If you’re in an area currently blitzed by heavy snowfall, you’ll likely appreciate the distraction offered up by the frantically challenging Dawn of the Plow. Taking the wheel of a pixelated plow in a lo-fi world of cars, snow, and asphalt, you’ll battle to keep the roads clear for the never-ending influx of traffic. It’s at once silly, hectic fun and frustrating brutality, punctuated by chirpy chiptune music.
You’ll find a promising-looking slate of new releases on the App Store this week, including John Woo’s ultra-violent Bloodstroke, the comic-based Marvel Run Jump Smash!, winter-themed retro arcade entry Dawn of the Plow, and EA’s free-to-play reboot of Dungeon Keeper. And The Room Two — previously only playable on iPad — also expands to iPhone and iPod touch this week.
