We’re in medieval mood!
If Android was the Moon, there’s a dark side where most Android users never look at: paid games. Freemium and ad-supported games are the prevailing trend, while nearly all paid games have a demo or trial version to put our hands on first.
However, some developers strongly believe that their games are worth purchasing. It’s a risky move that, when borne out by experience, backed up by a great idea and endorsed by outstanding human and technical resources, can succeed. If we add some middle age aroma to the formula we may talk about a potion which makes invincible only who dares to drink it without blinking.
We’re proud to recommend these three great games below. They have in common three main things: they cost less than you think, they are medieval themed and they have been quite a surprise in the midst of rough seas of casual gaming. Treat yourself to a gift with these three wonderful games worth absolutely paying for:
Carcassone is one of those fun games that actually deserved to be converted from board to device. It has the essence of nearly every modern European board game: easy to learn, hard to master; lovely little wooden pieces and a non-military theme; and somewhat pedagogy everywhere.
It’s the perfect game to make more enjoyable long car, bus or train trips. Perhaps you can play Carcassonne on the go and save Catan by the time you get home.
It isn’t either chess or checkers but requires even more raw strategy than the aforementioned game. Castle Warriors is a quite innovative game in which it’d be better if you worry more about tactics instead of silly upgrades. It proves that everything isn’t invented yet and there’s still room for new and creative ways of spending our leisure time.
The mere mention of thist name has to be able to get you goosebumps. It probably was the best thing not only ever done, but ever conceived. It was the precursor of what we call “quick time events” nowadays. It was created by Don Bluth, the same who, among many other things, drew the Land before Time (aka “In pursuit of the Enchanted Valley”) and The Secret of Nimh.
In short, anyone who has ever wanted to revive that so 80′s feeling or would wanted to speculate how videogames could be if things had turned out somewhat different, here’s Dragon’s Lair.
You know we love those developers who know how rummage through our childhood in order to bring back its most precious jewels. Who would have thought that we would play Dragon’s Lair on a phone?
