This week’s 10 New Games to Watch article was somewhat challenging. Not because of a lack of cool looking games, mind you, but because of a lack of detail in iTunes descriptions. Still, I managed to piece together what I think is a diverse and interesting lot for you to choose from, though I will admit that several of the games have RPG elements coursing through their veins. First up is the third installment of a popular Square Enix title, though the title Chaos Rings II would lead you to believe it’s the original game’s sequel. Among other features, this outing has a revamped combat scheme, so if you weren’t a fan the first time around it might be worth checking out again. If you love FPS games there’s Mission Sirius, an interesting looking Unreal 3 engine game from a relatively unknown developer. Match 3 fanatics should check out Azkend 2 HD – The World Underneath (TMA Review). I’d go on about this one, but I already have on several occasions.
Not too long ago before this review I wrote a preview for Azkend 2, so I decided to start over and play the game on my iPad this time around. I was about half way through the game on my iPod Touch, but the truth is that I’ve had just as much fun the second time around with this match 3 from 10tons. Actually, I think it was a bit more entertaining because I found it easier to pull off massive combos on the larger screen. Still, whether you’ve got an iPad or just a small screen device with which to play iOS games, Azkend 2 is definitely worth your time.
