Welcome to Wednesday, everyone. Today we have a solid amount of sales, and while Wednesdays can be slow, I still have a few standouts to share with everyone. First up is My Sheet Music, a solid app for practicing sight-reading of scanned sheet music. Next, I have Runic Curse, an enjoyable Metroidvania game. Last but not least is Cook, Serve, Delicious, a competent restaurant sim that offers the full PC experience on mobile. As always, I've highlighted all of the interesting titles in bold green text in order to make discovery easier.
