Based on the popular cartoon Steven's Universe, this is a light action-RPG with turn-based battles and puzzles. Each of the show's main characters are involved and have unique Crystal Gem Powers.

Dinosaurs Ate My Lawn
By Paul VanDerwerken - Free Dinosaurs Ate My Lawn

You're an old man with a water hose who goes after the dinosaurs on the other side of a portal that opened up on his front lawn. It's a geriatric action-RPG with old-school difficulty and pixel art.

Cubit The Hardcore Platformer Robot
By Software Scribes - 79p / 99c Cubit

A one-button platformer about a robot hopping in time with music. Its creator insists that its hardcore. It also features characters from other games.

Original story follows...


Corridor Z

By Mass Creation - Free

Two teens straight out of an American slasher movie and an army vet try to survive being locked in a highschool with zombies.

You control them as they run through corridors full of lockers, flinging debris at the horde, turning sharp corners, occasionally blasting them with guns. React or die is the gist here.

DUAL!
By Seabaa - Free

Consider this a normal shmup that has had its screen split in half and spread across two smartphones.

In the competitive modes you're able to hide your half of the screen as you try to shoot your opponent's ship, giving them less time to react. They'll probably do the same to you.

There's also a co-op mode if you're feeling more friendly. You'll want to stand close, get intimate, locking the two halves of the screen together.

Tiny Dangerous Dungeons
By Jussi Simpanen - 79p / 99c Tiny Dangerous Dungeons

Originally released in web browsers, this is a metroidvania with a classic Game Boy look, as you can see.

This mobile version has a wider resolution, a new game mode, extra hidden upgrades, and a whole new area.

Otherwise, it's the same monochrome dungeon exploration game as before - bats, puzzles, and health upgrades included.

CivCrafter
By Naquatic - Free CivCrafter

The appeal here is that you can build a civilisation with just one finger.

That involves gathering resources, building an army, and beating up other clans. You can decide to be benevolent or a right tough nut.

If you do play it, use your little finger to bring a touch of class, I would.
