Star Stable Online is a free to play MMORPG that's all about horses and female heroines.
Players create their characters and horses, and are taken to Jorvic, a fantasy island in which you'll quest, raise and train horses, and grow your heroine and stable while making new online friends.

The game has been around since 2011 and contains thousands of quests, but quantity doesn't mean quality as most of the questing mechanics are old-school in nature and mundane.

Gameplay mechanics are rather clunky when it comes to horse control, but key systems like racing are fun to participate in.

The game while free does have a limited trial up until level 5, when a payment becomes necessary to continue playing.

Overall, it's a unique MMORPG for younger audiences and horse lovers alike.

➔ Main points:

  • A truly unique "freemium" MMORPG experience built around horses
  • Only female protagonists
  • Thousands of quests on the isle of Jorvik
  • Mobile version available
  • Limited free to play trial

War Robots is a free-to-play, cross-platform online multiplayer shooter that offers an engaging, fast-paced 6v6 PvP action.
The game's huge selection of customizable mech robots, map variety and game modes will offer hours of fun without burdening your wallets.

The gameplay starts on the slower side, but at higher-level matches, mechs will dictate the pace - upgrades to speed, flight and more can turn the tide of the battlefield.

Graphics are on the lower end but that's to be expected for a game that's on both PC and mobiles.
The cash store is unfortunately very influential, and mech robots that cost real money will grant players a huge leg up in battles.
Overall, War Robots is a good time if one is looking for some quick PvP shooter action in a world full of mechs.

➔ Main points:

  • Engaging combat and gameplay
  • Cross-platform matchmaking means quicker queues
  • Tons of customization options to mix weapons and robots
  • Free to play with optional cash shop
