Best mobile games of 2017
Created by a team of former Secret of Mana developers, Egglia is as strange, and as lovely, as you might expect. It’s an RPG, drawing heavily from folk lore, in which you have to rebuild a broken fairyland by exploring areas, collecting materials, defeating foes in turn-based battles, and finding eggs, which crack open to reveal the next section of the realm. It’s a little different from the standard RPG fare, though, also integrating crafting and timers (sans, thankfully, microtransactions) for a much more interestingly varied experience.
