What’s the best thing to do at home on a cold, foggy autumn day? Playing games, of course! That’s why this weekend’s app roundup focuses on games, but thought on other leisure activities as well, such as creating awesome GIFs and finding your soulmate based on horoscopes. So, without further ado, here is my recipe for this weekend:
You may have heard about the highly popular Candy Crush Saga. This game, however, makes the fun, casual game niche more educational and brain-intensive: instead of matching colors or shapes, you match multiples. If you are a puzzle or match-3 gamer, this game is definitely for you – try it out. Download Crystal Crush Saga for free from the App Store.
Meet Buster the Dog Adventurer, with whom you’ll experience challenging game play with constantly evolving difficulty packed into a 3D universe. The game aims to bring back the glory days of the arcade platformer genre by peppering it with fun storytelling. Download Buster and the Crystal Bones for $1.99 from the App Store.
Designed for both iPhone and iPad, Skylanders Superchargers lets you experience the ultimate adventure with two Digital Skylanders SuperChargers: Instant Spitfire and Instant Hot Streak. Although it’s a 1.09 GB download, it may well be worth your time, since the vehicle missions provide a lot of variety throughout the gameplay, with tense chase sequences, fights, and challenging fields. Note that while the game is available as a free download, it includes in-app purchases, which could cost as much as $13. Download Skylanders Superchargers from the App Store.
If you’ve had enough of games, you can focus your energy on creating awesome GIFs, and then applying filters and adding text to them. Create GIFs that will go viral on social media. For that, you can use Giffage, an app highlighted in the featured section by Apple. Download Giffage from the App Store for free.
Finding your “other half” can be a challenge, but you know there is an app for that. Actually, there are tons of apps, but this time I’ll highlight Align, an app designed to meet the needs of millennials. It’s a dating app built to determine the compatibility between users based on astrological signs. To use it, log in with your Facebook account, enter your birth date, and the app will provide you with a daily constellation of potential matches. Download Align for free from the App Store.
