The two giants this week are Tiny Wings 2.0 and Amazing Alex, weirdly enough, there's tons of other games that threw their hat into the release arena too. An important note, currently Amazing Alex is nowhere to be found on any international stores. Typically speaking, Rovio pulls the lever to release their games simultaneously worldwide. So, my spider sense is telling me that we'll see the game everywhere at around... Midnight Pacific time. Everything else in this list should be available at 11:00 PM Eastern.

Ballooned!, Free - Forum Thread - A horizontal scrolling shooter with tons of balloons and costumes.

Bounty Racer, $1.99 - Forum Thread - A cool looking cart racer with four player online multiplayer.

Crash Birds Island, 99¢ - Forum Thread - Tilt controls always seem to work so well for flying games, here's to hoping this one is as fun as it looks.

Criminal Investigation Agents: Petrodollar$, $2.99 / HD - Forum Thread - We don't usually post about these sorts of hidden object games, but the premise of this one seemed too silly to ignore, especially as you play as an elite agent from the Federal Tax Bureau.

Knights of the Round Cable, 99¢ - Forum Thread - We got a look at this ultra-casual swinging game at E3, and liked it quite a bit.

Jay and Silent Bob in: Let Us Dance!, Free / HD - Forum Thread - A... Free Jay and Silent Bob rhythm game?

Jay and Silent Bob in: Too Fat to Fly, 99¢ / HD - Forum Thread - Remember the Southwest Airlines drama? Well, it's been made into a game.

Metal Slug 3, $6.99 - Forum Thread - The classic Neo Geo arcade sidescrolling shooter. I really hope the controls are good.

Outmaneuver, 99¢ - Forum Thread - A hex-based strategy game eh?

Pocket Heroes, 99¢ - Forum Thread - A turn-based multiplayer online RPG that I couldn't be more excited for.

Professor Pym and the Secret of Steam, Free - Forum Thread - I don't know what the technical name for the genre that these spinning vertical jumping games would fall under, but they always seem to work well on iOS devices.

Tap Tap Revenge Tour, Free - Forum Thread - The latest installment in the Tap Tap Revenge series.

Tiny Wings HD, $2.99 - Forum Thread - We already extensively went over this game this morning, so give that a peep in you want the skinny on all things Tiny Wings related!

    Why do all the links go to the NZ app store?

    • Flare_TM

       Because they are only out on the NZ app store at time of posting

  • abodi

    What is meant by "Ultra casual"?

  • Noah

    Well, this comment thread is fun!

  • Konstantin Mihailov

    No amazing alex? D:

    • 11liker99

      Good that game sucked

  • Danny Perski

    Also, a new update for my puzzle game Exponential Invasion went live today. I've added a bunch of new, challenging levels to play around with. If you get a chance, please give it a look!

  • John McCollum

    Metal Slug 3 has great controls. It appears to be a MAME emulated version. It's great on the iCade with Blutrol. See my YouTube video

    • EB1089

      That's really nice to know! I love Metal Slug 7 on the Nintendo DS! It'd be great to have an actually functional version to play on my iPod touch.

  • hellscaretaker

    That's the most unhelpful video of tiny wings I every seen if that's what u call trying to sell it to me I'm walking by

    • Eli Hodapp

      This is the Citizen Kane of internet comments.

      • BenchWarmers Clique


    • Metroview

      As posted right below the video, THERE'S A THREAD DEDICATED TO TINY WINGS. Don't be lazy. Get with the times already.

    • Tatiana

      That's a nice opinion you have. Too bad it's wrong.

  • Words of Ivory

    Pocket Heroes looks like it could be interesting...

  • wingz

    METAL SLUGS $6.99 #%@$ I DONT HAVE THE MOONNEEYY!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • 11liker99

      Y $7?!

  • Rafael Palma

    I don't see how Pocket Heroes could work.
    I mean, a party with your friends sounds epic, but, what if someone doesn't takes his turn? What will happen? This kind of game is good for Words with Friends for example, but for a rpg?
    Well, i think we just need to wait...

    • Ethan E.

      That's exactly what I was thinking!! I guess I just have to try it out!

  • mudads

    $2.99 for a sequel to a .99 game? Am I missing something? (Other than the opportunity of cashing in on the success of the first one?)

    • mudads

      Sorry. Talking about Tiny Wings.

      • mudads

        Never mind. Thought I read everything. The iPhone update is free. The $2.99 is for the iPad version. Sorry for wasting your time here.

      • Brandon

        I can't believe I wasted 10 seconds of my life to read your comments. My life is ruined now.

      • Flare_TM

         Sorry, just had to waste another 3 seconds 🙂

      • Brandon

        Great, now I'm dead. Thanks for that.

      • TigerXtreme69

        Brandon, you are lucky you're dead. You made me waste so much time on this thread when clearly I'm on the Touch Arcade forums trying to get stuff done.

      • Brandon

        Now I'm alive, in an alternate universe where there is no technology. I was able to find one last gap in between the universes to send this message. My life is absolutely miserable now. All because someone on the internet wasted my time.

  • ImJPaul

    Whatever Brandon at least your not in my situation. 15 seconds GONE!!!

    • bigred447uk

      Well I've just read it all twice by accident ! And I'm 41 years old so that's me one step nearer the grave ! Thanks !

  • Blodia

    I was wondering why SNK pulled the first Metal Slug app. Now I see why; to make room for a high-priced-by-comparison sequel. And I thought Cave and Taito were ballsy in pricing THEIR apps.

    Still, icade support rules. Makes me wonder why they haven't put it in the KOF games.

  • ImJPaul

    11:39 and none of those r up. Apples slacking. Not that I'm incredibly excited for any of this anyways. Going to bed.

    • Nick

      Uh, they're all up. They have been, for a while, since 8pst. Tiny wings, Round Cable... They worked for me!

  • Eraser74

    This week is pretty weak with releases that actually look good. Pocket Heroes is not for me, because of the online only component and the rest looks not very exciting. Knights of the Round Cable seems to be the only one worth purchasing.

  • lr1919

    What's up with Field Runners 2?
