app_liteIf you've found yourself hopelessly scouring the App Store looking for new things to try, each of these new lites are worth a look, assuming you don't already own the full versions of course.

Galactic Gunner Lite - (Galactic Gunner, 99¢) - A sampling of the Edis Brothers' latest game from Ezone.com, Galactic Gunner is an immersive rail shooter set in outer space. You follow the adventure of the Galactic Captain, his two wingmen, and protect the universe from the Trepidoids. Galactic Gunner has a huge fan following on our forums, and is worth checking out if you like Australian accents and/or cheesy science fiction based shooters. We enjoyed the game in our review, and the YouTube video alternate reality game the Edis brothers cooked up for its release (They even made one for the release of the lite.) also was a ton of fun.

TowerMadness Lite - (TowerMadness, 99¢) - The App Store certainly has no shortage of tower defense games, but each of the better ones bring something new to the table that makes them worth a look. The allure to TowerMadness is its open field gameplay combined with full 3D graphics complete with various camera angles. If you enjoyed Fieldrunners, and are looking for another open field tower defense game to fill the void between now and the release of geoDefense Swarm, give Tower Madness a try.

Moon Drop Lite - (Moon Drop, 99¢) - NimbleBit games seem to be universally adored on our forums, and Moon Drop is a welcome addition to the rest of their simple pick up and play catalog. In the game, you help populate the moon by guiding the lunar landers filled with colonits to the landing pad. Simple gameplay combined with scoring bonuses for landing groups at the same time or hitting the bullseye on the landing pad creates an enjoyable experience for both casual gamers and high score online leaderboard fanatics.

Parachute Panic Lite - (Parachute Panic, 99¢) - Another game based on saving people who are falling, Parachute Panic has a great hand drawn art style, fun music, and gameplay which gets remarkably challenging. Stick men fall from the sky, the only things you have control over are when they deploy their parachutes and gusts of wind to blow them around a little bit. Storm clouds, UFO's, and other obstacles stand in between the plane they jump out of and the boats they land on. Parachute Panic 1.2 is coming soon which will add online leaderboards, extra lives, and bonus objects.
