New iPad Games and Apps of the Week: Lara Croft GO

Lara Croft GO

Apple has sent out invitations for its 2015 iPhone keynote. The media event is scheduled to be held at 10 a.m. PDT on Wednesday, September 9th at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco, CA. Apple fans can watch the live stream at using their iPad, iPhone, iPod touch or Mac.

In gaming news... The Rebuild 3 mobile release has been delayed agian. Developer Sarah Northway did not give a specific release date since she keeps missing them, but said she is "aiming for September 3rd". I've been playing the beta and I'm really enjoying the game. It is basically an updated version of the original with a ton of new features and better graphics.

Two big universal releases I want to mention this week: Lara Croft GO and The Walking Dead: Road to Survival. Lara Croft GO is a turn-based puzzle game starring everyone's favorite Tomb Raider star. The game features 75 puzzles split into 5 chapters with lots of ancient relics to find and outfits to unlock. It's available on the App Store for $4.99.

The Walking Dead: Road to Survival is free-to-play adventure / building title like The Simpsons: Tapped Out where you can build you own team of survivors and collect your favorite characters from the television show.

Here are the rest of this week's iPad releases for 08/23/15 to 08/29/15. Don't forget to check out our App Store recap every Saturday for all the weekly releases, jailbreak tweaks, App Store news and important app updates.
