Grim Fandango Remastered (Double Fine Productions, $9.99, available on iOS)
Old-school gamers will no doubt remember LucasArts’ original Grim Fandango, a humorous mystery revolving around travel agent Manny Calavera, and his bungled attempts to solve things. Good news, it’s back! Double Fine has remastered the game for mobile play, complete with fun graphics, challenging puzzles and plenty of laughs. It’s higher in cost than most mobile games, but there are no in-app purchases to worry about — and plenty of chuckles waiting. Welcome back, Grim!
The goats are back, and this time, they’re . . . dead. The follow-up to the popular Goat Simulator introduces zombies to the game, and it’s even crazier than ever. In GoatZ, players can experience a number of new scenarios with objects and undead folks alike, with a huge map to explore and plenty of survival techniques to master. Let’s also not forget there are additional goats to unlock with special powers — and that makes this worth a purchase in itself.
