Aftershock brings quick play to card battlers
Aftershock is the new title from Wonderspark that came out of the development of Give Me Fuel (soft launched last year). I’ve been watching the development for just about a year and it’s come a long way. The goal was to come up with a tactical / strategy game that could be played on mobile and in short play times. In this version a single player adventure mode has been added that, in a nice twist, uses location data and fitness records to tailor the characters abilities.
If you like strategy games, but hate the long playtimes, give this a shot.

Mech shooter Warhammer 40,000: Freeblade Will Please Many
The latest in the Warhammer super-genre is out in this free to play mech battler. Taking command of an Imperial Knight mech in this shooter / battler is pretty epic. The graphics are pretty good, but the game is not without issue. Then again, what game is?
Mobile-centric bite sized missions and constant upgrades to the mech repeat as the player navigates through an endless set of missions to help retake a planet. It’s a shooter lovers perfect mobile game, that’s for sure. But it left me wondering what if the free to play mechanics weren’t so strong and the game had a stronger story and action focus?
Those with an iPhone 6s or 6s+ can take advantage of 3D Touch to have extra control of the weapons, as shown during the iPhone 6s launch keynote. This game will please many — but I found that the missions were just too short, and the required upgrades too numerous for the game to be enjoyable for me.

Rocky Balboa Coaches You in Real Boxing 2 Creed
Vivid Games has released their much anticipated follow up to the awesome Real Boxing. This time round it is branded with the upcoming Rocky franchise spin off, Creed.
The graphics on this game are amazing — partially thanks to the Unreal Engine used. It’s also a very strategic game and not just a button masher like many similar games. Figuring out when to punch, when to guard, and when to charge ahead will be key in conquering this game. Look for open spots and choose the type of punch to fit that hole. Personally, I’m getting destroyed.
Overall a good free to play sports related game, great graphics, a great fit for boxing fans.

Touch Arcade Chooses Super Boys as their Game of the Week
Touch Arcade takes a look at Super Boys – The Big Fight by Mooff Games and awards it game of the week:
Super Boys is set up like a TV show fighting tournament, sort of like Smash TV, with an over-the-top announcer, a studio audience, and fabulous prizes. At first you’ll be confined to the single-player tournament which has you fighting up twenty floors of a massive tower with each floor containing four normal fights followed by a boss fight. Once you’ve beaten the first floor, you’ll be given a second character as a prize, and introduced to the mechanics of setting up and upgrading your own team of fighters.
If you’re a fan of fighting games or any of Mooff’s previous games, give Super Boys a try. It’s free after all. It does have a learning curve, but it’s worth sticking with. Especially make sure you pay attention to upgrading your characters and team stats, otherwise it can feel overly difficult. Once things click though, Super Boys is some of the most fun I’ve had on iOS in some time. Oh, and as an extra little bonus, Mooff’s entire iOS library is free right now, so it’s a good time to stock up on any of their games you might have missed.
