iOS And Android Games Of The Week: April 26, 2013
Dice rolls and headshots.
With the weekend quickly approaching, now is a great time to download the very best iOS and Android games for your mobile device. As it turns out, several great ones debuted on the respective App Stores. How does a quality port of a beloved board game sound, or waves of flesh-eating zombies lining up to get slaughtered? Really, you can't go wrong with either game.
Thumbstar Games received plenty of kudos for adapting the celebrated board game for iPhone and iPad. The result is a highly polished fantasy adventure filled with depth, intrigue and unpredictability. Embark upon a memorable quest using one of 10 characters while at the same time enjoying a wholly original soundtrack and a gripping plot that evolves over 50 challenging quests. Will the next dice roll lead to victory or your doom? Let's find out.
Zombies and video games remain a perfect match, and thanks to Sega's blood-filled shooter, it's easy to see why. With levels pulled from the Wii and PlayStation 3 versions of Overkill, you'll explore a monster-plagued mansion and other enemy-ridden locales, gunning down these creatures and watching their heads explode in a big red gush. Having to purchase the third episode for an additional $1.99 (after spending $4.99 to download the game) is a bit greedy on Sega's part, but we can't resist the addictive touch-to-shoot controls and the ensuing carnage.
