The interactive map lets you see temperatures in areas all over the world, watch storms as they change through satellite imagery, and even stream webcam footage from local areas to see what the weather is really like on the ground. The latest update to WunderMap makes it possible to send weather info to other users, as well as to combine multiple layers of weather information on the map for a better picture of what’s happening, among lots of other improvements.

What’s cool? Sugar has been banned in your city, and while the police are busy dealing with the big criminals and their new sugar empires, it’s up to you to help regular folks solve their cases as a private investigator. To do that, players have to gather clues, talk to witnesses, and scour evidence in a series of puzzles. To find what you need, you’ll engage in a careful matching game in which you’ll need to draw lines through matching tiles to get information from witnesses or find clues on the street – then you’ll need to apply what you’ve found to figuring out who your suspect is or where you can find a certain location. All the money you earn can go back into improving your office, buying power-ups and perks that can make you a more effective detective, and solving more cases.

Who’s it for? Fans of puzzlers and detective stories will find a lighthearted combination of both in Another Case Solved.

What’s cool? An old-school dungeon crawler, Coldfire Keep puts players in control of four heroes, each with different abilities, as they search through a grid-based 3-D dungeon. Each move takes players one square in a given direction, where they’ll face monsters and traps in turn-based combat. Searching the dungeon means keeping an eye out for useful loot and carefully dispatching enemies with strategic combat, and you’ll also come across puzzles to solve and secrets to discover as you work through the dungeon’s levels. Coldfire Keep includes more than 10 hours of gameplay and plenty of RPG action for old-school enthusiasts.
