Each and every day new mobile games are hitting the App Store, and so each week we put together a big old list of all the best new releases of the past seven days. Back in the day the App Store would showcase the same games for a week, and then refresh those features each Thursday. Because of that developers got into the habit of releasing their games throughout Wednesday or very early Thursday in order to hopefully get one of those coveted features spots. Nowadays the App Store refreshes constantly, so the need for everyone to release all on the same day has diminished. Still, we’ve kept our weekly Wednesday night format as for years that’s the time people knew to check TouchArcade for the list of new games. And so without further ado please check out the full list of this week’s new games below, and let us know in the comments section which games you’ll be picking up!

Between Portals ($2.99)
Between Portals is an exploration through the intricacies of the universe. Go on a mission to increase humanity’s understanding of foreign star systems and discover new stars. As new star systems can be tricky to navigate, you need to alter the flight path of the space capsule to spend as much time exploring as possible. Portals in each star system have a strong gravitational pull, forcing the capsule to take the shortest route on its own.

Despot’s Game (Free)
Let’s play a game: I’ll give you some puny humans, and you try to help them make it through my labyrinth. No, you won’t be controlling them in battles – they’ll fight automatically! My game is about strategy and praying to RNGesus, not mashing buttons. You can buy items for the humans: swords, crossbows, coffins, stale pretzels. Plus, I’ll let you give them cool mutations! A few Topochlorians in the blood and some Crocodile Skin never hurt anyone. There’s one catch, though: if you die, you have to start over entirely, and the whole world will be generated again from scratch. Yes, my game is a roguelike game. Well, roguelite, if you’re a nerd who loves compartmentalizing us creators into strict genres.
