Each week, a ton of new games hit the App Store. While Apple tries to curate that by narrowing it down to a couple of dozen on the Best New Games section, it’s not enough. We’ve gone one step further and brought it down to six games you should check out.
Telepaint is a cute but simple looking puzzle game. It sees you activating portals in order to carry buckets of paint through various levels. It starts out pretty simple, but it soon gets more challenging. Don’t expect to finish this one in the space of a couple of days. It’s going to tax you.
A challenging game of connect the dots, Dirac doesn’t quite hit the spot every time, but for a twist on a traditional format, it’s kind of appealing. The game has you drawing lines between dots, trying to ensnare others within them for maximum points. It’s mindless fun for a little while.
Fancy hacking and slashing without putting much thought into it? Legacy Quest will appeal then. Offering over 70 dungeons to check out, think of it asDiablo but faster. It won’t tax your brain or stick in your mind for long, but it’s pretty fun while you’re playing.
After rave reviews on other formats, it’s safe to say that Retro City Rampage DX is a must buy. With a plethora of missions to pursue, there’s a ton to do as you explore its 1980s open world full of crime and pop culture references. It’s really rather special.
Incorporating tower defense with plenty of upgrading options, Timenauts is DeNA’s latest, which means, yes, a fair amount of in-app purchases. It also means that it’s an entertaining experience, amongst those pauses. It’s a colorful experience full of quirky cartoon characters. With quests to complete, as well as PvP to partake in, there’s plenty of action to sink your teeth into, too.
Want to match up tiles to make coffee? That’s the thinking behind Barista Blitz. It might not be anything particularly innovative, but it’s a solidly dependable Match-3 game that encourages you to create various tasty treats along the way. Expect the urge for coffee to kick in fast.
