As you all probably know by now, we produce this article because we're simply too busy to bring you a story on every single new mid-week release.

These games have recently hit the New Zealand App Store, meaning they should be available to download in the UK and US from around midnight this evening.

Polarbit's follow-up to the Pocket Gamer Silver Award-winning Reckless Racing has finally sped onto Apple's App Store, complete with 18 "highly detailed" cars, and 24 different tracks.

Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective

Awakening as a spirit following your murder, you're tasked with searching for the answers to three questions: "who am I?", "who killed me?", and “why was I killed?".

You do this by possessing and manipulating objects, such as guitars and umbrellas. Oh, and you turn time back by four whole minutes, which allows you to alter the fate of the people around you.

The first two chapters of this story can be played for free, but you'll have to splash some cash on in-app purchases if you want to progress any further.

Awesome Land

Unfortunately, your favourite motorcycle has been cruelly stolen by a bunch of unforgiving aliens, which means you have to kick their colourful arses and get it back.

If that wasn't bad enough, you have to traipse through a "twisted version of the Nevada Desert" to do it, and face off against "beastly" bosses.
