Well here we are again with a new batch of iOS game releases, and it’s pretty tough to call any week where Final Fantasy 7 releases on iOS a “weak week" (someone will anyway). Yes, after literally years of people pining for Square Enix’s seminal PlayStation 1-era RPG on mobile devices, they’ve finally delivered. Eli took the iOS port for a spin earlier today and his impressions can best be described as “This is Final Fantasy 7 on my iPhone." Of course, if you aren’t a Final Fantasy fan there’s still plenty of other awesome stuff releasing tonight. Pac-Man 256, Demon’s Rise, Galactic Keep, Winter Fugitives and more. Oh, and Burger – The Game! So check out the full list below and let us know what games you’ve got your heart set on.
UPDATE: A couple of late arrivals have been added to the list below, popular Flash game Happy Wheels and gorgeous retro-inspired racer Horizon Chase. Enjoy!
UPDATE 2: Well, another late arrival, the turn-based strategy mashup Pocket God vs. Desert Ashes is out now too!
