Golf Clash is surprisingly good fun for a mobile freebie.

As long as you don't play like a dick you don't have to spend real money or watch videos or anything.

PPSSPP is really really good on Android. It's a PSP emulator, and it runs really well and is very well put together. I'm playing Persona 3 on it. Touchscreen wouldn't be good enough for most games, but there's a lot of turn based RPGs for the system.

Is anyone playing AlphaBear? You should be playing Alphabear.

It's a tremendously charming word game from the people who made the excellent Triple Town.

You create words on a board to create bears. Bigger bears = bigger points. There are apparently 100+ bears to discover. My current favourite is Golf Bear.

There is a cooldown system on the number of goes you have in the form of honey. I managed to play for a week or so without this being a hindrance, then decided to pay to permanently remove that cooldown as I'm enjoying it and the developer deserves it.

There is still cooldown on bears, but really that's no different to playing a football game, with your players getting fatigued.

There are daily challenges and you can challenge friends.

12 bears out of ten.

Eternal, the best CCG around, plays wonderfully on Android, even on a 5'' screen. Nowadays the only other game i have on my phone besides that is Zaccaria Pinball, which just plays better than Pinball Arcade or Zen Pinball on the small screen.

Reigns: Her Majesty is a sequel or companion game to the original Reigns, which I have not played.

R:HM is, however, a fun little game that I have enjoyed playing in spare minutes here and there. It is a simple adventure of choices; you are the Queen and you are met by a person (in the form of a card and some text). You then either swipe left or right to make a decision based on what you have been told/asked.

So, it might be:

“Do you want to have an affair with the hot barbarian princess?” You can swipe left for no or right for yes.

“The king is wounded!” Swipe left to call for help, or right to let him die.

Each decision you make alters between one and four of your score meters. These are Church, Population, Army and Money. If any of these hit 0, you are killed via an interesting means. However, if any of them max out, you also die! So you need to find a balance. This can be tricky if a decision might alter all four, or you have two running low and need to make a call.

There are also special quests, such as ‘birth an heir’, ‘cause an eclipse’, ‘fix your clock’ and so on. And when you die (and you will die. A lot) the new queen comes in and the story continues. There’s some repetition after a while, but the persistence of the world makes it quite interesting, and you can go on different paths and stuff. If you get any achievement done then that Queen will get a title too, like ‘Desdemona The Pure’.

I think it cost 2 quid, and is kinda fun.

Nice! I had TIT in one of my games the other day and it steadfastly refused to use it one of the closing sentences, no matter how many times I refreshed.

Alphabear is indeed fun.

But limiting without paying though. But it’s fun enough I am considering it.

£1.29 on android and it is indeed fun.

I haven't regretted spending the money on Infinite Honey. I'm having lots of fun on it and the Daily Challenges fit in well with my needs.

However, I am a bit peeved at their coin system for unlocking the treasure challenges for Legendary Bears - there's no obvious way of earning coins other than waiting (or, of course, paying). That is a shit trick. That said, it hasn't particularly tarnished my enjoyment.

Mimi and I both paid when it was big on iOS, but haven't played it for a while now.

There's definitely £1.29 of fun in it though, you should pay.

Does it still not work offline? That was a major part of why I stopped playing it.

It has a separate offline mode that it dumps you into if you don't have a connection (in which you get to play but don't make progress in terms of bear collection). When you're connected again it offers to take you back into online mode.

If it is indeed £1.29 as Russ says then I'd offer this: just pay the goddmann money. Are we really still swithering over paying less than two quid for a game that's already proved itself to be fun? That's pretty depressing folks.

Unlimited Honey is £3-odd.

Think the £1.29 figure came from Reigns which was posted above.

That can get to fuck, then. I'm offline a lot (the Tube.)

Yeah, it’s a fiver on iOS, or was when I checked.

No brainer at £1.29, but at £4.99 it’s going to have to wait until I’m drunk.

Just checked and it was £3.88 for me on Android.

It's not for nothing, especially seeing as there's still a pay-to-play element in terms of waiting to earn coins.
