The lights are on
Android and iOS owners have their games cut out for them this week, from everything to a Tolkien-inspired mobile MMO to a couple of stick games that lean towards the violent side of things. Check out this week’s releases here.The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle-EarthDeveloper: KabamPlatforms: iOS, AndroidPrice: Free-To-PlayFighting against a goblin army is no small task, so this game tasks you with creating your own faction and building a city to fight them. You’ll choose between and Elf or Dwarf faction and ally with the race you don’t choose. Heroes like Legolas and Thorin the Dawrf will come to your aid in the fight, making this an exciting MMO for being a mobile game.Angry Birds Star WarsDeveloper: RovioPlatforms: iOS, AndroidPrice: FreeWhat's Angry Birds? Well basically....Just kidding, if you haven't been living under a rock for the last few years, you already know. What's Star Wars though? Well....You probably know that, too. These two just got combined in Angry Birds Star Wars. Everyone wants to see pigs wearing Darth Vader masks and birds sporting lightsabers, and everyone's wishes just got granted. Enjoy.
Anger of Stick 2Developer: Junghyun ParkPlatforms: iOS, AndroidPrice: FreeAnger of Stick 2 has been popular on iOS for some time, so it’s no surprise it’s been ported to Android. You control a stick figure as it beats up other stick figures in a side-scrolling platformer. Eventually, you’ll earn new guns that can be upgraded. If all of this doesn’t grab you, there are survival and Doodle Runner modes too.Rocket FlyDeveloper: Smarcle, Inc.Platforms: iOSPrice: $0.99Outer space is the ultimate goal of Rocket Fly, but customizing your own rocket to get there is the fun part. You’ll collect coins, power-ups, and smash into other rockets in your path, all the while upgrading your rocket to make the game easier and more fun. The game’s graphics charming, too, as far as mobile games go.Lost WheelDeveloper: Ivan RodicPlatforms: iOSPrice: $0.99Halloween is over, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy the creepy aesthetic of the holiday in this addictive game. You’ll be avoiding ghosts and jack-o-lanterns, among other obstacles, on your way through each level. Collecting coins and earning achievements elongate the experience, making the dollar price tag well worth the purchase.

I always download the free stuff!
Everyone should download Sector Strike by Clapfoot games! It's a fantastic side scrolling ship shooter. Well done and fun to play.
Angry Birds Star Wars is a really fun game. I hate the original, so it could just be the Star Wars theme...
I'll have to check these out.
This week I was excited to discover Shove Pro. You should check that one out.
No idea how I missed the release of Angry Birds: Star Wars...
Might want to mention that Angry Birds SW is only free on Android-you pay $1 on iOS (and are only bombarded by around 25% as many irritating ads).
anger of the stick looks cool
