Let's get on with it!
The Tale of Food
This unique gacha game lets players collect Food Souls from the summons pool to deploy in battle, but what makes the title stand out from the sea of character-collection RPGs is that the characters here are literally "food personified". Players will collect anime-style boys that have been patterned after real-life food from all over the world, each one with his own gorgeous character design to marvel at and backstory to discover.
The game also features a restaurant management mode as well as a home decorating feature to spice up the food-themed gacha game even more.
Paths: Beatrice's Adventure
This visual novel-style game places the responsibility of making Beatrice's choices for her in players' hands, as they pick the right responses to certain situations to influence how the narrative will unfold. The game features branching "paths" all presented in lovely hand-drawn visuals with a phone-chat-style of storytelling.
To monitor how Beatrice is doing so far, players can check her relationship status with the people in her life, as well as reminisce on previous moments from the lovely collection of hand-drawn images in the game's gallery.
Mighty Quest Rogue Palace
This Netflix exclusive is one of a series of games launched in collaboration with Ubisoft that lets players dive back into the world of The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot in an ad-free environment with no in-app purchases. Players can look forward to unlocking 20 playable heroes as well as collecting all the epic loot they can get their hands on in this roguelite action game.
The title also features thrilling hack-and-slash combat across 15 zones, as well as plenty of equipment they can deck their hero with to prep for every battle before each run.
Coming this week on the 22nd, this Augmented Reality (AR) game launches in time for Earth Day and gives players a unique experience of nurturing massive beasts that have "appeared" from the Overworld across the Earth's skyline.
Players can marvel at these Overbeasts using AR technology and take photos of these creatures, or they can gather resources and feed their local beast to help it grow. Then, they can prep them for battle against beasts from neighbouring regions in The Ultimate Overbeast League.
Laser Tanks lets players engage in - as the name suggests - laser tank battles across different terrain types presented in vivid pixel-art visuals. Players will collect a variety of weapons and explore dangerous dungeons to save the world. The game also features puzzle-solving elements such as deactivating CCTV cameras and unlocking pin codes, with more than 40 kinds of foes to defeat, each one boasting its own unique attack pattern.
The runtime for the game is approximately 2-3 hours, and will soon release on iOS devices as well.
