Back in the video-game heyday of the ‘90s, it wasn’t uncommon to see high-profile titles get releases on portable systems as well as home consoles. The former ports were invariably watered down — handhelds could at best make a valiant attempt at capturing the spirit of whatever the game was, but the chunky hardware just couldn’t quite get there. Surprisingly, the iOS conversion of well-regarded shoot-'em-up Sine Mora feels like a throwback to those days.
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. A couple of slick action affairs headline the week's offering – tactical shooter Breach & Clear, and aerial dogfighting sequel Sky Gamblers: Cold War – though other intriguing options like same-screen iPad multiplayer curio Gentlemen! and "bullet hell" shooter Sine Mora are available, alongside new Pac-Man, Bloons, and Archie games.
