Shades: A Simple Puzzle Game ($1.99 → Free, 33.0 MB): Combine blocks to create and remove different shades in this unique puzzle game. It’s for casual gamers who want a zen-like puzzle experience.

We love games like Shades. It’s simple on the surface, but rather difficult once you get going. The idea is to drag the falling blocks into position in order to create rows of the same color, which will remove them from the board. Things really get interesting when you stack blocks of the same color, as they will get darker in shade. This gameplay element creates some sticky situations, but also allows you to create cascading combos. Shades includes four color schemes to choose from.

Shades: A Simple Puzzle Game is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 7088 ratings.

Compass by iVogel ($0.99 → Free, 11.9 MB): Always know where you’re going with this stylish navigation app. It’s the perfect app for those who enjoy the great outdoors.

This isn’t just your everyday compass. Sure, it can show your orientation in real-time, but it also includes coordinates, course, speed, altitude, and weather data all on the same screen. Location data can be copied to your clipboard and used in other apps. Compass also includes imperial and metric support, true and magnetic North, Google Maps integration, and two themes to choose from.

Compass by iVogel is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 21 ratings.
