It’s another Wednesday night, and another batch of new iOS releases worldwide and here in the US App Store. As always there is a great mix of game types so there should at least be a little something for everyone. Personally, I’ve had more silly fun with Fist of Awesome than I’ve had in some time, and I really can’t wait to sit down properly and give Simogo’s Device 6 all of my undivided attention. That new Batman: Arkham Origins game made a surprise showing, and Mdickie’s ridiculous-in-an-awesome-way prison simulator Hard Time is definitely worth a look too. Be sure to peruse all the accompanying videos and forum links for all the information you need when deciding what to download tonight.
