Coming Tonight: ‘The Act’, ‘Asphalt 7’, ‘Fish Heroes’, ‘Soccer Superstars 2012’, and More

It’s Wednesday again, which (generally speaking) means one thing in the world of the App Store: Loads of new games. There aren’t quite as many releases this week, but the games that are available seem really great- At least so far, we’ll see how everything pans out later in the week once we dig into these deeper for their respective reviews. All of these links should start working in the US App Store at 11:00 PM Eastern, or potentially much earlier if you’re in Europe or Asia.

The Act, $2.99Forum Thread – An entirely original animated game in the style of Dragon’s Lair and all those other classic LaserDisc titles from days of yore.

Asphalt 7: Heat, 99¢Forum Thread – The latest iteration in Gameloft’s Asphalt series. Launching cheap and loaded with fairly optional IAP.

Astronot, $1.99Forum Thread – A retro-styled metroidvania game? Tell me more…!

Boom Brigade 2, $3.99Forum Thread – The original Boom Brigade was a fun twist on an… almost tower defense-y formula, and I’m expecting big things from the sequel.

Centipede Origins, 99¢Forum Thread – Another Atari re-imagining of a classic arcade game? Alright.

Fish Heroes, 99¢Forum Thread – We got a look at this game back at WWDC, and even though it’s highly derivative of similar titles (Like most Angry Birds-style catapult games) it’s a lot of fun.

James Noir’s Hollywood Crimes, FreeForum Thread – A strange Ubisoft port of a 3DS game? Curious.

Magic 2013, FreeForum Thread – Yeah, this came out last night, but it seems worth including here just in case anyone missed it. If you’ve got an iPad, download this game now.

Soccer Superstars 2012, FreeForum Thread – I’m a total sucker for Gamevil’s RPG-heavy Superstars series of sports games. We got a peek at this one at WWDC, and, yeah, you need it if you liked any of their other sports games.

Velcirapture, 99¢Forum Thread – A high scoring game from Adult Swim that features “chain smites?" Where do I sign up?

Yesterday, $4.99Forum Thread – A noir point and click adventure game from Bulkypix with one hell of a cool looking art style.
