The social space has been flooded with text-based role-playing apps for years with a heavy focus on mobs. But the Western theme has never really been too common, which is what makes Bloody Western, from Mobicle, so initially appealing. An RPG not terribly dissimilar from the iMobs and Mafia Wars of the past, it's a title that seeks to stand out from the crowd with more than just a visual shift, but a compilation of extra features and systems. All of it works quite well too, becoming marred only by a conclave of minor irritants and occasionally missed opportunities.
- Wild Needle has recently come out with a simple iOS game for kids named Shoptown. It's an easy game that revolves around buying and selling of goods with the intent of reincarnating the spirit of home-grown business. Peppered with some curious location-based concepts, it's a game that feels like it's trying to do more with itself, but its uniqueness does not stretch far past appearances. Nevertheless, Shoptown has an oddly compelling nature, with the only notable problem being its slow pacing.
- Casual games developer Big Point is getting into the zookeeping business with its simulation title, Zoomumba. The most notable thing about the game is that it enhances the animal care genre instead of offering anything significantly unique. For what it is, however, it works, with most of its problems stem from minor usability issues.
- Modern Girl follows up on Crowdstar's previous release for the Girl series, Social Girl. It offers a handful of new visuals and outfits as well as a few new concepts, but most of the gameplay is familiar. Modern Girl still fairly appealing to its audience, but the app is rather underwhelming thanks to copy-pasted features and poor visual presentation.
- There have been a great number of slots and bingo games making their way onto Facebook recently. Beyond that, online poker games have been common for years. Nevertheless, rare is the case in which all of them are combined--or at least that's the hook that diwip is tossing out with its title Best Casino. Whether or not it actually is the best is subject to opinion, but if nothing else, it's one of the most complete Casino games on Facebook. Offering standard rules, special events, and six primary games to play, Best Casino at least provides something for many different types of preferences.
- The creators of the incredibly popular mobile title Smurfs' Village are taking another pass at the sim genre with the release of Fumbies: The Cloud Creatures. Taking many a page from its predecessor, the game combines the familiar with a very Sims and Pet Society-style feel, granting players the ability to care for a variety of quirky and cute bear… squirrel things. Relatively basic, the core of the app doesn't feel all that unique, but it is polished with a rather original presentation and a good number of perks are peppered throughout.
- Zombies are a staple of the gaming industry, and who doesn't love disemboweling those walking dead? Well, game portal Arcadebomb is hosting a new take on the theme with Zombies, Inc. It still goes into the whole "zombie apocalypse" concept, though this time around the outbreak is a bit more sentient and steering toward a more "world domination" route by using none other than U.S. capitalism. By building up a corporation run by zombies for zombies, players have the sole goal of raising a conquering army of the undead through time management gameplay.
- Munch Time for the iOS is a cute physics-based platform puzzler with amusing visuals, deceptively simple challenges, and a surprisingly versatile lizard tongue. Easy to pick up but difficult to master, the only real problem with the game is that it's done with quickly.
