New iPhone And iPad Games April 25, 2013
Suit up and get ready for four imminent big-name games.
We're gearing up for another round of releases at midnight tonight, but which are the biggest games we think are worth keeping an eye on? From zombies to board games, there's plenty of variety to be found in our round-up this week, even if the number on offer is a little lower than usual. Let's see what might trouble the App Store charts this weekend.
Iron Man 3
Ah, the curse of the mobile movie cash-in. Will it strike again with Gameloft's Iron Man 3? We'll have to wait and see when the game hits the App Store later on tonight. Until that time, we can only go on the promise of an aerial action game that pits Tony Stark against the A.I.M. forces, set in three environments from around the globe. There are 18 special suits to research and develop in total, and you can get a sneak preview of all of them over at our gallery.
Zynga's War of the Fallen left us wanting a little bit more when we reviewed it earlier today, so here's hoping this new strategy card game from Games Workshop does a little more to scratch at our cardboard cravings. Ten characters from the original board game are included in this touchscreen edition, and there are 50 magical quests to work your way through. We expect the game to be priced at $3.99 when it hits the US App Store at midnight tonight, and we hope to bring you our review before the end of tomorrow.
Robot Unicorn Attack 2
If the ridiculously kitsch delights of the original Robot Unicorn Attack couldn't wring a smile out of you, then you have a heart of stone. As with the first game, you'll need to gallop endlessly across floating platforms, but this time the game is free to play. The currency you earn can be used to buy majestic new manes and wigs, and there'll be personal and community goals to work towards too. There's no trailer for the sequel yet, but this gameplay video of the first game should give you an idea of what to expect.
The House of the Dead: Overkill - The Lost Reels
AKA, too many words in your game title. Anyway, this latest release from SEGA showcases remixed worlds from The House of the Dead Overkill, and includes two different modes - Survival and Story. In both cases, you'll want to rip through the undead as efficiently as possible in order to scoop up plenty of in-game cash, upgrade your weapons, and then do it all over again for even more cash - the cycle of death. There's no official trailer available for the game right now, so we'll have to make do with some Gamescom footage in the meantime.
