Here’s a great deal: Rayman Jungle Run, our Game of the Year 2012, is currently free to download. It’s an amazing, gorgeous, auto-running platformer that’s full of responsive gameplay that makes you want to keep on playing well past when common sense would tell you to stop. Be sure to grab it up before the mean old price comes back.
Fans of the highly adults-only comedy show It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia might be surprised to hear who’s been announced to direct the upcoming Minecraft movie. It’s Rob McElhenney, known better by fans of the show as Mac. From Touch Arcade:
He has plenty of production and writing experience from the long-running FX comedy, of course, but he has yet to direct a movie for himself. He’s working on a movie called Figment for Legendary Pictures, but it’s possible that’s on hiatus, or this takes precendence, or he’s working on this next. Regardless, this seems promising since It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia is such a good show.

If you like your platformers to have that good old retro feel, you’ll want to check out Cally’s Caves 3. That’s what Pocket Gamer says in their 8 out of 10 review:
Aside from a few little niggles, this is a solid and immensely entertaining platforming blast. The action is condensed nicely, and there’s rarely a moment when you won’t be at least within the vicinity of the edge of your seat.
Cally’s Caves 3 takes the fight to some of the very best platformers available on the App Store, and while it might not quite land a killing blow to earn its place among that upper echelon, it gets damn close.

Music trivia fans should go ahead and download Song Pop 2, a game that plays a clip of a song and has you try to identify it faster than your opponent. From 148Apps’s 4 out of 5 star review:
That principle is oh so addictive though, much like before. It’s almost inescapable at times, easily sapping up your free time. That’s even more so if you have an Apple Watch, given you can receive notifications through that and never quite step away from the addiction.
As dark as that might sound though, that’s because SongPop 2 is a lot of fun. It’s pitched well so you can achieve a lot in a short space of time, and who can resist testing their friends’ music knowledge?
With a stream of releases, fans of Games Workshop’s tabletop games have had an embarrassment of riches on the App Store in recent years. The latest strategy sci-fi game is pretty good, although it’s a bit of a slog, says Gamezebo in their 3.5 out of 5 star review:
Once Warhammer 40,000: Deathwatch gets rolling, it’s a great mobile strategy game that genre fans will undoubtedly enjoy. Unfortunately a number of backend issues really hold the experience back from being a must buy for strategy gamers. Let’s keep our fingers crossed for some patches.
