Note to humans: the zombies are coming. They might even be riding flying whales that swoop in from the clouds, wielding neon sticks they use to smite you with. So, you know, wear a hat. Maybe some protective goggles and a suit of spikes for good measure.
Zombieville USA 2 (universal) - The original Zombieville USA was one of the first big action hits on the iTunes App Store. Now, over two years later, this sidescrolling shooting/brawling game is back, and it does everything right! Control a lightly-armed character as you walk through the streets fighting zombies who are astonishingly resistant to bullets. Break out the melee weapon when all else fails, and keep an eye open for cash and items, as you'll need them to stay alive in this extra-challenging game. More zombies, more weapons, more characters, more stuff to collect, and more bits of scenery to search for precious ammo. It's a great game that works well on the mobile device!
Whale Trail (universal) - Baron von Barry is chasing Willow the Whale, but she's got a secret weapon: she can fly! Bobbing through the clouds like a bird, collect bubbles to keep Willow aloft while you avoid the Thunder Bros. and deal with an assortment of other obstacles along the way. It's very much like an inverted Tiny Wings, only with more air tricks (mid-air loops, anyone?) and a completely different art direction. Surprisingly well-made, and not frustrating in the slightest!
Neon Zone (universal) - Minimalist, glowing visuals. Physics-based puzzle gameplay. Responsive, smart controls. Neon Zone is all of that, plus basic geometric shapes! Tap the screen to place a cube on the glowing platforms. Tilt your device to move around, sliding to grab the white orbs that litter the field. Tap the screen to jump through platforms. Other than that, you're on your own in this delightfully tricky brain teaser of a game. It plays a lot better on smaller devices, as it can be a bit of a hassle to rotate a tablet efficiently. Also available: Neon Zone Free for iOS and on Google Play Android Games as Neon Zone and Neon Zone Free.
