You guys. This week is bananas for new iOS game releases. Seriously, I have a perfectly delicious-looking Sloppy Joe sitting on a plate right next to me, getting cold because the new games just don’t stop coming out. We talked about Dead Effect 2 launching earlier today, but we’ve also got Octodad, Lumino City, Five Card Quest, a port of the classic point and click game Sanitarium, and much, much more. I have a feeling it’s just going to get crazier as we approach the end of the year, so hold on to your butts. Check out the full list of games below and let us know what you’ll be picking up. Now if you’ll excuse me, my Sloppy Joe is calling my name.

Napoleon in Russia
Napoleons Invasion of Russia began on 24 June 1812 when the Grande Armée crossed the Neman River to engage and attempt to defeat the Russian army. The Grande Armée was massive, with over 600,000 troops. The French army initially advanced rapidly into Russia, winning a number of minor engagements and even a major battle at Smolensk in August. But in the end the Russian army always managed to slip away, until finally there was the great battle of, and French victory at, the Battle of Borodino, at the Gates of Moscow. But this was not enough. The French army was ultimately defeated by the vastness of the country and by the dreadful Russian Winter. By the end of 1812 the French Army was in retreat and would be destroyed on its long march home.
Napoleon in Russia recreates 5 historical battles from the doomed Invasion of Russia. There are also non-historical skirmish engagements included as well as one more available as a bonus mission.
