There is an art to combining two popular genres to make one awesome game, and Gunman Taco Truck does it well. The new mobile title from Romero Games, combines two genres that are rarely ever used together, and the result is one of the most fun and unique titles to land on the App Store this month. Gunman Taco Truck is side scrolling action and recipe/cooking game that takes place during a mutant apocalypse. The goal of the game is for you and your family to escape to Winnipeg, Canada in your taco truck, but even the end of the world can't stop capitalism and you'll have to sell some tacos to survive.

Nintendo's second mobile title has finally landed on both the Apple App Store and Google Play.

Each week we test a lot of apps to pick one to highlight as our App of the Week. This doesn't necessarily mean the selected app is the best, it just means we found it useful, interesting or fun enough to share. Sometimes we even highlight the worst App Store stories of the week, like we did previously with Mega Man. This week seemed like we had an obvious App of the Week candidate once Pokémon Duel popped-up on the US App Store, but it turned out to be a disappointment. Pokémon Duel isn't the Pokémon game fans have been waiting for. It is a strategy board game where players collect Pokémon amiibos or statues to battle in real time matches. The tutorial in Pokémon Duel is so overwhelming you're instantly turned off by the game. There's so much going on and to learn that you almost lose interest before you even play your first match. The game also features really long load times and useless IAPs making it a complete downer.
