Oh hey, it's Wednesday. Strap in for a whole load of new iOS games. We're particularly excited about Gasketball, but, it's always awesome to see new Adult Swim games like Super Mole Escape. As usual, all of these games will be available at 11:00 Eastern, or potentially much earlier if you're in a region that's east of us.

Chimpact, 99¢ - Forum Thread - A vertical jumping (or, flinging, I guess) game involving a monkey and loads of bananas.

Cruel Jewels, Free - Forum Thread - You might look at this and see just another match three, but, what if I told you that it had "scrumptious" action?

DMBX 2 - Mountain Bike and BMX, $1.99 - Forum Thread - Games like this make me feel so boring just riding a bike around. Look at all those sick tricks being pulled off in the trailer, just LOOK AT THEM.

Draw Breaker, 99¢ - Forum Thread - A block breaking game where you draw a line to create a paddle of sorts for your ball to bounce off of instead of tilting or moving your finger around, which seems like a neat idea.

Gasketball for iPad, Free - Forum Thread - We extensively previewed this game, and if you have an iPad, you should just stop what you're doing and download it.

Ghostbusters Paranormal Blast, 99¢ - Forum Thread - An augmented reality game starring all sorts of ghosts from Ghostbusters.

Happy Squirrels, 99¢ - Forum Thread - Sure, you've played time management games, but have you played a time management game involving squirrels?

Kingdoms & Lords, Free - Forum Thread - Here's one of those free to play timer-laden building games, but this time, with a battle mechanic.

Michael Jackson: The Experience, $2.99 - Forum Thread - This game has been available on basically every platform imaginable, and now, you can "Beat It" on iOS devices.

Pitfall!, 99¢ - Forum Thread - For the 30th anniversary of Pitfall, Activision apparently decided to reboot the series by, um, making their own Temple Run too.

Sticky Linky, 99¢ - Forum Thread - I don't really understand how this game is played from the iTunes text, but it seems to involve multiple layers of matching, which definitely has my interest piqued.

Super Mole Escape, 99¢ - Forum Thread - A turbo-charged digging game by Adult Swim, a publisher that has been on fire for quite some time now when it comes to releasing fun titles.

    Ugh....no good RPGs....

    Guess I can hold onto my money another week....

    • ImJPaul

      My thoughts exactly.

  • http://www.facebook.com/skaidon Adam Roberts

    Very lame week, this week. Maybe the Adult Swim game but not a title I'm going to go out of my way to pick up...

  • sgwilkerson

    Organ Trail: Director's Cut should be coming out too https://twitter.com/HatsProductions/status/233084557757403137

  • Clyndon

    Boring.... but hey, you've missed Edna! At least one good game to get. Even an adventure! This will make me happy until the next eo of The Walking Dead.

    • http://www.vitaltitles.com/ Nick

      Agreed. I was disgustingly disappointed in Pitfall. I was praying it would be a reboot of the original style, not a crappy temple run clone. If I see another copy of that imma punch a kitten. Or a baby seal. Maybe both.

      What is this Edna you speak of??

  • 1@N

    Uggg.....still no star command....:(

      Ya I really can't wait for this one!

  • Timmis6010

    I think Organ Trail is coming out too. According to the devs' twitter anyhow.

  • sgwilkerson

    Gasketball only for ipad? 🙁 fuuck, was so excited! now im sad 🙁 

  • Professionalbum

    Meh on this week

  • Ataris8327

    Still waiting for jet set radio.

    • OldBearEric

      Yes!!! Can't wait for Jet Set Radiooo Radioooooo!!!

  • ImJPaul

    Where's Lili or other Bitmonsters games?Infinity Blade Dungeons? Final Fantasy Dimensions? Republique? The Gameloft Unreal Engine games? Shardlands? This isn't even close to all the AWESOME games coming soon. None of these are coming this week?! Lame. I'm sick of waiting. Seriously. This platform is incredible. Can we please show the world so they stop laughing at us?! Maybe if we start producing exclusive games like infinity blade 2 then the market will have to adapt. Instead we get cat games and more recycled garbage. At least there's enough quality stuff in a month. Weeks like this just make me upset. Wah.

    • Greyskull

      There ARE releases on days other than Wednesday night/Thursday, you know...you just have to keep your eyes peeled.

      • ImJPaul

        Ya. It big games usually come out on Wednesday late night. It's the iOS standard. Tho it does happen its not as likely. Well, with good games anyways.

  • Josh Orcutt

    Gasketball is iPad only 🙁
    I wanted that for my iPhone! Where's the iPhone/universal version?

    • Paps Shenanigan

      Same here, was really bummed it wasn't available for iPhone/iPod. I don't understand why??

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1134582760 Nicole Hunter

    Dragon Island.  Come out soon.  

  • blackout845

  • Mr. Grizzly

  • Flare_TM


    I never say "bad week", like ever, but I had to make the post this week. HORRENDOUS! Not 1 !

    • JustinRampage

      It figures. The first time that I check new releases, it's on a lame week.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/TXL35VWAGELE4ZXPFRBDLPPP4I alc

    Lamest week ever

    • kendahlj

      Last week was worse...

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/42YS2N67LP6IDUKBZUUCMSZW7M Pray For Death

    Wow, nothing even remotely interesting for me. See you next week

  • InfectiousRed

    I see 1 must buy, a couple of very sketchy maybes, and a lot of snooze.

    • InfectiousRed

      Oops. I take it back. I thought Super Mole Escape was going to be like one of those fun old digging games that there have been a few great games on iOS of, but no, it's just another endless runner.

      Scratch my 1 must buy, keep the rest of my comment the same as this game dropped to the snooze section.

  • Optic-9

    Mrrr, just a hand full of crap this week =/ where is Final Fantasy Dimensions?!?

  • Silverfist

    Waaahhhhh, I didn't get everything I wanted. Santa, you SUCK.


    Seriously, folks, if you don't want any of the apps mentioned, don't buy 'em. I might only pick up one or two myself; maybe it's not exactly an outstanding selection, but... complaining?!


  • Eraser74

    Well another bad week for releases. The only game worth buying seems to be the Super Mole Escape.

  • http://twitter.com/JohannAffendy Joharn Orkslayer

    Not a bad week considering Organ Trail is out. And Trigger Fist too.

  • skeletonlord

    Wasn't Happy Squirrels free? It says 99 cents here

  • ian937262

    These comments are awful. We get it, bad week.

    Anyone have feedback on gameplay of new titles?

  • kendahlj

    Edna and Harvey is a must buy if you like point and click adventure games.

  • Witcher77

    So fed up of you lot always twine twine twine, theres THOUSANDS of games on the app store take yr frigging pick til your must wants is available, and stop spoiling the blog, the team work HARD for you. Show some bloody gratitude.

  • michael smith

    Sudoku Book 3 is also out today

  • witedahlia

    I can testify to Cruel Jewels being a very good game. It's one of the best looking match 3 games I've played.

  • Mr. Grizzly

    Anyone know if you can unlock the other monkeys through normal gameplay, or is it only through iap? If that is the case I will buy them - but I hate buying something I can get for free in the game, if that is the case.
