Fold the World (Free on iOS) – From Eon Games and Crazy Labs, TabTale‘s publishing brand for mobile games targeted at players 13 and older, Fold the World is a level-based puzzle game based on the idea of folding paper. The game asks players to help a two-headed spring named Yolo clear 60 puzzles by folding and unfolding the world in each level to connect pieces of a red line, creating a path for Yolo to reach the exit point. Gamers collect puzzle pieces as they progress, which help tell the story of the game. In addition, as players collect puzzle pieces, they also receive rainbow gems, which can be spent on hints that reveal the next move players should make, or teleport boosts, which instantly move Yolo to the next portion of the line. Players can earn additional rainbow gems by watching video ads.

Zoombinis ($4.99 on Amazon) – Following the game’s release on iPad and Android tablets earlier this year, Zoombinis from TERC, FableVision Studios and Learning Games Network has launched on the Amazon Appstore for Kindle Fire devices. The game is aimed at players aged 9 and older, and is a recreation of the original Zoombinis educational game from the 1990s. In the game, players will lead friendly blue creatures called Zoombinis through a series of 12 challenges on a quest to reach Zoombiniville. These challenges focus on concepts such as data analysis, pattern finding and problem solving skills.

NBA General Manager 2016 (Free on iOS, Android, Amazon) – Rather than a completely new game, From the Bench’s NBA General Manager 2016 is an updated game with a new set of features for the 2016 basketball season. The game allows users to manage their favorite NBA team, and recruit both former and current real-world players to their team. For the 2016 season, the game has received updated rosters, new rookies, new legendary players, updated jerseys and new daily tasks which allow players to earn more money to sign players. In addition, a new head coach allows users to increase their players to a higher level, while the ‘Player of the Day’ feature will feature one player each day who is available to sign directly for cash.

Fishing Fishing: Set the Hook (Free on Android) – From developer NOWGAMES and publisher Softmax, Fishing Fishing: Set the Hook allows players to travel the world and catch over 100 different kinds of fish (both day and nighttime fishing is available). The game offers over 150 pieces of equipment, like rods and fishing lines. Gamers can complete quests as they play, and can compete in fishing contests to win rewards. To celebrate the game’s global release, players will receive in-game rewards, as well as discounts on item bundles. Fishing Fishing: Set the Hook is coming soon to iOS.

Zombie Zone (Free on iOS) – From Mob In Life, this geolocation-based strategy game takes place during the zombie apocalypse, and allows players to conquer the world by exploring and claiming tiles, or zones, on the map, which represents their real geographical area. Each zone takes time to explore, and will contain things like groups of zombies, nests and bosses. Gamers clear these zones by recruiting units and sending them into battle. In addition to exploring and claiming zones, players can build a base by balancing the use of two key resources, wood and food, which are are produced at their base automatically over time. Gamers can upgrade buildings around their base to unlock new troops, increase their resource production rates and more. Many actions take time to complete, or can be skipped instantly with fuel, the game’s premium currency. For social play, gamers can join factions with other players, and these factions can battle against one another.
