Out Now: Adventures of Pip
Adventures of Pip is a top-tier platforming game that’s all about evolving from a single pixel to a multi-pixel hero, and back again.
Adventures of Pip revitalizes the classic side-scrolling action platform genre. Pip — the ultimate digital underdog – is a lowly single pixel in a 32-bit world who proves that you can’t judge a hero by the fidelity of his shaders. During the game, Pip gains the ability to evolve and grow by absorbing pixels from his fallen foes. Those same pixels can then be used to blast through environment puzzles and enemies, devolving Pip back to a single pixel. Players will explore five stylized worlds and experience up to 10 hours of epic adventure saving Pip’s village from the evil Queen DeRezzia.

Out Now: Tales From Deep Space from Amazon Game Studios
Amazon has released another game from their internal game studios, Tales From Deep Space. This puzzle platformer / adventure has a lot of personality and looks fantastic. Worth the price, hell yes. But as we know, $6.99 can be a hard sell these days.

Adventures of Poco Eco: Lost Sounds Review
If you like your games to sport gorgeous audio and visuals, you’ll probably want to take a gander at Adventures of Poco Eco: Lost Sounds, which Pocket Gamer scored an impressive 9 out of 10 in their review.
Levels mainly play out like little puzzles. There are buttons to push that rearrange the scenery, and amps to find that unlock even more buttons.
It’s all delightfully sedate, and there’s a chilled out vibe that permeates everything. Some might find the hand-holding a little too tight, but in a way that’s the whole point: you’re here to see and do rather than fathom.

The Sleeping Prince: Royal Edition - Premium version of ex-Free To Play game released
The Sleeping Prince was originally released late last year as free to play and showed lots of promise. But players really didn’t like how free to play was implemented in the game and the developer agreed. They pulled the game, removed the energy mechanic and all in-app purchases and made the game what it was all along at it’s heart — a unique premium platformer. The new update is out now for $1.99.

Endless Skier Alto's Adventure Released
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.
