New iPad Games and Apps of the Week: Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers and more

Wii U Dark Edition Starter Pack

There was some exclusive Skylanders Superchargers news announced by Toys R Us this week. The Nintendo Supercharger/amiibo hybrid Donkey Kong and Bowser Dark Edition figures will only be available for the Wii and Wii U. This may be important information if you were considering buying an iPad Starter Pack, because you will need to purchase the Wii or Wii U Dark Edition Starter Pack if you want the limited edition Bowser.

Five Nights at Freddy's 4 was launched for Windows through Steam on Thursday. Hopefully the iOS release will be available in a few days.

Here are this week's noteworthy iPad releases for 07/19/15 to 07/25/15. SpongeBob Moves In is Apple's free app of the week. The game will be free on the Apple App Store until 07/30/15. Don't forget to check out our App Store recap every Saturday for all the weekly releases, jailbreak tweaks, App Store news and important app updates.
