Tonight’s New iPhone and iPad Games You Should Know About

A long-anticipated tactics game from Square-Enix, and a much-discussed shooting game that’s struggled to overcome Apple’s new policies both hit the App Store tonight. For very different reasons, we’re pretty sure you’ll want to give both a download.

And if that’s not your cup of tea, don’t worry – there are a few other suggestions thrown into the mix, too. Be sure to check back with us tomorrow morning for the full round-up of notable games that released overnight.

Heavenstrike Rivals


Square Enix had promised “later this month,” and considering this is the last big release night of February… it seems like a sure thing, right? Not quite, because you don’t have to wait for the last big release night: it’s gone live a few hours early and you can download it now. Tactical RPG meets the free-to-play model. It should be interesting to see the results.

Overkill 3


What was once a popular 2D shooting gallery game has evolved into a third-person, cover-based shooter. Fans of past Overkill games needn’t worry, as all of the staples that made those games great have been retained in the series transformation. Is it a sure shot for new players too? Find out in our review later this week.

Magic Touch: Wizard for Hire


Need a little more Nitrome in your life? We don’t blame you in the least. With Platform Panic and Gunbrick under their belts already for 2015, it’s really shaping up to be their year. This latest is a defense game about drawing spells with your finger. BONUS: You don’t even have to wait until tonight. The game is out, and free, right now.

Hell: Fight for Gilrand


If you’re a a strategy gamer, this should be alarmingly high on your radar this week. A co-production between Hunted Cow and Slitherine, players fight for control of a fantasy landscape as either heroes or demons. If you have friends with the PC version, don’t worry – Hell supports cross-platform multiplayer.
