App Store Update: November 19
Every day hundreds of new apps make their debut on the App Store, and hundreds more are updated or reduced in price. We have sifted through the noise and highlighted those select few that might be worth your attention.
Skip-Bo – ($1.99)
The classic family card game makes it App Store debut to kick off our new week of app analysis.
Dungeon Heroes – ($0.99)
Next up is Dungeon Heroes, an indie-developed, deceptively addictive dungeon crawler featuring eight different playable characters. Not bad for a buck.
Drawn: Trail of Shadows Collector’s Edition HD (Full) – ($6.99)
It’s still a little confusing to me how you can have a Collector’s Edition for a digital-only game, but, semantics aside, this new edition of last month’s new Drawn series sequel is worth a look for iPad owners.
Kingdom Rush HD – ($0.99)
One of our all-time favorite tower defenders is on sale for under a dollar – check out the 9 out of 10 review.
Dragon Island Blue – (Free)
This Pokemon-alike game design should scratch the itch for any master monster catchers out there.
Royal Envoy HD (Premium) – (Free)
A medieval kingdom built on a group of islands needs your help to be built up into a prosperous nation. Very underrated game here, people, so definitely check it out for free.
EPOCH. – ($0.99)
Post-apocalyptic robot shooting action awaits you for just 99 cents today, courtesy of EPOCH. Give its trailer a glance:
Pitfall! – (Free)
Released just a couple of months ago, Pitfall! for iOS re-imagined the 30-year-old platformer as a Temple Run-alike. You might have skipped out on it when it debuted, but now it’s free to download.
Cut the Rope HD – ($1.99)
The holiday dedicated to stuffing your face with turkey is approaching fast, so why not prepare yourself for a feeding frenzy by feeding candy to a cute little monster?
NBA Jam – ($0.99)
“He’s on fire!” “Ugly shot!” “Boom-shaka-laka!” Ah, the memories. Relive the glory days of ‘90s arcade basketball with this modern version of NBA Jam, on sale for just 99 cents right now.
Asphalt 7: Heat – (Free)
A final freebie for today, Gameloft’s racer is not a bad buy at all when you don’t have to buy it at all.
Jumping Finn Turbo – ($0.99)
It’s Adventure Time! Fans of the cartoon can jump into the role of Jake’s big foot and boot Finn into the sky for cheap today, then stay tuned – I’ve got an Adventure Time 3DS review heading your way very, very soon.
That’s all for today! And hey, if you haven’t already, subscribe to the App Store Update via email. For convenience!
