Another week, another wave of new games on the App Store to roam – but fear not! We’re here to beat the noise and recommend the only three games you need this weekend.
And if you’re not interested in what we have for you below, take a look at All Time Best iPhone Games And the The best iPad games lists. There is sure to be something that will impress you. Read on to find out what’s new and exciting on the App Store this week.
Stranger Things: Puzzle Tales
It’s the second time Stranger Things fans have gotten so lucky that this adorable little warrior returns – this time as part of your Netflix subscription within Netflix games. Once on the “regular” app store with in-app purchases, but now part of Netflix’s growing game library, Puzzle Tales has been given a new lease on life and there are no claims to trying to take your hard-earned cash.
The setting is fun: The Stranger Things crew have to make their way through a passage that has been invaded by Demodogs to reach Eleven. To do this, players must match gems.
This isn’t your regular Candy Crush version, although there is an added depth to it as matching each gem color also increases each character’s special moves. This adds a really satisfying tactical depth to the play (without being overly complicated).
Presentation is really top notch. All the characters are drawn like Saturday morning cartoon heroes, and the sound is all spooky, with heavy combinations just like the show. Throw in new content based on the events of Season 4 and you’ll have another excellent addition to the Netflix catalog.
Basketball is miniaturized and transformed into a kind of action and strategy game in NBA Clash, a clever distillation of the sport that can be played with one thumb.
For a tight and intense sport like basketball, the controls are simple enough: just tap on a teammate to pass them to, swipe to drive looking to dunk or clear some space, or tap to shoot.
The on-screen effects sway and explode as the treble and error indicators sink in. It’s fun over the top, just like the outrageous NBA Jam dips into the past.
Defense is more difficult. We sometimes found ourselves frantically scrolling and swiping over and over to initiate a heist or block, with mixed success. Perhaps those with a cooler head would be better here.
Loyal fans will love getting into the details of building custom team decks, too. Every player in the game is from the real NBA and has strengths and weaknesses that contribute to your team’s overall stats. There are special moves to consider as well, which depends on the type of player on your team. So, a knockout for basketball fans.
The emergence of Second Dinner has quickly become one of our favorite games, and millions of gamers seem to agree with it. It has been hanging at the top of the App Store charts since its launch two weeks ago.
We’ve personally experienced some difficulties logging in every now and then – for a brief panic-filled moment it looked like our account had expired – but apart from that, we think Marvel Snap is indeed Game of the Year competitor on any platform. Seriously, that’s good.
We’re already in Season 2 of the content, too, well-timed for the release of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. You won’t see any of the cast from the MCU here. It’s all comic book art right now, but it’s great to see Black Panther, Okoye, and the gang get into a fight.
To unlock “Warriors of Wakanda” content, you’ll need to purchase a Battle Pass, but that’s a meager $9.99 and worth seeing King T’Challa do his thing.

If you have time between Marvel Snap sessions (damn you, Devil Dinosaur!) to check out more great games, don’t forget that there are plenty of games to play if you have an Apple Arcade or an existing Netflix subscription.
