Hey it's Wednesday again which means we're one week closer to seeing just how bad this season of The Office is going to be without Steve Carell. I remain hopefully optimistic, but we'll have to wait and see. Need something to keep you occupied until then? Well, thankfully, a whole heap of game developers decided to release games tonight. This works like every other week, and all of these games will appear for download in the US App Store at 11:00 PM Eastern, and potentially much earlier than that if you're a region to the east of North America.

Here's what you've got to look forward to:

Cowboy Guns, 99¢ / Lite / Universal HD - Forum Thread - This dual stick shooter differentiates itself from the past by being set in the wild west with an in-depth story-driven single player campaign. Buyer beware though, as if you've got a modern device you're going to need to pick up the HD version as the "standard" 99¢ version of the game doesn't include Retina Display graphics.


Destina, 99¢ - Forum Thread - The latest action RPG out of Gamevil which comes with all their usual trimmings: 30 hours of gameplay, multiple classes, and more. There's even a item construction mechanic.


Globulos Mania, Free - Forum Thread - This free title is absolutely packed with different mini games, 20 in all. 4 Globulos-centric games come initially unlocked, with more available.


Flick Champions, 99¢ / Universal HD - Forum Thread - This seems like an interesting idea- Apply a flick-based control mechanic to every sport you can think of. In this case there are 8 different sports to play, with tournaments, cups, and tons of unlockables.


Hunger Calls, 99¢ / HD - Forum Thread - It might be easy to categorize this as a time management game, but it might be more accurate to call it a conveyor belt management game. Either way, it looks like it could be cool and I'm anxious to see how the boss mechanics work out.


Hypership Out of Control, 99¢ - Forum Thread - As the title may hint, in this game, your space ship is out of control with the throttle stuck. It seems like a combination of an avoidance game with a vertical shooter, which sounds really cool.


Monsters Ate My Condo, 99¢ - Forum Thread - Adult Swim Games and PikPok have teamed up to release this crazy color-matching puzzle game. I've liked everything that Adult Swim has done so far, so I'm thinking this won't be any different.


Run Fox Run, 99¢ - Forum Thread - An endless runner where you play as a fox? Alright, I'm in.


Serious Sam Kamikaze Attack!, 99¢ - Forum Thread - As much as I'd love to see a real Serious Sam game on the iPhone, I suppose I'll settle for this weird running game! Still, I've got my fingers crossed for some more from the Serious Sam series.


Tiny Farm, Free - Even though there have been a million farming games since the original success of Farmville, the breeding mechanic in Tiny Farm reminds me of Pocket Frogs, a game I spent a flat out silly amount of time on. It'll be interesting to see if Tiny Farm has the same magic.

    nothing good has been in development for  a few weeks now. :( come on developers, come up with some simulation games, or something like sim tower, or sim ant, themepark (NOT FREE CRAP) ...anything besides the usual stuff.

    Time to move the slider bar 3/4 of the way through each video just to see the game-play.

    What everyone else said. I've seen all the angry birds and farm ville clones I can handle :)
    Not to mention all the in app purchases that developers keep adding. I just want to play a decent game without ads and sneaky purchase deals :)

    What a crock of shit. More generic rubbish. I can't stand anymore physics puzzle games,drop this, cut that, tilt catch vomit repeat...or the endless running games.. shite.

    Hey guys, Asphalt 6 is FREE.

    Cowboy Guns looks like Pocket RPG in the wild west, which may be interesting. Destinia may have potential. The rest, not looking great to me.

    As for the commenters, it appears now that iOS games are reaching their saturation point like consoles did a few years back, where overproduction and rampant imitations diluted the market. Be patient and smart with your $, and look to old games you skipped over to carry you through to the next game you want to play!

    None of these games looks fun. I just want Junk Jack to release already!

    • S Ramisetty

      That game looks amazing

    Hypership is nuts. Good times.
