Question: What do building-block fortresses, the great and powerful Oz, Greek gods, mini ninjas and rolling boulders have in common? The answer: Nothing! Except that they’re all in this week’s roundup of iPad games.
Until someone creates a game that involves all five of those things, you can take them on one at a time with the following. Click “more” to get started.
Here we blend what’s real with what’s perhaps not so real. While the goal of Real Racing 3 is to make you feel like an actual race car driver who’s speeding around the Hockenheimring, Deepworld creates a completely made-up — but utterly fantastic — universe filled with scattered pieces of technology that you must put back together.
Also, Zen Pinball brings the wildest tables of your dreams straight to your device, and The Silent Age asks what would happen if the terrible events imagined occurred following the Cold War era. Finally, Plague Inc. makes it your goal to create a global pandemic by developing and turning loose a deadly and highly adaptive pathogen.
Admittedly, a few of these seem more likely to come true than others, wouldn’t you say? Click through to start playing. (more…)
This week brings yet more variety, with the highly charming and very commercial-looking Cyto; the completely unique Krashlanders; and a heavy dose of military action thrown in for good measure, via Battle Nations, Bro Guns 2 and Mad Merx: Nemesis.
In other words, it’s time to fling, shoot, jump, ski, dodge, blast and “krash” your way into the weekend. Click “more” to begin!
This week’s collective of games range from the entertaining all the way to the extreme. If you’re in the mood for some lighter action, check out Cordy 2 and Supermagical, both of which feature charming characters and quirky plots and missions.
Blade Lords and Borderlands Legends HD are for more serious gamers and involve demons, ninjas, snipers and more. And the arcade-type game Rock Runners is a fun and challenging in between. Click “more” to see what looks good to you! (more…)
This week’s group includes a game about words, a game about monsters and even a game called Word Monster. How’s that for synchronicity? Challenge your verbose friends (or frenemies) to a round of Word Crack, which will have you both trying to uncover as many words as possible in two minutes. Then, serve up some stellar maki rolls to your adorable monster in Sushi Mushi. And finally, take on the monster of all word puzzles in Word Monster.
Of course, this week we also celebrate the reincarnation of the movie tie-in app The Hunger Games Adventures, which has been infused with tons of new updates and content related to The Hunger Games: Catching Fire — the second installment of the book-turned-film trilogy that’s to be released later this year.
Click “more” to begin the adventure. (more…)
This week we feature games with some hardcore battles on the track, as well as in the skies — Table Top Racing and Sky Gamblers: Air Supremacy, respectively — plus a few “lighter” games, like Pixel People and Little Inferno.
There’s also the hilariously named, but no less intense, Tennis in the Face, in which you assume the identity of former tennis pro Pete Pagassi, who must save the city with his fierce backhand and smashing serve.

How would you rather spend your weekend — saving New York City with the Ghostbusters; outrunning a banana avalanche with Banana Kong; tending a flock of Tiny Sheep; discovering whether you or a certain celebrity has a higher Braindex; or going on a Wave Trip in a world in which every object had musical properties?
Well who says you have to decide on just one, right? Click through to learn more and see what you want to try first! (more…)
Hope you stretched. You’ve got your work cut out for you this week, since you’re bound to be busy helping a little flying squirrel defeat some evil owl enemies; aiding a HoverBot return to another dimension; exploring (or re-exploring) all there is to know about Riven; commanding your own military faction; and giving a character named Marsh Mal a hand in popping some blobs.
While this week’s games could not be more different, they all have one thing in common: a high fun factor in my book. Click “more” to check them out for yourself and let me know what you think. (more…)
Have you ever pictured your life as a professional stuntman? Have you day-dreamed about which superpower you would choose? Or maybe you’ve imagined what the world would be like if it was overrun by zombies (and a celebrity basketball player had the power to lead the fight against the army of the undead)? No?
Well regardless, here’s your chance to get some answers. This week’s roundup includes games that let you play as Joe Danger, a stuntman who’s pretty good on a motorbike; as a retro time surfer who can practically rewind time at will; and as Shaquille O’Neal (yeah, that Shaquille O’Neal), zombie killer. Oh, and there are also a couple of games featuring cute squirrels and some amazing ants. Check them all out after the jump. (more…)
Of all the games in today’s roundup, the one I’m most excited about is Hundreds, and I think after you take the time to try it you’ll see why. Simultaneously exciting and soothing, it’s a wholly original game that I might just never get tired of playing, or even looking at it.
Let me know what you think of Hundreds and the other four games. Click “more” to check them all out. (more…)
