After the excitement that was the iPhone 5 press event this morning, this list of new games might feel a little underwhelming but I assure you there are some awesome games here. Fieldrunners 2 HD is awesome, and I've got my eyes on a few of these other titles. Anyway, here's what you have to look forward to at 11:00 PM Eastern:

Amp, Watts & Circuit, 99¢ - Forum Thread - A robot game focusing on, well, robots escaping. From the looks of it, there's a heap of included content as well as a level editor with online sharing.

Cosmic Bump, 99¢ - Forum Thread - It's your weekly physics puzzler from Chillingo, this one involves aliens collecting energy cells.

Fieldrunners 2 HD, $7.99 - Forum Thread - We absolutely loved Fieldrunners 2 in our review, but since it's release I've really wanted it on the iPad... And now it's here!

Gibbets 2, 99¢ - Forum Thread - The sequel to an apparently incredibly popular Flash puzzle game where you need to save people from hanging themselves. How heartwarming.

Isaac Newton's Gravity 2, Free - Forum Thread - Another sequel, this time to one of those contraption building physics games. It's free to try out, although I can't help but wonder what Isaac Newton would say about his name being used if he were still around.

Oh, My Cat!, Free - Forum Thread - A vertical flyer starring a cat, perfect for Jared's horrible case of toxoplasmosis!

Rail Rush, 99¢ - Forum Thread - Miniclip enters the fray with their own behind the back Temple Run-like, except this one puts you in a mine cart.

Shufflepuck Cantina, Free - Forum Thread - A space western themed air hockey game that's also free? Well, alright, sounds good to me.

Soldier vs. Aliens, Free - Forum Thread - Everyone knows that the true enemy of any soldier is aliens, which this game seems to feature lots of.

Space Holiday, 99¢ - Forum Thread - A line drawing puzzle game where you connect stars and avoid asteroids. 80 levels are included.

    This week is just... Boring.
    But hey, that is just my opinion

  • Deamon34

    Incoming complaints about Fieldrunners 2 being $7.99 in 3. 2. 1.

    • GSJ1977

      But it really isn't worth that amount! It just isn't! Oh who am I kidding every fecker with an iPad will buy it :-/

      • Leonick

        Yea, I'll buy it, maybe, when it's on sale or something :p
        It's a tower defense game, they're not exactly in short supply (most much cheaper) on the AppStore and I already have a bunch too. Had it been maybe $2.99 sure since everyone claims it's so great, but I never really played the first and don't really know what they changed from that one.

  • Paul Hopper

    Fieldrunners 2, check. The rest, not so much so.

  • E_7

    Shufflepuck Cantina is awesome. That is all.

  • thesmashingone

    No Infinity Blade: Dungeons? I am somewhat disappointed.

    • Leonick

      Yea, what was it they said, "coming soon" right?

      Wonderputt is out and I downloaded it but it's gonna be like celebrating Labor Day instead of Christmas and granted Labor Day (Wonderputt) is cool, but not as cool as Christmas(IB:D). Still, I think it's coming out soon. I definitely think it is. Hopefully next Wednesday. My money is on next Friday though. I have a feeling A LOT of awesome games are coming out next week for the new iPhone. But of they change it from "it'll only look this good on the new iPad" to "it'll only look this good on the new iPhone" I will go to Epic Baltimore and take a crap on their welcome mat and disown them seeing as how I bought an iPad 3 JUST for infinity blade dungeons.

  • bramblett05

    7.99 that's bs wtf people.... Lmao I have it on touch great game and to me worth the price in hd but kinda a crappy week for touch but next week is whole lot better

  • Tom Trusock

    I would have thought that the new iPhone announcement would ushered at least a few more AA if not AAA releases.  Guess not.  It's looking like Infinity Blade: Vaporware again this week...  

  • ducksFANjason

    Consider me utterly underwhelmed... *le sigh*

  • GSJ1977

    Eli: "this list of games might feel a little underwhelming"

    Translation: "doh!!"

  • mguniverse

    What about Wonderputt?

    • Danny Perski

      Seriously, why was Wonderputt not mentioned? That trailer was awesome.

  • Optic-9

    Wow, this week looks weak...yes it's a pun =/

  • Deixa

    This weeks releases is just a joke!

  • troyster

    I want Baldurs Gate!! Terrible release week.

  • Blodia

    Anyone else find themselves saying "ShuppleF-ck" instead of "ShufflePuck"?

    • J

      Only if you are dyslexic

  • Rob Johnson

    You forgot Snappy Dragons 2...

  • JJE

    I played the hell out of Shufflepuck Cafe on my Mac SE. Lots of laughs.

    • GordLacey

      That's the game I thought of when I saw the name here. That was a lot of fun, "back in the day."

  • Gamer_Kev

    Actually speaking of Apple's press event, it kind of left me feeling bitter sweet as I'm not happy about no mention of the iPad Mini, as well as finding out that ios6 is coming out so soon without them fixing the issues in ios5 such as the app store crashing randomly, since all my current devices are going to be left out of the update. However the iPod Touch 5 was a pleasant surprise and I plan to order one on the first payday I have after Christmas. But for right now, I think I'll grab that robot puzzle game, it looks like fun and will give me something to take my mind off off of the disappointments. Think I'll go see if it's up in the US store yet. 🙂

    • Leonick

      What devices do you have anyway? Just saying but the reason your app store is crashing probably isn't due to iOS or the app itself but the hardware you're using running out of ram. I haven't seen the app store crash on my iPad or my iPhone 4, haven't even seen that happen on the first gen iPad my mom has now and that one is prone to issues due to memory.

      • Gamer_Kev

        i'm currently using an iPad 1g and an iPod Touch 3g. I've never had any problem with the app store crashing on either device until updating a iOS 5. i'm not really sure it's memory related because I've monitored the memory and it doesn't seem to be low when the crashes happen, but if it is memory, then that is still an issue because even the iPad 1's low memory should be plenty for something like the app store. It's not like the app store is some big resource demanding app, technically they are just pages with a few pictures and links on them, I remember running more complex apps back when i had a 4meg 486. if Apple can't make something as simple as the app store run right within the memory restraints of their own devices, that's pretty sloppy programing. What ever the issues are that are causing the issues with the app store, I'm not alone as a search with Google will turn up many people with similar problems after moving to iOS 5 even some one the newer iPads. I still use the iPod Touch 3g because I personally like it better than the iPod Touch 4g, especially in the music department. However I do feel that the 3g is starting to get a little long in the tooth, so I plan to get the new iPod Touch and leave the 3g plugged into my sound system. I haven't replaced my iPad because it still does well what I got it for. I get around the problem with the app store by doing my browsing wit App Shopper (which never crashes btw,) and then going straight to the product I want to purchase in the app store, but it would have been nice if Apple had just fixed the issue before moving on.

        PS, sorry about all the errors in that post, I was correcting the errors when I accidentally touch the post button.

  • bacon-N-eggs

    Not into anything this week, still happy!!! I'll have more time for Outwitters, Mikey Shorts, Super Hexagon, and Bitless 😀

  • l_23mer

    Boring thanks for the heads up so now I can just go to sleep. I have been itching to spend some money on IOS and still no relief. Meh.........

  • TeddyNYC

    It would've been nice if Fieldrunners 2 was universal, but because I like it so much and the amount of work & refinement put into the game, I'll give them a pass for charging me for an iPad version. As for the rest of this week's releases, more developers just trying to make a fast buck with poor imitations of current/past hits.

  • toxiccheese

    The one and only amazing Fieldrunners 2 on iPad? And only a mere $7.99? That's an amazing bargain. Sold! Wonderputt is also a must buy! Seems like nothing else is really peaking my interest. There's always next week! Now back to our regularly scheduled evening gaming session...

    • kendahlj

      You mean piquing...

  • JCat_NY

    Yow, this is the ultimate week of "Flash in the pan" style games. 

  • Marco Ferrarelli

    Wonderputt is out, guys.

  • vicsark

    FieldRunners 2 HD crashes after the first level, we need a patch and fast!

  • tinostre

    With the new iPad app we are supposed to be able to add multiple games to our watch list, but we can't in this article.

  • Guillaume Merle

    I've just tried Shufflepuck and it's simply brilliant.
    It's made by Agartha Studios (the french studio responsible for the excellent 1112 game series).
    It's free so just download it asap you won't regret it.
    It's only 30Mb yet the graphics are amazing, story seems interesting enough, gameplay is tons of fun, and music is pretty cool too ! (Especially if you like the Star Wars' cantina music :))
    There is also a 1vs1 mode on the same device.
    I wish I had an iPad 'cause I guess this game is even better on it 😛
