Back in June we caught wind of a lovely looking upcoming flying game called PixWing from developer RymPow Team, which is comprised of folks who also worked on This War of Mine [$14.99 (HD)] at 11-bit Studio. What really caught my eye about PixWing was its use of blocky textures giving it a decidedly retro
With PAX officially kicking off today, Telltale has sent over some new screens and details from their upcoming adventure Minecraft: Story Mode. Seeing as Minecraft is a massive open-ended game where you can pretty much do whatever you want, Telltale is embracing that theme with Story Mode and for the first time in one of
A Flurry report suggests that while the average daily time Americans spend on mobile devices continues to increase, average time spent playing mobile games has dropped significantly in the past year....
Way back in the before times, when I was a little fellow attending elementary school, I often found myself doodling on the paper in front of me. Well, to be honest, I did that in junior high school, high school, and university, too, but that's neither here nor there. The point is, my imagination wandered
While fans of the game are eagerly awaiting the unveil of Vainglory’s [Free] newest hero, Skye, the folks at Super Evil Megacorp made a pretty significant announcement about the mobile MOBA this morning. The biggest news is the unveiling of Vainglory Seasons, which looks to add a lot more replayability to the current ranked mode available. Essentially,
Earlier this year, when Heroes Of Might & Magic 3 - HD Edition [$4.99 (HD)] released for the iPad, I was hoping it would be the start of Ubisoft porting more of the classic Might & Magic games to iOS. The iPad version of the game had its share of quirks, most of which I outlined
Hello, gentle readers, and welcome to the RPG Reload, the weekly feature where we smash everything in search of new hats. Each week, we pull an RPG from the past of the App Store to see how it holds up to our highly-advanced, futuristic, utopian society. It's a chance to revisit old favorites, reflect on
Adventure Roller Skates is a game we and especially Jared here at TA have been excited to play. But if you too are excited to play Adventure Roller Skates, well, I have bad news: you can't play Adventure Roller Skates, ever. That's because the game has gotten a name change to Raider Rush. Gotcha! Egg
tinyBuild Games' Divide by Sheep [$0.99] was definitely an interesting little puzzle game when it first released, straddling the line between being a casual math puzzler with a cute look, with challenging puzzles and a surprisingly-gory macabre theme. If you haven't checked this one out yet, and you've been meaning to, well, now's as good
Did you miss Adventures of Pip [$9.99] when it was $4.99 at launch? Well, while I think the game is worth $14.99 since it's a good platformer and that's what the game is worth on other platforms, I'm here to tell you about an opportunity to both pay an above-average price for a mobile game
At the beginning of June we were treated to a new trailer for Northway Games' Rebuild 3 along with a vague release window of July or August for the iOS version. Great! Rebuild [$2.99] on iOS was one of the best strategy games I had played, so of course I was excited for the sequel.
Most puzzle games don't necessarily have an impactful message. I mean sure, some of them encourage critical thinking and educate youngsters, but you usually don't see anything meaningful in your puzzle soup. The Path to Luma [Free] switches that up a bit however, as the entire affair is sponsored by NRG (a clean energy company),
In case you guys didn't know, we stream games on Mobcrush. I guess thats like a disclaimer that we enjoy the service. You know who else streams on Mobcrush?

Earlier this month just ahead of Gamescom,, Vivd Games unveiled the trailer for Real Boxing 2, the long-awaited sequel to their popular 2012 boxing simulation game. Using the new Unreal Engine 4, Real Boxing 2 showcased some pretty incredible visuals in that initial trailer. Now earlier today Vivid has sent over a new batch of
It's that time of year again, as Apple has sent out invites for their September media event which traditionally involves them introducing new iPhones and possibly some other fun stuff. As it's an odd year, that means the new iPhone will most likely be an "S" variant with a largely unchanged overall design from the
TEKKEN Card Tournament [Free] was Bandai Namco's attempt to rethink the TEKKEN fighting games by turning the action fighting games into a card fighting game. Although not too many people talk about the game currently, it actually has great reviews on the App Store, so Bandai Namco's attempt was apparently well-executed. By making the game F2P with IAPs, Bandai Namco
The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA), the UK's independent regulator for advertising across all media, has recently taken an interesting stance on some F2P tactics when it ruled that the way some F2P games directly pressure children to make in-game purchases is wrong. Show More Summary
It looks like a good Minecraft news week all around. First, we got the tweet below from Minecraft: Pocket Edition [$6.99] developer Tommaso Checchi, who pretty much called the Beta season for update 0.12 over. If you haven't been following MCPE's development, every new update usually goes through weeks-long beta testing on the Android side of
Last week saw the much-anticipated release of Square Enix's ultra-hit RPG Final Fantasy 7 [$15.99], but the nature of the port is causing some mixed feelings among fans. If you're one of those players feeling a little disappointed in that particular release, let me salve your wounds with some nice, soothing RPG balm. Square Enix's fantastic
