It’s-a me, Mario! The well-loved plumber in red and blue makes his world debut on mobile devices - in a splash of his classic palette of vivid colors and quirky characters - to test your tapping finesse as you work to save Princess Peach from the evil clutches of Bowser!

You are always running forward and jump over smaller obstacles and enemies automatically, so it is up to you to jump up to reach higher platforms and whack those question-marked boxes with well-timed taps.

The longer you hold the screen while jumping the higher you can reach, and you can also pull off a spin by double tapping. Aim to collect as many coins that are scattered across each stage and held by enemies as possible, and rush to reach that level-ending flagpole before the timer ticks to zero!

▲ Breaking open those yellow boxes can reward you with coins or power-ups that can help you speed through the stage quicker!

▲ Unlock ‘Coin Rush’ by filling up the gauge in ‘Rally’ mode to grab dozens of coins before it runs out for an extra boost.

▲ By unlocking items such as Luigi or Yoshi’s house in ‘Build’ mode, you can play as other characters from the franchise!

From the home screen, you can either tap the green ‘Tour’ mode to play level-by-level or the red ‘Rally’ mode to compete against AI and other players. In split-screen ‘Rally’ mode, your goal is to go up against the shadow of your opponent and gather as many coins as you can while impressing Toad spectators with fancy moves. If you win, the amount of Toads who cheered you on will move to your kingdom!

Unlock new buildings and decorations to adorn your kingdom with, from classic Mario-themed items to special mini-game houses, by winning over enough Toads to level up. Tap onto ‘Build’ at the bottom of the screen to buy new items at the shop or move currently placed buildings and ornaments, and build a unique kingdom that Princess Peach would be delighted by!

This allows for a fairer chance to complete your Quests, while netting gold after each victory to buy new cards!

Design unique card decks, decide how you want to play (heavy hitter, spell-slinger, or even zany cards only) and prove your might! The battlefield might be one of ale quaffing and crackling fires, but you will need lightening fast reflexes and a steady strategic mind to reign here!

Whereas most roguelike dungeon-crawlers have you play as adventurers, here is one that lets you play in a very different role - as a Yokai! After scanning for hidden spirits in your area, the game has draws in and traps them all in an endless dungeon. You are now the lucky owner of one of these spirits, and have the ability to command it as you explore with the mission of bringing others under your command.

There are two modes, one for challenging how far you can explore, and the other for finding scrolls to unlock more Yokai. There are more than a dozen that you can collect, from the mischievous Karakasa, to the powerful Kitsune. Each of these delightfully frightful spectres has abilities that you can use to help you survive the dungeon’s dangers. Delve deep and see if you have what it takes to command the full might of Japanese mythology’s most feared "ayakashi" (collective name for Yokai)!

▲ Explore a bottomless dungeon filled with supernatural Japanese creatures.

▲ Collect more than a dozen different types to serve as your minions.

▲ Use their signature abilities to survive the dungeon’s many perils.

Not only has Alice had to deal with the Mad Hatter, Cheshire Cat, and dastardly Queen of Hearts, now she has to deal with an incoming onslaught of fiendish monsters in order to make her escape from the Mirror World once and for all!

Start by leaping from the teacup with a well-timed tap, and control Alice’s movements by tilting your device left and right. When enemies appear tap on them to slice them in two using your trusty sword, but be wary of your health hearts shown at the top of the screen – once they are depleted, it is game over!

▲ The coins you have collected are shown at the top of the screen – defeat monsters to get more!

▲ Spend coins on upgrades for Alice, and get hints on how many mirrors to break through in order to unlock new forms.

▲ Unlock new familiar character styles as you play, and use coins to purchase and use them.

Each part of the level is divided into mirrors, which need to be broken through in order to continue. Every couple of mirrors smashed through can unlock a new form of Alice, as well as new power-ups such as the pocket watch that slows time and the “Drink Me” potion that shrinks her down.

New enemies emerge as you soar through the Mirror World, each with different abilities and attributes. Time carefully to smash through the floating ball while its spikes aren’t showing, avoid the shooting fireballs of the blue-winged demon, and more. Upgrade Alice’s health and strength from the game over screen to help you speed through each mirror with ease, and don’t be surprised if you start shouting “off with their heads” as you go!

This tapping evolution game pays tribute to the popular Japanese manga and anime featuring “Titans” — giant, uncanny humanoids who have a penchant for snacking on people. Why not add some variety to their diet with vegetables and minerals as well? Doing so will yield unique evolutions! Create your own combinations of cuisines and witness your hungry Titan change into bigger, stronger, and more disturbing beings!

Simply tap on a food item you want your Titan to eat: lettuce, gems, or of course its... um... preferred source of meat. Feed the shambling colossus enough, and it will evolve into a new form. What you feed it will determine its next mutation, which in turn opens up new branches and unknown possibilities in its evolution tree. If you want to try a new type of Titan, you can devolve it or restart by spending diamonds. What interesting abominations will you unleash on humanity?

▲ Tap the box containing the item you want your Titan to eat. The treasure box gifts you more food.<br>

▲ Try rock-paper-scissors to win food and see your Titan in action! More evolved Titans are stronger.

▲ Check the “Gallary” to see what evolutions you have discovered and what branch you are on.
