Universal:

Anomaly 2 by Chillingo Ltd ($4.99, 1.1 GB): Take a final stand against the alien machines in this bigger and badder sequel to the highly acclaimed combination tower defense and real-time strategy game. The invaders have returned at full strength, but tougher opponents means tougher tools. Your unit, the Yukon convoy, has been granted access to state of the art weaponry. For example, the Assault Hound, an accelerating cannon equipped armored personnel carrier that can transform into a flame throwing mech, then referred to as the Hell Hound, and back again. Unfortunately, these advancements only level the playing field, one far larger and more treacherous than ever before. As before, plan your missions wisely using the tactical map before commanding your squad in battle, assisting soldiers by activating special abilities when needed. The game features 2-D and 3-D graphics, movie-like cutscenes and commentary, dramatic soundtrack, dynamic story mode campaign with multiple conclusions as well as one-on-one online multiplayer, achievement medals reward system, plus Game Center and Facebook integration.

Blur Overdrive by Marmalade Play (Free, 155.6 MB): This Death Rally-like variation of the vibrant combat-style racer offers the bumper bashing, engine exploding, and fender smashing fun on-the-go. In addition to taking tight turns and spinning out opposing racers, your trek around the track will also involve collecting power-ups to launch target locked missiles, deploying spikes and shields, utilizing repair kits, plus more. The game features neon-bursting 3-D graphics, techno soundtrack, seven courses, multiple battle race types and test driving "Showcase" events, four levels of difficulty, car upgrades and customization, three dual-thumb control schemes, as well as Game Center leaderboards and achievements.
