Kitty Korner Alert: 'Box Cat' Updated with Widescreen and iOS 8 Support, On Sale for 99¢

Long-time TA'ers may remember a segment we used to do on our podcast called Jared's Kitty Korner, where each week we highlighted the cream of the crop in the world of cat games. We've since retired the segment, but every once in a while some hot cat game news pops up and it's time to

'Skater' Review - Two Shoes and a Board

Skating games were my life for months at a time. Whether it was the next Tony Hawk iteration or EA's SKATE, every time a shiny new skating title would hit my doorstep, I'd be engrossed in that world for weeks on end. I wasn't the best skater in the real world, but digitally I was

'Bumper Tank Battle' from 'Cubed Rally Racer' Creator Coming Next Week

The best way to describe Jared Bailey's next game is that it's Joust with tanks, and yeah, that is pretty much what Bumper Tank Battle is. Releasing next Thursday, October 30th, this is the latest in a series of micro-games that the creator of Cubed Rally Racer [$0.99 / $1.99 (HD)] has been making, following

'Proun+' Will Finally Bring the Artsy Tunnel Racer to iOS

Dutch developer Joost van Dongen's Proun was a successful indie racing game made a few years ago that had been on a lot of folks' wishlists for a port to iOS, especially after last year's announcement that it was coming soon. Now three years after the original's release, Engine Software has teamed up with van

Highly Anticipated 'Seabeard' Soft Launches in Canada

It's almost reached meme status to ask where Seabeard is every Wednesday following our GDC coverage of the game. Published by Backflip and developed by Hand Circus, the pedigree behind this game is just incredible. The version shown at GDC looked awesome, and that was months ago: It just soft launched this morning, so I

'Wavefront' Review - The Challenge of Relaxation

I found myself kind of curious about Wavefront [$0.99] when I saw that it was published by DeNA – and it wasn't a free-to-play game. It started out as Waveform on PC, and now has been brought to iOS under the new name, for unknown reasons. Curious. But it still doesn't answer why this was

'Swap Heroes' Review - Bite-Sized Challenge

I enjoy this current trend of games that are easy to pick up and play, but also present a challenge. And really, Swap Heroes hits a lot of my buttons. It's built for short sessions, winds up being challenging and highly replayable, and oh, it has pixel art. It's perfect for quick sessions, but delivers

Someone Has Made a Working iPhone Inside of 'Minecraft'

It never fails to blow my mind just how incredibly deep the game of Minecraft is. What on the surface seems like an adventure that's all about exploring, crafting, block-building and survival has evolved into something that's sophisticated enough people can build working computers inside the game itself. The world of iPhone games hasn't been

There's a New 'Street Fighter' Match-3 Game Heading to iOS and Android in Japan

One of my all-time favorites is Capcom's Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo, or simply just Puzzle Fighter, which blends together the Street Fighter fighting game series with matching gameplay to great effect. We haven't heard much from that series in recent years, but according to the source for all things Street Fighter Shoryuken (via Just

'Boulder Dash 30th Anniversary' Now Available

In January of this year, Tapstar Interactive and First Star Software announced a brand new game in the classic Boulder Dash series to mark the 30th anniversary of the original game's release. Originally planned for an "early 2014" release, the new game took a bit longer than anticipated, but as of today Boulder Dash 30th

'Jack B. Nimble' Review - Not To Be Confused With Simon B. Elmont

As a developer, if you're going to wade neck-deep into a crowded genre, especially one in a very crowded marketplace in general, you have to have some kind of means of standing out from the crowd. When it comes to side-scrolling running games, it's getting harder and harder to find something that can actually accomplish

'Words for Evil' for iPad Review - Blobs Teach Typing

Playing Mario Teaches Typing and Typing of the Dead for the first time were magical experiences for me growing up. I had no real interest in word games outside of the occasional Word Munchers binge, but those two titles took my love for the genre to a whole new level. It wasn't because of typing classes

Zen's 'South Park Pinball' Gets a Trailer, Launching this Week

Earlier this month, Zen Studios hinted that they had a couple of new pinball tables in the works starring everyone's favorite troublemakers from South Park, and today they've debuted the first trailer showing off both tables in action. The first table is South Park Super Sweet Pinball and it centers around the main four characters

TouchArcade Game of the Week: 'Zombie Highway 2'

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

Best iPhone and iPad Games of the Week: 10/10/14 - 'Banner Saga', 'Inferno 2', 'Skylanders' and More

I'm basically the iOS Nostradamus, as last I predicted last week we'd be seeing a ton more great games get released now that we're in Q4, and sure enough, this is one of our biggest best games roundups in a while. Keep in mind, these are games reviewed this week- Not necessarily games that were

'Terra Battle' Review - Final Fantasy's Creator Works His Magic On Social RPGs

Some gamers know Hironobu Sakaguchi's name. Others do not. Just about everyone is familiar with his work, however. He's the creator of the Final Fantasy series of games, the director of Final Fantasy 1 through 5, one of the designers of Chrono Trigger, the producer or executive producer of Final Fantasy 6 through 12, and

'Temple Run 2' Adds NFL Players Starting with Colin Kaepernick and Russell Wilson

Temple Run 2 [Free] knows how to do smart branding. Getting Usain Bolt to be in the game was a perfect choice. And now, with the announcement that NFL players are going to be in Temple Run 2 starting today. The first two players are NFL quarterbacks Colin Kaepernick of the San Francisco 49ers and

'Pumped BMX 2' Review - I Want To Ride This Bicycle

Side-scrolling games where you ride through a course performing tricks and stunts seem to be all the rage these days, mostly thanks to the sudden popularity the Trials series found several years ago. That rise coincided nicely with the fall of 3D open world trick games like the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater series, ensuring that
