This Wednesday's list of game releases is particularly crazy. The good news is, two of these games are free, so you might as well give them a try. Here's a list of things that just popped up on the App Store that we think are worth a look:
Baseball Superstars® 2011 Pro, $0.99 [ Forum Thread ] -- We has a blast with both Baseball Superstars 2009 and 2010, and expect 2011 to be just as awesome. Great arcade style baseball gameplay is paired with light RPG elements which will make any fan of filling experience bars wonder where their entire day went.
Zombie Crisis 3D, $4.99 [ Forum Thread ] -- A cool looking rails shooter that puts players in charge of slaughtering countless zombies by tapping on them. Throughout 21 levels you'll encounter 4 different bosses and 3 types of weapons.
Lil' Pirates, Free [ Forum Thread ] -- IUGO and Capcom teamed up to create this pirate-themed freemium game. You'll be able to tweak out your ship, recruit crew members, equip them however you'd like, then engage in ship to ship battles. IUGO and Capcom have had a track record of making some pretty cool games, making Lil' Pirates totally worth checking out.
CAPCOM ARCADE, Free [ Forum Thread ] -- Street Fighter II, Ghouls ‘n Ghosts, 1942 and Commando are all packed in this freemium emulator. You can either play them using tokens which will allow you to play three times a day for free. Alternatively, you can buy additional tokens for more plays, or the games outright for additional plays.
Necronomicon, $0.99 [ Forum Thread ] -- Based on the works of H.P. Lovecraft, Necronomicon is part collectable card game, part roleplaying game, and part board game. Judging by the trailer, Necronomicon will likely greatly entice any fan of Cthulhu Mythos.
Animeals, $0.99 [ Forum Thread ] -- Physics games are almost always a lot of fun on the iPhone, and Floop seems to be no exception. In the game, using a variety of different tools you blast acorns in to the mouthes of hungry squirrels (and other animals), who oddly enough just stand there and expect to be fed.
Paperboy: Special Delivery, $0.99 [ Forum Thread ] -- I'm not really sure what to think about this one. Glu has taken the classic game of Paperboy and added a story mode, new graphics, new gameplay, and some kind of upgrade system that will allow you to use special skills while out delivering papers.
We're going to be powering through all of these games, producing as many reviews as possible. If you can't wait until then, swing by any of the forum threads where people are already posting their impressions on each of the respective titles.
