It's not easy to find fair games. There's many programs out there that want to, well, take advantage of us. Or our money, to be more exact. Timers, paywalls and advertisements are ubiquitous. As are suggestions that if we're having a hard time, we can make it a lot easier if we only pay a few bucks. "A few bucks for what!? It's a stupid mobile game! I'm just playing it cause I've nothing better to do... and the hundreds I've spent in Hearthstone ...that's completely different! It's a collectible game."
Everyone probably played on a mobile phone at some point. These are great, brainless time-eaters, going way back to Snake on the Nokia 3310. And guess what? These games can be a lot of fun. For many, many hours. Today, we're looking at fair mobile games. You pay once, and you get a game – like on consoles. .

We start with a bittersweet accent. Easy, Wayward Souls is a great game. Unfortunately, it had been pirated so much that RocketCat Games decided they'll no longer support it. This also answers any doubts you might have had about why it used to be so hard to get a complete product for Android. The risk of the game not making profit despite being popular, used to be quite large.
And Wayward Souls? The game is a rogue-like – we traverse randomly-generated dungeons and count on our hero not dying too often. We advance to new levels, get better gear (not as loot, bur rather secret finds). There are several classes to choose from, each of which handles in a very different way. A warrior can take more damage, a sorceress has to keep her distance, but she can become more powerful in the long run.
What's more, there's also a simple, unassuming story to discover, which we learn by putting together pieces of information and scenes – a bit like in Dark Souls, series which Wayward Souls also harks back to with inventive and difficult boss fights. The entire game comes with nice, pixelart graphics with great animations emphasizing the intensity of combat.
Wayward Souls is a production ideal for Android and iOS smartphones. Easy to learn, hard to master, and very satisfying.
