing rhythm games on my phone.
