Top 5 Apps to Check Out This Week: Zen Studio, Mini Metro, and More

Summer is over and fall is here. That means you’re going to have to endure cold weather, rainy afternoons, and boring nights at home. Fortunately, this selection of apps will keep you entertained all year long.

Whether you want to start cooking lunch with a spiffy new app or just relax, order food, and play a good game, these apps are here to save the day. Take a look at a few of the selections below to make sure you can enjoy this fall.

Shadow Bug

Being a superhero would be pretty cool. But how much cooler does being an super powerful ninja sound? With Shadow Bug, you’re the ninja, and you have an important mission: save your home forest from the evil factory by slicing monsters to pieces. Check out the trailer below, and download Shadow Bug from the App Store/Google Play ($3.99).

Zen Studio

Kids can be pretty restless on cold, fall days. Fortunately, Zen Studio may help you keep them occupied with a creative activity designed for children: a simple, geometric finger painting app that lets them produce artistic creations. Zen Studio also has a tutorial mode instructing children how to create specific creatures and characters. Download Zen Studio for free from the App Store/Google Play.

Mini Metro

Have you put your planning skills to the test recently? Now you can with a simple but challenging game. Mini Metro is about designing a subway map for a growing city. Although drawing a line between stations to start the trains running may sound easy, believe me, it isn’t. It requires careful planning. The route has to be efficient, and you have limited resources. Test your skills with eleven real-world cities, and compete against the world in Daily Challenges. Download Mini Metro from the App Store/Google Play ($4.99).

Halloween Whack-a-Zombie

With Halloween just around the corner, a Halloween-themed game was a necessity. Halloween Whack a Zombie asks you to use your special Whacka hammer to club zombies as fast as possible. Keep in mind you are up against the clock, and time is running out. Challenge your friends and family to beat your Zombie-whacking skills. Download Halloween Whack a Zombie from the App Store – it’s free!


My Little Pony: Puzzle Party

It’s show time! The puzzle challenge begins with My Little Pony: Puzzle Party, where you will meet some cute pony friends who will accompany you through the land of Equestria. If puzzle apps are your favorite way to relax, just download the game, solve them and unlock power-ups. But before you allow your child to play this game, you might want to disable in-app purchases. Download My Little Pony: Puzzle Party from the App Store / Google Play – it’s free!
