It’s another Wednesday night filled with new iOS game releases, but for many people out there today is simply “Modern Combat 5 release day." And that’s cool, I totally get it, we’ve been waiting a long, long time for Gameloft’s latest FPS. Luckily, it looks like it was worth the wait. Check out our review of the single-player portion of the game, and look for a review of the multiplayer portion soon. Besides that major release, there’s also a surprise arrival of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the official mobile game of the upcoming movie. It’s a beat ’em up made by the guys who made Combo Crew, so I’ve got high hopes for it.
