10 New iPhone and iPad Games You Need to Play This Week

By Jim Squires |

If you’re looking to continue the adventures of your favorite films and TV shows, this is a pretty good week to be a mobile gamer. Star Wars, Downton Abbey, and even Rambo have new games on the App Store right now — and as a fan of all three, I feel like I’ve hit some sort of nerdy trifecta.

If you’ve wisely shunned the worlds of film and TV, you’ll be pleased to know there’s a new football game from Hothead, a sequel to Puzzle Craft, and more. New iPhone and iPad games abound!

Star Wars Uprising

Kabam proved they know the dungeon crawling formula with Spirit Lords earlier this year, so who better to trust with a similar game in a galaxy far, far away? Get in and level up fast — you’ve only got three months until the next film hits theatres.

Downton Abbey: Mysteries of the Manor

The last season of Downtown Abbey starts in just two weeks, and I have quite the sadface about it. Thanks to Activision, though,I’ll be able to spend a little more time at the Abbey as I hunt for hidden objects.

Boom Boom Football

Outside of new entries in their “Big Win” sports games, we haven’t seen much new from Hothead Games in a while. This week they’ve decided to take a different approach to the pigskin classic, and just in time for the start of the NFL season.

Rambo – The Mobile Game

Whenever anybody thinks of Rambo, they tend to think of big guns and over-the-top action. This mobile game is no different — though wouldn’t you rather see a survival game based on First Blood? Make it happen, internet!

Puzzle Craft 2

Match-3 and towncrafting were a winning combination in 2012’s Puzzle Craft, and it turns out we liked it just as much when we checked out the sequel in July before its worldwide release. Now it’s your turn to get matching.

Skilltree Saga

Set in the world of The Dark Eye, Skilltree Saga is described as a “casual RPG with roguelike elements.” Random enemies, 100 stages, and plenty of enhancements await.

Mucho Taco

Tired of clicker games? Maybe you just need a swiper! Mucho Taco is a game of rapidly swiping to make as many tacos as you can, earning money to upgrade your taco business. This one is published by Noodlecake — the same folks who put your last favorite clicker game, Bitcoin Billionaire, on the map.

Towers Runner


Cleaning windows is a tough job no matter how you slice it — but dodging zombies and saving damsels deserves a little overtime pay. It’s a good thing there are coins to collect.



Hard-boiled pulp detective novels meet 80’s style text adventures. Two old, fantastic forms of narrative combine to form something truly unique in PataNoir.
