Despite being January, the month when everything gaming-related seems to freeze (and it’s totally understandable, judging from the weather outside), we have a few really solid titles launched this week, like Archangl, RoboCop or the remake of Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project. Add to that a new Joe Danger game and some other zany titles and you might just have enough to keep you busy for the week. So let’s check out below the newest and best iOS games released this week!
Announced just yesterday, Archangel is clearly the most ambitious game on this list. The forces of evil are mobilizing in defiance of heavenly rule. As an Archangel your task is not merely to halt their rise – you must inflict a justice so brutal and uncompromising that none will ever again defy the will of Heaven. A really promising game!

Join the OmniCorp program to become RoboCop, the ultimate law enforcement officer! Battle human crooks, robot enemies and learn how to defend the citizens from the corrupt streets of Detroit. The game is free to play and will certainly drive us crazy with the IAPs at some point, but this still makes it a must try since… well… it’s RoboCop!

Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project
And because you have to play RoboCop because it’s RoboCop, the same applies for Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project even though the franchise unfortunately ended as one of the biggest jokes ever (with Duke Nukem Forever being delayed by over a decade). Originally released to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Duke Nukem in 2002, Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project blends together the best elements of Duke Nukem 3D and the best 2D sidescrolling of the first two games in the series, Duke Nukem and Duke Nukem II.
Defy death with dozens of new vehicles! There’s motorbikes, cars, airplanes… even a tank and a runaway firework! Fight remote control helicopters, dodge snooker balls and use a block of cheese to ramp over bowls of soup! Overall, a really fun game that will surely become an instant hit!
Unleash the full power of your iOS device in Battle Supremacy, a WWII tank game with thrilling gameplay and showoff-worthy visuals. Explore a fully-interactive open world never before seen on mobile devices, and do it by land, air or sea. The gameplay is so immersive and engaging that destroying a target can feel like winning the battle, but really it’s just the beginning…
A 2D Dungeon Keeper-like game released for iOS, Castle Doombad strangely does not make me want to play it, but I am sure everybody else will love this game, so here it is on our list. In this reverse spin on tower defense it’s your job to defend your home turf from heroes trying to save the day. View your domain from a side-view perspective, placing traps and unleash minions on your unwitting foes to protect your evil fortress.
The smart bombs have escaped and they’re taking over Kablooey Labs! It’s your job as the most expendib– er, BRAVEST employee to take out the bombs and take back the company! In other words, a fun and funny game that does enough in terms of proving to be challenging and addictive. Must try!
