We've covered Apple TV games here and there over the years as it's pretty closely related to iOS gaming, but I think it's safe to say that none of us at TouchArcade have been terribly impressed with gaming on Apple's set-top box. When Apple finally (finally!) unveiled an Apple TV that supported a full App

Minimalist Skiing Game 'Just Ski' Gets Great New Tutorial, (Slightly) Easier Difficulty, and iPhone X Support

Indie developer Jeff Weber brought a great take on skiing to the App Store earlier this year with Just Ski [$0.99]. The game was built off of similar mechanics to his previous release Krashlander, which used some pretty realistic physics and skiing techniques to have you solving puzzle-like levels. Just Ski's aim was to take

'Animus - Stand Alone' Review - The Dark Souls of Mobile

The Dark Souls series is an extremely popular game franchise that is infamous for its brutal difficulty, methodical combat, and merciless boss fights. I especially loved the series' "spin-off", Bloodborne on the Playstation 4. As usual, I enjoy discovering games on the App Store that are similar to some of my favorite games on console or PC. Luckily, Animus-

The 'Cuphead' Scam and TouchArcade: What Happened

It's rarely a good sign when you wake up to an entire lock screen full of Tweetbot notifications. That was the case this morning when we posted that Cuphead launched on the App Store. It seems until the actual Cuphead developer started telling people this was a fake, everyone just assumed it was the real

UPDATE: Do Not Download. The 'Cuphead' iOS Release is a Scam

Update: The iOS release of Cuphead that we posted about earlier this morning turned out to be the most sophisticated scam app we've seen yet. It's fully functional, which sets a new bar for the sort of scams we've come to see on the App Store. For more information, take a look at our updated

WWE Clash of Champions Live Stream Starts Soon, Hop in 'WWE Mayhem' to Play Along During the First Live Event

Ports, Ports and More Ports - The TouchArcade Show #334

TouchArcade Game of the Week: 'Gorogoa'

The idea behind the TouchArcade Game of the Week is that every Friday afternoon we post the one game that came out this week that we think is worth giving a special nod to. Now, before anyone goes over-thinking this, it doesn't necessarily mean our Game of the Week pick is the highest scoring game

Cinematic Adventure 'Life is Strange' Has a New Lite Version to Try Before You Buy

Developer Dontnod's critically-acclaimed interactive narrative adventure Life is Strange [$2.99] made a semi-surprise appearance on the App Store on Wednesday. I say semi-surprise because the game's iOS version was outed by way of Apple's new pre-order system that was rolled out this past Monday, but prior to that, I don't think we had any idea

'Clash of Clans' Clan Games Coming Soon

Clash of Clans [Free] update is coming soon, and this one is adding a new feature called Clan Games. Supercell has been teasing the Clan Games over the last few days, but a recent blog post gave us a bit more info on what to expect, although Supercell is still leaving it up to players

The weeks leading up to the annual holiday iTunes Connect freeze are always pretty wild, but they've been snowballing over the years to being these unbelievable onslaughts of new high profile games being sprayed on to the App Store.

Classic Platformers 'Mos Speedrun' and 'Mos Speedrun 2' Updated for the iPhone X

When it comes to games that are never leaving my device, the Mos Speedrun games are most definitely on that list, and today I'm very pleased to see that both games are now updated for the iPhone X screen. The original Mos Speedrun [$0.99] launched in early 2011 and as its name implied it was

RPG Reload Glossary: Cloudy with a Chance of Angst, or JRPGs in the Late 1990s

Hello, gentle readers, and welcome to the RPG Reload, the regular feature where we always bring a party. To be specific, welcome to the RPG Reload Glossary, where we sift through the piles of historical debris and messy semantics to try to make some sense of it all. This time around, we're continuing our look

It's Time to Glove Up as Arcade Boxing Game 'Prizefighters' is Now Available

As promised yesterday, Koality Games has released their new arcade boxing game Prizefighters [Free] on the App Store. It arrived too late to make it into our weekly roundup of new iOS games, but given the sheer amount of huge games that arrived on mobile this week, I'm sure Prizefighters didn't mind having a little

I Can't Believe I'm About to Say This: 'Dead 2048' Is a Clever Spin on the 'Threes!' and '2048' Formula

Threes! [$2.99] hit the App Store in early 2014 and was met with universal critical acclaim. (We loved it in our review.) About a month later, Ketchapp released 2048 [Free] and the rest is history. 2048 massively surged in popularity because it was way easier than Threes! and, well, it was free. The unbelievable success

This has been a somewhat harrowing saga as we've followed along with Simogo as they've updated their entire mobile games library not once but TWICE in the past 6 months; first to be fully 64-bit compatible for the arrival of iOS 11 in September, and now to be fully supporting the entire screen of the
