Hot New games in the App Store! Marvel Vs. Capcom 2, Ski Safari, Spellsword, and more
The App Store has got it all this week, from a classic arcade fighter to a brand-new endless runner. For just a few bucks, you can throw a few of these titles on your iOS device and be loaded for weeks to come… Many of these news games became available in the U.S. around 11 p.m. on Wednesday, so if you act now you can still be the first person you know to get your hands on one of them!
Marvel Vs. Capcom 2
MARVEL VS. CAPCOM 2 Universal (Optimized for Both the iPad and iPhone)
(3.5 stars with 2317 Ratings)
You know what to expect here—a port of a time-tested fighter that is beloved by many arcade and console fans. The game is available as a universal app on iOS devices for $2.99 during a promotion linked to The Avengers movie, after which it’ll jump up to $4.99.
Ski Safari Universal (Optimized for Both the iPad and iPhone)
(5 stars with 41440 Ratings)
This one would have made more sense launching in the winter, but oh well… Ski Safari lets you play as Sven, an unlucky mountain dweller who finds himself barreling down a mountain when an avalanche occurs. The game is only a buck and looks to offer lots of variety through obstacles and perks found in the icy landscape.
Spell Sword Universal (Optimized for Both the iPad and iPhone)
(4.5 stars with 4237 Ratings)
If you haven’t had enough hack ‘n slash in your life lately, this game from Everplay and FireFruitForge is our pick for the week. It’s priced at 99 cents and offers 60 missions, all presented in a cool retro style.
Escape from Age of Monsters HD
Escape from Age of Monsters iPhone OS
(4.5 stars with 331 Ratings)
Continuing this week’s $1 theme, Escape from Age of Monsters is an awkwardly-titled endless runner that has you rushing through hand-drawn environments as you try to save mankind. This one is heavy on the art, and looks to be worth well over $1 on looks alone…
Escape from Age of Monsters HD iPad Only

The Dictator: Wadiyan Games
The Dictator: Wadiyan Games Universal (Optimized for Both the iPad and iPhone)
(4 stars with 762 Ratings)
In case you haven’t heard, Sasha Baren Cohen has a new movie coming out, and yes, this is related. Expect brash, offensive—and probably very humorous–content as you cheat your way through the olympic games.
