It's another new week and that means another new batch of iOS games have arrived in the App Store. I'd say this isn't a particularly busy week in terms of number of games, but there's a better ratio of what I'd call high quality offerings than a typical week. Plus there's a few things we're still waiting on, such as The Frostrune which actually did launch very briefly but has since disappeared, but should be re-arriving sometime later tonight. Then there's Nintendo's Fire Emblem Heroes which, if Super Mario Run is anything to go by, will arrive sometime late morning or early afternoon tomorrow. We'll see! Also the very interesting looking Glitchskier should be coming most any time, but just hasn't arrived in time for this post. So check out the full list of games below and let us know in the comments or in our Discord chat which games you'll be picking up this week!

  • NicoPWD

    Yuck what a bad week for new releases. Glad that Nintendo has thier new game coming out tomorrow and I will check out Frostrune when it comes out. But don't see anything that I am getting tonight.

    • aconfusedkender

      Thank you for your valuable input kind sir...

    • boydstr

      Yes I agree the last 3 weeks I didn't find any games that interest me I wish that the AppStore had a special game section with only premium games mabey ported PC/Console games with a higher price than most games €10/€15/ etc.

    • boydstr

      Do you mean "The Frostrune"a game about Viking story?because I see that the game is released.

      • NicoPWD

        Yes, but for some reason it's not showing up in the App Store for me.

      • boydstr

        Where you living?

      • Hoodin

        Witch app store?! AHHH *hides*

      • OrangeKnickers

        Not out in Germany yet, hopefully later today!

      • OrangeKnickers

        Nevermind, it's out now. Instabought and for now highlight of the week!

  • Trickoy

    The Wolf Simulation Online also came out for iOS today.

  • vectorarchitekt

    Glitchskier is out

  • Stormourner of the Nature

    reach for the sky and hold your head up high, for tonight and everynight, you're an edo superstar, and don't you be afraid, think of all the friends you've made, like any other night you've got your name in lights, you're an edo superstar ♫♫♫♫♫♫♫♫♫♫

  • Stormourner of the Nature

    ooh shoot I Felis got released yesterday and I didn't buy it *goes straight to the app store*

  • nicodemus82

    There was also a new Dissidia Final Fantasy game released a couple of days ago on the Japanese App Store.. Has the usual f2p mechanics like gatcha draws, but is surprisingly fun so far 🙂

  • Petr Dvořák

    Very poor week, hope that AppStore will bring more premium game with real premium quality otherwise I'll switch to Switch when released.

    • Jamesrooney27

      What you on about there 2 or 3 good paid games out this week, the AppStore been like this for few years

      • Petr Dvořák

        I don't see any this week. Last week was also poor.

  • OrangutanKungfu

    Corpse Party alone makes this a good week. Fire Emblem Heroes, Frostrune and Felis are just gravy. Glitchskier is out now too (iOS 10 only, so I'll pass for now).

    • brantov

      man, Glitchskier is a blast.

  • chicoach

    Why are there so many people caught up on premium versus free to play? Who the heck cares if it's a good game??? Anyone briefly scanning these lists and only looking for premium games only are fools. There are lots of great F2P games out there that don't cost a dime. Many of those give you options to remove ads and so forth that make them premium, just at a different point to n the experience.

    I just don't get it but it is really tiring looking at these comments every week hoping for some suggestions on good games to play only to see half of the comments coming from a bunch of whining fools that are too caught up on a game needing to have a price up front to be considered good.

    • onebigdoor

      i agree that whinging in the comments doesn't help much, but a lot of people in this community prefer the premium model to the F2P model. since what is available is largely dictated by what people spend money on, if players only support premium games, it should promote the creation of more premium games. that's the theory, anyway. dismissing any F2P game out of hand may lead to missing out on some fun stuff that uses F2P in a fair or unobtrusive way, but that's a sacrifice many are making to promote their preferred pricing model.

  • iAnimus

    I just noticed that Gangstar: New Orleans is out on the App Store... Usually, a big title like that would have got a whole article about its release, so what's going on?

  • Alexythimia23

    Wow first time in a long time ive downloaded 4 games straight away, good stuff!

  • https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.granddevs.hellspawn Hells Pawn

    Thanks for sharing the good stuff. I would love to play "Snailboy: Rise of Hermitron"

  • gilbert.m4783

    Anybody know when hoggy 2, mallow drops, and Viking mushroom are coming out
