    Ant Raid for iPhone

    Not everyone has an iPad, so many haven’t had the chance to play Ant Raid, a quirky, creative real-time strategy game starring a colony of ants. While the iPad version came out last year, we gave it a well-deserved Must Have rating in our review. So if you haven’t played it yet and you’re looking for a great, challenging strategy game on your iPhone, pick this one up tonight.

    Price: $0.99 US

    Baseball Superstars 2012

    This is the latest installment of Gamevil’s Baseball Superstars franchise, and if it’s anything like the games released in years past, we’re in for a real treat. The depth and breadth of this series is stunning, featuring a fantastical baseball sim, insanely deep micromanagement options, and an outfield’s worth of game modes. We’ll post a full review as soon as we can, but judging by Gamevil’s track record, this one will be worth your while.

    One Epic Game

    Tonight Chillingo brings us One Epic Game, a port of a PSP Mini that puts you in the shoes of a hero tasked with saving the world from the double-whammy of an alien invasion and a zombie outbreak in a post-apocalyptic world. The game is an auto-runner, so your legs will keep moving as you navigate treacherous terrain and blow apart as many bad guys as you can.

    Paper Monsters

    Paper Monsters is a great-looking platformer from Crescent Moon and Robots vs Wizards that puts you in a papery world and has you do the usual things like snag power-ups, jump over pits, and take out baddies. The style, music, and level variety evident in the trailer– to say nothing of the Crescent Moon’s stellar track record– put this one on our radar.
