Ever since Puzzles & Dragons was launched, strangely mixing match-three gameplay with RPG elements, a ton of similar games have been launched, but none was as good as Saber’s Edge. Following similar principles, this free to play game brings in a ton of other elements and something that gamers love: unlockables and upgrades in terms of heroes and weapons/items. It also looks beautiful so you should really give it a try. Since it’s free to play, you have nothing to lose. But be warned: it’s addictive and you won’t be able to put it down!

A truly unique experience that you simply can’t ignore. With very simple gameplay mechanic – you swipe left or right to make decisions, as if you were browsing on Tinder – the game turns you into the new monarch of a kingdom in the medieval ages who has to make sure that he or she remains on the throne for as long as possible. Survive the seemingly never-ending gauntlet of requests from your advisors, peasants, allies, and enemies while maintaining balance between the influential factions of your kingdom. But beware; each decision you make might have implications and unfortunate consequences down the road that could put your reign and familys dynasty at risk! It’s basically Dictator set in a different age and with different mechanics and more depth.
I am sure you will love it, so click here to give it a try on the App Store.

Eventually, with your ever-growing animal population and special buildings, you’ll compete against your neighbors to see who has the best farm! And it sure is a lot more fun than it sounds!
