Welcome back to Pocket Gamer's round-up of the new mid-week iPhone and iPad releases.

As you probably already know, we bring you this round-up because we're too busy to bring you a story for every new game out.

Rob and Rich are both - once again - editing your future reading material, Mark, Mike, and Keith are all hard at work on other articles, Will is now a celebrity radio star, and I'm here with you.

Thankfully, the batch of new releases this Wednesday is a lot better than the past couple of round-ups, and includes titles from Firemint, PopCap, EA, and Chillingo.

These titles have all hit the New Zealand App Store, meaning you can grab them in the UK and US from around midnight.

Have fun.
