It’s Wednesday night again, and if you follow the iOS gaming scene then you know exactly what that means: tons of new games. Games that have been scheduled for release on Thursday have been launching in App Stores all across the world as their various time zones strike midnight, and for us here in the US that time is… now! For my money I think Zombie Highway: Driver’s Ed might be the pick of the week, as it’s a great spinoff of the original with some cool new ideas that will likely make it into the sequel sometime down the road. Also Giant Boulder of Death is from Adult Swim and Pik Pok, a team-up that always brings the goods, and Mecho Wars HD is a refreshed release of one of my favorite iOS turn-based strategy games.

An entertaining take on the horror shooting genre, Zombie Typomaniac is a quick-play arcade game, which pitches a player’s typing skills and quick reflexes against hordes of offbeat zombies.
In this compelling (spelling) test of nerves and skill, the player’s goal is to rid the town of its zombie infestation once and for all. Help comes courtesy of a variety of bonus health and weapon drops, but when the horde is bearing down it’s the player’s fast fingers which bring the firepower.
