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!

Family Bash (Free)

iTunes Description

Family Bash tells the timeless story of the Family – the one we love, cherish, insult and despise. You arrive in the village hall of a small French town out in the sticks in Normandy to celebrate your grandfather’s birthday: he’s 90 years old, still “all there” and is the living memory of your family. Just as the party is shaping up to be fun, you find yourself at the centre of an intergenerational conflict with unforeseeable consequences. You begin to uncover the dark secrets and ulterior motives of the various members of your family. In Family Bash, a seemingly insignificant choice can change the relationships between your family members forever. So explore your surroundings and make choices, talk to your cousins, confront your uncle and find out about that mysterious will – for better or for worse.
