Last week was a little quiet for App Store releases, but consider this a fine bounce-back, thanks to very alluring originals like Tengami, Oquonie, and Second Chance Heroes, along with the anticipated Bug Heroes 2. We’ve already got reviews of a couple of these titles up, but be sure to keep an eye out for more in the coming days, and then check back next Thursday for an all-new list of notable games to consider.
Abe Lincoln looks pretty mean with a chainsaw. He’s one of 12 historical figures called in via cloning to save the world (and an underground hobo kingdom) from hordes of monsters, zombies, evil dudes, and man-eating cheeseburgers in Rocket City Studios’ dual-stick hack-and-slash game, Second Chance Heroes. It’s just about as crazy as it sounds, and the wacky premise is backed by solid gameplay. Lincoln is joined by a who’s who lineup of historical clones, including Leonardo da Vinci, Napoleon Bonaparte, Joan of Arc, and Queen Elizabeth I (who carries a gatling gun).
