Grinding Espers Like It's My Job - The TouchArcade Show #289

For whatever reason the first few seconds of this podcast got clipped off when I was recording, so, you'll just have to use your imagination to fill in the blanks of the normal podcast intro. With some new games finally being released, we've got way more to talk about than what's happened over the last

Cult Flash RPG 'Sonny' Coming to Mobile Courtesy of Armor Games

In late 2008, developer Krin Juangbhanich release a Flash RPG on the Armor Games website called Sonny.

Developer PSA: Don't Forget to Submit Your Games to the IndiePlus 2017 Contest to Potentially Win $10,000

Action Adventure Game 'Legend of Abhimanyu' Hits the App Store This Month

Another interesting tidbit from our forums this morning is the announcement of Legend of Abhimanyu from the India-based studio ACY Entertainment. The game tells the story of the Sanskrit epic Mahabharata which I don't know much about, but according to Wikipedia, it seems like a pretty cool setting for a game: The Mahabharata is an

'Prevail' Is Complete and Will Be Submitted to the App Store Soon

We've posted a ton about Johnny Two Shoes' upcoming open universe game Prevail in the past. The latest story came from early November where the developers were only a few bug fixes away from submitting the game to Apple. Well, it'd seem those few bug fixes took more time than expected, which isn't super surprising

So Why Were the 'Mega Man' Mobile Ports Botched?

The release of the 6 Mega Man [$1.99] games on mobile this morning made us ask one pertinent question, to quote the late, great Vince Lombardi: "What the hell's going on out here?" Ars Technica talked about the badness of the ports, and a commenter stepped forward to claim that they worked on Mega Man

Awesome Games Done Quick Kicks Off This Sunday

We've been posting about Awesome Games Done Quick whenever they do one of their events, not because it has anything to do with mobile gaming, but because they're a super cool organization that puts on an incredible speed run marathon on Twitch to benefit charity that every gamer should know about. If you've never heard

iOS 10 Fix for SteelSeries Stratus MFi Controller Now Available

The SteelSeries Stratus came out ages ago (our review is from 2014) but there really hasn't been anything else like it that has been released in the MFi controller world. There's a bunch of options for larger-sized controllers (I think the best "full" sized MFi controller is the SteelSeries Nimbus) but as far as pint-sized

'Highway Runners' Review - Out Run Your Own High Score

Out Run really was ahead of its time. Released over 30 years ago, Yu Suzuki tapped into the racing market like never before, with a sit-down car-like arcade cabinet and an exploration-based concept. In Out Run the objective wasn't to really "finish first" despite the time limit mechanic. It was all about the journey, providing

'Crowntakers' Gets Universal Update, iPhone Owners Can Now Join in the Fun

It's a tough road for non-universal apps these days, particularly those that are restricted to iPad users. Sometimes it's hard to avoid, especially if the game in question has a lot of small UI elements, but I've always felt that the excellent strategy RPG Crowntakers [$3.99] could work on an iPhone with some adjustments. Moreover,
