Guys, I don't know what is going on, but my head is spinning from the amount of new games that launched today. Is there some weird holiday I'm not aware of? Was there a mass contamination of drinking water that caused developers to hit the publish button on their games in iTunes Connect? Honestly, I haven't been this overwhelmed by new games since just before the iTunes freeze prior to the holidays last year, and I think this list of games trumps even that one. This is the sort of week where there's so much stuff you'll definitely want to hit up the forum threads and see what people are saying to find out which games might be for you. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go take a nap.

BarrierGame

iTunes Description

An engaging flow-inducing minimalistic intelligent-arcade game where you control two sliding doors of a large barrier so as to let the "good" squares through and keep the "bad" ones out.

14 DIFFERENT COLOR SCHEMES for you to choose from as you prefer or need (in the "Briefing" section of the menu in the game), and changing the colors every once in a while is an enjoyable experience all by itself!

31 LEVELS some of them fast and action-packed, some slightly calmer and more meditative. You can play them all through in the given order, from 1 to 31, or also directly select some specific level to start with.

Additionally, each level can be played in an "Endless" mode where you can either go for new records of how many "goods" you can let through at that level while keeping the "bads" out, or, alternatively, you can just focus on the process of playing without any numerical goals and enjoy the flow.

Get a greater view of the battlefield as you lead your force to victory, with our new Map Zoom feature.

1864 saw the Union army make substantial gains against the Confederate forces in the American Civil War. Grant, replacing Halleck, took the risky gamble of attacking the Confederates on three different fronts. While Grant failed to gain any significant tactical advantage in any battle against Robert E. Lee, he succeeded at depleting Lee's forces. On the Western front, Sherman was able to capture Atlanta and seize Savannah. The Union's control of the railways and waterways gave them an immense logistical advantage, which would become vital to the North's eventual success. The Confederacy was ultimately fighting and losing a defensive war.

Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake

iTunes Description

Warning: This game is crammed full of monsters, cake, amazing powers, puzzly bits, epic adventure, witty repartee, secret paths, unlockable characters, silly hats and a wiener dog. Use caution if you are allergic to fun or overly sensitive to cake-related pathos.

ADVENTURE… EXCLAMATION POINT!
As so many of these things do, it all begins on a magical island. In this case, Gogapoe Island, a place populated by both humans and monsters. What starts out as a mission to get back Niko's birthday cake becomes a quest for the fate of Gogapoe itself. But, ya know, cake is still super important, too!

MONSTER MASH-UP!
Oodles of friendly monsters will join Niko's quest and use their kooky powers to demolish obstacles and humiliate enemies. Hordes of evil monsters will cause mayhem and generally be jerkfaces, but that's nothing you can't fix with headbutts, frost breath, stink clouds and rainbow barf.

    So many, I won't know what to check out. Hoping there's a stream to show all these games off

  • Icemaker

    Can't find the link for Point Blank?

  • Vestid

    Looks like a weak week. Will save my money because internetz.

  • melocoman

    Everyone check out wot blitz. Especially if you already have an account for pc or xbox. Probably the best online tank game. I got it a couple months ago for beta testing on the iPad. It's solid

    • loophole

      Yeah I've played a little bit of it and it seems a lot better than battle supremacy

      • Morgan01

        Just tired of all these Freemium titles.

      • Travischan03

        I would suggest checking this one out.

        It is using a free to play model that seems to avoid giving players power with cash

        Instead it only speeds up your research progression (which you still need to earn, by the way)

    • TigerBoat

      Holy shit no one said it was going to come out tonight!!!!

  • cofunguy

    May I ask a question? Okay..2 questions...why is the list at the bottom of the article not alphabetical as the top half is?? Ideally would be to have the forum link at the bottom with the top half but I suspect that has to do with how TA was set up initially and thus not be able to handle so many titles on release time.

    Thanks!

    • Jay G

      It's always like that for some reason.

  • cameron331

    I thought these posts were supposed to help us wade through the App Store and find good games. This huge list has a baffling number of really low quality games on it instead of a shorter list with more promising games.

    • Yukari

      Exactly, kind of defeats the purpose.

    • Himmat Singh

      Probably something to do with ad dollars and trying to stay alive.

  • MasonHurst

    Yeah most of these are a waste of space. They simply crowd out the well made games here and in the app store... real shame

  • devilmachine

    So many! I don't know where to start...

  • Bloodangel

    World of tanks and aerena are easily the best releases this week

  • Goggles789

    Today's theme: Shovel-ware. :/

  • Jake7905

    I'd suggest that all IPhone users check out First Strike Game, it just received an update adding more content and universal support. It's basically a "new" IPhone game.

  • Flamingo

    Good luck reviewing all these!

  • Emotive

    Like this comment if you scrolled through the entire post!
    (But really, nothing caught my eye :|)

  • Jacob Gehman

    That Bowl Faster description! I LOLed so hard.
    That'll be an insta-download the second I get home from work.

  • Meowman154

    Does anyone know when monster hunter freedom unite will come out I can't wait any longer!!!

    • Goggles789

      Yeah that actually looks pretty fun.

  • falco

    World of Tanks Blitz, Battle Casters, Battle Bear Ultimate FPS and maybe Oscura Second Shadow later for me.

    • falco

      Oh and Monsters ate my birthday cake look fun too.

  • Joe Welke

    I'm pretty sure that all the app commentaries given above have depleted TA's exclamation point supply for this week.

    Nothing looks too promising.

  • KoRoV

    Thats a really big load of nothing....

  • JMarceLF

    Worst list of games ever

  • cowtruck123

    Also the new Deadpool pinball table is out in the Zen Pinball and Marvel Pinball apps.

  • totsboy

    My game is also out today, is there any way to get it listed here?

    • MarkCValdez

      Google is paying 80$ per hour! Work for few hours and have more time with

      friends & family! On tuesday I got a great new Land Rover Range Rover from

      having earned $4151 this last four weeks. Its the most-financialy rewarding I've

      had. It sounds unbelievable but you wont forgive yourself if you don’t check it

    • zakroma

      Which one is it?

  • Bone16

    A weak week? Hardly! I've downloaded 6 freebies and there's still 2 or 3 paid ones I'd like to get. To each his own I guess, or whatever floats your boat

  • dibdib

    I just picked up Feeding Time and I'm blown away. I don't normally care for these types of puzzle games, but they did an outstanding job on the animation quality and the mechanics. The dev is boasting it as a no-IAP app, and personally I think that alone merits some success.

    There's a lot of great stuff on the list, but don't miss this one.
