Playing Impossible Road is not unlike playing an endless, randomized version of Rainbow Road in a Mario Kart game. But at 200cc, and with no brakes. It’s really fun, but it really is impossible. The madness can now be yours for $1, down from $2.
Gamezebo has posted their usual roundup of the best-looking games to launch on the App Store for the week. This week 12 games make the cut, including titles like Her Story, Dragon Quest VI, Sonic Runners, and more. Check out the full article to see what interests you.
Her Story is a unique game about navigating a police database and watching a witness’s testimony. 148Apps liked it quite a bit, giving it 4 out of 5 stars. From the review:
Hannah’s husband has gone missing and it is up to you to uncover the truth by sifting through the remnants of “her story.” The gameplay is super simple: just enter a word into the search bar and up to five videos will be displayed. I found it useful to take notes of words to search during the videos, then I ended up with 6 pages of notes that if read back look like the scrawlings of a madman. Each video has a time stamp so if you feel particularly enterprising you can figure out the order of every clip. There’s also an amusing minigame hidden in the Trash folder that harkens back to old Windows freeware like Mine Sweeper.

Classic RPG Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition is currently on sale for $4.99 USD, down from $9.99 USD. It should go brilliantly with your copy of Baldur’s Gate II: Enhanced Edition, which is also on sale.
Baldur’s Gate II: Enhanced Edition is an epic RPG that deserves as much attention as it can muster. Its current sale price of $4.99 USD (down from $9.99 USD) should help it garner a bit of that deserved admiration.
If you’re looking to beef up your summer reading library, look no further than Tin Man Games’ epic Gamebook Adventure series sale. These game / story hybrids, typically $5.99 USD each, are going for $0.99 each. That includes Lords of Nurroth, which was released just last month.
There’s been a backlash against the Confederate flag following the tragic shooting in South Carolina, and Apple has moved to take down apps and games that feature a Confederate flag in any context.
As of the writing of this story, games like Ultimate General: Gettysburg and all the Hunted Cow Civil War games are nowhere to be found. Apple is famous for reaching for the axe rather than the scalpel when it comes to political issues (like rejecting Hunted Cow’s Tank Battle 1942 for depicting Germans and Russians as enemies), so this move doesn’t come as a great surprise.
In Piloteer, a whimsical and serenely challenging physics-based game about learning to fly, a renowned inventor is determined to overcome the stigma associated with flying a jetpack and convince the world that jetpacks should be revered by all.
Blending elements of both physics and trick-based games, players will need to maneuver their state-of-the-art jetpack through the skies while completing a myriad of increasingly difficult missions to change public perceptions.
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.
