It’s that time of year again, as this is the last release week before iTunes shuts down all of next week for the holidays. There’s a massive amount of new games tonight, and I’d guess there will be some stragglers tomorrow and Friday as well. It’s been a great year of gaming on iOS, and during the slow time next week you can look forward to what we thought was the cream of the crop. But for now, bask in the warm glow of a ton of new games to check out in the list below.
The acclaimed action adventure game is now available for iPhone and iPad! Are you ready to take control of a wind breaking, fire belching teenage Minotaur in a quest to rescue his princess from the clutches of the evil Minotaur king?
Fight your way through 5 uniquely themed islands with 110+ treacherous mazes to escape. Overcome mythical monsters such as the Cyclops, Hydras and Centaurs, Greek warriors and deadly traps such as crumbling floors, flame throwers, floor spikes and giant boulders. Featuring 5 unique end of level boss encounters against the legends of Greek mythology such as Medusa and Cerberus the hell hound!
Use Mino’s special Minotaur abilities such as “force of nature” to break wind and stun enemies! Or drink fire potions and turn your enemies to ash using “fire belch”, sneak past the Harpies using Invisibility or wear magic armour to protect yourself from deadly Ooze attacks!

Colorazy is a fun and addictive free puzzle game about colors and mazes.
Your goal is to connect two dots so that the route passed through all cells on the field. But it’s not so easy! You can move from one cell to another only if the colors of connected sides are equal. So, to make a route and to solve the puzzle, you need to properly rotate cells on the field.
Colorazy is the real joy for your eyes! Any level looks like mosaic or kaleidoscope, and you can customize color palettes in game settings.

Pinball Planet Pro
We’ve always loved to play pinball games but we noticed most modern pinball games are simulators for the hardcore and nostalgic pinball players. That’s why we aimed to create a pinball game for the new generation of gamers, who may not be familiar with the concept. We feel we’ve succeeded in our goal.
The game includes three completely different and unique pinball levels full of mysteries and secrets. A dynamic mission system unlocks new challenges and fun approaches to pinball gameplay. Pinball Planet features simple RPG elements such as a leveling system, power-ups, statistics, a simple in-game economy, challenges and complete freedom in gameplay progression.
It’s a game for everyone, gamers both old and new to pinball. It combines the best parts of old-school pinball games, but adds original and fun digital additions that are not possible in real-life pinball games. The game is easy to understand and play, it’s controls and interface are easy and intuitive to use. It’s the perfect game for short play sessions and stays challenging during long play sessions thanks to the fun mission system.

The very first game you’ll ever uncomplete. When you pick up this game, it has already been beaten. The big bad boss is defeated, the coins are collected and the princess has been rescued. Why, oh why?
Unraveling this mystery takes you through the entire game, from the last level to the first. You must uncollect the coins, revive the enemies and avoid nasty time paradoxes. In other words, you must uncomplete the game by playing it backwards.
