Thursday is always expected to be a busier day on the App Store each week, as several developers release new apps for iPhone and iPad. But when I awoke this morning, I was pretty shell-shocked to realize just how many new high-quality games are now available. While I would normally resort to throwing most of these new titles into App Recap, our daily app roundup, the sheer number of awesome new games merits a separate post this afternoon.

Aerena: Clash of Champions, Supernauts and Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake are among the new games in this massive App Store refresh, which is something that usually only happens around the holidays. We’ve provided game trailers for some of the exciting new games ahead, and we’ll be highlighting even more of the releases in App Recap later tonight.

    Interesting list, Sad that there are a lot of fun games, but very hard to search on app Store. People are choosing just from top paid/free Apps, the rest are just lost.:( I am playing The Foundry with 100 balls, that I found on a suggestion site. It’s very fun
