It can be tough to pick out the best new releases amidst the barrage of iPhone and iPad games, but don't worry: we’ve got you covered with our look at the week's most interesting titles. New Star Wars, Assassin’s Creed, and Pac-Man games are heavy-hitters, but don’t overlook indie fare like Deep Under the Sky and Max Gentlemen. Check 'em out and be sure to come back next week for more.
Let's kick off this Memorial Day weekend right with some serious price cuts to some serious games. There's a ton out there and there's going to be more, we can feel it. Almost like a disturbance in the Force…
Looks like we've got a good handful of iPhone 6 and iOS 8 rumors cooking out there these days. No surprises to us. 'tis the season after all. As we move closer to WWDC, as we move closer to that traditional fall drop date, things start to percolate out there in the rumor mill world. So let's have a look at those and a few other tasty treats in this week's news roundup.
May the Fourth has already come and gone, but if you're a fellow Star Wars fan, is there ever really a bad time to indulge in games paying homage to that galaxy far, far away? That's right: the correct answer is no! The good news is there are offerings aplenty to satiate your Star Wars game cravings right at your fingertips. Whether you're into pinball and pew-pew or epic quests and resource management, we promise you'll find something to suit your needs in this rundown of the best Star Wars games the App Store has to offer.
May the Fourth be with you! That's what you'll be saying in two days, so we've got a heaping helping of Star Wars apps to slake your thirst to revisit George Lucas' realms. And if you don't care for a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away gaming, then we've got quite a few other options for you. So let's dive in.
An interactive take on Star Wars, dubstep-drenched shooter Intake, quirky adventure Botanicula, and classic board game port Talisman are the heavier hitters in a busy week for new iOS game debuts — and if you’ve been waiting for the second episode of Republique, it’s available for sale now within the app. Give these new releases a good look and then check back next Thursday for an all-new list of notable games to consider.
Like the complicated father-son relationship between Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader, the marriage between the Star Wars franchise and card battling games has been a tumultuous one at best. Last year's Star Wars Force Collection was a hands-off snooze affair bogged down by heavy micromanagement. The latest attempt at shoehorning a galaxy far, far away into a collectible card game format, however, is a vast improvement over what we’ve seen before. Star Wars: Assault Team packs all the polish, accessibility, and strategy that were sorely missing in Force Collection, even if it's not an entirely fresh spin on collectible card combat.
We’ve got a couple of pretty significant releases leading the week: Supercell’s Boom Beach, which follows the wildly popular Clash of Clans, along with Star Wars: Assault Team, a card-based battler based on A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back. We’ve got several other new releases profiled in the pack, of course, and if you’re a fan of Plants vs. Zombies 2, don’t forget to update to grab the new Far Future update with loads of fresh free content. 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.
Yes, yes, we've got games for you, but first things first. Let's get the business out of the way here first, okay. So we'll hook you up with a great email app and a super clear to-do app (hint, hint) and then we'll get out gaming fingers on. Business before pleasure, little app sale fans, business before pleasure.
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.
