It's Wednesday again, and here we are with another load of new games. Like last week, the haul is significantly less than average, but that's just sort of in line with how incredibly slow Q1 has been in iOS after everyone and their grandmother released their game(s) over the holidays. Anyway, look forward to this stuff at 11:00 PM Eastern.

After Burner Climax, $2.99 - Forum Thread - The Afterburner series has a ton of pedigree behind it, and I think we're all totally stoked to see it on iOS. We're planning on doing a TA Plays of this tomorrow if you want to wait for that before committing to the download.

Be Together, 99¢ - Forum Thread - It's another super cute physics-centric puzzle game from Chillingo with a three star system and 60 included levels.

Mzl oswrhoox 480x480 75

Krashlander - Forum Thread - I'm really digging the simplistic art style of this game. Check out the thread in the forums, the word on the street is it's pretty difficult.

Metal Slug 2, $3.99 - Forum Thread - While $3.99 might seem steep for an arcade shooter like this, consider if you ever actually played it in arcades I'm not sure you could get through the first few levels on less than four bucks in quarters.

Pinwar, $1.99 - Forum Thread - A multiplayer pinball game, complete with a table editor and two player single device capabilities. That's always a ton of fun.

Roar Rampage, 99¢ - Forum Thread - If punching things as a giant monster is your thing, boy, do I have the game for you.

  • Psiufoxx

    This week looks..... great.

  • Gauloises

    Nothing Special! Waiting for Oceanhorn, Real Racing 3 and Nimble Quest, Star Command, Hatch and always nothin Happen! 🙁

    • Adam Simpson

      Hey, where do you get news on up and coming games? The ones you listed look fun.

      • Gauloises

        Just from here and there always keep watchin the Iphone News!! Hehe

      • Wikilix

        In the upcoming iPhone games section. That's what I do.

  • Celstra

    Complete and utter garbage just like last week..

    • MidianGTX

      Which is more than I can say for the quality of the comments!

    • classicrockme

      This is why the Toucharcade app needs a dislike option.

      • ttocs

        That really wouldn't serve any constructive purpose.

      • Wikilix

        It would hurt feelings... Not constructive but satisfying.

  • oooooomonkey

    Roar rampage and krashlander for me this week.

  • Erpiotta5

    Where is 2013:infected wars??????chaos domain???any notice????

    • MidianGTX

      You keep posting this as though TA have missed something. I'm guessing what you're actually asking is "when are these games coming out?" and not "why aren't they in the list?". I've never heard of them anyway, but if they're upcoming, try posting in their respective forum threads? Your chances of getting an answer here are far lower.

  • th1nk

    why metal slug 2 instead of X?

  • Alc819

    Worst. Week. Ever.

    • MidianGTX

      Over. Used. Catchphrase.

      • Alc819

        Do u have anything constructive to add beside non-funny sarcastic comments? Otherwise be on ur way.

      • classicrockme

        Are you talking to yourself?

  • armilla

    What a disappointment.

  • ImJPaul

    Wow!!! All of these games look incredible.....said nobody ever.

  • Brian Boulnois

    so whats good coming out this week then? 😉 (note good....)

    • ExcaliburEdge

      After Burner turns out to be the 2nd most disappointing climax.

  • bigred447uk

    I have a to do list for poor Wednesdays. Not saying that this is particularly poor from my pov. I'm looking forward to the Afterburner game for some fast paced arcade fun on the peasant-wagon on the way to the workhouse tomorrow.

    I hope I don't lose an arm in the heavily neglected machinery tomorrow before my brief unpaid lunch half hour !

    Anyway my to do list so far is :-

    1/ Play the Ranger class for the first time in Heroes & Castles after spending the days since the update on the frankly bizarre but fun Mage.

    2/ Work out the best rogue like for IPhone and trying a new genre for me. Currently thinking 100 Rogues but suggestions gratefully accepted !

    • SirFobos

      100 rouges has been on my phone for almost two years. Check out dungelot too its new and a lil different style.

    • thiefwriter

      100 Rogues is a good starter. I hate all the IAP though.

    • tannerdactyl

      Zaga-33 is my favorite roguelike on iOS. It's a distillation of the core elements of the genre. Also worth checking out is Sword of Fargoal.

      • Jacob Gehman

        Sword of Fargoal is my go-to for the genre.

  • toxiccheese

    No endless runner??? Gameloft and chillingo are letting mr down. 🙁

    Also, I'm already Metal Slug 2 on Gridlee.

    • toxiccheese

      I can't type for $h%* today!

    • Wikilix

      Ditto on that MS2

    • BulkSlash

      Yeah the timing of Metal Slug 2 is pretty unfortunate given we've just had Gridlee. I bought the app anyway as I don't want the developers to miss out.

      That said, I'll probably just play it on Gridlee as from the looks of things the standalone app doesn't support the 8-bitty.

  • Professionalbum

    Pinwar is an instabuy for me

  • Mekklesack

    Pedi-what? I want this game, but you're really killing the vibe.

  • Shellcore

    No buys this week. May put Afterburner on my watch list.

  • Jacob007

    No buys this week, saving up cash for RR3 and some other games in the upcoming months!

  • TheCrib

    Roar Rampage will be mine !

    After Burner Climax isn't looking right though.
    There are alternatives with better gfx out there 😉

  • natedogg213

    Eli loves the cock

  • natedogg213


  • Sojourn

    Pinwar seems like a neat concept -- will probably pick that up tonight!

  • Georald Camposano

    Got After Burner on my ps3. That screenshot looks pretty damn terrible in comparison. Hopefully it still runs at 60fps
