Welcome to another week and another huge batch of new iOS games. This has turned out to be a surprisingly great week, especially if you're into that whole "roguelike" thing that's so hot right now. Desktop Dungeons has been a huge hit on PC and now, despite rendering its name nonsensical, it has arrived on the iPad. Then there's Sproggiwood, another desktop roguelike that's been quite popular and should make a great fit on the iOS platform. Plus it's just so darn adorable it makes me want to jump into a vat of acid. Finally, there's The Deep, and endless roguelike that does the whole "Game Boy visuals" thing quite well. Of course there's also tons of other stuff for all types of gaming tastes, so check out the list below and let us know which games you'll be picking up.
