9. Galak-Z: Variant Mobile
Price: Free from fave.co/2vuGUIW
Galak-Z: Variant Mobile hearkens back to the early era of giant robot anime series like Macross and Gundam, with visual and storytelling styles that strongly recall those early 1980s classics. In practice, Galak-Z is an exploration-driven space shooter, in which you guide your mech suit through the stars and into planetary caverns to blast threats, recover items, and more.
This Variant Mobile edition is a sequel to the earlier Galak-Z: The Dimensional game available on Mac, PC, and PlayStation 4, and it’s definitely streamlined – it doesn’t have the bite or complexity of the earlier game, which is probably better for compact devices and onthe-go play sessions anyway. But at least the strong sense of anime-inspired flair remains intact.
