Aftermath (iPhone, iPad)

Price: Free (was $0.99)

Who doesn’t like zombie games? Aftermath, a two-stick zombie shooter that puts you in a darkened city filled with deadly creatures, also features a dynamic flashlight system to illuminate the world around you. Oh, and a bunch of zombie-blasting as well. For free, this game is worth checking out.

Solomon’s Boneyard (iPhone)

Price: Free (was $0.99)

A prequel to Solomon’s Keep, Solomon’s Boneyard is an action role-playing game in which you play as one of seven wizards who’s working to stop the evil and powerful Solomon. Boneyard differs from Keep in that it’s more action-oriented.The game employs a two-stick shooter control method, with the right stick controlling magic spells. Less of an RPG and more of an arcade game, it tracks players’ high scores as they battle through its endless dungeon, but characters still level up and become more powerful as they climb higher through the game.Productivity
