Five Nights at Freddy's World

Five Nights at Freddy's developer Scott Cawthon shocked fans this week by releasing a trailer to Five Nights at Freddy's World. Instead of following the normal creepy point-and-click format as the original four games, Freddy's World is a cute and colorful RPG with a Final Fantasy-like battle system. Cawthon did say in September that he wanted to use the Five Nights at Freddy's characters "in a new and fun way" and create a type of game that he hadn't created in a long time.

New iOS Apps, Games and JB Tweaks of the Week: Zombies, zombies and more zombies

Baseball Apocalypse

It was a big week for zombies on the App Store with two highly anticipated post-apocalyptic titles releasing on Thursday. Zombie Deathmatch is a zombie fighting game where your goal is to build your own roster of zombie fighters. The game features three classes of zombies (Brutes, Maulers, Stalkers) and various fighters you can recruit and train. You can also unlock and buy new weapons, armour and fight your way through four Fighting Leagues with boss battles. Zombie Deathmatch is available for free on the App Store. It does include IAPS.

Baseball Apocalypse reminds me of the awesome free flash game Zombie Baseball, but instead of playing as a human with a baseball bat, you're a professional baseball robot. The goal of the game is to smash zombies and other post-apocalyptic beasts with your baseball bat and five baseballs. Baseball Apocalypse is available for $1.99 on the App Store.
