Here’s a look at some of the additional mobile games that were released this week.

unWorded ($3.99 on iOS) – This puzzle game from Bento Studio follows the story of a writer who has been hospitalized after a serious accident. Players will enter the writer’s subconscious, and they will need to combine letters and punctuations to create objects, which will bring back memories to the writer’s mind. The game offers hints and skips if players need help completing puzzles.

Hungry Eaters (Free on iOS, Android, Windows) – This endless survival game from Kloppe Media was inspired by the game of Snake, and it challenges users to collect as much food as possible in each game without letting their character hit a wall or obstacle. In each game, the character will move forward automatically, and players can swipe to turn. Food is scattered around the environment, and as the character eats food, its body will become longer. Once its body reaches a specific length, the character will shrink back to its original size, and it will begin moving faster around the environment. If an obstacle hits the character’s body (not its head), the body will lose some of its length and the game will continue. However, if something hits the character’s head, the game ends. Users can collect coins as they play, which can be spent to unlock new playable characters. Users can also spend coins on upgrades for their characters. The game contains more than 80 different characters to unlock and 20 different gameplay environments.

Plantera (Free on iOS, Android) – This side-scrolling farming game from VaragtP Studios allows users to grow crops, bushes and trees, as well as raise animals such as chickens and pigs. As users play, their farms will automatically be tended by blue creatures called helpers, who will collect resources when they’re ready. Users will earn coins for each resource that’s collected, and the helpers will continue to collect resources (and accumulate coins for players) even when users aren’t playing the game. Users can spend their coins on new plants and animals, as well as on farm expansions and other items. Finally, users will need to protect their farms from wild animals such as birds, rabbits and foxes.

Users can also upgrade their ships over time. Players can send their ships to attack different locations on the world map, including kingdoms owned by other players.

Cube Knight: Battle of Camelot (Free on iOS, Android) – This dual-stick shooter from Bluehole challenges users to help Guinevere and other characters battle monsters on a quest to find the Holy Grail. The game’s levels are played from a top-down perspective, and players can use two virtual joysticks to move their characters and aim at enemies. Specifically, the left joystick controls the character’s movement, while the right joystick controls the aim of the character’s weapon. Both ranged and melee weapons will fire or swing at enemies automatically. Characters will earn experience points as they defeat enemies, and players can upgrade their characters’ stats and abilities as the characters level up. Users can also equip their characters with gear items in between battles. Finally, as users progress, they can construct new buildings in the kingdom of Camelot. For instance, users can construct a Weapons Shop, and they can visit the shop to purchase new weapons and upgrade their weapons.
