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!

Three Minutes To Eight ($4.99)
Set in the near future, Three Minutes To Eight is a mind-bending pixel art adventure game that breaks the mold by introducing an intriguing twist: the protagonist is destined to meet their demise at precisely 07:57 PM. However, hope is not lost. It’s up to you to unravel what lies beneath, uncover secret paths, find ways to cheat death, and unlock multiple endings. Each run is distinct, with randomized elements and unique events, urging you to revisit the game multiple times to discover all its hidden mysteries. Find yourself in an ever-evolving gaming experience, mimicking a borderline state of mind that teeters on the edge of consciousness, where everything is possible yet remains elusive.

Trance Tank ($1.49)
Trance Tank is an Action-Shooter with Jump `N Run components and also equipped with cool Techno-Sounds. You will be able to control the tanks like no other game before. Experience classic shooting action in a unique landscape that takes you through an extraordinary graphic world. The tanks can jump and sometimes perform acrobatic movements such as somersaults etc. to avoid enemies or obstacles. The techno tracks playing in the background are supplemented by shooting enemies to play techno samples. This always creates a new type of piece of music. Points and fuel can also be collected to increase the high score or to unlock new tanks. Each vehicle has its own driving characteristics and some levels can only be mastered with certain tanks. You have to be a good shooter but at the same time you have to control your tank perfectly through the terrain.
