It's new iOS release day, and it's another busy one around TouchArcade Towers this week after the fairly hectic last couple of weeks. There's a lot of strong new titles this time around, including the early-releaser Magic 2015 which hit earlier today. Also there are some prominent updates hitting tonight, like the fifth and final episode of The Wolf Among Us which is available right now and a big update coming to Minecraft Pocket Edition which hasn't appeared for me just yet but we'll keep an eye out for it.

blackwell1

Blackwell 2: Unbound

blackwell2

iTunes Description

The year is 1973. The sound of a lone, ethereal saxophone drifts over the Roosevelt Island promenade, while a series of accidents plague a midtown construction site. The citizens of Manhattan take no notice of these events... but are they connected?

Embittered medium Lauren Blackwell (aunt of Rosa Blackwell) and her spirit guide Joey Mallone are the only ones who believe that there is anything strange going on, and they are the only ones who can stop an enigmatic killer from striking again...

Forum Thread: Blackwell 2: Unbound (by Wadjet Eye Games)


Blackwell 3: Convergence

blackwell3

iTunes Description

A new film opens to rave reviews, despite its bloody history. A beautiful uptown office remains unoccupied, despite its prime location. A downtown artist berates himself for selling out, while a Wall Street investor congratulates himself on a job well done. Just normal life in the big city? Or is something more sinister binding these events together?

Bizarre connections are a dime a dozen for the Blackwell family, but just how far back do they go? Medium Rosangela Blackwell and her spirit guide Joey Mallone are about to find out.

DaisyPop

daisypop daisypop1

iTunes Description

It is morning in the meadow. Wildflowers dance in the summer breeze. Ladybugs meander from blossom to blossom in search of a meal. And then the silence is broken by one small *TAP*.

At the point of impact, daisies rapidly expand into nearby flowers, touching off their equally explosive growth. Insects race outward from the flurry of petals and sound, bringing the chaos with them. A sparkling clover is caught in the melee—something special is about to happen!—but you never know exactly what a clover will set in motion.

Then as suddenly as it started, calmness returns, but you're ten seeds richer, and it's still early. More daisies are drifting into view.

A finely crafted action haiku for your iPhone.

iTunes Description

Imagine you could move mountains - literally! With realistic physics, Norse runes, rotating platforms and a lot of gray cells you'll help Munin, Odin's messenger in her very own 2D-adventure, to reclaim her power on a journey through Yggdrasil

Munin bolsters the traditional side-scrolling experience with the use of rotating environments to surpass obstacles and to solve puzzles. By twisting portions of the environment, players will create bridges from pillars, turn walls into floors or open new passages.

Further gameplay elements, like switches, moving environment or items influence by physics add even more depth to the puzzles: by rotating the game's world, boulders and debris will rumble, roll and fall. Liquids like water or lava will flow accordingly and Norse runes will show the way to the raven's lost feathers.

LEAVE YOUR EGO BEHIND! Tranquilo is a non-competitive, non-combative, non-fast-paced game! What kind of game is it then? It's a two-player dynamic puzzle based on cooperation to achieve mutual goals. Inspired by chemical bonding, each player must collect energy to grow their bubble while maintaining the bond with the other player's bubble but not touching it.

Sounds easy? Well, it's not. The thing about Tranquilo is that too much survival instinct could make you break the connection with your partner and too little of it could cause a collision.

        Coming from the man who leaves hilariously predictable negative replies to commenters who aren't excited about any of the new games or don't have a bathroom decked out in Angry Birds merchandise. Ironic...

      Is that an informed declaration because you played all the games on the list or are you just making an arbitrary statement in hopes that your feelings will be validated by a shared opinion?

  • B30

    Sky Tourist Blitz Trip, is the one for me this week (first one was really good).

  • Anotherkellydown

    FFFFF2P seems really cool with the short time I played it. Might play better on the iPad though, as the controls are a little cramped on an iPhone. A Few Billion Square Tiles could be promising if it's anything like the ol' Minesweeper. Downloaded but haven't tried it yet. Also played Beyond Gravity real quick, seems pretty good, and then there's Hellraid which I'll be downloading when I get out of work tonight for sure.

    • Anotherkellydown

      I never ended up downloading Hellraid because I spent 5 straight hours playing A Few Billion Square Tiles last night. Insanely addictive if you like minesweeper, but this is on a huge scale with a HUGE map, clans, hourly tournaments... Just awesome...
