This week may contain a Cut the Rope (TMA Review) contender in the form of Jump Out, a cute looking physics puzzle game that involves bugs trapped in various types of containers. If that doesn’t float your boat there’s Prose With Bros, a unique online game where you challenge others to create a more popular sentence than you using the same selection of words. This one even lets the public decide which of the two contenders actually wins. If nothing else you can always fall back on Pac-Chomp, the latest in the growing line of Pac-Man centric games. This one is match 3, but it might just have enough quirks to make it worth taking for a spin.
This week seemed to be divided between ports (iPhone to iPad and vice versa) and free games, and since I’m not overly excited about detailing ports (as I’ve likely already written about the game being ported), my list has a lot of free games in it. Starting off the list are two new city builders, Trade Nations and Smurfs’ Village. Trade Nations claims to be “cuter” than games like We Rule, but I don’t know how you can get any cuter than the little blue creatures living in mushroom houses. If you do feel like shelling out a bit of cash there’s Stenches, the spin-off of Trenches that turns the Zombie Horde mode into a full fledged game. From the “before there was Doodle Jump’ era comes Icy Tower, which to this day remains one of my favorite “climb to the top” games on any platform.
