It's a weirdly light week for game releases, I held on to posting this as late as I could in the day to see what (if anything) else turned up, and oddly enough it's really just these nine games as far as I can tell. Well, whatever, they're all coming tonight and should be available at 11:00 PM Eastern if all goes as planned.

 

A Wonderland Story, 99¢ / HD - Forum Thread - A really clever puzzle platformer where you slide the game world around (similar to the way you might control a row-sliding match three) to get the rabbit to the end of the level. There's even a randomly generated endless mode.



Mikey Shorts Halloween, Free - Forum Thread - The spooky version of Mikey Shorts, free this time around with some new levels to celebrate Halloween.


 

Save Them All, 99¢ - Forum Thread - An endless runner from Chillingo with a slick world-saving theme and (at least per the trailer) it seems to have a really great sense of speed to it.


 

Sonic Jump, $1.99 - Forum Thread - This game has me scratching my head. Maybe it would've made sense when Doodle Jump and Mega Jump were so popular, but now? And for $1.99 instead of free with Temple Run-style IAP? And a jumping game starring Sonic? Well, alright.


 

Stupid Zombies 2, 99¢ - Forum Thread - Apparently ten million people downloaded the original Stupid Zombies, so if you were among that massive group of people, here's the sequel.


 

Symphonica, Free - Forum Thread - An interesting looking musical game from Squeenix. It's free to try, then unlocking the rest of the game can be done in IAP bundles ranging from $2.99 for single chapters all the way up to $14.99 for the whole thing.


 

True Skate, $1.99 - Forum Thread - We've already had our greasy hands all over this for a recent TA Plays video. Needless to say, if you're even vaguely into skateboarding, this is a must-download.


 

Wonder Zoo: Animal Rescue!, Free - Forum Thread - A free to play zoo building and animal rescuing game from Gameloft.


 

Zombie Rollers, 99¢ - Forum Thread - Thanks to Chillingo I can now cross off "ball rolling" from my list of ways I can kill zombies on iOS devices.


Square Planet, Free - Forum Thread - This looks like a fairly awesome platforming game starring a round ball character in an extremely square world. It's 2.5D too, so classic side-scrolling action set in a beautiful 3D world.


Crazy Boss, Free - Forum Thread - Hmmmm, this appears to be a Temple Run-like 3rd-person endless runner but set in an office working environment. Alrighty then. The goal is to escape your "crazy boss" using your rolling desk chair and avoiding obstacles on the way. Ok, ok, that's actually a pretty cool premise.


Suran, 99¢ - Forum Thread - This appears to be another side-scrolling auto-run game, but something about its aesthetics has really caught my eye. It's also kind of interesting that the controls have been implemented so that the screen is split into fourths and each quadrant performs a different action.


Spiders X, $1.99 - Forum Thread - It's kind of hard to tell what's going on in this game what with all the marketing baloney plastered on the screenshots, but apparently this is a line-drawing puzzler where you must lead spiders (yuck) out of a forest and to the safety of their castle. Or something like that.


Take It Easy, $1.99 - Forum Thread - The app description describes this as "bingo with strategy", which sounds pretty intriguing. There also appears to be tons of content with 3 modes and over a hundred different puzzles to solve.


Clumsy Cat, Free - Forum Thread - Instead of coming home to find that your cat got bored and shredded up your priceless items, this game lets you actually be the cat and cause all the destruction. It's got a really cute style, and I just love the smug look on the cat's face as he wrecks his owner's home while they're away.


Finger Tied, 99¢ - Forum Thread - A pretty clever iPad-only puzzle game where you need to work your way through a maze like board using multiple fingers at once.

    First to snooze at this list.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Paul-Hopper/1238691947 Paul Hopper

      Agreed, not a whole lot here making me want to spend my itunes giftcard on. Still waiting on star command, baldurs gate and... well I was waiting on infinity blade dungeons.. but we all know how thats going -.-

      • http://iqsoup.com/ iqSoup

        If Baldur's Gate ever comes out it'll be the happiest day of my life!

    • xepiczx

      Guess what has released early modern combat 4 it's out today

  • IMNS

    Grabbing true skate as soon as it shows up in my store.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_P2B7I5HEQHKW4NKMDWOMRZCZAY Rae

    No clumsy cat?

    • dingogames

      I can confirm that Clumsy Cat is coming tonight.

  • JRaynor

    where is hidden runaway?

  • Megagator

    You forgot Mikey Shorts: Halloween!

  • Firetruck94

    True skate for me and maybe symphonica

  • http://www.handsometrustworthy.com/ Armaan Khan

    You know, Sonic would be perfect fodder for an infinite runner, because that's all he does: run really fast. Why did Sega decide to put him in a jumping game while making Zaxxon and infinite runner?

  • Metroview

    What happened with the 2.0 update of Blueprint 3D? Wasn't that supposed to release last week?

    • BrettArchibald

      It's live now! :-)

      • Metroview

        Sweet!! Just got it! :D

    I think this is the lightest week I've seen in recent memory.  There's really nothing that I want to download this week.  Hopefully something comes out of the blue and surprises us.

    • Drewskii

      Agreed. I'm hoping the "out of the blue" surprises are "Minigore Zombies" and/or the "Phoenix Wright Trilogy."

      • Drewskii

        If there are any that is.

  • ImJPaul

    True Skate looks cool. The square Enix game could be interesting. Maybe. We'll see how this pans out. Big hopes for next week with the whole apple event happening.

    • JJE

      True skate without a doubt. I'm just hoping for good tutorials cause I think I'm going to suck a lot.
      SqE is still larding on the costs tho. I would almost say justify $15 if you had any hope for additional music but you know that's not true. The story is emo forgettable. It's the additional music that makes or breaks rhythm games.

  • just0

    True Skate mutha fu*ka!!!

  • TR3S

    I want to make a game called "Deez Nutz" and market the hell out of it in the forums. I am talking teaser trailers, long awaited gameplay trailers, unbelievable screenshots, iPhone 5 support, and Game Center leader-boards (that are safeguarded from hackers). So that on one Wednesday (some time next year) the article reads "Coming Tonight: Deez Nutz."

    • classicrockme

      You win the award for comment of the day :p

      • TheShahnameh

        Just add the word "Zombies" to it too and you'll be an overnight millionaire. You could even make a killing adding the word to used condoms nowadys even, I bet!

      • TR3S

        HEAR THAT DAD! I'M SOMEBODY!

  • Eegah

    hey wait where's our physics puzzler for the week? i'm confused

    • Professionalbum

      At least we got our weekly dose of a zombie title.

  • Deixa

    For the past 4 weeks the releases have been dead what's going on? Only thing here that looks half decent is true skate and maybe sonic jump but everything else just the same old crap

    • ImJPaul

      They're coming. November/December you'll be flooded with so many games you'll go broke.

  • Deixa

    I would like to see a Sonic temple run style that would definitely be an instant buy but one can only wish

    • LearnIIBurn

      Totally! It's what Sonic was born to do. I'm mega confused why he's jumping. I'm sure many people that work for Sega are confused too...

      • thesmashingone

        Because Sonic Jump and SJ2 were previously made mobile games (by oddly enough, Glu Mobile). I guess Sega wanted their Hardlight studio to make a "remake" of sorts.

  • E_7

    Just posted about a dozen more games on the forums. Feel free to have a look.

    • gquiller

      Where is the link please?

  • Solidfart

    Yawnnnnnnnn!

  • hexagon221

    Sonic Jump has been around since the symbian era. I remember having it on my old nokia. This is a welcome remake, although 1.99 is kinda steep :/

  • Gamer_Kev

    A bit disappointing. I was hoping for something new and interesting to try out on my new iPod touch. The new Mikey Shorts levels look fun, but I'd rather play that on my iPad using the iCade.

  • CloudKid

     Negative Nimbus released today too! Here's the gameplay trailer, it's in the App Store (iPad) for $0.99! http://vimeo.com/51545119

  • Vtec51O

    Nothing to see here folks, move along... Move along....

  • Alc819

    Snooze feast

    Might not get anything tonight True Skate does look cool but I only have an iphone I think the screen is just too small for that game 

  • http://twitter.com/JohannAffendy Johann Affendy

    Aside for True Skate and Carmageddon, this could be the worst week yet.

    • Himmat Singh

      Well, if you turn out not liking either a skateboard game or a classic arcade car-smashing game, this could indeed be the worst week. Ever.

  • http://www.facebook.com/johnnewton29 John Newton

    I think its time PETA broke into Sega's offices and liberate Sonic. Its been one helluva long downwards slide post Dreamcast :(

  • Himmat Singh

    For the first time in a long time, I find not even one intriguing game on the list. In comparison, there were 4 last week.

    Take It Easy is actually a re release...

    It was originally published by Zabu studios (who also did Thunderstone Gateway) but it was recently taken off the AppStore so Ravensburger could publish it under their brand.

    I can confirm the game is excellent and highly recommend it

  • Noah

    So tired of the endless runners.

  • grid

    Wonder what the deal is with TakeItEasy. I've had it on my phone for months. Is this a re-release, or what? Good game though.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002798214175 Gamor Chickk

    They showed every single game except colorooh! Why the discrimination? Why do these great indie devs get ignored?? It sickens me. Colorooh was the best release that night!
