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!

Ghost Jump Go! (Free)
Ghost Jump Go! is an endless jumper with a color twist. You jump upwards a tower made of beautiful pixel art. The Ghost floats across the screen from left to right. Above is a ceiling made of colored blocks. Every time the Ghost changes direction it randomly picks a color from the ceiling blocks. This gives you one length of a room to react. You can only jump through blocks of the Ghost’s current color. Reaching a new floor adds points to your score. The most fun is to master the art of entering and leaving a floor with no more than one turn. If you do so you fill up your combo orb and subsequently multiply your score.
