AppUnwrapper’s Favorite iOS Games of 2016

This is only the second year I'm listing my Games of the Year, and 2016 was an incredibly strong one for iOS games.

‘Puzzlepops! Trick or Treat’ Serves Up Both Tricks and Treats This Thursday

Puzzlepops! Trick or Treat By: Layton Hawkes Update: The game is now out! The title of Layton Hawkes' latest puzzle game might be slightly misleading, as Puzzlepops!

It features all types of sweets -- including candy corn, candy bats, wax vampire lips, and eyeball jawbreakers -- and is often quite tricky. Even though I completed all of the first game, many of the Read more [...]
