Heroes Of Honor (iOS)

Developer: Nonstop Games

This game requires players to hire peasants to mine resources, then build barracks, archery ranges and other buildings, with the ultimate goal of developing a military force to take out enemies.

Where Heroes Of Honor stands out is its inspiration from classic PC game Heroes Of Might And Magic, where heroes are matched to different combat units for battle.

Brave Frontier (iOS and Android)

Developer: Gumi Asia

Imagine playing Final Fantasy 7 on your smartphone. Gumi comes close with Brave Frontier, a Japanese-style role-playing game. It has fewer buttons to press, but maintains depth in character development and customisation of your battle squad.

This beautiful manga-style game was tops in Apple's App Store in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, the Philippines and Vietnam.

Monster Blade (iOS and Android)

Developer: Nubee

Monster Blade turns monster slaughter into a fun game that is also deep and has amazing visual appeal.

Gamers use finger-swipe commands to execute attacks, dodges and blocks. They need a keen eye, fast fingers and good hand-eye coordination as they take on creatures such as a three-headed hydra and a fire-breathing dire wolf.

With more than 1.2 million downloads globally from more than 150 app stores, Puzzle Trooper is a hit. You form an attack by gathering balls of the same colours and command soldiers to defeat enemy soldiers. You have six seconds to move the ball as far as you want.

In the hands of an expert, linking crazy multiple combos is an awesome spectacle to behold.

Dusty Revenge (PC and Mac)
