1. Alien: Blackout
Set four years after the critically acclaimed (and deeply creepy) Alien: Isolation, this handheld chiller once again puts you in the shoes of Amanda Ripley.
Gameplay involves facing up against unpredictable Xenomorphs that have been let loose on a damaged space station.
With terrifying aliens and regular blackouts, this game calls for steady hands and steely nerves. Danger lurks around every corner, so stealthy gameplay and keen eyes are key.
If you loved the Alien: Isolation console game, or just like a good scare, then you’re guaranteed to get a kick out of this long-awaited stealth-horror sequel.
- Available on iOS and Android. Paid.
2. Pokémon Quest
A mashup of Pokémon Go! and Minecraft, Pokémon Quest whisks you away to the land of Tumblecube Island. Here, Pokémon are square and blocky, but still just as eager to do battle.
The focus is on completing tasks and collecting power-ups that make your Pokémon better battlers.
If games like Minecraft and Fortnite float your boat, then Pokémon Quest is the mobile game for you. It takes the fort building elements from these popular titles and mixes them up with the familiar fun of the Pokémon franchise.
- Available on iOS and Android. Free.
