These Hot New games in the App Store all want your vote: NBA 2K13, Payback 2, Snail Bob, and more!
If last night’s presidential debate didn’t hold your attention, then better load up the hottest new iPhone/iPad games in time for the next one. What else are you going to do while 40 million people pretend to understand politics? How about something intelligent like Snail Bob, NBA 2K13, or Kingdom Royale? All those are available this week, along with a few other fresh releases… Check out the trailers and details below.
NBA 2K13 Universal
(3.5 stars with 4618 Ratings)
You never know what you’re going to get with an iOS sports sim, especially when it comes from anyone other than EA Sports… But 2K Sports is apparently pretty confident in NBA 2K13 given the $7.99 price tag. Try it out if your NBA fan blood runs deep enough.
Payback² Pro – The Battle Sandbox Universal
(4 stars with 23 Ratings)
The whole open-world crime thing has definitely been done in the App Store, so this sequel isn’t quite as revolutionary as it was back when the original Payback dropped pre-GTA. This one is available on your iPhone for $3.99, or you can pick up the universal version for $5.99.

Kingdom Royale Universal
(4.5 stars with 1073 Ratings)
The latest in social battling games comes to us from Gamevil. The fantasy art style around these kingdoms definitely looks cool, so it might warrant the free download. Of course, we can’t make any promises about how hard the in-app purchases will get pushed upon you.
Snail Bob Universal
(4.5 stars with 5780 Ratings)
Another week and another game from Chillingo… Who can keep up with the number of puzzlers they put out?! Maybe you can, and if so, you can get Snail Bob for just 99 cents.
Tentacles: Enter the Dolphin
Tentacles: Enter the Dolphin Universal
(4.5 stars with 1505 Ratings)
There is a lot we don’t know about Tentacles at this point, but perhaps it’s most mysterious trait is the fact that it comes to the App Store from a little developer called MICROSOFT. It can be had for 99 cents, and promises gamers they can “rip out eyes for points & pleasure!”
