New On iOS: Brains, Trains & Kickstarter Successes

New On iOS: Brains, Trains & Kickstarter Successes

It’s 11pm EST on another Wednesday night, which means one thing to iOS gamers…FRESH MEAT!

Yep, lots of new games to load up on those shiny new iPhone 5s, including a classic PC port to dual titles from Chillingo and Zephyr Games. There is also new pigskin action from Gameloft and a couple of successful Kickstarters finally releasing their apps.

Let us know which of these titles you’ll be picking up in the comments section below.

Universal

Jumpster™
G5 Entertainment

Free

G5 takes a big departure from their usual hidden object fare with this free-to-play level-based physics puzzle game. The game itself is free, but there are loads of power ups available as in-app purchases. Until we get some hands-on time, it is unclear just how necessary these power ups are, but the game looks fun.


Universal

NFL Pro 2013
Gameloft

Free

Gameloft returns to the gridiron with this year’s edition of their NFL Pro Franchise. Featuring 32 licensed NFL teams and revamped graphics, Gameloft is calling this year’s NFL Pro title ‘richer, more immersive and more realistic’. It is Free to play, so football fans will definitely want to give this one at least a few downs.


Universal

Dead Stop™
Chillingo Ltd

99¢

I seem to recall that there was some other title that combined zombies and tower defense, and that worked out pretty well, so I suspect thatChillingo will do just fine with Dead Stop™, especially as we head into October.


Universal

Electric Tentacle
Chillingo Ltd

99¢

Cute animals and electricity…what could possibly go wrong in this arcade-style high score game.


Universal

Legend of Fat Ninja
Zephyr Games

$1.99

After a successful Kickstarter Campaign, this nicely illustrated ‘how far can you fly’ type game makes it to the App Store.


Universal

Super Monsters Ate My Condo!

99¢

Everyone’s favorite condo-eating monsters are back in this fast-paced sequel featuring a two-minute time limit for some frantic fun.


Universal

Cartoon Wars Blade
GAMEVIL Inc.

99¢

I haven’t played any of the previous titles in Blue’s Cartoon Wars series, but it looks like they’ve handed over the publishing reigns to the capable GAMEVIL for this newest title in this beat-em-up/Action RPG/platformer.


Universal

Amazing Runner
Freyr Games

99¢

Endless runners are really saturating the app store, but Freyr Games is hoping that you have room for just one more, with their ‘unique tracks’, the addition of ‘a feeling of speed’ and gesture style controls including circling, tapping, tilting and swiping.


iPhone

ZENFORMS: Protectors
Calis Projects

$1.99

A 2D RPG with an anime/retro vibe. Players create a “custom looking character right from the start and can shape how your story unfolds by making choices in the game, becoming famous or infamous, becoming good or bad, or even forming relationships and friendships.”


iPhone

Kirin Wars
Zephyr Games

$1.99

The second title from Zephyr Games tonight, this is a retro turn-based tactical RPG set in the year ‘1598 AR’ and centered around “an epic tale of fate, magic, and war”. It currently features 35 commander types and 29 units to find and play as well as a lot of planned DLC.


Universal

God of Blades
White Whale Games

$2.99

Another product of a successful Kickstarter Campaign, this is a side-scrolling sword-fighting platformer. I played an early build of this and it was fun, but a little rough, so I’m curious to see how it has changed in the months since I saw it last as it showed some nice potential.


Universal

The Last Express
DotEmu

$4.99

Finally we have a title from DotEmu, doing what they do best…porting over a classic. This is a port of the award-winning 1997 PC adventure game from the creator of Prince of Persia. I’m embarrassed to admit I never played the PC release (especially since I was a PC gamer back then), but I think I may finally check this one out (on the iPad). I’ve heared it mentioned quite a few times over the past 15 years.
