A pretty little adventure — Brave & Little Adventure launched
This very well animated adventure game, Brave & Little Adventure will be familiar to Tiny Thief fans. It’s got all the charm of that game and even better graphics.
The story unfolds while playing as little red riding hood through a series of screens filled with puzzles and multiple characters. Each of the levels has one or more puzzles to solve and hidden objects to find. A fun little adventure and very well illustrated.

The Craftsman Has Left a Series of Puzzles in The Room 3 from Fireproof Games
The Room was a pleasant and unexpected surprise when it was first released. As was The Room 2. This third installment builds on the past games and brings the graphics up to an unbelievable level.
In The Room 3 you are tasked with solving a series of lushly designed puzzles set by someone known as “The Craftsman.” The whole game is a mystery solved through these virtual / physical puzzles that you poke at, manipulate, and move to solve for the next clue. Set some time aside for this one, you won’t want to stop playing it.
The Room 3 is fantastic and one of the reasons that makes mobile gaming so great. Unique releases, done really well.

Loving Father, Caring Husband, Secret Octopus, and Ridiculous Game, Octodad is Out Now
So here you are, a normal everyday kinda person, just doing ordinary everyday kinda things. Trying to go about your life when people keep looking at you accusingly. It’s almost like they have never seen an octopus dressed up as a human trying to open a particularly difficult door before.
In Octodad, the goal is to go through routine and not so routine things all without a skeletal system and without drawing too much attention to yourself. Controls are pretty good considering lack of said skeleton. Though due to the small size of the screen, they can be difficult at times. All in all a very silly, and very fun game. If you liked Goat Simulator, this will be your new favorite game. For others looking for a challenge, it’s also a great little fun puzzler.

A beautiful hand build world is the setting for Lumino City
The App Store has seen it’s fair share of beautiful games this month, just read further below to see a whole bunch of them. But nothing quite compares to this one. The BAFTA award winning Lumino City comes to iOS from State of Play, and it’s amazing.
Lumino city is a very well done point and click / puzzle game. But what sets it apart is the lush and finely crafted art work. The entire game is hand made using and filmed with a camera, not rendered. Real world stuff — remember that? Take a look here to see a behind the scenes video on how the whole thing was made.
This is a beautiful, fun, engaging, and very thoughtful game. Throw into that mix that it’s made with a beautiful real-world set, and it’s a must play experience. Also check out it’s little sibling, Lume also by State of Play.

Secret Agent — Outsmarted Again! Agent A, a point and click puzzler is out now.
Playing as spy Agent A on the trail of Ruby La Rouge, you’ve tracked her to a secret lair. In this gorgeously illustrated adventure, you progress through the lair, solve puzzles, find hidden objects, and explore for secrets. It’s all done with a well thought out touch exploration system.
I really enjoyed the first chapter of Agent A, out now for iOS from Yak & Co. While it’s a little short, and maybe a little on the easy side, the combination of voice overs, fun puzzles, and great art really pulled me in.
