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!
Here, upon the ruins of a once-great civilization, scavengers fight for treasure and glory.

However, it was short-lived as war broke out and the preservation plan collapsed. The only things left on that bloody beach are massive ruins, competing scavengers, and endless opportunities… Gear up and get ready to enter the hot zone of riches and danger.
