Every day hundreds of new apps make their debut on the App Store, and hundreds more are updated or reduced in price. We have sifted through the noise and highlighted those select few that might be worth your attention.
VOTE!!! – (Free)
With only a few months left until this year’s election, the makers of Infinity Blade are making a push for gamers to get themselves registered to vote. This new, free game is the focus of that campaign, and allows you to pit the candidates against one another in battle – goofily beating each other up with oversized microphones and lightsabers. It’s a bit different than how you’ll see them acting in televised debates, no doubt, and it’s free – so why not check it out, and then go get yourself ready for November?
Lost Cities – ($3.99)
The latest in a long line of great physical games gone digital, ubiquitous game designer Reiner Knizia’s Lost Cities has you taking on opponents to send out expeditions to famous hidden civilizations around the globe. Will you bring back more treasures from the fabled Atlantis, or Shangri-La?
Star Wars Dice – ($4.99)
The latest app from that galaxy far, far away, Star Wars Dice is a companion for the X-Wing Miniatures Game and Fantasy Flight’s Star Wars Role-Playing Game – so you can forget about lugging around bags of physical dice and just let your iDevice do the rolling. (That’s more Star Wars futuristic, anyway.)
One Epic Knight – (Free)
The App Store’s latest endless runner, this one casts you as a cartoony knight dashing through dungeons and castles while dodging medieval traps.
The Curse – ($0.99)
When you accidentally unleash an ancient curse hidden within a magic book, it’s up to you to solve all the puzzles within its pages to undo what you’ve done.
Eufloria – ($2.99)
Originally launched as an iPad exclusive back in February, Omni Systems’ ambient strategy game is now available for iPhone owners as well.
Mikey Shorts – ($0.99)
Mikey is gaming’s latest platforming hero, and already the one most committed to wearing short pants. Help me on his adventure, won’t you?
Jelly Cannon Reloaded – ($0.99)
A partnership between Chillingo and Nickelodeon brought about this next game, which tasks you with launching bouncy jelly blobs around the screen.
Eternity Warriors 2 – (Free)
And our last new release for the day, it’s the sequel to last year’s first Eternity Warriors. Check out its trailer right here:
Abu’s Adventures – (Free)
No, sadly, this one doesn’t star the little fez-wearing monkey from Disney’s Aladdin. This Abu is a squirrel, and he’s hoping you’ll try his magical adventure for free today.
Banzai Dice – (Free)
If you looked at Star Wars Dice up there earlier and were disappointed that it wasn’t actually a game per se, try out Banzai Dice for free. It’s a good dice-gaming fix.
Cut the Rope – ($0.99)
If you haven’t been back to feed Om Nom some candy lately, jump back into Cut the Rope now – the little monster is preparing for that most candy-crazy holiday of Halloween with a new "Spooky Box" full of ghost-filled levels to play, courtesy of the new Version 1.0 update.
Order & Chaos Online – ($6.99)
Gameloft’s iOS MMO has just gotten a huge new content push that introduces PvP arena battling, new mounts, new dungeon content and banishes the old pay-to-play subscription model.
Angry Birds Space – ($0.99)
And we’ve of course got to stay on top of what Rovio’s up to. Their latest update brings new levels to Angry Birds Space that, through a partnership with NASA, include the Curiosity Mars Rover!
