These ARE the Droids You're Looking For: Upcoming 'Star Wars Pinball' Update to Add Tables for Han Solo, C-3PO and R2-D2 and More

Zen Studios' Star Wars Pinball [$1.99] is an awesome mashup of digital pinball and George Lucas's iconic space saga, and it's set to get even more awesome with the upcoming Heroes Within table pack. Upon its original release in March of last year, Star Wars Pinball came with three tables: Empire Strikes Back, The Clone

Pixely Roguelike 'Quest of Dungeons' is Now Available

You might have noticed lately, especially if you followed our GDC coverage last week, that pixely dungeon crawlers are so hot right now. Back in January, we told you about a new one called Quest of Dungeons, which appeared to be a very straightforward roguelike with a nice sense of humor and a great look.

'Shin Megami Tensei' Review - A Genuinely Classic RPG Gets Its English Debut

We've reached a point in gaming where, at least when it comes to major franchises, there are very few great JRPGs that haven't been eventually released in English. There are no lost Final Fantasy mainline games, all the holes in Dragon Quest have been filled, and even less famous series such as Ys and Monster

'Dudeski' Review - Bend Your Knees? What Knees?

Blazing down hills on some super fly skies has never been part of my life, as I live in the flattest area in Sweden. Winter sports were always about snowball fights instead of graciously navigating between gates, or finding fresh snow to freestyle in. If however I would ever given downhill skiing a go I

GDC 2014: Watch Us Get Wrecked in 'Turbo Dismount', Upcoming Sequel to 'Stair Dismount'

One of the quirkiest and most oddly entertaining iOS games is Secret Exit's Stair Dismount [Free]. The original Stair Dismount dates all the way back to 2002, and sees you pushing a helpless crash test dummy-like character named Mr. Dismount down a flight of stairs and racking up the most damage possible to his body.

Game of GDC: 'Seabeard' by Hand Circus

We've been pretty dedicated with our various game of the week choices over the months since we've started the column, but we're doing something a little different this week since 98% of our attention went towards games we saw at GDC. So, here's the Game of GDC. Weirder yet, since most of the games we've

GDC 2014: 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' is Gameloft's Next Game

To coincide with the movie of the same title launching around the same time is Gameloft's Captain America: The Winter Soldier. It's another comic book beat 'em up, set in the Captain America universe (obviously) but the incredible part is just how much better it looks than Gameloft's previous similar games. Full shadows, reflections, and

GDC 2014: Rocketcat's 'Wayward Souls' Might Actually, Finally Be Close to Finished (and It Looks Amazing)

Rocketcat Games make some of my favorite iOS titles, and ever since they announced a spinoff to their action RPG Mage Gauntlet [$2.99] at last year's GDC, I've been dying to get my hands on a finished version. However, it's been a longer development cycle than Rocketcat expected, and it's seen several versions and name

GDC 2014: 'Bean's Quest 2: Bean Dreams' is Looking Better than Ever

One of the iOS platform's greatest platformers is Bean's Quest [$2.99], released way back in July of 2011 from developer Kumobius. In case you aren't familiar, it's a platformer about a perpetually bouncing bean and, along with goals like collecting all items in a level and searching out a hidden axolotl, the main goal was

GDC 2014: A Look at IGF Nominated 'Symmetrain', a Mashup of Endless Runner and… Spot the Difference?

Last night we had a small gathering for developer and fans of TouchArcade to come hand out and shoot the breeze, and one game that was getting a lot of buzz as it made its way around the crowd is Daniel Goffin's Symmetrain [$0.99]. While not exactly a new game–it was released back in late

GDC 2014: 'Pixel Powers' Is A "Super" Version of 'Pixel People'

Pixel People came out early last year, and we couldn't get enough of it in our review. If you loved Pixel People, the pseudo-sequel of sorts, Pixel Powers is something you can't miss. Instead of building a city, you're saving a city with a whole host of super heroes that you build up. Check out

GDC 2014: 'Seabeard' By Hand Circus Looks Awesome

Not long ago we posted the announcement trailer of Seabeard, a new game from the developers of Rolando developed in partnership with Backflip Studios. Back then, we really didn't know what you do in the game as it seemed like you do everything. Well, after a brief demo from Hand Circus's own Simon Oliver, it

GDC 2014: 'Dice Soccer League' Joins The Upcoming World Cup Games

It seems like everyone with an upcoming soccer game is racing to release titles prior to the start of the World Cup, and LambdaMu Games is no different. We reviewed the original Dice Soccer all the way back in 2011, and it seems that the sequel is a worthy upgrade in basically every way imaginable.

iOS 7.1 jailbroken but only on the iPhone 4

(Credit: James Martin/CNET) An enterprising hacker has jailbroken iOS 7.1, at least as seen on a YouTube video. Posted by self-dubbed "insane programmer" winocm, the silent video shows a jailbroken iPhone 4 powering up in untethered mode. Show More Summary

'Block Fortress: War' Review - The Blocks Are Back

The original Block Fortress [$1.99], from the good folks at Foursaken Media, was one of the roughly 86 million Minecraft [$6.99]-inspired games that came in the wake of its success. More importantly, it was one of the roughly five Minecraft-inspired games that weren't awful. It was a really cool fusion of FPS, construction, and base

Crytek's Free to Play Arena Shooter 'The Collectables' is Now Available

Crytek's latest mobile effort, The Collectables [Free] which was unveiled on the sly back at WWDC last year before being officially announced this past December, has exited its soft-launch period and is now widely available. Here's the brief trailer that was released during the announcement in December, so you can get a quick look at

GDC 2014: A Quick Look at 'X-Men: Battle of the Atom'

Already available on the App Store, X-Men: Battle of the Atom [Free] is one of the legit countless free to play collectable card games out there. However, it's got some neat features that might make it worth a second look if you passed it up when it launched in mid-January. Namely, massive player versus player

GDC 2014: Hands-on with Tiger Style's 'Spider: Rite of the Shrouded Moon'

With such hits as Spider: The Secret of Bryce Manor and Waking Mars, Tiger Style are easily one of my favorite iOS developers. That's why it was such a big deal this past October when they revealed a new project through a cryptic teaser site that alluded to something called Blackbird Estate. About a month
