Hello, gentle readers, and welcome to the RPG Reload, the weekly feature where we regularly engage in medieval dumpster diving. Each week, we take a look at an RPG from the murky mists of the App Store's past to see how it stands in the judgmental light of the modern day. It's equal parts reflection,
Amused Sloth, who made the solid Asgard Run [Free] circular endless runner, are about to deliver an interesting little voxel-graphics high-score chaser called Disco Dave. The gameplay will have you bouncing up in the air as a bell-bottoms-wearing, afro-sporting, dudde named Dave. You swipe to move while in the air, and you need to not
Amidst the ever increasing influx of free to play games that are riddled with timers and in game currency, there has been a backwards reaction from fans and developers alike rejecting this culture and desiring an experience that is immediate and complete from the moment you download it. Even though there are some excellent freemium
Unity Technologies has made some changes to the new pricing scheme it launched last month due to complaints from its community that the new model can be too expensive for select Unity developers....
10tons is a rather accomplished publisher and developer on iOS, in part because they're committed to being as multiplatform as is literally possible. Pretty much every single one of their games releases on desktop, console, and mobile. Their latest game, a roguelike twin-stick shooter called Neon Chrome is no exception. Or, it's about to be.
The Wall Street Journal has an interesting report about Tencent's pending acquisition of Supercell from SoftBank, also the parent company of GungHo. Tencent's reportedly paying $9 billion for Supercell, after SoftBank spent $2.1 billion to acquire a 51% stake in Supercell back in October 2013. Tencent has $16 billion in net cash according to the
Noodlecake's Super Stickman Golf 3 is set to release in early July, but the developers need a bit of help from the community in order to make the game perfect for launch. Specifically, they need beta testers to help get the game ready for the global launch. How do you sign up to beta test
We brought news last week that 1979 Revolution [$4.99] by developer iNK Stories was to be released on the App Store soon, and thankfully the wait was not too arduous as this morning the game was finally released. However, it really is a 'game' in the loosest sense, but definitely not in a bad way.
When we looked at Power Hover [$3.99] back in December of last year in our review, we were generally impressed by the fun arcade style hover-board action and beautiful cel-shaded visuals, even if there wasn't that much derivation from the enjoyable core gameplay at its heart. However, the developer Oddrok has been extremely busy both
You know Warbits [$3.99] is good when our very own Carter breaks his allegiance with 3.5 stars and gives it 4.5. The Advance War "inspired" wargame continues to be fun both in single player and multiplayer, and the latest update should make it even more fun. Update 1.1 will do wonders for your multiplayer gaming
It's officially summertime. The temperatures are higher, the days are almost as long as they can possibly get, and schools are out almost everywhere. Time for a vacation, or holiday, as my British bosses would say. [Read more]
We've been closely following Bethesda's The Elder Scrolls: Legends for quite a while now, as more than a few of us at TouchArcade Towers are massive fans of collectable card games. We got to spend a little bit of time today with the game running on an iPad, and while we weren't able to record
If you're reading TouchArcade and haven't played at least one of the games from Grumpyface Studios, we should probably send some scientists to study you because that's just crazy. They consistently make games that are not only fun to play, but the animations are amazing. My personal favorite of theirs is Bring Me Sandwiches [Free],
Locojoy Games is one of the top mobile game developers in China, and they're partnering up with US-based Narvalous to bring one of their more popular games, the action RPG Dragon Raja, to the North American market. During E3 we were able to play a brief demo of Dragon Raja, and while it certainly treads
Galak-Z: Variant Mobile, the mobile-centric version of the popular space shooter Galak-Z: The Dimensional on PlayStation 4 and desktop, was announced nearly a year ago in August of 2015, and it finally looks like it's just about ready for release. I absolutely fell in love with the trailers for the console version when it launched,
Questing for good, for the betterment of all mankind, has its place. Adventuring for fun and profit, though, is where it's at. [Read more]
The Power Rangers are coming back with a new movie releasing on March 24, 2017, because no retro franchise shall go un-rebooted. I loved Power Rangers as a kid, but also remember being mocked for my Power Rangers backpack, so I'm not sure just how much retro love there is for Power Rangers. Regardless, Hollywood's
We're big fans of RareSloth's King Rabbit [Free] around here, and the game has just gotten another big, free content update after its launch. The main campaign has been extended with 16 new levels, so if you've beaten it and need more rabbit-y goodness in your life, here you go. Three new achievements and a
11 Bit Studios have earned a very deserved reputation as one of the best developers on the App Store. Ever since the launch of Anomaly: Warzone Earth [$1.99] back in 2012 which completely reversed the tired Tower Defence genre on its head with beautiful graphics to boot - and even won an Apple Design Award
It's a fantastic year to be a Pokemon fan. As well as it being the 20th anniversary of the series, the seventh generation of the mainline titles Pokemon Sun and Moon are set to hit 3DS at the end of the year and even more groundbreaking is that the very first Pokemon and even Nintendo
