For years we have researched and written about the best smartphone apps. Every week. Now we’re going to try something a little different, so these will be our last apps of the week as you know them. But it will be reborn as something new and hopefully better.
That being said, here are our favorite apps from this week.
SEE AS WELL: Free apps for Android and iOS this week
9th dawn III
Price: $ 9.99
9th Dawn III is a new open world RPG. It’s a pretty big game with a bunch of content, including over 1,400 items to collect, 270 unique enemies, and a ton of locations to explore. For the most part, you explore dungeons, collect equipment, customize it and go on an adventure again. The game adds things like fishing, cooking, collecting gems, and playing Fyued (a card game) to complete the experience. The mechanics are fairly easy to understand for most people and the game has a lot more depth than it looks from its graphics. It’s a bit pricey at $ 9.99, but you’ll easily get your money’s worth if you finish it.
Project Cheat Codes
Price: Free / $ 1.99
Project Cheat Codes is something a little different for gamers. It aims to be a one stop shop for video game cheat codes. The developer has two main goals. The first is to keep the install size as small as possible and the app omits all flashy graphics specifically for this purpose. The other is to include as many cheat codes for as many games as possible. It’s obviously a daunting endeavor, but the app already has a decent and rapidly growing game collection. This one could be a great gaming tool if the developer continues. The premium version costs $ 1.99 and we think that’s fair.
Sword Master Story
Price: free to play
Sword Master Story went out of pre-registration this week and it already has a bunch of downloads. It’s a hack-and-slash action RPG with gacha mechanics. Players collect characters, level them up, and use them to fight bad guys. Basically, it’s not that different from most other gachas. There is a set number of characters and the leveling paths are quite similar to most others in the genre. However, some people seem to like its mechanics and history even though the translations are a bit rough. The game has a few bugs here and there, but it shows promise if the developers follow through.
InstaMocks is an interesting little app for screen capture enthusiasts. It allows you to take screenshots and then simulate them inside a device. People can use it to dress up their screenshots a bit. The app is mainly aimed at developers, programmers, bloggers and the like to make beautiful screenshots to display on social media or play store. Still, anyone can use the tool. It includes over 40 devices, a built-in text editor, and you can work with up to 10 screenshots at a time. It is also a free tool.
Masketeers: Idle Has Fallen
Price: free to play
Masketeers: Idle Has Fallen is the last idle game in a genre crowded with 2020 releases. This one looks to be pretty good. Players collect masks to empower them and defeat the bad guys. As you level up, your team can kill baddies faster and gain more stuff at a faster rate. The combat part is pretty neat even though it is surrounded by familiar idle game ideas. Still, it feels a bit better and deeper than your standard inactivity experience. It’s another one that has a lot of potential as long as the developers follow it.
