(The Weekly 5NAPP is a list of five great games that released this week. You can call it a “Best Of” list, but it’s more of just five new games that shouldn’t be missed.)
Well, we made it! The work week it over and I’ve been dying to say this all damn week. IT’S FRIDAY GLITCHES!! Time to get out the honey and feather dusters and play some vidya gamez!!
All in all, we had a decent week for new games on the App Store. There was no huge AAA games that released, so it left some room for attention for smaller indies. Apple did an ok job with featuring a lot of them. I may not agree with a few of the games featured, but who am I to say anything?
Anyway, you can check out the full list of this week’s new games in the SNAPP Roundup or if you’d like a quick fix, here’s this week’s SNAPP 5!
Best Rally is an arcade-y rally racing game that can be picked up by just about anybody. The simple 2 finger controls make steering easy and the 30+ levels keep you coming back for more. With me being a gear head, I would have liked to see more vehicles and upgrades, but it’s not that kind of game. Best Rally is just a fun casual racer that should be on everyone’s phones right now.
Normally, I don’t get into clicker/idle games. If I do, it takes a lot to keep my attention. The developers did something right with this one. Void Troopers is a mashup of a shmup and a clicker. The visuals are beautiful and of course, there are a ton of upgrades. It doesn’t stray too far from the normal clicker game formula, but I don’t think that affects anything. If you’re a fan of the genre, this one is definitely worth checking out.
Dungeon X Dungeon is a side scrolling “Metroidvania” style game where you play as a treasure hunter that is preventing the resurrection of a force called the Great Evil. The controls are done well and the level design is brutal, but fun. I did a review on Dungeon X Dungeon awhile back. This is the free version that just released. Check out this version and if you like it, drop a couple bucks for the paid game.
DERE EVIL EXE is one of those platformers that make you want to throw your phone every time you play. For some reason, us as gamers love to get ourselves all worked up on games like these. Regardless, DERE EVIL EXE is a well done side scrolling horror game with a good creepypasta story and old school visuals. This is one of those games that need to be played to experience.
I did a SNAPP Review on this game already this week, but I’ve gotta give it some extra props because I’m still playing it. Wander Star is a quirky side scroller shooter with some big ambitions. The game is infinite, so I’m sure people will get tired of it after awhile, but it’s definitely worth checking out.
Alright, that’s it for this week! Like I said, you can check out the full list in this week’s SNAPP Roundup. Have a great weekend everyone and keep on swiping!!
