For some reason, Apple decided to unleash a massive number of new games into the App Store over the past 24 hours. The releases keep coming, with many games we've been talking about for some time. We've already covered a number of them, but here are a few more that may be of interest.

We will come back to the best over time, but if you've been particularly awaiting any of these, here's your chance. Each game title is linked to the App Store, and forum discussion threads area also linked to provide you with early impressions.


Above & Beyond Air Combat ($2.99) - Joshua Rosen's SciFly followup arial shooter with 60 islands to explore and customizable aircraft. Join the discussion thread.


Aera ($2.99) - And impressive flight game that is set in a 3D world, but controls closer to a sidescroller as horizontal movement is controlled automatically. Join the discussion thread.



Faceoff ($0.99) is a third person free roaming shooter that we previewed in August. Join the discussion thread.



Castle Warriors ($0.99) - a nice looking real time strategy game from GameResort. Join the discussion thread.


And there's more...

  • Adams Immersive

    These all look great. I've been awaiting Aera in particular. But I could never remember the name of it...

    The problem with Air combat, like most air combat games is that you end up shooting at targets the size of a single pixel 90% of the time while looking at the ass of your plane.

    Bill: "check out the awesome graphics on this flying game"
    Ted: "it's a single pixel"
    Bill: "But it's an AWESOME single pixel. I mean look at that pixel! It's AWESOME!"

    Call it "kill the zoomy dot flying thing game" and you've got a more accurate title.

      I definitely see what your saying, and that's something we tried to work on with A&B. A&B's combat is actually much more up close than most flying games. There's certainly missiles in the game if you want them, but most of the game is played with machine guns and laser cannons that are more for up close combat.

      Thanks for your feedback!

    Bought above and beyond today. The game is not too bad but it realy did not live up to the praises it got from some reviewers. Especially the graphics do not look very nice. Could be much better if done by a pro!

    Oh and the sountrack in above and beyond... is just awful. How many seconds did you spend on ripping some poor riffs and then relentlessly throwing them at our ears!
