Fans of the popular Space Miner: Space Ore Bust should check out Space Miner Blast, which heads up today’s Fresh Games list and is free for a limited time. Meanwhile, iPad owners should check out the phenomenal Spider-Man: Total Mayhem at a discount. Read more below and get your spider sense tingling.
Space Miner Blast (iPhone) Free
A spin-off of Space Miner: Space Ore Bust, Space Miner Blast simplifies the RPG/space shooter down to its base elements -- flying around in a ship, shooting asteroids and collecting items. Built with some interesting physics controls, you steer your ship with one stick and fire its thrusters with one button, while blasting away the ships guns with another. Your job is to track down asteroids and blow them apart for the ore inside, and use the money you earn to upgrade your ship.
Space Miner includes integration with Game Center for achievements and leaderboard support, and while the base app is free, you can also buy up to three fully-upgraded alternate ships for 99 cents each, or spend $1.99 and get all of them. Any purchase you make also strips the ads from the app as well.
MMA Pro Fighter (iPhone) Free
Here’s another spin-off -- this one’s an iPhone version of the Facebook app of the same name, which lets you cultivate a mixed martial arts fighter and battle other players using a ton of different moves.
You can purchase a full version of the app, and can customize your fighter and increase his training in order to win more fights. The app includes leaderboards, additional martial arts styles, and Facebook integration so you can battle your friends and humiliate them in your newsfeed.
Spider-Man: Total Mayhem HD (iPad) $6.99
Based on the Ultimate Spider-Man comics, Total Mayhem uses virtual controls to let players battle through several different levels with beat-em-up style combat. You’ll have access to 20 different combo moves with all of Spider-Man’s standard abilities like wall-crawling and web-slinging. Through the course of the game, you’ll fight through 12 different levels and take on six iconic Spider-Man villains.
