R-Type II ($1.99)

What’s it about? Jump in your ship and blast aliens in some classic 1989 shoot-’em-up action with R-Type II.

What’s cool? Side-scolling shooter R-Type II is one of the earlier examples of the modern shoot-’em-up. First released in 1989, players pilot a ship against a fleet of alien enemies, dodging tons of bullets and blasting their way through huge bosses. R-Type II contains six levels, each culminating in a boss fight, and the game has been reworked to support both touch-based and virtual control schemes. You can upgrade your ship over time with power-ups to make it more effective in battle, and the mobile version of R-Type II includes three different difficulty modes to give players more options in their alien-blasting mayhem.

Stop – Fun Categories Word Game (Free)

What’s it about? Stop challenges players face off against other players, each coming up with words as quickly as they can in given categories.

What’s cool? Word games are pretty good at taking a simple premise and making it into an addictive competition, and that’s what you’ll get when you fire up Stop. The game presents you with several categories, like “colors,” and a letter, like “B,” and challenges you to come up with as many words starting with the letter and falling into the category as possible. Stop is a multiplayer game in which players take turns coming up with words that start with a specific letter across several categories. You have as much time as you need to come up with words, but the faster, the better, because you’re able to hit a button to stop your turn at any time – thus challenging your opponent to meet or beat your time.

Who’s it for? Fans of word games and multiplayer challenges should put their skills to the test with Stop.

What’s it like? Take on other players in word games with Words with Friends and Letterpress.
