SpinnyWings

"One Touch Flying Mayhem!" - Spinnywings brings memories of the arcade to mobile

Single button control games aren’t usually my thing. They generally lack any sort of replayability. But in this case it’s an design decision that actually works out well as it keep the game arcade-like. In Spinnywings you touch the screen to turn right, avoid other planes and gather balloons for power-ups, loot, and fuel. Arcade fun through and through.

Spin your way across the sky and collect balloons. Unlock loot crates and collect 10 different aircraft along with a ton of different boosts, paint schemes and streamers.

See how long you can resist the massed forces of Evil Air Corporation’s zeppelins, fighters, bombers, choppers and air mines!

Evergrow

Evergrow is a polished and challenging puzzler

The premise of Evergrow is simple — combine the same color blocks to create a larger and larger square. The level based game play keeps the game from getting stale or too difficult too quickly. It all seems pretty standard, but something happened when I was playing the game, Evergrow grew on me. The little touches like haptic feedback, customization, and a great soundtrack set this apart from other simple puzzlers. Give it a shot!

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!

Globber's Escape

Globber’s Escape a "solid little take" on Pac-Man Genre - Touch Arcade

While there are plenty of Pac-Man games on iOS, Globber’s Escape is still a solid little take on the genre. And its touch controls where you just tap where you want Globber to go work well to where it’s kind of a surprise more normal Pac-Man games just don’t use that. Anyway, it’s still a pretty solid little game to check out, and if you haven’t, now’s not a bad time with the game’s update available on iOS.

Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories

Decade old Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories ported to iOS - Perfect 5/5 from Touch Arcade

These games were all phenomenal when they were released, Rockstar knows what they’re doing when it comes to porting them, and it’s hard to beat the price to hours of potential gameplay ratio, particularly when considering you can play a GTA game nearly infinitely if you enjoy just rampaging around the city, getting your wanted level up, and seeing how long you can survive. Of course there’s loads of side quests too, giving you even more to do in a game that’s already packed with content.
If you’re into the idea of playing a GTA game but aren’t sure which one to get, I’d definitely start with San Andreas first. It was designed with the scope of console play in mind, and I think the game world is just a little more interesting. That being said, if you’ve been playing along with every GTA release Rockstar has made on iOS over the years, Liberty City Stories is every bit as must-have as the rest of them.
