Creepy Platformer And Steam Favorite LIMBO Crawls Into The Play Store For $5

unnamedIn English, the word "limbo" can refer either to a party dancing game where participants walk under a horizontal bar or a theological concept referring to plane of existence between life and damnation. Take a look at the screenshot above. Which one do you think the game LIMBO is about?

Odd Bot Out Is An Adorable Little Platformer-Physics Puzzle Game Starring A Robot Reject

Physics games are thick on the ground on mobile platforms. And to be honest, Off Bot Out from developer Martin Magni doesn't seem to offer much in the way of new ideas... at least at the start. But building on the basic tools introduced in the first few levels and expanding on them with a surprisingly rich physics engine, the game gets much more complex very quickly.

It's a brick with a gun in it, in case that wasn't obvious.

There are just two controls in Gunbrick: swipe to rotate one Gunbrick-length left or right, or tap to fire the gun mounted on the bottom.

iOS Favorite RGB Express Is Out On The Play Store, Mixing Snake With Package Delivery

Imagine if someone remade the Snake game that you remember from your bomb-proof black and white Nokia phone into a puzzle title. It would look something like RGB Express, a low-key game about getting the right package to the right place. Draw out the path of your little truck, make sure it picks up at least one package and drops it off, and don't cross the trail it makes as it goes by.
