Guns of Boom

A super slick super shooty super shooter. Honestly, this is one of the best multiplayer FPS games to have hit the App Store in recent memory. It's super addictive. I do have some bad news for you though, Pocket Gamer editor Glen Fox is the best at it. Like seriously, no one can beat him.

No Stick Shooter

A crazed turret shooter that offers one of the most frantic blasting experiences this side of other frantic blasting experiences. It starts off slow, but once it kicks into gear you're going to have to have super fast fingers to get anywhere.

Old Man's Journey

This one's a slow paced puzzler that's all about an old man. He's wandering around, remembering parts of his life, and it's up to you to move the world around so he can get where he wants to go. Beautiful and slow paced, this is one for a wet afternoon.

In a dystopian future, are you going to rat on the people who live in your building? That's the premise of this Steam port. It's telling and smart, and there's an awful lot going on. There are moral choices to make, and the whole game is painted in shades of confusing grey.

Chroma Squad

If Beholder is all grey, Chroma Squad is all primary colours. It's an RPG that riffs on the idea of the Power Rangers, but with a cheeky grin on its face. It's retro, it's funny, and it's got a solid role playing heart that's likely to suck you in and spit you out. In the nicest way.
