Editor’s Note: It’s a bit of a weird week for new releases, as last week was Christmas and the iTunes freeze and so there isn’t as many new games as there would be on a typical week. That said there were a few new games worth mentioning and even some stragglers from the last couple months of 2018 that we’ve included. Next week I’m guessing will be more back to normal, but for now enjoy the list of games we’ve scrounged up below!
Each and every day new mobile games are hitting the App Store, and so each week we put together a big old list of all the best new releases of the past seven days. Back in the day the App Store would showcase the same games for a week, and then refresh those features each Thursday. Because of that developers got into the habit of releasing their games throughout Wednesday or very early Thursday in order to hopefully get one of those coveted features spots. Nowadays the App Store refreshes constantly, so the need for everyone to release all on the same day has diminished. Still, we’ve kept our weekly Wednesday night format as for years that’s the time people knew to check TouchArcade for the list of new games. And so without further ado please check out the full list of this week’s new games below, and let us know in the comments section which games you’ll be picking up!

Cucumber Fields is a friendly game, based on a game that we played in our schoolyard when I was a child. The rules are simple. Build your land, collect gold, and cut your opponents land, to get points. The first player to reach the target score in the upper right corner wins.
To master the game you need physical skills, but especially when you get better the game gets tactical. The game is very challenging at higher skill levels, and you really have to plan your moves. Although the game is challenging, it’s still not stressful. You will meet an AI opponent that tries to think and act better than you, in a nice and harmonic way. There is no boss mode, but trust me, you might lose anyhow.
