If you enjoyed the collection of puzzles in 2012's The Curse [$1.99], then you'll want to get your Excited Hat on as developer Mojo Bones has announced that the follow-up title called The Voyage is hitting the App Store this Thursday. The Voyage is a similar collection of classic brain teasers all tied together with
Nostalgia is a heck of a thing. Like many of you, I like to indulge in revisiting my childhood on occasion. To tell the truth, though, when it comes to games, I feel like I never fully left my childhood favorites behind. Not only am I big on retro collections and classic re-releases, I actually
If you had asked me back in the 90s which of the popular and/or long-running adventure series would be more or less the last one standing almost 20 years later, I doubt I would have guessed Broken Sword, but here we are. With the dissolution of Lucasarts likely putting Monkey Island to rest forever, Sierra
It seems like emulator news is the flavor of the week, between webNES, GBA4iOS, and now Ben Midi's Gameboy. Like webNES, it runs entirely inside of mobile Safari, so unlike GBA4iOS you don't have to install anything weird, roll your date back, or anything else. It works quite well, particularly in landscape mode: Here's the
Historically speaking for iOS gamers, despite being among the largest mobile conventions in the world, Mobile World Congress hasn't ever yielded much we'd be interested in. It's a conference filled with ten million variations of every nearly identical Android device, the hardware that powers cellular networks, and a bunch of other highly technical stuff that
Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas [$6.99] is an indisputable classic of open world gaming. We gave it five stars in our review, which segued right into naming it game of the week. The game's forum thread has been a hive of activity, and it's really hard to come up with more positive things to
This week's podcasts starts with a nice long discussion on emulation, spurred by the recent release of GBA4iOS. From there, we of course talk about the hottest games of the week, including a typical chat on free to play mechanics due to Bug Heroes 2 launching free to play and immediately switching back to paid.
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
Every year mobile hardware gets more and more powerful, rivaling the cutting edge graphics found on dedicated gaming systems. And that's great, but, it's important to remember your roots too. That's why I think there are so many retro-inpsired games still being released. People still love that pixely, old school look. But there's a difference
A worthy entry into the old-school dungeon crawler genre.
The Flappy Jam is still going strong, and currently sitting at 446 games, it's easily the most popular game jam I've ever heard of. Games from it are starting to trickle out on the App Store, and while I'm still holding out for Maverick Bird, Punch Quest [Free] and Sword of Fargoal [$2.99] co-developer Madgarden
Although I have an intense dislike for infirmaries, A&E and doctor’s surgeries, I have for some reason always enjoyed playing games which involve themes surrounding hospitals. When I was a young lass, Theme Hospital was one of my all-time favorite games, just because it made the concept of being ill far less scary. (Yes, Bloatyhead
I love when touchscreens are used in interesting and unique ways, and the upcoming game Primal Flame from developer Irrelevant Fish does just that. You'll start out in total darkness, but a few swipes on the screen with your finger will "light" up your match, giving you limited visibility. From there, you'll need to collect
BeaverTap Games have updated their two main "Mikey" games, Mikey Hooks [$1.99] and Mikey Shorts [$0.99], with official support for MFi iOS 7 controllers. Owners of Mikey Shorts may have noticed that the game already received a controller support update early last week… and then again over this past weekend. Well, there was some wonky
One thing was missing from yesterday's mega-stream: GBA4iOS, the emulator that is seemingly blowing up on every web site that covers anything to do with iOS. So, we'll give it a go, and play some other iOS games too. This might be a shorter stream than usual, as I've got a repair guy that's randomly
The soccer-themed new table for Zen Studios' Zen Pinball [Free], which was announced late last month, is now available to download from within the Zen Pinball app. The way the Super League Football table works is a bit different from the other DLC tables in the game. There are actually eight different versions for the
Late last week we told you about a new free to play racer developed by Eutechnyx and Crooz called ACR Drift [Free], and although a bit later than the rest of the week's new releases the game is now available in the App Store. As if the title wasn't a dead giveaway, ACR Drift is
Games going free are a dime a dozen on the App Store, but rarely does it seem like the games that actually go free fall inside of the narrow focus of hardcore strategy gamers. Well, today is the rare exception to that as the real time strategy game Autumn Dynasty [Free] has dropped in price
While us plebs are busy focusing on doing everything we can to to mash two 768's together, analytically minded folks on our forums are going hog wild deconstructing the algorithms powering the game of Threes! [$1.99]. I'm really not sure I've ever seen anything like it, at least not on our forums, but our Threes!
It's been a long wait, but Tengami [$4.99], the adventure game inspired by pop-up storybooks, has finally been completed. The developer, Nyamyam, is a new name, but you're almost certainly familiar with past projects they've worked on, including Diddy Kong Racing, StarFox Adventures, Way of the Samurai 3, and Kinect Sports. Tengami got a lot
