I’m still feeling fatigued from last week’s crazy onslaught of new releases, but here we are again already with another massive batch of iOS games on our plate. Not only are we catching the tail end of Apple’s Celebrating Indies promotion which brought forth several more big-time indie game releases, but this also marks the long-awaited release of Death Road to Canada which is one of the most eagerly-anticipated releases of the past few years. Maybe if we ask nicely Apple will give us a week off from new releases so we can try and play a little catch up? As always, you can catch the full list of this week’s new iOS game releases below, so check ’em all out and let us know in the comments or in our Discord chat which game’s you’ll be playing this week!
