Things are starting to really pick up in 2016 with this week’s list of new iOS game releases. At long, long last FDG’s Mega Man-inspired platformer Venture Kid has finally launched, and it’s fantastic. Then there’s Punch Club which launched on Steam earlier this week, and is a crazy mishmash of Kairosoft-style simulation, boxing, and pop culture parodies. Then there’s Tower of Fortune 3, the latest entry in the popular slot machine roguelike series, and it looks like the best one yet. And of course everyone seems to be playing Pocket Mortys, which we’ve already reviewed and enjoyed a bunch. And that’s only the beginning as there’s a TON of other stuff this week too. Let us know what games you plan on picking up this week in the comments below!

– Mining and crafting simulations, combined with unique and challenging battle system.
