    Sega America

    The arcade classic returns after 30 long years! In the original game, your goal was to invade the huge fortress called Zaxxon. Now Sega is giving gamers a chance to finally escape! With pumped up graphics and a behind-the-ship perspective, it's old school meets new school and we can't wait to play it.

  • Burrito Bison

    Ravenous Games

    Ravenous Games is porting over the popular Flash game Burrito Bison to the App Store. Your goal is to launch a giant bull into a bunch candy gummies. Sounds weird? It is weird, which is why we can't wait to play it!

  • Grow Away!


    The second Chillingo title hitting the App Store this week is Grow Away!, a game where you fight off invadaing monsters by launching different kinds of vegetables at them. If your kid won't eat his greens, let them play this game so they'll know that vegetables are not only good for you, but good for killing monsters too!

    Everyone loves crazy stunts, and now you can live the life of a dangerous stuntman with Stunt Star: The Hollywood Years. Fly, flip, crash and pray you don't burn alive with this fun looking stuntman title. Jump over 100 buses while on fire on a moped? Eh, child's play.

    This might earn the Weird Game of the Week award. Play as Lemmy, trapped inside a mad scientist's body. Eating eyeball creatures helps you as you try and fight your way out. It has boss fights, cool graphics and simple touch controls. And it's from Microsoft, which is weird. Hey Microsoft, port over Halo already.
