Out Now: ‘Sword Of Xolan’, ‘Skiing Yeti Mountain’, ‘Brickies’, ‘Til Morning’s Light’, ‘Shredmill’, ‘Edge of Oblivion: Alpha Squadron 2’, ‘Risky Rescue’ and More

TouchArcade Rating:

Welcome to another week of new iOS games! It’s an exciting week for me personally as I’ve been dying to get my hands on the pixely action platformer Sword Of Xolan ever since I first saw the trailer, as well as the pixely SkiFree-inpsired skiing game Skiing Yeti Mountain. Plus the Noodlecake-published Brickies looks like a novel take on brick breakers, and Jared Bailey’s latest Shredmill seems like a quirky high scoring game. Plus, not only is this huge list of games below all available in the US now, but there’s our list from this morning which had a bunch of stuff on it that was already out, so be sure to check that one out too and let us know which games you’ll be picking up.

Late Addition Alert: It almost slipped by us, but new card battler Earthcore: Shattered Elements is now out of soft-launch and available worldwide. Yahoo!
