TouchArcade Game of the Week: 'You Must Build A Boat'

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 - 6/5/15 - 'You Must Build a Boat', 'Vietnam '65' and 'Sproggiwood'

There were a lot of great games this week, but if you're not already well on your way of building a boat... What in the world are you doing? You must build a boat. You don't maybe need to build a boat, or could build a boat if you felt like it. No, you must

Yes, I Still Think that 'XCOM 2' Will Eventually Come to iOS

We wrote a few days ago that Firaxis announced XCOM 2 but quickly burned the dreams of many gamers by clarifying that the game will only come out on Windows, Mac OS, and Linux. Lead Producer, Garth DeAngelis, and Creative Director, Jake Solomon, have clarified the thinking that spurred Firaxis to surprise everyone. While the

'This War of Mine' Coming to iOS and Android in July, New Interactive Trailer Released

In March of last year, Anomaly developer 11-bit Studios announced This War of Mine, a game about war from the perspective of the civilians who are caught up in the middle. It appeared to be an extremely somber but refreshing look at war, which in the world of video games is more often than not

'Sling Kong' is the Next Game from 'Checkpoint Champion' Developers Protostar

One of my unexpected favorites of 2014 was Checkpoint Champion [Free], as Protostar nailed pretty much every aspect of their game from top to bottom, earning a five-star review from me. The two-person Australian team has been hard at work on their next game, Sling Kong, and it's looking fun. You'll be slinging cute little

Video Tour of Everything New in Minecraft: Pocket Edition 0.11 Update

There’s a lot of new stuff to take in with the Minecraft: Pocket Edition 0.11 update, and thankfully AppSpy has a handy video run-down of what to look for. The post Video Tour of Everything New in Minecraft: Pocket Edition 0.11 Update...Show More Summary

'One More Dash' Review - Disc Divin'

As a casual fan of developer SMG’s other games, One More Dash [Free] was one of the first things I downloaded this week. I played a few rounds, and it seemed pretty good. Alas, there were a lot of other games to potentially review, and it fell by the wayside. As usual, some of them

NimbleBit Revamping the 'Capitals' Lives System in Next Update

Capitals [Free] from NimbleBit has rustled a few jimmies with its lives system and its particular implementation. At the moment, you spend a life whenever a game starts up, with lives recharging over time. It's a system that makes sense to me, but it's not the most intuitive one, and has cuased a lot of

'Vietnam '65' Review - The Rhythm of War Has Never Felt So Rewarding

"The line between disorder and order lies in logistics..." -Sun Tzu. It's hard to find a word that evokes as many connotations of hell, destruction, anger, and failure as the word "Vietnam" does for the collective American psyche. The Vietnam War was a war like no other - and that includes the current conflicts. For

The Frankenstein Wars – Ring In Christmas With The Undead

I’m certainly as much a fan of zombie games as the next guy, but there are other undead specimens that are just as cool and often tend to go virtually unnoticed.  The upcoming game The Frankenstein Wars takes the notion that someone has managed to harness the secrets of Dr. Frankenstein and create an army … Read more

Classic PC Game 'Terminal Velocity' Gets Surprise iOS Version

Oh hey, here's a cool little surprise. Classic PC game Terminal Velocity [$2.99] has – as you can tell by that little price tag there – been ported to iOS. The port was done by Mark Randel, co-founder of Terminal Reality, the game's original developer. The studio closed down in 2013, but Randel ported the

Lonnie Plays ‘Wild Horse Simulator’

What’s better than a horse simulator? A wild horse simulator, of course. There’s a game about that very thing, and Lonnie has made a video about it. Check it out above. The post Lonnie Plays ‘Wild Horse Simulator’ appeared first on Slide to Play. More about Wild Horse Simulator » The post Lonnie Plays ‘Wild Horse Simulator’ is from Slide To Play via YouTube.

Dual-Stick Shooter 'Trigonarium' Gets MFi Controller Support and New Modes

One of my favorite dual-stick shooters, at least before Geometry Wars 3 [$4.99] came out, has been Trigonarium [$1.99]. And really, the game still holds up pretty well on its own merits. And the game has been updated with some new stuff, including one vital feature: MFi controller support. Yes, you can now play this

Check Out 'Z-Exemplar', a Side-Scrolling Shoot 'em Up with ZX Spectrum Visuals

I love when developers take inspiration from older consoles and try to craft a new game with that console in mind. For example, Yacht Club Games' Shovel Knight for the 3DS absolutely feels like it could have been a genuine NES game back in the late '80s or early '90s. Or the sadly-no-longer-available-for-iOS Dark Void

'Star Wars: Uprising' is an Upcoming RPG from Kabam Taking Place Before 'The Force Awakens'

Disney and Kabam have just released the first details and a teaser trailer for a new Star Wars game that's coming to mobile later this year: Star Wars: Uprising. Being made at the Kabam RPG Studio in San Francisco, the one that made Spirit Lords [Free], this is sounding like an action-RPG where you can

'Hearthstone' Will Soon Have $9.99 Purely Cosmetic Hero Skins

Think you've spent too much money on Hearthstone [Free] already? Well, strap in for this one- Blizzard just announced that they're quickly adding cosmetic skins to the mix of things you can buy in game. They'll run $9.99, and when you unlock one it'll replace your existing hero portrait at the bottom of the playing

Butterscotch Shenanigans Reveal Impressive 'Crashlands' Campaign Modding System

The fine folks at Butterscotch Shenanigans do a podcast called Coffee with Butterscotch that covers the latest happenings around them and their games. The brothers Sam, Seth, and Adam Coster all have gloriously gravelly voices, so it's quite the pleasing listen. It's like your ears are being given a deep massage. And if you think

You Can Stop Asking About It Now: 'Hitman Sniper' Has Finally Launched in the App Store

We didn't know exactly when, but early yesterday we learned that Square Enix's perpetually soft-launched sniper-centric take on the Hitman franchise would be coming today. As promised, Hitman Sniper [$4.99] has finally, at long last, for really realsies been released to the App Store. Seriously! We last took a look at Hitman Sniper during last

'You Must Build A Boat' Review - You Must Buy This Game

To tell you the truth, friends, I'm actually pretty busy working on something today. That said, I was asked to come and write something for all of you about the new follow-up to Luca Redwood's 10000000 [$2.99]. It's called You Must Build A Boat [$2.99], and it's every bit as compelling as the first game.
