Heads up for anyone playing Clash of Kings [Free] – if you participate on publisher ELEX's forums, then you're gonna want to change your password, as ZDNet is reporting that an anonymous hacker leaked over 1.6 million users' data. Passwords are hashed and salted, but even Facebook access tokens were leaked, along with emails, so
I first played Guild of Dungeoneering [$3.99] on PC at PAX South 2015, and I thought from the first time I played it that it would be perfect for mobile. Well, it took a year and a half between the game's continued development and PC release to finally make it happen, but this curious little
As has been predicted a couple of days ago, the world-consuming phenomenon known as Pokemon GO [Free] has finally launched in Japan. Seems like kind of a bum deal that they had to wait this long, seeing as The Pokemon Co is based in Japan, but better late than never I always say. Also this
Hello, gentle readers, and welcome to the RPG Reload, the weekly feature where heroes might be gone, but are never forgotten. Each week, we take a look at an RPG from the App Store's past to see how it holds up in the here and now. It's a chance to revisit old favorites, reflect on
There's nothing finer than when a great game from years past gets an update out of the blue. That's the case today with the fantastic Picross game Paint it Back [Free], which originally launched way back in October of 2013 and hasn't seen an actual content update in nearly two years to the day. Developer
If we're not at peak emoji yet as a society, it feels like we definitely should be. The emoji concept has gone far beyond what anyone in Japan could have envisioned when the people there unleashed it on an unsuspecting world, but the West has taken it and just kept running over the past few years.

In October of last year, Next Games launched a very interesting game based around AMC's The Walking Dead series called The Walking Dead: No Man's Land [Free]. In the game you were tasked with building a compound in order to keep your survivor friends safe from the zombies, so pretty typical base-building type of stuff,

Kiz Studios, makers of popular mobile titles like Wonky Ship [Free] and Might and Mayhem [Free], are currently working on their next mobile project, a top-down shooter called Dash Galactic.

One of the big charms of Disney Emoji Blitz is seeing a wide variety of beloved Disney and Pixar characters transformed into smiling emojis. Even someone like the sneaky Randall from Monsters Inc., who probably never cracked a smile on film, is happy as can be until your time is running out. [Read more]
If you loved Dots [Free], and couldn't get enough of Two Dots [Free], you'll be happy to know that Playdots, Inc has made the series into a trilogy with the recent release of Dots & Co [Free]. Alternatively, if all this Dots business is news to you, and you're at all into really well done
As mentioned when we first heard about the game, Strange Flavour's Fish! [$2.99] is the spiritual successor to Flick Fishing, one of the many amazing old Freeverse games that kicked the bucket when they got rolled into the ngmoco (then DeNA) katamari. Fish! is a no-freemium nonsense premium fishing game that plays an awful lot

Back before Pokemon Go [Free] took over the App Store, all anyone seemed to care about was Agar.io [Free] (and then Slither.io [Free]). If you've never played one of these.io games, imagine an MMO stripped down to its very core. In Agar.io you play as a roaming blob, sucking up other smaller blobs. In
Niantic's Pokemon Go [Free] is already the biggest mobile game in the US, and it seems excitement surrounding the Japanese launch could not possibly be more than it is right now. Since the cultural impact of Pokemon Go (at least in the countries its available in) has been unmistakable, my favorite Pokemon Go news now

Versus Evil is a publisher perhaps most known for helping to bring Banner Saga [$4.99] to the world, but the self-styled indie publisher – and it's a small outfit, comprised of three principals right now, including general manager Steve Escalante – is looking to make a bigger footprint beyond that. They've had a presence at
