Watch your circles and give those skeletons what for.
2013 didn't get off to an impressive start game wise, but we did manage to track down a couple titles iOS and Android owners should take interest in. On the App Store front, we have the latest creation from Semi Secret Software, while on Android, Red Winter Software released a surprisingly fun role-playing effort that managed to grab us for quite a while. What games should you download this week? Check these out.
iOS: Hundreds [Download For iOS]
Semi Secret Software rose to mobile game prominence with Canabalt, the glorious black-and-white side scrolling effort that essentially kicked off the endless running sub genre. It remains to be seen whether its newest creation, Hundreds, will achieve that sort of success, but one thing's for certain, this game is thoroughly addictive. Like the best of the App Store, the premise is simple. Tap circles to make them grow numerically, with the goal of reaching 100 points in total. The catch? Circles turn red during the growing process, and if one comes in contact with another, the game ends. It's a concept perfectly designed for touch screen devices, and quite frankly, we expect to spend countless hours mastering the game's 100 plus puzzles. On that note, it's on sale ($2.99) for a limited time, and we strongly suggest downloading it pronto.
Android: Dungelot Free [Download For Android]
Android didn't make as much noise as iOS this week, and to be fair, quite a few companies are still on holiday break. We did, however, come across this charming and casual friendly dungeon crawler, which originally appeared as a free game on PCs and Macs. In Dungelot, players select one of four character classes (Paladin, Vampire, Brewer or Assassin), then set off to battle enemies and collect loot. There are no virtual analog sticks and attack buttons per se. Instead, gamers clear away tiles to discover enemies, keys to unlock doors and treasure chests. Ads get in the way, but the developer promises a free version in the near future.
