'Magic 2015' for iPad is Now Available Worldwide

I added it in our new games roundup already, but Magic 2015 [Free (HD)] is rad enough that it deserves its own post. Following in the long line of yearly iteration in the Magic world on iPad, Magic 2015 takes everything about Magic 2014 and makes it incrementally better. It's basically the collectible card game

'Sky Tourist: Blitz Trip' Rises to the App Store Propelled by Rockets on July 10th

Three Legged Egg's Sky Tourist [$1.99] is getting a sequel this Thursday, July 10th, with Sky Tourist: Blitz Trip, a followup that will bring 60 more levels of physics-baced ascent to mobile. The game will seemingly feature similar gameplay as the original, where players move the protagonist Petey on a rope between two rockets, dragging

'OTTTD' Over the Top Tower Defense Gets a Big Update Adding Endless Mode and More

This past May, SMG Studio managed to do something with the release of OTTTD [$2.99] that few have managed before: they made me enjoy a tower defense game. For a genre that has been a staple of the iOS platform for years, there's surprisingly few tower defense games that have resonated with me, but OTTTD

'World of Tanks Blitz' Review - A Fine Addition To Wargaming's Cannon Canon

Although it's recently become something of a household name in gaming circles, Belarus-based developer Wargaming.net has been around for a while now. For the first several years, it focused on strategy games, both turn-based and real-time, and had modest success within that niche. It finally hit the big time with its release of World of

Mysterious Upcoming Adventure 'Barmark' Gets a New Trailer

Way back in January a teaser trailer for a mysterious upcoming game called Barmark caught our attention, mostly because it was so… mysterious. Billed as an adventure game with "no goals, no points and no death," the teaser for Barmark featured a really interesting art style and atmospheric soundtrack. While it looked and sounded cool,

Neil Gaiman's Adventure Game 'Wayward Manor' Hits Desktop Next Week, iOS Version to Follow

Neil Gaiman is easily one of the most popular and prolific English-language writers working today. He made his bones in comics, writing issues of Spawn and Batman before striking gold with his own series, The Sandman. After that, he moved to novels: Stardust and Coraline were both turned into films, but American Gods is probably

'Modern Combat 5' Is Still Going to Require Online Connectivity

If you had your fingers crossed given recent news that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 [$4.99] was getting an offline mode that Modern Combat 5 would be getting the same treatment... I'm sorry to disappoint. As Gameloft_Ryan points out on our forums, the game is still going to have an online connectivity requirement due to the

'Minecraft Pocket Edition' 0.90 Update Coming Thursday: Bigger and Better Worlds, Less Sheep-Punching

Minecraft: Pocket Edition [$6.99] has version 0.90 coming out this Thursday, July 10th, and they're promising two big things: infinity, and less unintentional sheep punching, along with a number of other small improvements and added features to bring the game closer and closer to the PC original. Yes, the game will now finally support infinite

TouchArcade Game of the Week: 'Monster Hunter Freedom Unite'

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

Nyjah Huston's Street League 2013 Winning Runs Recreated in 'True Skate'

Big things have been happening in the world of True Skate [Free] lately, as just last week it was announced that the phenomenal skateboard simulation game from True Axis was partnering up with Street League Skateboarding as the official mobile game of the contest series. As part of that partnership, actual courses from the Street

'Hitman GO' Gets New Airport Levels and New Game Mechanics in Latest Update

When Square Enix Montreal announced Hitman GO [$4.99] back in February, I was skeptical to say the least. Mobile hardware is pretty beefy nowadays and I had no doubt that a full-blown, "console-like" Hitman game would work just fine on iOS. So why was Hitman GO set to be a turn-based board game of all things?

Hutch's Monster Truck Racer 'MMX Racing' Now Available Worldwide

Last month, Hutch Games soft-launched their latest game MMX Racing [Free], and as of today the game has completed its soft-launch period and is now available worldwide. The easiest way to describe MMX Racing is "it's like CSR Racing with monster trucks," but there's more to it than that. You'll be drag racing against a

'The Wolf Among Us' Fifth and Final Episode "Cry Wolf" Coming to iOS on July 10th

Telltale Games has done a pretty good job of bringing out new episodes of The Wolf Among Us [$4.99] at a decent pace. I mean, if I've learned anything from their other adventure game series The Walking Dead, it can be agonizing having an episode end on a major cliffhanger and then be stuck waiting

'Monster Hunter Freedom Unite' Review - Good-bye Free Time, Hello Wildlife Slaughter

Capcom's iOS games present a truly insane roll of the dice. You've got terribly reimagined ports of classics like Mega Man X [$4.99], wonderful ports of underappreciated games like Ghost Trick [Free], ports that are maybe a bit too perfect like Street Fighter II Collection [$3.99] or the dearly departed Marvel Vs. Capcom 2, and

British Advertising Watchdog Rules that EA's 'Dungeon Keeper' Misled Consumers

This morning, the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) ruled that an e-mail ad for Electronic Arts' much-maligned Dungeon Keeper [Free] was misleading to the average consumer. Specifically, the ASA took issue with the ad's claim that Dungeon Keeper was "free," ruling that the ad didn't include crucial information about the game's in-app purchases. The ASA is

'Plague Inc.' Getting the Simian Flu from Upcoming 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' Movie

Ndemic's Plague Inc. [$0.99] has seen an overwhelming amount of support since its release in May of 2012. Numerous updates have added new content to the game at a steady pace, and the enormous success of the game has even resulted in a partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention which saw the

'Civilization Revolution 2' First Impressions Roll in From Our Forums

The biggest release of the week is undoubtely Civilization Revolution 2 [$14.99], both in overall depth/scope as well as price. We're still working on our review of the game, but in the meantime, if you're wondering whether or not Civ Rev 2 is worth the fifteen bucks, the thread in our forums is filled with

Mo' Money, Mo' MOBA: CD Projekt RED Announce 'The Witcher Battle Arena'

Yesterday CD Projekt Red, in conjunction with Fuero Games, announced The Witcher Battle Arena for iOS. As the name suggests, the new game is a multiplayer online battle arena game (MOBA), in the vein of Riot's League of Legends or Valve's Dota 2. The catch, of course, is that all of the characters are from

New 'Implosion' Trailer Emphasizes Fast Combat and Controller Support

We first caught wind of Rayark's upcoming action game Implosion in September of last year with an impressive trailer showing the game's fast-paced combat in action. The following month, Rayark released another trailer for the game, this time showing how the game actually controlled with the touchscreen. Both trailers looked fantastic and I've been really
