While there was one lonely game in this roundup last week (which doesn’t even really make it a roundup) this week we’ve got four great games that everyone needs to try. Better yet, two of them won’t even cost you any money to try out. Additionally, we’re entering Q4 which is where all the huge releases seem to be, so strap in for what’s likely going to be even more great weeks like this.
Anomaly Defenders, $4.99 [Review] – 11bit studios has proven that it doesn’t matter what flavor of tower game they make, they’re all going to be awesome. They made a name for themselves in the tower offense world with the Anomaly series, and with the latest installment have flipped the formula around to be a more standard tower defense game. All the great graphics and production value are still there, making this one of the best looking TD games we’ve seen.
Smarter Than You, Free [Review] – It turns out 10000000 guy is capable of making awesome games that aren’t 10000000. Smarter Than You is a fascinating social mind game, orbiting around the foundation of rock paper scissors which everyone has played at least once in their life. Playing with random people is a ton of fun, but Smarter Than You truly shines when you tap your own Game Center friends list.
Rapture - World Conquest, Free [Review] – Tundra Games has opened up shop with its debut title. With a new faceplate and some veteran talent, this game studio is one to keep an eye out for. If you asked the question: how could you make the Civ experience accessible and time-appropriate for the iOS mobile platform? This game would probably be the answer. Sure there are plenty of world conquering strategy games out there, but this one has a fantastically frenetic pace that is perfect for on-the-go gaming.
WWE SuperCard - Battle Cards, Free [Review] – The App Store has been primed for a good wrestling game basically forever, as all the games that use existing wrestling IP have been… Well, not great. WWE Supercard is a fun card game that could stand on its own, but the addition of WWE wrestlers puts it over the top, as it’s really silly amounts of fun to do things like play your super-powerful John Cena card.
