Swipe the Deck

Swipe the Deck is a new (and intriguing) puzzle game from publisher Chillingo that pits you against your Facebook and Game Center buddies in asynchronous one-on-one card battles.

The aim of the game is to move and switch cards around on a 7x7 grid in order to create 'pairs', 'straights', 'flushes', and any other poker hands you can think of.

Basically, each game you play is a mix of poker and match-three puzzling.

As you play, you can use chips to unlock helpful power-ups that allow you to change the placement of cards, increase your time limit, and generally boost your score.

Monster RPG 2

Monster RPG 2 is a Final Fantasy-inspired turn-based role-playing game in which you take on the role of a plucky villager.

In true RPG fashion, your mission is to explore a monster-filled fantasy world, put together a crack team of classic adventurers, and save the world from the evil force that threatens it. All in a day's work, then.

Throughout your journey you'll stumble across more than 90 unique monsters that will attempt to rip your entire party's 16-bit throats out.

It's a good job you have plenty of weapons, magic spells, and potions at your disposal, isn't it?
