While the rest of the world is focusing on how mad the New Zealand, Australian, and Canadian release of Real Racing 3 is making them, there's actually a whole load of other games coming tonight which you may find to be less offensive. If you're in any of those regions (or have accounts in them), I still highly recommend giving RR3 a spin, regardless. Like previous weeks, all of these new games should land at 11:00 PM Eastern, or potentially way earlier if you're not in the USA.

Crazy Ox, Free - Forum Thread - Developer Xu Chunyu is expanding on the endless fill in the blank genre with an endless stampeder, which apparently is a thing now. Either way, it's free, and looks silly enough to try.


Die Hard, 99¢ - Forum Thread - Extremely, extremely cautiously optimistic about this game. It'll either be good, or it'll be a... movie game.


Mzl ghczijde 480x480 75

Flick Champions Winter Sports, 99¢ - Forum Thread - A (as the name implies) entirely flick-powered sports game, themed around eighteen cups across six different winter events.


Mzl cwshxkla 480x480 75

Hackeycat, 99¢ - Forum Thread - Do you like cats? Do you like jacky sack? What if you combined cats and jacky sack?


Mzl klpxyvgn 640x960 75

I, Gladiator, $4.99 - Forum Thread - Per the app description, "real 3D gladiatorial combat at its finest." Hey, there's lions.

Jool, 99¢ - Forum Thread - A cool looking platformed game with the gimmick of being able to flip your device around to control two different characters. Sounds neat.


Mzl ihquvjcx 640x960 75

Lego Galaxy Squad Bug Battle, Free - Forum Thread - Another entry in the Lego universe that makes me feel super old for not recognizing. If you've got kids into this, it's free.


Mzl pdyinraw 640x960 75

Little Luna, Free - Forum Thread - A free student-made game that uses the Unreal engine for an entirely narrated point and click adventure-y game.

Puzzle Restorer, 99¢ - Forum Thread - A really slick looking puzzle game that involves fixing pixel art using limited numbers of brush strokes.


Mzl tmtawhwh 480x480 75

Redneck Revenge: A Zombie Roadtrip, 99¢ - Forum Thread - Amused by redneck humor? Like killing zombies? Well, Bulkypix has the game for you.


Mzl tddwcofq 480x480 75

Relic Rush, 99¢ - Forum Thread - A one-touch controlled adventure game by Forest Moon, with pixel art and chip tunes. I'm definitely getting a strong Last Rocket vibe from this.

Rock Runners, 99¢ - Forum Thread - A runner from Chillingo with 140 different levels filled with gems, upgrades, and other unlockables.

Selena the Space Pirate, $1.99 - Forum Thread - Crazy about bullet hell style shooters? Here's a game you need to check out.

  • Chaz42

    Jool has been out. I got it yesterday...

  • thesidewaystable

    Anything worth picking up?

  • JRaynor

    The same with I, Gladiator looks interisting but the website in the itunes page gets you some malware site saids chrome, the official page doesn't open, as well it have dual currencies

    The only thing that works is there facebook page, thought the games looks real good i give will give it that

  • JJE McManus

    You can just feel the air being sucked out of the room by RR3. Mostly another week of me-too games but Gladiators has the distinction of being little more than sweaty man blood porn.

    • Schutzenegger

      Sweaty man blood porn could be a sweet band name...

      • JJE McManus

        I'm so there

  • subshell001

    jacky sack sounds like the most terrible porn site ever conceived

    • caaalrb

      Brb, registering domain

    • Karzay

      Did he mean "hacky sack" or is "jacky sack" a real thing?

      • rodgerodger

        I assume he meant "hacky", though he did manage to mistype it as "jacky" more than once...

      • toxiccheese

        Jacky sack can't be right. But they also used the word twice... So I'm guessing its lack of knowledge or something I've never heard of.

  • ImJPaul

    I've been excited for Jool. The rest of it, I will sit back and wait. Currently running through Ghost Trick again so I'll even have an urge to play any of these games.

    • kirby83

      loved Ghost Trick. waiting for Phoenix Wright HD now.

      • ImJPaul

        Aren't we all. :-(

  • Doctor U

    You forgot to add Star Command.... Oh, wait...

    • ImJPaul

      Soon grasshopper.

  • DannyTheElite

    Another flick champions game :)
    A small joy to counter the disappointment of Real racing 3

  • PureRumble

    Is it just me or is ios gaming in free fall decline? Virtually every noticeable title lately has been nothing but crap, and the big titles we've looked forward to have either been laid down or been seduced by the lucrative business of pay-to-win

    Or prove me wrong; type some titles u are looking forward to and tell me why...

    • bigred447uk

      Apart from Heroes and Castles and QuestLord this year has been a poor yield so far for my tastes.

      Luckily QuestLord turned me on to Quest Gold Edition which I'm ashamed to admit I've ignored since 2009 despite being part of the IOS family since IPhone 3G !

      Any RPG fan letdown by the depth of Ravensword 2 should buy the Quest now if they can handle turn based.

      Sorry for off topic. I'll keep track of this article to see if that RPG looking game with the ladders gets good comments. Sry forgot the name.

      • decabao

        Badland and Year Walk.
        Watch the trailers, you'll understand.
        Aaaand these are def no freemiums

      • decabao

        Whoops, wrong reply : D

      • LearnIIBurn

        QuestLord looks great! Thanks for the recommend. I've been enjoying Heroes and Castles a ton.

    • KenGriffeyIII

      I've been playing Dungelot a bunch lately that's a pretty fun one. It's not for everybody but I'm diggin Pixel People as well. I think 2013 has been off to a slow start but I dunno about a "free fall decline". This Thursday lineup looks pretty bad though.

    • rodgerodger

      Releases are quieter lately, but Q1 is generally quiet on every platform. Between Joe Danger and Clash of Heroes I've had enough to play. Still, I hope last fall wasn't the top of the mountain for iOS games. I'm sure it will pick up again in a month or so.

    • subshell001

      Frozen Synapse. I'm in the beta and the latest one was really smooth, they just have a few UI tweaks to make. Next beta apparently is going to be the last one.

    • SyKot

      On the bright side, my backlog isn't increasing faster than my checked games.

    • Jeff432

      I agree with you. Last fall was a lot more lame in my opinion than the fall of 2012.

      One of the biggest games that I like was the Gangstar series, but Gameloft discontinued the series. I greatly prefer the Gangstar series over Rockstar's GTA ports. Even Gangstar Rio from 2011 is more fun to play than Vice City on my iPhone 5.

    • vic_viper_001

      Nope, I'd say that's about right. I really can't think of a single decent game that's on the horizon. It's not all bad though, I had a bit of an addiction before, but it's no longer a problem now.

    • http://twitter.com/UnicornCakes Elle Wong

      Dungeons of Dredmor

      FTL

      Legend of Grimrock

  • thesidewaystable

    Badland looks amazing

  • ttocs

    Is rr3 coming out for us tonight?

    • http://www.toucharcade.com Eric Ford

      Assuming you mean US, it's coming out next week.

  • thesidewaystable

    RR3 comes out 28 us

    • ttocs

      Ah. Darn. Didn't realize.

  • MidianGTX

    I, Gladiator could have been lifted straight out of an N64 judging by that screenshot.

  • Jan Jørgensen

    I really look forward to Sela The Space Pirate!

  • hajjos

    No capsized+ ? :(

    • ImJPaul

      They pulled it from the store. Must have been one of those "accidental releases" that seem to be happening more regularly. Supposedly, it's coming back as a (you guessed it) freemium title. I'll def try it out though. Really looking forward to it. So mad at myself for missing the window. :-(

  • natedogg213

    Another slow week...Goddamn it Hodapp, step it up

    • laxking97

      Yeah Hodapp, quit slaking and make more games

      • John Sadowski

        Right? Probably off playing jacky sack. Quit slaking!

  • JamesLogan

    Die Hard for me, don't think it will be any good but as a movie Buff .99 is worth it just to try.

  • toxiccheese

    Only thing I want is Capsized+. Wonder why it didn't make the list?

    • natedogg213

      What does the + entail? I've played capsized on PC

  • Jeff432

    What's the reason for releasing RR3 in only 3 countries at launch instead of releasing it in almost all of the major countries at launch?

    • ImJPaul

      They do it with a lot of games. It's like a giant beta test. They send them out to smaller countries to see what the people have to say (bugs, opinions, suggestions ect.)

    • PureRumble

      Think guinea pigs

  • Drewskii

    Why won't Capcom show us the Valentine's Day love and release the Ace Attorney Trilogy?
