Your busy week of sitting at home, surfing the web, and playing mobile games is over. The weekend is here, which means plenty of time for sitting at home, surfing the web, and playing mobile games. Lockdown sure is a blast.
This week we’ve got the usual handful of new games to tell you about, along with the games that you can pick up for a bargain price if you hurry.
Dirt Bike Unchained is an impossibly good-looking dirtbike racer from Red Bull. It features real riders from around the world, and multiplayer. You can grab it for free.
Developed by Itatake, Gumslinger is a bizarre by fun-looking PvP shooter in which you get into wobbly, ragdoll duels with other players. Worth downloading for the spectacle alone.
Sequel to the popular Mr. Pumpkin Adventure, Mr. Pumpkin 2 takes you into the infamous Kowloon Walled City for some surreal, Machinarium-esque point and click adventuring.
Like a cross between FTL, Oregon Trail, and Doom, Hyperspace Delivery Service is a retro strategy game in which you have to deliver a package to the other side of the known universe.
Rebel Cops is a spin-off of HandyGames’s This is the Police. It sees you going up against a crimelord in the shoes of a principle renegade cop. The gameplay and tactical and sandbox, with an isometric point-of-view.
Crash Bandicoot is out now, but only in Malaysia. The game is going through a soft-launch there, before rolling out (probably quite soon) to the rest of us. It’s Minions Rush-esque auto-runner, as you could probably have guessed.
Blade XLORD is a hero-collecting RPG, made by the hands that made several of the Final Fantasy and Chrono Trigger games. It comes from RPG specialist Applibot, and it contains idle elements.
Inspired by ’80s Saturday morning cartoon Dino Riders, Dino Squad is a multiplayer mech shooter starring 17 different species of dinosaur, all of them armed to the teeth – and not just with teeth.
Chucel, the comedy adventure game from Machinarium developer Amanita Design, is currently less than half-price. In case you need the pitch, it sees you trying to obtain a juicy red cherry in the face of constant failure. Bonus announcement: Machinarium is cheap too. Both are $1.99.
Prune was rightly showered with praise when it first launched in 2015. This unique puzzler sees you pruning the branches of a tree to guide its growth around various obstacles and towards a lurid red sun. It’s currently 99c.
Bad North is a marvellous little real-time strategy game in which you have to defend a beautifully drawn little island against waves of Viking invaders. It’s just $2.49 right now, and comes highly recommended.
