Square Enix Montreal’s mobile Tomb Raider spin-off, Lara Croft GO has been chosen by Apple as the best game to hit the App Store this year. The 2D platformer features the series’ iconic sense of adventure as well as a number of puzzles.
“From its legacy to its dedicated fan base, the Lara Croft franchise demanded and deserved the best GO adaptation we could possibly deliver,” said Partick Naud, studio head of Square Enix Montréal. “We worked tirelessly to make Lara Croft GO a truly special experience, and being chosen by Apple over so many other games is a humbling reflection of our team’s passion and hard work.”
In late November, Lara Croft GO received a free update called “The Shard of Life” that added an entire dungeon full of puzzles and challenges.
Lara Croft GO is currently available on iOS and Android.
