It's Wednesday, which means a ton of new iOS games have just arrived in the US App Store. There's a change from the list of new games we posted this morning, as for whatever reason the iOS port of Alone in the Dark was pulled from sale. No word on why, but we'll let you know if and when it shows back up. A shame, as I was really looking forward to it. There's still a bunch of other stuff I'm stoked for tonight though, including the awesome Darkin, JoyJoy, and–surprisingly–Table Tennis Touch. A table tennis game isn't even something I knew I wanted, but I've been counting down the minutes to its release all day, It looks rad. Anyway, everything you need is below, feel free to let us know what games you've got your eye on in the comments.

Dream Quest

dreamquest

iTunes Description

Dream Quest is a roguelike deckbuilding game inspired by the likes of Ascension, Magic: the Gathering, and Shandalar. Explore randomly generated levels as one of 13 classes in short, 30 minute, sessions. One floor might find your wizard in the crypt, another your warrior underwater, and a third, your assassin stalking a volcanic wasteland. As you progress, your characters earn achievements, each making your future runs a little easier or more interesting.

Combat is a card game. Your abilities are a deck of cards that you develop as you gain power. For example, a thief starts with a handful of Slice cards and a Backstab, but can learn defensive moves like Dodge or powerful finishing moves like Coup de Grace. Carefully choosing which cards to add to your deck is the heart of the game: wise choices will find you slicing through monsters while poor ones will leave you tripping over your own two feet.

Fish Have No Souls

iTunes Description

Fish Have No Souls focuses on the feeling we get when we play a great shooter game on console or pc and dismisses the way in which they accomplished it. It creates an experience you can only have on a touch device. Fish Have No Souls creates a dark, immersive story. It drives the gameplay, to free fish souls swimming in a realm in which humanity is responsible. I designed the story to inspire you and challenge your current beliefs.

To interact with the game you place two fingers on the screen and a shot occurs between your two fingers. If you position a fish soul between your fingers, it frees the fish soul. The mechanic is simplistic, accurate, and polished. I’ve spent a long time making this mechanic feel good. If you’re about to free many fish souls in one shot, the fish souls detect this, and will react in cool ways to free other fish souls.
