Capcom And Telltale Respond Regarding Their Removed Games, And It's Good News

We've gotten quite a response from today's article about the recent issue of games being removed from the App Store and/or purchase histories, and although I'm still in the process of hearing from some publishers, I thought it would be prudent to follow-up with those who have officially replied. After all, this is a pretty

Tin Man Games Delivers The Four Leaf Clover Of Gamebook News

I’ve never hid the fact that I love the combination “choose your own adventure” / RPG style of entertainment that has come to be known as the “gamebook adventure”.  It’s also common knowledge if you’ve been with me long enough that my favorite developer in this genre is Tin Man Games.  They’ve been developing this … Read more

Strategy Card Game 'Chronicle: Runescape Legends' Looks Promising, Closed Beta Coming Soon

Another day, another card game, but this one looks like it's charting its own path away from the likes of Hearthstone, and that's a good thing in my books. Chronicle: Runescape Legends is an upcoming CCG based on the Runescape MMO, and it's promising an interesting new twist on the CCG formula. CRL offers expansive

'Sage's Sky' Review - How Far Can You Fling This Bird, Anyway?

Sage's Sky [Free] is a quaint and colorful stamina-driven, "launcher" platformer where you play as a small, gray bird called Sage. The goal is to navigate a linear, minimalist landscape in a quest to improve your stats and out-do your own high scores. The game features a variety of upgrades that allow Sage to fly

'Sentinels of the Multiverse' Adds Multiplayer Next Week, Celebrates Anniversary With Sale

The card game Sentinels of the Multiverse [$9.99 (HD)] is often praised as a great co-op game with players joining forces (and decks) to fight against various villains. So, when its digital version hit the App Store almost exactly a year ago, many were disappointed to find that the game only had a single-player mode.

New Spoilers for 'Minecraft: Pocket Edition' 0.13 Update - Adding Rabbits and Probably Reworking the UI

If you've been playing Minecraft: Pocket Edition [$6.99] since the big 0.12 update, you're probably enjoying how the game is now closer to the PC version than ever before with all kinds of new features added and plenty others reworked.

The Microsoft Display Dock Lets You Use Your Windows 10 Phone as a PC

Last week, as part of a series of editorials, we discussed the idea of the PC as we know it potentially going away as technology continues to converge upon mobile devices. Many, many commenters took this to mean that we thought PC desktop style experiences were going to vanish in exchange for highly disposable mobile

'The Sequence' Review - The Incredible Grid Machine

One of my favorite games growing up was The Incredible Machine. While the IP has been sadly dragged through the mud in recent years, it was once a work of art, tricking kids everywhere into partaking in what was essentially edutainment. The concept was clear -- simply get an object to its goal while using

'Need For Speed: No Limits' Review - More Timers, Less Aaron Paul

It was four years ago that EA bought Firemint, and many people at the time were worried about the latter studio’s future. Surely this would be the end of the beloved developer who brought us App Store classics like Flight Control and the Real Racing series, right? Surely EA would suck the life out of

'Gamebook Adventures 11: Songs Of The Mystics' Review - A Little Too Random

With the Gamebook Adventures series winding to at least a temporary close, Tin Man has opted to release the last couple of volumes at the same time. I'm not going to fib, I'm a pretty big fan of this series and the fictional world of Orlandes it uses as a setting. From a story-telling standpoint,

The Solution to App Store Purchase History Removals Lies in... The African Nation of Burkina Faso

The App Store and weird drama go together like peas and carrots. If you've been following TouchArcade for the last week or so you're already aware that the recent drama all hinges around loads of classic, premium-priced, iOS games that have not only vanished from the App Store, but also the purchase histories of anyone

EA, Telltale, Capcom, Sega, 2K and More High Profile Premium Games Removed From the App Store and Customer Purchase Histories - Apple Must Step in Before Consumer Confidence Is Completely Eroded

Whether you ascribe it to deliberate planning, serendipity, or something in between, Apple is now the holder of one of the largest gaming platforms in the world. It's an unexpected turn for a company that always seemed to place a low priority on video games, and the company's inexperience has come through in a variety

The RPG Reload Podcast - 009 - 'Wizardry: Labyrinth Of Lost Souls'

It's the time of the month once again for merriment and wonder with Eric Ford, Andy Fretz, and yours truly on the RPG Reload Podcast. This month, our featured game is Wizardry: Labyrinth Of Lost Souls, but we spend just as much time talking about the series in general as we do about this particular

'Solforge' Teases Big Upcoming Changes to the Game, Gives Glimpse of New UI

Solforge [Free], Stoneblade's innovative CCG that went the digital-only route even before Hearthstone came out, is heading for a major overhaul in the next few months as it moves from beta to full release. If you haven't played Solforge before, this CCG has a smart leveling system where each card has 3 (or 4) levels,

'Murder', a Very Intriguing Cyberpunk Adventure Game, Hits Mobile October 21st

I like Cyberpunk stories and games for the questions they raise on machine-human interactions, questions that are becoming more and more relevant to us as machines and robots continue to evolve around us (while we don't). Murder, an upcoming cyberpunk adventure game created by Peter Moorhead and published by Curve Digital, aims to explore the

If you've been watching entertainment news or you enjoy sci-fi books, you'll know that Andy Weir's The Martian, which has just hit the movie theaters, is set to conquer the box office the same way the book has captured the public's imagination. I mean, the movie and book couldn't have hoped for a better marketing boost
