Bad North is a "Minimalistic, Real-Time Tactics Roguelite". I love the cute hand-drawn art style and the sounds to match. It's definitely minimalist; you don't get that many tactical options. There are 3 different troop types with upgrades, and high ground. Your goal is to defend a tiny island from waves of invaders, across a randomly generated set of maps. When you die, it's game over and start again (without any currency or anything to carry over, you just start again). Fun for a little bit, but with so few options the replay-ability is limited. Probably would work ok on mobile. Played on Microsoft Game Pass.
