Welcome to another week of new iOS games! This week’s most notable release is Street Fighter IV Champion Edition, especially after being delayed from its planned release last week. Well, it finally arrived, and we liked it a lot in our review. Bottom line: If you liked the old Street Fighter IV games on mobile, you’ll like this too. If you’re expecting a brand new experience that harnesses the power of the latest devices this isn’t exactly it. It’s fun as heck, though. There’s also the musical puzzler Resynth, the latest edition of Minecraft: Story Mode, and the surprisingly awesome 4x strategy game A Planet of Mine which felt like it just came out of nowhere. So check out the full list of games below and tell us which games you’re grabbing this week!
A Planet of Mine
A Planet of Mine is an engaging game combining exploration, mining, and strategy. Fully adapted for mobile devices, each game is unique thanks to an innovative “stellar system generator" that distributes resources, recruitable species, spawnable biomes, and buildable planets until a complete playground is yours to command.
Diverse species offer different advantages for planet development, challenge completion, and constructing civilizations in the game’s “Build" mode*.
Some systems feature AI-controlled, faction-building opponents. Will you trade with these factions or fight them for control of the entire system? The choice is yours.
