For reasons unknown to us, Thursday is the big game release day for iOS.

And for reasons related to the orbit of our home planet, we can get a sneak peek of what's incoming by looking at the New Zealand App Store on a Wednesday.

Each week, we pick out the impending games that deserve your attention in our 'Out at midnight' articles.

This week, those games are...

Devious Dungeon
Mines of Mars
Block Fortress War

But lest you accuse us of forgetting something, here's the complete list of (semi-)noteworthy games that will surface on the UK and US App Stores at midnight.
