Top 5 Apps of the week: Fetch, Unmechanical, Plasma Sky & more
For all those who haven’t had the time or were too lazy to search the App Store, we make things easy for you. See here are our top picks for this week.
This game is so cute! A game, a dog lover would die for! But, don’t get so excited as Fetch tells the story of a poor kid who lost his dog. Won’t you help rescue him from the evil kidnappers? Yeah, that’s what I thought. This ‘piece of art’ from Big Fish Games boasts the recently popularized ‘point and click’ type of gameplay and you have to crack through different puzzles and games to proceed. With an adorable storyline, eye-popping graphics and a strong gameplay, Fetch grabs our top podium.
Dream Day : True Love (Free)
Another graceful display of stunning visuals and we’re sold. You might be familiar with the Dream Day series of games where we follow the life of a couple via hidden-object themed games. This one is no different as we bear witness to the life of Bill and Hellen through 7 decades of their eternal romance. This beautifully illustrated story is obviously not all for free and you need to unload 6 bucks to avail the complete game.
Similar to what we’ve seen with Machinarium, this one also deals will a robot (copter) which is trapped in a strange world. “Unmechanical is a puzzle adventure that combines tricky puzzle solving, alluring exploration, and an engrossing atmosphere. Set in a fantastic world of flesh, rock and steel, your journey to freedom requires you to solve a great variety of puzzling challenges, and while it’s easy to pick up and play, later challenges may prove very difficult indeed.”
Plasma Sky ($0.99)
It is highly likely that the screenshot might put you out, since we’ve seen more than enough of those space-shooters. But, have you seen them on neons? You should, coz its awesome! Just like you expect, countless number of tiny space shuttles attack you from the oblivion and you just shoot’em up. The neon ships, meteors, bullets, missiles and blasts light up those pixels and its like a party on your screen. For 99 cents, Plasma-Sky wouldn’t disappoint you.
CKZ Origins (Free)
Think of high quality free apps and Glu Games pops in you mind. Though freemium, most of their releases offer a great gameplay without shedding a penny. This sequel to the hit game Contract Killer is no exception as you cut through the rotten zombies and blast their brains out. Unlike previous titles, this game offers free roam and conventional FPS gaming, making it in no way lesser than any similar 5 dollar app. The graphics effects are pretty much same as before but the awesome combat experience it provides (for free) is unmatched.
