Simulations, shooters, and worms. SO MANY WORMS. This week’s new releases are all over the place (in the best way possible). If you’re hoping to play a little Pokemon, or maybe just pretend to be bread, you’ll be delighted to check out this week’s new iPhone and iPad games roundup.
If we missed anything great, be sure to tweet at us about it or leave a comment below.
The popular artillery series is back in its first main-series release created exclusively for mobile. New weapons, upgrades, a massive single player campaign and real-time multiplayer battles set the stage for the latest wormy war.
Let’s all pause for a moment in acknowledgement of one crazy truth: this is the week a Pokemon Nintendo 3DS game was ported to mobile devices. That would have been unheard of as early as… well, any time before right now. Sure it’s a mobile-style match-3 battle game, and it’s free-to-play on 3DS too, but that doesn’t really detract from the gravity of the situation.
If you were addicted to Dead Trigger 2 (and if you weren’t, it’s only because you didn’t play it), it’s time to check out the latest game from Madfinger. Again, you’ll be squaring off against hordes of the undead — but man oh man does this game look pretty.
Surviving a zombie apocalypse requires a strong leader. Hopefully that’s you. If so, and you’re ready to rebuild a city and coordinate your fellow humans, Rebuild 3 is a game that shouldn’t be missed (or so says our review).
If simulating bread isn’t your thing, how about simulating an MMO inside of a Goat Simulator? Complete quests, choose different classes, and level up in a game that’s not actually online with other players. MIND = BLOWN.
The ocean is dark and deep, but a few creatures have a trick to light up the underwater night: bioluminescence. Try to keep your light source alive for as long as you can while avoiding the deadlier creatures that inhabit the ocean floor.
The original Rock(s) Rider hit the App Store back in 2012, and a lot has changed in terms of technology since then. So the developers are giving it a fresh coat of paint. If you missed this Trials-inspired dirt bike game the first time around, there’s no better time to remedy the situation.
Is it a little late in the season to launch a baseball management game? Maybe! But if you’re the sort who doesn’t pay attention to the sport until the playoffs start, this might be the perfect time to dive into some fantasy sports fun.
A gamebook written by an indie Scottish comedian that (at least in North America) you’ve never heard of — Steven McDade. This is either going to be hilarious or a train wreck. Since it’s free, it won’t cost you a dime to find out either way!
The creators of the Overkill series have decided to try their hand at making a refreshing game of Snake. It’s probably a great palette cleanser after years of shooter-heavy development, and if you like colorful voxels and old school gameplay, you’ll be happy to jump into their latest.
