mother-of-god-super-troopersI feel like there must've just been some massive kink in the proverbial iOS game release hose that someone finally noticed and undid, as I can't wrap my head around what reason there could possibly be for such an insane amount of games coming out on this specific Wednesday. I mean, this is an onslaught closer to what we expect to see near the holiday season… Not a random Wednesday in late June.

Maybe everyone is jockeying for that sweet, sweet chart positioning over the Fourth of July? That makes sense… Right? Well, regardless, whatever the reason, it's time to charge up your iTunes account with credit because when all these games hit the US App Store at 11:00 PM Eastern tonight, things are going to get real.


Here's everything that's on our radar right now:

Soft Launches

  • Stormourner

    now that's a strong week

    • GaZ-OiD

      Strong in numbers, not sure about quality..... GaZ

      • Stormourner

        you know toucharcade doesn't bring a list of games with long titles and overused themes because they're not quality, the list of games you see on the article are quality

      • GaZ-OiD

        Admittedly I have only scratched the surface of these titles but nothing has of yet jumped out at me. I will keep an eye on reviews and the forums in case I have missed a gem.... GaZ

      • thiagovscoelho

        they are also the people who think bubble witch saga is quality so you should always add salt to your food for extended flavor

      • MichelleChristiecuf

    Monster hunter where art thou?? 🙁

    • Stormourner

      thou must be patient and The Hunter of The Beast shall arrive

    • BoonyTuesday

      Where's the sport in letting it come to you?

  • nini

    Eh, it's a weak week to someone.

    • lainsxp

      yeah it is ... pretty lame

    • Stormourner

      nnnnnnnnnnnope!!! XD

      • the_rebel14

        That comment is fancy!

      • HelperMonkey

        Well, Eli is a fancy guy.

      • the_rebel14

        That is quite true!

      • falco

        Haha Weak Week!


    Hey Eli,

    A lot of these developers are unfamiliar to
    me. Is there a reason you guys decided to promote so many of these games? Are they special for reasons I don't understand?

    It would be nice if you could highlight which games that someone such as myself, who has been around playing iOS games since the spring of 2009, would be most interested in paying attention to. Sequels, long-time devs releasing new games, my IP that show promise, etc.

    This "huge" list of new games just seems very random. So my question is: What system is used to determine which "Wednesday night release games" are chosen?

    I'm not complaining, just trying to understand. Thanks =)

    • Eli Hodapp

      They're iOS games coming out tonight that look cool. If we only featured sequels or long-time developers on Wednesdays, this would be a very short and often non-existent list.


        Okay, fair enough. Thanks for the hasty response =)

        Does anyone have any recommendations for games I should be keep my eye on this week?? I don't even know where to begin with this list!

      • Ubisububi

        Thankfully, we have the awesome Toucharcade App that makes viewing the relevant forum threads as easy as cake. Er, I mean a piece of pie...

        Anyway, download it and you can tap your way down the list in no time flat.

      • the_rebel14

        LOL Love your username, dude. Good advice too.

      • Ubisububi

        You're the first to notice it 🙂 I guess that high school Latin paid off.

      • the_rebel14

        Yeah, I'm taking Latin and the saying "semper ubi sububi" would often come up. 🙂

    • Gamer1st

      The first week in a long time with a long list.

  • Himmat Singh

    Hey fellows, mind pointing out which games are worth taking a further look at? I only have Oscura on my radar, but it seems awfully similar to the original.

    Usually I sift through the games myself, but there's just too many of them here this week. Cheers!

    • Pete Osborne

      Obviously personal taste comes into it but I can wholeheartedly recommend Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake, Release, Oh and Swipe Quest from the paid selection, plus Desert Fox if it's your thing.

      From the free selection, I've got plenty of enjoyment so far from Super Pixelander, Bowl Faster, Bungle!, Square Siege and Paperama. Hope you find something!

  • Gabriel.Voyager

    Strong week in quantity, weak in quality
    For me the only one is Desert Fox and maybe Civil War

    • Stormourner

      strong in quantity: I agree
      weak in quality: I disagree

    • JP Falcon

      Yup..that is my two buys as well....

  • poohzombie

    Just gonna mention Aerena snuck it's release in today already.

    • Bloodangel

      Yeah I'm looking forward to this... Finally

  • igames

    Only civil war caught my interest apart from that they all suck

    • Eli Hodapp

      My money has been safe for so long I don't even remember how much I bet.

      • bigred447uk

        I think it was $100 Eli. I've been in the wings every week ready to post that it's a weak week if no one else does. So far my services to your bet have been redundant though, someone always beats me to it !

    • Stormourner

      try all the games before judging

      • igames

        Really? Dude look at super footbag, does that look fun to you? -.-

      • Eli Hodapp

        I've learned long ago to not judge a book by its cover, or just a game by its screenshots. So, yes, it could be fun. Instantly dismissing stuff as "crap" seems really weird.

      • Stormourner

        I hate to say but sometimes I judge the game by it's screenshot, nononono!! don't get me wrong I don't judge the all the games' screenshots except for those with very long titles and overused themes (like gangnam style or harlem shake)

      • Patt

        And this is why I miss the stream so much! 🙂

      • Stormourner

        it doesn't look fun unless I try it 😉

  • ste86uk

    I'm waiting for the Tiny Realms soft launch in CA hopefully on Friday. The devs are very active in the forums.


    Can anyone tell me what the game is in the article's picture??

    • Stormourner

      Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake


        Right, I knew it looked familiar! Thanks =^D

      • Stormourner

        you're welcome ^^

  • the_rebel14

    Week weak? Nay, strong week!

    • the_rebel14

      Crap... Weak week...

      • Stormourner

        strong week

      • BoonyTuesday

        You are both wrong. It's a perfectly adequate week!

      • Stormourner

        ok 😉

      • the_rebel14

        I'll agree to that! 😀

      • the_rebel14

        I mixed up weak and week on accident. Unfortunately, you can't edit a comment on the Toucharcade app so... Yeah. 🙂

      • Stormourner

        we can edit the comments on the internet browser instead

      • the_rebel14

        Yeah, that is nice! There are some things that should probably be edited!

  • BoonyTuesday

    How much is the "Mother of God" app?

    • Eli Hodapp
      • Stormourner

        LOL!! XD

      • BoonyTuesday

        Not a fun game. You begin with negative points that some other player earned long before you started playing, the game sends you constant notifications that you have "sinned" and need to repent, and no matter what your score is in the end, all you have to do is accept the developer as your savior to win.

        I don't get what's so addictive about these games...

  • wim

    Orc 2.....!!!!!!!!

  • MajorCheevo

    Thought world of tanks blitz launches as we'll

    • Travischan03

      That's tomorrow according to AppStore Facebook page.

    • Bloodangel

      Awesome game!!!! Just as fun n cool as the console versions

      • Bloodangel

        And as fun as PC one... But PC one is deeper as has crews. So PC one is more superior

  • Echoen

    Oh so free and oh so weak of a week.

    • Cevan7

      Monsters Ate my Birthday Cake looks like a great game.

  • DeNappa

    Judging from the trailer, that monty python game doesn't strike me as very mentionable aside from the fact that it's Monty Python. "Yet Another Runner"

  • Zeillusion

    Mother of god. I just gasm'd. So, many, games. My head, my head. It's Christmas! What should I get? Why should I play? 30$ uploaded to the account. BRING IT!

    • Luciano1084

      I love when you talk like that

  • HelperMonkey

    Civil War and Desert Fox will bring some quality. Deep strategy is not everyone's cup of tea, though. At least the guys at PocketTactics will be pleased.

  • Luciano1084

    Sweet 🙂

  • falco

    Eli will you stream today ?

  • Ariel Kaplan

    STORM CASTERS!!! FINALLY!! THis game looks so good!

    • DemoEvolved

      Yeah I think storm casters might be an improved version of Solomon's keep . Sorta kinda

  • Travischan03

    There really isn't anything that catches my eye In particular.

    Well except I was a little excited on the inside when I saw "out run"

    ... Then I realize it's just a runner thing. Not what I expected at all.

  • bigred447uk

    It's going to be hard sorting the wheat from the chaff this week. Bit random but I'd love an IOS version of Space Engineers. I hope it gets ported soon.

  • stolenlogic

    When I saw the mother of god meme I thought they FINALLY releases MC5.


    This list is shit to me.

  • stolenlogic

    Thank god for steam sale this week, otherwise it would be a total waste.

  • caaalrb

    I just want Seabeard...

  • jl802

    Where is Modern Combat 5?

  • marcanthony0313

    I just want Modern Combat 5.

  • AsgerJ

    I'm just waiting for "Mountain"! 🙂

  • James Cameron

    Awakening Forest is the one that's got me wetting myself

  • Jake7905

    A good, strong lineup. But unfortunately, there don't seem to be any power hitters.

  • Wiggles

    That's a lot of games to have to deal with right meow.

    Meow listen here, don't be surprised if some are disappointing.

    And don't feel the need to download all of them meow. Pace yourself. Some meow, some later.


    • awrobinson

      I can say "meow". I can say "moo"! For $20 I'll call the guy a chickenf---er!

  • awrobinson

    I got really excited, thinking there was a Super Troopers game...

    • awrobinson

      That being said, thanks for the list! I loved River Raid as a kid, and am actually really excited for that.

  • Funem

    Impressive, but still no Seabeard.......

  • oscar123967

    Huh isnt World of Tanks coming tonight? Thats a big name game

    • melocoman

      Yes it is

      • oscar123967

        Surprised they didnt mention it

  • HarryWarden

    Ugh, still no Broken Sword Episode 2. Hope it shows up real soon.

  • melocoman

    World of tanks blitz is universal now

  • Pray For Death

    Why are there 98 comments on this story?

  • tommet

    Y'all don't want to make a post that helps us sort through this? Is that coming later?
