Best Free Android Games 2017

Looking for the best free mobile games? Our round-up includes a wide range of titles for you to try without having to pay a penny. And what's more, we add a new free game each and every week, so bookmark this page to keep up to date with all the latest and greatest mobile titles on offer.

We’re a sucker for cute little mobile titles here at Trusted Reviews. We also love collecting random goodies and completing quests, both of which Post Knight deals out in plentiful spades. You play as an adorable little warrior given the job of what can only be described as a medieval mailman. The townspeople need stuff, and you’re the sole person capable of delivering it without being devoured by wolves.

THE GOOD

Post Knight kicks off with our hero obtaining his very first postal license. With this he can deliver parcels across the land with the use of his sword, shield and potions. By taking quests from a nearby postbox you earn experience and materials used for upgrading your tattered equipment. Soon you’ll be sporting an arsenal worthy of pushing through the hardest of stages.

That is, if you manage to make it that far. Despite its simple mechanics, which involve the application of upgrades and abilities, Post Knight has a surprisingly steep difficulty curve. This sense of challenge mainly surfaces in the main quest, which is your primary goal between completing the occasional errand and obtaining new equipment. The latter is absolutely essential, otherwise you’ll be stuck in an endless loop of trial and error.

Its mechanical simplicity means that much of the charm lies within Post Knight’s presentation. Luckily, it’s an absolute stunner. Hugely reminiscent of Scribblenauts, its characters emit playful gestures as I conversed with them, offering me new quests and items with cutesy splendour. On the flipside, the user interface is brilliantly laid out with a series of polished menus that are a breeze to navigate.

THE BAD

Every time you fail a stage in Post Knight you are forced to wait an arbitrary amount of time for your health to recover. There is no way to use field items to replenish your stats beyond what is locked behind optional microtransactions. This completely disrupts the flow of the game, especially when played on-the-go like it is presumably designed for. This issue is infrequent, but frustrates whenever it surfaces.

The linearity of Post Knight’s questing and upgrade system could have also used some more creativity. The 2D nature of each stage makes it impossible to alternate your strategy beyond using the right abilities at the right time. It would have been great to see more variety, or a way of changing which path you take on a certain quest.

VERDICT

Post Knight is a cute, playful adventure with enough depth to keep you entertained for several hours.

Score: 7/10 Microtransactions: YES

It's ironic that this was your game of the week. I just watched a video review from a huge fan of Rick and Morty that hated this game.

That's a shame. Still I'll give it a go, the ending of season 2....no spoilers, just to say it's well worth the wait for season 3.

Ironically, it's probably harder for superfans of the show to enjoy this more than anyone else. I've only seen a few episodes, but was drawn in by the humour and characters enough to enjoy it
