New iOS Apps and Games: Yo-kai Watch Wibble Wobble and more

YO-KAI WATCH Wibble Wobble

Wibble Wobble is a new mobile title inspired by the popular Japanese role-playing series, Yo-kai Watch. The game is similar to a match-3 RPG where you connect little Wib Wobs to make them grow bigger and attack your opponent. The more Wib Wobs you connect the more powerful they become. The game is a lot like Pokémon where the goal is friend as many Yo-kai creatures as you can while advancing through various levels. Each Yo-kai Wib Wob on your team has their own unique special moves and level up after each battle.

Connecting the Wib Wobs is harder than most matching games because they wobble around in your Yo-kai watch. You also have to be really fast and use the correct combination of Wib Wobs to defeat your opponents. The game gets pretty hard right after the lengthy tutorial.

Yo-kai Watch Wibble Wobble is available for free on the App Store. The game includes over 200 Yo-kai to collect.
