New iPad Games and Apps of the Week

Zombie Deathmatch

Apple CEO Tim Cook announced this week that the fourth-generation Apple TV will be available for pre-order on Monday, October 26, and that it will begin shipping at the end of the month. Apple also opened app submissions for tvOS. This means developers can start submitting third-party apps and games for the new Apple TV.

Apple released iOS 9.1 on Wednesday. The update added over 150 emojis to the stock keyboard, but more importantly it seems to have fixed the annoying Game Center issue that I mentioned a few weeks ago. The Game Center login screen now appears when you start an app and not halfway through your game.

There were a few universal zombie related games released in time for Halloween. Here are a three that caught my attention:

- Zombie Deathmatch (Free) Create your Zombie fighting team with an array of bone-crushing weapons and take on the undead in gruesome pit fighting leagues.
- zombie match defense ($1.99) Match 3 / lane defense
- Baseball Apocalypse ($1.99) You are a professional baseball robot programmed to annihilate anything in your obligatory path for justice.

Here are this week's noteworthy App Store releases for the iPad through 10/18/15 to 10/24/15. Don't forget to check out our App Store recap every Saturday for all the weekly releases, jailbreak tweaks, App Store news and important app updates.

Shadowgate ($4.99)

Shadowgate

"Shadowgate is one of the most well-known and beloved point-and-click adventure titles in gaming history. As one of the original titles in the popular MacVenture series that went on to be celebrated on the NES, GBC, and Nintendo 64, Shadowgate quickly endeared players with its fantastic atmospheric soundtrack, perilous locations to progress through, countless puzzles to solve, and more ways to gruesomely die than gamers previously thought possible. Thrust into the role of "The Seed of Prophecy," players travel deep into the living castle, in hopes of defeating the evil that dwells within – the dreaded Warlock Lord."

"Now, nearly 30 years after the original version haunted Mac and NES gamers, the original development team behind that timeless classic is back with a full re-imagining of the original Shadowgate. Much more than a port, the team at Zojoi has painstakingly redesigned the game from the ground up, adding in tons of new mind-bending puzzles, lots of new rooms with stunning hand-painted 2D graphical detail, and more objects to interact with and help you along your quest."

"Decide how YOU want to play this new, re-imagined Shadowgate! Want the modern adventure experience? Use the wheel-based icon command system. Want the retro experience? Employ the Classic command system and turn on the retro graphics, soundtrack, text box, and room transitions. Want a more cinematic experience? Switch to Immersive mode by auto-hiding the UI and using customizable hotkeys to explore the castle. Or mix and match the options to satisfy your play style. In Shadowgate, there are plenty of new features and fun throwbacks to the original version to satisfy veteran adventurers and newcomers alike!"
