The lights are on
Even though we're in a month where new AAA titles are scarce, we can take solace in knowing that there will be always something new to play on our mobile devices. This week we take a look at some re-releases, sequels, and brand new titles.
Game of Thrones AscentDeveloper: KongregatePlatforms: Android,
iOSPrice: Free (with in-app purchases)
While this game has been available to play on your PC and
iPad for some time already, it has recently come to iPhone and Android devices
as well. Now almost anyone can start a noble house in Westeros on the go.
Game of Thrones Ascent offers a compelling story that even
George R. R. Martin himself believes to be authentic to the series. Couple that
with thousands of quests and adventures and you have an interesting, and best
of all free, RPG experience.
Battle Fleet 2Developer: Capital j MediaPlatforms: Android, iOSPrice: $4.99
Battle Fleet 2 drops you off in the middle of the Pacific theater
of World War II. In the style of Worms,
you must eliminate all opposing forces using various weapons. The game also has
online multiplayer for those looking for a greater challenge.
Secret Files: TunguskaDeveloper: Deep SilverPlatforms: iOSPrice: $4.99
In the July gaming drought, we may be scraping the barrel. This
is another game that's been out for a while (eight years old, in fact) but it's
finally landed on mobile devices, so we figured it would be worth a mention.
Secret Files: Tunguska is a point-and-click adventure that has you unravel a
mystery a century in the making.
Zombie CommandoDeveloper: BulkypixPlatforms: iOSPrice: $1.99 (for a limited time)
This isometric shooter has you taking down hordes of zombies
and rescuing survivors. It may sound like everything we've seen before, but the
fifteen classes and assortment of upgrades and weapons may interest even the
most jaded anti-zombie game crowd.
This week was pretty light on new interesting releases, but
it's to be expected given the times. What are you playing on your phone and tablet?
