Lara Croft GO
Square Enix Montreal has released the second game in their board-game-inspired GO series, and this time they’re featuring everybody’s favorite tomb raider. Puzzle your way through each level in only a set number of moves, exploring and avoiding dangers on the journey.
Explore a house, weave webs, and try to avoid the real-time weather in this spectacular sequel to 2009’s Spider: The Secret of Bryce Manor. (Don’t like spiders? There’s a trick to playing the game as something else!)
If you loved the barrels in Donkey Kong Country, Bullet Boy is a very easy recommendation to make this week. It’s a game built around that mechanic, and as you’ll see in our review, it’s absolutely fantastic.
A physics puzzle challenge that looks like the long lost child of the Angry Birds series, but with a few twists all its own. Use your cannon to do as much damage (and wipe out as many enemies) as you can with each shot.
Endless running meets endless competition thanks to the promise of daily leaderboards. If you’re the sort of gamer that’s always chasing after a high score, and you also happen to love the running genre, Speedy Ninja has you covered on both fronts.
