Here we go folks, it's Wednesday night and that means a ton of new games have just arrived in the US App Store. My own personal most highly-anticipated game, Wayward Souls, is finally upon us, and I know I'm not alone in being incredibly excited that it's finally here. However, don't slip on some of these other games, as stuff like Leo's Fortune and Tiny Dice Dungeon have potential to be total sleeper hits. As always hit up the forum links for more impressions from international players who have been playing these games throughout the day, and be sure to check out our videos of Eli's streams from earlier today where he played most of these new games as well.

Levels in Suited Up can be punishing -- you will die. A lot.

Designed similarly to a layer-based art program, the level editor lets you use your imagination to create very unique levels. Once you have created a level, you can make it available to anyone and see how they stack up against you in your own creation.

    Oh man...WAYWARD SOULS.

    Bought.

    • Design by Adrian

      With hats!

  • JackMule

    The moment I bought Wayward Souls, an earthquake happened in my town. I am not exaggerating. My house actually started rumbling. I didn't know whether to laugh hysterically or cry in fear.

    • Bernizzle

      Do both

    • WillCN

      It's a sign. Someone has chosen you to be the Wayward Souls Champion!

    • DuckyShot

      The prophesies were true! It is foretold that one day the Dragonborn would come to slay th- oops, wrong article. Uh, Science? Yea, it's gotta be science.

    • Jake7905

      An Earthquake on the night of a big release can only mean one thing.........a 5 star TA review.

  • Spaztika

    Aaah!! Fantastic week! Wayward Souls, Leo's Fortune, Third Eye Crime, Horde of Heroes and Tiny Dice Dungeon! I haven't even managed to look at the other games yet. :D

  • DuckyShot

    Wayward Souls is awesome. Nuff' said.

  • LightningX32

    Just downloaded Wayward souls but has anyone tried Not Quite Red? Looks interesting.

  • C. Stubb

    The speed with which my finger hit the "buy" button for Wayward Souls is incomparable to anything one might even dare to call "instant".

  • Bernizzle
  • Jake7905

    There are other games being released tonight besides Wayward Souls? That is newsworthy.

    • Bernizzle

      Which ones? I just got off a 9 month deployment soooo I've been deprived of the App Store for some time

  • Shifaan

    Haha YES! ABOUT BLOODY TIME WAYWARD.

  • starkiller969

    Personally I'm waiting for the injustice update which goes live Tommorow !
    But wayward souls does look very interesting !

  • Goggles789

    Wayward Souls is incredible. Well worth the measly $5 asking price. I haven't wanted to play an iOS game in ages. So much shovel ware. But man! We have a true gem here and now!

  • XzJ450NzX

    For the people who bought wayward souls, how do you control the character and abilities? Just curious..

    • LightningX32

      Left side of screen controls character movement, right side of screen in tap for attack/tap, hold and let go for power attack. To use your abilities you either swipe up or down on the right side of screen.

  • m1ta

    Obviously purchased Wayward Souls, but Third Eye Crime looks good too.

  • AjaxJump

    Yeah we need more roguelikes. Because the AppStore isn't full of them yet.

    • Leeabe51

      The term is so loosely used that it doesn't mean much. FTL and Wayward Souls are both considered Rogue-likes, yet game play is nothing alike. So yeah, a few more won't hurt.

  • Shifaan

    Where the hell is the virtual sword slicing game? Anyone know what I'm talking about? I can't seem to find any news or the game for it.

  • Alexythimia23

    Wayward souls looks cool, but is there no story to it?? I mean is it just randomly generated dungeons? Hope not as im getting tired of these hack n slash games, evolve some gear, and then hack n slash some more... Its just that for that price i hope it has depth, just feels like a intenser battle if it has a meaningful good story to it... If anyone plays it please let me know what its like and if it has some content of a storyline or plot, apreciated :)

    • Pteros

      It does, there's a central story in addition to personal arcs for each character. It's unusual for a procedural generated game, but it's all there.

      • Alexythimia23

        Your a star, thanx for the update, guess i will be hitting the buy button:)

  • xzeldax3

    Record Run is out in NZ, if anyone is interested.

  • mclifford82

    Tiny Dice Dungeon and Suited Up for me. Looks like fun distractions in between rounds of Hearthstone.

  • redkins54

    Past on everything this week.
