The App Store has come a tremendously long way since its humble beginnings in 2008. It was the first time that Apple had officially introduced the distribution of third-party applications on its platform. It was an exciting time and many developers were taking their first steps in exploring the possibilities of gaming on iOS devices.
Loyal TouchArcade readers, I have a confession to make - I deleted Pokemon GO [Free] from my iPhone a few days ago to make room for the likes of Thimbleweed Park [$9.99] and Iron Marines [$4.99]. As the self-appointed resident Pokemon fanboy, I'm sorry for letting you all down. That being said, it looks like
Well it looks like we finally will have The Witness on iOS devices. After months of teases, leaks, and more, a new Tweet from Kenzie Paulus, who is a Producer and Team Manager at Thekla inc for The Witness, has given us a new release window. The Witness is coming to both iPhone (as confirmed
I've been patiently waiting for Minecraft's [$6.99] upcoming Better Together update to go live, and while we don't have a date yet, it seems like it's getting closer. The update, which will add a total of 34 new features to the game, has been in Android, Xbox One, and Windows 10 beta for some time
Apple announced a new feature to iOS 10 which was Replaykit Live. Which allows you to stream iOS games straight from your iPhone/iPad if the developer integrates Replaykit in their app. While iOS 11 is coming along and there's a nice hidden feature that even Apple themselves didn't show off; that's ReplayKit 2. Replaykit 2 allows for streaming
The Zombie Gunship series is a mobile classic, and today the series is heading into the AR future with Zombie Gunship Revenant [Free], a version of the game developed specifically for ARKit and iOS 11. The game's main concept is similar to previous iteration. You circle the battlefield below in heavily-armed helicopter gunships and use
Alright so many of you might file this under the, "Yeah, of course you can do this" category, the number of folks I've seen sharing this tip today leads me to believe that the whole add web sites to your home screen thing has become lost knowledge in the modern days of the App Store.
Even though augmented reality isn't really that big of a part of Pokemon GO [Free] (most players turn off the feature anyway), the game has become synonymous with the technology. Now that Apple is really leaning into AR with iOS 11 and ARKit, I've been curious to see whether Pokemon GO's developer, Niantic, will once
If you're looking for a quick shooter game where you and 4 others can take on teams of 5 in real-time combat, Tango 5 is probably a game you should keep an eye on. The game, which has soft launched in the Philippines today, has you competing with other teams in best of three matches,
Get ready for another great digital port as Roll for the Galaxy, the award-winning dice game of building space empires, is on its way to the digital realm. In Roll for the Galaxy, your dice represents your people, and you'll have to (as is usually the case) direct them to develop new technologies, settle other
Out of all the amazing iOS games I've played over the past nine years, there is an extra special place in my heart for Solomon's Keep [Free]. Developer Raptisoft launched the game on April 2nd, 2010 which was the day after I officially began working for TouchArcade as a freelance writer. Its mixture of dual-stick
Digital versions of board games have been a great way to make the games more accessible and easier to play when compared to their physical brethren, but there's something to be said for the social aspect of an actual board game night that the digital realm just cannot replicate. Dized is hoping to bring you the
It's a good time for those who like adventure games. In addition to the release of the fantastic Thimbleweed Park (which we really liked in our review), we also got the first price drop for Full Throttle Remastered [$2.99], the classic 1995 LucasArts game that puts you in the middle of a tale of "Motorcycles, Mayhem, and Murder."
IFTTT.com is a powerful utility for automating all sorts of small things. The site's acronym stands for, "If This, Then That," which sort of tells you everything you need to know about using IFTTT. You set a trigger from any number of a massive array of things IFTTT can look for which cover everything from
Accidental Queens' Another Lost Phone [$2.99] was an unexpected hit that resonated with players partly because of its unflinching approach to what some would consider controversial topics, and Another Lost Phone: Laura's Story, releasing on the 21st, is going to give us another chance to delve into someone's phone and personal life. Today, Accidental Queens
Following the typical cadence of iOS releases, iOS 11 was originally revealed at WWDC this summer then predictably released mere moments ago leading up to the iPhone 8 launch this Friday. I feel like most of the benefits of iOS 11 are going to be on the iPad where the new icon dock along the
We're likely only a couple hours away from Apple throwing the switch to release iOS 11 to the world. Once you update, 32-bit apps like the TouchArcade app along with a ton of other games will no longer work on your iOS device. It sucks, but it's a reality we've all been slowly coming to
Words With Friends [Free] became one of the early ambassadors of mobile gaming when it launched 8 years ago, finding its way to the phones of many who wouldn't call themselves "gamers" at that point in time. To celebrate its 8 anniversary, Words With Friends continues its growth but this time around we are getting pop-culture
Aftermath [$2.99] is a very atmospheric dual-stick zombie shooter that's near and dear to my heart, and I'm so thrilled to be reporting today that this incredibly niche little game has received iOS 11 support in its first update in nearly four years. This probably ties with Rogue Touch as the most surprising updates in
Two months ago we caught wind of a very cool looking trailer for an upcoming stunt driving game from developer Little Chicken Game Company simply called Rekt. The game has you driving around a large open map using a variety of vehicles to track down various jumps, ramps, and loop-de-loops in order to pull of
