Movie
Creed

Stallone’s back as Rocky Balboa in the hard-hitting new boxing movie Creed. He’s hung up his gloves and is now training a young fighter, Adonis ‘Donnie’ Creed - son of the legendary Apollo Creed.

Creed is one of the most emotional movies in the Rocky franchise, and has Rocky struggle with disease and face his own mortality before we get to the nail-biting big fight at the finale. Stallone was nominated for an Oscar for his role, and Michael B. Jordan also puts in a stunning performance as Donnie.

Buy Creed from the Google Play Store or iTunes.

eBook
Bloodline (Star Wars)

If you haven’t had your fill of Star Wars yet, here’s a great new eBook to get stuck into. Bloodline (Star Wars) is a novel that takes place six years before the events in Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens. It follows Princess Leia as she deals with different threats to the Republic, both internal and external.

The events in this book lead to the formation of the Resistance that appears in the latest Star Wars movie, so if you’re a fan you’ll definitely want to check it out.

Download Bloodline (Star Wars) from the Google Play Store today.

Music
Views by Drake

Does Drake know how to party or what?

No. No he doesn’t. Not if his new album ‘Views’ is anything to go by. Because ‘Views’ is a serious, downbeat album where Drake ponders on his failed relationships, and where it all went wrong for the multi-millionare rap superstar.

If all this sounds like it’s going to be a bit of a slog, don’t worry – it’s not. ‘Views’ is a great listen, full of carefully crafted beats and memorable hooks. Plus, it features guest appearances from the likes of Rihanna, who gamefully tries to shake Drake out of his self-inflicted misery. There’s also a song called ‘Child’s Play’, that sees Drake get into an argument at a place called The Cheesecake Factory with a girlfriend who then steals his Bugatti sports car to go shopping. You don’t get songs like that from Mumford & Sons.

Get down with Drake’s Views on Spotify.

Mobile game
Apestorm: Full Bananas

Apestorm: Full Bananas is a sideways scrolling shoot-em-up in the familiar style of retro arcade classics like R-Type and Scramble.

Gameplay is simple. You take control of an airship full of monkeys (don’t ask) and drop bombs on your enemies below. After a little practice you’ll find that your aircraft is surprisingly nimble, and in no time at all you’ll be laying waste to everything in sight.

Unlike most other sideways shoot-em-ups, it’s not enough to get to the end of the level unscathed. To progress in this game you’ll need to complete various challenges on each level – such as bombing certain types of buildings, or not destroying a single tree (tougher than it sounds).

Apestorm: Full Bananas looks fantastic too, with great graphics and a cool steampunk vibe. If you don’t have a problem siding with a gang of fugitive apes against the rest of humanity, download it from the Google Play Store (95p) or iTunes (£1.49).
