(SNAPP 5 [or “5NAPP” because it looks cool] is not a “best of” compilation, but more of a list of just five great games that have some kind of connection between them.)
Well, we made it again. IT’S FRIDAY GLITCHES!! The work week is about over and the weekend is almost upon us. Time to get the Jergens and Kleenex and play some games!!
We ended up with another fairly decent release week for games on the App Store. It’s actually been pretty surprising. Usually January is pretty slow for new games. I’m definitely not complaining!!
Anyway, with all the games that have released this week, here’s 5 games that shouldn’t be missed…..
Pixel Drifters Nitro is an arcade-y racing/drifting game with some excellent pixel art. There are 120+ vehicles to unlock (INCLUDING A SNAPPZILLA VEHICLE!!), upgrades, skins, avatars, and a big one, multiplayer. I’m actually working on a review for this game, but I’ll tell you this, it’s awesome and definitely worth checking out.
JYDGE is a top-down shooter set in the Neon Chrome world. The game is based on building up your own cybernetic “JYDGE”. So, it’s more about grinding and building up your gun and skills than anything. It’s actually really fun. If you’re a fan of 10tons games, then you’ll dig this one. It’s a cross between Crimsonland and Neon Chrome. Oh, and it’s 50% off right now!
Skullgirls is a 2D fighting RPG with a pretty big following and even bigger boobies! This is actually a re-release to the Skullgirls game that was published by Line not too long ago. This version is the better of the two in my opinion. It feels more polished and streamlined. There’s also some extras added. Skullgirls is probably one of my favorite fighters on iOS right now. Definitely worth checking out.
Hero’s 2nd Memory F is basically a free version of the game, Hero’s 2nd Memory that released at the beginning of this month, but it’s still worthy of this list. Especially if you didn’t get the paid version. H2MF is a weird SHMUP/Bullet Hell/RPG. You play as a hero that’s trying to find the devil. I’m going to tell you now that that’s all I really know about the story. The translation is pretty rough, but doesn’t hinder the gameplay in any way. There’s some mild grinding to upgrade at times, but not too bad. It’s definitely an interesting game.
It’s Full of Sparks is a fun little platformer where you get to experience the life of a firecracker. To be honest, it feels more like a puzzle game to me at times, but that’s not a bad thing. There are over 80 levels along with a pretty cute story. There’s also the whole 3-star thing for all you speedrunners out there. Like in most games, I try and get 3 stars in the first couple levels, then I’m happy with 1 or 2 stars. By the time I get to the tougher stuff in these games, I could care less about stars and just want to pass the level. They can get pretty tough in this game too.
Alright. That’s your SNAPP 5 of the week! You can check out the full SNAPP Roundup here. Have a great weekend family!! Keep on swiping…….
