Well, if you thought this week being a holiday week filled with Thanksgiving and Black Friday was going to stop a ridiculous onslaught of brand new iOS games, you'd be wrong- Very wrong, in fact. We're late on posting these today because, unsurprisingly, with Thursday (the normal day iOS games typically are "released") being a

This week we aren't getting a Hearthstone [Free] League of Explorers wing because people will be after turkeys rather than cards. Still, we are getting a smaller Hearthstone fix with the Battle of Tol Barad Tavern Brawl that is now live in NA. Apparently, magical creatures are escaping from Tol Barad (a WOW zone). In this
Well, I think it's time I finally try to become a Hearthstone [Free] Pro. Okay, maybe not, because I lack the dedication, time, and skill, but after reading the Hearthstone Championship Tour announcement, I'm definitely tempted. Blizzard has released the details about what 2016 holds for the Hearthstone Championship Tour, and the news are definitely positive. There
Hearthstone's[Free] League of Explorers has been a fantastic adventure so far and the man with a plan, TommyJ, has the second wing of this adventure on lock down with some brand new decks designed to clear the heavy heroic content while being super light on your wallet. FYI, you may have to end up spending
Animal Crossing amiibo Festival is out right now for the Wii U, reminding us of just how much fun that world can be. Or at least to go back and check in on our villages once in a while. [Read more]

I wish this game wasn't so appropriate for the times we live in, but unfortunately it is. RIOT: Civil Unrest, an upcoming strategy game, takes place in a world where the world's economic crisis is deepening (check), and inequality tears the fabric of society (check). In response to those huge social issues, the people's discontent manifests
True Skate has been around for two and a half years, a lifetime in mobile games. But the cool thing is that it’s still getting upgrades through $0.99 in-app purchased new levels. Unexpected, but very awesome. In True Skate, the player controls a skateboard with two fingers, making this almost like a music timing game. Show More Summary
Strategy games often try to convey a massive sense of scope, having you control entire nations instead of individual troops or units. Heck they even coined a phrase for them: Grand Strategy Wargames. But what if the scope was even grander than that, like say entire galaxies battling each other? That's the idea behind Devouring
A few weeks back I wrote about TheCodingMonkeys' upcoming One Button Travel because I was intrigued by the game's very cryptic trailer. Well, the game is all wrapped up and ready to be released tomorrow, and from my time playing it I can tell you that if you like interactive novels, you should definitely get your hands on
You might know Jools Watsham from his work with Renegade Kid on Mutant Mudds [$8.99] on iOS (which could use an iOS 9 compatibility update), and a variety of DS/3DS games, including horror FPS Dementium and the solid Metroidvania Xeodrifter. Along with Renegade Kid, he's doing some mobile work on the side as part of
Clash of Clans [Free] developers have apparently decided to really change the way the game's played judging by the huge upcoming changes in the Town Hall 11 update.

We're streaming live on Mobcrush right now. There's a couple different ways you can watch the stream, and they all work equally well and it's really just a matter of personal preference as to which method you prefer. The easiest way to watch is just watching the embedded player right here on TouchArcade. In the
Being that developer DotEmu is based in France, it's no surprise that they were at the Paris Games Week show a few weeks back. However, this was the first show where they've actually had their own booth, and it looked like they had a bunch of stuff to show off to fans who stopped by.
I'm always up for some fresh new takes on the roguelike genre. I Wanna be the Hero, exactly that, is looking pretty promising. The developers are claiming inspiration from the spectacular Crypt of the Necrodancer (which really ought to come to mobile), though minus the rhythm aspect of the game. However, this does mean that
Nitrome, fine purveyors of pixel art games, have another new game coming out this Thursday on American Thanksgiving, Go Pogo. You control a character bouncing on a pogo, sliding your finger horizontally to control the angle of the pogo, with wider jumping angles jumping lower but further. And of course, you have to make sure
