Need something new on your iPhone or iPad to pass the time this week? Good news: 2015 has no shortage of options for new games. Whether you’re looking for something with retro appeal, something with brain-tingling puzzles, or something wonderfully fresh and unique, the App Store’s got it this week.
Did we miss anything amazing? Be sure to let us know in the comments below.
A little bit Bubble Bobble, a little bit Snow Bros., Drop Wizard is a single screen platformer that’s missing a jump button. Don’t worry though – what your hero is missing in leg strength, they make up for in magic.
The name might make this one sound like an action-platformers dream, but Gunbrick is more of a puzzle platformer than anything else. With a gun on one side of your brick and a shield on the other, you’ll need to roll through each level wisely.
Plarium’s Stormfall is one of the biggest strategy games on Facebook — and now, with Rise of Balur, you can put the experience in your pocket. The Facebook version has a fairly devoted following, so it should be interesting to see if they embrace the mobile alternative with the same fervor.
Break out your iPad and get some friends together — it’s same device multiplayer craziness time! Multiple arenas with unique designs should give this one more strategy than you might expect from a one-button battler.
How precise are you? Could you, say, tap an expanding circle at just the moment at which it reaches its maximum circumference? If you answered yes, this game is ready to put your bold claims to the test.
Defend the Earth (from Las Vegas) using a healthy mix of stage magic, slot machines, and lane defense. If this sounds like the sort of crazy mix that could only come from Adult Swim Games, you’re not mistaken.
The team behind Reckless Racing are stepping out of their cars and into some cowboy boots. Space cowboy boots, that is. It’s a top-down shooter or a top-down stealth game. However you decide to approach it is up to you.
Mixing elements of combat, pet care, and zookeeping, Gameloft’s Dragon Mania Legends looks to touch on a number of different free-to-play staples at once. Can the mash-up work? Let’s find out together.
What kind of a week would it be on the App Store if we didn’t see the release of puzzle game with minimalist visuals? The latest comes with a big publisher attached: Bulkypix. That alone should be enough to pique your curiosity.
