Mid-week iOS releases: Wraithborne, Swipe the Deck, Storm the Train, and more


New iPhone, iPad, and Android Games iPhone, thumbnail 1
Welcome back to Pocket Gamer's round-up of the latest iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad mid-week releases.

As you all probably know by now, we produce this article each week because we're simply too busy to bring you a story on every single new game that hits the App Store.

These games have recently hit Apple's New Zealand outlet, meaning they should be available to download in the UK and US from around midnight this evening.


Super Tiny Leap
By The Game Atelier - download free for iPhone

Your aim in Super Tiny Leap is to answer one simple question: How far can a tiny robot climb with the help of a skilful player?

This lovely-looking pixel-art game (which is already available in the UK, by the way) features three different game modes, including a Basic mode that offers unlimited play.


By Crescent Moon Games - buy for iPhone and iPad

Wraithborne is an Unreal Engine-powered hack 'n' slash title similar in style to Gameloft's early Dungeon Hunter games, as well as to the forthcoming Infinity Blade Dungeons game.

In Crescent Moon's new title, you take control of Wraithborne, an experienced warrior tasked with saving the world from wraiths, goblins, and werewolves.

My Little Pony - Friendship is Magic

By Gameloft - download free for iPhone and iPad

Nightmare Moon has escaped imprisonment and is spreading darkness across the beautiful lands of Ponyville. Playing as Twilight Sparkle and her friends, you must stop Nightmare Moon.

You do this by aiding Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, Applejack, and others as they attempt to rebuild Ponyville. Oh, and by completing several mini-games.

My Little Pony - Friendship is Magic features voice talent from the franchise's TV show.

Swipe the Deck
By Chillingo - buy for iPhone and iPad

Swipe the Deck is an intriguing mix of poker and match-three puzzling. Basically, you have to create poker hands by moving and switching cards on a 7x7 grid.

You can play against a computer-controlled opponent or battle it out with your real-world buddies. Power-ups will give you the upper hand.

Word Smack

By Electronic Arts - download free for iPhone and iPad

Word Smack is a two-player word game that features plenty of helpful power-ups and loads of elements familiar to fans of logic puzzles.

Your aim is to construct as many five-letter words as you can across three increasingly challenging rounds, and earn more points than your Facebook pals.

Storm the Train
By Chillingo - download free for iPhone and iPad

Your mission in this action-packed side-scrolling shooter is to climb on board a speeding train and wipe out the hordes of zombies, robots, and ninjas that are roaming around in it.

There are three different gun-toting super-agents from which to choose, and a whole bunch of powerful vehicles to take control of. These include jetpacks and a helicopter.

You can spend the coins that you earn as you play on new clothes, items, and weapons.

Word Smack reminds me of the American game show "Lingo".

Also, Basic Mode in Super Tiny Leap doesn't offer unlimited play, it offers 10 plays a day unless you cough up for the full version (which admittedly is only 69p).

I may be wrong, but looking at that Word Smack screenshot, you're supposed to guess a specific 5-letter word, not just make random 5-letter words like the write up suggests. It looks like Mastermind (the old peg game) with letters instead of colours. Green = right letter, right place; gold = right letter, wrong place.
