It has to be official by now, Wednesday nights are the best time of the week to be an iOS gamer. For less than you'd spend going out to dinner you can load your iPhone (or iPad) up with all sorts of cool new stuff- And we've got some cool stuff this week. *cough* Mikey Hooks *cough*

Amateur Surgeon 3

Screen568x568

First Look: Better With Friends: 'Amateur Surgeon 3' Hits Tonight

Amateur Surgeon 3's app description asks an important question: have you ever wanted to operate on a mutant bear with a chainsaw? If you're unfamiliar with the series, I think that should give you a pretty decent idea of what to expect from it. Amateur Surgeon is a whacky, and mostly insane surgery game that tasks users with sawing open patients and removing what ails them ... with bloody tongs. Or with the help of a friendly dog that, somehow, has the power to give your patients health if they start crashing.

Mikey Hooks

First Look: 'Mikey Hooks' is a Swinging Sequel to an iOS Platforming Classic

There's a bunch of cool games coming out tonight, but my pick for the no-brainer download of the week is easy: Mikey Hooks. I've been anxiously awaiting BeaverTap's Mikey Shorts follow-up since it was unveiled earlier this year, and it's been more than worth the wait as Mikey Hooks delivers everything you could ever want in a sequel to one of iOS's best platformers.

NFL Pro 2014 : The Ultimate Football Simulation

Screen480x480 1

First Look: Only Game In Town (For Now): 'NFL Pro Football 2014: The Ultimate Simulation' Releases

For the most part, this update seems to try to tackle the various graphical oddities of last year's game, but the update also added the 2014 Superbowl to the Season mode and it allows for users to learn and edit over 200 different plays.

The unfortunate side of this? You won't see real players or get to play as your favorite rookies -- Gameloft still hasn't secured the rights to names, it seems.

Trial by Survival

Screen568x568 6

First Look: You Only Live Once: 'Trial By Survival' To Take Perma-Death To Dual-Stick Shooting

Perma-death is a mechanic that you usually only see in rogue-likes, which is a big part of the reason why dual-stick shooter Trial By Survival is kinda blowing our collective hair back. It's uses perma-death, too, except it wraps that mechanic into a high-octane fire, bomb, and bullet-fest across a wasteland. The levels are procedurally generated, and the loot? It's from real players that have died.

Worms 3

Screen568x568 7

First Look: Incoming! 'Worms 3' Hits the App Store Tonight

Last year when Worms 2 Armageddon hit the App Store, we made mention that it felt a lot like Worms 1.5 in that they basically took the first game, added a few things, and slapped a "2" on the box. That's sort of true for Worms 3 as well, except this time around the feature list of new things feels far more substantial than previous installments.

  • Djacko

    Yuck.. might invest in The world ends with you this week after seeing these

  • bluspacecow

    Hmm When did Sheep Happens get released guys ? I can't find a thread on it.

    It looks new and is an endless runner so I'm surprised it's missing from this list.

    But then again I know you guys aren't perfect so .... go download it from the NZ iTunes store :P

    • bluspacecow

      Doesn't look like it's on the US iTunes store as yet. Could be a soft launch.

  • marc0313

    That's three weeks with nothing but Bloodmasque. Tis horrible.

    • mguniverse

      You should try Rock Paper Missiles.

  • iOSPeace

    When is Paramon coming out ? Can't find it on the App Store!

  • anabolicMike

    I want to try that trial by survival. I've been trying to download it for days. My Internet is wonky this week due to line changes so I only have LTE/3G. Who in their right mind decided to make a 50mb cap on downloads on cell networks? I want to slap them. It would be fine if you could turn that off but you can't! I have 6gb of data on this phone. I never use it! Give me that 61mb game. Sometimes I wonder why I left android phones. On yeah, huge phones with no stability. That's why. Lol
