Penumbear

Downright devious, Penumbear takes you on an atmospheric jaunt as a teddy bear through a haunted castle full of traps and evil creatures to avoid (with your firefly companion at your side).

Slayin ($1)

Slayin Screen

The premise? To slay as many pixelated monsters as you as one of six classes as you level up and gain endless equipment against a chiptune soundtrack. The challenge? You only get a single life.

Available on:

iTunes

VVVVVV ($3)

VVVVVV Screen

Smart, retro sci-fi platformer with an old-school difficulty curve and a charming sense of wit. The twist is, instead of jumping, you tap to flip gravity, as you search for the missing crew members.

Available on:

iTunes

Space Expedition ($1)

Space Expedition Screen

The old school Space Expedition nails that remote feeling of isolation. Think a quest-riddled Metroid, but on the shorter side, with the ability to operate heavy machinery and a penchant for puzzle design.

Available on:

iTunes

Badland ($4)

Badland Screen

This is a compelling fusion of gorgeous artwork, accessible gameplay, and clever design. You have to guide your hedgehog-like creatures through a deadly forest teeming with life and machines.

Robot Unicorn Attack 2 (Free)

Robot Unicorn Attack 2 Screen

The second installment of the tongue-in-cheek Robot Unicorn Attack sports more than just updated visuals. New challenges and customization add depth to the endless runner, one set to Erasure’s “Always.”

Available on:

Rayman Fiesta Run($3)

Rayman Fiesta Run

Reveling in Rayman’s eccentric humor and fantastic level design, the latest installment in the franchise boasts familiarity and a score of unlockables — not to mention plenty of Lums and sausages for the taking.

Available on:

iTunes

Mutant Mudds ($9)

Mutant Mudds Screen

As a brainy homage to 8-bit gaming, this title cleverly sees you shifting between multiple playfields as Max, a kid with a jetpack and a penchant for hidden water sprites. Power-ups don’t come as easy.

iTunes

Continuity 2: The Continuation ($1)

Continuity 2 Screen

With this puzzle-based title, you must rearrange sliding tiles in order to move your stick figure about a minimalist world, collecting keys and opening the corresponding doors as you do.
