Like, well, every week, there's oodles of iOS games that are now available for download in the New Zealand App Store. iTunes works in geographic regions, so, these games will slowly become available across the world as it gets closer to Thursday in your neck of the woods. For US iTunes accounts, this means 11:00 PM Eastern.

We're going to be doing first looks throughout the day before our "Out Now" post hits at 11:00 PM Eastern with all the games as they're available, but here's a quick and dirty look at the games that are coming in the meantime along with their associated forum threads:

  • Bool Zero

    Ooh, a lot I didn't even know about! Nice post guys!

  • handycapman

    This article makes me happy. Rymdkapsle AND puddle? Ohhhh yeahhhh. Oh oh yeah. *chicka-chickahhhh!!!

  • rnarvin

    Finally, a week that I actually am interested in more than one game!

    • InkyTheGhost

      Agreed. Gonna be an expensive week, I'll probably pick up almost half the games listed. I love these heads up posts - I'd only been aware of Rymdkapsel and Pivot.

  • Gabriel.Voyager

    If only there was one, only one, decent...

    • bluspacecow

      You want Knightmare Tower.

      Oh yes you do.

  • Ricardo de Zoete

    Phew! We (Creators of An Alien with a Magnet) have a lot of competition! A lot of great games tho!

  • one.sixty.four

    i can't wait for tonight! looks like great week!

  • lanights

    Oh man, my weakness for racers on my iPad! Come to me oh ye Muscle Run!

  • garret44


  • B30

    Muscle Run, a great looking racing game, and it's not from EA, yay!

  • ImJPaul

    Been looking forward to Knightmare Tower since it was announced. Now of only PVZ2 would release worldwide. Idk if I speak for all Americans but I'm pretty antsy.

  • cofunguy

    Nothing even remotely interesting....

  • Marley Listmann

    This week is more quantity over quality, most of these are just re-skins of other basic concepts... I may get Muscle Run, Paradox Factor and Puddle. I am Disappointed in the fact that Asphalt 8 isn't coming out yet, nor PVZ 2.

    • cowtruck123

      Asphalt 8 should be out next week (August 8th) saw it somewhere online....

    Is this list for New Releases only or Big Updates as well? We just released a Big Update for Blaster X HD last night too in case Touch Arcade missed it. 🙂

    • cowtruck123

      Just new releases

  • Flare_TM

    Love these heads-up posts, KUTGW TA/Eli/Brad/Jared!

  • Nick

    Not too much, but I think Knightmare, Paradox, Dropchord and maybe An Alien even though it's been done a bazillion times before.

    I hope DC is good, I love Doublefine, but I can't see how this is going to be a huge success for them, it's VERY niche.
