Hot New Games of the Week! The Amazing Spider-Man, Platoonz, Chasing Yellow, and More
It’s blazing hot all over the U.S. right now, and looking at this week’s new releases, we see that the App Store is keeping up with the theme. We’ve picked six titles we think deserve your attention, so check out the trailers and details below!
The Amazing Spider Man
The Amazing Spider-Man Universal
(4.5 stars with 16656 Ratings)
Wouldn’t it be awesome if Gameloft hit this one out of the park? Previous installments have been impressive, but this companion to the 2012 blockbuster will hopefully offer the best web-slinging yet at $6.99.
Chasing Yello Universal
(4.5 stars with 7376 Ratings)
So you’re a goldfish, and there’s a 7-year-old girl named Mathilda chasing you with a net. And it’s endless. You’ve got to avoid all kinds of obstacles as you zoom through a treacherous river. It’s 99 cents and supposedly pretty charming.

Chillingo, will you never stop? Command a platoon of four soldiers who are out to do some alien warfare and defend the earth. The game boasts a “huge” campaign and sells for 99 cents.
Frisbee Forever 2
Frisbee® Forever 2 Universal
(4 stars with 2901 Ratings)
Welcome back. The sequel to Frisbee Forever is free and will get you 75 new tracks divided amongst three worlds. Kiloo Games could hardly mess this up unless they tinkered with the simple gameplay we loved in the original.
Cthulu Saves the World
Cthulhu Saves the World Universal
(4 stars with 262 Ratings)
Here’s a description you don’t hear everyday: “Save the world to destroy it in an epic parody RPG journey of redemption, romance, and insanity!” If that doesn’t sell you on this $1.99 title from TinkerHouse Games, nothing will.
Squids Wild West
Squids Wild West Universal
(5 stars with 684 Ratings)
I’ll be honest, I hadn’t heard of the SQUIDS franchise up to now, but developer The Game Bakers says the Wild West is a great place to start. The RPG features “stretchy heroes” who are out to explore the underwater Wild West and fight against the Black Ooze—all while searching for their fallen comrade named Winnick.
