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.
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.
Fire Emblem Heroes

Nintendo’s third stab at mobile gaming could be its deepest yet, with Fire Emblem Heroes delivering an experience that pays homage to the beloved series while also carving its own identity. By combining familiar gameplay mechanics with dozens of iconic characters, Fire Emblem Heroes crafts a deceptively deep SRPG perfectly suited for mobile.
Intelligent Systems does an excellent job of translating the existing gameplay formula to iOS and Android. Admittedly, it lacks some of the depth of the 3DS entries, yet often feels just as challenging. Managing your capable squad of heroes still requires a keen sense of strategy, albeit on a smaller and somewhat simplified scale. Seasonal events also do plenty to keep things with fresh with all new characters and missions to play.
