Welcome to another Wednesday night and another batch of new iOS game releases. There are so many cool games coming out tonight. It took me by surprise a bit, actually. I've been waiting forever for games like Bug Heroes 2 and Tengami to arrive (and they were both SO worth the wait), but there are a lot of other really great-looking new games in this list that I'm dying to check out too. And don't forget that the Game Boy Advance emulator, GBA4iOS version 2.0, launched earlier today as well, and a bunch of people seem to be having fun with that whole thing. Check out the list below and be sure to visit the forums for impressions and check out Eli's Twitch.tv stream from earlier today where he played many of these new releases.

  • cozmic0

    Another Case Solved is my highlight for this week... It's made by the same dev as Puzzle Craft and come in the same style as well, so instabuy for me!

    • bluspacecow

      It's free!

      I would see how far you can get into the game then carefully assess if their F2P scheme is worthwhile then maybe throw them some cash that way.

      F2P - the new donationware :P

      • cozmic0

        I'm still at the beginning part of the game and so far I'm pleased, it seem to be a more complex game with higher production value and it retains match-3 as the core mechanic

        On the IAP side it does seem to offer more exclusive premium currency only item, but so far I haven't come across any paywall yet. Fortunately like puzzle craft premium currency is also doled out generously and you can also get a set amount regularly every 12 hours so techinally nothing is blocked by IAP only.

  • Pete Martell

    Ava, guys download it, freaking amazing platformer, best controls I have come across that wasn't made by Nintendo.

    Simply an awesome game, really enjoying and it is cheap, also first levels are free like a demo so no reason not to check it out!

    Seriously, so good I don't even want controller support.

    Never even knew about it, also got doctor life and tengami, loving them both but Ava definently game of the week, possibly a contender for GOTY, unless something changes towards later levels, I ain't kidding.

  • Defcubusal

    Darn was hoping for Wayward Souls, but Bug Heroes 2 and Second Chance Heroes looks pretty cool!
