If you search for endless runners on the App Store, you’ll find a slew of games in all sorts of settings, using a variety of people or animals as subjects. Buddy & Me is another one of those games, but rather than emphasize challenge and dynamic action, what sets it apart from the pack are its gorgeous art, less intense gameplay, and charming, light-hearted feel. You play as a boy who dreams about running through the forest with a large, flying dog-like creature helping him.
Each week, we highlight a selection of the most interesting, exciting, and unique new iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch titles released on the App Store. Compared to last week's new release barrage alongside iOS 7, this week will no doubt seem subdued, though EA's FIFA 14 soccer simulation is a major debut, and Pocket Trains will surely captivate those who loved Pocket Planes and Tiny Tower. Other standout titles this week include Shadowrun Returns, Buddy & Me, and Boson X.
