Kahuna is a tactical, one-on-one board game about controlling island territories. The physical boxed set, originally published in 1998 and still available today, doesn’t look like much – a modest deck of cards, a few plastic pieces, and a minimalistic game board. But what initially appears to be a simple game of token placement quickly reveals itself as a meditative test of strategy. USM’s universal iOS version of Kahuna not only capitalizes on this clever design, but also adds a distinctive thematic flavor to the experience.
Number-merging original puzzler Threes! is today’s standout debut, though it’s not alone — Final Fantasy VI, Eliss Infinity, and Broken Sword 5: The Serpent’s Curse are other notable releases, though we’ve got 10 in total to shine a light on this week. Be sure to keep an eye out for full reviews of some of these titles in the coming days, and then check back next Thursday for an all-new list of notable games to consider.
