A lot of awesome new releases are hitting the App Store this week, including a new shooter in a popular franchise, a new Grand Theft Auto game 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.)

  • Snowjinks

    Uppercut Games

    Nothing beats hearing little kids beg for mercy in a real life snowball fight, but torturing bratty kids on your iPhone or iPad is a close second with Snowjinks.

  • Hollywood Monsters


    This looks like a great adventure game where you play as a pair of reporters on assignment at a monster's ball, where all of the top Hollywood monster talent is attending. Check out that beautiful animation. Can't wait to play this one!

  • Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour


    Holy crap, does this game look good. It came out too late for our 2012 Awards, but we're betting it would give the other games in the action category a run for their money. Lock and load with this killer new entry in the popular Modern Combat franchise.

  • Grand Theft Auto: Vice City

    Rockstar Games

    It's finally here. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, the game that ruled the world of consoles, can now be played in the palm of your hand. Isn't technology wonderful? We can't wait to run from the cops and bash people's heads in. Oh, gaming. We love you.

  • Minigore 2: Zombies

    Mountain Sheep

    Anarchy. That's the one word we can use to describe the sequel to Minigore. Minigore 2 ups the ante with so many characters attacking you on screen at once, you'll think you're totally screwed. Lucky for you, you've got all kinds of awesome weapons to help you take them out. This is one zombie game we can't wait to play!

  • The Adorables


    A colorful Pachinko-style game similar to Peggle? Well, where do we sign up and how many hours a day can we play before the boss finds out we're not working?

  • I Hate Zombies


    Pick a vehicle and run over as many zombies as you can, for as long as you can. Boy, the planet really loves to zombies, doesn't it? What a shock that there are multiple zombie games coming out in one week.

  • Mutant Mudds

    Renegade Kid

    An old-school looking 2D platformer with 60 levels across five worlds and eight different themes. All to some sweet chip-tunes sounds.

  • Mighty Wardens

    Demonual Studios

    A side-scrolling beat 'em up where you take on hordes of monsters! Marvel! At the Animation! Cheer! For the intense action! Pay! With your wallet if you wanna play it!

  • Bunny Cannon

    Not Doppler

    It's another Peggle type game, but this one has cute, adorable bunnies! Awwwwww, we wanna play with the bunnies!! WE SAID WE WANT TO PLAY WITH THE BUNNIES NOW!

  • Aeon Hero Wars

    Donoma Games

    Aeon Hero Wars is a free-to-play strategy game. There are over 55 heroes for you to choose as you duke it out in epic multiplayer battles. Sign us up!

  • Devil's Creed

    Yuheng Software

    Here's the official game description: "Hold dragon to destroy all the enemies. Appreciate devil prince and human girl’s love. With the blood of the enemy awakening you the most pure evil force!" Sounds good to us! Bring it on!

  • Into the Dead


    An endless runner that's in the first person? So we'll either be really excited while playing or really sick. We've got a garbage can right next to us just in case.

  • Nitro Chimp


    An endless racer where you're a monkey on a motorcycle? Eh, whatever. It's a Chillingo game, which means it's going to be wacky and fun. So we're in.

  • Tiny Legends: Heroes


    The sequel to Crazy Knight, where you must destroy the evil dark lord Necralis before he does something terrible to the land. Which is what dark lords tend to do. Maybe these guys just need a hug +4?

  • Smash Cops Heat


    The heat is on, on the street / Inside your head, on every beat / And the beat's so loud, deep inside / The pressure's high, just to stay alive. Ok, enough Glenn Frey. But you should play this song in the background as you're smashing up cars.

  • Man in a Maze


    Collect the dots and avoid the bots as you try and win this wacky game show. You'll guide Chuck the contestant through 40 sections of an elaborate maze. Can you win the grand prize?
