In this week's giveaway we've got not one, not two, but three fantastic games up for grabs! Prizes include the definitive edition of Mad 'O' Ball 3D, a smashing exclusive in the shape of the as yet unreleased The Fish Dies in the End and critically acclaimed shoot-em-up Interstellar Force!
I'm not sure if the soothing piano music which gently plays throughout, the chimerical visuals being bathed in soft and warm pastel hues, or simply the relaxed and relaxing pace of the gameplay were to blame, but a few levels into Bubble Dreams, I felt my eyelids beginning to close of their own accord.
Five out of five chimps agree: this mega collaboration from Monkube and a number of art studios is the best darn iteration of "lunar lander" you'll find on the iOS. Boasting perfectly fine-tuned physics, a wonderfully illustrated sci-fi story filled with as many twists as the game's complex levels, and a pick-up-and-play interface, 6th Planet gives the iOS gamer just about everything he or she would ever look for in a videogame -- and then some!
Based on an award-winning Flash game, Backabit's Ramps has been tweaked and enhanced in all the right places for its iOS debut. And once you spend a little time with this endearingly back-to-basics puzzler, it's not hard to see why almost a million people found themselves hooked on the title's well-observed brand of fast-paced, physics-based problem solving.
While Korean devs have shown they really know how to put the "Action" in Action RPG, EXE Create and FDG Entertainment bring us back to an era when the genre wasn't so much about combat, and clever dungeon puzzles instead reigned supreme. Its gameplay style may be a bit of an adjustment for players used to the typical genre offerings on this platform, but Across Age DX is so well executed as to make it a must-play title for Action RPG fans equipped with appropriate iDevices.
