It's another week which means another batch of new iOS games, and typically I'm pretty enthusiastic each and every week. I mean, even the "weakest" week always has a handful of gems, and your normal week usually has more great games than anyone can play. This week, though. My goodness. In case you aren't aware, Apple has been doing a Celebration of Indies promotion for the past week which has seen them highlight the release of an awesome new indie game each and every day. That means the concentration of higher profile releases is even greater this week than usual, and on top of that there's also the normal slew of releases which features a bunch of interesting stuff. It's an embarrassment of riches out there folks, so saddle up and check out the full list of new games below, and then be on the lookout for even more new releases through Apple's indie promotion through the weekend, which we'll be sure to highlight as well.
UPDATE: As if this week wasn't packed enough, rolly platformer The Big Journey has arrived and has been added to the list below.
UPDATE 2: Another new one, Twisty Sky from developer Elephant Mouse, has been added below. Please, just stop with the new games already, I want to go to bed!
