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!

Mindsweeper: Puzzle Adventure

iTunes Description

CAN YOU RECOVER THE MISSING MEMORIES?

When you wander into someone’s mind it is hard to distinguish memory from imagination…

Soon after the Genetic Plague was released, Dr. Amy Harris successfully found a cure. Unfortunately, someone broke into the government lab, stole the formula, and infected Dr. Harris. As a mind sweeper, my job is to dive into Amy’s disappearing mind in hope of finding the formula before it is too late…

Photographs

iTunes Description

I think you should play Photographs.

I tried to make it a little bit different from most games. It sort of mixes puzzle and narrative in a ( hopefully ) interesting way. You might get stuck on some puzzles, but you should never not know what you need to do to proceed.

So what do you actually do? Well, you search around and solve puzzles, and as you do so you’ll be developing a scene in front of you and hearing a story. I want to the story to really stand out, so the game has got really beautiful pixel art and top notch music, combined with gameplay and narrative beats that individually would do a pretty good job of telling that story, but come together to really make something special.

Press/Release

iTunes Description

Press/Release is a tongue-in-cheek commentary on the simplicity of button mashing.

While we have an appreciation for button mashers, the idea behind Press/Release was to remove the veil of theming and make a game that was LITERALLY about the act of pressing, and releasing, a button.

THE button simulator you’ve been dreaming of!

The 7th Guest: Remastered

iTunes Description

The famous game remastered in a new 25th Anniversary Edition! Henry Stauf’s mansion has been abandoned for as long as anyone dare remember. Stauf was a master toy maker, a maker of amazing puzzles and this strange, eerie, mansion was his greatest creation. It stands empty, rotting ever since children started dying with his toys near them, ever since six guests came and were never seen again.

Now, you are in the house, moving from one room to another, trying to remember and trying to forget. Because Stauf’s game isn’t over. There were six guests the world knew about – and there was one other. The mansion of horror comes to life again and only you can end this mad nightmare and learn the secret of the 7th guest.
