First off, Netmarble’s Marvel beat ’em up Marvel Future Fight is out worldwide with the Avengers: Age of Ultron movie hitting theaters tomorrow. Speaking of “out of soft-launch" games, Halfbricks Bears vs. Art should be out worldwide now too, after more than a year in soft-launch. Finally, it’s a smorgasbord for RPG lovers as Ys Chronicles 1, Trulon, Destiny Emerald and a few more have arrived on iOS. As always let us know what games have your interest this week.
A Hare in my Yard
Play as Farmer Dude and protect your crops against your arch nemesis, Rabbit Man. He’ll dig up your yard and try to steal your produce for himself! Be careful though as he’s quick and generally pretty clever (for the most part), but when that fails him Rabbit Man has an assortment of allies he can call upon to help get the job done. Fear not though as Farmer Dude has his own tricks up his sleeve in terms of allies and items he can buy at the shop. Light RPG elements help you upgrade your skills to keep up with the ever so sly Rabbit Man.

Do you remember those old handheld electronic games? Simple rules, fun to play, yet challenging. No? Nothing comes to your mind? Well, don’t bother anymore, cause Sheep Frenzy! is so much more!
Rules are simple. You use just two “buttons" to move the bar and the bar is what prevents sheep from falling into the abyss. They will just bounce right off the bar to the other side. They may seem a little suicidal, but at least you earn points for rescuing them, right?
The more points you earn, the more valuable sheep you unlock. But beware of their special abilities – the most valuable sheep are really hard to rescue.
