Hey, whatever, App Store! There’s also some stuff that launched earlier in the week which I’ve included below, and a few things that are supposed to come out soon but haven’t quite shown up yet. So check out the list below and let us know which games you’ll be picking up!

On his journey, he’ll encounter fierce enemies and elaborate challenges, take on towering bosses, and navigate white-knuckle obstacle courses! The successor to To-Fu and To-Fu 2, the Runner Up Apple Game of the Year 2011, To-Fu Fury adds new visuals and new dimensions to game play. To-Fu Fury lets you make optional purchases using real money.
