Are you looking for something different to play? Here’s a look at some additional games released this week.

Deer Hunter 2016 (Free on iOS, Android) – The latest installment in Glu Mobile’s hunting game franchise, Deer Hunter 2016 sees players travel around the world to complete hunting missions using a variety of weapons, including rifles and shotguns, as examples. Players can upgrade their guns to increase their power, stability and more, and will have access to tools like an infrared view while hunting.

Auctioneer (Free on iOS) – An observation-testing game from Cherrypick Games, Auctioneer challenges players to sell each item at an auction for the highest price by tapping on the largest bid amount in each group of bids. To be specific, an increasing number of bids appears each time a new bid is placed, and players must tap on the largest number to continue the bidding and drive the item’s price higher. Players earn up to three coins after each game, depending on the item’s sale price, with coins being used to unlock new auctioneers.

Stranded: Mars One (Free on iOS) – From publisher Deep Silver Fishlabs and developers Tama Games and Mutant Games, Stranded: Mars One is a level-based running game, challenging players to help an astronaut survive on Mars by reaching an escape vehicle before running out of oxygen on each stage. The astronaut runs across the screen automatically, leaving players to tap to jump, activate their jetpack, slide under obstacles and more. Oxygen also depletes automatically while running, so players need to look for oxygen tanks scattered along the running path. In addition to oxygen tanks, players can collect nuts, a currency used to purchase upgrades for the astronaut, or new spacesuits with better stats. Players earn up to three stars on each level, depending on their performance. Stranded: Mars One is coming soon to Android.

Rush Hour: Subway Sliders (Free on iOS) – From developer VIM Digital and publisher Thumbspire, Rush Hour: Subway Sliders is a endless survival game, challenging players to fill subway trains with passengers by swiping to slide each passenger into the train. As each train is filled, future trains may have differently sized doors, or doors in different positions, while the train station itself may have obstacles which complicate some passengers’ paths to the train. Players fill trains until they run out of time, with special clock ‘passengers’ giving players bonus time. Coin ‘passengers’ are also available, but players aren’t required to collect these coins or clocks to actually advance. As players collect coins, they can be spent on prize packages containing new passenger types. New passenger types can also be purchased instantly with real money.
