It's Wednesday again, which means we're that much closer to the next episode of Downton Abbey. Err, wait, iPhone games. We're getting a whole bunch of them tonight. Rovio's Bad Piggies is supposed to be hitting too but the way they time their releases we won't have an actual iTunes link until it's live worldwide. This generally seems to happen around midnight Pacific. Either way, all of these games will be available at 11:00 PM Eastern:

Amazing Runner, 99¢ - Forum Thread - A futuristic-themed behind the back endless runner. Apparently the feeling of speed was a priority for the developers, so that's something.

Cartoon Wars Blade, 99¢ - Forum Thread - This series has been incredibly popular, and I wish I could get in to them. If you like slaying tons of cartoon dudes, this will certainly satiate that craving.

Dead Stop, 99¢ - Forum Thread - A monster-themed tower defense game that at first glance reminds me a lot of The Creeps.

Electric Tentacle, 99¢ - Forum Thread - If you're the kind of person who is in to tentacles... And electricity, well, here's a cave flyer of sorts that play on those two desires.

God of Blades, $2.99 - Forum Thread - Take a look at our TA Plays video of this neat neat sidescrolling battler.

Legend of Fat Ninja, $1.99 - Forum Thread - According to the screenshot, it's the most fun and engaging game on the App Store, and I've always known screenshots to tell the truth.

NFL 2013, Free - Forum Thread - A free to play football game? Eh, OK. I feel like I should be making a joke about referees here.

Reiner Knizia: Card Buster, 99¢ - Forum Thread - A card game from the puzzle mastermind Reiner Knizia and published by Bulkypix, seems like a pretty good team up to me.

Super Monsters Ate My Condo, 99¢ - Forum Thread - The original Monsters Ate My Condo was awesome, and this sequel is super. What else is there to say?

The Last Express, $4.99 - Forum Thread - The first iOS game from Prince of Persia creator Jordan Mechner, which has piqued our interest in the worst way.

Zeniforms: Protectors, $1.99 - Forum Thread - The age of Pokemon-likes is upon us. Do you know where your Bulbasaur is?

MechWarrior: Tactical Command, $9.99 - Forum Thread - It almost slipped by us, but the overhead-strategy take on the classic MechWarrior franchise is hitting tonight as well, for the iPad only. We liked what we saw of this back at WWDC in June.

    No Bad Piggies?

    • Deamon34

      Tomorrow night yo

      • ImJPaul

        Midnight pacific time* or 3am eastern tonight.

  • Deamon34

    Shazbot! No Revolt? Was hoping it would sneak out.

  • regkilla

    NFL Pro 2013 better be less iAP based!

    • Rafael Palma

      Have you played NFL 2012? It's kinda lame that you have to buy PLAYS with in game currency, but i still managed to buy the basic plays, and had some fun with it.

    • runliketurtles

      This year you can use the Overwhelmed Ref IAP power up to change any Interception into a TD.

  • Tinsel

    If you've never played The Last Express, you're in for quite a treat. IMHO it is the most exciting release tonight. I have owned that game in one form or another for the last 10 (15?) years. It's one of the best adventure games of all time.

  • Misguided

    You mean the first iOS game from Jordan Mechner without "Prince of Persia" in the title, yes?

  • Metroview

    When is Infinity Blade: Dungeons & Real Racing 3 coming out?

    • ducksFANjason

      Not this week

      • ImJPaul

        One day. Real racing 3 will probably come soon and infinity blade dungeons probably in like 20 years.

      • Nick

        IB: D is starting to seek like vaporware 🙁

        I know it's not, seeing as its Epic, but it needs to happen NOW.

  • kickerflipper

    I'm not really impressed with these games when is the good stuff coming out -____-

    • Superatomic

      Last express is the best of the lot for sure.. But no really good ones.

    • Nick

      Eh? I get comments like these when its ream after ream of brainless physics puzzlers and nothing of substance... But Last freaking Express? God of Blades? Just those 2 from quality alone, that's an excellent batch of games. And Knizia's game includes The cool poker squares variant. There's major potential of awesomeness there.

  • dariusjr98

    Cartoon Wars?! *gasp* I've been waiting for more Cartoon Wars!!! Damn, I wish I had money…

    • ImJPaul

      It's $1. U don't have a dollar?

      • dariusjr98

        No, I got like ¢80 left in my account, and don't get paid anytime soon. 😛

      • Ian Vischansky

        Do you need to borrow some money for food?

      • dariusjr98

        Huh? Was that a joke, or were you serious?

  • Origon

    Zenforms for me! I've been following this game for a long time! If your even vaguely interested check out the Zenforms forums!

    • alienraider

      I just saw it, it looks like a fantastic game

    • Raghav Jetly

      Or you could just install Pokemon(at least till the 3rd Gen) on your iphone.

  • gian888


  • Rusothil

    Only zenforms for me.

  • Superatomic

    No good RPGs?

  • Terwilke

    Walking Dead episode 3 where are you?

  • reasonjp

    Should be said, heed the release notes on last express re iPhone 5 compatibility- it doesn't run letterboxed, it's completely screwed up. Update coming apparently.

  • Jeff Melrose

    STP also points out that Mechwarrior: Tactical Command is out tonight.

  • alienraider

    What time is zenomorphs going to be out tonight?

    • alienraider

      Zenimorphs, sorry

  • subshell001

    Freaking Mechwarrior: Tactical Command.

    • Nicholas Yu

      Whenever a Mechwarrior product is released, my bank account is affected within seconds.

  • Aweszome

    Been waiting for zenforms for a WHILE now. And as far as Pokemon clones go it seems like it has things that sets it apart and it looks fun. Heard it has no newer support for the iPhone 5? Anyone know if that's true?

  • JCat_NY

    This looks like a better than average week, particularly since there aren't 30 physics puzzlers!  

  • Pray For Death

    Good stuff, will be buying Last Express.

  • Jaime Coston

    Zenforms, MechWarrior: Tactical Command and perhaps Cartoon Wars Blade for me... Perhaps Super Monster Ate My Condo, but its not high on my list, especially when I can have a MechWarrior game tonight!

  • kingrocknlr

    Star Command what?

  • Hoggy110

    Still waiting for Jet Set Radio....

  • monsieurfreeze

    Too bad : god of blades is not optimized for iPhone 5 screen
