New Apple App Store Games #5


– [Announcer] Before this
video officially starts, I wanted to make a call to action to help the animals of my
down-under country, Australia. Right now, areas of Australia are going through devastating bush fires, causing all kinds of havoc. I’ve set up a GoFundMe page to help the animals who are suffering. If you’re interested, share the GoFundMe link in
the description or this video, and donate if you are able. All the revenue from this video will also go to the GoFundMe page, and the total donations will go directly to WIRES Australian Wildlife
Rescue Organization. Anyway, thank you for your support. Back to the video. 2020 has begun, and I’m
back with my next episode of New App Store Games episode five. This week includes five games
from the 1st to 10th January. And at the end of the
video, I’ll also update you on five huge upcoming App Store releases coming over the next few weeks and months. Number one we have Swag and Sorcery. Originally released on PC in mid 2019, in early January this streamlined RPG game was published to the
App Store by tinyBuild. Originally it was
developed by Uroboros Games and produced by Lazy Bear Games, the people behind Punch
Club and Graveyard Keeper. Swag and sorcery involves light building, managing heroes and then sending them out to defeat monsters and collect loot. This App Store version
supports cross-save support between PC, iOS and iPadOS,
which is really cool. The game features a
lot of grinding though. You’ll often do the
same thing over and over and over again, to achieve a set goal. I didn’t mind this personally, I found the gameplay addicting, and the art style is really pretty. That said, the game could benefit from more gameplay elements, and cost of items and
leveling could be cheaper. Unfortunately, right now, the game doesn’t fit the
aspect ratio on 2018 iPad Pros, which is a shame. Anyway, Swag and Sorcery goes for $6.99 USD on the App Store. Number two is The White Door. I’ve been following this
game since early 2019, and I’m super excited
that it’s finally out now. It’s made by the Netherlands
company, Rusty Lake, the people behind the Cube Escape series and other praised point
& click adventures. The White Door is still a
point & click adventure, but it’s different with a
new black and white style and a split-screen gameplay mechanic. The story shows Robert Hill, a man suffering from severe memory loss. He wakes up in a mental health facility, and players must help him to follow the facility’s daily
routines, explore his dreams and help him to recover his lost memories. The only problem with
the game is the length. You can finish it in
around, maybe three hours. But I found myself enjoying
every moment of the story here. Dear Rust Lake, please update the game to support the 2018 iPad
Pros. That would be great. The White Door costs $2.99
USD on the App Store. – [Character] I tried to touch her hand but she pulled away. And then she was gone. – [Announcer] Number three
we have Doomsday Vault. Here we a new Apple Arcade
puzzle-adventure experience by the New Zealand company Flightless, the creators of Element. In Doomsday Vault the Earth’s
climate has collapsed, and it’s up to you to collect
the remaining plant life and then them back to your vault for regrowth and safe keeping. You’ll traverse around in a robot suit, and can use different tools and abilities. I really like the game’s 3D environments, especially the post-climate backdrops. I would’ve loved if you could
rotate the camera though. I feel as though this would’ve allowed for some more cool puzzle elements. What I didn’t expect though, was to learn about different crops, from coconut palms, bananas,
cosmos, neem, maize and so on. It was super cool and I
really appreciate that. Also, because of what’s
happening on this earth, the game just can teach you about the benefits of looking after our earth. Doomsday Vault is available to download if you’re subscribed to Apple Arcade. This means it’s playable across iPhone, iPad, Apple TV and Mac. It also supports controllers
and keyboards on an iPad. Number four we have
Cecconoid, or Keccenoid? I just don’t know how to pronounce it. Here we have a new
twin-stick-shooter game. It’s hard, very hard. And you know what? I love it. When you launch the game, you’ll notice it contains two games. First is Cecconoid or
Kecconoid, how do you say it, where you’ll pilot your
ship through stages, and you can shoot at different enemies. Then the second game, Eugatron, Googatron, this one involves a more arcade tone. It’s also less difficult
than the other mode, but it’s still really really hard. The game uses a black and white style, and is heavily inspired by
8-bit games from the past. It was developed by Triple-Eh? and published to the App Store by Thalamus Digital Publishing. The game costs $1.99 USD on the App Store, and supports controllers
and keyboards on an iPads. Number five is No Way Home. No Way Home is a charming space shooter, a part of Apple Arcade. It starts out where a woman is
stranded in a strange galaxy and is looking for a way home to Earth. As you explore, you’ll fight other ships, and will have to learn how to master all their different play styles. You can do this by upgrading your blaster, utilizing your grappling hook, and managing you robot companion. The robot friend reminds me of Claptrap from the Borderlands series, from his robotic voice and even his humor. I like how the game
deals with tutorials too, making it into a comedic joke, I suppose, to reduce the boredom, instead of going, press
here and press here, and then press here too. I like that. The game is brought to you by the Australian team, SMG Studio. They previously brought you Death Squared, Thumb Drift and One More Line. No Way Home is available to download if you’re subscribed to Apple Arcade. It also supports controllers. – [Cho] Your ship exploded. All passengers and crew are likely dead. You’re in a crummy safety
pod and you’re all alone. – [Matey] Ahoy! I’m your mechanical safety
pod assistant, Matey. – [Cho] My what? – And here are some of
those bonus upcoming games. Pascals Wager is releasing
in only a few days, the 16th January. It’s a fantasy action
RPG by Giant Network. It was shown running on the iPhone 11 at the Apple Special Event in
2019, you may remember this. You can pre-order it right now for $6.99 USD on the App Store, and it will automatically
download on release day. I’ll be doing a review
of this game next week, so keep a lookout for that one. – As we trail the owl, we see the benefits of
post-processing effects, including anti-aliasing and bloom, which are only possible with
the GPU of the new iPhone. – [Announcer] Maze Machina
is coming to the App Store on the 15th of January. It is a turn-based swiping puzzler that combines a tile-based item system. This allows for endless
combinations of tactical attack, defense and utility moves
on a small 4×4 grid. I’d say it will be a paid game, but a price has not been revealed yet. MADFINGER Games have revealed
that Shadowgun War Games is dropping on the 16th February. It’s the follow-up game
to Shadowgun Legends. It will feature more advanced graphics, more weapons, and
five-versus-five battles. It’s going to be free-to-play,
without pay-to-win mechanics. You can pre-order it on
the App Store right now and it will automatically
download when it’s released. – Shadowgun War Games takes place 40 years before the events
of Shadowgun Legends. It’s the age of prosperity,
the golden age of humanity, where everything is fine, everyone’s happy and everyone’s bored. When everyone’s happy,
nobody is entertained. So that’s why War Games was created, the gladiatorial combat
sport of the future. – [Announcer] Overdrive
City is an upcoming car simulation building-type
game by Gameloft. The one is available right
now on the App Store in beta, to people in Canada and
select other countries. There is no concrete release
date for the full version, but it’s said to come sometime in 2020. It will be free-to-play. Fans of Gameloft love love racing games, so I’m sure this one is
gonna do really well. Recently Feral Interactive
stated on Twitter that their real-time strategy game, Company of Heroes for iPad has been delayed until
some time in early 2020. They said and I quote, “The demands of bringing
it to a smaller screen “have outpaced our best efforts. “However, it’s looking great on iPad, “and is in the final
stages of development. “We will have an update on
it early in the new year.” This will be a paid game, but
no price has been announced. What mobile games have you
been playing so far in 2020? What other game releases are you looking forward to this year? Let’s talk about all of
this in the comments. Leaving a like is always helpful to make sure more people see this video. If you’re new to the channel, subscribe and turn on notifications, as this is the best place to find new Apple App Store releases. Anyway, thanks for watching.
