I had to triple check my calendar, and then double check a different calendar to make sure it wasn't Wednesday, as tonight's releases snuck up on us by surprise. I guess it makes sense, as it seems a little weird to release your brand new game on Thanksgiving. Or maybe releasing your game on Thanksgiving makes perfect sense. Either way, all of these games should be available at 11:00 PM Eastern, and we'll just have to see if there's a similar release onslaught tomorrow as well.

Armored Drive, 99¢ - Forum Thread - An endless driver with a similar look and feel to Spy Hunter? This could be cool.

Desert Stormfront, $4.99 - Forum Thread - RTS games can be a little dicey on iOS devices depending on how the controls play out, I'm excited to see how they're all handled in this one.

Endless Road, 99¢ - Forum Thread - I really dig the art style of this endless isometric racer, as it's super clean.

Littlest Pet Shop, Free - Forum Thread - So, yeah, I'm just going to leave this here.

Heroes of Order and Chaos, Free - Forum Thread - A MOBA by Gameloft set in the Order & Chaos universe? I'm not sure it's the first, like the trailer says, but hopefully it'll play as good as it looks.

Meganoid 2, 99¢ - Forum Thread - The original Meganoid [$1.99] was pretty awesome, and it stands to reason that the sequel will be even better.

Motley Blocks, $2.99 - Forum Thread - We got a look at this game back at E3, and while it's a pretty slick puzzler it definitely makes me wish Square would put less effort into stuff like this and more effort into porting Final Fantasy VI.

Pony Trails, 99¢ - Forum Thread - The most realistic pony trekking available on the App Store, taking place in an alternate universe where bears, horses, and mountain goats all live in perfect harmony inside of three feet of each other.

Race of Champions World, $4.99 - Forum Thread - Real cars, real tracks, car damage, and a wide swath of supported devices in a racing game? What's the catch?

Skylanders Battlegrounds, $6.99 - Forum Thread - I think I've officially transcended to "old person" status for not knowing what a portal of power is. If you're into the Skylanders ecosystem, this looks right up your alley.

Sphoxie, $1.99 - Forum Thread - A puzzle game starring a "little spikey blue spherical dude," I like this sort of lo-fi polygon look. Hopefully it's cool.

Tropical Stormfront, $3.99 - Forum Thread - Another RTS? Well, everything I said about the other one still applies here!

    Car damage? I hope it's more than just a bumper coming off...

    • juls363

      A.k.a. Real racing 2

      Funny, because Carmageddon have a cool car damage system, so that is ridiculous that no one can do similar

  • TheFrost

    Endless Road is getting better and better each time I play it, the generating landscapes thing (there are so many to discover) is impressive

    • http://www.the-app-shack.com Matt F

      Sure is!

  • sprawl

    Can't wait for that Pony Hunting simulation to come out

    • Nick

      That or Littlest Pet Shop.... Argh, the choices!!

  • W4TSON

    Looks like I'll be skipping this week. Nothing interesting here.

  • Awesomenessprime

    Nothing this week means more time with Knights of Pen and Paper

    • http://twitter.com/TouchedWieners Tyler Piderit

      How are you liking that game? I've been eyeballing it for a while and keep forgetting about it at the same time!

    My game, Oppo-Citrus, also launched today. It's a puzzle game with pixel-art graphics and a fruit theme. Cause, you know, there aren't enough of those in the app store.

      Good luck!

  • ImJPaul

    Please please pleasssseeee let there be more tomorrow because this list is not so good. I haven't bought a game in ages because nobody is pushing the limits anymore. Pooey!

  • MarkyMarc

    My downloads have been few and far between lately. This week doesn't help. Race of Champions...maybe.

    • DannyTheElite

      I buy too much...

  • BJorn_LuLszic

    Heroes of Order and Chaos and Skylanders Battlegrounds are the only game. Can't wait to play the first MOBA game on my iPad!

  • Prinado

    Good timing on the Pony Trek release. I just picked up Glue Factory Simulator last week.

  • Shinsaku

    Rage of the Gladiator is up as well!!!

  • Zinzan

    What about modern warfare 4!!!!!!!

    • regkilla

      Modern Combat 4 you mean lol

  • Jerutix

    Isn't "little spiky blue spherical dude" reserved for Sonic the Hedgehog?

  • Eegah

    On top of this EA's starting their usual holiday sale, and I'm sure everyone else will be following suit over the next day. The new NFS in particular is down to 5 bux and most things at least six months old are a buck.

  • influx

    For those who want another option Fish Out of Water was released today. See forum thread.

  • kenken11

    I am sure there is another thurs release as a few games are listed to be out tml. Just hope those games are gd haha as wed release is a disappointment for me.

  • JohnnyHand

  • http://www.tap-start.com/ Mirkwood

    A Tuesday release? Oh the humanity!

    lol--"taking place in an alternate universe where bears, horses, and mountain goats all live in perfect harmony inside of three feet of each other."

  • http://www.iphoneapplicationdevelopmentindia.com/ Ryan Lawrence

    This all games are good but we can add few more like violet storm, ion racer, cubemen, skylanders cloud patrol, the world’s strongest man etc. to make it better list of upcoming iOS games.

    Splendid job! The topic is on the front burner and it was really interesting to read it. Write more!
