    ok is it just me or are ‘merge dragons’ dragons pathologically attracted to the lowest level harvestables? you can have an entire forest of life trees, but walk away from the app and when you come back your camp will be paved with little yellow hearts, because one of your fruit trees spit out a level 2 flower and they’ve been hitting it like it’s the only bong in berkely.

    every time i leave them to do their little thing, i come back to a map full of yellow hearts, green mushroom caps, single bricks, and grapes. i guess furious orbs are too heavy.

    Deresto What's your favorite Pokemon?

    Seconding 2048! It's really soothing to just slide shit around to make a cleared area of play, and then fill it up with more numbers

    Also, I really love Plague Inc! It's really fun to find different methods and pathways to fill the world with an apocalypse level disease

    Knittens introduces new colours and elements every so often to make things more complicated (things you can only get rid of by destroying the tiles next to them, things that take more than one go to disappear, etc)

    The latest is b i r b

    Notice both the Birb in the upper right, and the little birb face peeking out of the egg. I love them.........

    Not just you. Even if I've got a bunch of high-level harvestables, they'll home in on the lowest level stuff I have. (Slowly working my way up to the top-tier life orb harvestable, though.)

    Ticket to Ride, my favorite board game and also my favorite ipad game, is $2 on ios right now!! https://apps.apple.com/app/id432504470 i'm not sure how great it would be on phone unless you have a big phablet, but it works fantastically on tablets-- including a great pass & play mode! build railways, complete your routes, curse your friends when they take that Duluth to Toronto route you've been saving up for.

    it'd be less annoying if the low level stuff didn't keep randomly popping out of the high level stuff. :P

    i mean it's good for growing your forest, but it means you can't just get rid of the level 1 and 2 stuff and leave the tablet sitting out and expect to come back to a nice field of big blue orbs. because something's going to knock out a little pink flower and those are dragon crack.

    anyone play dragalia lost? It's a cute little gacha game with dragons and bunny people.
    I like the art style, it's very round.

    Cookie Run is one of the most satisfying longterm mobile games I've played.

    Events are constantly on, but you don't particularly suffer for not participating. The in-game currency which you can also purchase is largely very generous unlike most games where you will never get it unless you buy it.

    There's a lot of different characters, and a lot of well designed female ones. There's young cookies, old cookies, male and female cookies, ambiguously gendered cookies.

    I've experimented with a few mobile games, so I might post some others later. I just think Cookie Run hits a VERY good place of being very generous and replayable. The only gacha involving game where I can expect to naturally eventually get everything through gacha and without spending real world money. A game where I feel free to play players have as much of a chance to be at the top as pay to win players.

    okay so
    there is TECHNICALLY a plot about trying to retake your kingdom from your possessed sister
    but in practice
    the draw of the game is summoning adorable characters, playing the event raids, and reading the character stories, which range from decent to really enjoyable
    it's a very tappy style of game, but autobattle is available if you just wanna pole the Turn Into Dragon button and special attacks

    oh no that looks really fun, i don't need a new tappy game, whyyyyy

    that's a lie i always need new tappy games :P

    speaking of my fickle heart flitting from flower to flower, i just deleted 'klondike'. it's got nice art, i love blowing up glaciers, and i love that most of the characters are inuit. but other than that, it's basically 'township' except with a stamina bar. and you run out of stamina in 30 seconds. i very much resent being frustrated into spending money just so i can play enough of the game to feel like i played a game. so out it goes, onto the trash heap with the candy crush franchise.

    sigh. i'm going to miss the dancing parka child who tells you the ship's cargo hold is filled.

    I'm kind of dying because I'm leveling up way faster than I can use either of my energy bars and it Bugs Me to have it go to waste, so I've been desperately grinding the raid in co-op to make a dent in my getherwings so the overflow doesn't cap. So now my shadow team is like twice as strong as any of my others. Please, game, let me rest. :::PPP

    that is an Absolute Mood
    it'll slow down eventually but for now grinding the event is your best option cuz the rewards basically never end
    which five stars do you have? I think I remember getting a free five star ticket in the beginning
