Rovio, Zynga, Ubisoft, SEGA : all the big dogs came out to play this week. There will be winners and there will be losers, but if you ask us, these 10 games are the new releases you’re most likely to enjoy spending your time with this week.

Angry Birds Stella

screen1024x1024[1]A fresh coat of paint and a new set of birds, and Angry Birds Stella has finally arrived to breathe new life into a now five-year-old formula. Will it succeed? It’s a free download, so you can find out for yourself without spending a dime.

NFL Showdown

screen1136x1136[1]Zynga’s NFL game is here, and like they promised, it’s all about strategy. Imagine Championship Manager, but for American football.

Mikey Boots

screen1136x1136[1]The third entry in the Mikey Shorts series, Mikey slaps on a pair of rocket boots this time around to give players a brand new experience that sets itself apart from the series past entries.

Super Monkey Ball Bounce

screen1136x1136[1]SEGA gets on the Peggle train a little late, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be any fun. If you’re a fan of games like Papa Pear Saga, you’re going to want to give this one a try.

Valiant Hearts: The Great War

screen1136x1136[1]A truly moving story set in World War I, you can read our Valiant Hearts: The Great War review based on the PC version released earlier this year to get a good feel for what it’s all about. BONUS: The mobile version has rethought the controls to take advantage of what touch screens can do.

Ugly Americans

screen1136x1136[1]Do you watch Ugly Americans? I’m so out of touch that I hadn’t even heard of it until this game came out, but hey – it looks funny and offer narrative-based play. I’m in.

All Star Quarterback

screen1136x1136[1]Zynga might have simulation sports covered this week, but what if you’re looking for something a little more hands-on? Full Fat – the makers of great sports games like King of the Course and Flick Golf – have just released their latest take on the ol’ pigskin game.


screen1136x1136[1]A minimalist puzzle game? We see a lot of those on the App Store, so why does Colorbs stand out? How about this: it’s from One Minute Games, the developer of Commander Pixman.

LEGO Star Wars: The New Yoda Chronicles

screen1136x1136[2]If LEGO games are your thing, here’s another one! And unlike a lot of them, this one happens to be free.

Gemini Strike

screen1136x1136[1]As a publisher, Armor Games tends to have an eye for quality. We’re hoping that holds out with the launch of Gemini Strike, a new finger-pushing shmup.
