60. Overdox

Genre: Battle Royal
Price: Free (with in-app purchases)

Focusing on only melee, close up battles, Overdox is a new battle royal meets MOBA that keeps the action close to your character. After selecting your character, some gear to buff them up, and the melee weapon of your choice, you get thrown into the arena with 11 other gladiators, hoping to be the one that outlives all the others. Monsters are also present within the battlefield, adding an additional challenge, but as the arena gets smaller and pushes you towards other players, you will need to keep on your toes to survive. Rounds are a quick 5 minutes, on average, allowing you to play a few rounds quickly - if you like battle royal games and close up combat, you’ll probably enjoy Overdox.

59. Crazy Platez

Genre: Driving game
Price: $0.99 / £0.99

A game themed to a town in upstate NY, Crazy Platez takes inspiration from GTA and Crazy Taxi to create a pretty wild and fun delivery game. The food that you’re delivering is a local delicacy called a garbage plate - which adds to the humor in this game. The town you move around within is inspired by Rochester, with a layout similar to the physical town as well. With a limited tank of gas, you need to quickly pick up plates from random buildings with it, then deliver them to whoever ordered it. You’ll gain more gas which then lets you survive longer. The only issue is the grid-like town forces you into buildings from time to time - and you do have quite the rebound off of them, making it challenging to turn around.

57. Severed

Genre: RPG adventure
Price: £6.99 / $6.99

Severed is weird game to explain, but one that makes perfect sense when it clicks. You explore a strangely fantastical world in first person, battling monsters as you go. Combat works by slashing and slicing at the screen to damage monsters, or block their attacks, and, eventually, you can slice of parts off to upgrade your abilities (hence the name!). There’s a Mertroidvania feel to progression: you explore and backtrack, building up the abilities you need to reach different areas which combines with puzzles, the fighting, and an unusual art style to make a very different and enjoyable experience.
