Five Nights at Freddy's 2: $2.99 for the iPod touch, iPhone and iPad (Requires iOS 5.1 or later) Rated 12+

I've written so much about Freddy Fazbear I'm running out of things to say, however I want to note that even though Five Nights at Freddy's 2 is an amazing game, it may not be for everyone. If you're looking for non-stop action Freddy Fazbear's Pizza is not the place for you. In Five Nights at Freddy's there isn't a lot to do except watch security cameras and sometimes crap your pants. The game is an intense but fun click-and-point horror survival game, if that's not your thing, you may want to skip it and save yourself $3. For everyone else this game is highly recommended. Here's the official App Store description:

Welcome back to the new and improved Freddy Fazbear's Pizza!

In Five Nights at Freddy's 2, the old and aging animatronics are joined by a new cast of characters. They are kid-friendly, updated with the latest in facial recognition technology, tied into local criminal databases, and promise to put on a safe and entertaining show for kids and grown-ups alike!

What could go wrong?

As the new security guard working nights, your job is to monitor cameras and make sure nothing goes wrong after-hours. The previous guard has complained about the characters trying to get into the office (he has since been moved to day-shift). So to make your job easier, you've been provided with your very own empty Freddy Fazbear head, which should fool the animatronic characters into leaving you alone if they should accidentally enter your office.

As always, Fazbear Entertainment is not responsible for death or dismemberment.

Kingdom Rush Origins: $2.99 (Standard) $4.99 (HD) (Requires iOS 5.0 or later) Rated 9+ (Universal)

Ironhide Games Studio knows how to keep a series going. The sequel, Kingdom Rush Frontiers, to their hit tower defense title Kingdom Rush never deviated from source material while delivering more of what the fans loved about the original. Origins, the prequel to both games, is just more of the same, but that's a good thing! The game features all new towers, magic spells, enemies and heroes like you would hope it would, but it is packed with way more Easter eggs, achievements and interactive scenery than the first two games combined. Simply put, Kingdom Rush Origins is the biggest and baddest game in the series and I can't wait to see what Ironhide has planned next. This game is highly recommended to anyone who enjoys the tower defense genre.

I have no idea what this is, but the trailer is too good not to post. I'm pretty sure this game is the reason the iPhone and iPad were invented!
