This Week’s Hot New Games in the App Store! Boodmasque, Riptide GP 2, Prince of Persia, and More
Don’t you just love those weeks when the App Store unexpectedly gets hit by a barrage of great new games? We live for those weeks around here, and luckily this is one of them. We’ve got a photo-importing/vampire-fighting game from Square Enix, another in the Riptide franchise, and some casual options, too… Read on for trailers and more.
This one from Square Enix is tough to explain, so before I even try, I’m going to recommend watching the trailer… Bloodmasque looks like a pretty innovative mix of fun photo-importing and editing, along with RPG and action elements. It uses your own face to create the main character, so it is like you are starring in your own video game. It’s also all about vampires, which is a nice diversion from the worn-out zombie thing. Read our full review.
Riptide GP 2
It’s wave racing from the future, part 2… This sequel packs in more of the big waves and air that satisfied gamers the first time around, and it can be yours for $2.99.
Prince of Persia: The Shadow and the Flame
Ubisoft’s remake of the classic action-platformer is looking especially polished in the Shadow and the Flame. The game is set after Prince of Persia Classic, and in it you’ll play as the Prince, who is “on an epic journey in search of his past that will redefine his future.”
We don’t see a lot of side-scrolling racers in the App Store, and SPACEHOPPER STUDIOS is looking to fill that void with Delta-V Racing. Along with a new twist on iOS racing, the game brings combat elements that should add a lot to the experience.
It’s cute, it’s casual, and it’s only a dollar… Sky Tourist has you playing as a space man named Petey Pendant who’s out to visit settlements and nab souvenirs. It unfolds as a puzzle/platformer and looks like it’ll be quick to pick up and play.

Vampires make their way into the App Store a second time this week in Lums, a game from Hyperbolic Magnetism that is heavy on visual flair. Once vampires get into the world of Lums, “the only way to stop them is to destroy their hideouts in the shadows and expose them to the light.”
