Big Game Night: Block Fortress: War, Mines of Mars, and More

It’s Big Game Night on the App Store, which means lots of developers are putting their best new games out at 11 p.m. Eastern time. We’ve looked through the new releases and picked the best of the best below. So click ahead for a peek at what’s coming, and plan your purchases now.

Walking Dead: Season 2 – Episode 2

If you’ve been playing the Walking Dead games (and you totally should), then you’re probably champing at the bit to get your hands on the newest installment. This game follows young Clementine as she struggles to survive in a world full of zombies and struggling humans. Unfortunately, since the new episode will be available as an in-app purchase in the original game, we might have to wait until morning to play it.

Price: $4.99 IAP (or $14.99 for all episodes)

Frontline Commando 2

You don’t have to wait for tonight to play this one—it’s available right now in the App Store. This slick free-to-play war game from Glu has you assemble a team of mercenaries and lead them through 40 campaign missions. Or, if you’re feeling competitive, you can play online against real opponents. Just hope they haven’t blown their savings on the big guns.

Mines of Mars

In this side-scrolling action/mining game, you explore Mars and wind up finding a few more hostile aliens than you had expected. The underground world is procedurally generated, and you’ll find weapons galore to aid you on your adventure. Looks like fun.

Devious Dungeon

Ravenous Games has made more action platformers than we can easily tally up, including League of Evil and Random Heroes. But there’s a reason they’re still in business: They’re good at it. Devious Dungeon is their latest, and it’s a medieval slice-‘em-up where you gain levels and earn money to upgrade your gear.

Price: $0.99

Block Fortress: War

In this new installment in the Block Fortress-verse, you choose one of five armies, build a sturdy defensive position, and duke it out against the computer or an opponent online. If it’s up to the standard set by the original title, it’ll be well worth getting.
