Punch Quest (Free)
Combining popular mechanics and genres can easily result in disaster, but sometimes it just works. Punch Quest is an action brawler that blends platform gameplay, endless-running, and combat to create a deceptively deep game. It’s also just fun to punch things in the face. You can build up combos as you complete quests against an array of weird creatures and there are all kinds of awesome power-ups and collectibles. It is free so in-app purchases are a necessary evil, but don’t let that put you off, this is not to be missed.
Joe Danger ($3)
Who wouldn’t like a taste of motorbike stuntman action? Joe Danger is a comical, larger-than-life console title that has been reworked for your touchscreen. It’s platform gameplay as you focus on negotiating side-scrolling Joe and his bike through 50 increasingly difficult tracks packed with crazy obstacles. The difficulty curve ramps up gently enough to see you over the majority of the shark tanks and there’s a lot of replay value as you try to grab all of those coins. The gestures are quick to master and you’ll be glued to the vividly bright visuals for hours.
