August was witness to some hot temperatures, and some hot new App Store games. It's called the dog days of summer, but cats really stood out in August with Cat Quest, Super Phantom Cat 2, and Cat Bird. Here's a look at the best App Store games of August 2017 highlighted by an open world RPG adventure, a deluxe turn based dungeon crawler, and a retro inspired platformer sequel.
A beautifully rendered turn based RPG that challenges you with enemies as well as fractured psyche.
A different type of turn based RPG that requires you to lead a team of flawed heroes. There are the usual outlandish enemies, but Darkest Dungeon incorporates survival tactics so that you deal with stress, famine, disease, and more. Paranoia, masochism, fear, irrationality, and other mindsets will add quirks to the strategic gameplay.
A top down shooter with dual stick controls, tactical combat, and episodic storyline.
Get ready for real time top down shooter action infused with strategy. There's a dual stick shooter set up, but that doesn't mean it's just a run and gun challenge. Instead, you can and should use tactical combat and stealth to gain the advantage on various enemies in the episodic campaign.
Play as a pineapple, cupcake, hot dog, noodles, and more with crazy controls for walking.
A game like QWOP, I Am Bread, Octodad, Steppy Pants, and similar with crazy controls to move the main character. There's no precision, and instead you're just try to move forward in any form you can. Silly Walks introduces household items as the main characters.
A new Little Red Riding Hood themed puzzle challenge.
A block sliding puzzle game with a Little Red Riding Hood theme. Slide to send red through the level to try to collect cakes to bring to grandma. As you advance, the big bad wold is introduced among other enemies that move as you slide.
