It’s been years since I’ve played a game that reminded me of my days booting up X-Wing and Tie Fighter on LucasArts floppy disks. Feeling that freedom of flying around in space and taking on enemies in zero-G felt wonderful. The next game to capture that was Wing Commander with all of its glorious live action cutscenes featuring Mark Hamill. Now though, it seems like I can have all of that fun in the palm of my hand. Beyond Space is a new iOS title that brings back all the nostalgia and fun of interstellar dogfights.
Prepare yourselves for the addition of an iconic baddie as Darkseid joins the roster in the Injustice: Gods Among Us mobile game.
God of Light is an app that expands on an already well-traversed universe of physics-based puzzle games. By effectively merging and infusing a distinct visual style and a standout score from hip hop act UNKLE, God of Light turns this brain twister into a sublime, if not occasionally evocative, experience.
Space. The final frontier. In Mi-Clos Studio's Out There space is really the final frontier because it's a place you're probably going to die in. A lot. And while death by oxygen deprivation, being burned to death in a supernova, or being crushed in a black hole aren't exactly ideal ends, it's the journey that makes these perilous outcomes worthwhile.

Coldfire Keep is a dungeon crawler which features several adventurers searching for riches within a portal that holds a plethora of creatures and evildoers. The app costs $4.99 to download, and although it suffers a few hiccups along the way, the game still manages to stick a solid landing.
Another Case Solved is free to play, and since it's a puzzle game the developers could have turned this game into a freemium mess. The good news is you can investigate a ton of cases without opening your wallet, and that's definitely a good thing.
Ava’s Quest is a slick looking new game that recently jumped out on the scene, and the earthy colors can definitely lure you in. When you’ve dealt with a couple hours worth of gameplay you begin questioning whether or not Ava’s Quest was a decent buy. It’s not due to the lack of things to do as the heroine, but a lot of the levels blend in together which makes it rather dull after a certain amount of time.
