It may feature cutesy graphics and a lovable hero, but a gory mess is what youll get if you dont watch where youre going.
We know what youre thinking. Wind Waker, right? Oceanhorn may borrow heavily from the Zelda game but it tells its own unique story about a boy looking for his lost father. This nautical adventure game features dungeons, treasures to find, and puzzles to solve. Yes, its like Wind Waker, but with an engaging story, gorgeous visuals, and a wonderful soundtrack composed by Nobuo Uematsu, whats not to love?
Epoch 2 ($5.99)
Epoch 2 takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where one robot is humanitys last hope for survival. Waves of incoming enemies challenge you during each level, and quick touch controls tell your robot when to shoot them down or hide for cover. Boss battles make this shooter all the more exciting and plenty of weapons and armor lets you customize your robot to your liking. Remember--if you dont win, humanity loses.
Don't Shoot Yourself ($0.99)
When a games title tells you what to do, you better listen. Dont Shoot Yourselfs puzzle-like levels feature a little ship that cant stop shooting. The challenge is to survive each one, dodging your own shots that bounce off the walls until the timer runs out. Invisible walls, devious portals, and narrow corridors make not shooting yourself all the more difficult.
Agent P DoofenDASH (Free)
Agent P DoofenDASH features all the antics youd expect from an episode of Phineas and Ferb but in a quirky and quite charming endless runner. Playing as Agent P, you need to chase down Dr. Doofenshmirtz and avoid all the traps and obstacles he throws your way. Have what it takes to catch him? Probably not since this is an endless runner, after all--but trying is half the fun!
Beetle Breaker (Free)
If you've had your fill of flinging birds around, why not try bugs next? In each level you need to aim a team of beetles at a spinning target and blow it up as much as possible. The trick is knowing how to use their special abilities to the fullest. With plenty of challenging levels, upgrades, and unique bugs to use, Beetle Breaker is quite a blast (no pun intended).
Chicken Boy ($1.99)
In this action arcade game, you'll need to help Chicken Boy keep poultry-loving fiends away from his feathered friends by throwing fruit at them. Waves get stronger as you clear through the games 60 levels, so youll need to aim your shots carefully to take them all out before its too late.
