Out Now: ‘Lara Croft GO’, ‘Ski Safari 2’, ‘Breakneck’, ‘Sage Solitaire’, ‘Swipey Rogue’, ‘Calvino Noir’, ‘Sketch Breaker’, ‘Gasoliq’ and More

TouchArcade Rating:

After such an epic week of new games last week, it’s nice to see that things are continuing to roll strong this week. The original Ski Safari is one of my all-time favorite games, so I was excited to hear the announcement of a sequel and even more excited that the release was so soon after that announcement. Ski Safari 2 is out tonight, and it looks killer. Also, Lara Croft GO looks to do to the Tomb Raider franchise what Hitman GO did with Hitman, which I’m very stoked about. PikPok’s fancy-looking futuristic racer Breakneck is out of soft-launch, Zach Gage’s thoughtful Sage Solitaire is out, along with the dungeon-crawling puzzler Swipey Rogue, the stylish adventure Calvino Noir… just so many great releases. We are truly blessed as mobile gamers, so check out the list below and let us know what you’re picking up!

Update: Late arrival The Walking Dead: Road to Survival is out of soft-launch and has been added to the list below!

Beat da Beat

iTunes Description

Rescue the woman you love from the claws of a green-faced villain, fighting your way through various dangers; give some beans to his henchmen – all this accompanied by breathtaking hits of the coolest music performers!
Beat Da Beat is a unique alloy of classical bullet-hell genre with the dynamics of rhythm games. All that goes on on the screen, such as moving, acting and shooting, is based on music compositions. Can you imagine anything cooler than dodging the hurricane of enemy bullets – and doing so to the powerful rhythms of dubstep? Smashing extraterrestrial miscreants into atoms while dancing funnily? What? Smacking ‘em good in a close-in slugfest? No problem, dude!

Calvino Noir

iTunes Description

The film noir stealth game. Calvino Noir is the exploratory, sneaking adventure through the 1930s European criminal underworld. Architecture meets Noir as you become unwillingly entangled in a revolutionist plot. We use Apple’s Metal graphics technology to recreate the style of film noir, with it’s beautiful high contrast aesthetic to build a world that feels real enough to host the game’s dangerous setting.

Acts 2 and 3 are available as in-app purchases.

Inspired by the futuristic dystopian visions of Deus Ex and Blade Runner. Play as a disparate group of last-chancers as they fight for the future of a city sliding slowly into the gutter. Some are broken souls, some are merely damaged – all are fighting to forge a future in an ugly world ruled by those whose hearts are cruel and dark.
