Don't adjust your dial! No, it's not Wednesday night, the time we normally post our list of the new iOS games of the week. However, due to being absolutely swamped with GDC last week we weren't able to do our normal weekly roundup. The thing is though, there were A TON of awesome games that released last week, and we just couldn't live with ourselves if we thought any of them might have slipped by you due to not having them nicely rounded up like normal. So we're putting out an Out Now post today featuring all of last week's game releases, and this coming Wednesday we should be back to our normal schedule. So, peruse the list below to see if any of these happened to slip you by and let us know which games you'll be picking up, or in this case, have already picked up and been enjoying for the last few days.

    • Kiltedsheep

      Hear hear! Cheers guys

    • Rothgarr

      I do miss the old days, though, where they'd embed a gameplay video, if available, rather than a screenshot for each game. I also wish TouchArcade would allow playing a video full screen -- it's disabled when I view this site on my Mac.

      • DanCJ

        I'm the opposite. I much prefer the screenshots as you can get a much quicker view of the game.

      • dlehman

        I concur-- +1 to screenshots only.
