Had enough Candy Crush and looking for something new to play on your iPhone? We rounded up some favorites worth a download this week. Have fun!
Looney Tunes Dash!
For those who loved Space Jam in the 90s, or who grew up watching the original Looney Tunes, or even for children whose parents seem oddly attached to cartoon animals, Looney Tunes Dash! is a brilliant way to relive the very best parts of childhood.
The goal of Dash is to run through levels playing as your favorite characters, completing missions, and unlocking even more of your favorite cartoon memories. It’s a charming and well-designed game that works on levels beyond simple nostalgia.
Looney Tunes Dash! is free in the App Store.
With all the charm of something called Poo Flingers, you wouldn’t expect a game that’s so much fun to play. Train an army of poo-flinging monkeys and attack enemy fleets with feces. Hit your foes with poo to knock them off pegs in the jungle to defeat them. Choose from a variety of weapons and powerups in order to strengthen your monkeys.
Think Plants vs. Zombies but with monkeys in trees and, well, poo.
Poo Flingers is $1.99 in the App Store.
A lot like the much-loved game Simon, Squares is based on players’ ability to react and detect which square is different on a screen of nearly-identical squares. The goal is simple: tap the different square. However, the display can be customized with different colors as the challenge of hitting the right square increases. This heavily addicting game can be played more or less on an infinite loop.
Squares is free in the App Store.
Brothers in Arms 3: Sons of War
For those who still miss the original Call of Duty and the old Medal of Honor series, Brothers in Arms 3 is a fine fill-in. A WW2 shooter in which players cycle between an arsenal of classic weapons as you shoot at Nazis and duck for cover, Brothers in Arms lets you take your platoon into enemy territory and call in airstrikes or mortar fire so you can complete your mission.
Brothers in Arms 3: Sons of War is free in the App Store.
Perhaps one day we will be able to slip through a wormhole, but until then we can sit on the subway and play TimeCube on our iPhones. You don’t control your character, but you control the time around it. Learning how to manipulate gameplay time will allow you to navigate obstacles and opponents. Gamplay is not complex, but the idea is entertaining enough on its own to keep you playing.
TimeCube is free in the App Store.
