'Talisman' Review - Classic Boardgame gets Universal Update

I've been on a Games Workshop kick lately, and with the relatively recent universalization of Nomad Games' Talisman[$6.99], I couldn't help but scoop it up. This app has some sky high production quality with a full compliment of features including multiple view modes, full musical scoring and future content updates. I have to admit I

'Proun+' Preview: The PC Tunnel Racer Finds a Home on Mobile

There are some games where the question has to be asked: why wasn't this on iOS sooner? Joost Van Dongen's Proun+ is one of those games. Releasing on November 27th for $3.99, ported by Engine Software, it's a game that really feels like it's finally home on iPhones and iPads. The PC version is remembered

New iPhone Games Coming Tonight: 'Bitcoin Billionaire', 'Day of the Viking', The Sailor's Dream, and Tons More

After last week's admittedly fairly weak week, the fate of this week's list of new game releases lies solely in the comments. There's some truly amazing looking games in this bundle, but will someone still have the audacity to post that it's a weak week?! I checked, and the sky is still blue, so probably.

'Day of the Viking' is Adult Swim Games' Latest Title, Releasing Thursday

Adult Swim Games' latest title is coming out on Thursday, Day of the Viking. Developed by Vorax Studios, this is a castle defense game that has a touch of fast-paced action to it. Vikings are invading, because that's just what they do. Players must fire of a barrage of arrows, with a rock catapult to

Check out the Trailer for 'Subterfuge' from the Creators of 'World of Goo' and 'Flower Garden'

Ron Carmel of 2D Boy, who helped make World of Goo [appprice url="asdf"] and Little Inferno [appprice url="asdf"], is working with Noel Llopis of Flower Garden [appprice url="asdf"] and Casey's Contraptions fame (before that game became...Show More Summary

'Drop Wizard' is The Next Game From The Creators of 'Lost Yeti'

Remember the super simple yet unbelievably cute ice block sliding puzzler Lost Yeti [$1.99]? If you've got no idea what I'm talking about, head to our Lost Yeti review and bask in the glory that is getting a yeti from one side of the screen to the other. The point is, Lost Yeti was a

Stoic Studio Talks 'Banner Saga' Mobile Development and Direction of Upcoming Sequel

Bringing The Banner Saga [$9.99] to tablets gave John Watson nightmares. “This launch was even bigger to us personally than the original launch,” he explains. The Banner Saga was released for PC and Mac in January before making the jump to tablets early last month. “We’ve been working toward this for a long time. I

'Space Age' from 'The Incident' Developer Big Bucket Software Launching this Month

One of my all-time favorite iOS games is Big Bucket Software's The Incident [$0.99], a game about a working class everyman that's just trying to avoid getting crushed by random objects that for reasons unknown are falling from the sky. That old chestnut. All the way back in November of 2012, Big Bucket announced in

The 'Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare' Companion App Launched Today

If you're not paying attention to the PC/console space these days, you're missing out on the release of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Like every CoD release, it's probably going to break all sales records and all sorts of insanity like that. They're doing things a little differently this year, with people who preordered getting

Soft-Launched Upcoming MOBA 'Vainglory' Gets an iPhone Version

Back in September during the keynote presentation where Apple unveiled the new iPhone 6 models, the game they chose to demo to show off the power of the new devices as well as the power of their new Metal framework was Super Evil Megacorp's multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game Vainglory. Vainglory had been in

'Gems of War' from Original 'Puzzle Quest' Creative Lead Soft Launches in New Zealand

Is Marvel Puzzle Quest: Dark Reign [Free] not enough Puzzle Quest for you? Well, good news: 505 Games has soft-launched Gems of War in New Zealand, a puzzle-RPG that draws a heavy influence from the series that launched a thousand match-3 RPGs, and for good reason: the game is developed by an Australian studio called

'Dungelot' Developer Releases 'Lost Viking', a Mix of RPG and 'Threes!'-style Matching

Threes! [$1.99] (and 2048 [Free] for that matter) is one of the most copied game designs of the past couple of years. Thankfully, the number of straight up clones releasing has subsided, but I was always puzzled why more people didn't take the base concept and expand on it in some way. Dungelot 2 [Free]

'Card Crawl' Will Shuffle Up Some Card-Based Roguelike Gameplay Soon

Tiny Touchtales, creators of Zuki's Quest [$0.99] and One Tap RPG [$0.99], have an interesting new card-based dungeon crawler in the works, appropriately called Card Crawl. While this may sound like Card Dungeon [$3.99] which released recently, this one promises to put more of an emphasis on the Card than the Crawl. The entire game

'NOON' from 'Quell' Creators Promises a Wacky Payment Model

Fallen Tree Games, creators of Quell Memento [$2.99], have a new game coming out this week, NOON, and it's going to use a rather odd pricing model that, if followed through, might just be the perfect antidote for people who hate when apps go from paid to free with ads. NOON is about tapping to

'Puzzle to the Center of the Earth' Review - Miner Match-Thirty-Niner

There still aren't enough mining games out there in the world. Despite the resurgence of the genre on the mobile platform and recent mainstream hits like Steamworld Dig, I could probably play a new mining game every week without getting bored. There's something about digging down into the great unknown that fills a void many

King Taps London Symphony Orchestra for 'Candy Crush Soda Saga' Soundtrack

While I know full well about how people feel about King and their games around here, it's always really rad to see developers actually putting effort into the soundtracks and sound design of their game. It feels like all too often developers just hit up the various royalty free audio sites, and just pay a

'Drift'n'Drive' Review - Gotta Go Fast

Drift'n'Drive [$1.99] is quite the fun chaotic top-down racing game. I was intrigued by the game when I saw a GIF of it in action with a whopping 32-car field, and it looked like something I had to play. And it lived up to my expectations. It's very much an arcade-like experience. The cars auto-accelerate,

TouchArcade Game of the Week: 'Drift'n'Drive'

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: 10/31/14 - 'Ghost Blade', 'Sleep Attack TD', 'Super Glyph Quest' and 'Tilt to Live: Gauntlet's Revenge

Another solid week under our belts, friends. We've got a really great action game that uses swipe controls in a way that actually doesn't suck, a tower defense game that somehow manages to feel fresh, an awesome to a sequel to an already good puzzle game, and a spin-off of one of our favorite games

Halloween Update Roundup: 'Trials Frontier', 'Lion Pig', 'Jack B. Nimble' and More

Today is Halloween, and as is usual with holidays or seasonal events, there's no shortage of iOS games that have updated with special content to commemorate the occasion. There are far too many Halloween updates to list them all individually, and even Apple themselves have reserved a special Halloween section in the App Store to
