The games included in this round-up are selected only by their quality and with no regards to genre: you will find casual games, puzzlers, racing games, strategy and everything in-between. The paramount criterion is quality and an engaging gameplay.
Yo-Kai Watch Wibble Wobble
A port of the popular Nintendo 3DS game, Yo-Kai Watch Wibble Wobble is not only localized, but well fitted for mobile. A game dedicated to traditional Japanese 'Yo-Kai', a type of spirit that is somewhat different from ghosts, it is about these little mischievous gremlin-like creatures. It's a puzzler game in essence, where you collect 'heads' and pop them to deal maximum damage to opponents.
Tormentum - Dark Sorrow
If Tormentum reminds of a heavy metal band's album art, you're not alone: built and drawn in the best traditions of nightmare works of painters like HR Giger and universes such as Demon's Souls, it is an immersive experience. Tormentum is an adventure game that tells the story of a nameless hero, who finds himself in a place between fantasy and nightmare. He doesn't remember his name nor where he comes from. Wandering through strange lands, he struggles to discover the truth about the world around him, as well as about himself.

The developer also promises that the game will work at an impressive 60fps even on older devices.
