What to play in January: the best mobile games of the month

New Minecraft, dark RPG and psychological puzzle will help you not go crazy during the holidays
Happy New Year! It is not known what it will be, but the beginning will definitely be glorious. This month, fans of mobile gaming will have the opportunity to enjoy high-quality, and most importantly — very different games. Here you will find a psychological puzzle about a hero locked in a clinic, as well as a dark RPG in the world of dark fantasy. There are options for fans of slightly more fun or simple games. In General, we meet the new game year well. We believe that we will hold it in the same way.

Minecraft Earth
Platforms: iOS and Android
Release: already available
Price: shareware
Since mid-December, the whole world (thank the cubic God, including Russia) can enjoy building in the AR-game for Minecraft. If you used to build steep skyscrapers and entire cities on the screen of your smartphone, monitor or TV, now you can put blocks right around you.

Minecraft Earth — full-fledged Minecraft, only in augmented reality. It has the same biomes as in the big game, and the same opportunities for building, exploring the world, etc. Players are waiting for several modes: you can create, survive, and even go on adventures on the streets of a real city. After all, there are various things lurking somewhere, which, if found, become available for use in the game.

Why should I take it?
Because sometimes you need to go outside not only for pokemon!

Swag and Sorcery
Platforms: iOS
Release: January 2
Price: 529 rubles.
A humorous role-playing game from the Russian Studio Lazy Bear Games, responsible for creating Punch Club and Graveyard Keeper. Players will have to build their own fantasy village that will raise defenders of the Fatherland. They can and should be equipped, trained, and sent on an adventure and battle with various monsters. And on the road, you can equip three teams at once, each of which will perform its own task.

Swag and Sorcery is a heartfelt and humorous game. What is one story, according to which the king had a real grief — his favorite suit was lost. This is what the characters will look for, that will grow and learn in the fantasy village under your sensitive guidance.

Why should I take it?
Simple gameplay and a fun storyline may well come together and give battle to your boredom.

Ragnarok Tactics
Platforms: iOS and Android
Release: January 2
Price: free
If you know what Prontera and poring are, and you still dream about priestki at night, then you, first of all, are still an oldfag, and secondly you should at least try Ragnarok Tactics. Its essence lies in the name — this is a tactical game in the Ragnarok universe, once a popular MMORPG.

The game takes you to the fantasy Kingdom of Midgard, where big-eyed cute little men fight with sometimes no less cute monsters. The developers are the creators of the same Ragnarok Online. The game will have about 60 monsters from the original MMO and an interesting tactical system with automatic raising of levels and battles in standby mode.

Why should I take it?
An interesting game that does not have to spend a lot of time.

The White Door
Platforms: iOS and Android
Release: January 9
Price: 299 rubles.
Unusual point’n’click adventure game from the famous indie Studio Rusty Lake. The plot is built around poor Robert hill, who was brought to the mental health clinic by a difficult woman. There, he goes through a tedious routine every day, sometimes trying to remember something about his past and see the bright colors in his life again. By solving puzzles and observing hill’s life, the player must figure out how to restore the man’s sanity.

A special feature of the game is an unusual split-screen feed: it shows not only the action itself, but also the environment. We see hill brushing his teeth, but at the same time we have the opportunity to observe the room in which he lives. This not only brings variety, but also helps to better understand the character.

Why should I take it?
Cheap and creative. The game has an unusual feed and interesting puzzles.

The Pascal”s Wager: Annunciation
Platforms: iOS
Release: January 16
Price: 529 rubles.
A dark role-playing action game set in the world of dark fantasy. Players must wander through a world shrouded in Darkness in search of a cure for a mystical disease. Various nasty creatures and bosses will interfere with the search, as well as NPCs with additional tasks.

The Pascal’s Wager is a high-budget project for mobile devices that features excellent graphics, sound, and, of course, gameplay. In total, four characters with different unique abilities will be available for the game. You will need to wander through a three-dimensional multi-level map, where dozens of opponents are waiting for the player. The story campaign takes place in 20 hours — a feature of not every RPG for PC and consoles.

Why should I take it?
Role-playing game that would not be lost among colleagues in the genre on other gaming platforms. A must-play for those who have an Apple Arcade subscription.
