It’s midnight somewhere in the US, which means it’s time for a whole batch of new iOS games to hit the App Store. From my perspective, you might as well just rename today “Bean Dreams Launch Day" and make it an unofficial holiday so everyone can have the day off and play through Kumobius’s latest. Nostalgia buffs will have their hands full with both Shadowrun: Dragonfall and Tomb Raider II. And of course, the highly-anticipated Game of Thrones game from Telltale is now out on mobile after launching on other platforms earlier this week. Check out the full list below and let us know what you’ve got your eye on.
Encounter weird enemies and obstacles in the dense tropical forest with towering cliffs. What, pink elephants you say?! The crocodile infested swamp will stop you. You have but one job, to clear a cushy path for Barty and to make sure that he doesn’t go hungry! Bananas are his favorite food, especially the bouncy ones, and running makes him hungry. Remember, the forest monkeys are your friends! Well… at least most of them.
And don’t forget all the glittering treasures on the island!
Based on the short film “The Adventures of Barty and the Pirate" Barty Run is a comedy based, fun focused, side scrolling endless run game! Suitable to play during your commute and also as a brain-training challenge if need be!
