Self-improvement sounds easy on paper, but it's a lot tougher to actually execute. A large part of that is motivating yourself to get off the couch or step away from whatever may be your time-waster of choice and get stuff done. It's easy to become a lump, but now that the weather is steadily getting warmer you might have renewed energy to take on some of those projects you've been meaning to do.
There are a bunch of helpful apps that can get you started on the path to betterment. Here are five of the best apps that turn daily drudgery into fun games.
Transformers: Forged to Fight is a multiplayer brawler that pulls no punches. You get to traverse the world, slowly building up a team of your own, custom-trained autobots. The game has a AAA sheen -- the bots are gorgeously animated, and fighting is fast and fun. With that said, there are many layers of complexity in this game that take a bit of research to truly master. Combat is just one of the facets you'll need to master in this new punch'em up. Here are a few tips to help you get ahead in a fight.
It's not easy keeping secrets on the internet, so it's not especially surprising that astute Sonic fans found that Gameloft had accidentally leaked Sonic Runners Adventure on their customer support page. Oops. Sonic Runners took the 2D platforming stylings of traditional Sonic games and turned it into an endless runner. It was a nice throwback, though hindered by frustrating IAPs.
Sure, we usually save our discount round-ups for the weekend, but we couldn't resist sharing this news. Raw Fury is having a pretty generous spring sale at the moment, offering 66% discounts on most of their mobile titles, including some of our favorite mobile releases of the past few months.
Faily Tumbler is the latest endless runner from Spunge Games, purveyors of other Faily games like Faily Brakes. In past entries, you were, as the name suggests, careening downhil on a vehicle with malfunctioning brakes. If you crashed, your poor character would ragdoll about until coming to a jumbled stop. Faily Tumbler focuses purely on the falling bits of these games.
It's your job to keep tumbling for as long as possible, simultaneously outrunning an intense lava flow from an erupting volcano and dodging a mess of spikey plants, whirlpools, and firey magma pools. It's not easy, especially when falling uncontrollably. Fortunately we have a few tips to help you succeed.
Another weekend means another App Store bargain roundup. This week didn't disappoint, with another diverse range of games receiving hefty discounts. These are the best games you can pick up on the cheap through Sunday.
All right, so this week may have been sparse as far as new releases go. We're looking at it as an opportunity to catch up on titles that fell to the wayside during the past busier weeks. That doesn't mean, however, that there aren't any new games to play at the moment. As it's the weekend, it's time, once more, to take a look back and check out the best games that launched over the last few days.
Robot Unicorn Attack has come a long way since it first appeared on the web in 2010. Throughout the years, Adult Swim Games' signature title has treated us to plentiful sparkles, faeries, cheesy Erasure tunes, and the cheery reminder that death is always imminent. We'll get another chance to experience the magic soon, as Robot Unicorn Attack 3 arrives next week.
Transformers: Forged to Fight, the latest mobile game from Kabam, puts you at the fore of the fight between the Autobots and the Decepticons. It's an action RPG that lets you create teams of transformers from famous characters throughout the series' long history.
Pirates of the Carribbean simulator Tempest will be making landfall on both iOS and Android later this month. It's an action RPG that sets you loose on the open ocean, searching for treasure, building forts, and other pirate-y undertakings. The project is quite ambitious in scale. As the captain of your own vessel, the sky really is the limit.
It's been an amazing few weeks for mobile indie games, and that trend is continuing asTo the Moonarrives on iOS and Android in May. It's a solo indie project made in RPG Maker, but the game has made waves for its emotional impact and fine storytelling.
