Hello, gentle readers, and welcome to the RPG Reload, the weekly feature where we keep marching on, all through the night, exploring RPGs from the App Store's past. It's a little bit of revisiting, a little bit of recollecting, and a whole lot of rambling. I try to cover a broad range of RPGs, but

ClutchPlay Games' Skullduggery is heading to the App Store next Thursday, October 9th. Get it, 'heading', because it's a game where you control a skull?

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.

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

In late July, Simogo officially announced their latest project The Sailor's Dream.
