Out Now: ‘Monsters Ate My Metropolis’, ‘Barmark’, ‘Avoid ‘, ‘RollerCoaster Tycoon 3’, ‘March of Empires’, ‘Sentinel Command’, ‘Sputnik Eyes’ and More

TouchArcade Rating:

Welcome to another full week of new iOS game releases. The party got started early today with a surprise iOS port of RollerCoaster Tycoon 3, which unlike its previously released free to play sibling is a completely paid game with no IAP. So hopefully plenty of people have been having fun with that throughout the day. Also on tap this week is the strange adventure/zen experience Barmark, which also launched a tad early today and has me very intrigued. Finally, Noodlecake’s Avoid will challenge you to not get sawed to pieces, but sadly it won’t try to sell you pizza. Check out the full list below and enjoy!

 


An Endless Runner And A Word Game Had A Baby…

endlessrunnerwordgame

iTunes Description

Make words (3 letters or more) to create platforms so the runner guy can get to the other side! Make the words fast enough or he’ll fall to his doom!

Some Quick Playing Tips

– If you don’t like the letters, use the Swap Tiles button at the top of the screen to get new ones.
– Once you have created enough platforms for the runner to get to the other side, you can keep making words to bump up your score.
– When the runner lands on the last platform you’ll be warned. Make a word fast or use one of your swap tokens to get new letters *and* two extra platforms to give you some breathing room.
– The runner gets faster at level 5 and again at level 10. Because, challenge.

Circlestances

iTunes Description

Two circles fly across the screen. If they overlap, simply tap. The larger the overlap, the more points you get.
Every time you tap, the circles will gain more speed and move into random directions. But don’t touch the screen without the circles overlapping each other – game over!

To achieve an impressive high score, you need good reactions, the right strategy (use an opportunity to score or wait for a bigger overlap to score even higher) and a little bit of luck since you can’t influence in which direction the circles are moving with each tap…

iTunes Description

Your duty is to make sure that the brave hamster does not revert to his idling ways by tapping him or his wheel encouraging him to generate energy and delve ever deeper into unexplored reaches of the universe.
Spend generated energy for special items and clothing appropriate for a heroic space voyager this hamster is (after all, you don’t want the first space hamster traveling dressed in some old rags, do you?). While the amount of energy the hamster can generate by running is truly astounding, you can add to it by spending a part of the energy yield on alternate sources of energy which will keep the energy flowing even when the hamster is resting. If you want to generate even more, the hamster will always have some rewarding tasks to do. Fulfill them and you shall see the energy levels skyrocketing.

Monsters Ate My Metropolis

iTunes Description

From the people who brought you Robot Unicorn Attack 2 and Giant Boulder of Death — the monsters are back, and they’re dealing out destruction! Pick your favorite kaiju, assemble a deck of special cards and time your attacks to destroy the city. Battle rival players from around the world to decide who’s king of the monsters. Unlockable monsters, rare prizes, leaderboards, tournaments and more make this the card game to topple them all!

Each side is dealt three cards (from their deck of 12) and takes turns attacking until just one is left standing. Damage is based on card power, element (blue, red, green, yellow), and your timing on the boost minigame. Each attack builds your monster’s MegaZone meter; when it’s full you can forego the cards and unleash a mega-powered attack that’ll wipe the smile right off that city’s face.
