The App Store has quite an exciting lineup of discount games this week that range across a variety of genres. It's a great opportunity to catch up on some of the premium games you may have been holding off on -- and some you can even grab for free. Here are the best deals happening right now.
Ah, here we are again at the close of another busy week. Don't rest too easy, though. We had a lot of great new releases in mobile games this week, and now you're going to have to spend all weekend playing them. That shouldn't be too much of a chore, considering there were quite a few top notch titles debuting on the App Store this week. Here are our favorites.
Rollercoaster Tycoon recently made its debut a few months ago, with a premium remake of the original two games. If you're looking for something a little more lightweight that might translate better to smaller screens, however, you might want to give Rollercoaster Tycoon Touch a go. It's a free-to-play collectible card game that's classic Rollercoaster Tycoon at its core. The new collectible card elements might be a little strange if you're used to the original Rollercoaster Tycoon, though. We have some advice to help you navigate those choppy waters.
The Rabbids are back in a new endless running adventure, Rabbids Crazy Rush. It's more ridiculous cartoon craziness as you help the little furballs gather enough fuel (soda) to get to the moon. Sure, it's a silly idea, but everyone has dreams -- even little Rabbids. Along the way there are missions to complete and items to collect. If you want to finish your goal in due time, follow these handy tips.
Tiny Striker: World Football, the much anticipated Big Indie Game Pitch winner, arrived on iOS last week and will be rolling onto Android in the next few days. It's a simple, yet truly engrossing little kickabout with a sturdy football manager sim thrown in to create the football game the mobile space has needed for so long. It's easy to get into, but spreads out into dozens of layers that will hook you in for hours and hours.
With that said, there's a lot to learn before you can become a wise, skillfull football player. We have a few tips for managing your player's skills, training, and marketing to advance your little footballer's career to the highest level. Let's get started.
Futurama is finding a new home on mobile in TinyCo and Fox Interactive's new game, Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow. They're really doing it up, bringing on board Futurama creator Matt Groening along with the original cast and writers. TinyCo wants the game to be a faithful recreation of the cartoon series' signature goofs.
QuickByte Games has another arcade treat in the works -- this time it's a mishmash of brick breaking and Pinball mechanics. It's called Blasty Bubs, and it's a top down brickbreaker that has you slinging balls around a board.
Generation 2 finally launched in Pokémon GO, unleashing a brand new batch of Pokémon into the wild. Even before the update went live people were speculating on how to catch elusive Pokémon like the legendary "dogs", Unknown, and whether or not there would be new regional exclusive Pokémon. The answer to that last question is a resounding yes, it turns out, thanks to the astute researchers over on The Silph Road subreddit.
There's finally video evidence of Alto's Odyssey, the follow up to the 2015 App Store hit, Alto's Adventure. It looks just as soothing and atmospheric as Alto's last outing, but this time players will be journeying to the desert. Whereas Alto's Adventure featured an endless playground of pine forests and snowy slopes, it seems that we'll be traversing sand dunes this go around. Despite these big, environmental changes, it looks like the beloved llamas will still be playing a role in Odyssey and Alto's iconic wingsuit will be returning.
At long last, Niantic Labs finally unleashed the Generation 2 Pokémon into the wild. Pokémon GO trainers are scrambling to grab up this new set of 80 Pokémon. There are some special new tricks required to catch all of these new beasties, though. Some of the original 151 Pokémon have new evolved forms that require special items. Meanwhile, there are two brand new Eeveelutions for you to acquire. Let's go over the finer details. Onward, young trainer!
It feels as though the New Year got off to a creaking start as far as mobile games go, but that's changed over the past few weeks. The last few days alone have seen the debut of a number of wonderful games, so we thought we'd take the time to highlight some of the best we've played. Let's take a look, shall we?
Digby Forever is a sparkling homage to arcade classics, and while you may be tiring of the number of arcade games being thrown at you, this endless digger finds many ways to stand out from the rest of the pack. The game manages to be challenging without punishing you needlessly. You'll have fun whether you win or lose, but we have a few tricks up our sleeves to keep your drill spinning straight and true.
It's been quite the week in mobile games, but if the latest releases(there were some pretty darn good ones, in case you missed out) aren't really doing the trick, perhaps some of these discounted games will. Many of these premium games had their prices slashed or are completely free for the time being, so snatch them up while you can.
It’s exciting to see Nintendo delving into the mobile sphere, regardless of whether it’s to give fans another platform to enjoy their fans or simply a sound business venture. Two of the company's announced mobile games have finally come to fruition, but they were slightly soiled by iffy free-to-play mechanics and other foibles. Nintendo’s mobile future was called into question, but now things are looking a little sunnier with the latest Fire Emblem Heroes update.
