It’s the middle of the week, and that means it’s time for our roundup of all the best new iOS games to hit the App Store in the past 7 days. As always it’s a busy week, but I can’t think of another week that had so darn many big name releases that dropped pretty much out of nowhere. Of course Reigns: Her Majesty is a biggie, and we actually DID expect that one, but not until tomorrow, so its early release caught us by surprise. Then there’s the iOS port of Portal Knights, which I had ZERO idea was a thing in the works. The forever in development card battler VEmpire finally dropped, as did the forever in soft launch Amazing Katamari Damacy. Quite a week, I tell you! So check out all the new games in the list below and let us know which ones you’re interested in picking up.
Amazing Katamari Damacy
Roll your Katamari into a ball of galactic proportions in this cosmic endless runner. Help the Prince in this amazing adventure, collect thousands of objects, and team up with your royal cousins on a mission to restore the galaxy. Rush through lovely levels and help the King of All Cosmos to win back the Queen’s heart. Oh, and save the universe from impending doom!
Ashworld is an open world survival adventure set in a post apocalyptic world a few hundred years from now. Water and food are valuable, rare and the most important things you’ll have to find, as you try to survive in the rage-lands. An area of the world terrorized by the Ragers. A stereotypical group of road-warriors with no respect for the little life that’s left.
During the night creatures, called the Skellies, roam the world and are becoming more dangerous as time passes.
Use your smarts, combined with the various weapons, cars, gadgets and raw materials that can be found inside the many underground area’s, buildings, old sky-scrapers, and other area’s of the Ashworld.

Dual Match 3
Dual Match 3 is a match 3 puzzle game in which players try to get a high score by connecting 3 or more balls of the same color and number.
When 3 or more balls of the same color and number are connected, the points on the balls are multiplied by 10.
Players can boost their score by connecting multiple combos, in which case the combo points are multiplied by the number of combos hit so far (e.g. on the third combo, the points are multiplied by 3).
The player can connect balls freely: vertically, horizontally, or diagonally.
Although the rules are simple—just connect 3 or more balls of the same color and number—Dual Match 3 is unique in that scores vary greatly depending on the connection path.
