One Man Left Launching the "Tilty-Tilty Boom Boom Bundle" on Thursday

If you haven't gotten a chance to play the Tilt to Live series yet, or have only enjoyed free versions without playing the full versions, well, Thanksgiving is going to be a pretty good day for you. Tomorrow, on November 27th, One Man Left is launching the "Tilty-Tilt Boom Boom Bundle," which is by far

New iPhone Games Coming Tonight: 'Astro Boy Flight', 'Color Ranger', 'Dwelp' and More

Before everyone goes wild on calling this a weak week, remember apps are typically "released" on a Thursday, and this Thursday is the US holiday Thanksgiving. As is customary for this time of year, there's a stupid amount of games on sale, so while there might not be a whole lot that interests you this

'Sunburn!' Review - Does it Feel Really Good to Die?

I will forever admit to being a sucker for games with pixel art, and Sunburn [$2.99] had immediate appeal to me based on that, but also thanks to its unique premise: instead of trying to save everyone, the goal is to control the jetpack-equipped astronaut captain, trying to get a bunch of stranded astronauts together,

'AwesomeBoots' is an Upcoming Game About Bopping People While Wearing Jet Boots

AwesomeBoots is a game releasing this Thursday, November 27th, that's worth getting excited for. It's an arena survival game that is kind of a combination of Toast Time [$2.99] and SlamBots [$1.99]. The protagonist of AwesomeBoots lives in a world where the government has banned boots, probably because boots now have jet propulsion systems in

'The Witcher Battle Arena' Beta Now Accepting iOS Players

The season of the mobile MOBA is finally upon us, it seems, with Vainglory [Free (HD) / Free] getting such huge showcases from Apple. Plenty of other developers have been trying to make the MOBA genre work on mobile, and one of the more interesting entrants is CD Projekt Red, creators of The Witcher series,

New Apple Ad Features Metal MOBA 'Vainglory'

The previous bar for "winning the App Store lottery" was getting featured on the App Store, then it got raised to being Editor's Choice, and now it's apparently "have Apple make a TV commercial about your game." Or, at least, that's the trail the recently released Metal-powered MOBA Vainglory [Free] is on. Check it out:

'Pocket God' Lives! "Call of Booty" Update Coming Soon!

You forgot about Pocket God [$0.99], didn't you? Sure, it has been a year since the last episode, "Apocalypse, Ow!" But that's no reason to forget about the game that made the "apps with free updates" concept a reality. Well, the app refuses to die, as Bolt Creative has announced episode 48 is coming soon,

'Ultimate Robot Fighting' Coming December 4th from Reliance Games

I make no bones about being a huge fan of Injustice: Gods Among Us [Free] on mobile, NetherRealm's pseudo-fighting-card-collecting game. Unlocking and upgrading new characters in the massive roster of fighters is actually just one gigantic grind, but it ends up being incredibly fun because the underlying fighting mechanics are so satisfying. Reliance Games, who

'Zengrams' Review - An Enjoyable Variation On The Chinese Classic

Brace yourselves, we're going to talk about some truly old-school gaming in this review. Before there was Clash Of Clans [Free], Call Of Duty, Tetris [$0.99], Super Mario Bros., or even Pong, a huge gaming craze swept the world. It was a puzzle game known to the western world as Tangrams, brought over in the

TouchArcade Game of the Week: 'Crossy Road'

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: 11/21/14 - 'Crossy Road', 'Vainglory', 'XCOM', and 'Crystal Siege'

This week it seems like we're handing out five star reviews like it's going out of style, but all of these games are great and two of them won't even cost you a penny to play, basically ever. That's pretty awesome, right? Anyway, it's probably safe to get used to weeks like this, at least

'Crystal Siege HD' for iPad Review - Tower Defense Ain't Dead Yet

Certainly, tower defense is a genre where it's difficult to really rock the boat too much, especially since the genre's evolution was accelerated by the fact that it was a great fit for mobile, and everyone and their mother decided to apply their take on the genre. But hey, the games are still pretty fun,

'XCOM: Enemy Within' Review - Killing Aliens? Check. With Huge Robots? Check. Instabuy? Check.

Sequels get a bad wrap. When you consider the benefits a prime iteration of a game or movie has going for it, its no wonder the follow up that lacks the initial reveal often disappoints. Luckily you don't have to worry about disappointment if you pick up 2k's XCOM: Enemy Within[$12.99]. Enemy Within has packed

Prepare to Die Frequently in We.R.Play's Upcoming 'Hex:99'

Pakistan-based developer We.R.Play has a pretty nifty challenging "finite runner" game coming out this Wednesday, November 26th, called Hex:99. The goal is to navigate a ball moving at high speed through a series of obstacles, dragging horizontally to move around everything that gets in the way. The game travels at high speed through futuristic environments,

Angry Mob Games Reveals Their Next Game, 'Toysburg'

Angry Mob Games is working on their first original title since Muffin Knight [$0.99 / Free], an ambitious-looking game called Toysburg will be going into beta testing soon. Players will play as a toymaker with a special power: turning kids into the toys they want to play with. This feels like the kind of concept

The fourth and final installment of Forge Reply's digital gamebook Joe Dever's Lone Wolf [$0.99] is now officially available for download, just as we learned it would be earlier this month. The new installment, titled Act 4 - Dawn Over V'taag, will run you $4.99 if purchased on its own, or if you've previously bought

'Gunbrick' Officially Unveiled from 'Icebreaker' Developer Nitrome

If you've been paying close attention to developer Nitrome on social media and teh Interwebz, you've no doubt noticed that they've been teasing a new game for some time now. Over the past couple of weeks, they've released brief teaser trailers for the game, but nothing that actually gave away what type of game it

'Crossy Road' Review - Watch Out for That Train!

What separates the great games from the good games? There's an intangible aspect of making a game feel fun to play that can be difficult to pin down when trying to describe it, and even more difficult for a developer to create. But when a developer nails it down, it's truly sublime. Crossy Road [Free]
