It's Wednesday night again, and if you follow the iOS gaming scene then you know exactly what that means: tons of new games. Games that have been scheduled for release on Thursday have been launching in App Stores all across the world as their various time zones strike midnight, and for us here in the US that time is… now! For my money I think Zombie Highway: Driver's Ed might be the pick of the week, as it's a great spinoff of the original with some cool new ideas that will likely make it into the sequel sometime down the road. Also Giant Boulder of Death is from Adult Swim and Pik Pok, a team-up that always brings the goods, and Mecho Wars HD is a refreshed release of one of my favorite iOS turn-based strategy games.

Zombie Typomaniac

iTunes Description

An entertaining take on the horror shooting genre, Zombie Typomaniac is a quick-play arcade game, which pitches a player's typing skills and quick reflexes against hordes of offbeat zombies.

In this compelling (spelling) test of nerves and skill, the player's goal is to rid the town of its zombie infestation once and for all. Help comes courtesy of a variety of bonus health and weapon drops, but when the horde is bearing down it's the player's fast fingers which bring the firepower.

    I wish I was a little bit taller,

    • divinggirls

      You wish ur taller? I am 5' 4', i wish to be atleast 5' 7'.

      • handycapman

        Ya I'm only like 6'1"

      • habitablejam3

        Lol I'm 5' 8

      • handycapman

        I wonder what the average height of TA readers actually is. Hmmm... Most interesting

      • somedumbgamer

        I think petite girls are super sexy!

      • ShadowCube

        I'm legit 6'7 tall

    • Bool Zero

      Wish you were a baller? Wish you a girl that you knew so you could call her?...

        Wish you had a girl with a curl? Can't remember, last time I heard it I was a kid.

    • Kane

      I'm 7 feet tall 326 pounds

  • Reignmaker

    Whelp, I guess every week can't be as epic as last week's releases. No matter, Junk Jack X still has my undivided attention.

    • divinggirls

      Junk jack feels clunky compared to terraria.

      • wojovox

        As a player of both as well, I cannot understand how you reached this conclusion. Love Terraria; it's a fantastic port, but that's it, it's a port; the touchscreen controls work superbly, but JJX takes the cake on fluidity of movement.

        Both games are beyound awesome for a mobile device, but I agree with TouchArcade's decision last week to give JJX 'game of the week'.

      • Taclys

        I bought both, and had to put Terreria down. The fighting controls are just not good enough to take down bosses, in my gameplay. I much prefer tapping on a target, than swinging my sword around.

      • Ben Norvell

        You really prefer tapping repeatedly on an object over and over again in order to use your tool on an object? Terraria's controls are much better.

      • valkuryn

        Use the hold to break option in JJX options. Problem solved.

      • Trickoy

        Not really. Able to defeat Wall of Flesh using a Phoenix Blaster with Necro Armor. Terraria's really nice, wish they'd put up Hardcore on an update and generate bigger maps.

      • Th3R3n3gad3

        Yeah.

      • Reignmaker

        Uh huh. And Kim Kardashian feels clunky compared to Rosie O'Donnell. I get it.

      • shadax

        What?! You're insane. JJ is so easy to control and terraria has the clunkiest sword control I couldn't bear to play it on mobile.

  • FRnchFRy

    Not too exciting....might try battle camp because its free but for that reason only. New zombies seems repetitive. Don't like bombcats and don't understand the new adult swim game lol

  • MisterMiracle

    Meh week for me too. Which is fine since I've only just reached the 2nd planet in Junk Jack X. The amount of content is overwhelming!

  • worldcitizen1919

    The last month has been really bad for games I like. No really big releases and most of the stuff that's been released is for 5 yr olds.

  • shadax

    Four pics one movie is horrid in its design.

  • Trickoy

    Still rooting for SR:R to come out *sigh*
