Strap in for this, as tonight's onslaught of games is larger than we've seen in weeks. This haul of new titles includes some games we were expecting, some we weren't, some big name games, and awesome looking indie sleepers. They should all be on the App Store now in every region, so, go nuts downloading whatever you think looks cool.

An Alient with a Magnet

First Look: 'An Alien with a Magnet' is a Fun Game of Planet Hopping

Each level is a series of planets, and you'll start off on one of them and make your way to each until you reach an end goal. Touching the screen causes your alien to travel around the planet – they don't just spin on their own like the other games I mentioned. Another differentiating factor is that you don't launch straight off of one planet to another, rather you'll travel in the direction that the front of your craft is pointing when you release your touch, so there's a bit more strategy to the aiming when moving between planets.

Brick Roll

First Look: 'Brick Roll' is Never Gonna Give You Up, Never Gonna Let You Down

In Brick Roll you play as a tiny cube across 24 levels that are made up of blocky island-like platforms. Your cube moves on its own, at a pretty decent clip I might add, and you simply touch the left side of the screen to change which direction he moves and touch the right side of the screen to jump from platform to platform (or off into the nether if you aren't careful).

Dropchord

First Look: No Chord Is Safe: Double Fine's Music Game, 'DropChord,' Hits The App Store Tonight

It's a music and rhythm game that has you placing your fingers on glowing spheres and rotating the beam of light that emits from that connection around a circular track. The goal is to put your beam through other spheres while avoiding obstacles that interrupt the beam. The longer you go without a mistake, the higher your score. Of course, pulse-pounding music plays in the background, appearing to dictate the flow of the game.

Kid Tripp

First Look: 'Kid Tripp' is a Super Challenging, Super Satisfying Hybrid Platformer

[Kid Tripp] is a hybrid platformer, so your character runs on his own. However, running into parts of the environment doesn't hurt you, it merely stops your movement. It's kind of like playing Super Mario Bros. with the right direction of the d-pad held down the whole time, which is pretty much how I play anyway...
Controls are simple and elegant. Touch anywhere on the left side of the screen to jump, and anywhere on the right side to shoot. You can also hold down the shooting side to sprint, and holding down jump while bouncing off an enemy's head or a spring allows you to do an extra jump off of it. Those last two moves aren't explained in the game, but are crucial to mastering Kid Tripp's levels.

Knightmare Tower

In Knightmare Tower, you play as a knight on a mission to rocket up a seemingly endless tower, saving princesses, slashing enemies, and collecting coins along the way. As you soar upwards enemies approach from all around, and tapping the screen causes your knight to do a downward thrust with his trusty sword.

Pivvot

First Look: First Look at 'Pivvot', A Strategic Avoidance Game from the Creator of 'Polymer'

The way Pivvot works is you travel along a winding, maze-like track not totally unlike the twisty levels in Groove Coaster. Your actual character, if you can call it that, is a simple circle attached like a ball and chain to a center point that travels along the winding track. The radius from that center point to your circle is like a "safe zone", able to travel right through the stuff on the track that gets in your way.

Puddle

First Look: 'Puddle' Dripping Onto iOS Later Today, Insert Another Water Joke Here

Puddle is a physics-based ... almost puzzle-y game where you navigate a big glop of ooze through obstacles and eventually to an end goal. To give you a better idea, in the second mission, for instance, you're put in charge of pushing a puddle of water through a series of pipes while avoiding spots of heat that'll evaporate it. The faster you push the water through, the less likely it'll evaporate.

In the game, you play as a minion overlord tasked with creating a self-sufficient space base. The catch is that waves of laser-toting enemies pop out in intervals, threatening to wreck what you've managed to build. And, seriously, these guys aren't pushovers.

  • Apokalypso

    So many good games coming out at once, goodbye money

  • Seil

    Rymdkapsel has the Kid Tripp trailer in its section right now.

    Now to figure out which ones I'm going to pick up.

  • redkins54

    Ill do muscle run, the free war game, and if I'm feeling old school, kid trip. Kid trip kind of reminders me of Mario bros.

  • caaalrb

    I like how the screen cap for first person tennis is in 3rd person

    • dancj

      And it claims to be the first 1st person game ever - which is a bit of a huge claim considering they go back at least as far as the old Star Wars game which was back in something like 1980 n

      • caaalrb

        Pretty sure they meant it's the first 1st person tennis game. But since it's First Person Tennis 2, I'm assuming there was a first 1st person tennis...which kind of invalidates their claim.

        These are the things I think about when I can't sleep at night

  • Odulin

    Many good games this week. I'm gonna spend some money...

  • pxlpshr

    I bought them all to try out. I don't mind spending $20 a week on apps and additional funds on IAPs. I recall spending $200 a month in the 90s (I'm currently 25) on cartridge or DVD-based games. That's what they cost back then. I'm more satisfied with today's apps for a couple bucks - even if a great game loosens the purse for $60 in IAPs. I gladly bought the Usain Bolt unlock in Temple Run 2 to support the devs.

    I understand the vitriol regarding IAPs, but the market always corrects itself. Policing it won't work. And without free games people just pirate. At least IAPs give devs a fighting chance to collect revenue - even if EA with The Simpsons game collects $50 million in one month in IAPs.

  • toxiccheese

    Uh... where is the link for Jumping Jupingo?

    • pxlpshr

      Where is it? I can't find it in the App Store. Care to share a link?

    • pxlpshr

      Here's the statement from the dev: "I can't believe it's been more than a year since I last updated this blog. The development of this game has been an extraordinary experience. I am very happy with the way it's turned out but it's taken a lot longer than anticipated - a LOT longer. We have continued to refine the game and improve the controls. It's all done now (and has been for a couple of months now).

      We're going to go with Marmalade as our publisher. The game was developed with their software and we think there is mutual benefit in them promoting the game for us (and through this their excellent software). The game will be available on iOS and Android and will be in the Apple, Google, BlackBerry, Amazon, Nook and Windows stores.

      The game is in submission now so hopefully it will be available soon."

  • VA1N

    Nothing out of the ordinary for me this week. Might pick up one or two here and there when sales pop up but nothing is screaming at me right now.

  • AwesomeD6

    Gravity Falls Mystery Shack Attack also came out. It's a Disney game looks pretty cool.
