So that’s our list. Did we miss any obvious entries? Comment below what you think we missed or your own personal top games of January 2014.
January was also a big month for Square Enix as they released their award winning game, Deus Ex: The Fall, for Android. If you don't know about Deus Ex: The Fall, it is basically a story driven shooter. You play as Ben Saxon who is out to discover the truth behind a conspiracy. I won't get to much into the story but know it is amazing. What also is amazing is the graphics which make every locale seem realistic as well as the great sound effects and music. Gameplay in Deus Ex: The Fall really put you in an immersible setting which is amazing.
Detective Grimoire sits atop the crime-solving genre with its voice acting and gameplay, in an environment full of charming characters. - Patrick Garde
Detective Grimoire is a game I've personally been waiting on for a long time ever since I backed it on Kickstarter and now it is here in January. At its core, Detective Grimoire is a point and click adventure mystery game. However, it also has great cartoony but awesome hand drawn graphics, a party of quirky characters which make for an extremely interesting storyline and a unique detective puzzling aspect. Basically Detective Grimoire takes a fun but rather typical genre idea and spices it up in every which way imaginable. Check this out for sure!
Rather than hugging the inside track or sticking to the outer lane, Table Top Racing just feels kind of middle-of-the-road. - David Oxford
Maybe racing is more your style. Well in January 2014, Table Top Racing came out and will satisfy any racing craving you have. As the name suggests, Table Top Racing is more on the laid back side and features tiny cars in miniature situations (on a table for example) but don't let that fool you. Levels are pretty varied and it is always interesting to see the landscapes (roomscapes?) that you will be racing in. There are also tons of racing options at your disposal such as championship mode and special modes. Table Top Racing is free and if you're into racing games might as well download this one!
Eternity Warriors 3 is the latest installation in the series featuring gorgeous graphics, tons of loot, and solid responsiveness. This is a must have for any Diablo fan. - Jason Stengren
Like the Diablo or Torchlight series but want something you can play on your mobile devices? Check out Eternity Warriors 3 then as it has some of the best loot based RPG action I've seen for mobile thus far. This is the third edition in the series and by now most of the kinks from the other two installments have been worked out. Graphics are amazing in Eternity Warriors 3 and gameplay keeps surprisingly stutter free and very smooth. In Eternity Warriors 3 you have tons of levels to complete and tons of loot to find. This leads to some extreme replayability if you so choose. Did I mention Eternity Warriors 3 is free? Yes, you can get all this awesomeness for free.
