14 New iPhone and iPad Games You Should Be Playing This Week

By Jim Squires |

Sometimes a game seems to disappear in the ether. Announced, soft-launched, and later pulled, it almost becomes a thing of myth. Such was the case of Hitman: Sniper.

But as of today, Hitman: Sniper is very much real.

And it’s not alone! There are 14 new games this week that we think are worthy of your attention, so find your favorite and get playing.

Hitman: Sniper

You Must Build A Boat


The sequel to 10000000 promises to be bigger and better in every way — especially if you felt the original was sorely lacking in watercraft.

Apples to Apples


This game of silly matches was so popular that it inspired an X-rated imitator in Cards Against Humanity. If you prefer your fun a little more family-friendly, or if you’d simply like to see where it all started, Apples to Apples has finally received a digital adaptation that we can all enjoy in our pockets.

AlphaBetty Saga

Spelling meets falling blocks in the latest game from King and — I’m sorry, what’s that? It’s already #1 on the App Store? I suppose I don’t need to tell you anything else then; it sounds like you’re already playing it.

Terminator Genisys: Revolution

Glu has put out some masterful third-person shooters lately (hello, Frontline WW2), so we have high hopes for the game that brings their touch to the world of Terminator. If you’re excited for the upcoming film, this is probably a great way to whet your appetite.

Radical Rappelling

The latest release from Halfbrick brings the studio back to basics, offering a game of endless survival that channels the spirit (but not the gameplay) of their earlier release Jetpack Joyride.

Move the Walls

So many microgames have you trying to dodge your way through walls. Move the Walls does things a little differently, tasking players to… well, you get it.

Dude Perfect 2


Based on the popular YouTube channel, this sequel to the already successful Dude Perfect game continues the basketball throwing physics-puzzle fun.

Blades of Brim

The makers of Subway Surfers are back, and this time they’ve brought combat and dragons with them. Say what you will about endless runners, but Blades of Brim isn’t exactly last year’s model.

Riff the Robot

A mix of pinball and pachinko, created by a new studio formed of former NewToy (Words With Friends) developers? Yes please.

Ember Conflict


Real-time strategy and real-time multiplayer get a line-drawing twist in this new team-based battle game.

Robbery Bob 2: Double Trouble

Sneak, steal, repeat. The repeat part is what makes it a sequel. If you’re a fan of the original Robbery Bob (or just stealth games in general), you’ll want to check out Double Trouble.

Warriors of Nom Nom


Clicker games and competitive eating come together. Finally. I mean… the whole genre started with Cookie Clicker. Isn’t competitive eating just its logical conclusion?

Inch By Inchinch by inch

Guide an inchworm to its destination while being mindful of a moving block. Its next move can spell doom for your adorable little friend.
