Mid-week iOS releases: Evertales, Epoch, Gangstar Rio: City of Saints, and more

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

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.

This week, we welcome the arrival of some long-awaited titles, such as the latest entry in Gameloft's Gangstar series, action-packed combat game Epoch, and Crescent Moon Games's comical platformer Evertales.

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.

iPhone Blueprint 3D

Blueprint 3D is a unique puzzle game in which each level starts with a jumbled mess of dots of lines. Your aim is to rotate this mess in all directions and on all planes to uncover the picture underneath.

Each of the game's 240 levels includes an image from one of seven different categories: Hightech, Architecture, Medieval, Electronics, Space, Military, and Transport.
