It can be difficult to pick out the cream of the crop amidst the barrage of new iPhone and iPad games, but we’ve got you covered with our weekly look at the most notable new releases.

Let's kick off this Memorial Day weekend right with some serious price cuts to some serious games. There's a ton out there and there's going to be more, we can feel it. Almost like a disturbance in the Force…
Tower defense games can be seen far and wide on the App Store, so for a new entry in the genre to stand out, it has to be something special. Castle Doombad lets you play as the bad guy for a change — Dr. Lord Evilstein — and requires you to lay down traps all over your fortress to keep heroes at bay.

Following the holiday break and a very quiet first week of the new year — which brought us just a handful of releases, like Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed and Lyne — we’re back with our first weekly roundup of 2014. Luckily, there’s a much larger and more interesting slate of new releases out today, including the tank-blasting Battle Supremacy (from the makers of Sky Gamblers), Adult Swim’s Castle Doombad, and Joe Danger Infinity.
