Dragon Academy developer Team Chaos has announced the launch of its newest game on iOS: Dragon Raiders. The game’s title characters, the Dragon Raiders, are responsible for the safety of the people of Landslandia. An army of evil “Wobblins” is on the hunt for Dark Shards, which will be used to summon an even greater threat, so gamers will need to stop them before it happens.
The Dragon Raiders are a group of three characters, Melty, Pokey and Frosty. Players control these dragons in level-based gameplay, which sees users flying around obstacles while collecting experience points, runes and coins.
Torn Screen Entertainment has released its latest mobile game with a personal finance twist, Capital City: Escape from Supercorp. The digital board game allows users to become a mogul in a virtual town, purchasing everything from beauty parlors and burger shops to the fancy house on the corner.

With the word ‘selfie’ recently given a place in the Merriam-Webster dictionary, app developer William Wallace is encouraging users to embrace the trend of taking pictures of oneself with Selfie-A-Day on iOS (not that many need much encouraging).
The daily photo diary app allows users to take a selfie each day, and then turns them into a movie for reliving moments time and time again. The photo journal can be used to simply document one’s life, or as a way to monitor hair growth (say, during no-shave November), the growth of a pet or child, exercise progress and much more.
Popular weatherman Al Roker has launched his other weather-themed game on iOS devices. Co-created by Kate Linendoll, a technology contributor to The TODAY show, “Al’s Weather Rokies” sees players helping Al Roker wake up before he oversleeps.

With Roker’s passion for weather, gamers will interact with weather-themed items to wake the TV personality up before it’s too late.
