It's official: there are too many iOS games. It's harder than ever to spot the great ones among all the junk, so we've done the hard work for you and collected the classics for this list. Every game here is playable on both iPad and iPhone (plus iPod touch, naturally), although some are split into device-specific versions. Read on and enjoy!
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. Adorable puzzle adventure Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake and online battler World of Tanks: Blitz lead the highlights this week, although there are other intriguing options. Give these a good look and then check back next week for more.
We’ve got a couple of pretty significant releases leading the week: Supercell’s Boom Beach, which follows the wildly popular Clash of Clans, along with Star Wars: Assault Team, a card-based battler based on A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back. We’ve got several other new releases profiled in the pack, of course, and if you’re a fan of Plants vs. Zombies 2, don’t forget to update to grab the new Far Future update with loads of fresh free content. Be sure to keep an eye out for full reviews of some of these titles in the coming days, and then check back next Thursday for an all-new list of notable games to consider.
If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then PopCap must feel downright exalted upon spotting this new casual tower-defense affair.

Yeah, she's a beauty, but that price tag sure gives us pause. Google introduced its latest attempt to deflate the MacBook Air on Thursday, and the Chromebook Pixel is now on sale for anyone with $1299 burning a hole in their pocket.

Well, Halloween is over. A bummer for sure, but now is that glorious time of year when parents can sit around eating all their kids' leftover candy. PopCap and the American Dental Association had a novel idea this year: how about giving kids a hit video game instead of delicious -- tooth rotting -- candy?
It's the weekend before Halloween, ghouls and zomboys, which means that the scariest of apps and hot games are seeing their prices beheaded. We're talking machetes and axes are cutting down dollar signs, hacking away at the cost until there's just monster deals lying dismembered on the ground for you to scoop up and make your own. So what are you waiting for? An invitation?
Seems like everyone has some big game or app news today, so with today being a rather slow news day anyway, today’s recap is all about apps and games -- but we couldn’t help but slip one app-related news story into the mix that should make Instagram fans chuckle. Can you spot it among the rest of the day’s news for Thursday, April 19, 2012?
