If you’re looking for something different to play, here are some of the additional mobile games that released this week.

Riptide GP: Renegade ($2.99 on iOS, Android) – This racing game from Vector Unit allows players to race “rocket-powered watercraft” through a variety of futuristic environments. In each race, the watercraft will accelerate automatically, and players can steer using touch or tilt controls. Users can also play the game using controllers. As players complete races, they can unlock better watercraft, and they can also upgrade their watercraft over time. In addition to a single-player career mode, Riptide GP: Renegade includes eight-player online races, ghost racing leaderboard challenges and four-player split-screen local multiplayer races (each user needs their own controller).

Woody: Endless Summer (Free on iOS, Android) – This endless wakeboarding game from INDT challenges players to help a dog named Woody wakeboard as long as possible by tapping to help him jump over obstacles as he moves across the water. Games are timed, and users must reach progress checkpoints in the path before time runs out to earn more time and continue playing. While users are allowed to hit obstacles as they play, this slows Woody down for a short time. Users can collect coins as they play, which can be spent on upgrades for the game’s power-ups (coin magnets, time freezers and more).

Puzzle Monster Quest (Free on iOS, Android) – This line-drawing puzzle battle game from Kick9 allows players to draw lines connecting matching colored tiles on the board to move their characters and attack enemies. Players can collect new characters for their teams as they progress. Users can also collect crafting materials over time, which can be used to create new gear for their heroes. For a limited time, the game includes characters from Japanese manga series Attack on Titan, such as Captain Levi, Eren Jaeger and Mikasa Ackerman, along with unique monsters and Attack on Titan-themed dungeons.

Muhammad Ali: Puzzle King (Free on iOS, Android) – This line-drawing puzzle game from Cosi Games allows players to help Muhammad Ali win boxing matches by drawing lines to connect three or more matching symbols on the board. In each level, players are challenged to complete a specific objective before running out of moves. As users create matches, Ali will throw punches at the opponent. The more symbols used in a match, the harder the punch will be. Users will earn one star the first time they complete each stage. Users can earn two more stars on each stage by replaying them two more times. Each level’s goal will become more challenging on each star level.

Auralux: Constellations (Free on iOS, Android) – This strategy game from War Drum Studios challenges players to take control of every planet in each battle by assigning their units to take over neutral or enemy planets. Each planet a player controls generates units automatically over time, and players can assign groups of units to attack specific planets. When a player wants to attack an enemy-controlled planet, their units will need to outnumber the enemy’s units that are defending the planet, or their army will be defeated. Auralux: Constellations contains 13 constellations, each with 11 levels to complete. The first constellation is completely free, and the rest of the constellations include two free levels. Players can unlock individual constellations for $1 to $2 each, or they can unlock every constellation by purchasing a $10 bundle. In addition to single-player levels, the game includes multiplayer levels for up to four players.
