It was a rough week for App of the Week. I could not find a standout app or game to award the prestigious honor of being called the best app of the week by iPhoneFAQ.org. I had intended to originally review Cartoon Craft, but there is a bug that will not let me finish the tutorial. This looked like it had potential to be a fun RTS/building title, but as of right now I cannot play the game.
App of the Week
This week we are looking at three new dungeon crawlers released to the Apple App Store. Dungeon crawlers are typically fantasy RPG titles where the goal is to complete labyrinth-like environments while collecting loot and battling different types of enemies. Roguelike dungeon crawlers are a popular subgenre on the App Store. In roguelike adventures the dungeons, loot and enemies are randomly generated. This gives roguelike titles more replay value since players can experience a new adventure every time they play. Here are three popular dungeon crawlers availble now for the iPhone and iPad.
Not all movie franchises can have big crossover events on the big screen like Marvel's Infinity War, but that's not stopping Disney from bringing its characters together on smaller devices. Disney has partnered with PerBlue Entertainment to launch Disney Heroes: Battle Mode. The action-packed RPG stars heroes from popular Disney and Pixar titles such as The Incredibles, Wreck-It Ralph, Toy Story, Zootopia and more.
Oddmar is a spiritual successor to the popular platformer Leo's Fortune. The game was originally titled Viking Mushroom and set to ship in 2016, but it never happened. The sequel finally reappeared titled as Oddmar, four years after Leo's Fortune captured many hearts on mobile devices.
This week I was going to do the "best" 2018 baseball games on the App Store, but a few of the popular, officially MLB licensed titles turned out to be disapointments this year. R.B.I. Baseball 18 currently has an App Store rating of 2.6. This is even after the game was updated to fix some of the biggest issues.

Hint: There's a lot.
