iOS And Android Games Of The Week: June 7, 2013
We have two quality games for you to play this weekend. For iOS, there's a match-three game with a scurvy twist, while on Android, prepare for all-out mayhem using a tennis racket. On that note, let's begin.
iOS: Scurvy Scallywags [Download]
Beep Games had our collective attention the moment it described Scurvy Scallywags as a "musical match-3 RPG." As it turns out, this is one of the finest mash-up games we've seen, with addictive puzzling and a wide assortment of special skills, randomly generated islands and side quests. Beyond that, we customized our pirates with hats, shirts and swords for a more personal touch, and there's even an option to share our pirates on social media. Without question $0.99 well spent.
Android: Quadropus Rampage [Download]
What exactly is a Quadropus, and why is it so angry? Don't worry about such questions. Instead, sit back and enjoy this bizarre and thoroughly entertaining action RPG from developer Butterscotch Shenanigans. In it, you control a four-legged cephalopod as the little guy lays waste to countless enemy critters. Pick up randomly generated weapons, unlock 23 achievements and locate 39 treasures. This is one of those off-the-wall games that would've been a great fit in the 90s, back when heroes had plenty of "tude."
