While there are plenty of great new iPhone games and iPad games every Wednesday night, there are few weeks where so many games on my own personal wishlist release at the same time. It looks like I have a tilting, puzzling, splotting evening ahead of me. What are you planning on picking up?
Tilt to Live: Gauntlet’s Revenge
Hooray, more Tilt to Live! That said, if you’re a fan of the “just do your best!” survival mode, you may find that tonight’s release is a bit tougher than what you’re expecting. Based on the original game’s Gauntlet mode, you’ll need to tilt your device perfectly to avoid a cavalcade of carnage. Are you up for a challenge?
Puzzle to the Center of the Earth
Foursaken Media, crafters of fine mobile games, are back with an interesting hybrid this week that they describe as “Spelunky meets match-3.” As I’m quietly nursing a recent Spelunky addiction (and always love a good match-3), this is a sales pitch that’s not lost on me.
