Coming Tonight: ‘Blazing Star’, ‘Epic Raiders’, ‘Magic Wingdom’, ‘Manos: The Hands of Fate’, ‘The Walking Dead’ and Tons More

It’s Wednesday again and this ultra-early edition of the coming tonight list is powered largely due to me getting up weirdly early to read the ffmpeg documentation. That’s one exciting Wednesday morning, let me tell you. Anyway, this Wednesday evening should work like all other Wednesday evenings in that all of these games should be available in the US at 11:00 PM Eastern, or potentially much earlier if your App Store of choice is in an international region to the east of us.

Blazing Star, $2.99Forum Thread – Another release from SNK Playmore. I hope they keep pumping out these iOS ports. My local arcade was fairly barren and I wasn’t a millionaire so I couldn’t afford a NeoGeo, so this’ll be the first time I’ll get to experience Blazing Star.


Car Toons!, 99¢Forum Thread – A car-centric physics puzzle game from FDG Entertainment. Check out the trailer, it looks pretty radical.


Epic Raiders, FreeForum Thread – We absolutely loved Battleheart, but I’ve said how much I wished they took the game just one step further. That seems to be what Gamevil is trying to do here. Hopefully the free to play elements aren’t too offensive.


Flick Champions World Edition, 99¢Forum Thread – Were you crazy about the original Flick Champions (Free), here’s a sequel of sorts.


Magic Wingdom, 99¢ / FreeForum ThreadStoneloops! of Jurassica was one of my favorite iPhone games, so, I’ll basically just blindly download whatever Playcreek makes.


Manos – The Hands of Fate, $1.99Forum Thread – I’ve got sky high hopes for this game. I just really, really hope the controls hold up.


Megatroid, FreeForum Thread – There seems to be some confusion regarding whether or not this is actually coming today. It’s definitely available in New Zealand, but the developers are saying it’s coming next week. We’ll see!


Orc: Vengeance, $2.99Forum Thread – A dungeon crawler from Chillingo that looks absolutely incredible. Hopefully the gameplay stands up to the visuals.


Shellrazer, $2.99Forum Thread – I don’t even know what’s happening in this game but it involves a massive turtle loaded with guns, which fulfills some sort of video game wish list I never knew I had.


Slydris, $1.99Forum Thread – We had a pretty extensive preview of this game earlier this week, give it a look.


SolaRola, 99¢Forum Thread – A puzzle platformer from Square Enix? Err? OK! I’ll allow it.


Spy vs. Spy, $1.99Forum Thread – I’m pretty stoked for this massive nostalgia bomb to drop tonight. Updated and retro modes along with online multiplayer? I’m in.


The Walking Dead: Episode 1, $4.99Forum Thread – Sure, this has been out on PC and consoles for quite a while now, but I’ve been saving myself for the iPad. Additionally, it’s universal!


Worm vs. Birds, 99¢Forum Thread – Aaaaaand here’s our weekly Angry Birds-style three star earning physics puzzler.
