Conarium is an eerie, engrossing, psychological thriller, from Iceberg Interactive and Zoetrope Interactive.  It’s set in an abandoned Antarctic research base, which hides some dark and dangerous secrets beneath its facade of science.  This reality-bending game pays tribute to the much-loved works of H.P. Lovecraft, and is the perfect game to download just in time for Halloween.

Shadow of War App IconMiddle-earth: Shadow of War is a free-to-play mobile variant of the PC/console game of the same name, by Warner Bros. International Enterprises.  The mobile title is your standard hero collection, team building, arena battle game, with some light RPG elements.  If follows the same basic story concept as the console version, so it could be either a companion app to the console game, or a stand alone experience.

Angry Birds Evolution, and Angry Birds Match, are both super adorable and incredibly addictive new apps in the Angry Birds franchise, created this year by Rovio Entertainment. Angry Birds Evolution combines the classic Angry Birds physics mechanics along with turn based, arena style combat. Angry Birds Match is, as the title implies, a match-3 style puzzle game, with a tie in to the recent movie with the very cute Hatchlings.

Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow, from Jam City’s TinyCo and FoxNext Games, is a fun game app that brings together several game genres, all wrapped in the cool, quirkiness of the Futurama cartoon world.  This game is equal parts city building, choose-your-own-adventure story, arcade style combat, and space exploration.

 

Pirates of the Caribbean: Tides of War is a fun new city building style mobile game, from Joycity and Disney, available for free for both iOS and Android.   I’m not typically a huge fan of the city building genre, but for some reason, adding in the Pirates element makes this game so much more enjoyable than the usual farmers, medieval knights, or cavemen clans do in other titles.
