Today Apple released the new App Store for Mac. Despite lots of negative response and some early issues, it seems this way of buying and downloading software for your Mac is here to stay.

I won’t go into how long it took to install on my MacBook, how it already screwed up at least one of my purchased applications (Panic’s Candybar) and how the App Store seems to take hold of your life. Instead: here’s a list of the coolest games the new App Store brings.

1 Angry Birds for Mac

Price: $4.99

Let’s just start with the obvious winner. Angry Birds has been the single biggest game for smartphones and tablets in 2010 and now tries continuing the legend in 2011 for the bigger screens.

4 Chopper 2

Price: 80% off during App Store launch sale (discounted price $0.99)

This one’s pretty cool. The game itself is pretty basic, but it can be remote-controlled with your iPad or iPhone. Currently there’s an App Store launch sale, which means it’s only $0.79 for a limited time only.
