Wow, this might go down as the most epic release week in quite some time. Between the highly-anticipated Oceanhorn finally being upon us, exciting sequels to two huge iOS classics in Epoch 2 and Tilt to Live 2, possibly the best digital adaptation of a gamebook that I’ve ever seen in Lone Wolf, a port of a cool looking stealth puzzler in Stealth Inc, and… well, I could go on and on. Let’s just say our collective wallets and free time are going to be under extreme duress after this week. And, something tells me this is just the beginning as the holiday rush is kicking into gear. Anyway, we captured lots of hands-on video of many of the games which you can see embedded below, as well as the normal forum and App Store links, so use those tools to your advantage as you go on a reckless spending spree with the rest of us.
Send these kamikaze critters sky high to obliterate huge objects in this challenging physics-based puzzler.
