Welcome to another Wednesday on the App Store, which of course means tons of new iOS game releases. I originally thought that Apple’s new iPhone announcements would scare off developers from releasing games this week, but there is actually a nice assortment of games hitting tonight. We took a bunch for test drives throughout the day which you can see in the videos below, but for my money both Dead Effect and Heroes of Loot seem to be the ones that have captured my attention the most.

Its probably supposed to be like that. Maybe.
Yes, GLITcH looks a lot like Pong. Its supposed to. It doesn’t play much like it, however. GLITcH takes common bugs made in game development and makes it the point of the game.
Or, maybe the point is to just sit across from someone see how long you can play, despite the GLITcHes.
