Wednesday night is big game night for all of us iOS gaming nuts, and there are some cool new games launching tonight to look out for. Let’s take a look at the big new iPhone and iPad game releases for June 2013 hitting the App Store around 11:00 PM EST.
50 Ways to Survive is the first game from developer Mass Threat and they've partnered up with the band Train to bring you this exciting new platformer.
Where's My Water? and Where's My Perry? were huge hits for Disney Interactive. But where does the company go from there? How could they possibly top two of their biggest blockbuster games? Easy, just go back to where it all began -- with Mickey Mouse.
It is time for the summer comic book movie blockbuster and of course there is an iOS movie tie-in game. The newest incarnation of Superman has been reborn at the box office to decent reviews and legions of fans hailing the renewed relevance of the strong man in red undies. But does this iOS game hit that blockbuster spot like the film?
Get ready for another word game headed your way. 2K and Cat Daddy Games have put together Beejumbled -- a free offering that's hoping to buzz its way onto the home screens of many smartphones. Think Bejeweled meets Scrabble, only with bees. It would seem you can combine bees with just about anything. Just ask Jerry Seinfeld.
The physics-puzzler, along with perhaps the endless runner, are the two most prevalent genres of game inside the App Store. They are just everywhere. And Chillingo is not shy about either. One could argue that Chillingo's strategy is much like the thinking behind start-up Internet companies.
Are you ready for another movie-based video game? Well, it doesn't matter, because Despicable Me: Minion Rush has already sped its way into the App Store. I never know what to make with these titles. NES games like Jaws and Total Recall set the precedent early on that the quality of the movie did not have to match up with the quality of the game. And since then, there's definitely been a stigma attached between games and movies (especially when it's going the other way). So what to make of a Despicable Me endless runner? On paper, it's not something I was getting too enthused about.
The old standby genre of the iOS is the tower defense game. It has come in every shape and form we can possibly conceive, but somehow we just can’t seem to get enough of them. Like the endless onslaught of enemies in any of these titles, the games keep flooding the App Store to be devoured by our eager iOS devices. But, to stand out from the crowd, Defense Technica has to have something up its sleeve to set it apart from the rest. With so many good tower defense games around, why should we bother with another?
Pyramus is a real-time strategy take on War of the Worlds, instead this time the humans are taking on the invading aliens in space. Armed with different ships, you must strategically maneuver and blast your way to victory to ensure mankind lives to see another day. Our world is always worth saving, but is Pyramus worth playing?
Don’t get crushed by the ever moving blocks in Radiangames’ new iOS game, Crush! This is the same company that brought us the 2012 iOS game of the year, Slydris. Will Crush! be 2013’s Game of the Year? Or will it, too, get crushed?
