I think we were all expecting Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 [$4.99] to be tonight's big release, but since it was released yesterday, this is what we're left with! Not that this is a bad haul by any means, but, you can't play as Mega Man in any of these games.

Like previous weeks, all of these titles should be available at 11:00 PM Eastern, or potentially much earlier if you're using the App Store in a region to the east of us. So, on with the show.

Aby Escape, Free - Forum Thread - This seems to be a behind the back endless runner, sort of like Temple Run. If nothing else, there's lots of variety between football fields, highways, forests, and more to run through.


Ballistic SE, $1.99 - Forum Thread - A really slick looking dual stick shooter from the guys behind Super Crossfire and Fireball SE, two games I really liked.


Bullistic Unleashed, 99¢ - Forum Thread - A physics-centric almost pinball game of sorts that centralizes around crude humor. For instance, you fling the bulls by stretching out their… Well, you'll see.


Cannon Cat, Free - Forum Thread - A cannon-jumping game starring an adorable cat. Something tells me this is at the top of Jared's wish list tonight.


The Dictator: Wadiyan Games, Free - Forum Thread - Forum Thread - Excited for The Dictator? Here's an adver-game with south South Park-like graphics filled with a bunch of different mini-games. For free, it seems worth a shot.


Escape from Age of Monsters, 99¢ - Forum Thread - Before you roll your eyes and say, "Another endless runner?" check out the art in this game. It's top-notch.


Frenzy Pop, 99¢ / HD - Forum Thread - A platformer with a marvelously ridiculous premise that feels like it's straight out of that weird era of 16-bit games that produced Bubsy and others.


Inotia 4: Assassin of Berkel, $2.99 - Forum Thread - We've heard that the latest installment in the Inotia series is supposed to be hitting tonight, but it hasn't appeared in any international App Store as far as I can tell. Com2uS might be doing one of those tricky "release everywhere at once" things. …Aaaaand it's out now.


Juice 'Em Up! 2, Free - Forum Thread - I've never been able to get into these time management games, but holy cow is there a militant group of fans who can't get enough of them. If you're in that crew, this game is for you.


Polymer, 99¢ - Forum Thread - Nissa was all over this puzzle game with a hands-on preview not too long ago. Give it a look.


Ski Safari, 99¢ - Forum Thread - A really cool looking skiing game where you've got to try your hardest (with the help of a variety of power-ups) to avoid an avalanche.


Spellsword, 99¢ - Forum Thread - A retro-styled side-scrolling action RPG that has iTunes screenshots with Game of Thrones memes in them? Where's that image of Fry with the money? It's appropriate here.

    You can't play as Mega Man in MvC2, either... not with those controls. Biggest disappointment of the year so far. Especially considering the care put into SSIV and Volt. Here's hoping for a major control + graphics update.

      Maybe the graphics did dissapoint, but the controls aren't bad at all (Not perfect either). I am already kicking ass with Mega Man

      SSIV (iOS) sucked until a couple of patches. Volt is just Ultimate SSIV. Wait for a MvC2 patch or a UMvC2.

    You forgot to mention Jetpack Joyride 1.3 should be incoming tonight too.

  • Allan McDonald

    A couple endless runners, an angry birds alike, another lame dual stick shooter, a cheap boring korean rpg and an advertising game..

    I hereby declare iOS gaming dead.

      I hearby declare your opinion worthless. Feel free to go someplace else and play on some other device. 

    • Homer423

      Yes, these games completely suck, but keep in mind that it's spring.

      Both consoles and smartphones have their best games released during the fall.

    Supposedly Lego Harry Potter Years 5-7 is coming out tonight too! Excited for that

      Haven`t you heard yet? Lego Harry Potter Years 5-7 is the new Duke Nukem Forever...

    • http://twitter.com/jakewastaken jakewastaken

      Nice - the first one was a lot of fun. I never actually finished it. Perhaps I need to re-visit.

    and also, Bubble Pig! Donut Games hasn't released a game this great in a while.

    • http://twitter.com/touchgameplay TouchGamePlay

      The Game is already out since last Week.

        Actually, since like a couple days ago.

    Spell Sword looks cool. And I am always down for some skiing especially with the end of the season here. Not bad!

    Inotia 4 is out now :) you might want to update your thread with a link.

    I'm a sucker for RPG games on the iPhone so Inotia is a no brainer for me.  Besides that, SpellSword, Ballistic, and Monsters are my weeks picks.
