It's another Wednesday already, with another list of new iOS games releasing all across the globe. It's not exactly a massive list this week, but as always there's an interesting selection of stuff to choose from. Also, there's several titles that we know of that are waiting to launch until Friday, which is Valentine's Day, so expect another one of these release posts later in the week.

Update: Well, Card Wars - Adventure Time doesn't seem to be in the US App Store, so it's possible it's just a soft-launch for now. Bummer. We'll let you know if and when it pops up.


A Darker Shade of Red

darkerred

iTunes Description

A chick has gone missing, and Mulder is on the case. He arrives at the last place she was seen, a worn down motel. Will he solve the case, and find the missing chick? Only you can help him.

A Darker Shade of Red is a fully voiced, jazzy noir point-and-click adventure game, filled to the brim with dark humor and shady characters. Help the private investigator Mulder solve the case, by exploring the old motel, helping the residents and ultimately confront the antagonist.

The visual style is gritty, and dark, with a touch of noir. The story is twisting and grim. How far will you go to find your chick?

Don your notebook, a glass of whiskey and your spyglass and go hunting. It's time to crack the case!

World of Gibbets

iTunes Description

Take a deep breath, focus..then SHOOT! Oh dang! You missed and just killed a stranger :o 'World of Gibbets' invites you to a gruesome place where people are just moments away from..uhm..becoming angels. They hang on gibbets! Take your bow and arrows, shoot the rope and become a hero! Unfortunately, the game designers are evil! They added many traps and vicious tricks to each level so the chances are high that you'll end up in a bloody mess. But really, we don't want that to happen. Better train hard!

    Suddenly I'm not so sad to be broke this week, nothing here even mildly tempting.

  • Ramaz1234

    *yawn*

  • Amenbrother

    Eh...

  • FRnchFRy

    Kinda lackluster :/

  • DOOM

    Steve Nash Pass

  • rich_952000

    Endless Surf is fantastic for a buck.

  • Shifaan

    When is Supernauts releasing globally???

  • khann

    Well Spacedebris is a frustratingly fun and simple time waster.

  • cofunguy

    Pretty bleh, But I guess with Dungelot 2 out tmw, that should make it better!

  • RunningWild

    Is that a Super Meatboy ripoff I see there?

  • somedumbgamer

    I can't believe nobody is interested in R-Type II. C'mon, it's R-type II!!!

    • somedumbgamer

      Super Obstacle Boy looks tempting...no IAP either

      • cloudpuff

        I think there are iaps to unlock levels.

      • dotemu

        No worries. Here at DotEmu we don't like IAP so there is no IAP in R-TYPE II

  • http://afterpad.com/ Kevin MacLeod

    It was always going to be hard to top last week, but this really isn't bad! It can't be blockbusters every week - there are some fun games here...

  • ahmed2250

    Dungelot 2

  • worldcitizen1919

    I'll think I'll pass too.

  • newjorg

    Why promote such a blatant Super Meat Boy ripoff, Jared?

  • sakara214ever

    One of the worst weeks ever. Eaiting for Dungelot 2

  • Thaurin

    A Darker Shade of Red looks fun, too. But I guess no one likes point-and-click adventure games anymore. iPad only, though. :(

    • HarryWarden

      I very much do. Favorite type of game and find the iPad to be the perfect gaming platform for it. Wish it was more popular so we'd get more games. Too many so-called adventure games are nothing more than slightly more advanced hidden object games.

      • Thaurin

        Agreed!

  • Zephram

    If you like word games, "Word Puttz" looks fun.

  • heresandypandy

    Looks like I'll be using this week as an opportunity to catch up on games missed from previous weeks, I think

  • icepulse

    Disappointed about the AT: Card Wars soft launch. It looks really good.

  • somedumbgamer

    Being an old school gamer, I gotta grab R-type II

  • Flare_TM

    terrible week

  • ste86uk

    Why no mention of Riot Runners anywhere? Still in the upcoming thread too but it's on my UK store?
