We told you it was going to be a weird release week what with the Thanksgiving holiday and whatnot. And it was weird, but that doesn't mean there wasn't a lot of interesting-looking new games to check out. Tonight's post covers everything we could find that looked at least somewhat decent which wasn't covered in last night's new release post. Many of these games came out at weird times after 11pm EST last night, so they've been out for quite some time and forum impressions are fairly plentiful if you're looking for what people seem to think about some of these new games.

  • blackout845

    Terrible week

    • Th3R3n3gad3

      Yup.

    • WarMachine

      Skulls of the Shogun. Unless you're not into strategy games.

  • ImJPaul

    Welp. There's always next week.

  • christopherrocs

    Just a shocking week. But soon we get brothers in arms 3 and gta San Andreas so I'm really pumped for that. The only game I downloaded this week was some vampire werewolf thing, and it's not bad so far. Just waiting for eternity warriors 3 to work really

  • thecool111

    Finally there is Papa Pear Saga, everything else doesn't look good.

  • HansKaosu

    WTF guys.. Skull of the shogun is a console game- you better buy it

  • thecool111

    There is also Monopoly Slots.

  • raviadso

    Skulls is a GoTY contender. Seriously.

  • Sebastian Gomez

    For the first time, I'm glad I don't have any money left in my iTunes account :I'mPoor:

  • Ramaz1234

    Ugh this week sux

    • raviadso

      Maybe it's your spoiled backside that is the one sucking?

  • PsYcHoNoVa

    Weak week.

  • Ramaz1234

    It's ok though because both Junk Jack x and Badland got updates today (;

  • bluspacecow

    How many people here missed the "Part 2" part ?

    Don't judge this weeks release by this post alone. There is another post here with the rest of the releases TA covered.

    Check out that post particular the word of other releases in the comments section.

    It's not a weak week :)

    • Jake7905

      I think we've all been spoiled by the embarrassment of riches in games released recently. I definitely saw part 1, but still didn't get that excited, no instabuy's for me this week.

    • themostunclean

      First post was a disappointment too. Only thing I downloaded this week was the soft-launch of AB Go with my NZ account.

      • rabidnz

        Then who the hell would take your idea of a good week with a grain of salt, if skulls is released but you only download angry birds, are you 8?

      • themostunclean

        I didn't want to get into my reasons for downloading Go to avoid an overly long post but since you're being such a d*ck about it, I got it because I was feeling nostalgic for Mario Kart. I didn't even state an opinion of the game anyway- it's not very good. And I don't really care if anyone takes my opinion for anything, especially a jerk like you.

      • bluspacecow

        Hey now. No need to be insulting just because someone doesn't agree with you.

      • themostunclean

        Some of the most vile and obnoxious people tend to post on video game sites, TA used to be a bit of an exception but we see more and more of what I like to call "part of the problem people" on here every day. Thank you for being in the "part of the solution people" group :-)

  • Taclys

    Hey, a doctor who app! That's sorta interesting

    • DannyTheElite

      It's a cheap clone of marvel puzzle quest.

      • curtisrshideler

        Without any timers. It's pretty good actually! Good story too.

  • lanights

    Skulls & Icycle are best of the week, IMO.

    • PallaZ

      You are absolutely right

    • raviadso

      Burn the rope is also fantastic. Not my thing, but a great game the wife loves.

  • Scarbir

    Not a terrible week, with The Inner World, Icycle and Skulls of the Shogun. Just a terrible thursday.

  • Pete Osborne

    Not much I can add, just a few others popped up and a couple from yesterday that didn't get mentioned but still deserve attention:

    Hurricane Rush (Free) Falling racer, guide your ball through the centre of a hurricane avoiding all sorts of stuff. I smiled the whole time, it's absolutely mental and the multiplayer option shouts drinking nights!

    Command Crisis: Callsign (69p Free version available) Shmup that starts very slow-paced until you level up your weapons a minute in. Very enjoyable, features endless modes and randomised missions

    Chicken Nugget (69p Free version available) A nice one-man retro bullet hell endless shmup. Responsive controls and lots of character. Could do with updates adding variety but nice nonetheless

    Cuebox: 3D Pool (£1,49) Pool in a gravity-less, cube with pockets in each corner. Could be incredible, could be the most frustrating thing ever. Looks very polished though

    Little Strawhair's World 2 (Free) Mario-esque with level-based challenges. A little floaty and the ads can annoy but it's getting positives in the forum

    Windsquire (Free) Very good level-based vertical racer, inobtrusive ads, fast and frantic. Greatly recommended.

    Puzzle Realms (Free - 69p IAP unlock) Picross set in a Zelda-type adventure. Well written, looks nice and unlimited random puzzles. I love it.

  • bigjack66

    Another rubbish week! Roll on San Andreas!

    • raviadso

      You seriously came to post to call a bunch of games you haven't played crap?

  • The Gamer Dude

    Where's the beef? Looks like I'll be playing PS3 this thanksgiving.

  • Papa Deuce

    Game of the week is?

    • raviadso

      Skulls of shogun is the best.
      Icycle is the cutest and most innovative.
      Burn the rope is from a beloved franchise

      So.. It'll be the one that has paid advertising on TA.

  • themostunclean

    Any game that uses the term "fast paced" in its description is an automatic skip for me. Unfortunately that describes almost half of the games here.

  • NinjaKitteh

    The Doctor Who game looks pretty interesting. I mean it's puzzle quest meets the Doctor. How can you go wrong with that combo.

  • jdmorg

    I'm not spending another app cent until I can actually play King's League. GOTW! Still crashes within a min every single time! Been long enough! I want my $ refunded! Refund or never spend money again!

    • ste86uk

      Nobody will care if you don't spend. But generally I ask apple and get a refund anyway.
