It's Wednesday night where I'm at, and Thursday basically everywhere else in the world, which means that a bunch of new iOS games have just hit the US App Store. My rest of the year is made off of the release of Mos Speedrun 2 alone, as the original is an all-time favorite, but there's lots of other great stuff out today too. And some games coming out of soft-launch, like Need for Speed: No Limits, Pac-Man Bounce, Storm Casters Ultra, and Torque Burnout. My wallet and my device storage space cry weekly! Check out the full list of new games below and let us know which ones you'll be picking up!

  • ODMay

    Free-To-Play everywhere. I think I'll give Need For Speed a try.

    • Anonomation

      Well... Don't get your hopes up. I'm expecting either some extreme backlash from players or the continued support by people that refuse to admit how disgusting the freemuim aspects are. Not complaining, I don't have to play it, but they've already added the 20 dollar currency for some gold and that car that's hard to get without immense grinding or pirating. That's probably why it's only online.

      • Anonomation

        This atrocity is worse than RR3

      • Qaioud

        Omgz.

        How is that even possible, unless with each DL a free horde of goons turn up at your door and force you to funnel a bucket of lukewarm vomit?!

        Didn't they do ok with a previous freemium NfS...? Or am I imagining things?

      • Anonomation

        Hay last freemuim NFS was NFS WORLD, which is dead.

      • Gegoben

        RR3 was such a dissappointmen. Now they r doing it to need for speed😭

      • ZeeMonkeyMan

        Yeah, they are on consoles *stokes fire*

      • Ron

        What do you mean!? It has NO LIMITS. 🙂

    Mos!!!!!!!

    Weak wee... WTF was that 🐞🐞🐞🐞🐞🐞🐞🐞🐞🐞🐞🐞 ok, never mind what I was saying, it's never weak when the name Mos Speedrun is involved. Been playing off and on all day. Certainly worth the $2. Highly recommended.

    Good thing I picked up Legend of Grimrock for 99¢ because nothing here looks good.

  • Milotorou

    Peak Veek.

  • dancj

    Is that a freemium sequel to Stormcasters or a freemium version of the existing game?

    • Shifaan

      Freemium + additional updated content.

      • dancj

        That's almost the worst ansŵer. A true sequel I could get. A freemium version I could ignore - but this version means I'd have to play though the levels I've played through before - only not as good - to reach the new stuff.

  • baldeagle86

        Ditto. If not for picking up a couple of great games that went on sale for a buck I'd have nothing new. The past few weeks have been really slow.

    Where's the cat? I'm lost without the cat! Not sure what I should be buying....

        Not sure what happened last week, but it looks like all of maglor's old posts are gone...

        Oh no, he wasn't shot was he? Put down? Please no? 😟

      • Quazonk

        LOL What happened last week, did he get run over by a car? Chased off by a dog?

      • Darkmeteor

        Chased off by a dog, haha, something like that !

        If you're curious just read the comments from the Sanitarium news.

      • Milotorou

        Maybe he deleted his account, unfortunately 🙁

        I don't have time for that. Tell us what happened!

      • Edwin Ramirez

        Just saw what happened. Honestly, if that was all it took for Maglor to delete his/her account then he/she was a pussy (ba dum tissss)

        Sanitarium news? Where is that at?

  • Rain1dog

    Yeah I miss the days of games like Dead Space, Space Miner where you just purchased your game and fully enjoyed it as you pleased.

    It has to be 2 years since I've actually played a game longer than 15 minutes. I have zero games stored on my phone. It's a reason why I haven't upgraded my phone from 5s to 6s, no need.

    • Ron

      So make one worth having.

  • Mark Cee

    Quite impressive week. I liked the look of Might Strike Team, MoS, no more kings(chess fan), Pacman?, Peg grabbers. Stormcasters will have a look at, and a couple of others too.

  • Ron

    I'm enjoying the heck out of Shooty Skies. Couldn't figure out how to spend coins in The Balloons. Havn't had a chance to try much else yet but will definitely be trying Muffy the Maze Jumper just because of the name.

    • http://noodlecake.com Ryan Noodle

      When you have enough to spend, a big ol' Win Balloons banner appears that takes you there. You need 100 to get a chance to win one.

    How does the 007 game have so many 5 star reviews already? They all sound fake.

    • Quazonk

      They have to be. The game is a steaming pile of crap.

  • Quazonk

    Mos 2, Shooty Skies and The Balloons are all living up to the hype. The rest seem just sorta shovelwarey

    • http://noodlecake.com Ryan Noodle

      Glad you like The Balloons! Shooty is really great too. Can Matt and Andy do no wrong?

  • Timmy2x

    Damnnn, I wish I had unlimited funds I would totally buy all these free games!

  • Edwin Ramirez

    Need for Speed No Limits is obviously a disappointment. Starting and waiting for a race to load = 30-40 seconds. Actually racing = 15 - 20 seconds.

    It seems EA took the "mobile" part to serious, this games feel like staring at static menus and characters and every once in a while you see a car racing down a street for a few seconds.

    • Ron

      I guess there are limits after all eh?

  • Repulsa

    For those looking for a good premium release check out the doom beneath and tower in the sky both of these are great games I purchased last night

  • Peter Kellstrand

    Whoa, people complaining in the comment sections? This is new.

      well it's ancient as we speak

    What exactly is a Muff Jumper anyway..?

      Lmao...I'm not even gonna attempt a comment. Talk about opening Pandora's box!

  • Dmitry Volevodz

    Nice of them to mention shit like Chippy, but skip completely legit games.

  • Chaorro

    More like, Need for Speed No limits except for an energy timer, upgrade timers, parts needed for upgrades, building cars timer, events consume all your energy and are impossible, and lets not forget it has that overpriced iap we all know and hate from ea, once again they have managed to ruin another game and franchise. I will be damned if I buy another crappy game from them ever again. #EAWorstCompany2016

      No timers for building cars, or for upgrading your parts. You didn't play this game, take this L and go back to bed.
