We were pleasantly surprised by just how many games were released last week, given that Infinity Blade III, Angry Birds Star Wars II, iOS 7 and new iPhones all launched last week as well. That's a heck of a lot of big news items that could potentially steal the thunder from any game's launch. However, it goes beyond that, because after Wednesday night games just kept on releasing. Rather than being a light launch week with all the goings on, it turned out to be one of the biggest release weeks in recent memory. Crazy. Anyway, here's yet another Out Now post rounding up the games that came later in the week or otherwise slipped through the cracks. Don't be confused: it's not Wednesday! We'll have another release list like we normally do this coming Wednesday, but in the meantime feel free to check out the games that might have snuck past you during what was a crazy week last week.

That’s right, “the greatest quiz-show game ever made” according to The Onion’s A.V. Club can now be played as it was meant to be played: with friends, on your couch, with several pizzas, and beverages scattered about, and a rabbit that snuck in, and some work-release prisoners in the audience, with soothing jazz playing in the background, and the scent of vanilla coriander cinnamon candles in the air, while everyone wears those inflatable sumo wrestler costumes. Or… however you like to party. That’s just a suggestion.

  • Zeldaniac

    So...much...free...

    • ZarieoZ

      Yeah :-(

    • Reignmaker

      I've been enjoying Deer Hunter. Relaxing. Not overly in-your-face with the ads. And the IAPs are entirely optional.

    • mavx

      Free doesn't automatically mean bad or bogged down by terrible IAPs. Reaper for instance, is free to play the first few levels with 3 simple IAP options (you only have to choose one) to buy the full game. Games that are just IAP sinkholes have really ruined the market for games that use it moderately.

      • Zeldaniac

        True, not all free games are bad. It's just sad to see that enough of the people driving the market are such cheapskates that over 50% of a week's releases don't cost a dime.

      • Jake7905

        Sad but true.

  • Guest

    Help Me Fly was released and it rocks ($0.99, no IAP, great gameplay)

  • DCver3

    I think this person bit the porcelain as a kid!

  • DCver3

    Having fun yet Jared?

  • DCver3

    TOO MANY FREE GAMES

  • DCver3

    Bah-weep-graaaaagnah wheep nini bong.

  • the fish

    Do the people developing these free games get something from apple for just downloading them?
    I get a lot of them and check if they hook me after ten minutes or so. If not, I delete them again...

    • mavx

      Some developers choose to make the game a free download to remove the barrier to entry. Most are either supported by ads, IAP, or offer to unlock the full game after the player gets to try it to see if they like it.

  • DCver3

    Bah-weep-graaaaagnah wheep nini bong.

  • DCver3

    Universal greeting bitches!

  • DCver3

    This site avoids the truth of its lame rating system.

  • DCver3

    They erase anyone who makes a solid logical argument.

  • DCver3

    All of there responses are political drivel. Side stepping misdirection.

  • DCver3

    It's a shame they can't discuss it in one of their weekend op ed pieces.

  • DCver3

    Names of commenters who bring up the fallacious nature of the ratings system are:
    themostunclean, lepke, Protoman, that cheetah guy (sorry don't remember your name), Karzay, and many other prominent posters. Yet this site doesn't care.

  • DCver3

    Today is the day WE TAKE BACK OUR RATINGS!

  • DCver3

    Still can't block me Jared. Must be frustrating.

  • DCver3

    Jambi the genie says buckle up for better rating system.

  • DCver3

    At this point you'd think you'd just leave my stupid comments up.

  • DCver3

    I suppose though, sitting at a computer jerking off to animal porn while moderating gives you plenty of free time dealing with me. Must be nice not having an actual productive job.

  • DCver3

    I see you've given up at the old story comments section. Ill just stay here and piss you off b.

  • DCver3

    Your lucky I don't hack your twitter. lmao

  • DCver3

    Still can't block me huh?

  • DCver3

    Lol I suppose I could move onto more important parts of your site. Try to crash this puppy.

  • DCver3

    Bah-weep-graaaaagnah wheep nini bong.

  • WarMachine

    Reaper is a great game. It's not freemium, it's a trail game where you unlock the rest of the game at a certain level. Reaper is definitely better than most of the iOS crap on the AppStore. Give that game a try if anything.

  • lordyokomoto

    Give it up freak

  • lordyokomoto

    Dc nobody forces you to use this app... If it's much of a problem for you delete it ;)

  • IMNS

    So many games in the last week and so few TA Plays? Get off your lazy asses and start pumping out those vids. These games aren't gonna play themselves jared!

  • phonecats

    Please me more critical of gameloft completely ripping off games.

    This is some serious BS and everyone lets it slide.

    Every time they get 5 stars someone creative gives up.

    Or just make Indie Movie 2 about gameloft and Zynga.

  • shaver

    That puzzlebits Tetris-y game is pretty good!

  • Cheby

    Help Me Fly was release this week, a really fun puzzle game that's $0.99 and no IAP/BS

    • TreeHouse

      We heard you the first time. Maybe try advertising it where other devs do and it will get more/better attention.
