Studio Yunbin Xie took the best of arcade games and did a mix — Pixels Advance. The aim of the game is somewhat reminiscent of PAC-man, but because of the unlimited speed and constantly falling it is rather like a Snake. The developers have tried to make the game as old-school, by using the pixel graphics and the appropriate sound.
In Advance all just Pixels. Immediately after launch you get to the main menu. Here the game highlights the start button — will not miss.
To move around the playing field you can use the swipe. Slide right — the character is sent to the right, swipe left — character runs left. Here it appears first, unlike Snake. Hero is set: to make the hook to rotate 180 degrees is not necessary.

Deus Ex: The Fall is a backstory to the events of the popular game Deus Ex: Human Revolution. This project can safely be called one of the most thoughtful and atmospheric games for iOS and Android. Deus Ex: The Fall takes us into the futuristic world of 2027 – Golden era science, technology and “advanced” people.
Unlike Human Revolution the narrative in The Fall is on behalf of a former employee of British intelligence Ben Saxon, has a huge number of mechanical implants that extend human capabilities. However, there is one problem: to prevent rejection of implants Ben is forced to make vital and expensive drugs “Neuropathy”, which production is monopolized by the company VersaLife. After a confrontation with colleagues Ben gets into an elite unit of the Titans, however, understands that there is no truth. Now he has to deal with the global conspiracy and save his life.
Gameplay Deus Ex: The Fall happens in the same way as Human Revolution. Between missions you will advance through relatively safe zones, get tasks, read the story notes and to replenish the Arsenal and purse everything. With the passage of the jobs can be used as stealth or “Rambo”, destroying all enemies on the way. Compared to Human Revolution, silent passage in The Fall gives a much easier: dead enemies disappear after a short time, and the artificial intelligence needs work.
In management have adopted a hybrid approach. Aim and you can move using dual virtual joysticks and tap in the right place or wall, and ideally you should use both methods. Unaccustomed to this approach may seem complicated, but really need to remember only a few principles, like the shelter by double-clicking on the object. In General, the developers of Square Enix have implemented a decent control for touch devices.
The game has in-app purchases. In the shop you can buy weapons and modifications thereto, bullets, sets of Praxis, and so For those who are willing to pay “real” money, it will simplify the gameplay, but actually in-app purchases optional.

Shadow Blade: Reload is not a sequel of the famous platformer Shadow Blade, and an expanded edition. From the original, the game features refined gameplay, better design and the storyline.
The changes did not affect the main character – we have the same nimble ninja named KURO. His clan destroyed enemies, and the guy wants revenge. He is armed with a katana, and shuriken kusarigama and goes to smash the insolent opponents. Unlike the original version, augmented endowed with history, prepodneseniya in comic book style. The story itself though simple but also does not cause irritation.
Several developers have changed the structure of the levels, types of enemies and bosses, but not so much that it was evident to users familiar with the original Shadow Blade. And therein lies the main problem of the Reload – it does not give a new gaming experience, but complements the old, and then not always. New elements have refreshed the original, but significant changes were not made. Because the users who played the original version, supplemented by may not be as interesting as beginners.
But those who have not played Shadow Blade can safely advise its enlarged version. In it the strengths of the original accented, and the weak are pushed into the background. Player expects a campaign with three difficulty levels, two modes – race and challenge, forty missions, four epic bosses and tons of enemies and traps. The battle will take place very effectively: with acrobatic stunts and impressive fighting techniques.

To interact with the world of Violetta may either directly touching the objects or characters, or using telekinesis. She will have to solve riddles until, until you find a way to return to your home.

The plot of the game Opus: Rocket of whispers two people who survived the epidemic, trying to build a rocket to bury in space, the ghosts of the past. About the disaster will constantly remind ruins of the cities and abandoned buildings.
Opus: Rocket of whispers is probably the most unusual game we have ever played. If you are unprepared player, going into it, you are most likely after 3 minutes remove the game and forget that it was installed on your device. Judge for yourself, nothing is clear what’s going on in English, and the dialogues a lot. You need somewhere to go, someone to talk to. And then, after 10 minutes you finally start to realize what to do.
But the goal is simple, to build a rocket to get far away from this mortal planet. This game can be divided into two parts – the hangar, where the various parts and the crafting of the necessary modules and actually a study where all these parts from modules and you need to find. The graphics are simple, but very cute. The dialogue is also laced with sensuality, but this is for those who know English. The game is very interesting, and even if to spit on the plot and just gather and craft, it is worthy to live on your devices.
Overall, the Opus: Rocket of whispers can be described as a game designed for those who are not in a hurry, likes to sit, think, and most importantly the buzz of the atmosphere, which this game just does not hold.

- Developer: 111%
- Cost: Free
Developers from the Studio with a few strange name 111% can be considered real masters in making simple but very viral mobile games. In their Arsenal already quite impressive number of games with remarkable gameplay, but the developers never cease to amaze fans to play on. Proof of this is an arcade game spot called “SEAPONG!”.
So, we have the playing field from the cells with colored blocks. The whole structure with every second rapidly moves down, and in addition, we have the ability to increase the speed of its fall. First, with incorrect actions and, secondly, there is a special button — this is what we will push in those cases when you do not want to wait for the slow descent of the blocks. In the lower part of the screen is something like a water tank, and we in no event it is impossible to prevent the wet blocks — SEAPONG and it looks like a loss.
Game mechanics are the following: it is necessary to look for empty cells at the intersection of two identical blocks and to ruthlessly crush your finger in the cage — this will remove the blocks and release the overall game design. The most difficult stage in the game is the beginning, because in this period of the game we have immediately to deal with a cluttered array of multi-colored blocks, and also with high speed design. If you manage to clean up this mess — you can count on a good outcome.
At first glance, everything that happens in the game is very reminiscent of primitive logical arcade for attentiveness, but here things are different. If you manage to remove from the playing field of one hundred blocks, You will be taken to the next level. The gameplay will remain completely unchanged, but will change the blocks: first, colorful and understandable blocks will change on the numbers, will be introduced after the blocks with different images — all this significantly complicates the gameplay.
As in the game of such levels is unknown. The developers decided not to disclose this information, but instead, we from the first minute of gameplay the following is known: we have only 10 lives. If You have completely exhausted, and interest in the game SEAPONG still not lost, you have two options: You can buy an unlimited number of lives, or pass — the last step will be rewarded with 7 bonus lives.

Puzzles with letters and words — crosswords, charades, puzzles, and hundreds of other word games lately have flooded the app stores. They are fairly easy to play, in terms of mechanics and is quite difficult from the viewpoint of “complexity”. And all anything, but the vast majority of these games have one serious drawback: almost all puzzle with words bored after half an hour of the game. The monotony of tiresome of all. And here’s a new version of the puzzle that stand out from thousands of similar games in this respect…
The game is called Wordica. Already from the name of the app is understandable that the puzzle is associated with the words. Indeed, the player mainly will need to form letters into words.
The point which distinguishes Wordica from any other word games is that it has a story, and not what aby, and full, with beautifully drawn graphics and even voice acting. In the story, our hero in search of adventure falls on the threshold to the elder, who owns a special magic staff. This staff is famous for the fact that he can turn every word into a real, tangible object. And who wouldn’t be interested to get acquainted with these miracles? Our hero decides to stay and grasp the essence of this entertaining magic. What will help him and the elder is the Keeper of the Magic Stick.
The game mechanics are clear and simple, but the gameplay is interesting and sometimes even hardcore. The player just need to form words. Depending on the job, it can be as specific word (the choice is directly linked with the storyline) and random — the ones that will be able to find the player. They need to look for on the playing field, consisting of squares with letters. Found the word — the letters of its components disappear from the playing field. To choose letters, you just need to hold your finger over them. You can choose both vertically and and horizontally, and diagonally. Importantly, the letter was in strict order one after another. Sounds perhaps not too clear, but all clearly described in the training. It is, incidentally, also connected with the story and will accompany the player the first few levels.
As in most modern puzzles, in Wordica there are boosters. All in the game to four. First replace the letters in the field. If you can not get to find all words within a certain number of moves, you can try to use this booster, replacing the letters positions on the field with each other.
Second, with the icon purpose allows you to remove unnecessary fields from the letter, which can interfere with the passage level. Third, with the icon of the hammer allows you to remove the chains and freezing. Finally, the last icon of a magnifying glass, looking for a long word on the field. To go with them much easier, but getting them is not so simple: they are bought for domestic currency and fall on the wheel of fortune spin which is free once a day.
In addition, there are bonuses. They appear on the playing field during the collection of words of five or more letters. For example, if you collect the five-letter word, you receive bonus fireworks with colorful animation flies across the field, randomly removing with it some of the chips.
The graphics are beautiful. Designers have worked on glory, bulging juicy 2D-image, which can be the envy of even larger projects from top designers. Music also did not disappoint — very good and atmospheric. All music in Wordica written specifically for the game, not taken from public libraries, as is usually done in low-cost applications.
In General, Wordica, perhaps, the best quality and unusual puzzle game from those present in the App Store and Google Play. It’s hard to find a game, which would fit with the same seriousness. Gorgeous picture, Russian voice, a true storyline and gameplay is non-trivial — think of this successful puzzle even a lot.

Akinator the Genie is an amazing app from Elokence. The main character of the game is the Genie that can guess the intended player characters, just by asking a few questions. No matter is conceived fictional character or a real person, Akinator will try to guess. Sometimes it seems that this Genie is able to read minds. But about all under the order.

The game has a total of five response options: “Yes”, “No”, “don’t know”, “May \ Partially”, “Rather no Not really.” The maximum number of questions that may ask Akinator — 40, but, as a rule, the Genie gives the correct answer much earlier. If the Genie was unable to guess the character the first time, he can ask additional questions. In some cases, the Akinator can not cope with the task, then the user needs to call the unknown character and provide a picture of it. In Akinator the Genie provides the child filter that allows you to make the game safe for children.
Akinator the idea is hardly original, but this game is worse than the first part of the Angry Birds. This is largely due to the fact that the Genie really is able to guess at anyone and anything — from artists, presenters and cartoon characters to animals and objects.
Because You can make any character, accordingly, the Djinn has a huge number of responses. If the first questions are pretty standard: “Your character really exist?”, “Is your character male?” and so forth, the next can be absolutely any. If the Genie is on the right track, he rises and smiles, and if not — then goes down and gets angry.
In Akinator the Genie has a mode of “My World”, where the Genie guesses the relatives and friends of the player, and collects them in a personal gallery.
