'Devious Dungeon' Review - Random Heroes Meets Rogue Legacy With Good Results

Ravenous Games first landed on people's radars with the awesome League of Evil [$1.99] a few years back, but it's pretty safe to say their output has been a bit of a mixed bag overall since. Looking at their last couple of releases, Random Runners [Free] was a complete misfire, and before that, League of

TouchArcade Game of the Week: 'Wave Wave'

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

'Block Legend' Review - A Legendary Puzzler No One Should Miss

When you have a trailer as awesome as Block Legend [$1.99], you better have a good game behind it to back up that hype goodness. Luckily the devs behind this RPG puzzler matched their self-made hype and then some. Streamlined combat (complete with random encounters), loads of unlockable content and a robust RPG match-2 overlay

Platformer Shoot 'em Up Hybrid 'Glorkian Warrior: The Trials of Glork' Launching Next Week

Back in late January, a trailer caught my eye for a game called Glorkian Warrior: The Trials of Glork, an upcoming iOS project that blended the comic stylings of James Kochalka with the video game chops of Pixeljam Games. Not only was it a mashup of two creative entities, but it was also a mashup

'Plague Inc.' Getting a "Mega" Update in April Adding New Cheats, Scenarios and "Mega Brutal" Difficulty Option

The strategy game that just keeps on giving, Ndemic's Plague Inc. [$0.99], is giving yet again with a brand new update that's scheduled to hit sometime next month. To back things up a bit, Plague Inc. is a game that tasks you with unleashing a plague on the world, with the ultimate goal of eradicating

'Midnight Bite' Review - A Bitesize Snack For Stealth Lovers

In a throwback to the days before fictional whiny teenage boys who sparkle in the sun, cute, quirky, stealth action game Midnight Bite [$1.99] manages to recapture the essence of the cool, caped retro style bloodsucker and replenish the hunger of the vampire-loving public. In Midnight Bite, you play as Draku, a little vampire dude

'Floyd's Worthwhile Endeavour' Review - Hat's The Way To Do It!

Ghost hats, packs of vicious dogs, and strutting ostriches. If you’re giving me a strange look, then you haven’t heard of Floyd’s Worthwhile Endeavour [$0.99], a platform game that utilizes a combination of magnificent 19th Century photography and bizarre elements to concoct one of the most eccentric and fascinating games you will ever lay eyes

'Beyond Space' Review - Shooting and Talking Smack in Space

In space no one can hear you scream, but you can hear a lot of corny camp voice acting. It is hard to explain that an assignment as an astronaut that takes years to even come close to achieving in 2014 are left to complete jackasses in the future. Nevertheless that is what we are

'The Walking Dead: Season Two' Review - Experience The Apocalypse From A Different Perspective

You might recall that with The Walking Dead: Season One [Free], we did something of an unorthodox review due to the episodic nature of the game. There was a basic overview that was appended to with a review of each episode as they released, with the score adjusting appropriately. As it worked pretty well last

Late Arrival 'Block Legend' Hits the App Store, You Have to Check Out Its Release Trailer

As if last night's huge list of new iOS releases wasn't enough, there's a late-comer to the party that's been generating quite a buzz in our forums since it showed up in New Zealand earlier today. It's Block Legend [$1.99] from Dot Warrior Games, and to quote a member of our forums, "…imagine crossing that

Gorgeous Flight Game 'Cloud Spin' Now Universal and On Sale for 99¢

A previously iPad-only title is getting a shot at a much wider audience thanks to a new Universal update. Cloud Spin [$0.99] from Skytrain Studios is a visually stunning flight game that Eli and myself loved in our initial TA Plays video as well as in our 4.5 star review. In Cloud Spin, you play

Darkseid Comes Exclusively to 'Injustice: Gods Among Us' On Mobile, Plus Why This is One of My Favorite iOS Games

Here's something you might not know about me: I'm obsessed with the mobile version of Injustice: Gods Among Us [Free]. It's funny too, because, when the game first launched in April of last year, I really liked it upon first impression. However, as with many free to play games (and I'm sure I'm not the

Square Enix Kicks Off Mobile Sale in Strangest Way Possible By Asking, "Who Needs Books?"

I can't think of the last time we've posted the text of a press release around here (if ever), but this one that crossed our inboxes this morning is just too ridiculous to not share. To back things up a bit, I don't really follow all the crazy holidays we have now, so I had

Square Enix Releases Free to Play 'Rise of Mana' in Japan

As predicted in a news post not long ago, Square Enix have released Rise of Mana on the Japanese App Store. We've got a thread for it in our forums if you want to join in on registering a Japanese iTunes account and trying to figure out how to play the game which currently features

OnLive is Back via New "CloudLift" Cloud Gaming Service

The saga of OnLive has been a crazy one, and as a major proponent of the service since the first time I heard of it, it's more than a little depressing to retell. Founded in 2003, OnLive is a company that set out to change the way we play games. (How many times have you

'The Descent' Review - Chasing The Unknown

Perhaps one of the most visually stunning games on the iPad so far, The Descent [$2.99] takes full advantage of the Unity3D graphics engine in order to build on a wonderfully deep and immersive player experience that takes you through deserts, caves, the afterworlds and more on a quest to find missing daughter Liza. Historical

Latest 'Real Racing 3' Update Adds Controller Support, Car Customization, Photo Mode and More

Following Real Racing 3's [Free] first anniversary last week where they were giving out a free in-game Porsche, EA and Firemonkeys have just released a pretty huge new update to the game adding a bunch of customization options, photo sharing, controller support and new luxury vehicles from Aston Martin. The new customization options allow you

'Continue?9876543210' Review - In My Time Of Dying

Does anything drive humans as much as our awareness of mortality? No other animal sees a bush, calls it a bush, draws the bush, gives the bush a back story, then cries when the bush dies. It's arguably the saddest, and most beautiful quality humans possess. We have awareness of the world, we can create

Yep, 'Walking Dead: The Game - Season 2' Episode 2 Hits iOS this Thursday

Late last week, Telltale sent the word out that the second episode of Walking Dead: The Game - Season 2 [$4.99] would be hitting this week… on PlayStation, PC, Mac and Steam. True to their word, it is indeed available right now on those platforms, but for whatever reason there was no confirmation on when
