iOS And Android Games Of The Week: September 20, 2013
With lines of 150 people or more at Apple stores across the U.S., that means new iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S users will download the hottest games to their shiny toys. Luckily for them, we received two excellent titles, one of which is also available for Android devices.
Epic Games cancelled Infinity Blade Dungeons, and quite frankly, who needs it? Certainly not us, now that Infinity Blade 3 made its long-awaited debut. Chair Entertainment one-upped previous entries in the series with prettier visuals, two playable characters, a new hub world and well over 100 different weapons to equip. Now throw in quality voice acting, the ability to upgrade previously mastered weapons and the same excellent hack-and-slash gameplay, and Infinity Blade 3 more than justifies its $6.99 asking price.
We usually distance ourselves from the Star Wars prequels (the Phantom Menace in particular), but Rovio Entertainment managed to make these films bearable with its new Angry Birds set in a galaxy far, far away. You'll receive well over 100 new puzzles to master and more than 30 characters that span the entire series, which you can insert into the game by picking up Telepods in stores; think Skylanders. It's the same Angry Birds you love, combined with one of the greatest sci-fi franchises of all time. We even like Jar Jar this time around, so there's still hope for one of the most hated aliens in movie history.
