It’s back to school this week, but that doesn’t mean that the fun stops in the App Store. Check out the newest action adventure game Horn. It boasts console quality graphics and excellent gameplay that should please any Infinity Blade fans.

From the makers of Dark Meadow, developer Phosphor games has teamed up with Zynga to deliver another eye popping adventure. This time, the adventure is set in a fantasy world where you play as a young blacksmith’s apprentice named Horn. Explore the beautiful lands to undo a curse that has fallen on your homeland. Are you ready for another epic adventure?
Puzzle Craft Universal
(4.5 stars with 16350 Ratings)
When you hear the challenge, “Transform your humble settlement into a kingdom,” you probably don’t expect a match-three puzzler. But that’s what Chillingo is giving us with the 99-cent Puzzle Craft. Should be interesting to see how they tie in town-building elements with the match-three gameplay.
Random Heroes Universal
(4.5 stars with 7735 Ratings)
If you like retro graphics and action platformers, then you should know by now that Ravenous Games is your developer. After bringing us League of Evil, they’re back with Random Heroes. It’s 99 cents and looks like the perfect follow up for fans of League of Evil.

Developer turborilla definitely has a niche. After bringing us Mad Skills Motorcross, they’re back with Mad Skills BMX. The 99-cent game is a side-scrolling racer, and the trailer makes it look immensely playable!
Flip’s Escape Universal
(4.5 stars with 242 Ratings)
Unfolding inside the world of The Last Rocket, this one-button minigame has you controlling a rocket as it races to avoid an advancing explosion. It’s 99 cents, and shouldn’t be missed by those who played The Last Rocket.
Disney’s Fish Hooks
Disney Fish Hooks Universal
(4 stars with 4463 Ratings)
Maybe you’re not familiar with Disney’s Milo character or the show we assume goes along with this game, but that doesn’t mean this free physics game can’t be enjoyed. It takes place underwater and involves bubbles.
Jack Lumber Universal
(4.5 stars with 387 Ratings)
For all its controversy, Smuggle Truck was a pretty good game, so we have reason to be excited about Jack Lumber—the latest from Owlchemy Labs and Sega. It’s a line-drawing, log-chopping affair, to which we really have no comparison. But for 99 cents, it definitely looks worth a try! Just watch the trailer.
