Starting things off, you may have a sense of deja-vu seeing Smash Cops from newcomer Hutch Games on the list again this week. That’s because this title was only available for less than a day before it was pulled due to administrative reasons. Fortunately this fun and unique racing title is back again this week.
Chillingo offers up two more titles this week, Order Up!! To Go and Greedy Penguins™. Order Up!! To Go is a frenetic time management game where you must cook up orders and attempt and upgrade your restaurants as you attempt to build your empire. Greedy Penguins™ is a physics-based puzzle game involving a cute and colorful band of gluttonous penguins.
For those of you into puzzle games, Puzzlejuice looks to offer something a bit new and different, combining elements of both the classic match-3 and word games. “Multicolored BLOCKS constantly fall from the top of the screen and it’s up to you to arrange them. Once you complete a row with these blocks they will turn into LETTERS! The only way to clear out these blocks is to spell WORDS. Oh and also you can MATCH COLORS—that will make letters too.”
Futuremark Games Studio releases their tongue-in-cheek tower-defense game, Unstoppable Gorg which pays homage to vintage sci-fi movies from the 1950s. “Flying saucers, rubbery aliens, dodgy effects, it’s got them all.”
There are also a couple of realy charming looking platformers, Bulkypix’s JAZZ: Trump’s journey which follows the adventures of a young, star-struck jazz musician, in love with the lovely Lady Poppy. The other is Niko (from sulake) which features and adorable looking title character who must “race through the dangerous Otherworld in hopes of rescuing his captured friends”.
Finally, rounding out this week’s new releases are Time of Heroes, a 3D turn-based strategy game from smuttlewerk interactive, Letters from Nowhere, the latest hidden object genre title from G5 Entertainment, and the iOS debut of NamcoBandai Games’ classic arcade fighter SOULCALIBUR (at the hefty price of $11.99!).
