Top New Games Out This Week On Switch, PS4, Xbox One, And PC -- July 15-21

This week you can dig into cartoon action games like Sonic Mania Plus, Pool Panic, and Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion.

For the past few weeks, New Releases has claimed that July has games that aren't just remasters or re-releases. This week, it's finally proven true...with the exception of Sonic Mania Plus, but the blue blur's fan base probably won't complain about that one. Fans of cartoony games can also set sail with Adventure Time: Pirates of Enchiridion or smack billiard balls around in Pool Panic. For shooter fans, there's the first-person bullet hell of Mothergunship, and the arcade action of Tempest 4000.

Sonic Mania Plus -- July 17

Available on: PS4, Xbox One, PC, Switch

Everyone's favorite fast hedgehog is making another run this week. Sonic Mania Plus takes last year's smash hit and beefs it up with an all-new Encore mode and an improved Competition mode. Even better, you can try both of those out with two new playable characters: Mighty the Armadillo and Ray the Flying Squirrel.

This week, Cartoon Network fans can enjoy an original story set in the Adventure Time universe. The land of Ooo has flooded, and it's up to Finn, Jake, BMO, and Marceline to sail around and figure out what's happened. For the player, that means a big adventure full of turn-based combat, complete with special abilities and spells for your crew to unlock.

Mothergunship -- July 17

Available on: PS4, Xbox One, PC

Have you ever played a bullet hell game in first-person? That's the challenge behind Mothergunship. But it's not all about dodging; you can also outfit yourself with crazy customized guns. Considering the number of enemies and big bosses that await you in space, you're gonna need all the firepower you can get.

Tempest 4000 -- July 17

Available on: PS4, Xbox One, PC

No Caption Provided

Mothergunship isn't the only shooter firing off this week. Tempest 4000 is a modern take on the Atari arcade classic, with all the pulsing music and flashing neon lights you can handle. With 100 levels to blast through, there's plenty of space for you to zen out as you cruise through this tube shooter. And yes, it will be coming to the Atari VCS later this year too.

Pool Panic -- July 19

Available on: PC, Switch

No Caption Provided

As you can probably tell by the screenshot, Pool Panic is anything but a simple billiards game. In fact, the developers call it "the world's least realistic pool simulator." Each of the 100-plus levels has its own twist, like roaring grizzly bear balls or a gullible marching band, so you certainly won't be spending your time just sinking balls into corner pockets.
