Nexters’ blockbuster Hero Wars tops the charts

Limassol-based Nexters’ blockbuster Hero Wars’ mobile and browser games have been selected among the best of 2024.

More specifically, Hero Wars Alliance has been selected as one of the best mobile games of 2024 according to online gaming site Pocket Tactics, while Hero Wars Dominion Era has been named one of the best browser games of 2024 by PCGamesN.
According to PCGamesN, as long as you have access to a stable internet connection, there’s a massive library of free PC games that can be played from the comfort of one’s web browser. “Whether you’re looking for something to play for a few minutes before your lunch break ends, or you want a game to sink your teeth into after work, we’ve got you covered. Our list of the best browser games contains a mix of genres to ensure there’s something for everyone.”

Topping the list is Hero Wars, followed by: Game of Thrones: Winter is Coming, Forge of Empires, Pirates of the Caribbean: Tides of War, Pirates of the Caribbean: Tides of War, Elvenar, Anocris, Rail Nation, Eternal Fury: Resurrected, Friday Night Funkin', Survivor Legacy, Townscaper, Minecraft Classic, Catan Universe, Kingdom of Loathing,, Powder Game, Chrome Offline Dinosaur, OpenArena Live, Spelunky.


“Hero Wars is a simple clicker game that’ll be just what you’re after if you’re looking for a game that’s good at filling those brief windows of time,” PCGamesN said in its review. “It’s all about building up a team of heroes and then having them battle against a selection of monsters and other players.”

Pocket Tactics listed a full list of the best mobile games to play on an iOS or Android device, though it said writing a definitive list of the best mobile games is “a tricky – some would say foolhardy – task at the best of times”.

It said there are hundreds of thousands of games spread across iOS and Android, covering over a dozen years. So it decided to approach this from a simple if slightly out-there premise: “If an alien were to land tomorrow and ask for a crash course in gaming, which of the best mobile games would you encourage it to install on the best gaming phone first? With such an unusual filter applied, we’re not looking for obscure gems or even necessarily run-away hits here. We’re looking at those important, genre-defining games that represent something essential to the history of smartphone gaming—a veritable greatest-hits compilation of the App Store and Google Play.”

The best mobile games of 2024, according to Pocket Tactics, are: Monument Valley, Raid: Shadow Legends, World of Tanks Blitz, Age of Frostfall, Slay the Spire, Mech Arena, Forge of Empires, Rise of Cultures, Kingdom Rush, Jetpack Joyride, Reigns, Genshin Impact, Hero Wars, Honkai Star Rail, Pokémon GO, Idle Bank Tycoon, Alto's Odyssey, Call of Duty Mobile, League of Legends: Wild Rift, Grid Autosport, Wayward Souls, Among Us, Clash Royale.
