The best (or worst) part about a three day weekend is how quickly the rest of the week sneaks up on you. It’s Wednesday again, which means a whole heck of a lot of new iOS games. Tonight’s haul includes a few highly anticipated games, as the release of Wild Blood frees up a space on our top ten upcoming games list. Assuming there wasn’t any massive shift in numbers since we ran them yesterday, this slides the list up and puts Galactic Keep at #10.
Anyway, here’s tonight’s games!
Avengers Initiative, $6.99 – Forum Thread – Have you ever found yourself playing Infinity Blade ($5.99) and thought, “Man, it’d be really great if I was playing as The Hulk instead?" Marvel has fixed that problem for you.
Babel Rising: Cataclysm, Free – Forum Thread – If you enjoyed Babel Rising ($2.99) and/or Babel Rising 3D ($0.99), chances are the third installment in the game series will be right up your alley. If nothing else, it’s free to try.
Drakerider, Free – Forum Thread – This surprise release by Square Enix is free with episodic-style unlocks similar to the recently released Final Fantasy Dimensions (Free). As the name implies, you fly drakes around with a “battle system like no other." It seems worth a download, just to see what’s up. The whole game will run you over $20 depending on which unlocks you spring for.
Infinite Warrior, $2.99 – Forum Thread – We did a preview-y TA Plays of this a little while ago, and liked how it’s a unique spin on the “endless" game formula. In this one, you’re stabbing. Check out the video.
Little Masters, Free – Forum Thread – A new Pokemon-like enters the fray. This one is free, so hopefully whatever monetization model they’re using isn’t too offensive. It requires a constant internet connection too.
Super Hexagon, 99¢ – Forum Thread – Terry Cavanagh’s first iOS release, following the critical success of his desktop platformer VVVVVV, is a simple but deceptively challenging arcade title that we’re stoked to finally get our hands on.
