Mekorama

3D robot puzzle game Mekorama is fun, charming, and unique

From Martin Magni, the developer of the great Odd Bot Out, Mekorama hit the App Store this week. This charming puzzle game has the player guide a robot through a series of very unique 3D puzzles. The puzzles have shades of Monument Valley without the Escher inspired vibe.

One of the features that really sets this game apart from others is the integrated level editor. This lets players create their own levels and share them via a simple QR code integrated image. Take a look at the new levels shared on Twitter with the #Mekorama hashtag. I’ve even created one to test the path finding skills of that little robot.

Mekorama is free in the App Store with a pay what you want price model.

Evo Explores

Puzzle game Evo Explores is great for fans of Monument Valley

There have been a lot of games that have aped the style of Monument Valley, but not that have really gotten the idea and complexity of the game. That is until Evo Explores. Evo Explores really understand the game and does a great job of adding puzzle types to the original that it unashamedly takes inspiration from. It’s so good that members of the Monument Valley team have remarked how impressed they are.

But beside that, the game can stand on its own as well. It’s a great suspension of belief type puzzler with new and interesting mechanics and is just plain fun. The story that goes along is a little weak, but then again that’s just a small part of the game. Well worth a download.

The follow up to the great Furdemption, King Rabbit has the same charm, but even better puzzles. Jump King Rabbit around to find a path to the jailed bunny citizen, avoiding traps and unlocking passages. With 120 levels, and presumably more on the way, this game is a pleasure to play.

THUMB.RUN

The best game you aren’t playing this week - Thumb.Run

I originally heard about Thumb.Run on <a href=”http://www.producthunt.com” rel=”nofollow”>Product Hunt</a>, downloaded it and ignored it for a while. But then I decided to launch it and an hour goes by and my phone battery dies. Yeah, I like this game, so I think I should write about it.

Thumb.Run is a game where the players run around a course that looks like it’s from a platformer game. Three laps against an opponent, fastest time wins. Seems simple, but it’s deceptively difficult, maddeningly addictive, and loads of fun. There are new runners to unlock and power ups available along with multiple courses. It’s $0.99 and worth a look if you like fun.

Fish!

Freeverse heritage lives on in Fish!

Flick Fishing was one of the original great fishing arcade games on iOS. Well Freeverse got swallowed by ngmoco:), which was swallowed by DeNA. And DeNA really only hits our radar these days because they are making mobile games for Nintendo. So Freeverse is long gone, but not forgotten.

But, the heritage lives on in Fish! from Strange Flavour. If you liked Flick Fishing, or like fishing games, give this a shot. Also available for Apple TV, which is a bonus.

Train Conductor World: European Railway

Train Conductor World Leaves the Station Right on Schedule

The folks at Voxel Agents are a little obsessed with trains and with making really good train games. And that’s OK. Or great if we are talking about Train Conductor World.

Starting out on a European map, the game combines multi-level train routing puzzles with quick thinking and collecting. Expanding the rail map leads to new cities and new types of puzzles to solve. It’s a really well thought out puzzle game that turns the level map on it’s ear by letting the player control where to go next by where they lay the train track pieces.

A great follow up to the Train Conductor series from Voxel Agents!

Clash Royale

Clash Royale Sees Worldwide Release (Finally!)

Clash Royale has been a major consumer of my time over the past couple months. I have been heralding it as the best game ever seen and now it’s available for all to play.

This game could be described as MOBA-lite or Hearthstone-lite. But really it’s neither. It’s a mash up of so many genres that it’s almost it’s own. Great game mechanics that are a ton of fun and it’s actually a game that take skill, timing, and planning.

In speaking to friends it seems like this game is really sticking with people that didn’t really take to Clash of Clans. A dream come true for a company like Supercell. So if you did or didn’t like Clash of Clans, give this a shot, it might be your next favorite game.
