Puzzle Quest HD is a simple match-three game that heaps on tons of gratuitous (and fun) RPG elements. You get a chance to add armor, learn spells, and customize your character. RPG puzzle games are nothing new, but we love them for their ridiculousness. I mean, what says “Cast Water Tsunami Spell” like connecting four blue pog-looking things?
Sure, we’ve sort of compared everything to Doodle Jump since it was released in 2009, but that’s because it’s so good everyone wants to be it. Now, Hedgehog Launch isn’t exactly what you might consider a Doodle Jump clone, but its similarities are undeniable. With Hedgehog Launch you shoot a cutesy little hedgehog into the sky, and bounce off of platforms to get higher and higher. Stop me if you’ve heard this one before.
Gun Bros is a non-stop 3D top-down dual-stick freemium shooter (say that ten times fast). You try to survive wave after wave of TOOL enemies until you die, earning Xplodium that can be refined into money. You then take that money and buy new weapons and armor that will make it easier to clear more waves (and earn more Xplodium – to buy more weapons and armor).
Age of Zombies is a loveably inappropriate top-down shooter (think Gun Bros but with sprites). Similar to Gun Bros, you gotta shoot wave after wave of bad guys. But in Age of Zombies, you must protect the universe from Zombies. The premise is awesome – the evil Dr. Brains has infected the entire world with Zombies by dropping them off in every time period, so it’s your job, as Barry Steakfries, to go to those time periods and save the world.
