Arcade 12 September 2014
A sandbox platform game by indie studio Re-Logic, sometimes called the 2D version of the popular Minecraft. There is no set goal; your task is basically to shape the randomly-generated world around you. At first you only have a few basic tools, which allow you to dig and find resources, chop wood, and create simple structures. As the game progresses, due to the extensive crafting system, you discover better tools, allowing you to create advanced materials and to fight monsters. There are many possibilities in the game, and the only restriction is your own imagination. Terraria features a single player mode, but you can join forces with other players, thus gaining precious allies, who can help you with the more challenging tasks.
Lara Croft: Relic Run (WP)
Arcade 26 May 2015
A mobile arcade game from the endless runner subgenre, created by studio Simutronis. It allows you to become Lara Croft – the protagonist of the cult Tomb Raider series. Just like many similar titles, Lara Croft: Relic Run doesn’t contain a rich storyline – it just allows you to control the eponymous character during her numerous adventures in search of precious artifacts. In the game Lara automatically runs ahead and your task is to command her to jump, slide or change direction at the right moment with gestures. Apart from that, there are many combat sequences, both with common enemies and mighty bosses (like a Tyrannosaurus). Sometimes you can also show your acrobatic talent by running on the wall or doing some other evolutions in order to avoid various threats. The gameplay is also more attractive thanks to a simple character progression system, online leaderboards and well recreated atmosphere of the Tomb Raider series.

Arcade 26 March 2015
Star Wars Rebels: Recon Missions is a mobile and browser platform game based on the Star Wars Rebels animated TV series. The game takes place between the third and fourth episode of the movie saga. While the evil Empire hunts down what was left from the Jedi order, a Rebelion starts to grow. Gameplay in Star Wars Rebels: Recon Missions combines elements of platform games and economic strategies. During our adventures we play as a Jedi Knight and explore various locations, collect items, and fight with the encountered enemies. Being a member of the Order gives us access to a lightsaber and various force powers. With them, we will be able to deal not only with stormtroopers, but also walkers, fighters, and powerful bosses. We can come back to our base to upgrade and decorate it between the missions. It will give us not only bonuses during our adventures, but also help us discover hidden rooms where interesting information can be found. On July 28 2016, less than a year after launch, Disney Interactive Studios shut down the game's servers.
Pac-Man 256 (WP)
This arcade, endless-runner game brings a continuation to the long-standing, iconic Pac-Man series. Pac-Man 256 is a free-to-play title with microtransactions. The game was created by Hipster Whale - an external developer standing behind production of the popular game Crossy Road, based on similar mechanics. In Pac-Man 256, the player takes control of the titular creature running from a deadly glitch, which appeared first in the original Pac-Man game that came out back in 1980 (in the original game, the glitch attacked Pac-Man once the player had reached level 256). When exploring the endless maze, the protagonist eats yellow dots, not only avoiding the glitch chasing him, but also running from colorful ghosts the fans of the franchise are definitely familiar with. The player's goal here is to score as many points as possible before dying. Similar to Hipster Whale's previous game, Pac-Man 256 features a massive number of bonuses to be unlocked. The game is played from isometric view, following the pattern of the original Pac-Man, which was released 35 years earlier.
