John knows far too much to be left alive, but he won’t go down without a fight. You get to take control of John as he runs along through dangerous environments fighting back against his captors. You’re able to jump up and down by sliding your finger vertically, and you can attack with your primary weapon with a tap. A secondary weapon is also available, which can be utilized with a right finger swipe. Make sure to collect as many coins as possible along your journey to upgrade your weapons.

Lub vs Dub ($0.99 → Free, 18.7 MB): A two-player game with a lot of heart.

Grab a friend and take your places on each side of the screen. Then start running across the central ECG line to collect hearts and race by your opponent. You and your opponent are both able to leap over obstacles and flip to the other side of the line via your own personal controls. You’re also able to gather power-ups to boost ahead of or hinder your opponent. A single-player mode is available so you can work on your technique.

Striding Bird – An Interactive Tale for kids, families and educators ($1.99 → Free, 44.1 MB): An interactive story about a young bird trying to find his way in the world.

Striding Bird wanted nothing more than to be like his four-legged friends and not have to worry about living high up in the trees. But he soon realizes that no matter where he is and what he does, he must make the most of what he has. The original story includes dynamic interactive items on every page, fun animations, charming narration, original music and sound effects, and highlighted text so your child can follow along.

Gravity Blocks X – The Last Rotation ($0.99 → Free, 57.1 MB): Unblock your mind in this challenging sliding puzzle game.

Blockham City has become shrouded in darkness, and only the block heroes can save it by completing puzzling missions. The basic goal of the game is to get your block from the starting point to the end target by sliding it all over the screen. The usual sliding puzzle game rules apply, where you can’t simply slide pass your end target; you must stop on top of it. But as you progress through the game, new elements will be added to complicate things. Hopefully you’re up for the challenge. The game includes six modes, over 180 levels, and achievements and leaderboards via Game Center.

Gravity Blocks X – The Last Rotation is available for free today only (08/20). It has a 4-star rating with a total of 10 ratings.

Little Boat River Rush ($1.99 → Free, 41.3 MB): Go on a high speed river ride in this arcade game.

You must guide your little boat down the river using two on-screen directional buttons. Try to avoid ramming into the river banks while collecting coins so you can upgrade your boat. Along the way you’ll also come across some crazy obstacles and massive ramps, so be prepared for anything! The game includes more than 100 missions, over 300 maps, iCade and Bladepad support, and leaderboards via Game Center.

Little Boat River Rush is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 22 ratings.
