We take a look at some of the mobile games released this week.

Are you looking for a new mobile game to try this weekend? As usual, mobile app stores have been updated with new games from developers large and small this week, offering something for everyone. To start, GameResort released Stupid Zombies 3, a level-based shooting puzzle game challenging players to kill zombies of specific colors in each stage.

Next, D3 Go! and Cartoon Network launched the match-three puzzle battle game Adventure Time Puzzle Quest, and Amazon Game Studios and HotGen released the puzzle platforming title To-Fu Fury, starring a brave block of tofu. Finally, Outfit7 Limited, the company behind the popular Talking Tom and Friends franchise, branched out with Mars Pop, a competitive multiplayer bubble shooter.

Looking for something different to try? Here’s a look at some other games released this week.

Wakfu Raiders (Free on iOS, Android) – From gumi and Ankama, Wakfu Raiders is an RPG challenging players to collect warriors and complete level-based missions as they investigate the appearance of ‘anomalies’ around the World of Twelve. As players head into battle, they can strategize their team’s layout, with heroes gaining different bonuses based on their positions on the field (front row, middle or back). During battle, heroes will attack automatically, leaving players to activate their special skills or trigger team attacks using multiple fighters. As fighters attack or take damage, they earn mana, which can be used to activate their special skills. As players complete battles, they receive collectibles used to enhance their heroes over time.

Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers 20th Anniversary Edition (Free on iPad, Android tablets) – From Pinkerton Road Studio and Phoenix Online Studios, Jane Jensen’s remake of the 1993 Sierra title was first released on PC and Mac in 2014. In the game, players meet struggling author Gabriel Knight, who must investigate a series of killings in New Orleans, while discovering their connection to the world of voodoo. The remake offers new puzzles, scenes and updated graphics, with Day 1 of the adventure game available as a free download. The rest of the game’s content can be unlocked via in-app purchase: Days 2-3 for $2.99, Days 4-6 for $3.99 and Days 7-10 for $3.99.

Top Speed (Free on iOS, Android, BlackBerry, Windows Phone) – A drag racing game from T-Bull, Top Speed places players in the role of an underground street racer. Players can customize and upgrade almost 70 cars, and race in five different city districts, as well as an aircraft carrier. The game offers seven different race modes, including daily races, ranked races, boss battles and more (the game offers 20 bosses at launch). In each race, players concentrate on shifting when their meter reaches a green zone, and gamers can activate nitrous for an extra speed boost.

Run The Joint (Free on iOS) – A side-scrolling platformer from Naked Penguin Boy, Run The Joint challenges players to escape prison as both the prisoner and his attached ball and chain. In each level, both characters bounce across the screen automatically, and gamers tap on the right and left sides of the screen to cause the prisoner and the ball to jump, either simultaneously or one at a time. Levels become more challenging over time, and are filled with coins and collectible ice cream bars. As each level is filled with different layers of platforms (which contain these collectibles), players can strategically ‘separate’ their two characters, with one character on the upper layer of platforms, and the other below. If one character falls off of a platform, or hits an obstacle in the path, users can spend coins to revive their heroes and continue running. Players can also spend their coins on mystery crates potentially containing bonus coins or new playable characters, with these characters also available for direct in-app purchase using real money.
