I'm glad to see game releases ramping up again. Tonight's list is no slouch, and there's really something here for everyone regardless of whether you like Squeenix RPGs, simple casual games, or even bullet hell shooters.

Also, today is "Pi day" if that means anything to you.

Anyway, all of these games should be available at 11:00 PM Eastern, or potentially much earlier (or even now) if your iTunes region of choice is of the European or Asian variety.

Azkend 2, $3.99 - Forum Thread - I absolutely loved the original Azkend. It had an amazing power curve for a puzzle game with new power ups and gameplay elements that made it impossible to put down. I'm expecting the same of the sequel.

Chaos Rings II, $15.99 / HD - Forum Thread - I personally have a hard time getting excited for Squeenix RPG's anymore, call it old and jaded gamer syndrome, but people love this series for iOS. Just like previous Chaos Rings games, they've got a whole array of updates already scheduled.

Cheeky Mouse, Free - Forum Thread - I'm not sure I've ever played a PONOS game I didn't like, and I doubt Cheeky Mouse is going to change that.

Cheese Please, 99¢ - Forum Thread - A slick little mouse-centric puzzle game from Gamevil.

DoDonPachi Resurrection HD, $9.99 - Forum Thread - A CAVE bullet hell shooter, filled with tons of sprites, bullets, power-ups, and everything else CAVE games are always packed with.

Dreamy Goat, 99¢ - Forum Thread - I have no idea what you do in this game, but I really like the title.

Fireball SE, 99¢ - Forum Thread - These guys made Super Crossfire, which was great, so I'm expecting big things from Fireball SE.

Harry The Fairy, 99¢ - Forum Thread - This looks like an avoidance game, along the lines of a cave flier, starring a green fairy named Harry.

Kung Fu Rabbit, 99¢ - Forum Thread - Can we call Super Meat Boy-likes a genre yet? Either way, this one looks cool.

Letris Power, Free - Forum Thread - The latest from the Letris series of word games.

MotoHeroz, 99¢ / HD - Forum Thread - A Trials-style racing game with an awesome looking art style? I am SO in.

Picnic Wars, 99¢ / HD - Forum Thread - Well, it's official, we've hit every conceivable theme for iPhone games! Either way, I'm digging the isometric view of this game.

Rune Raiders, $1.99 - Forum Thread - I'm really not sure I understand how you play this game by screenshots and trailers, but it looks like a turn-based strategy-like puzzle game?

Super Lemonade Factory, 99¢ - Forum Thread - A pixel-art powered puzzle platformer.

    Oh swell. Chaos Rings II is coming out for iPhone and iPad at launch. But not as a universal app.

    So close. So far.

    Looks like another selection of generic mini-games again.

    $20 for Chaos Rings 2? After charging why they did for Chaos Rings 1 and then Omega rehash....

    MotoHeroz isn't just Trials-inspired, it's actually developed by RedLynx, the guys that made Trials HD.

    False.  3/1/4159 is the next Pi day.

    I'm really enjoying chaos rings ii... The control scheme is setup a bit better ( utilizing the touch screen much more - rethinking how RPGS are played^_^), and there is a ton added to the fighting system!
    There is a ton of replay-ability , from what I see. Each playable character ( which is a ton!) has speical abilities that are needed to interact with certain objects and obstacles , so in effect - you need to replay certain boards when certain characters are available,  in order to unlock the entire game. 
    Not to mention the awesome new abilities and casts added, and AWSOME voice acting. 
    It fun watching this franchise develop and mature. Kinda reminds me of watching the NES FF's grow into fully realized FFIV - FFVIII^_^ 
    I can't wait to see how far this goes!!!

    Chaos Rings II is just awesome! If you're into any turn-based RPG games (such as Final Fantasy), this game is a must-have for you. I'm only half way through it and I am LOVING it!
