If you're the kind of person who finds the idea of managing a farm oddly compelling but hate the over-simplification found in games like Hay Day, boy do I have a game for you. It's called Farming Simulator 14, and if you fancy yourself as someone who loves an in-depth sim regardless of
It's that time of the month again, and without missing a beat, we have a new RPG from Kemco. Destiny Fantasia comes to us by way of developer WorldWideSoftware, Kemco's original mobile partners in crime. They're most famously the developers behind Symphony of Eternity and Symphony of the Origin, and they, in my opinion,
My favorite beat 'em ups have character and personality, tight combat and hit-boxes, and responsive controls that allow for tactical decision making. If they also have referential humor, a great art direction, a kick ass soundtrack, and a bad ass bear-punching, beard-having protagonist - like in Fist of Awesome - that's even better. This game
With the PS4 hitting store shelves today (Or last night if you're particularly hardcore) we dedicated a good portion to the start of our podcast discussing our plans for next generation consoles. Jared is in "wait and see" mode, I'm waffling on a Xbox One, and Mike Meade apparently is happy with his Nintendo 64.
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
The force is strong with this pseudo-sequel to Nimblebit's tower builder.
Last month Foursaken Media announced a long-awaited sequel to their genre-blending 2011 hit Bug Heroes, and this week they've released the first two actual in-game screenshots. The original Bug Heroes was a dual-stick shooter at its core, but featured elements of tower defense and a fairly robust character leveling system. The different gaming aspects blended
Back at GDC in June of this year, we got a sneak peek at a very early version of Turbo Dismount, Secret Exit's follow-up title to their absurd and strangely compelling physics game Stair Dismount. For Turbo Dismount, the team was using the Unity engine rather than their own in-house engine, giving them a
As we noted in our review, Gameloft’s GT Racing 2 is a great addition to the long line of excellent full-featured racers on iOS. While its freemium underpinnings are relatively benign, there’s still plenty of opportunity to get caught in that trap of feeling the need to pay in order to advance. The purpose of this
Today is the one year anniversary of the launch of King.com's mobile version of Candy Crush Saga, and the developers are announcing an incredible statistic: It has been downloaded over half a billion times. Candy Crush is without a doubt a worldwide hit, but to put that number into perspective, per 2013 estimates ever
"Second screen experiences," as they've been dubbed, have been pretty lame in previous releases. The Call of Duty and Halo second screen content have been the best that I've seen, but even those were basically just a vaguely relevant web page being shown on your iPad while you play the game. Battlefield 4 Tablet Commander
With the long-awaited release of Oceanhorn this week, there has been a lot of talk about its very heavy inspiration from the classic Zelda series. Now, don't get me wrong, Oceanhorn itself is a phenomenal experience, and the developers have been completely upfront since the very beginning about them taking inspiration from Zelda. However, while
Rayman Jungle Run turned a lot of heads when it hit the App Store, and it's not hard to see why. The graphics were gorgeous, the music was infectious, the controls felt good, and the challenge offered something for players of all skill levels. It took console big brother Rayman Origins and distilled it down
Given the rather obvious angle of the art direction and marketing for this title, you'll have to forgive me for having been skeptical of Spirit Stones. With top-heavy, scantily-clad women all over the place, it almost appears to be trying to make up for something. What that something might be is still not apparent
As if yesterday's onslaught of new releases wasn't enough, SNK Playmore quietly snuck in a new iOS port of their 1997 Neo Geo fighting game The King of Fighters '97 to the App Store. KOF '97 is the fourth entry in SNK's The King of Fighters series, which features a mashup of characters from previous
An excellent sequel to the amazing tower offense series.
Have you ever played a game that had particularly boring levels, but kick ass boss fights? What if you could just have a game where you fought boss after boss, ignoring all the goons along the way? That's the driving concept behind Infinity Danger. You get into a boss fight, get out, and move
Football Heroes by Run Games is a sports lover’s wet dream come true. Combining crazy gameplay elements from past satirical sports franchises (Mutant League Football, Blitz, and Tecmo Bowl) with simplistic and strategic play-calling, Football Heroes is without question the best American sports portrayal on the app store. FB leaves out all seriousness and infuses
It's interesting how much a simple fresh coat of paint can improve a well-worn genre. Today's example is Warlord Revival, from the familiar faces at EXE Create, who have apparently decided to counter-program the release of their last RPG, Infinite Dunamis, with this one. The funny thing about this game is that it's
To say that Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas is like The Legend of Zelda, particularly the seafaring The Wind Waker game, is an understatement. Developer Cornfox & Bros. is unapologetic in its attempt to emulate the successful Nintendo action-adventure series. This is Zelda through and through, but it’s not as good. Pretty damn close, though.
