Jim Vessella, Simon Armstrong and Kyle Van Meurs created SuperMoon Games. Based in San Francisco, CA, they created their game studio earlier this year, "...with the goal of creating delicious, bite-sized games that could be enjoyed by both veteran gamers and an eager generation of new players." These gentlemen were so passionate about gaming, that they chose to leave corporate America to do their own thing. That means, this first game is completely self-funded. It is their hope that it will be successful enough for them to continue making games. Galaxy Dash: Race to Outer Run is a roller coaster of an endless runner that is bold, beautiful and exciting to play. If their goal was to create delicious, bite-sized games, then this one is a big snack that won't leave you hungry.
Kiloo Games will be unleashing their latest project, Smash Champs, upon the gaming community in October. Based in Denmark, Kiloo Games has created the wildly popular Subway Surfers, Frisbee Forever, Frisbee Forever 2 and Bullet Time HD, which unfortunately, is only on iOS. Subway Surfers continues to be beloved by many, and continues to be updated by Kiloo with new free game content. This is impressive considering how long the game has been out. With Smash Champs, Kiloo is moving away from the endless runner genre, but based on the little we have seen, they will continue their successful track record.
Just because the week is over doesn't mean there aren't great games to be discovered. If you are in a rush and only have a few moments to get some gaming in this weekend, you should try a game called The Tower. The game was created by AYA Games and is currently published by Ketchapp Mobile Game Studio based in Italy. The premise of the game is uncomplicated. Build your tower by stacking the moving pieces on top of one another. The game is entertaining and remarkably elegant, because of the level of detail put into the game and its crisp and clean graphics.

A new endless running game has arrived onto Android called R.G.B. from Invictus Games. This isn't your standard endless runner though as it features game mechanics similar to that of Guitar Hero. You have three rows, each with their own little character running on them. Each row can have one of three colors appear on itl and when a color comes up to one of your characters, you have to tap there on the screen to swap the correctly colored character to that row.
Wayward Souls is a dungeon crawler/RPG by Noodlecake Studios. It has a few interesting features that are noteworthy. It has a bit of a rogue -like influence as the game uses "procedurally generated random levels", or in other words its levels are randomly generated.
