Out Now: 'R-Type II', 'Super Obstacle Boy', 'Any Landing' and More

It's another Wednesday already, with another list of new iOS games releasing all across the globe. It's not exactly a massive list this week, but as always there's an interesting selection of stuff to choose from. Also, there's several titles that we know of that are waiting to launch until Friday, which is Valentine's Day, so expect another one of these release posts later in the week...

TouchArcade Game of the Week: Toast Time

The idea behind the TouchArcade Game of the Week is that every Friday afternoon we post the one game that came out this week that we think is worth giving a special nod to. Now, before anyone goes over-thinking this, it doesn't necessarily mean our Game of the Week pick is the highest scoring game in a review, the game with the best graphics, or really any other quantifiable "best" thing. Instead, it's more just us picking out the single game out of the week's releases that we think is the most noteworthy, surprising, interesting, or really any other hard to describe quality that makes it worth having if you were just going to pick up one...

Out Now:  'Final Fantasy VI', 'Eliss Infinity', 'Galcon Legends', 'The Quest - Elemental Asteroids' and Much More

It's that time of the week again when a bunch of new iOS games hit the App Store. There is a tremendous amount of games this week, but the "big dog" of the bunch is without a doubt the arrival of Square Enix's Final Fantasy VI. But, I implore you to give some of the rest of the lineup some serious consideration. Games like Cloudbreakers, Spell Quest, Toast Time and Toad Rider are all little bundles of fun that shouldn't slip under the radar. Plus there's Eliss Infinity and Galcon Legends, follow-ups to two of the App Store's early classics. It's a good week to be an iOS gamer...

Coming Tonight: 'Final Fantasy VI', 'Galcon Legends', Eliss Infinity', and Tons More

It's Wednesday again, which means precisely one thing in the iOS world: An onslaught of brand new games, hitting the US App Store in about twelve hours. All of these games should be live on the US App Store at 11:00 PM Eastern, or potentially earlier if the developers decide to throw the release switch. If you live in a different iTunes region that isn't the USA, well, these games might already be available for you to buy...

TouchArcade Game of the Week: 'Dawn of the Plow'

The idea behind the TouchArcade Game of the Week is that every Friday afternoon we post the one game that came out this week that we think is worth giving a special nod to. Now, before anyone goes over-thinking this, it doesn't necessarily mean our Game of the Week pick is the highest scoring game in a review, the game with the best graphics, or really any other quantifiable "best" thing.

'Republique' Season Pass In-app Purchase Discounted Down to 99¢

Republique [$4.99], the stealth-based adventure from developer Camouflaj, has just dropped the price of their in-app season pass from $14.99 all the way down to 99¢. According to a post in our forums, the drastic price reduction is an effort to fulfill obligations to Kickstarter backers. Republique is an episodic game with five parts planned, and you can either purchase additional episodes separately or pre-purchase them all for a discount by buying a season pass...

Out Now: 'Bloodstroke', 'Dawn of the Plow', 'Lego Star Wars Microfighters', 'Fish Bowl Roll' and More

It's that time of week again where a ton of new iOS games hit the US App Store and the rest of the world. Pretty decent size list, with some stuff I've been looking forward to for a while and some stuff I didn't even know about until today but am already excited about. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like Final Fantasy VI will be hitting tonight, despite them mentioning it in the App Description of FFIV: The After Years during its recent sale. Also Dungeon Keeper should be exiting Canadian soft-launch status tonight, but it hasn't happened yet as of this posting so we'll let you know whenever it does...

Coming Tonight: 'Bloodstroke', 'Pyro Jump', 'Draw Slasher', 'Dungeon Keeper', and More

Well, it's Wednesday morning, before the sun even comes up in my neck of the woods and we're already starting to see some games appear on the New Zealand App Store. As usual, all of these games should be available in the US App Store at 11:00 PM Eastern tonight, with the exception of two games with soft launches. Dungeon Keeper is a bit of a wild card as it's going from soft launched to actually launched, meaning it could pop up in the US App Store anytime between now and midnight Pacific (or later). Mobage's Monster Grand Prix is out in Canada, and it's doubtful we'll see it in other regions today...

TouchArcade Game of the Week: 'Glyph Quest'

The idea behind the TouchArcade Game of the Week is that every Friday afternoon we post the one game that came out this week that we think is worth giving a special nod to.

Freebie Alert: Cult Hit 'Carmageddon' Free for a Limited Time

In October of 2012, Stainless Games released an iOS port of their 1997 cult-classic vehicular manslaughter game Carmageddon [$0.99] as part of their revival of the series with a planned reboot for consoles and PC called Carmageddon: Reincarnation...

Out Now: 'In Fear I Trust', 'Ninja Village', 'TowerMadness 2', 'Tree Wars', 'Atomic Fusion' and More

Well, here we are with another week of new releases upon us already. This isn't the sort of week with a bunch of big, flashy titles, but there's a ton of variety and quite an increase of new stuff compared to what was showing up in New Zealand earlier this morning. It's the kind of week where that highly-anticipated title you've been dying for (ahem Final Fantasy VI) doesn't come out, but there's plenty of options for unearthing a diamond in the rough. Everything you need is below, and let us know what you end up grabbing in the comments below...

Coming Tonight: 'In Fear I Trust', 'TripTrap' and More

It's Wednesday morning, which means precisely one thing for iOS gamers: New games. For whatever reason, it's become the default day of the week to release things. Games appear in the New Zealand App Store, then slowly filter across the rest of the world's App Store regions before finally appearing for download in the US App Store at 11:00 PM Eastern...

Use a PlayStation 3 Controller in Any iOS 7 Controller Game With New Jailbreak Tweak

We don't typically post about things to do with jailbreak around here, but this one seemed too cool to pass up. Over the weekend, iDownloadBlog spotted the jailbreak tweak "Controllers for All" which can be had for $1.99 from Cydia's ModMyi repository. What makes this jailbreak tweak particularly magical is that unlike similar tweaks in the past that basically made your PlayStation 3 controller function in games with iCade support, this makes it work in all games with iOS 7 controller support...

TouchArcade Game of the Week: 'Bardbarian'

The idea behind the TouchArcade Game of the Week is that every Friday afternoon we post the one game that came out this week that we think is worth giving a special nod to.

Out Now: 'Baldur's Gate II', 'Mega Jump 2', 'Shadow Blade', 'Across Age 2' and More

Oh boy, we've got a doozy of a new release week on our hands. LOTS of new games, including some highly-anticipated big-name titles like Baldur's Gate II, Mega Jump 2, Across Age 2… basically lot's of games with "two" in their name. I'm also really excited for Shadow Blade, Bardbarian and Arc War, which all look like pretty unique little games. Earlier today, Eli streamed many of these new releases on our Twitch.tv channel, and those videos have been embedded below where applicable. Of course there's also the obligatory forum links and iTunes descriptions, so be sure to check everything out and have fun!..
