Buy ATC Pro on the App Store

Control the Tower with ATC Pro

If being in charge at an air traffic control tower is anything like the game ATC Pro, I'm not interested. ATC Pro can be enjoyable to play, but it has a pretty steep learning curve. (If you want to check out a demo in action, watch the video after the jump.) The objective is to successfully land and manage takeoffs without it ending in disaster.

Buy Medieval on the App Store

Medieval is a Polished Castle Defense Game

It's not often that a game can truly appeal to gamers of multiple skill levels. But I think that Medieval, the castle defense game from Brisk Mobile, is one of those games. Set the difficulty to easy and it's challenging but winnable, a good incentive for casual gamers to keep playing.

Zentomino is Peaceful and Challenging

Zentomino - Whenever I review a strategy game app, I pretty much always describe it as “hard.”  This may say more about me than the apps.  That said, Zentomino is a hard game, but not too hard.

Dark Raider is One Cliché You'll Enjoy

Dark Raider - I’ll admit it, I’ve got a soft spot in my heart for a good hack-n-slash dungeon crawler. You don’t really see too many of them being made nowadays, but I distinctly recall spending hours glued to a Gauntlet coin-op in my local Pizza Hut restaurant as a kid.
