Welcome back to Game Friday, folks!
If you’ve been in withdrawal then I’m happy to report that we have a sweet set of games for you this week. And we miss your recommendations too, so let us know what you’ve been playing this past week after you read.
In the wake of our grand unveiling of iPad.AppStorm, we’re also shuffling some other things around here to keep the content dynamic. Among these adjustments is the fact that this Game Friday column will now move to a bi-weekly schedule to make room for some more in-depth reviews. So keep an eye out for those, but don’t be dismayed: this new schedule also means we can bring you only the cream of the crop every other Friday, so it’s a win-win scenario.
In the meantime, you’re encouraged to keep sending us email tips and feedback; we love getting them and hope you continue to enjoy Game Fridays! Now with all that out of the way, let’s dive into this week’s selection…
As a result of what will always be remembered as the worst release week in the history of the App Store, try as we might we were unable to find a single new game worth playing for you. We’re very sorry.
On the bright side, there’s always the option of resorting to past titles or playing board games. We also recommend knitting if you need to relax.
…Yes, we’re kidding. Happy April Fool’s Day, everyone. Click through to have a look at some truly great new titles that we’ve discovered this week!
The warmer weather has brought with it some fantastic new App Store games, including a tropical new Angry Birds flavour.
We’ve got that and more in this week’s roundup, and lucky for all you folks in the UK, Canada, and so forth who are only lining up now to get your hands on the iPad 2, all of these titles are very addictive and will easily burn off the excess hours for you — so dive in!
Since we’ve featured a good number of premium titles over the past few weeks, we figured it’d be nice to lighten the load on your wallets a bit and showcase some of the recent free titles that have impressed us.
This week’s picks are therefore completely free, so you’ve got nothing to lose by checking them out. And if you think free games aren’t as fun as paid ones…think again!
Spring is in the air (I know this because there’s a St. Patrick’s Day edition of Angry Birds Seasons out) and that means that all nature’s glories are emerging from the winter gloom: birds, trees, iPad 2s…
If you happen to be enjoying the weather (standing in line) out in the wilderness (beside an Apple Store) and need some extra help distracting yourself from what’s around you, we offer the following collection of excellent titles — careful though, some of these are obscenely addictive!
Seems like March has snuck up on us this year, and with the announcement of the iPad 2 and the “year of the iPad 2″, it will be interesting to see what that means for portable games.
While we wait though, here are some excellent new titles that are worth playing!
As we bid farewell to February and keep our eyes peeled for the upcoming iPad 2 announcement at the beginning of next month, it seems appropriate that we’ve had a very interesting week of game releases.
We’ve gathered up a few of the best, so have a look and make sure to let us know if you’ve come across others!
As always, a variety of new titles coming at you today as we round up some of the best iOS games that you may not have noticed.

With Cupid closing in on us, I’m certain that many of you have been perusing the flood of Valentine’s updates to many of the major games like Angry Birds, Cut The Rope, etc. so rather than bore you with the obvious selections this week, we’ve gathered a few new titles that may have flown under the radar.
If you’ve caught some others then get in touch and let us know, but in the meantime, have a look at this week’s roundup!
