New iPad Games and Apps of the Week: Zombie goats and more


Coffee Stain Studios has released GoatZ to the Apple App Store. GoatZ is an expansion for Goat Simulator on Steam, but it has been released as a standalone app for iOS and Android. The game combines two of the most popular genres in gaming -- zombies and goat simulations. Coffee Stain describes it as the possibly their dumbest creation with mandatory crafting and lots of bugs. GoatZ is available for $4.99. Goat Simulator has also been reduced to $1.99 on the App Store.

GoatZ Features

  • Mandatory crafting system - Craft anything in the world, as long as it’s one of the half dozen weapons in the game
  • Zombies, zombies everywhere because this is a zombie game, remember?
  • A pretty big map with some stuff on it
  • Fully fledged survival mode where you have to eat every five minutes to survive, just like your grandmother
  • Turn humans into Zombies and loot some crates. Just like your grandmother
  • Also a casual mode for people who don’t like feeding their goat every five minutes
  • Tons of new unlockable goats with special powers - shrink people’s heads, hang glide, wreak havoc, spit and be a goat. For real

Here are the rest of this week's most noteworthy iPad app releases for 05/03/15 to 05/09/15. Apple's Free App of the Week is Toca Nature. The game will be free on the Apple App Store until 05/14/15. Also don't forget to check out our App Store recap every Saturday for all the weekly universal releases, jailbreak tweaks, App Store news and important app updates.

Legend of Grimrock ($4.99)

Legend of Grimrock

"Legend of Grimrock is a dungeon crawling role playing game with an oldschool heart but a modern execution. A group of prisoners are sentenced to certain death by exiling them to the secluded Mount Grimrock for vile crimes they may or may not have committed. Unbeknownst to their captors, the mountain is riddled with ancient tunnels, dungeons and tombs built by crumbled civilizations long perished now. If they ever wish to see daylight again and reclaim their freedom the ragtag group of prisoners must form a team and descend through the mountain, level by level."

"The game brings back the oldschool challenge with highly tactical real-time combat and grid-based movement, devious hidden switches and secrets as well as deadly traps and horrible monsters. Legend of Grimrock puts an emphasis on puzzles and exploration and the wits and perception of the player are more important tools than even the sharpest of swords could be. And if you are a hardened dungeon crawling veteran and you crave an extra challenge, you can arm yourself with a stack of grid paper and turn on the Oldschool Mode which disables the luxury of the automap! Are you ready to venture forth and unravel the mysteries of Mount Grimrock?"

******* KEY FEATURES *******
