I love surprises, especially when they have to do with unexpected game releases, and this one today ranks pretty much at the top of my "great surprises of the year" list. Transistor [$9.99], the great A/RPG from Supergiant Games, has just appeared on the App Store this morning. I had been waiting for this game to
We're here at WWDC in San Francisco hustling up any game developers we come across trying to get hot scoops on new iOS games. Unfortunately, there hasn't been a whole lot to see so far, and some of the stuff we have seen has been in a "not ready for public viewing" kind of state.
Trigger Fist is a pretty great shooter that we liked quite a bit when it launched. Watch as Lonnie gives it a go in the video above.

Even in the days of free-to-play, there's still something cool about a paid game going free, that whole factor of a game that you once had to pay money for being available for no cost whatsoever. Even better is when they're free for the first time – you don't know if you'll ever get a
Whitaker Trebella, indie composer and developer known for Polymer [$1.99 / Free] and Pivvot [$2.99], is finally getting ready to release his next game, Piloteer. He's finally announced the release date, June 25th, and released a teaser trailer showing off a bit of the game. It's been in the works for a while – it
Don't you hate when this happens to you? You're sitting in your attic, trying to read a book on cats, and suddenly, cats are jumping in your lap. But it's not just one cat, it's an onslaught of cats. So you have to build a fort to keep all the cats out. That's the basic
In what will be surprising news to anyone who's played the emotionally-charged Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, its publisher, 505 Games, has announced today that the re-release edition of the game will also be coming to iOS and Android at some point during the holiday season. The re-release will feature a director's commentary, the
DomiNations [Free], the raiding strategy game about building up eras of civilizations throughout history, developed by the revived Big Huge Games and published by Nexon M, has been doing rather well in the charts, hanging around the 50 grossing apps on iOS. With the game doing well, that means new content is coming to it,
The complicated clicker game CivCrafter [Free] is getting a big update on June 25th that brings some new tweaks and features to the game. Clan features are getting a bcouple of new features: Clan Towers let you build giant towers with your fellow clan members. These will be built solely through tapping and not through
According to AppSpy’s review of the game, Radical Rappelling is a great deal of addictive fun, even if the IAPs get a bit pushy at times.

I am extremely conflicted about Hitman: Sniper [$4.99]. It's a great game, a legitimately fantastic mobile title. It's a game that takes a simple premise of sniping and turns it into a complex puzzle game, where you have to learn how your weapons and abilities work to piece together sequences of actions to get the
This top-down stealth game about robbing stuff is out, and Lonnie gives it a go to see if it’s any good. Find out in the video above.

Umbrella is responsible for one of my favorite fast-reaction games with Boom Dots [Free], and their next game is looking like Q-Bert meets Crossy Road [Free]: Down the Mountain. You'll be hoping a cubic creature down isometric levels, hopping diagonally from block to block, trying to stay alive and not get blown up, or spiked
At WWDC on Monday, June 8th, 2015, Apple announced the latest set of winners for their coveted Apple Design Awards. These signify some of the top apps and games on the App Store of the past year, though Apple isn't afraid to give very recent releases big awards. Leo's Fortune [$4.99] came out in May
King's got their formula down pat by now. First, take a puzzle concept that has shown some success in the past, be it Bejeweled, Peggle [$0.99], Puzzle Bobble, or anything else. If it's not already stage-based, change it so that it is. Then dial up the difficulty gradually, spiking it now and then to tempt
There isn't an overabundance of flight simulators in the mobile market. They're generally much more arduous tasks to develop -- at least, more intricate than runners and puzzle games. Despite that, Martian Monkey was up to the task a few years back with Alpha Squadron, and now, with Edge Of Oblivion: Alpha Squadron 2 [$4.99].
After releasing SBK: The Official Mobile Game last year, Digital Tales is bringing SuperBikes back to the iOS later this month with the upcoming SBK15 Official Mobile Game (an incredibly-imaginative title, I have to say). Last year's version has mostly five star reviews on the App Store and many excited reviewers, which bodes well for this
Poor old Nubs. He had defied the odds of the modern economy and purchased a nice house with a great view and plenty of land to build on. Sure, the land taxes were a bit tough to manage each year when tax season came around, but he had things sorted out nicely for the most
It's been a while since we've heard the name SimCity associated with anything but the catastrophe that was the recent SimCity's launch on PC. However, while on PC the franchise might be all but dead, on mobile it's thriving, at least according to EA Mobile's Vice President, Jason Willig. In a recent interview, Willig claimed that
A retro-style beat-’em-up, Kung Fury has you hit the streets and then hit a bunch of thugs repeatedly on a screen that looks like a CRT television. Watch Lonnie give the game a shot above.
