The best new smartphone apps launched this week

Thanks to the support of our community, we start this decisive month of April with a list of the five best mobile apps that have just been released in the last seven days. We hope that this little list full of very entertaining games will help you take your mind off things and clear your head.

GRIS

This game is eagerly awaited by connoisseurs of this type of mysterious universe. It is not only a very original proposition from a visual point of view (a picturesque world, delicate visuals and elaborate animations punctuated by an original soundtrack) but also a universe to be discovered. In this game, you will follow an optimistic young girl, but haunted by a painful experience that has shaken her life. Playing on a range of emotions that I find interesting, GRIS immerses you in a story where the heroine sees her world in a completely different light and discovers unsuspected paths that her emerging abilities allow her to explore. It's difficult to describe because it's more of an experience than a game for smartphones, but GRIS proves that apps can offer something both new and original to discover.

Johnny Bonasera 4

We move to a total change of scenery with this powerful adventure game. Johnny Bonasera 4 offers a classic space adventure game with hilarious dialogues. You will have to fight to save Johnny's mother and the rest of the abducted humans, including Capitán Wachimolete, forced to join the alien army after inserting a probe that controls his will. This game opts for 2D graphics developed in a cartoon style in HD that helps to create a nice atmosphere that can be found especially in the humor of the colorful characters. It's a game that relaxes you.

Rogue Grinders: Roguelike Dungeon RPG

Fans of retro games and roguelike role-playing games should be thrilled with Rogue Grinders: Roguelike Dungeon RPG. Continuing the classic storyline of this type of game, you will guide your hero through dungeons, unlock new heroes, defeat monsters and collect powerful weapons. This application offers a good retro feel reminiscent of console games from 20 years ago, where you'll have to fight monsters, use consumables and upgrade your weapons to get further in the perilous dungeons. All in all, it's an adventure story to enjoy online or offline!

Missile Command: Recharged

When I first played this game, I immediately had a kind of "déjà vu". Missile Command: Recharged is indeed a mobile version of the mythical arcade game of the same name. Connoisseurs and other nostalgic (but not that nostalgic) gamers will enjoy playing on their mobile phones this fast-paced arcade-style action game where players must defend their bases by shooting at the endless rain of missiles falling from the sky. You'll then be able to launch counter-missiles to protect your base and aim for power-ups to take over at critical moments. A little extra trick: use the new augmented reality feature to project your game onto a virtual arcade terminal and take your missile destruction to the next level!

Spotify Kids

The streaming music giant has now made its application available in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Europe. If you have a family subscription, you won't have to pay anything to use the Spotify Kids app. This app offers filters for different age categories, from 0-6 years old for example, and the selection includes songs and lullabies, but also soundtracks from movies and cartoons of course. All of this is accessible directly from a search bar or can be discovered in playlists put together by the Spotify teams, with the option to save your favorite tracks. Educational content and even audiobooks and evening stories are also available.
