TouchArcade Rating:

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!

Panmorphia: Awakened ($3.99)

iTunes Description

The legend goes that in each generation a child is born, a sentinel, bound to the land of Panmorphia and the four elements that govern it. The sentinels have the ability to wield each element and transform themselves into an animal that best represents it. With the use of the amulet they are able to combine all four elements and travel through the aether. They are called upon for help in times of need.

In the first adventure, you used your ability to wield each element and transform yourself into the animal that best represented it! That enabled you to alternate between the four perspectives and save the four trapped elements! In your second adventure, you visited the Lost Temple and upgraded the amulet to enable you to swap freely between the four elemental forms!
