Welcome to another round-up of the new mid-week iPhone and iPad releases.

As you should all know by now, we bring you this round-up because we're simply too busy to write a story for every single new game out.

Rob and Rich are both weaving their magic in the editing chair, the rest of the team are debating whether Alan Wake was a scary game, and I'm furiously typing up this little number.

It's another hot week for new iOS releases, with the likes of Jetpack Joyride, Draw Race 2, Crimson: Steam Pirates, and a couple of Chillingo titles all hitting the App Store.

All of the games below are now available to download from the New Zealand App Store, meaning you can pick them up in the UK and US from around midnight this evening.


Pocket RPG iPhone Edition

Pocket RPG iPhone Editon is, as you've probably already guessed, an iPhone version of the popular iPad game.

You'll be traversing randomly generated dungeons, collecting items and treasures, defeating bosses, and unlocking Game Center achievements.

Fruit Roll

Chillingo's Fruit Roll gives you the pleasure of squishing caterpillars, monkeys, frogs, and a host of other critters.
