DASH as fast as you can! DODGE the oncoming trains! Help Jake, Tricky & Fresh escape from the grumpy Inspector and his dog.
2. Robot Unicorn Attack 2 (9.8/10)
Robot Unicorn Attack 2 is essentially a playable metal-ballad music video with a unicorn protagonist, sporting a long flowing mane rather than a blonde head of head-bashing hair. In other words, it is exactly how a sequel should be done, and keeps everything loveable about the first, improves upon it, and adds so much more. Sure most sequels suck, but not Robot Unicorn Attack 2. It gallops flamboyantly to greatness.
3. Dr. Sweet Tooth (9.7/10)
Dr. Sweet Tooth is as addictive as sweets seem to be to the crew of competitive eaters that stands in the way of the evil dentist’s plans for revenge. The story is unique and beautifully rendered in comic book style, and the square tiles and eaters are crisp, clean, and colorful. The characters are interesting, and the gameplay diverse with the various challenge levels, a tutorial, and an endless mode.
The graphics are at once delicious looking and disgusting, with the tiles of various sweets (donuts, peppermints, gummies) and the roaches and vomit. The latter really serves as a deterrent to failing, and the endless mode offers a chance to get the top score, in order to brag.

Shoot the Zombirds might be mindless fun, but even a brainless zombie can see how well developed it is in all components. It’s incredibly polished. From the body of it being fantastically rendered graphics, to the heart of it being engaging, simple game play Shoot the Zombirds in a great game.The graphic elements all work together, and even the user interface fits seamlessly. The wings flutter, the shadows glide past the windows in the backdrop, and the foreboding storm cloud roll. They even captured the look of terror on the pumpkids’ faces.
All of it together really capturing the feeling of Halloween, but not being cheesy, the game can be played year round.The gameplay, though simple in concept, requires a keen eye and strategy to make it through the rounds. Even patience is rewarded when several birds line up, allowing players to kill 2+ birds with one arrow.

Overall, Shoot the Zombirds, in not only a great addition to a Halloween game library, but any game library in general. It’s fun, it’s free, and it’s engaging.
6. Felipe Femur & Friends (9.5/10)
The team that brought us Present Danger, Felipe Femur: Bedtime Story, Halloween Campfire Stories, Gummy’s Thanksgiving Feast, Digital Dreidel, as well as Rock, Paper, Wizards!, ZebraFox Games, delivers with a new all encompassing app: Felipe Femur & Friends. Felipe Femur & Friends is less of a game and more of an interactive and fun hub to connect easily to the previously mentioned games, new mini games, and crafts that are hosted on the Felipe Femur website.
Overall, the user interface is excellent, easy to read, and responsive. Each character is well designed, and beautifully illustrated. Even when the chat dialogue is brought up and the chracter profile is enlarged, the lines and colors remain crisp. The app is professionally done and the art of it is perhaps the best of all. It’s interesting to see the evolution of Felipe Femur and his gang of of monster buddies from the original games to Felipe Femur and Friends, as well as through out the other games between those to that utilize the same children’s game characters. It’s nice to finally hear the character voices as well.
Functionally, the game/application is easy to use. Clicking a house brings up bios, links to crafts and activities, as well as super simple mini games for each character. The games offer little challenge which is perhaps the only minor fault in the app, thought, then again, this is designed from children, so with the characters shouting encouragement, perhaps it’s meant to be less about the challenge and more about the feel good feeling that the application brings. There is good replay value as there is lots to do and see, and also more to come with new characters easily plugged in with their our residences and mini games.
Overall, Felipe Femur & Friends is an engaging and convenient application, with professional artwork and user interface. The app is certainly worth a download and will likely consume quite a few of players’ free hours if they give the recipes, crafts, mini games, and dialogue options a try.
7. Pinball Fantasy HD (9.5/10)
Pinball Fantasy HD is one of the best arcade 3D games for mobile and one of the most addicting games out there! Who doesn’t like pinball?

Arcade or more challenging? Pinball Fantasy HD 3D features a large set of variously themed tables which will be interesting for everyone – for both casual gamers and pro gamers, for kids and adults. Everyone will find a table to their liking. And everyone will find favorite heroes and favorite locations!
8. Necklace of Skulls (9.5/10)
Necklace of Skulls makes reading a lot more fun than reading something like The Giver or the Great Gatsby in high school. Even players who have grown to detest reading will probably enjoy this game-book, as it is more interactive, tests the users decisions, and isn’t a pop quiz on the nuances of literary fiction.
The artwork in Necklace of skulls is unique and beautiful, and does the Maya culture justice in that way. Xavier Mula, a illustrator and graphic designer from Barcelona, provides stunning visuals with his unique style, and the images and user interface really compliment the story by the British author Dave Morris, who paints with words as beautifully as Mula does with his artistic tools. Together the two artists take their respective crafts to the highest levels and provide users with a game worth the price they ask for it. Paying up front eliminates any issue of intrusive ads, and the effort the developers put into the gamebook more than matches the cost to the user. Overall, the artwork is seamless and cohesive, and even the formatting of the words on the pages flows with the images and occasional animations.
As mentioned, the story is incredibly well written and certainly more literary than the popular Zombie High choose your own adventure games. But for everyone except those who skipped reading The Great Gatsby and other fine books in high school, those who think a game such as Zombie High that has very little complex sentences is too high brow, this will prove to be a positive. On top of the great story and the plenty of fun and hard choices users must make along their journey, there is a battle system and a shopping system installed, in which users can battle beasts like a serpent or choose to purchase helpful items with cacao currency. Certain options are blocked depending on purchases and previous choices, and each choice can help or hurt you, some taking your life points away. Each of the four characters also have set skills such as Etiquette that can be used in certain situations. Stages of the game have sections and this clearly illustrates how many paths and choices the user still has to make upon replay. The battle system consists of rounds of three choices (Attack, Defend, Rest) in which attacks take health and defend blocks enemies attacks. The battle system is simple, but fast paced and satisfying, as well as nerve-racking.
The story branches off, thus providing an abundance of combinations for the life directions, granting the game a high replay value for a storybook. Plus, there are plenty of lands to explore and items to purchase. Overall, Necklace of Skulls can be played again and again with minimal diminished returns, but in the end it is a storybook.
All in all, Necklace of Skulls offers an immersive story, several characters, plenty of choices, beautiful artwork and everything one could ask for in a gamebook, including a battle system. Many don’t like paying up front for a game, but to eliminate the other choice the developers had, ads that would detract from the piece, the price for Necklace of Skulls is a bargain.
9. Scary Stories for Kids 2 (9.5/10)

10. Sol Invictus (9.5/10)
Sol Invictus is based on Kyle B. Stiff’s choose-your-own-adventure book, Heavy Metal Thunder Book 2: Sol Invictus, and is the sequel to Cubus Games‘ gamebook Heavy Metal Thunder. It is available for download January 8th, 2015.
The user interface in Sol Invictus, like in Cubus Games gamebook, Necklace of Skulls, is top-notch. It is easy to read and navigate and this is essential, as following the lead character Cromulus as he navigates space and countless battles will engage users so much there’s no room for spending brain power on a confusing UI. The game is responsive and even has a sound element that goes very well with the crisp visual elements. The music is good at setting the mood, but some may find it, well, a little heavy. Thankfully, there is an option to turn off both sounds and music, so the game really caters to everyone. There is artwork throughout the piece, which is often good, or good enough, but some of it subpar in comparison to the UI. Overall, the art lacks cohesion to some extent, with some pieces being hand drawn and in a similar vein as the source material’s cover art, and other images seeming to be heavily Photoshoped photos, such as pictures of astronauts on foreign planets. Most are good, just not cohesive. Still, this detracts very little in the end as the best pictures are those that are created in the imaginations of the players while reading the inventive story.
The story is engaging, as well. As long as players can make it through the exposition heavy opening that sets up the universe and some of the past, they’ll find the rest of the gamebook is full of fast-paced action and tough choices, as well as plenty of stylistic choices such as whether they choose to have Cromulus wield a mace, sword, spear, rifle, shotgun, or some other tool in the arsenal of other weapons, as well as personality traits and skills such as public speaking, computers, navigation, stealth, and intelligence. Plus plenty more choices. On top of the engaging story is a battle system that seems to be a signature feature of Cubus Games. The battle system utilizes a futuristic looking pair of dice, adding a more chaotic-luck aspect to the game, increasing the challenge and realism.
The replay value is quite high for a gamebook as there are seemingly countless combinations of choices with the aforementioned arsenal of weapons, personality traits, and adventure trajectories, plus the battle system and fact that collecting certain items throughout the journey and leveling certain traits unlocks choices throughout the story. The gamebook allows for up to three simultaneous saves to be played.

Written by the author of the 2014 Ahhhhhhhh-pp Apes Halloween Contest User Choice app, Halloween Campfire Stories, it follows the character Rooster as he takes part in a bank heist. Players make a series of choices that effect both a set of stats and the outcome and direction of the story. There are several ends, including three strange insanity endings that are hidden throughout the story, and one official end that supposedly transitions into an up and coming ZebraFox Games production.
The graphics are on par with many of the Choice of Games professional artworks, as well as the rest of the ZebraFox Games apps, but employ a unique paper and grunge style. Many of the Hosted Games productions have the graphics take the back seat, but No Proper Thief does it right. The user interface is simple, but easy to read and the game is responsive.
The story of a fledging bank robber is original and engaging, and the choices throughout the game offer a real challenge to the reader. Many choices will lead to an untimely demise or prison time (checkpoints provided). Many other choices will affect the stats of personality, trust of the team, conscience, and physical wellbeing of Clyde “Rooster” Lamm. No Proper Thief seems to be a modern, exceptional take on the Bonnie and Clyde story, given the names and shady profession. The twists and turns are sure to keep readers guessing throughout the gamebook.
The replay value is boosted with the fact that there are several endings, including the three insanity endings. Achievements also add incentive to replay the game several times.
Overall, No Proper Thief is an engaging, well written story, with professional artwork and user interface. The author made an effort to give the game replay value, and it shows. The game is certainly worth a download for those who enjoy reading.
17. Final Fantasy IV (9.3/10)
FINAL FANTASY IV has finally come to the Smartphone and Tablets! The title first debuted in 1991 as the fourth installment in the FINAL FANTASY series.

It also saw the introduction of the Augment system, which enabled the transfer of abilities from other characters and gave players an edge in battles. This iconic title is packed with many other amazing features.
18. Present Danger (9.3/10)
The team that brought us the 2014 Ahhhhhhhh-pp Apes Halloween Contest User Choice winning app, Halloween Campfire Stories, as well as Rock, Paper, Wizards!, ZebraFox Games, delivers with a new Christmas themed app: Present Danger. Present Danger brings a little strategy and a bit of chance to the table this time around. Players open a potentially endless string of presents, each of which contains either an item or an enemy. Items can be both good and bad, and each offers a plus or minus to the three stats (HP, ATK, DEF) that players must maintain and grow in order to help defeat monsters, including the fearsome Krampus.
Overall, the user interface is festive, easy to read, and responsive. There are several cleaver weapons including a snow globe hammer, egg noggin’ hammer, Christmas tree shaped sword, and an igloo shield. Old friends from the Campfire Stories app also show up as plushies including Felipe and the werewolf. The interface is crisp as is the game play and the items are fun to see, as are the enemies.
The replay value is quite high given the random factor of the game. It remains exciting to see what is going to be in that next present. It is also nice to have a leader board as it makes replaying for a high score enjoyable and something to strive for. Finally, the random spawning of the creepy Krampus keeps players on the edge of their seats.
Overall, Present Danger is an engaging holiday game, with professional artwork and user interface. The app is certainly worth a download and will likely consume quite a few of players’ free hours this Christmas season.
19. Muertitos (9.3/10)

20. Moose & Zebra Kids Magazine (9.3/10)
Once Moose & Zebra Kids Magazine is downloaded and opened, a world of fun is opened for kids. Mind you, the bigger the window into that world (large tablet over 4″ phone) the better. The Magazine offers a splattering of interesting facts about African animals in the first free issue, and Sweden and Dinosaurs in the purchasable issues. The free African issue offers an array of fun mini-games. These games range from coloring tasks, to shape placement, to item drag and drop, to logic puzzles. Overall, the magazine is well worth the time needed to install the free download, and the expansion issues are well worth the $1.99 asking price, especially if you consider many children’s books sell for more than $10. The Moose & Zebra Kids Magazine is interactive and able to be played again and again with a fun dress up game at the end and a great, easy-to-navigate menu that allows users to play any mini-game as much as they desire. In-app purchases are protected with arithmetic equations that older children will be able to solve, so be wary of that, but for the target audience, this should protect them enough, and allows for an ad free experience. Issues seem only to arise in the use of smaller devices like 4″ android phones and iPhones, as controls can sometimes seem unresponsive. Other than this, Moose & Zebra Kids Magazine provides beautiful, animated graphics and a crisp user interface, a fluid interactive component, and good replay value with new issues and a wide variety of mini-games.

29. Worldquiz – the 3D Geography Challenge (9.3/10)
Don’t let the images of Worldquiz – the 3D Geography Challenge keep you from downloading the app. Unlike what the images might lead one to believe, the app is not flat like mankind once thought the world was, but rather a beautifully rendered 3D globe.
The graphics in Worldquiz – the 3D Geography Challenge are top notch and very professional, with a fully rendered, illuminated earth, complete with deserts and tropics, as well as the boarders implemented by humans. The user interface around the globe compliments it, and is also quite professional. And moving about it is fluid, as is zooming in.
The game is really a valuable learning tool, as many players will be surprise in how little they really know about the world they live on, and the where countries and cities are located within it. The app scores players on how close they are to the actual located of the prompted location, and even maps a line from the guess to the actual location. On top of this, the game provides plenty of interesting facts (sourced from Wikipedia) and provides links which players can follow to learn more. With multiple modes of play, including practice, time attack and normal, as well as multiple difficulty levels and plenty of new places to learn about, there is quite a lot to do in Worldquiz – the 3D Geography Challenge.

30. Iron Snout (9.3/10)
It’s the little piggy’s turn to huff and puff and blow his enemies away with an arsenal of attack moves, including a fast punch, uppercut, jump, kick, split kick, flip, duck, slam, catch, grab and throw.
The graphics in Iron Snout offer an interesting contrast to the violent theme. Cartoon and adorable, the graphics lighten the otherwise hyper violent game play and make it a lighthearted, causal source of fun. The characters, both pig and wolves, respond perfectly, and a lot of work seems to have gone into making sure the movements appear fluid. There is a stylistic uniqueness to the characters and with action bubbles exclaiming things like BLAM and POW there is a nod to comics and perhaps even the classic Batman TV show.
Iron Snout simple appearance packs quite a punch. The number of attack moves is impressive, as is the variety of wolves that seek to kill the pig. Weapons can be picked up or caught mid air and thrown back at the hordes of enemies with a great sense of satisfaction for the player. The game takes the stationary, directional fighter and makes it near perfect. It’s easy to pick up but difficult to master, requiring quick reflexes and a sense of strategy, which is a feature that many games strive to achieve but never do. Given that the game is simple, but engaging, there is a good amount of replay value, especially with the leaderboards.
All in all, Iron Snout offers players a ironclad source of causal fun and is certainly worth the download.
31. Fallout Shelter (9.3/10)
Fallout Shelter puts you in control of a state-of-the-art underground Vault from Vault-Tec. Build the perfect Vault, keep your Dwellers happy, and protect them from the dangers of the Wasteland.
32. CHAOS RINGS Ω (9.2/10)
CHAOS RINGS Ω is a welcome addition the CHAOS RINGS series from the masters of RPGs Square Enix. The game is an immersive gaming experience offering hundreds of hours of game play, with painstakingly drawn exportable areas, a fascinating cast of characters and monsters, and a captivating story.
CHAOS RINGS Ω stands alone as a great game and is a wonderful additon to the CHAOS RINGS series, with an equally interesting story. The graphics are a perfect mix of both 3D and 2D—the game is beautifully rendered, from the detailed backgrounds, to the character models, to the enemies, to the portraits, to the user interface.
The game play is as interesting as the graphics. With a variety of activities, CHAOS RINGS Ω remains engaging throughout.
