Badland 2 takes everything to love about Badland and turns it up to 11
Sequels can be an tough business. Similar to the way it’s hard for a band to have a hit with their second album, the second game in a franchise is usually really tough. There are so many things in play at that point — number one being the stress of the expectation others have to produce another hit. But in this case, the sequel turned out to be really amazing. Badland 2 takes everything that’s so awesome about Badland and makes it even more awesome without the game losing any of it’s super sincere originality.
The key difference in Badland 2 is the control scheme. The original was one touch — touch anywhere on the screen to flap the wings, rise up, and move forward. This version adds the ability to go left or right by touching on the left or right of the screen. This increases possibilities in the game to allow mazes that snake around rather than being a pretty much up/down affair. Other new features include different obstacles and new challenges that all fit well in the style of the game.
Badland was one of the most original and amazing games released in the history of mobile games. If you enjoyed the original’s art style and challenging gameplay, you will love Badland 2.

Sonic Dash 2: Sonic Boom Review - 4.5/5 from Gamezebo
Sonic Dash 2: Sonic Boom is a fun endless running game that’s tightly-bound. It proves, once again, that Sonic is at his best when he’s just allowed to run free with the wind in his quills. Who knew a mobile game could help redeem a console property, though?

Mr Jump Review: Like Flappy Bird, But With a Human Touch
Sick of blisteringly-hard Flappy Bird clones yet? No? Then Touch Arcade recommends you check out Mr Jump, an action game that’s tougher than an iron tortoise. Granted, the titular Mr Jump might do better at surviving if he’d take that box off his head, but it’s a free world (his game is free, too).
Mr Jump has a very specific appeal to it. I’m sure you can tell right away whether it’s your thing or not. If you enjoy frustrating action games where you have to fight tooth and nail to move past almost every obstacle, you’re going to have a blast here.

Alto’s Adventure is a very pretty endless runner / skier. Released today by Snowman ($1.99, App Store), the game is a very beautiful looking downhill Ski Safari type game. Set in a beautiful procedurally generated alpine world, tricks are done with just one touch to jump/rotate the skier while in the air to gather coins and power up from jumps.
Beautiful game well worth the two buck price tag.
