Bill and Ted's Wyld Stallyns
Okay, this one really is wyld as I think the last time I covered the upcoming Bill and Ted game was well over a year ago. Now, somehow, the game's dropped on iOS and requires your attention to save the world… and probably the babes. The future San Dimas in 2688 isn't great since it's been overrun with evil robots. It's up to you to travel through the Circuits of Time to figure out who's the mastermind behind all the destruction.
You're playing as an actual dude called Black Paradox, a bounty hunter that travels through time by using black holes to his advantage. I know, it sounds pretty wild. You need to help him take out the criminal organisation, Hellraisers, and its seven bosses for the sake of the galaxy.
If you've been dreaming about teeny, tiny golf puzzles, you'll definitely want to pick up Golf Peaks. Even if you haven't been dreaming about them but think it sounds like a swell idea, you may as well take a look. This puzzler has a neat card-based movement system with over 70 levels across six worlds, and it's gorgeous to boot.
It's time to take another tumble with AI technology as this sequel to Hexa Turn has you collecting squares. The AI's not too pleased about you working your way through 76 puzzles, so it'll try to stop you whenever and however it can, but that's where your logic comes into play. Use special moves in this turn-based puzzler to outsmart the machine as best you can.
Another game that feels like it sprung up out of nowhere is the pixel-perfect Hyper Sentinel. Get a flavour of the past as you go up against gigantic space destroyers, take on wave after wave of enemies, and fight some seriously mean bosses. Whatever game mode you decide to play around with, you should find a good amount of challenge and plenty of opportunity to unleash all sorts of weaponry on your enemies.
Power Rangers: All Stars
Hop into the Power Rangers universe in this thrilling RPG. Collect and power up some familiar faces from the TV show, create awesome teams of your favourite heroes, and pilot the biggest, mightiest, Megazords to vanquish evil for good.
If you ever wondered what the old Sega classics would looks like with a modern mobile game makeover, SEGA Heroes might answer that question for you. Build an unbeatable team, upgrade your heroes, match gems, and unleash mighty attacks in this cartoony battler.
Simulacra: Pipe Dreams
From the folks who brought you Simulacra and Sara is Missing comes Simulacra: Pipe Dreams, a free to play spin-off from the same universe. Anyone who's played the games before will know they have a bit of a creepy undertone and this one is no different. After growing rather addicted to a mobile game called FlapeeBird, the real question is whether you'll be able to help the main character, Teddy, before the game gets you as well.
Slide blocks left and right, and drop them into the grid to make full rows in Slydris 2. Sure, it sounds a lot like Tetris, but it's got mobile-specific controls which stand out from being just another whack at the popular classic game. Despite its shared features, there's more puzzle-solving and strategy required to get into it.
Truck Simulation 19
There are lots of things people like more than others. Some like fruit, others like dogs, or buildings, or gardens, or cooking, or whatever. If you like truck driving, however, I'm pretty sure this is your kind of game. Explore the open road across North America as you fuel up, haul cargo, take on story-driven missions, hire other drivers, buy more trucks, and enjoy honking your horn or flashing your lights as much as possible.
Yet another adorable game came out of HyperBeard this week which has a BIT of a Stardew Valley-vibe to it, at least in the set-up. Just as they were growing tired of city life, Tsuki received word that their grandfather has died, leaving Tsuki the family carrot farm in Mushroom Village. Now, living in the country, Tsuki learns to love the small things in life and to make the most of every precious moment. Aww.
