Out Now: ‘Combo Crew’, ‘Poker Night 2’, ‘Epic’, ‘Stickman Tennis’, ‘Zombie Fish Tank’ and Much More

TouchArcade Rating:

It’s another Wednesday evening here in the US, which means that it’s another batch of new iOS game releases. Tonight is a pretty extensive list, with a little something for everybody. Telltale’s odd and awesome looking poker game Poker Night 2, which features a mashup of characters from a number of cool games, made a late appearance in the New Zealand App Store. I’m stoked to check that one out. Also, in case you missed it before, EA’s online RPG Ultima Forever soft-launched in Canada today, so if you have access to a Canadian App Store account you should check that out too. Enjoy!

Combo Crew

First Impressions: Upcoming Brawler ‘Combo Crew’ From ‘Squids’ Creator Is Pretty Rad

Unlike most of brawlers, including ones we see on iPad and iPhone, Crew doesn’t use virtual buttons. In fact, you don’t even directly control your character’s movement. You just swipe to attack between bad guys. Two finger swipes lead to bigger combos, holding down a swipe charges an attack that can break through defenses, while on-screen taps can counter-attack anyone taking shots at you. As the game ramps up, you start learning new ways to combo, as it integrates multi-directional swipes that can do things like, say, blast opponents into the air for a juggle.

Epic

First Impressions: Hands-on With Gameloft’s ‘Epic,’ A Free-To-Play Movie Tie-In

In Epic, you’ll be tasked with building up a fantasy army and taking care of all the overhead that goes alongside this. Basically, you’ll be obtaining minerals, refining minerals, and waiting for a bunch of timers to finish so you can obtain and refine even more minerals — you know, the usual. I guess the hook with this one is in its tie-in with Blue Sky’s film of the same name, which is apparently hitting a theater near you later this week. It has talking slugs in it, just FYI.

Finger Tied Jr.

In each Finger Tied Jr. puzzle, fill in a shape by moving up to four fingers around on your iPhone/iPod touch at the same time. But be careful, lift a finger, or go out of bounds, and it’s game over. Finger Tied Jr. will test your mental, as well as your finger abilities! Finger Tied Jr. can be played entirely by yourself, but for even more fun, invite some friends over and Finger Tied Jr. makes a great party game!

Hyper Breaker Turbo

First Impressions: ‘Hyper Breaker Turbo’ is the Newest Brick Breaker on the Block, and It’s Pretty Darn Good

The part that stands out about Hyper Breaker Turbo to me are its elongated levels. As you break through a set of block barriers you can continue to go up in the level, with more block formations and obstacles for you to deal with. It’s a nice change from the usual single-screen levels in similar games, and once you do end up making it to the goal your score is tallied and you’re given up to a 4-star rating for completion. You don’t have to break every block to complete a level, but doing so will earn you more points and thus give you a better shot at earning more stars, which are used for unlocking additional themes and sets of levels later in the game.

Jane Wilde

App Store Description:

Men’s Room Mayhem

First Impressions: ‘Men’s Room Mayhem’ Tasks You with Directing Traffic when Nature Calls

Men’s Room Mayhem is a pretty straightforward line-drawing game. You’re given a top-down view of a bathroom, with 3 urinals on one wall, a toilet stall down in the corner, and a couple of sinks near the exit. As people walk in they’ll give you and indication of whether it’s “number one" or “number two" and you simply draw a path from them to the appropriate facility. Of course, just as you need to avoid planes crashing into each other in the granddaddy line-drawer Flight Control, if two bathroom patrons’ paths cross during the course of their potty break, a knock-down drag-out fight will ensue.

Poker Night 2

App Store Description:

The chips are down and the ante is up in this sentence already bursting with poker clichés!

Take the fifth seat in Poker Night 2 and go all in at a table featuring Claptrap (Borderlands 2), Brock Samson (The Venture Bros.), Ash (Army of Darkness) and Sam (Sam and Max series). Your dealer is GLaDOS (Portal series), but at no point will you be considered as a candidate for a visit to Aperture Science’s Enrichment Center. Unless you lose.

– Listen to your new poker buddies’ hilarious banter discussing life, Rusty Venture’s underwear and other amusing anecdotes!

– Unlock in-game bounties including themed tables, chips, cards and other awesome items!

– Play either Texas Hold ‘em or the slightly less popular Omaha Hold ‘em. No one knows why it’s less popular. Omaha is a great place.

Sci-Fighters

mzl.ihirwdra

App Store Description:

Designed by FlukeDuke – the creator of “The Impossible Game" – comes a fast-paced actiongame playable with two players on one device!
The games idea is as simple a addicting: You and 3 opponents are set in an arena which is haunted by a monster. Each player tries to be the last man standing using classical 2d-gameplay mechanics. By using different weapons like flash grenades, a monster potion (turning you into a monster), an ice-rifle or even an automatic laser you are fighting for your life over and over again.

Stickman Tennis

First Impressions: ‘Stickman Tennis’ is a Simple but Fun Game of Mobile Tennis

You’ll guide your stickman through 64 different tournaments in the single-player campaign, or just hop right into a one-off quick game. You have the option of having your character auto-run to the ball or you can choose to control his movement manually. You can also choose from 3 opponent difficulty levels and the length of each match.

Stickman Tennis is controlled with a virtual stick for movement (or just for shot direction, if you choose the auto-run option) and a set of 3 virtual buttons – one each for a lob, slice, or topspin shot. You’ll hold down the button of the type of shot you want to hit, and when the ball is near you release it to perform the shot. How well you hit that shot is all based on timing, so let go too early or too late and it won’t result in an optimum shot.

Zombie Fish Tank

First Impressions: Chillingo’s ‘Zombie Fish Tank’ Is Coming Tonight

Zombie Fish Tank is yet another competent, level-based arcade action game with a three-star rating system being published by Chillingo. Its hook is a “devouring" mechanic. In the game, you play as a ghoulish fish and are tasked with eating other freakish fish. As you gobble these dudes up, your fish gets bigger. Eventually, he gets big enough to chow down on the larger fish swimming around in a given level. If you accidentally run into a bigger fish before your own is large enough to take him on, he’ll eat you instead.
