While you were away on a hunting trip, the animals of the forest decided it would be in their best interest to steal your remaining collection of weapons. You must fight back and reclaim what’s rightfully yours by running, jumping, and shooting your way through various colorful environments. The animals won’t go down without a fight, so be prepared to dodge return fire. Your fallen enemies will drop chunks of meat, which can be used to pick up where you left off when you run out of lives. The game includes fantastic voxel art, five worlds to travel through, and epic boss battles.

Pixel Hunter is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 212 ratings.

Farkle+ ($1.99 → Free, 7.8 MB): Roll the dice and shoot for a high score in Farkle. It’s casual gaming at its best.

Farkle is a game of chance. The object of the game is to roll dice and receive a score for combinations. Only ones, fives, and triples are scored. You’re able to earn a bonus roll by using all six. After each roll your score can be banked and the scoring dice are removed. You get to keep rolling with the remaining dice if you choose, but be aware that a roll that doesn’t score you points means you lose all of the points accumulated for that round. It’s called being Farkled, and clearly it’s not something you want being done to you. The game includes a nice explanation of the rules, and single player and local multiplayer modes.

Farkle+ is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 1065 ratings.
