It sounds like nothing anyone would ever want to play, but once you start it’s incredibly tough to stop. I’m talking about Clicker Heroes, an idle tapping game 148Apps enjoyed quite a bit. From the 4 star review:
Essentially, Clicker Heroes is a game that plays itself and yet you’ll find yourself checking in so often. As you keep playing, new things unlock. You’ll find yourself able to join clan and participate in multiplayer battles, but it’ll take you a while to get that far. Clicker Heroes trickle feeds such content though so you’ll soon end up under its spell.
It’s a $9.99 kind of day, I guess. Dragon Quest V is on sale for that price, and so is the excellent platformer Adventures of Pip, which also got an update that improves the touchscreen controls.. Get it now unless you want to pay the regular price of $14.99.

For the first time since its iOS release, Dragon Quest 5 has gone on sale for $9.99, down from $14.99. It’s a game anyone interested in RPGs should play, but don’t take my word for it. From Touch Arcade:
Dragon Quest 5 is regarded by many series fans, including myself, to be the peak of the franchise. It tells a touching story of one person’s life, from childhood all the way through parenthood. It doesn’t just lean on its story, however. The game also introduced monster-catching mechanics, allowing you to fill out your party with the enemies you meet along the way. In most other regards, it’s a fairly typical Dragon Quest game, meaning it’s a whole lot of JRPG comfort food. If you want more information on the game, please check out my review. It’s one of my very favorite RPGs of all-time.
An incredibly fun adventure across a floating world, where you fire yourself out of powerful cannons!
Meet Bullet Boy, the courageous kid who rushes to escape a deadly tornado, while he tries to collect the missing pieces of some very mysterious, and fascinating statues.
Packed with highly dynamic mechanics. Avoid birds, buildings and weird machines, tap rapidly to dodge fast-moving obstacles, aim precisely to get to the next cannon, or shoot to the sky to elude multiple obstacles altogether, and quickly get to your goal!
Zach Gage has a way of making old games refreshing and new again and Zach has done it again. This time with solitaire by mashing it up with poker in Sage Solitaire. It’s a simple game to play, but hard to get a great score on (mine is 1580).
Breakneck is a departure for PikPok, one I hope to see more of. This futuristic escape racing sim looks great.

Ski Safari takes all that was great about the original and it’s 140 million downloads and amps every thing up. More of everything in a game can sometimes be too much, but Ski Safari 2 gets it just right and doesn’t lose the charm of the original.
Touch Arcade has the rundown on the big games launching tonight on iOS. There’s lots of good-looking stuff across a variety of genres, but not much you might have heard of before. Except Ski Safari 2, which will be excellent if it’s anything like its predecessor. Anyway, click ahead to see what’s coming out at 11 p.m. EST.
Pac-Man 256 was made by Hipster Whale, the Crossy Road folks, but it’s not exactly the game most fans know and love. In fact, it’s a different game altogether, even though it looks similar. From 148Apps’s 3.5 star review:
You’ll spend much of your time with PAC-MAN 256 trying to beat your previous high score an your earlier dot combo, but besides score chasing, there are limited reasons to come back for more. You can’t unlock new characters or areas so the game stays mostly the same no matter what.
While being free, you don’t have to worry about an energy meter with credits only used if you want to activate a power-up, but longevity is going to be the issue for PAC-MAN 256. It’s great fun for a time, but you’ll soon start to wish there was more of an aim to what unfolds here.
