Need a new game to bide the time this week? It’s Wednesday night, and if you’re willing to stay up past your bed time, you should have plenty of great options to dive into on the App Store and Google Play. For example:
The Sandbox Evolution
If you were a fan of Pixowl’s The Sandbox — and if you enjoy playing God and creating worlds, you definitely were — tonight’s sequel should give you plenty to be excited about. Expect 170 different elements and heroes, as well as the ability to create and share your own levels with the community.
Every plant I’ve ever tried to keep has died an untimely death. Maybe I’ll have better luck with a virtual ficus. Viridi is a potted plant simulation. If you’re looking for your next zen gaming experience, this should be high on your consideration list.
The Secret Life of Pets: Unleashed
It’s a pretty big summer for kids movies, and The Secret Life of Pets is no exception. Starring Louis CK as a lovable hound (and from the creators of Despicable Me), it looks like a charming little flick of talking pets going on wacky adventures. So yes, there’s a match-3 game to go along with it.
Match-3 games blend RPG elements all the time — but what if there was a way to do it differently? That’s the question posted by Mighty Match, a game whose hero triggers matching rather than the other way around. In a word, we’re stoked.
