Every week, there are tons and tons of games released in the AppStore. Unless you're watching the AppStore 24/7, it's impossible to keep track of them all. And even if you can easily discover the New & Noteworthy games in the designated section in the AppStore, who has the time to do this on a daily, or even weekly basis? So, in case you missed this month's new & noteworthy games, here are 5 of them that we really liked.
Injustice: Gods Among Us
With Injustice: Gods Among Us, it was love at first play. The name of the game and the icon were enough to make me download it. And even now, after playing the game almost every day, I still can't believe it's free.
From the amazing graphics to the extremely intuitive game play, Injustice is probably the best game released in April. The plot is simple: you have a team of 3 superheroes, and your goal is to beat other superheroes. With every battle you win, your superheros' power and health increases, plus you get coins you can use to buy other superheroes or power-up cards. Every superhero has a special power that charges as you fight. And even if the defense controls are awful, this is probably the only flaw of the game. Plus, you can easily defeat your opponents using your offensive moves only. Sounds too good to be true? Well, just try it and you'll see.
Iron Man 3
While we're at superhero games, Iron Man 3 is also one of the best games of this end of the month. And, since it has just been released, I say it will also make its mark in May, as well. Especially since Iron Man 3, the movie, will be on everybody's lips this following month.
I haven't seen the movie, yet. But as far as I understand, it's pretty mindblowing. And so is the game. Your goal is to control Iron Man, shooting enemies, and collecting all sorts of gems and power-ups, while avoiding obstacles. The further along you get without crashing, and the more enemies you destroy, the faster you clear the levels. You use all those gems you collect to upgrade your HP, and power. And also to buy new armour and other cool stuff. Always on a mission to complete, with so many great things to buy and collect, Iron Man 3 gives you all the incentive you need to play it on and on, until you forget what time it is. And it's absolutely free of charge. Now, how cool is that?
Stupid Zombies 2
As I've probably said before, I don't like zombie movies, games, and basically anything related to the subject, because I really don't like zombies. What's there to like about them, anyway? But, one thing's for sure: against all odds, I really liked playing Stupid Zombies 2.
It's not because you get to kill all sorts of zombies. It's more about the structure of the game. And the nice design, of course. Stupid Zombies 2 is more strategy than unloading your gun like a maniac, whenever you see a zombie. These zombies don't come at you, your life is in no danger. But the environment protects them. And you have to learn to use this environment against them. Know where to aim to cause as much damage as you can. Because, after all, you have a limited number of bullets per level. And not too many options. So, you must turn your strategical thinking on to kill those stupid zombies.
If I had to pick one word to describe Endless Road, this would be: simple. Simple, not easy. Simple design, simple controls, simple game play. Basically, the only thing you have to do, is is keep your car on the road as this road is collapsing behind it. Sounds easy, right? Well, did I mention there's no acceleration button?
All you can do with your car is move from right to left. Go over the red arrows to accelerate. But be carful about the grey ones, because they slow your car down. Go over the question mark icons to uncover all sorts of power-ups, and also try to collect as many coins on the way as you can. All this, while paying attention to the collapsing road behind you. The more miles you travel before the ground underneath your car collapses, the more points you earn. So, good luck! You're gonna need it.
I see logo quizzes, and quizzes, in general, as good time wasters for a coffee break, or while you're waiting for the bus. But I must admit this Logo Quiz got me pretty addicted.
As expected, you have a bunch of logos you have to identify. But the first plus with Logo Quiz is that it's well structured. 10 levels with increased difficulty. Also, you can't just jump to any level you want. You have to guess a certain number of logos at each level in order to advance to the next level. That's one incentive. And there are also others. For example, the more logos you get right, the more hints you get, to help you guess the more difficult logos that leave you absolutely clueless. Plus, you also get to learn interesting stuff about the brands, as you guess certain logos. And when the game also has a funny story behind it, what more can you ask from a quiz?
