After a busy week leading up to the holidays, the App Store has been relativity quiet since submissions were reopened to developers. The biggest title released in 2018 so far has been the popular Steam title, Antihero. The digital board game allows players to build a thieves' guild by looting the rich in the Victorian era. Players must recruit a gang of different unsavory characters to snatch up as many valuables as possible before their opponent. Antihero is available on the App Store for $3.99.

In Antihero you control a thieves' guild in attempt to outsmart your opponents in the Victorian underworld. You can bribe, blackmail and assassinate your way to the top while upgrading your guild to build the most powerful gang of thugs, assassins and other various unsavory characters.

Originally slated for October 31st, the second season of the Netflix original series Stranger Things launched a few days early, pitting it against the previous king of Halloween weekend, Jigsaw. The 8th film in the Saw series came in just a bit behind expectations at the box office, but it still managed to nab the number one spot of the weekend dethroning Tyler Perry's Boo 2! A Madea Halloween. It is unclear if the early launch of Stranger Things affected Jigsaw's return to theaters, or if the series just doesn't pack the same box office punch as it did in the past. While Saw and Stranger Things battled for eyeballs this weekend, the Strangers Things iOS game also received an update.
