Crymson’s Top 10 Mobile Games

Sitting in your dentist’s office? Completely board during that important meeting? Want to avoid talking during family dinners? We have you covered! Here is the list of my top 10 mobile games. Now, these are obviously games that I have played; I can’t add on games I know nothing about. If there is a game you want me to try and review let me know!

10.Fallout Shelter

Fallout Shelter, for your daily dose of Fallout 4, when you can’t play or can’t afford it. This game is free, but after time will run out of things to entertain you despite Bethesda’s new content.

9. Ascension

Ascension is based off the board game Ascension. The game is free but there are add-ons that you can purchase, giving you access to the game’s expansions. If you love the board game, you will love the mobile app and vice versa. Make your friends download it and you can play with them, random strangers or the AI.

8. How To Train Your Dragon: Rise of Berk

Probably the cheesiest game on my list is HTTYD: Rise of Berk. I LOVE HTTYD. I started playing this on Facebook before downloading it to my phone. If you love Dragons or HTTYD, you will find this adorable.

Elder Sign: Omens

Elder Sign: Omens Review
Fantasy Flight Games
Mobile Game

I picked up this one because I own Elder Sign, the board game, and I love it. I dipped my toe in the gaming world of H. P. Lovecraft with Elder Sign and I ran off madly into the night with Cthulhu soon after.


Elder Sign: Omens plays almost just like the board game, which to me is a huge bonus. I walked into this with a general idea of what I am doing. It has a similar array of characters to choose from. I say similar because I do not own all of the expansions for the board game, but have purchased most of the expansions for the mobile game, which run about $2.99 each.


You choose your Elder One. Some are obviously much harder than others. I’ve beaten all of them except Cthulhu himself, the Elder One of the first expansion you can purchase. After you have made your selection (it does tell you how easy/hard each Elder One is), you select four members of your team. You get to go over each of their abilities and, after a lot of practice, I do have my ‘dream team’ out of the characters that are already unlocked. I do urge you to always take Kate Winthrop with you, since she is immune to terror effects and I find her instrumental in the game.


You go from room to room, defeating evil and gaining items. You gain spells (they hold dice rolls that you may need), common and rare weapons (additional red and/or yellow die to add to your pool), clues (the ability to reroll all remaining dice in your pool), and Elder Signs. You need to collect enough Elder Signs before the Elder One’s Doom Track fills up. Once it fills up, game over. However, if you get the Signs first, you win.


Simple, right?

It’s amazingly well done. It never plays the same twice, even if you pick the same Elder One and the same team. If you love H. P. Lovecraft, or Elder Sign, or board games, then you have to pick this game up. It’s available in your app store.
