Each week, we highlight a selection of the most interesting, exciting, and unique new iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch titles released on the App Store. Gameloft's dramatically enhanced racer Asphalt 8: Airborne leads the week's offerings, along with great endless runner RunBot, plus intriguing freebies like Smash Bandits, The Impossible Line, and Dream House Days stand out amidst the rest of the new releases.
RunBot (out this Thursday) is a game about urgency and immediacy that tests how well you can multitask under pressure. Playing as a fugitive robot running away from his creators, you must dodge obstacles, lasers, and enemy drones, all while picking up batteries to ensure you don’t run out of power. It’s an endless runner that rewards you the more you play, and its easy controls and fast-paced gameplay luckily make it difficult to put down.
