Games of space domination, of animatronic mayhem, of pig-popping, toy-buying, dungeon crawling fun – this week’s new iPhone and iPad releases have it all.

Is you favorite iDevice all charged up? Do you have a pile of iTunes gift cards you’re ready to burn through? Then let’s begin:

Five Nights at Freddy’s 3

BOO! Did we scare you? Well it’s about time! After a Steam debut 10 days ago (and an Android release last week), Five Nights at Freddy’s has finally arrived on iOS. And yes, it’s the best FNAF yet. Read our review to find out why.

Angry Birds Stella POP!


Bubble-popping comes to the Angry Birds franchise, and I’ll bet those birds are relieved to finally put something other than their own buts in that slingshot.

Sick Bricks


Could this be the “Skylanders” of mobile? Creator Spin Master is hoping so. With toys available at retail that can be scanned in with your phone (and a fairly sizable ad campaign), Sick Bricks is poised to become the next big hit among kid gamers on mobile.

Sid Meier’s Starships


Sid Meier’s take on 4X space games has finally arrived, and it’s every bit as good as you’re hoping. Our full review will be coming soon, but here’s the short version: build and fight with fleets of spaceships in an attempt to conquer the galaxy, and stay glued to your iPad for hours on end while doing so.

Dungeon Hunter 5

Gameloft’s popular dungeon-crawling franchise is back, and this time they’ve infused a social element of “build your own dungeon / invade the dungeons of other players.”



An RPG without all that silly storytelling, QuestRun takes players from battle to battle without all that narrative fluff. It also has an endless/roguelike twist to it, as when your party dies you’ll need to start all over. Survive for as long as you can!

Buzz Aldrin’s Space Program Manager

If Sid Meier’s Starships is a little too “aggressive Star Trek” for you and not enough “NASA,” Buzz Aldrin has come to your rescue. Manage resources and make decisions to get to the Moon before the Soviets. BUY THIS UNLESS YOU HATE AMERICA.

Paper Dungeons

Describing itself as “a fantasy board game,” Paper Dungeons offers four different characters with four different styles of gameplay. BONUS: There’s also a map editor and campaign editor so you can create and share your own dungeons and stories.

Card Crawl

Shuffle, deal and survive in this card-based dungeon crawler with a solitaire influence.

Extreme Wheelchairing


Don’t let the title fool you; rather than an offensive “bad taste” kinda game, Extreme Wheelchairing is a fair, fun and challenging recreation of wheelchair maneuvering.

Paper Monsters Recut

If you’re a fan of Mario, you’ll have probably already discovered the joy of Paper Monsters on mobile. If not, today is a good day to rectify that. A highly-polished upgrade of the original is now available for download.



You’ll only have a certain number of bounces to reach the exit in each level. It sounds simple, doesn’t it? And yet so few games are.
