It's the weekend, which hopefully means blissful free time to devote to games, games, and more games. The App Store has quite a few discounts running through this weekend that you would be sorry to miss. There are some more experimental indie games that are completely free for the next few days, and Asmodee is still running their discount on a number of their digital board games. Let's explore, shall we?
No one does mindless hack and slash quite like a Musou game. What's more fun than single-handedly chopping your way through hundreds of enemies? Now, for the first time ever, that unrivaled experience goes mobile with Dynasty Warriors: Unleashed. It's the Dynasty Warriors you know and love, with the same over-the-top action, but this time it's been designed with touch controls in mind.
Crash of Cars is a fun new entry in the realm of multiplayer beat 'em ups. It's basically bumper cars off the rails -- players drive around in vehicles of their choosing -- anything from a mini-van to the weinermobile in all of its glory -- smashing into and shooting at their opponents. It's good, silly fun.
Sharpen your weapons -- Dynasty Blades is back with new and improved hack n’ slash stylings. The Romance of the Three Kingdoms-inspired action MMORPG introduces a bunch of fun new features in its latest update.
For the uninitiated, Dynasty Blades allows you to create your own legendary hero before sending them into battle against leagues of enemy fighters. It’s a game of fast-paced action, as you create combos in feats of strength and military might.
The latest update, version 2.3, introduces a new hero in the form of Zhang He, one of the Five Generals of Wei. Zhang He is a mage that controls the power of fire.
If slinging fireballs doesn’t excite you, perhaps you’ll be happier to learn that Dynasty Blades is also introducing mounts in today’s update. Now you can ride into battle astride a horse, tiger, jaguar, or many other beasties that can also give you helpful stat buffs.
Two new weekly events are being added to the game’s calendar, as well. The Drop & Exchange event will boost the likelihood you’ll receive rare items for clearing a stage, while the Treasure Plunder event allows you to enter a lottery for some truly excellent prizes.
All told, that’s a pretty hefty update. On top of the fresh content, Dynasty Blades is getting a few system tweaks to ensure the game runs smoothly. Among them, you’ll be able to buy back lost resources from the day before for a small sum of gold or diamonds.

You’re always a hop, skip, and a jump away from a fiery death in Temple Jump, a new platformer-cum-endless runner from Nexx Studio. It’s out now on both iOS and Android if you’re an adventurer seeking treasure in a crumbling, pixel-laden temple.
You play as an adorable “jumper” blob, and there are 33 to collect in all, each with their own distinct design and personality. Guide your jumper through the perilous temple in a quest for the many sparkling gems scattered throughout its cavernous halls. Simply hold your thumb on the screen to charge up a jump and release to fall back to the next platform.
The action plays out across 12 challenge mode levels, though uncovering golden wings teleports you to alternative game modes. Once you can dodge Temple Jump’s many spike traps, falling platforms, and jumping fire balls, you can give endless mode a go. Challenge yourself to see how far you can make it through the temple before inevitably meeting your doom. Be on the lookout for a hidden bonus level, too.
