Weekly iOS and Android release round-up: Smash Cops Heat, Into the Dead, Nitro Chimp, and more
Welcome to Pocket Gamer
's new round-up of the latest and greatest iPhone, iPad, and Android titles to hit the App Store and Google Play.
With this article, we're hoping to highlight an entire week's worth of great-looking new apps rather than just the titles that hit Apple's New Zealand App Store on a Wednesday.
