'Zombie Highway 2' Launches on October 9th

Auxbrain's latest entry in the Zombie Highway [Free] series, Zombie Highway 2, has a release date locked in for next Thursday, October 9th. This is the latest main entry into the popular series, with last year's Zombie Highway: Driver's Ed [Free] being a sort of spinoff that uses some of the tech that powers ZH2.

Hands On With 'Skylanders Trap Team' - Is It Still IAP If It's Plastic?

On Friday a mysteriously large package wound up on the front door of my house, and inside was seemingly every piece of the Skylanders Trap Team universe. Having no experience with the world of Skylanders beyond marveling at how many different Skylanders (and now Disney Infinity as well) things you can buy, it's been an

An open letter to tech journalists covering iPhone 6 Plus bending issue

Apple’s entry into the big screen smartphone market has been largely successful considering the record 10 million iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus units sold in the opening weekend, however there has been one particular “issue” that seems to suggest otherwise. After a few images of a bent iPhone 6 plus surfaced online the media took immediate notice and widely reported... Read More

'Ali Spagnola's Power Hour' Makes Playing the "Power Hour" Drinking Game a Snap on iOS and Android

If you fancy yourself something of a sport-drinker, chances are you've played or at least heard of a popular drinking game called Power Hour. The idea is simple: A playlist filled with 60 different songs plays 1-minute snippets of each song. Every time the song changes, you take a shot of beer. By the end

'Tactics Maiden' Review - Now It's The Maiden's Turn

Let me cut right to the chase, for once. Tactics Maiden [Free], the latest strategy RPG from Mangobile, is basically the next game in the Kingturn RPG series. It's a new story in a new world, and there are some small differences in the gameplay systems that have a pretty big ripple effect in places,

Old Freeverse iOS Games Disappear from App Store and Users' Purchase Histories

Long-time Mac game developer Freeverse was one of the companies who ushered in gaming on the iPhone back in the device's infancy. If you walk the halls of the TouchArcade archives from the 2008-2009 era, practically every other story was featuring some type of Freeverse game. In fact, even before the App Store officially opened

Subway Planning is Surprisingly Fun in 'Mini Metro,' Coming to iOS Later This Year

When I was in the eighth grade, a city planner came to my pre-algebra class to talk about the mathematics involved in managing traffic lights. He gave a series of problems and asked us to find ways to shuffle the maximum number of cars through a given intersection quickly and safely. Even the most basic

TouchArcade Game of the Week: 'Turbo Dismount'

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

Simogo Wrapping Up 'The Sailor's Dream', Offer Vague New Teaser that Won't Spoil Any Surprises

In late July, Simogo officially announced their latest project The Sailor's Dream. There was a lot of mystique as to what The Sailor's Dream actually was, as it looked to break the traditional "video game" mold much like Simogo's previous games Year Walk and Device 6 had. In a new blog post today, Simogo says

Best iPhone and iPad Games of the Week: 9/26/14 - 'Anomaly Defenders', 'Smarter Than You', and 'WWE Supercard'

While there was one lonely game in this roundup last week (which doesn't even really make it a roundup) this week we've got three great games that everyone needs to try. Better yet, two of them won't even cost you any money to try out. Additionally, we're entering Q4 which is where all the huge

'Rapture - World Conquest' Review - Take over the World in Five Minutes

Tundra Games has opened up shop with its debut title, Rapture - World Conquest [$2.99]. With a new faceplate and some veteran talent, this game studio is one to keep an eye out for. If you asked the question: how could you make the Civ experience accessible and time-appropriate for the iOS mobile platform? This

'Smarter Than You' Review - Crushing Dreams, Telling Lies, and Shooting Arrows

The problem with knocking the ball out of the park the first time you're up at bat is that every time you approach the plate, fans expect you to do the same. Luca Redwood's 10000000 [$2.99] was an iOS gaming grand slam. As mentioned in our review, the game ticked off every checkbox that makes

'Anomaly Defenders' Review - Oh, How the Tables Have Turned

I admit that I'm coming into this Anomaly Defenders [$4.99] with a bit of bias because I've played each of the Anomaly games. I liked the games, but I'm hardly a raving fanatic for the series. But still, it's hard not to play this and think that this is kind of fan service for people

'Ninja Raft' Review - These Towers are Taking a Trip Downriver

I love tower defense games. I can totally understand the sentiment that as a genre, its a little played out though. Right Pedal Studios' newest title, Ninja Raft [$2.99], has an eye out to avoid some of the most common pitfalls many TD games make. With a focus on active gameplay and an adventurous setting,

Forget Racing Around a Track, Upcoming 'Torque Burnout' is All About Doing Donuts

Automobile racing is a long-standing, highly-revered sport all across the globe. It's also much more complex than most people give it credit for. Knowing every square inch of a racetrack, scouting the abilities of your opponents, building your stamina up to endure hours upon hours of nonstop driving, and having nerves of steel to speed

FDG's Tower Defense Title 'Crystal Siege' Still Alive and Kicking, Heading to iPad in Q4 this Year

Back at GDC 2013, I sat down with FDG Entertainment to check out their upcoming tower defense title Crystal Siege, and it looked really good. Whereas many tower defense games task you with setting up your defenses and then just sitting back and watching as the creeps roll in, Crystal Siege is going for a

Upcoming 'Drone: Shadow Strike' Joins the Death From Above Section on the App Store

If Zombie Gunship [Free] and Gunner Z [Free] weren't enough to whet your death from above whistle, or you're just super tired of killing zombies, the upcoming Drone: Shadow Strike might be the game for you. It'll be available in early October, and features 270 challenges to complete, loads of weapons to use, and all

'Angry Birds Transformers' Soft Launch Rolls Out in New Zealand

Angry Birds Transformers, the crossover between everyone's favorite malcontent avian creatures and everyone's favorite morphing robot franchise, has been teased in the past months, but now we know when the game is coming, and what it's going to play like – and oh yeah, it's soft-launched as well. And it's not just a standard Angry

'Inklewriter' is a Free Gamebook Creator from the Studio Behind '80 Days' and 'Sorcery!'

The internet is sometimes an exhaustingly terrible place, but one of its redeeming qualities (for our purposes, at least) is that it's made making video games easier than ever. Another tool of this democratization might be inklewriter, a suite of interactive fiction tools developed by Inkle Studios. Inkle, you'll recall, are the dudes responsible for
