NOTE: Due to Christmas last week and the App Store being frozen, we skipped our regular Out Now post and have included any straggler new releases from last week in this week’s list. Enjoy!
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!

Cluck Night (Free)
At the Horror Farm of Cluck Night you can take the role of either a human or a chicken. A bunch of utterly bored aliens beamed up four fowl on a stroll and before tossing them back to Earth, made a couple of modifications to them. The extraterrestrial journey endowed them with peculiar abilities, which naturally has left mankind somewhat concerned. Who knows? With their powers they might try taking over the world! Being enslaved by their own clucking livestock was not a prospect that appealed to the humans. Hence, they took the sensible course of action—and locked the four offending fowl up in a specialized farm. The modifications they underwent may have granted them superfowl powers and advanced brainpower, but at the end of the day, they’re still just chickens. Will the poor birds escape from Horror Farm before sunrise? Or will mankind succeed in retaining their rightful place, at the top of the evolutionary chain?
