You might have thought this week would be pretty lame for game releases with GDC right around the corner, but you would be wrong. There’s a heck of a lot of good stuff being released tonight, so, hopefully you’ve got your iTunes account all charged up and ready to roll.
Like all Wednesday night release extravaganzas, these games will all be available at 11:00 PM Eastern, or potentially much earlier if you’re lucky enough to live east of the United States. I’m particularly excited for Waking Mars if you were wondering what the Mars rover image was all about.
AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! (Force = Mass x Acceleration), $2.99 – Forum Thread – I suppose the elephant in the room here with this skydiving game is its ridiculous name. Also, per the iTunes text it mentions the game will teach you how to debristle a pig. I think that’s worth three bucks alone.
Tobe & Friends Hookshot Escape, $1.99 – Forum Thread – A spinoff of the game Tobe’s Vertical Adventure (available on Steam) this seems to be a vertical platformer that has tons of variety through multiple characters and weapons.
Waking Mars, $4.99 – Forum Thread – Tiger Style has some large shoes to fill after releasing our 2009 Game of the Year Spider: The Secret of Bryce Manor. I’ve played a pre-release version of Waking Mars, and, it’s pretty great.
