Here’s a look at a few other games released this week.

Bullet Boy (Free on iOS, Android) – From Kongregate and Pomelo Games, Bullet Boy is a puzzle action game inspired by the barrel cannon mechanic in Donkey Kong Country. In each level, players tap on the screen to send Bullet Boy between stationary or moving barrels, while avoiding obstacles and collecting special treasure items. Bullet Boy offers over 60 levels in its single-player mode, while players can compete against others in three randomly generated endless modes.

Power Rangers Dino Charge Rumble (Free on iOS) – From StoryToys and Saban Brands, Power Rangers Dino Charge Rumble is an interactive story app, following the new team of Power Rangers Dino Charge through an original story. Players watch the story unfold through videos, while battles introduce reflex or timing-based mini-games for players. For instance, players can charge up a punch by tapping when a moving circle reaches a stationary one, while they can charge a weapon attack by matching swipe prompts on the screen. While the base app is free to download, and offers some free content, players can unlock the full experience with an in-app purchase of $3.99. Power Rangers Dino Charge Rumble is coming soon to Android.

Calvino Noir ($3.99 on iOS) – Calvino Noir Limited has launched its first title, Calvino Noir, a film noir stealth game on iOS. The game sees players exploring environments in the ‘1930s European criminal underworld,’ and features seven levels across three acts. The game features multiple playable characters, and players can approach the game with stealth or brute force to make progress. The purchase price of $3.99 offers the first act of the game, while acts two and three are available for additional in-app purchases of $3.99 each. Calvino Noir is also available on Steam and the PlayStation Store.

Ski Safari 2 ($1.99 on iOS) – From Sleepy Z Studios, this sequel to the original Ski Safari sees players racing down three different mountains while running from an approaching disaster. To be specific, players will ski down a mountain while avoiding an avalanche, will escape a lava flow on a volcano and will run from a tornado in the desert. Players can ride animals and vehicles to unlock speed boosts, and can perform tricks as they make their way down each mountain. New multiplayer functionality allows up to four players to race against each other in multiple game modes. Challenge Attack, for instance, sees players completing objectives and stealing points from their opponents, while the Ring Dash mode challenges players to be the first to collect 200 rings. Ski Safari 2 is coming to Android in September.

The Walking Dead: Road to Survival (Free on iOS, Android) – Created by Scopely, in partnership with The Walking Dead series creator, Robert Kirkman, and Skybound Entertainment, The Walking Dead: Road to Survival is based on the franchise’s graphic novels, and sees players building a base and completing battles against zombies, humans and other players to survive. As players complete story missions, they may be asked to make decisions affecting the story. Back at their base, players can build battle items in the workshop, can train their troops to be more effective at the training grounds and more. Outside of story missions, players can raid other players’ bases to earn bonus resources, or join alliances with other users.
