10 App Store Games To Watch [June 16 - 22]

There were a lot of fun releases this week.  In addition to the games I detailed below I enjoyed Furballs, a new shooting gallery style game with an attitude.  Instead of ducks you’ll be targeting annoying woodland creatures, and the dog will be sure to let you know when your performance wasn’t up to snuff.  There have been a lot of “simulator” type games released lately, and I actually found one I liked in the form of Raptor Simulator : Dinosaur Extreme.  With coins to collect and hearts to extend your time limit it feels more like a true game than others of its kind, though I still don’t get why humans fail to run away from these ferocious creatures.  Tower defense fans should check out Overtime Rush – fantasy tower defense.  I think it’s the first TD game where you’re trying to fend off hockey stick wielding monsters.

Collider is another flash-based arcade game where users must eliminate balls of the opposite attraction. Sound crazy? It is until you find out what Dan has been up to. Evidently his family and friends started to worry after he began ‘defacing famous works of art’ in order to get the word out. While TMA doesn’t condone tipping over The Thinker, we don’t mind someone actin’ a little off in order to get the word out.

Collider is expected to crash into the App Store in late January. Till then, you can enjoy his other arcade games.
