An old favorite drops its price tag while Dungeon Hunter 4 reminds us of our favorite dungeon crawlers of yesteryear. This week’s collection of mobile games contains titles with in-depth gameplay and others that are as simple as they are entertaining. 

Fruit Ninja Is Free on iOS
Price: Free
Developer: Halfbrick Studios
Platform: iOS

Fruit Ninja was an early hit on the mobile gaming scene. If you didn’t get a chance to join in on the fruit-slicing fun before, now is your shot to try the game at no cost. 

Bottle Cap Blitz
Price: $.99
Developer: Big Pixel Studios
Platform: iOS

Flinging bottle caps at ice cubes sounds like a weird premise for a game, but it provides simple and effortless entertainment. Different power-ups and the ability to chain together combos gives Bottle Cap Blitz a little depth, but it remains a fun and easy time waster.

Dungeon Hunter 4
Price: Free
Developer: Gameloft
Platform: iOS 

Reminiscent of dungeon crawlers like Diablo and Torchlight, this mobile game is an in-depth action RPG boasting an intense narrative and beautiful environments. 

Gemini Rue
Price: $3.99
Developer: Wadjet Eye Games LLC
Platform: iOS

Gemini Rue takes place in the future and is a sci-fi adventure with a mystery twist. The game tells the story of Azriel Odin, a former assassin who finds himself on the planet Barracus. Another character, Delta-Six, awakes on the other side of the galaxy with memory loss. His only mission is to escape before everything is completely forgotten. In this epic storyline, the two become important characters in this futuristic noir adventure. 

Heavy Sword
Price: $.99
Developer: Ashley Jackson
Platform: iOS 

Heavy Sword looks a lot like Super Mario Bros. in level design, but it’s a platformer that introduces the players to Pike. He battles villains like robot knights, orcs, wizards, and more to rescue Princess Lucinda.
