'CounterSpy' Review - Not For Your iOS Only

Multi-platform Cold War stealth game CounterSpy [$4.99] has snuck into the app store just scant weeks after it was released on it's other platforms. This is not Sony's first foray into the wonderful world of iOS. As a port of a game designed for more than one platform, you can expect production value to be

The TouchArcade Show - 171 - Unloading Airstreams

With the release of Mikey Boots we go full-on in interrogating Mike Meade about everything from relevant things about the game to his disgusting habits of eating cereal and using that same bowl for ice cream. (Actually, I'm not sure if I hit the record button yet on that nugget.) This episode is very heavy

Best iPhone and iPad Games of the Week: 9/5/14 - 'Mikey Boots' and 'Alone'

Another wild week of iOS game reviews this week, and the games that scored the highest were both titles that were highly anticipated by our community since we first caught wind of them. The Mikey games are a staple around here, especially since they were created on the TouchArcade forums. Somewhat similarly, Alone is something

'The Nightmare Cooperative' Review - Strength in Numbers

The cooperative element of Lucky Frame's new puzzle-roguelike The Nightmare Cooperative [$3.99] reveals itself after a few quick crawls through the game's tile-floored dungeon. Your party of up to four Miners, Archers, and Warriors moves as a single entity, sliding up, down, right, and left in unison with each swipe of your finger. With these

Feeling Sneaky? Then Check Out 'Stealth', a New iOS Game Inspired by 'Metal Gear Solid' and 'Tenchu'

A couple of weeks back, I ran across a thread in our upcoming games forum for a new stealth-based game simply called Stealth. The game was the product of about 18 months of work from a single developer who had one goal in mind: recreate the stealth-based gameplay of the Metal Gear Solid series on mobile

Check Out the 'Alto's Adventure' Teaser Trailer

The developers behind Alto's Adventure are doing a good job of keeping their cards close to their chest in regards to what you actually do in the game, but a snazzy web site and cool looking teaser trailer go a long way in piquing interest in a mysterious iOS game. Check out the just-released teaser

'Belial' Aims to Be The 'Symphony of the Night' for iOS

One of the coolest things about our forums, if you're not already a member, is the amount of super-early iOS games that get posted by developers in our upcoming games forum. Belial is one such game that was posted quite a while ago, but it according to their Facebook page, development really seems to be

'Mikey Boots' Review - These Boots Were Made for Speedrunning

I remember when I first saw Mikey Shorts [$0.99]. It was the GDC Touch Arcade party back in 2012, and I remember meeting Mike Meade. If I recall, I may have been the first press person to ever see the game. It certainly seemed neat, as pixelly platformers are absolutely up my alley. What I

'Angry Birds Transformers' Gets Basically the Best Trailer Ever, Launching October 15th

The mighty Angry Birds Empire announced their latest collaboration back in June, a mashup game with the Transformers brand of transforming alien robot vehicles. Not surprisingly, the game is called Angry Birds Transformers, but that initial announcement didn't provide any further details. Then during Comic-Con in July, Rovio released a visually stunning CGI trailer for

'Epic Eric' Review - Swing Your Partner Round and Round

Why did Epic Eric [$0.99]appeal to me? Because it's a game all about swinging around, which is one of my favorite gameplay mechanics, the cousin of grappling hooks, my number one favorite. I mean, it's why I was so excited by Deep Under the Sky [$2.99], those grappling hooks, and the swinging on them thereof.

Cartoon Network was demoing games at PAX Prime this past weekend, and there's a pair of particularly intriguing titles from interesting developers that are coming to iOS in the future.

Backflip Studios is Making a 'Dungeons & Dragons' Mobile Game

Over the weekend at PAX Prime, DragonVale developer Backflip Studios announced that they have a new mobile game in the works based on the Dungeons & Dragons IP. The game is currently untitled, but Backflip spoke to Polygon during PAX and did divulge a few details. The game is considered a castle defense game, but

'Dodo Master' Review - Classic Platforming isn't Extinct

I don't usually find myself speechless after playing an iOS game, but Dodo Master [$0.99 / $0.99 (HD)] has given me pause. The game is so carefully crafted, and so well planned, and so well tested that I want to be certain that each word I write about it is equally well thought out. My

Square Enix Debuts First Trailer for 'Chaos Rings III'

Earlier this month, Square Enix announced a brand new entry in their popular mobile RPG series with Chaos Rings III. Though so far the game has only been announced for Japan, we're willing to bet that a North American release is pretty darn likely. Keeping that in mind, Squeenix has debuted the first trailer for

Nitrome's 'Icebreaker: A Viking's Voyage' Goes Free as Apple's "App of the Week"

Maybe it's just everyone dumping ice water on their heads to promote charity, but Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage [Free / Free] going on sale seems awfully appropriate. And not only is it going on sale, it's completely free for a limited time as Apple's "App of the Week", likely in connection to developer Nitrome's latest

Rovio Releases Gameplay Teaser for 'Angry Birds Stella' Ahead of September 4th Launch

Back in February we learned that Rovio had a new Angry Birds game in the works called Angry Birds Stella that featured an entirely brand new and mostly female cast of birds. Rovio stated Angry Birds Stella was "all about inspiration, empowerment and other real issues, without forgetting entertainment and quirky fun." It sounded really

'Castle of Illusion' Gets a Massive Price Cut, on Sale for Just 99¢

Sega's quasi-remake of the beloved Sega Genesis game has dropped all the way down from $9.99 to $0.99. This is a bargain price for what is a console/PC game that retails for $14.99, on mobile
