Welcome to another iOS game release day, and with it being just a matter of weeks before Christmas and the bit iTunes freeze, it’s a jam-packed list of new stuff. The new Magic Puzzle Quest is out of soft-launch, Mooff’s new game (and first one in 3D!) Dungeon Time has arrived, the wicked cool looking hoverboard runner Power Hover is out, and just so much more. Also there’s still AirAttack 2 which launched way back on Saturday but still qualifies as released this week, and it’s still just as phenomenal as I felt it was in my first impressions. So kick back, clear your schedule, and start downloading like a lunatic from the huge list below.

Cataclysm: Dark Days Ahead
Cataclysm: Dark Days Ahead is a post-apocalyptic zombie survival roguelike game with procedural world generation. It is heavily focused on crafting and exploration. The game is set in near-future New England after a catastrophic event killed most of the human population and spawned various monsters and hazards.
Surviving is difficult: you have been thrown, ill-equipped, into a landscape now riddled with monstrosities of which flesh eating zombies are neither the strangest nor the deadliest. Unlike most roguelikes, it has no goal: the player is free to explore the procedurally generated map, clear areas of monsters, work with NPCs, and build shelters and vehicles.
The gameplay is mainly based on day-to-day survival, and the game tracks parameters like hunger, thirst, morale, illness and temperature which the player must manage to stay alive.
