13 iOS Games To Play On Halloween 2012

It’s that time of year again where things go bump in the night.  Those of you that live in the U.S. might think I’m talking about the election season, but I’m actually referring to that holiday of tricking and treating called Halloween.  As I’ve attempted to do over the past couple of years, I intend to share with you several games that I think will make this night even more spook-tacular.  And if the games seem to lean a bit heavily towards the zombie set I apologize, but that seems to be the most popular ghoulish villain by far.  Anyway, let’s get to the games…

FAA’s Free App of the Day – DrawRace 2

We’re working together with the team at Free App Alliance to highlight a great free app for you to check out everyday.

DrawRace 2 is an award-winning racer that’s packed full of content, including a gymkhana skill game and a single-player campaign that features no fewer than 180 challenges.

In this high-speed racer, you navigate your motor around a series of detailed top-down tracks by drawing your vehicle’s path with your finger. The speed at which you trace the racing line on your device’s screen dictates the acceleration and deceleration of your car. Don’t expect an easy ride, basically. DrawRace 2 and DrawRace 2 HD for the iPad are both currently free for a limited time.

Freebie of the Day: Squids Wild West

Squids, a well crafted turn-based strategy game that first hit iOS back in late 2011, remains one of my favorites in the genre. Now, its equally fun sequel Squids Wild West (TMA review), has gone completely free on the App Store (was $1.99).

SQUIDS Wild West has a unique mix of action strategy and RPG: build your team of heroes for challenging turn-based battles against corrupted crabs and shrimp! This sequel is even better than the original, with many surprises in store: devious new enemies, four new playable characters, and nearly twice as many levels. You can even ride seahorses into battle!

FAA’s Free App of the Day – Blosics

We’re working together with the team at Free App Alliance to highlight a great free app for you to check out everyday.

Looking for another physics-puzzler? If so, Blosics could be for you. In Blosics, you have to clear screenfuls of colourful blocks by firing equally colourful power balls at them. They come in 13 different varieties – each of which features a unique ability.

There are 120 levels to play through in this offering from FDG Entertainment (creators of Blueprint 3D), and plenty of achievements to unlock. Blosics for iPhone is free for a very limited time, while Blosics HD for the iPad is currently on sale for $0.99.

10 New App Store Games To Watch [October 15 - 21]

The big news of the week is the fact that Square Enix released an iOS game that I actually liked!  Ironically I’m not even a big fan of rhythm games as a whole, but there’s something about Symphonica that really strikes a chord with me.  If infinite runners are more your style, there are actually a couple good ones to choose from.  Save Them All from Chillingo challenges you to outrace mutants, aliens and more while rescuing as many innocents as you can until the end of each real world day, at which point the leaderboards are reset.  For something a little less apocalyptic there’s Aloha from Hawaii, a runner about four penguins that just want to see what it’s like someplace warmer than the South Pole.  And if you just want something involving lots of pure carnage there’s Carmageddon, the port of a 1997 game where you fare better by running over cows and pedestrians than actually completing the races.

FAA’s Free App of the Day – Random Heroes

We’re working together with the team at Free App Alliance to highlight a great free app for you to check out everyday.

Random Heroes is another excellent platformer from Ravenous Games. That’s the studio responsible for equally excellent League of Evil 1 and 2. Here, you have to take control of one of 15 different heroes, and attempt to save the world across more than 30 levels. You have guns and other weapons to help you out, but don’t expect a walk in the park – this is one tricky game. The app is universal, Retina-ready and currently free on the App Store.

Neon Blitz in Review – Warm Up Your Tracing Skills

I remember being slightly concerned that a simple line tracing game would be a bit on the boring side when Neon Mania came out.  It actually wasn’t a bad little game, but it seemed to be missing something.  I believe that its successor, Neon Blitz, has found that something.  I don’t usually care for games with timers, but in this case it gives the game play an intensity that was lacking in the first outing.  I still think it could use a couple of extra game play modes, but Neon Blitz took the concept from a decent but ultimately lackluster game to something that can actually become addictive.
