The iPad gaming update is GamerTell’s weekly look at the previous week’s iPad games released in the Apple App Store. We cover them all – good and not so good. The list is available every Monday, right as you are about to start that long work week.

Nothing new on those iPad mini rumors and perhaps it’s for the best. As we get into August, maybe we will hear more but until then here’s this week’s rather excellent list of gaming apps:

MANOS – The Hands of Fate is a retro style adventure game for $1.99, that puts you in the shoes of Mike, a man who on during his family vacation has mysteriously lost his family to the creepy and mysterious Master. Now it’s up to Mike and his trusty revolver to save his family and escape the haunted Valley Lodge.

Walking Dead: The Game finally arrives on iOS. Follow the story of Lee Everett as he makes his way through the zombie infested world looking for redemption of his previous life in protecting Clementine. Unlike other adventure games, the decisions you make in this world effect the outcome of the story. This is episode 1 of 5 (other episodes can be pre-ordered) available for $4.99.

Spy vs Spy gets reborn on the iOS platform for $0.99, packing both retro and retina graphics. Play against the computer or other opponents in local or online multiplayer in 24 levels of challenges and difficulty. Escape using your best skills and climb to the top of the leaderboards of the Game Center.

Blazing Star shoots it’s way from the NEOGEO to the iOS. For $2.99, SHUMP fans get a perfect port of the Arcade mode, a new Mission mode and Bluetooth mult-iplayer mode. Use one of six ships to unlock achievements and shoot your way to the top of Game Center leaderboards.

Epic Raiders is this week’s free to play game. Customize your characters to take on the expansive dungeons. Team up with other players and take on foes in realtime combat.
