Hey, it's Wednesday again. The second Wednesday of the new year, which thankfully, is bringing us a few more games than last week. We're still not back up to 100% of crazy nights of releases, but I feel like this is a good sign that more than three noteworthy games are out tonight. As usual, these will be available everywhere by 11:00 PM Eastern.

The Blockheads, Free - Forum Thread - Imagine Minecraft, but set in a 2.5D world. We've spent some time with the game, and I'd go as far as to say due to the control limitations of iOS devices that this might almost be a better Minecraft than the actual real Minecraft.

Death Golf, 99¢ - Forum Thread - Golf games, especially of the miniature variety, always have been a lot of fun on iOS devices. This one seems to have an almost Mutant League flavor, if anyone remembers those series of games.


I Am Vegend: Zombiegeddon, $1.99 / Free - Forum Thread - A castle defense game of sorts, with a premise that seems totally crazy. It comes in a free variety as well as a "premium" version which comes with everything unlocked versus eventually hitting a pay wall.

Joe Danger, $2.99 - Forum Thread - Another one of those bike jumping games, but this one looks awesome. Lots of folks have been talking about this game, and I'm really excited for it.

Little Amazon, Free - Forum Thread - A free platformed from BulkyPix, seems worth checking out especially for the price.

Take My Machete, Free - Forum Thread - A side scrolling slicing game, complete with a story mode and endless mode for your slicing pleasure.

Wake The Cat, 99¢ - Forum Thread - We're really scraping the bottom of the barrel for things to do in puzzle games. In this one, you wake up cats. I can feel a Jared stirring in the distance...

Zenonia 5, Free - Forum Thread - The Zenonia series is back, in its fifth iteration. This one is free to play, but these sort of action RPGs hinge on grinding anyway so it's debatable whether that's a good thing or a bad thing.

    "60 levels of cat waking fun". Only 60??

  • Jerutix

    You should add Time Surfer, even though it came out today (or yesterday). It's fantastic!

    • Jerutix

      Nvm. Didn't see the TA Plays video.

  • TGMzero

    Played Zenonia 5 on my Droid DNA.

    It sucks.

    The way Gamevil pushes IAP has gone overboard.

    SkiFree ("SkeeFree") and Rodent's Revenge just came out, also, for those who like their iOS a little more Windows 3.1-y.

  • ImJPaul

    That minecraft comment will be blasphemy to some and maybe the fact that I didn't capitalize the "m" in minecraft. We'll see I guess.

    • Bool Zero

      Blasphemy! It is written as "Minecraft" not minecraft! How dare you all defame gamings blocky god of goodness!
      ...did I do it right?

  • toxiccheese

    I foresee danger and cats in my future...

  • GaussEX

    Ooo I'm liking Z5... Though I hope the controls will be much more responsive than Z4.. Which was nice graphics but very tiresome to play

    I liked zenonia 1-3, but four was such a disappointment to me, that I don't even feel like bothering with five. I'll probably eventually check it out, but I don't have high hopes for it.

    Personally I am much more of a fan of Terraria and it's clone, Junk Jack, than I am of Minecraft, so a 2D Minecraft sounds interesting. But I'm hesitant to get it because being a Freemium title, pay walls on the building would really ruin a building/survival game. Especially when we already have full payware titles such ask Minecraft and Junk Jack on iOS to play that don't require IAPs to enjoy.

    • Gamer_Kev

      Thought I'd add, that I just found out that Little Amazon supports both arcade controls and Apple TV. Even though I'm not a huge fan of freemium, I'm going to check this one out since I have both an iCade and an Apple TV. I use my Apple TV mostly for movies and shows I've purchased or rented from iTunes, but though you can mirror just about any game on it, it's not too often you see a game that actually supports it.

    • themostunclean

      Neither Minecraft nor Terraria could ever hold my interest, I was dumbfounded by the immense popularity. For whatever reason Junk Jack is just perfect in every way to me though. I finally gave it a chance a few weeks back and firmly addicted.

      • MidianGTX

        Says more about you than it does the games if you're dumbfounded by freedom and creativity.

  • MrSHakerEsq

    I'm totally pumped for this. It's like Christmas every Thursday morning and this week Santa has delivered.

    Wonderful collection here! Particularly, Blockheads sits right on top, aptly!

  • Zephram

    Sorry for being off-topic but I just found out about "Space Agency" from Pocket Tactics website, this thing is really fun. It's been out for at least a couple of months, and deserves alot more attention IMO. And no I am not affiliated with the developers in any way.
