USM’s Catan Universe lives up to its billing of being the “ultimate” digital version of Klaus Teuber’s classic board game. Longtime Catan fans will no doubt enjoy the wealth of content and features, while newcomers will appreciate just how accessible USM have made the game. Both the free base version and IAP extras come highly recommended.
Super Chuckie EggiOS
Ultimately though you’ll jump back in every time because Super Chuckie Egg is such a pleasant, charming, easygoing experience from beginning to end. From the richly detailed visuals and animations to the deceptively deep platforming gameplay, this is a great example of how to modernize a distinguished franchise.
I can honestly say Curling Buddies is the best curling-based video game I’ve ever played — and not just because it’s the only one! Intuitive controls, challenging gameplay, adorable visuals, and a cool unlockable zombie mode all make this one a joy to play. Pastille have outdone themselves once again!
Roto Strike is a simple yet seriously stunning and addictive arcade shooter. The gameâs kaleidoscopic visuals will captivate you while the action-packed and entertaining gameplay will keep you hooked until you complete all 40 levels. Highly recommended!
MaxDominator is a wonderfully clever and compelling combination of dominoesÂ and Tetris. The game is perhaps a little lacking in the visual flair department, but it more than makes up for that withÂ excitingly cerebral gameplay and a very generous amount of content. WellÂ worth the $0.99 asking price.
Fidget Spinner CollectioniOS
Fidget Spinner Collection is a decent little time killer that revolves around collecting, upgrading and playing with fidget spinners. Much like the toys that inspired it, it’s a game that some will instantly write off as tedious and pointless, but that others will find hypnotically fun.
Steampumpkins: PvP CatapultiOS
Steampumpkins is a deliciously weird and action-packed artillery game that sees players around the world engaging in intense pumpkin-slinging duels. The core gameplay is wonderfully captivating, and the stylish steampunk-y aesthetic and impressive production values really help catapult the game to another level of special.
Bomb Bro’s isn’t the deepest or most polished game ever, but it more than makes up for any shortcomings by being ridiculously easy to pick up and explosively fun to play. The only real let down with this free-to-play arena-based shooter is that its multiplayer mode is a total ghost town at present.
Whoever said “you can’t improve on a masterpiece,” obviously hasn’t played Framed 2. This game cleverly and artfully builds on its predecessor’s most celebrated features — the innovative panel-switching mechanic, elaborate puzzle designs and comic book-inspired look and feel — while also going in its own direction with new characters and a more playful, caperish tone.
MailGamer delivers on its interesting concept and serves up an enjoyable means of playing simple games like Tic-Tac-Toe and Battleship with your friends using email messages. This is the kind of app I can really see brightening up a dull school or work day!
TRANSFORMERS: Forged to FightiOS
Unfortunately — as evidenced by the fact I haven’t given this a 5.0 — Kabam instead decided to toss in everything imaginable, alongside a Cybertronian sink, to produce the biggest mélange of interlocking madness I’ve ever before witnessed. While some may have the cast-iron stomach needed to ignore this and focus just on the sweet sweet combat, there’s currently at least hope — for everyone else — that Kabam will tune this up.
Binary Dash is a blazingly fast-paced, reaction-based auto-runner that boasts simple-yet-challenging gameplay, lots of content, and gorgeously colorful visuals. The free version is a must-get if you like this kind of game, but don’t be surprised if you find yourself powerless not to plunk down the asking price to unlock the rest of the levels. It’s just THAT fun!
