Well Friday has rolled around again, like some sort of inevitable ball of week-ending glee. And here in AppSpy land that can only mean one thing - it’s time to tell you, our avid and loyal readership - what the best games of the week are.
There’ve been some gems this week, too. And some not so gems. That doesn’t make sense, but you get the point that I’m trying to make.
But hey, it’s the first week of January, so let’s give the App Store a break, yeah? And let’s write a list of five games that have come out in the last seven days that you might want to smush your face into.
Sure, it’s just a tower defence game, but it’s a tower defence game lathered up in the sort of soapy polish that’d make a nun blush.
Build some towers, train up your heroes, and follow a story about encroaching bands of monsters that want to steal all of your stuff. This is a TD game done with aplomb, and you can’t really fault it for that.
An intriguing mix of a roguelike, an auto-runner, and a one-touch arcade experience, there are some great ideas in this one that you’re really going to want to try out,
Dash through an immune system destroying bugs and diseases, and using your special healing powers to clear a path for yourself.
Milkmaid of the Milky Way
A gorgeous retro-looking point and click adventure that’s got a lot of lovely cows in it. And what’s not to like about lovely cows?
Of course there’s spaceships and mysteries and strange goings on afoot as well. And you’re going to have a lovely old time figuring them all out.
Five Nights At Freddy’s: Sister Location
Another entry into the wildly popular pants-soiling horror game, this time set in a different restaurant to the one we’ve all screamed at in the past.
There are new characters, new locations, and as you might expect new moments that’ll make you jump out of your skin. If you’ve got any skin left.
Please, Don’t Touch Anything 3D
The original game was a ridiculous riot of fun that saw you blowing up the world accidentally in lovely pixel art. This time around you’re doing the same, but in lovely 3D.
It’s a puzzle game, a test of attrition, and there’s a very good chance that more than once you’re going to explode the universe with your curiosity. Just like in real life.
