Here are more details on the five new games.


Publisher: Chucklefish Games


In this dark, story-driven platformer, you'll explore every corner of an abandoned castle. You'll fight enemies and a much greater evil. Inmost intertwines the journey of a knight fighting the forces of darkness, a lonely girl and a creature that feeds on sadness. All three characters are playable, according to Apple .  


Publisher: Stainless Games


Fans of fast-paced, action racing games might groove on ShockRods. Whether you play with friends or solo, the goal is to win at any cost and cause maximum destruction. ShockRods has modes you'd expect to find on a shooter, like Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch and Capture the Flag. Shockball and Golden Ram are its more traditional race modes. 


Publisher: Skybox Labs


Stela is about a woman witnessing a mysterious, ancient world come to an end and learning to survive. Players will navigate treacherous terrain, outsmart dangerous beasts through puzzles, and explore haunted towns and creepy forests in this adventure. 

Mind Symphony 

Publisher: Rogue Games


Mind Symphony sets its gameplay to music for an out-of-the-ordinary gaming experience. The game is designed to impact you emotionally and mentally, with the goal of actually making them feel better. If you play in Release Mode, enemy attacks are made in time with the soundtrack. You can also play in Calm Mode for a more soothing experience, which focuses more on the melody by matching the timing of the major melodic point, according to Apple.


Publisher: Efecto+Rocket


The better you construct your robot in Decoherence, the more you stand a chance of winning. You build your bot with specific tactics to strengthen your winning strategy. Fight with your bot in multiplayer or play solo matches in the Entropy Tribunals. Think on your feet and be ready for anything.
