It's Wednesday again, and by the looks of this week, it's obvious most developers were simply avoiding last week as there's a lot coming out tonight. Anyway, let's get down to business. Everything here should be available by 11:00 PM Eastern tonight.

BattleFriends at Sea, Free - Forum Thread - If you're just dying to play turn-based Words With Friends-style Battleship, here you go.

The Bowling Dead, Free - Forum Thread - I'm not sure if this game release is a prank or what but here we have Activision, a company with nearly limitless resources, and what do they release on the App Store? A zombie bowling game, of course. Note: this is only available in NZ.

Cave Diver, 99¢ - Forum Thread - We've flown through caves in the numerous cave flyers on the App Store, so why not swim through some?

Crazytarium, 99¢ - Forum Thread - A puzzle game that revolves around taking pills. Seems reasonable.

Flashout 3D, $1.99 - Forum Thread - A neat looking Wipeout-like that has loads of nifty features including but not limited to TV out, iCloud save syncing, and tons more.

Freeze!, Free - Forum Thread - I always dig these black and white games, and this puzzler involves spinning your phone around to solve the 25 included (and 10 bonus) levels.

Ghost Racer, 99¢ - Forum Thread - At first glance, this is just another top-down racer. BUT, it's from the creators of Mos Speedrun [$0.99] which has it at the top of my must-download list tonight.

Gunner Runner, Free - Forum Thread - A game that quite literally takes the behind the back runner and completely turns it around.

The Impossible Test 2!, Free - Forum Thread - The original Impossible Test was really, really popular. I have no doubts the sequel will be too. If you want to feel really dumb failing at very simple tasks, get this.

Jelly All Stars, 99¢ - Forum Thread - This game wins the vague iTunes text description for the week, as it's a puzzle game that's easy to play but difficult to master.

Jet Set Radio, $4.99 - Forum Thread - The SEGA classic Jet Set Radio as a universal iOS app? This is awesome.

Lead Me Home, $1.99 - Forum Thread - An incredibly colorful game centralized around slime. The description is a little vague, but it sounds like it might be Lemmings-like?

Matchblocks, 99¢ - Forum Thread - A action puzzle matching game from the developers of Commander Pixman [$2.99], a surprisingly popular platformer amongst our community.

Sky Hero, 99¢ - Forum Thread - This endless faller polls your location and displays weather in game that represents the weather in your location. THIS IS THE FUTURE.

Street Fighter X Tekken Gauntlet, Free - Forum Thread - If you need a little extra push over the edge to download the full version of Street Fighter X Tekken [$2.99], this could be it.

Team Awesome, 99¢ - Forum Thread - The Edis Brothers are awesome dudes who make awesome games, and Team Awesome, as the title would indicate, should be in line with that. If nothing else, you can battle giant bosses in toilets.

Towers & Dungeons, Free - Forum Thread - A Tiny Tower-like that allows you to build both up and down.

Word Derby, 99¢ - Forum Thread - A word game in the style of those carnival horse racing games that I always fail to win the massive sawdust-stuffed animal at.

Writer Rumble, 99¢ - Forum Thread - I feel like this game has been in development for an eternity. Either way, if you like clever word games, this one is one to get.

Vectrex, Free - Forum Thread - Another awesomely retro iOS emulator enters the fray.

Zen Shapes: The Way of the Brush, 99¢ - Forum Thread - A game of calligraphy puzzles. 60 levels are included as well as a zen mode, story mode, and all sorts of power ups.

  • samdakark

    Hope that Whpeout look-alike is awesome... Ill pick it up at least.

  • Mirkwood

    Kind of dissatisfied with the options based on the volume of games beings released. I'll be giving a few of them a shot though.

  • smes3817

    Surprised there's no mention of Vectrex. That is easily my most anticipated...

    • ImJPaul

    • bababewey

      If your father has the ability to take your iPod, you're a kid.

      • MrSpud

        Maybe he's like, 35 years old!! Still live in the basement....

    • MarkyMarc

      Take care of those grades. You'll be glad you did in the future. And I agree with the above reply.

    Baldurs gate is next week, I thought Battle of the Bulge was this week also? Anyone?

  • irock

    BattleFriends !!! Do you guys imagine playing the classic in a songpop-like style (turn based). Can't wait and for me - a must have !!!

  • Deixa

    Ever since the iPhone 5 came out there has been some dead releases. Every week we see pretty much the same thing over and over.

  • E_7

    Sky Gamblers: Storm Raiders is also out, and surprise surprise, NOT a scam.

  • witedahlia

    Prevail, and ocean horn. Where you at?

  • Jacob Gehman

    I'll probably take a leap of faith that the Jet Set Radio port doesn't feel too clunky on iOS. I have fond memories of that from the good ol' days...

  • presto77

    Omg JSR is so good! I've been dying for a game this goo on IOS
