Crazy Fairies Beta (Free)

What’s it about? Turn-based strategy title Crazy Fairies has players flinging artillery at one another, and also playing as fairy tale characters for added weirdness.

What’s cool? Crazy Fairies is a multiplayer title, with the goal being to use various different weapons to take down your opponents in turn-based play. The whole game is set up on a side-scrolling plane, and players choose different fairy tale characters to control and take into battle. As you play, you’ll be able to upgrade your capabilities to make you more effective in combat, but the game is basically about moving around the map to avoid fire, while firing off your weapons to take down enemies before they can escape. Just keep in mind that this is a beta release, and therefore, bugs are still being worked out.

Who’s it for? Strategy and multiplayer fans, this one’s for you, especially since Crazy Fairies supports cross-platform play with iOS users and PC players.

What’s it like? The classic side-scrolling strategy game Worms is very similar to what Crazy Fairies offers, while Great Big War Game offers more top-down strategy action.
