As of this year, Google Play and Apple’s App Store contain more than 1,000,000 apps each. One million. With that amount of options, it can be difficult to choose which games to download on a week-to-week basis.
Luckily for you, we at The Game Fanatics will be picking out a handful of titles each week that we think you should be on the lookout for. In this edition we highlight The Walking Dead’s newest episode, some classic Tomb Raider, and an original stealth game that will have you re-thinking what a mobile game can be. Disclosure: Our apologies this week, Android users.
Cut the Rope 2
An App Store review for Cut the Rope 2: I LOVE CUT THE ROPE, EXPERIMENT, TIME TRAVEL, AND NOW IT’S CUT THE ROPE 2!!!! I LOVE IT. Expected for Android in early 2014.
The Walking Dead: Season 2: Episode 1
Developer: Telltale Games
Most people are well aware of Telltale’s critically acclaimed The Walking Dead game by now. The first episode of its second season came out this week for multiple platforms, including iOS, and this time around players step into the shoes of Clementine. Holy headshot, is she cute.
This attractive stealth game has been getting a healthy amount of attention from game sites, and some have likened it to Metal Gear Solid. Unfortunately, Republique isn’t available for Android, but Camouflaj founder Ryan Payton recently told Pocket Gamer that “…Android is definitely a platform we’re interested in.”
Tomb Raider 1
Developer: Core Design (original)
Square Enix has re-released Lara Croft’s very first adventure on iPhone and iPad, and they say it’s barely been touched. If you were ever curious about where Tomb Raider got its start, this is as good a time as you’re gonna get.
The Shadow Sun
Developer: Ossian Studios
The Shadow Sun was announced all the way back in 2010, and fans can finally get their hands on this original Western RPG from Ossian Studios. An intriguing fantasy story, real-time 3D combat, and a shared ancestry with games like The Elder Scrolls make this title one to look out for. Note that Ossian Studios have previously worked on games in the D&D and Neverwinter Nights series.
