 IPHONE NEWS

iOS and Android Game of the Week - your vote needed

Fight for your favourite

Product: Game of the Week | Manufacturer: Steel Media
 
Game of the Week iPhone, thumbnail 1
Each week, thousands of new games hit the iOS App Store and Google Play on Android. Trying to separate the wheat from the chaff is a tough job, and no mistake.

We like to think that we do a pretty good job of it with our news articles, mid-week round-ups, reviews, and features, mind.

But, we want to know what YOU think.

Today, we're asking you to pick the best game that was released on iOS and Android this week (from some nominations), and then we'll present that winner in an article next Monday.

There are loads of places to vote. Leave a comment on this article, reply to our Game of the Week tweet, vote on Facebook, or just say the game's name over and over in your head while rubbing your temples.

The nominations

300 Dwarves (iPhone, iPad)

Long-time iOS gamers are a bit blasé now about tower defence games on iPhone, but Crescent Moon hopes you've got room in your heart for just one more. In 300 Dwarves, you set up towers to kill off invading green goblins. Easy.

Heroes of Order & Chaos (iPhone, iPad)

The App Store says 'hello' to its first MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena) title. This genre of game can trace its roots back to custom StarCraft maps. You'll choose from 30 lords, and then set off to overwhelm and overtake your enemy's base.

Dragon Slayer (iPhone, iPad, Android)

Glu's latest freemium game is a bit like Skyrim, and a lot like Infinity Blade. You'll bash massive great dragons in the chops with all manner of weapons and spells, then watch your life savings mysteriously disappear. How? How? How?

Bladeslinger Ep. 1 (iPhone, iPad)

Supernatural cowboy adventures now. Bladeslinger is Devil May Cry by way of Red Dead Redemption, as a Wild West hero does battle with the undead using blades and bullets. It may not be the world's best game, but at least it looks pretty. Good use of Unity there, chaps.

Skylanders: Battlegrounds (iPhone, iPad)

At first glance, Battlegrounds looks like a pretty basic action game. The twist, though, is that you can use a Bluetooth-powered portal to send your plastic Skylanders figures into the game to fight your battles. So, that's cool.

Tropical Stormfront (iPhone, iPad, Android)

A cool-looking RTS for iPhone and iPad, by a fellow called Christoph Aschwanden. You'll attempt to take control of islands while fighting off the military might of other countries. There's a desert version, too, if you fancy it.

Rage of the Gladiator (iPhone, iPad)

A WiiWare game in a previous life, this epic bad guy battler has you going toe-to-toe with warriors and demons in tense gladiatorial spats. The finishing moves - one sees you transform into a hulking colossus 10 times your size - are a nice touch.

Meganoid 2 (iPhone, iPad, Android)

Next up, it's pixel-art platforming from OrangePixel, who sure know how to design a rock-hard game. Meganoid 2's tiny levels are littered with traps, spikes, enemies, and other such hazards. Luckily, the touchscreen controls are up to the job.

Groove Coaster Zero (iPhone, iPad)

Taito's addictive rhythm-action game Groove Coaster has been rejiggered into a free-to-play game. You can earn new levels by playing well, or you can just spend some dosh and unlock the lot. Owners of the original premium game get three bonus tracks for nowt.

Chaos Rings Omega (Android)

Finally, Square Enix has ported RPG sequel Chaos Rings Omega across to Android. Strictly speaking, this is actually a prequel (by quite some margin - it takes place 10,000 years before Chaos Rings). You can blame George Lucas if you like.
