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!
Ready to master flavor like a top chef? Get creative, discover ingredients, see your name on the leaderboards, and learn from top chefs along the way.
Chef League is a game of solving flavor problems. In each challenge, chefs explain what a dish needs. Maybe it needs salt, fat, sweetness, a crunch, or spice. Competing against two other players, you choose an ingredient to improve the recipe.
Your flavor designs can win if other players vote for them, or through “AI Chef Coach" scoring, which scores your answers based on over a million descriptive reviews of real recipes. The game was created as a fun way to learn by a scientist at Harvard University who studies flavor and works with chefs to learn how they categorize and improvise taste elements.
