14 of the Best Hidden Gems Released in 2016

Even though we expanded our top games of the year list to a massive 100 entries, there still were quite a few games that easily could have made the list. It really was a stellar year of mobile games, but with so much quality stuff coming out amongst a sea of dreck it can be too easy for some of the better games to slip through the cracks. While there's a bunch of games I'd love to have on this list, I've kept it trimmed down to the ones that I felt were great and beloved by a small group of people but just didn't get all that much attention during the year. Hopefully this will bring a couple of under appreciated games to your attention, and I'll encourage anyone else who has some games they felt were in the same boat this year to list them in the comments section below. See you in 2017!

Tap Tap Fish - AbyssRium, Free - Idle gaming was definitely a big thing in 2016, and I appreciated games that went beyond simple clickers and offered up something unique to the genre. AbyssRium did that by offering a gorgeous 3D "virtual aquarium" as a means to tie together all the typical progression systems found in most idle games. While some of the higher level creatures are locked behind some extreme grinding or even hard paywalls, I still immensely enjoyed spending time in my virtual underwater world with AbyssRium.
Astro Attack, Free - Astro Attack is a game I didn't get around to trying until well after it was released, and immediately I regretted not checking it out sooner. It's an homage to Galaga and Space Invaders-style vertical shooters, but done with a really neat voxel style that allows for a really unique (for this genre) 2.5D perspective. The shooting mechanics and especially the how power-ups work make for solid gameplay, but what is really fun about Astro Attack is the multitude of unlockable themes that significantly change up the visuals. This includes an awesome homage to Doom and a rad hidden first-person view mode.

Conduct THIS!, Free - Conduct THIS! launched out of the typical release cycle that we're used to, and hence I don't think it got the recognition that it deserved. It takes a similar train management approach that the classic Train Conductor series made by having you manage a train on a line by preventing it from running into cross-traffic while you shuffle a load of passengers to their appropriate stations. If you enjoy frantic management games where you need to handle a multitude of tasks at once, make sure you look into Conduct THIS!
