Tofu Hunter: Not Enough Meat

If you’re in the mood for a hunting game but don’t want to hurt virtual animals, try this game, which has you hunt virtual tofu. From Pocket Gamer’s 6 out of 10 review:

The shooting here is perfectly solid, but as you get to the later levels you’ll find yourself having to pump tofu blocks full of ridiculous numbers of bullets to take them down.

Obviously you can upgrade your weapons, but it takes a decent amount of grind, and some waiting, if you don’t want to spend.

This isn’t the best Adult Swim game on the App Store, but it has its moments. And you don’t have to spend anything to give it a try.

Fragger 2 Review: Frag Harder

The original Fragger was a grenade-tossing blast. The sequel is out now, and 148Apps finds it not quite up to the level of the original, which released five years ago, by the way. From the review:

If I have one primary complaint with Fragger 2, it’s that it doesn’t use its most interesting features often enough. Gravity puzzles are usually a one or two-step process, and the propelled explosives are usually just there to say “hey, you see that guy who seems impossible to hit? Use this.” Also, for a physics-based game itseems awfully contrived how levels have very specific solutions that don’t really allow for much experimentation.

Smurfs’ Village and the Magical Meadow Review: Smurfs Tapped out

If you’ve been paying attention to iOS gaming for a while you may remember the hullabaloo around the original Smurf Village game, in which kids bankrupted their parents by buying endless amounts of Smurf Berries. That game now has a town-building sequel. From Gamezebo’s 3.5 out of 5 star review:

Smurfs’ Village and the Magical Meadow doesn’t offer the massive amount of content you might find in The Simpsons: Tapped Out, nor does it have the same level of humor or charm (though the Smurfs do have some amusing interactions in the aforementioned cinema scenes). Still, if you’re a fan of the franchise, or you have a youngster who loves the little blue gnomes, playing Magical Meadow is certainly preferable to, say, having tea and crumpets with Gargamel.

Looks like Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic 2 is Coming to Mobile

It seems as if Aspyr is bringing Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords to mobile platforms. That’s if this ESRB rating is anything to go by. From Touch Arcade:

KOTOR 2 wasn’t made by BioWare as the original was, instead it was made by Obsidian Entertainment. There’s not as high a reputation due to the game being rushed into completion, which hurt its reviews as there was a lot of cut content and plenty of bugs, but the latter could certainly be fixed with cleaned-up ports to new platforms. And at worst, more KOTOR is not a bad thing. Plus, even at a $9.99 price point like the first KOTOR was, the cost-per-hour with this game is absurd. The original holds up really well, so get excited for this.

Knights of Pen & Paper 2 Review: Breaking the Fourth Wall

The original Knights of Pen & Paper was pretty amazing. The sequel does its best, but comes up a little short. But don’t hold that against it. From Gamezebo’s 4 out of 5 star review:

Knights of Pen and Paper II tries hard to recapture the magic of its predecessor by simultaneously reveling in and poking fun at RPG tropes, but while there’s still plenty to admire, it’s not quite as engrossing as the original.

Goat Simulator GoatZ Review: Not All That

The zombie-themed goat physics game Goat Simulator GoatZ is not a bad game, says Pocket Gamer, but it hasn’t quite lived up to its endless potential. From their 6 out of 10 review:

GoatZ, then, is essentially more Goat Simulator, but smaller and with a new layout and an end-of-the-world zombie apocalypse theme. That’s either the biggest recommendation or the biggest warning I can give you.

The Guitar Hero reboot promises to be quite unlike most of the games that came before it. For one thing, it will have a full plastic instrument version available on iOS, if the marketing is to be believed. If you’re into that sort of thing, you’ll probably be interested in knowing that Activision has announced 24 songs that will appear in the game. Here’s a sampling of the songs headed our way, but check out Touch Arcade’s article here for the full list.

The Rolling Stones – “Paint it Black”
Skrillex – “Bangarang”
The War on Drugs – “Under the Pressure”
Black Veil Brides – “In The End”
Rage Against the Machine – “Guerrilla Radio”

Heroes and Castles 2 Review: Bigger and Better

Castle defense games come and go, but Heroes and Castles 2 is here to stay. At least that’s how 148Apps views it in their 4.5 out of 5 star review.

It has this interesting sense of progression that makes every game feel like you’re accomplishing something, whether it’s taking over a new outpost so that you can start using priests or fighting through a few waves to save up for an upgrade. It can also be played in bite-sized chunks or for extended sessions, whichever you’re in the mood for, without losing any of its appeal.

Knights & Snails Review: Medieval Strategery

You’ve probably been in the market for a decent jousting game on iOS for a while, right? Look no further: Knights & Snails is the game you seek. From 148Apps’s 4 out of 5 star review:

Essentially, players line up armies of knights into lanes, and the knights in those lanes face off with opposing knights. Once a joust is initiated players then play a mini-game where they have to tapFlappy Bird-style to try and land a meter marker inside the green, ideal portion of a meter. The outcomes of these jousts depends on the stats of each knight, the player’s performance in the mini-game, and a little bit of luck. The ultimate goal is to earn more points in a battle than the opponent by the time the final round is over.

Walking Dead: Season 3 Isn’t Coming this Year, But Something Else Is

Telltale’s PR director Job Stauffer said on Twitter that the next season of the Walking Dead adventure game won’t be launching this year, but something else related to the world of Walking Dead will be. From Touch Arcade:

Yesterday, Stauffer clarified on his Twitter account that TWD S3 won’t be starting in 2015 “but what I am seeing this week will be, and it is insanely cool.” Now, I’m wondering whether what Stauffer will be checking out is related to Fear the Walking Dead, the upcoming spin-off  set in Los Angeles. Or, perhaps, it could be another special episode like The Walking Dead: 400 Days. Personally I still love TWD Telltale games so anything related to that is fine by me. What are you hoping to see?
