(Pricing and links will be made available when the games hit the U.S. App Store.)
Need For Speed: Most Wanted
Seriously, it's a Need For Speed game. Do you honestly need a reason to buy it? Most wanted is now available in the App Store and has gotten rave reviews. It's a hefty download, so make sure you're on Wi-Fi when you download it. Outrun the cops and stay ahead of the pack. (Sorry pal, the GT-R is mine. Get your own car.)
This Starfox inspired shooter looks amazing. The graphics alone are a selling point and the action looks incredibly intense. Take down an evil race called the Guardians with six different ships that you can upgrade with 10 different weapons. Sign us up. We're in. It'll be on sale for $0.99 for the first 24 hours before it goes up to $4.99.
Heads Up! Hot Dogs
Well, it's an Adult Swim title, which means it's about as weird and stupid an idea as one could think of. But as weird and stupid as their games seem, they're always a lot of fun. In Heads Up! Hot Dogs you have to get hot dogs, bagels and other meats safely on the heads of people walking by. Ya, we don't get it either, but we're going to download it anyway.
Lead a team of soldiers in battle as they try and take down an evil galactic empire. Outer space must be filled with evil empires because there sure do seem to be a lot of them in outer space video games. Sci-Fi Heroes has over 40 levels spread across four different planets. To victory, my outer space friends! To victory!
Madden NFL 13 Social
What's this? A Madden game? For free? Madden NFL 13 Social lets you play against your friends via Facebook, allowing you to have multiple games going at the same time. With real NFL players, improved 3D graphics and all 32 NFL teams, you'll be end zone dancing all day long.
Sneezeman is an interesting looking side-scrolling runner where you must try and and escape the sneeze cloud that's following you. Do this by running, jumping and floating your way over 60 different levels.
Pizza is so popular it's being delivered all over the galaxy, and it's your job to make sure you've got the best team of pizza deliverers in the universe. Let's be honest, there are weirder games on this list than one about outer space pizza delivery guys.
In Coin Army you flick coins at tanks, fighter jets and anything else trying to take you out. If coins won't do the job, then flick death rays, nukes and more at the enemy. It's a free title from Chillingo, so make sure you pick it up.
If you've run out of monster capturing card games, then don't worry, Monster Warlord will help fill that void. At least until another monster capturing card game is released next week. Combine monsters, battle bosses and whatever else you do in these games.
What a weird name for a cool looking game. Use magnets, rockets and more as you create the craziest roller coaster tracks you can think of. We love roller coasters, so we're ready to jump on board. Might be hard to play with our hands in the air though, so we'll just scream the entire time.
The iBomber series is back and better than ever! Jump in your tank and cruise around Europe blowing up everything that gets in your way. Blow up stuff that isn't in your way, too! With 24 missions, you'll be causing property damage for hours.
Dexter the Game 2
The sequel to Dexter the Game is here and fans of the show will get to play as their favorite forensics/serial killer character once again. The game takes place in an open world Miami, and new suspects and crime scenes are generated each time you play. The game is also voiced by series star Michael C. Hall.
Halo 4: King of the Hill
What do Mountain Dew, 7-11, Doritos and Halo have in common? They're all participating in this weird social junk food game. Head to your local 7-11 and scan bags of Doritos and packs of Mountain Dew for in-game content. Have fun scanning your way out of the store when the clerks think you're stealing. Apparently Microsoft thinks that every gamer lives on a diet of Mountain Dew and Doritos. And Microsoft would be correct.
Heartland is a game based on a TV show that no one has ever heard of. It's a time management game where you play as Amy and Lou Fleming, who live on their grandfather Jack's horse ranch. There are 40 levels in eight different locations. Train a variety of different horses and take some time to check out the mini-games as well.
Jonah Lomu Rugby Challenge: Gold Edition
In Rugby you ... grab the ball and run? No, wait ... you kick it? How in the heck do you play this game again? Guess it's time for us lazy Americans to learn a new full contact sport besides football and ice skating.
Knights of Pen and Paper
A retro-style RPG, you control not only the players, but the dungeon master as well. There are 12 different classes, 17 characters, over 100 quests, 50 monsters and more. If you're looking for an in-depth RPG to fill in some downtime at work, then look no further.
Slide Circus looks like an interesting puzzle game. Slide the tiles around the screen to try and make the scrambled picture whole again. It looks like it could be fun and frustrating at the same time.
Creatorverse isn't so much a game as it is a way for you to practice your creating skills. You're given a set of tool in which you can create simple physics toys and games. You can then share your creations online. If someone make a Halo 5 out of this thing, they're going to be filthy rich.
Play as your favorite character from Borderlands in this mobile semi-port of the popular console game. With thousands of different weapons, 36 unique powers and random missions, you can take your console love of Borderlands wherever you go.
