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.

I’m a sucker for physics puzzlers — and Monkeyrama feeds that hunger
I am a sucker for physics puzzlers. Monkeyrama makes no sense, but it doesn’t really need to, it’s a physics puzzler where stuff gets knocked over and blown up.
In this game monkeys with different abilities are thrown into stacks of blocks in the attempt to knock a certain number of them over. There are a few issues with this game, but it’s still a bunch of fun and a good, quick diversion.

Out Now: Bridge Constructor Stunts from Headup Games
Stuntman and engineer in one? No problem with Bridge Constructor Stunts!
Build imposing ramps and loops to reach your goal in the diverse stages. But building structures alone isn’t enough this time: you sit behind the wheel of the vehicles yourself and have to maneuver them skillfully to the goal. Collect stars, complete daredevil jumps, flips and spectacular stunts, leaving behind a trail of destruction across the entire level to beat the high score. But you can only do all that with perfectly constructed bridges and ramps.

Out Now: Angry Birds 2

Agar.io Review: Free and Highly Recommended
From what I hear, Agar.io is a game all the kids are crazy about, even though (or because) you can name yourself any word you want, regardless of its R-rated-ness. From Touch Arcade’s 4.5 out of 5 star review:
Agar.io is described as an “MMO,” but it’s a lot more arcade-like in nature. You’ll start off as a single, solitary cell — yep, as in, a microscopic organism. Your objective is to simply absorb smaller cells, grow in size, and live as long as you possibly can. If you happen to get absorbed, it’s game over, and you’ll start over from the beginning. I’m leaving out the major gimmick of course, in that most of those other cells that you are eating and being eaten by are actually other players. Hence, the “massively multiplayer” part. As you’d expect, things can get extremely hectic and competitive being surrounded by a constant sea of players.
