(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 everyone. You know I’ve gotta say it or I just won’t feel right. So, here it goes. IT’S FRIDAY GLITCHES!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes, the work week is over and it’s time to drip hot wax on our nipples and play some games!!
We had another good release week on the App Store. Congrats to the teams that got a feature this week! I love when I see SNAPP Family on the front page in the “New Games We Love” section. It makes me proud. So, an extra special congrats to Unept, The Frosty Pops Corp, and Valorian Games for their games getting the nod from Apple.
So, now it’s our turn…..
Remember. The SNAPP 5 isn’t really the best games of the week. So, don’t feel bad if your game didn’t make it. It’s honestly impossible for me to get through EVERY game that releases before Friday. So, instead of doing a “Best Of”, I just pick 5 games that I’m really digging.
So, here’s the SNAPP 5 of the week!!
Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition
by Square Enix
I had to pick this game because I haven’t played the console version of Final Fantasy XV yet. So, this was the easiest way for me to play it rightnow. I’ve always been a big Final Fantasy fan and FFXV:PE doesn’t disappoint. I would say if you have a choice, then of course, play the console version. But if you don’t own a console, Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition does the trick.
by The Frosty Pop Corps Inc.
I guess the easiest way to explain Ninja Attack! is to say that it’s a shooting gallery style game with shurikens? Anyway, it’s got a really cool art style with 30 different skins to unlock. There’s even an AR mode for all those cool kids that like to throw shurikens at the family pet.
Bluebird of Happiness
by Daigo Sato
Diego Sato is becoming one of my favorite indie developers. I absolutely love every game he releases. He makes really good games that can be played in one sitting. Bluebird of Happiness is a Point & Click style game with some really neat puzzles. I won’t get into too much for the sake of spoiling anything. It’s definitely worth a playthrough though. Make sure to check out his other games while you’re at it.
Dig Dog: Treasure Hunter
by Wild Rooster
This one is starting to grow on me the more I play it. It’s a roguelike platformer where you play as a dog trying to find a bone in each level. The 3-button controls work well and there’s an endless more for practicing. I still wish Dig Dog had a little more to it though. But, for what it is, it’s still a fun little game.
Commando Blaze is another tough (but fun) platformer. This one is an auto-run & gunner where the object is to just make it to the end of the level in one piece. After you get past the second level, things get ridiculously tough. There’s 11 different characters to unlock, all with their own unique weapons. Commando Blaze is frustrating at times, but definitely shouldn’t be passed up.
There were of course a bunch of other great games released this week. Dandara, True Legacy, and even an X-Files game. Of course, you can check these out and the rest of this week’s new releases in the SNAPP Roundup.
Keep it stiff everyone and have a great weekend!!
