The first couple days of this week were a bit slow for new releases, and the all of a sudden the folks over at the App Store approval center must have finally woken up. If you’re into action / stealth games you’ve got Splinter Cell Conviction from Gameloft. Fancy yourself a bit of a retro gamer? Check out the updated classic that started the franchise with Prince of Persia® Retro. How about a mad game of kart racing? The App Store has that covered as well with Crash Bandicoot Nitro Kart 2. Don’t quite have the budget for Splinter Cell or Crash? There are always some solid smaller titles like Pirate’s Treasure and Assault Squadron. Complete roundup after the gap!
Welcome to the inaugural post of a new article that should help consolidate the previous week’s game releases for the iPhone / iPod Touch (and possibly iPad). This past week [May 17 - May 23] saw the release of Shrek Forever After: The Game, a fairly standard looking platformer with a big green ogre as the protagonist. For the racing fans there’s Split/Second from Disney, the game that promises “if you can’t out run them, use the city to take them out”. One thing that’s great about the App Store is that there’s always a wide variety of new releases to choose from.
