Bloodstroke ($2.99)

What’s cool? Presented by action film director John Woo, Bloodstroke is a top-down shooter in which players take on the role of a woman with the code name Lotus, tasked with protecting her client from assassination by a slew of gangsters. Players have to fight to protect the client by using guns, blades, swords and other weapons to dispatch snipers, bikers and your standard gun-toting henchmen. Bloodstroke packs a beautiful brush stroke-inspired art style whose only color is red (hence the name), and the game also packs “arenas,” where you can hone your skills and earn money to spend on upgrading Lotus’s weapons.
