Everything in the game is controlled by your music. You’re able to pick any non-DRM track from your library. Then speed down the tube while trying to dodge the obstacles that are generated from it. You’ll know if you hit one because the music will fade out. The game includes three modes per song, multiple color themes, two control schemes, and achievements via Game Center.

Windy combines natural wind recordings with stunning artwork to help you sleep, relax, study, or meditate. It utilizes stereoscopic 3-D audio that’s optimized for headphones, so you can drift off into your own little world. The six natural wind recordings can be mixed with rain, river sounds, birds, and crickets. There’s also a whimsical story embedded within the app, allowing you to follow Windy on her journey to breathtaking locations.

2K Drive will put your driving skills to the test. Before you hit the streets, snap a picture of yourself so you can actually be behind the wheel in the game. You’re able to choose from only a handful of cars at the beginning of the game, but the better you drive and the more challenges you complete, the more coins you’ll earn to purchase new ones. New challenges are available on a daily basis, so you’ll never run out of opportunities to earn new cars, boosts, and upgrades. The game also includes fantastic console quality graphics and multiplayer racing.

2K DRIVE is available for free for a limited time. It has a 3-star rating with a total of 395 ratings.

You’re also equipped with short range attacks and tactical gear, but the path to victory won’t be easy. Adapt to your foes’ fighting styles, solve puzzles, and avoid traps to make it through the wide variety of levels and environments in order to save all of humanity.

A Few Days Left is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 21 ratings.
