Hello mobile gamers, hopefully you survived this April Fool’s Day without being tricked too badly, but here’s something that’s the honest truth: There is a crap-ton of new iOS games being released tonight. This list took way longer than usual, and it already takes a long time to put together. So this is as witty of an intro as you’re going to get, but be sure to check out everything below because there’s some real winners among the bunch.
A Day in the Woods
Sneak past the big bad wolf, avoid massive spiders and distract bears to solve each level and get Little Red Riding Hood safely to Granny’s house.
In A Day in the Woods – a stylish re-imagining of the traditional sliding puzzle game – you plays as Little Red Riding Hood’s wispy winged sprite friend. By moving tiles around each board, you’ll help Little Miss Red avoid scary woodland creatures while collecting flowers and berries along the way. There’ll be some friends to help you too, including bunny rabbits, beehives and the local woodcutter.

Lots of guns, lots of bullets, but no violence.
In Impulsive Force guns fire bullets continuously. When the player touches the left side of their screen the guns rotate anticlockwise and when the right side of their screen is touched the guns rotate clockwise. The player must rotate the guns so that the fired bullets propel a puck to the end-zone.
Stars are awarded depending on the time taken to get to the end-zone. These stars are used to unlock later levels.
The game features 40 levels.

Pickomino – the dice game by Reiner Knizia
An appetizingly addictive dice game for up to 4 gambling gobblers. Barbecued worms are in high demand, and only the coolest-headed chicken can win the tasty snack! But beware: Anyone who doesn’t manage to grab a worm off the grill can help himself to those on his opponents’ plates! In Reiner Knizia’s popular dice game, 16 barbecue worm portions with different values are waiting on the grill to be snatched up by the dice-throwing chickens. The rules are simple, but don’t push your luck too far: To get your claws into one of the delicious worms, you roll all 8 dice at the same time. You then pick a value from your throw and remove all the dice showing the same value, before throwing the remaining dice again. If your score corresponds to an available barbecue worm portion on the grill you can take this portion – or maybe even grab a portion from the plate of your fellow players! You’ll need both the luck of the dice and the right strategy: Stick with your score, or roll the dice just one more time to get a better portion. The player with the most worms in his claws at the end of the game wins!
