Welcome to another packed week of new iOS game releases. 2016 continues to recklessly blast amazing new games directly at our faces and this week is no exception. Crescent Moon's space mining/RPG Stellar Wanderer is out and getting some good buzz, Tennis Champs Returns is my favorite game of 2016 so far (yes, seriously), and everyone can't shut their darn mouths about Thumb Drift, which is perfectly fine by me because I can't shut up about it either. There's some other stuff that should hit later too like the port of the original Rayman and Dead Mage's crazy brawler RPG Epic of Kings, so we'll keep you posted on those. In the meantime have your fill of everything on offer below, and seriously you guys, just download and try Tennis Champs, it's so good it hurts.

Ape Deactivate Ultimate


iTunes Description

When the inane professor and his insane apes tried to takeover the world, a terrible accident foiled his plans. One of his monkeys, which were created to carry out his plan, activated thousands of bombs at once, putting the professors and his laboratory into extreme danger.

Luckily, the professor had an idea.
Since the bombs were colour coded, he could deactivate them using the correspondingly coloured de-activator. Sort the four coloured bombs without losing control.
Time, however, is running low...

What force could be so powerful – and so malevolent – that it would destroy the very core of a life in order to get what it wants? Rosa Blackwell and Joey Mallone mean to find out, even if it means risking themselves in the process.
