Whether you’re in the mood for fast-paced action or thoughtful, deliberate strategy, the Apple App Store has you covered this week with a killer selection of free games. I’ve always been a sucker for the Robot Unicorn Attack games, so a sequel is at the top of my list of things to download this weekend, but Super Senso — a turn-based strategy game in the vein of Advance Wars — is a close second.

War of Crown
Your Turn, Your Move, Your Destiny
The last Great War was a terrible struggle that reshaped the world.
The God of Destruction unleashed powerful Dark forces bent on plunging the world into chaos. All hope seemed lost.
In the end, it was through the strength of Men and the sacrifice of Arwyn the Hero-King that the Allied Races were able to drive out the Darkness.
Alas, the peace was short-lived as fighting broke out once more over the crown of the fallen Hero-King.
But little do they know that a Dark threat moves closer in the shadows…
