The Team's Picks

This month we've fallen for two great new games. Make room on your storage space because these mobile games are going to be hard to resist.

Wildfrost mobile ❄️

Wildfrost, an eternal winter, has ravaged everything except the town of Snowdell, which is home to the last survivors. This roguelite TCG is divided into runs that allow you to create a unique deck. You start by choosing a tribal leader with random stats and skills before setting out to conquer the wilderness.

Develop the power of your companions and discover the turn-based counter system, which makes for highly strategic confrontations. Turn-by-turn combat means there's a time lag between what you do and when you do it, so you can plan your moves well in advance. And if you're desperate to strike first, simply change your counter to shift everything!

Wildfrost promises endless replayability with superb graphics. And its expanses of snow are waiting to be explored on mobile for just £10.

Boxes: Lost Fragments 🗝️

As a master thief, there's no mechanism you can't use. In Boxes: Lost Fragments, you must prove your talent and enter a mansion to steal all its riches. Each level of this puzzle game is made up of interlocking mechanisms that will remind you of The House of Da Vinci if you know anything about that licence. Everything is on a miniature scale and can be folded and unfolded like a complex doll's house.

Doors meets origami for an effective cocktail that will force you to rack your brains over some original machines. Play the first 10 levels for free and unlock the rest of the game for €8 on Android and iOS.

Thank you for reading this far. I hope you enjoy your gaming sessions this month.

Yaya Yaya would never have spent a single cent on a mobile game. At least, that's what the legend says.
