A "gotta catch 'em all" joke seems appropriate here, even though we're talking animals in Rodeo Stampede and not pocket monsters. By now you've probably had plenty of rides, tamed some animals and built yourself a pretty nice zoo [Read more]
Kongregate and Fox Digital Entertainment have announced a new CCG that features quite the interesting crossover cast in Animation Throwdown: The Quest for Cards.

Hello everyone. Normally, I would be welcoming you all to another extensive recap of all news Hearthstone [Free], but unfortunately this last week was extremely busy for me since I was preparing for my return to the US after two years away. As a result, I couldn't put together one of my usual articles for you.
Hello everyone, and welcome to the week! It's time once again for our look back at the noteworthy updates of the last seven days. We've got a nice mix of the new and the old appearing this week, but as usual, it's mostly tilted towards free-to-play games. Of course, you can keep an eye out
The world is changing. Last week, the U.K. voted to exit the European Union. Now U.K. game developers, investors and others weigh in on what such a 'Brexit' means for the game industry at large....
So you've sunken plenty of hours into crawling around in slither.io on your iPhone or iPad. You've got your stories of tragedy and triumph, the times you coiled four snakes at one time balanced out by the others when you had a length of more than 30,000 and some little jerk swerved in front of you at the last second.

As promised, we return this week following our last episode which centralized around E3 and didn't have much game chat to... Spend most of the podcast going over the cool iOS games we've been playing this week. Those games, in order, include: Disco Zoo [Free], its similarities to the new Rodeo Stampede [Free], the weird
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
Korean developer Lacuna King has unveiled a new project on our forums called Slime-Ball-Istic Mr. Missile, but since that's kind of a mouthful let's just go with Mr. Missile. It takes the classic missile-defending gameplay of Missile Command and adds lovely pixel graphics and real-world locations to the mix, along with a storyline of invading
In Rodeo Stampede, honing your skills so you can jump from animal to animal and outrun the herd as long as possible is only half the fun. Once you've tamed a few animals, you can bring them home with you. [Read more]
Back in September of last year, prolific mobile developer Ravenous Games announced a new project called Shadowstone: The Lost Oath, a top-down dungeon crawling action RPG with randomized levels.

Namco has soft launched a new shoot 'em up called Galaga Wars in Canada and Australia. Now, when I first heard the name, I thought "Oh no, Namco's trying to do a Galaga Clash of Clans [Free] clone?" Because that's what "Wars" seemed to indicate. Amazingly, no: this is basically the Galaga take on Pac-Man
A pretty interesting trailer rolled across our desk here at TouchArcade today for an upcoming strategy game from developer Selva Interactive called Nanuleu. The story of Nanuleu is that long dormant ancient magical trees that can protect the land from dark forces have awoken, sensing a new threat coming. Your job is to gather resources,
It seems like the theme of the month is classic games getting removed from the App Store for one reason or another. It seems that PopCap's original Plants vs Zombies is the latest fabulous title to get silently nuked. The "good" news, if you'd call it that, is Plants vs Zombies Free [Free] remains on
At GDC Europe 2016 Kongregate's Anthony Pecorella will study how "idle games" have evolved -- and what lessons game devs can learn. Prepare to get inexplicably excited about seeing numbers go up!...
Perhaps Playdek took the Cold War theme of its game a bit too seriously when it decided to stealthily unleash its port of the classic board game Twilight Struggle [$7.99 (HD)] onto the App Store. Twilight Struggle, the award-winning, card-driven board game that simulates the Cold War, has been very eagerly awaited by board game
