Best iPhone and iPad Games of the Week: 9/12/14 - 'Goblin Sword', 'The Journey Down', 'Battle Riders', and 'Gemini Strike'

If all that happened this week was the release of the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus, that'd be pretty rad in itself. If all that happened was the unveiling of the Apple Watch, same story, would still have been a great week. The fact that we've got all that and great iPhone games?

'Goblin Sword' Review - It's Still Rock and Roll to Me

My thumbs are feelin pretty raw after playing Goblin Sword[$0.99]. As a guy that grew up playing platformers in the late 80's/early 90's I don't think I can give higher praise for a game workin' it's tail off to give that old feeling back. Unforgiving yet short levels give this game a mobile focus while

Record Breaking iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus Preorders Made For a Pretty Crazy Night

It's hard to not just be dumbfounded by the rapid rise of the iPhone. 2007 wasn't that long ago, and it's nuts to look back to when the iPhone was the $500 phone Steve Ballmer famously laughed at to causing a predictable yearly fervor where everyone has to have one. If you set your alarm

First Trailer Released for Foursaken's "Spelunky Meets Match-3" Game 'Puzzle to the Center of the Earth'

Earlier this month Foursaken media announced that they have a new game in the works called Puzzle to the Center of the Earth, which they described as Spelunky meets match-3.

Hands-On Video and Impressions of the MOGA Rebel MFi Controller

Yesterday, MOGA officially unveiled their first full-sized MFi controller for iOS devices, the MOGA Rebel.

I'll be saving most of my thoughts for a full review in

Check Out 'The Sleeping Prince' Projection Mapping Trailer

I don't know what it is with Tilting Point and their whole "We must outdo absolutely everyone when it comes to trailer production values" thing, but, hey, why not. You may remember the Leo's Fortune Rube Goldberg machine trailer (which is now sporting over 1.5m views, what the hell) as being pretty rad, and the

New iPhone Games Out Now: 'Dragon Quest I', 'Fotonica', 'Goblin Sword', 'Phantom Rift', 'Spider-Man Unlimited' and More

Strap in boys, it's Wednesday night, and Jared has been busy doing mysterious things that could potentially pertain to iOS games in San Francisco all day. It's OK though, I've replaced him with a drinking bird on a keyboard... Who managed to really mess stuff up. But, hey, whatever. There's still a bunch of awesome

'MUJO' Review - A Fresh Take on Match Three

If Percy Jackson found himself in the Paper Mario universe, he might be playing MUJO[$1.99]. Finally seeing worldwide release, MUJO has had about a month in soft release to tighten up it's loose ends. Audio and visuals are clean and enjoyable, and while I never thought I would describe fighting a medusa with cheery music

'Etherlords' Review - Free to Play, and Play, and Play...

I have a very simple wish. I don't think I'm asking for all that much. I want Etherlords [Free] to be the vanguard for the death of energy systems in free-to-play RPGs. We've seen a rise in these kinds of games that make game design purists recoil in horror – ruled by automated battle systems

'Max Gentlemen' Review - Beers, Ripped Shirts, and Lots of Hats

Games built around comedy are few and far between.

Enter Max Gentlemen [Free] -- a game that will make

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

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 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
