Halloween will be a little stranger this year when the hit Netflix show Stranger Things returns this October, but you can get your fix a little early by playing the official mobile game on iOS. Stranger Things: The Game was released to the Apple App Store today. It is of course an 8-bit recreation of Hawkins, Indiana with familiar locations from the award winning series, such as Mirkwood Forest and Hawkins Lab.
When Super Mario Run was released at the premium price of $9.99 for the full version, iOS fans were concerned that Nintendo would not add any new content. While there have been a few minor updates that have added different color Yoshis and other minor details, there hasn't been a major update that has added new levels or worlds since the game's initial release.
This is about the change as Nintendo announced this week it its planning a major update on September 29th. The update will bring a new level, world, unlockable character and more. Here's what we know so far:
While most Apple fans were busy complaining about the iPhone X notch, developer Ironhide launched its long awaited real time strategy game Iron Marines to the App Store. Ironhide is the studio behind the popular tower defense series Kingdom Rush. Iron Marines moves the action from a medieval fantasy world filled with elven warriors and legendary monsters to outer space.
Developer Ironhide Games set the bar so high with the tower defense game Kingdom Rush that they have never been able to top it. This doesn't mean that the sequel Kingdom Rush Frontiers and prequel Kingdom Rush Origins aren't great, they just never had a chance. The same goes for Ironhide's new sci-fi title Iron Marines. While a decent title that I highly recommend, Kingdom Rush still stands as one of the best tower defense games ever created.
Telltale Games has been around since 2004, but they didn't become a household name until 2011 when they released Walking Dead: The Game. The App Store title based on Robert Kirkman’s award-winning comic book series also helped Telltale release other apps based on popular properties such as Game of Thrones and Batman. Now six years later the title that put the studio on the map, and a few other Telltale games, are available at various discounted prices on the Apple App Store.
The first episodes of both Season 1 and Season 2 of the Walking Dead mobile game are currently available for free. Telltale is also offering season passes for both titles at $4.99 and $6.99, respectively. If that's not enough Walking Dead for you, A New Frontier and Michonne are also available at the discounted price of $4.99.
