It's new iOS game night and one of the most hotly-anticipated titles is finally upon us: Bioshock. Despite all the hemming and hawing over a graphical downgrade and touch controls, it's hard not to feel like Bioshock on iOS is a bit of magic when it's actually running in the palm of your hand. Besides that heavyweight, the rest of tonight's lineup is extremely strong as well. Also it was sort of a weird week in that a bunch of games got a head start by launching yesterday, but they've been included in this list just to have all of this week's greatness bundled in one handy location.

    Yay bioshock :D Time to replay this lovely game, but this time, where ever I want!

  • Paps Shenanigan

    So Bioshock does not run on current gen iPod touch. That's a bummer. I'm sure they lost a decent amount of sales there.

    More money to spend on more unique games like Alone and Nightmare Cooperative.

  • nilly2323

    Tiny Tower is awesome. The original quickly lost its spark and Tiny Death Star never really hooked me in. Nimble bit is an awesome studio and their pixel games are by far some of the best. Disco zoo is perhaps the best as planes and trains got dull. Tiny tower Vegas though has hooked me for a long time and blown Disco Zoo out of my picture (spent so much time in that one I'm #16 on overall animals). Vegas has so many little quirks and games and things to keep it exciting. The customization of lobby's elevators and roofs is also pretty awesome, although the Bux lose a lot of value here compared to other games. Spending 10 coins in my first slot game got me to 700 Bux. Great game from a great developer.

    • PallaZ

      I absolutely disagree. It's the third time that they are bringing nearly the exact same game. While the first TT was a fun, but very repetitive game, were the next two Tower games even more repetitive. It's hard to play the same game a third time just with another theme.

  • gmattergames

    Watch bioshock go on sale over the holiday.

    • sweetdiss

      Have fun waiting 4 months for a $15 game to (maybe) go on sale.

      • gmattergames

        I'm not waiting, played the game years ago. What I'm saying is, it would not be unheard of for a big title released the week before a holiday weekend to drop over the holiday. Then there's the outrage of all who payed full price. Just sayin.

    So this is really what we get when the rest of tonight's lineup is extremely strong as well? More kiddie games? Really?
    Guess I will just have to use my ipad for productivity only...or pick up a Surface Pro 3 cause if this is the only type of entertainment....well at least im not spending a lot of money...just sayin..

    • NickyNichols

      Well aren't you just a giant pile of sunshine!

    • Goggles789

      Yeah, games like "My Puppy" stand out as extremely strong? What the fark would a weak week look like, then?

  • Goggles789

    Tower boxing was fun for about five minutes, but it gets pretty boring quickly. I'm sad to say that nothing else really grabbed my attention this week. Maybe next time.

  • Speedster117

    Well bioshock doesn't work on my ipod 5 sadly so now its back to waiting for seabeard, and Gridland to come to the App Store, because playing games in safari doesn't work very well.

  • http://www.mobilenations.com/ Simon Sage

    Alone has been fantastic.

  • Donny K76

    To people bitching about this week, STFU...one of the best weeks of the year. What exactly are these kiddy games?? If you want hardcore games, get an Xbox One or a PS4. Didn't Bioshock also come out this week? Plenty of updates as well as solid titles.
