Hot New iOS Games this Week! Wild Blood, Drake Rider, Marvel Avengers Initiative, & More!
September is upon us, and as summer turns to fall and temperatures begin to drop, we can all be thankful that the App Store is hot as ever… As a testament to that, this week brings a handful of new games worth your attention. Check out the trailers and details below!
Wild Blood Universal
(4.5 stars with 2168 Ratings)
It’s finally here—Gameloft’s Unreal Engine powered game featuring characters such as Sir Lancelot, King Arther, and Queen Guinevere. Gameloft’s take on the classic story looks especially violent, and we can only hope they did the Unreal Engine justice after forcing fans to wait this long.
Marvel Avengers Initiative
Avengers Initiative Universal
(4 stars with 6522 Ratings)
This Infinity Blade spinoff features none other than the Hulk himself. If you love hack n’ slash as much as we do, you won’t want to miss the mix of Infinity Blade-style combat and Marvel characters.
DRAKERIDER for iPad iPad Only
(4 stars with 444 Ratings)
From Square Enix, here’s an RPG set in a place called Igraine. Play as Aran Lawson, a tracker who takes off with his dragon companion Eckhardt to save mankind. All five Chapters of Drakerider will run you a whopping $20.99, but you can try out the first one for free and go from there.
DRAKERIDER iPhone OS
(4.5 stars with 444 Ratings)
Monkey Slam Universal
(4 stars with 56 Ratings)
If saving mankind sounds a bit heavy this week, take a look at Monkey Slam—Chillingo’s brick-breaker that features a monkey and an ape. It’s just 99 cents and looks like a fun little affair.
Scorching Skies Universal
(3 stars with 40 Ratings)
iPhone gamers are generally hot or cold for aerial combat games, but if you’re a fan, then Scorching Skies is the ticket this week. It’s $5.99 and is described as a “hardcore game, not meant to be easy and forgiving to play, but even harder to stop playing!”… Sounds… great?
Infinite Warrior Universal
(3.5 stars with 200 Ratings)
This take on endless running drops you in a battlefield and has you taking down enemies as you seek to go far and collect gold. The genre is getting washed up, but developer Empty Flask says Infinite Warrior is different. We’ll let you be the judge.
