The App Store is Back in full Swing! Hot New Games this Week include Joe Danger, The Blockheads, Time Surfer, and More
It didn’t take long for the App Store to get over its holiday hangover and return with a vengeance for 2013. This week’s batch of hot new games doesn’t disappoint, with lots of casual titles and even a game about a sleeping kitten. Trailers and more below.
It’s not the first time that an Xbox Live Arcade game migrated to the App Store, and hopefully Joe Danger will survive the leap. This game sells for $2.99 and involves a stuntman whose goal is to spell “danger” by completing dangerous tasks.
At first glance, this is Tiny Wings with a arcadey-makeover, but we shouldn’t be too quick to pass judgement. It’s set in space and has a “rewind” feature, and you can test it all out for 99 cents.
You’d be right in calling Minecraft to mind after seeing these screenshots, but our sources say The Blockheads might even do that classic game one better with this free offering… Consider us interested!
The only RPG of note this week, Zenonia 5 can be yours at no cost. From the outside, it’s hard to tell what’s different since the last installment, but fans of the genre might want to check it out.
I am Vegend: Zombiegeddon
You have plants and zombies fighting amongst each other. No, it’s not Plant VS Zombies. It’s I am Vegend: Zombiegeddon. Stop the zombie horde with your veggy heroes. It is an interesting take on the castle defense genre. There is also a free trial version to let you test the game.
Wake the Cat
Something about this one just feels right. It must be the combination of a cute kitten and simple flick controls that seems to make Wake the Cat perfect for an all-ages hit. At 99 cents, we’ll find out soon if this kitty is the next big thing from Chillingo.
You don’t need to be wearing any plaid to take an interest in Death Golf. This title from Ayopa is a mash-up that adds plenty of action in with the sports, and for 99 cents it might be worth it just to find out exactly how golf can be deadly.
If you’ve been waiting for an App Store game featuring a warrior princess, here it is. Little Amazon comes to us from Bulkypix, and it features a character named Lily in some endless action that’s free to try.
