iOS New Releases This Week: Karateka, Anomaly Korea + More
A lot of awesome new releases are hitting the App Store this week, including the return of an old karate classic, a new puzzle game from the creators of Cut the Rope and more. These games will be available to download just after 11:00 PM Eastern time in the U.S., if they haven't already come out. Let's take a look at the new releases for this week! (Pricing and links will be made available when the games hit the U.S. App Store.)
The Lords of Midnight
This classic 1984 adventure game is finally making its way to iOS. Retro fans will be happy to once again gather knights on a quest to defeat the evil Doomdark, the Witchking of Midnight. A sequel, Doomdark's Revenge, is expected also be released. Now hurry up and release Leather Goddesses of Phobos. We never did beat that stupid game.
One of the most anticipated tower attack sequels is here with new units and powers for you to use. Our boss has been playing this non-stop and he won't shut up about it. (And he hates everything, including when we talk about him in news posts.)
The Jordan Mechner classic that sucked hours and hours of our time as kids is finally coming to iOS in all its re-imagined glory! We've been waiting for this title ever since it was announced and we can't wait to punch stupid bad guys and hawks in the face. We just hope the princess is a bit nicer this time and doesn't flatten us if we approach her in a threatening stance.
You've heard of that tiny little puzzle game Cut the Rope, right? The one that features Om Nom? Of course you have. Well developers ZeptoLab have a brand new puzzle game called Pudding Monsters where you have to unite various gelatinous blobs into one giant pudding mess. It looks like it'll be just as much fun as Cut the Rope.
Let's see ... swords? Check. Monsters? Check. Fantasy adventure? Check. Awesome graphics? Check. An open world which is possibly the biggest ever in an iOS game? Check. Us playing it non-stop throughout the holidays? Double check.
A multiplayer frag fest where you gather up some friends and go to war. Assemble your squad, pick your weapons and duke it out. The colorful and cartoony graphics will have you smiling while your insides boil after some kid annihilates your entire team.
The Lost Treasures of Infocom
Remember earlier in this list when we asked for Leather Goddesses of Phobos to come out? THEY LISTENED. Now we can play that and 26 other classic Infocom titles in this iOS compilation originally released in 1991. All of the Zork titles? All of the classic text adventure games that drove us insane back in the day? Now here? To play on our iPhones and iPads? There is a Santa Claus!!
Power Rangers Legends
How'd we miss this? We knew it was coming out but it quietly snuck into the App Store on the 14th. Those damn sneaky Power Rangers! Let's just pretend it came out this week, ok? Choose your favorite Ranger and fight Rita's henchmen in an Infinity-Blade style game. The Pink Ranger is the hottest. Don't bother trying to debate us. It's free for a limited time so grab it now.
Help Nemo and his father Marlin build the perfect home for themselves and their friends! Join Dory, Gill, Bubbles and more crazy underwater creatures as you discover new things under the sea and collect over 50 new fish species to decorate your home. It's like Martha Stewart, but for Nemo fans!
Final Fantasy IV
Ok, ok. It's finally here. You can shut up already about it. Geez. We get it. Awesome RPG that you can play in the palm of your hands using the 3D graphics from the Nintendo DS version. Will you just download it already and stop bothering us?
Who wants some Wang? We do!! We want Wang 24/7! We've been dreaming of Wang for weeks and we're finally going to get our two hands on some! Some Lo Wang that is! This classic FPS has been ported over to iOS, with all the blood, guts and stupid Wang jokes classic shooter fans remember. Best of all? They didn't put a price tag on it! FREE WANG FOR EVERYONE!!!!!!
Where's My Holiday?
If you've beaten Where's My Water? and Where's My Perry? but are still jonesin' for some new Water fun, then Where's My Holiday? has you covered. Where's My Holiday features 12 new holiday-themed levels featuring Swampy and Perry. Now you've got something to do after eating that giant Christmas dinner!
Car Jack Streets: Directors Cut
Play as Randal Meyers, a man who must try and stay alive, pay back the mob and rise to the top of the criminal underworld. Sound like a familiar plot? Eh, who cares. You drive around and shoot up anyone who gets in your way. Sounds like a good time to us!
It has sushi in it. Who cares what it's about? We're downloading it!
A really nice looking side-scroller where you chop and slice your way past hundreds of enemies. Sorry, no Robert DeNiro or cool car chase scenes. That's a different Ronin.
Last Knight HD
It's an endless jousting game! Where you ... joust a lot! Woohoo for jousting! (Sorry, we got nothing.)
Super Mega Worm vs. Santa 2
The sequel to Super Mega Worm Vs Santa, with 15 new levels, two game modes, three destructive abilities, three new music tracks and one giant ass worm.
An endless runner with sleighs. Well this list can't get any weirder.
WTF is this s**t??? Screw this, we're going home for the day. You're on your own.
