[Sponsored] Zap Zap Kindergarten Math will give your kids a pre-school math boost on mobile
We’d like to thank our sponsor for this week, Zap Zap Kindergarten Math.
It’s not always easy to tear your kids away from their tablets and make them do something edifying. Thankfully, Zap Zap Kindergarten Math relieves you of this task by turning mathematics into a fun touchscreen video game. Win win!
Aimed at children 3-6 years old, the app makes math fun by ‘gamifying’ it, turning simple mathematics problems into little challenges so that your pre-schooler can learn and play at the same time.
There are more than two dozen mini-games, split across three categories: Numbers, Shapes and Measurements, and Add and Subtract. According to the developer the difficulty of these puzzles is adaptive too, so kids of any ability can be both encouraged and challenged.

The latest in the Zombie Gunship franchise released
Who doesn’t love shooting zombies. Second only to nazis, zombies in games have that sort of guiltless fun. You are technically killing people in the game, but they aren’t real people, they are the undead (nazis included in that). Zombie Gunship Survival is the newest free to play version of the Zombie Gunship series. Seemingly years in development, it’s finally put and it’s really well done. For someone who has liked any of this franchise, they should love this version.
Experience the power of an AC-130 aircraft and annihilate zombies in this intense shooter. With a devastating apocalypse having broken out, defend humanity from the skies while building a shelter on the ground to keep out the undead.

Beholder - a creepy game about choices and consequences
Beholder is a dark game. And it can be really dark. It’s a game about surveillance, choices, and consequences. In the (possibly not so) distant future surveillance is the norm and the player is a state-appointed monitor of that information. The player is the manager of an apartment building who has been assigned by the state to monitor the residents. The choices made in the game have direct impact on the tenants of the building, if the info is reported. And that’s the main choice in the game. We done, compelling, and voyeuristic and sadistic fun.

[Sponsor] Pull off rad tricks in Stickman Skate Battle out now on mobile
We’d like to thank our sponsor for this week, Stickman Skate Battle from Djinnworks GmbH.
Think you can pull off the most rad tricks out of all of your friends? Well, why not put that to the test in Stickman Skate Battle, a multiplayer skate-off experience out right now on iOS and Android.
Stickman Skate Battle challenges you to face off against a friend in a variety of different modes. There’s high score, in which you try and perform the best tricks in a minute. The winner is, as you expect, the player with the highest score at the end. Then there’s domination mode, which takes its cues from Splatoon. Here you trick off obstacles to cover them in your colours, and win if you have the most obstacles at the end. You can steal your opponent’s obstacle, which is pretty cool, by performing a better trick on it.
Aside from the main modes, there are also a bunch of daily, weekly, and league tournaments to take part in – if you dare. These offer the highest challenge, as you’re up against players globally. You might want to train up for that by completing the tutorial, practicing your tricks in training mode, and taking on the AI in offline play. If you fancy a bit of personal flair on your character, you can choose from a variety of different skaters and boards, as well as learn a few special tricks.
It’s clear that Stickman Skate Battle has been designed with love for the sport in mind. From the hand-crafted skate parks, to the variety of skaters, and the controller support at launch. Go on, you know you want to grab it from the App Store or Google Play right now.

C.A.T.S.: Crash Arena Turbo Stars -- equal parts Battlebots and cat fight
Not that kind of cat fight. In this cartoon game the player creates an almost Rube Goldberg-esque fighting robot and battles other players creations. In a sort of jousting fashion, each player pushes to destroy the other players robot. This is an interesting departure for Zeptolab, the makers of the Cut The Rope franchise. A foray into the multiplayer world with a quirky, but fun game.

Unique puzzle adventure game perfectly suited to touch screens
I first saw Mushroom 11 running on an iPad what must have been over two years ago. It’s perfectly suited to touch screen controls and feels foreign on desktop. But the current climate means indie developers marketing strategy, as dumb as it is, is to release on PC first. Lots of reasons to do so, but inability to figure out how to market to mobile users effectively is a big part of it. With the whole marketing strategy now being bring a PC game to mobile and people will pay a bit more.
Enough about that, how about this game. It’s a really well done puzzle game where the players multitouch pushes move an amoeba like blob through a series of levels. Really well done, very unique, and fun!
