Original story follows…
Thanks to time zones and spinning planets, we can get an early sneak peek of tonight's new iOS games by poking around the New Zealand App Store.
Check the front page for the biggest games, or read on for the best of the rest. Also, we'll update the story tomorrow when more games inevitably hit the App Store.
By Kempt Ltd - Free
A feisty top-down racer with a hint of Mashed and other such games. It's all about performing stunts mid-race to get boosts, and unleashing weapons to deal with enemies. Check out Peter's video, above.
Move the Walls
By BeaverTap Games - Free
BeaverTap is best known for games like Mikey Shorts, but these days it has turned to time-sink freebies like Radical. This one does what it says on the tin: move the spike-lined walls to get a paper plane to safety.
4x4 Jam HD
By Invictus Games. - £2.29 / $2.99
Invictus makes some good games. And this good-looking, mud-churning, off-road racer should be worth a look. We'll have a video of the game real soon, and hopefully a full review too. Here's hoping for some mobile Motorstorm.
Dead Among Us
By Rolocule Games - Free
We played, and enjoyed, this free to play zombie shooter at Pocket Gamer Connects in Bangalore. It's a bit like those deer hunting games, but with zombies instead of real world mammals so your ethics don't have to be questioned.
Warriors of Nom Nom
By Erickson Garayblas - Free
This game takes the idea of an idle clicker, and turns it into a manic RPG battler as you race against cartoon competitors to munch on different foods. If you think you can tap an iPad faster than anyone else, go get this game.
By Garren Riemenschneider - Free
A cute turn-based strategy game with online multiplayer and lots of different units, battlefields, and tactics. It's free to play though, so maybe you should expect more Clash of Clans than Advance Wars.

Looks like we jumped the gun on this one last Wednesday. This cute word 'em up from the studio behind Candy Crush is out for real this week and is actually available worldwide, now.
It's about linking letters to make words, as you traipse across the mouse world. Which is a real place. Trust me.
By Halfbrick - Free
Fruit Ninja developer Halfbrick is taking a break from smashing up strawberries for a freebie about abseiling down risky mountains and buildings. Looks fun, and is surely packed with all the unlockables, sub-missions, and rewards that kept us playing Jetpack Joyride for months.
Ben 10 Omniverse: Alien Run
By Reliance Big Entertainment - Free
Is Ben 10 still cool? Do kids still like him? Or has he been replaced by Minecraft and selfies and loom bands? What do you mean loom bands aren't cool?! Are kids still playing wiIth Pokemon cards? Pogs? Slinkies? A ball on a string? A piece of reindeer shoulder blade, modelled into a pair of crude dice?
Robbery Bob 2: Double Trouble
By Chillingo - £2.29 / $2.99
Oh that Robbery Bob, always getting himself into trouble. I guess we'll have to play a bunch of stealth-themed puzzles, as we try to burgle every building in town. Check it out in motion in Peter's video, above.
