Pack your suitcase, kiss your kids goodbye: come June 9th you’re set to be jetting off with astragon’s new flight simulation release, Take Off - The Flight Simulator.
For those who find flying a disconcerting prospect in reality, or just really fancy the idea of soaring into the skies from their office chair, this title offers an immersive experience without the hassle of, you know, having to attend a flight school and buy your own plane.
Two parts action RPG and one part endless runner, Nonstop Knight lives up to its name. Perhaps no one has battled fantasy monsters quite like the titular paladin of flaregames' latest, who even battles enemies when you're logged out of the game. Until there's a boss fight, anyway.
Still, his skill and courage only get him so far. He's going to need the best possible gear in order to continue his neverending quest.
iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad
It's often said that you can't get something for nothing. That thinking has been in the news a lot as of late, with airlines making changes to frequent flyer programsto work via dollars spent instead of miles flown.
Alas, there's still a place where you can be rewarded for loyalty, and it's on your smartphone or tablet. Apps like T-Mobile Tuesdays, which has rocketed to the top of the App Store free app chart, are proof of that.
Pairing slick visuals with a frustratingly addictive premise, ZPlay’s Inner Circle is a must-play for anybody who enjoys a good time-sensitive puzzle game. Using a simplistic (but highly effective) layout, the game is opened up to a vast demographic of players – young and old.
To succeed at the game, players must work to line up rings of colour to match that of the ‘inner circle’, whilst the ring shrinks in size and looms closer to its orbit. If players don’t line up the colour before the ring hits the centre - by tapping the screen to rotate and swiping to shrink faster - they will lose the game.
With an impressive 250 levels to get stuck into, the title offers extensive gameplay and promises to get right under the skin of its players. Perfect for those who lean towards brain-training and cognitive challenges, with its Tetris-esque format.
Inner Circle possesses a selection of interesting features, including a night-mode to ensure the brightness of the nigh-neon colours doesn’t affect eyesight, and an Arcade mode that allows players to plough through levels indefinitely. The night modeis achieved by altering the colour scheme presented in the original version of the game.
The title will be available soon, for iOS devices, so keep circling in on that App Store!

"Wait a minute," you say. "Surely that has to be a mistake. Isn't the whole point of slither.io that it features multiplayer snake action?"
Indeed it is, and while not ever having met the insanely popular game's creator Steve Howse personally, I'd expect he knows enough to not mess up the good thing he's got going. However, there's also something to be said for making a mobile game accessible to the widest possible audience, which is what the latest update to slither.io has done.
There's no escaping Snapchat. Not only is it the dominant force among free photo-sharing apps at the moment, it's also increasingly become the app of choice for text messaging among teens and young adults. After all, why use a separate app for messaging when you can do it from the same one you use to share images and videos too?
That said, there is life beyond Snapchat. A number of free iPhone and iPad apps are out there that allow users to easily communicate with friends and loved ones without necessarily needing to download the current industry leader. Let's take a look at five of them that are currently popular on the App Store charts.
Unless you're under the age of 2, you don't have to think much about walking. You just do it.
Not so in Steppy Pants, the "walking simulator" that has captured the imagination of a big chunk of the mobile gaming audience. With its blocky graphics and simple, one-touch gameplay, it quickly calls to mind titles like Crossy Road, but it also throws ragdoll physics into the mix to create a winning formula all its own.
It's not often that a restaurant chain has its app hit the top of the U.S. App Store chart. In fact, it's hard to remember it ever happening before.
Yet Chik-fil-A has managed to do just that with Chik-fil-A One, its new app that launched on iOS in May. What's made it so popular? Giving away chicken sandwiches, as it turns out, is a primo way to get folks to download something.
If you've spent any time playing Transformers: Earth Wars, you've no doubt discovered that attacking enemy bases is much simpler than defending your own. As the attacker, you've got multiple Autobots or Decepticons at your command, all with their own unique special abilities.
Meanwhile, your base has mostly static weapons and a lone bot to keep things safe on the home front. Yet there's no need for despair. Follow our base defence tips and tricks and you'll have the best possible chance to keep the opposing faction from making off with all your hard-earned resources.
iPhone/iPad users are in luck: slickly animated RTS game Battleplans is now available for iOS systems from the App Store.
