February came to a close and the first few app and game releases in March have been pretty big. This week we had companion apps to amazing games, big studios releasing new projects, and updates to popular apps and games. Fallout Shelter, Bethesda's successful mobile game got a nice update and Supercell released Clash Royale with a bang. Here are the notable apps and games this week:
Fallout Shelter gets Crafting
Bethesda's massively popular Fallout franchise made the jump to mobile in the form of Fallout Shelter and it was updated with crafting and new room support. You can now build a barbershop and there's more content in the form of weapons and outfits from Fallout 4 that can be crafted. A small but welcome addition is that the environment is reactive to the time of day to give you a proper simulation.
You've probably already played Clash of Clans or at least know about this game. Supercell brings their A-game with Clash Royale on iOS and Android, and you get real time multiplayer duels with large moustaches involved. Clash Royale is also one of the few (if not the only) games to get a full panel of banners on the App Store by Apple.
DRIVECLUB Companion App
DRIVECLUB, the best looking racing game on consoles available today, has been consistently updated with free content since launch and is now a great package. PlayStation Mobile just released a companion app for it to let you check challenge status and your standings against friends. The app is one of the better looking companion apps as well.
Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy for Android
This week Quantic Dream has a re-release of two of their biggest games on PlayStation 4, and their famous game Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy Remastered is finally out on Android after being PC and iOS only last year. This narrative experience has a full voiced script and supports controllers in its true uncut form. The touch controls take a bit of time to get used to and the game is a lot better if you have a proper controller, but you can certainly play it without one.
