‘GT Racing 2: The Real Car Experience’ Guide – How to Win Without Spending Real Money

TouchArcade - 2 years ago.

As we noted in our review, Gameloft’s GT Racing 2  is a great addition to the long line of excellent full-featured racers on iOS. While its freemium underpinnings are relatively benign, there’s still plenty of opportunity to get caught in that trap of feeling the need to pay in order to advance. The purpose of this...

Editor’s Notes: A Pep Talk to New Players of ‘Hearthstone’ Discouraged by “Not Having the Good Cards”

TouchArcade - 3 hours ago. With the new Grand Tournament card expansion on the horizon, interest in Hearthstone [Free] has started to spool up from people who either haven’t played much of the game or only dabbled in it previously. One thing I’ve seen both online and in conversations with friends of mine, is a general level of overall dismay...

Well, good news, if you download the new update which hit the App Store mere moments ago you’ll be able to preorder fifty packs of Grand Tournament cards for $49.99. If you’re...

The Carter Crater: When is a Mobile Game Not a Mobile Game? When It’s ‘Race the Sun’.

TouchArcade - 7 hours ago. Race the Sun is finally releasing on mobile, months and even years after coming out on Steam and Playstation systems. It’s kind of a weird situation because, as one of our readers asked: “So it’s basically an endless runner?” I mean, yeah. That’s basically what it is. It’s a mobile game that took two years...

Protect Your Lily Pad from Pirates in HappyMagenta’s Upcoming ‘Lily of Swampville’

TouchArcade - 8 hours ago. When I think of developer HappyMagenta I think of quick-hitting high-score games with pixel art and unique mechanics. Games like Fist of Fury [Free], Snow Roll [Free] and Cube Koala [Free]. They’re masters of that type of game, but every once in a while they branch out a bit into something with a bit more...

This Week’s ‘Hearthstone’ Tavern Brawl is Now Live – It’s… Too Many Portals, or Maybe Showdown at Blackrock Mountain

TouchArcade - 9 hours ago. Well, this is kind of weird. This is normally when we’d post about the new Hearthstone [Free] Tavern Brawl being live, but it’d appear that there’s bit a bit of a SNAFU this week. Per a post on reddit, this week’s Tavern Brawl is supposed to be “Too Many Portals,” which basically mimics the Hunter...

‘Earth Vs. Balloons’ Review – And Lo The Penguins Did Suffer

TouchArcade - 9 hours ago. Thanks to the massive success of Rovio’s Angry Birds [$0.99] during the formative years of the App Store, physics-based puzzle games are probably one of the more, shall we say, over-represented genres on the App Store. At this point, I’d imagine most people have plenty of them in their purchase histories, and as a result,...

‘Champion Of The Gods’ Review – Destiny’s Child

TouchArcade - 10 hours ago. The gamebooks released by publisher Choice Of Games are a bit of a tough sell to the uninitiated. I mean, gamebooks in general are a tough sell, but many of the other gamebook publishers on the App Store put a lot of work into the stuff around the text. Whether it’s a plethora of illustrations,...

New iPhone Games Coming Tonight: ‘Race The Sun’, ‘Operation Dracula’, ‘Cube Jump’ and More

TouchArcade - 11 hours ago. These have been a strange couple of weeks on the App Store as the New Zealand game release schedule has been totally different for whatever weird reason that can’t be explained in any way other than “It’s the App Store, of course it’s crazy.” Last week we didn’t even see new games appear in New...

‘Five Nights at Freddy’s’ Creator Scott Cawthon Eloquently Addresses Legions of Haters

TouchArcade - 11 hours ago. Five Nights at Freddy’s creator Scott Cawthon is a bit of an enigma. He barely seems to do any interviews, and his public presence is basically limited to doing basic updates to his web site, I mean, he’s posted on reddit just once, and that was to get people to quit calling some pizza place...

‘Guardian Sword’ Review – A Silly and Strategic Match Three RPG

TouchArcade - 13 hours ago. It’s hard to turn any corner in the app store without bumping into a match three game clad in plate mail, wielding a sword, slinging some spells and grinding experience these days. Block Legend [$1.99], 1000000 [$2.99], Hero Emblems [$3.99], Dungeon Raid [$1.99], and even Puzzle Quest 2 [$2.99] back in the day. It’s hard...

Classic Reload – ‘Spider: The Secret Of Bryce Manor’

TouchArcade - 1 day ago. Hello, gentle readers, and welcome to the first edition of the Classic Reload, a semi-random feature where we take a look at classic games from the App Store’s past. Yes, it’s a spin-off of the RPG Reload, but let’s hope this is more Laverne & Shirley than Joanie Loves Chachi. Anyway, the idea here is...

Turn-Based Strategy Board Game ‘Warhammer: Arcane Magic’ Now Available

TouchArcade - 1 day ago. The parade of licensed Warhammer games continues unabated with the release of Warhammer: Arcane Magic [$9.99] from Turbo Tape Games, which arrived earlier today ahead of the normal weekly new game release schedule. Hey, gotta get out ahead of that whole Angry Birds 2 thing, eh? If you missed this when it was first announced...

We’re Streaming iOS Games Live on Mobcrush [Prerelease Games: Sling Kong, You Against Me, and Promo Codes for Red Game…]

TouchArcade - 1 day ago. We’re streaming live on Mobcrush right now. There’s a couple different ways you can watch the stream, and they all work equally well and it’s really just a matter of personal preference as to which method you prefer. The easiest way to watch is just watching the embedded player right here on TouchArcade. In the...

‘DUAL’ Gets Soccer-Inspired ‘Deflect’ Update This Week

TouchArcade - 1 day ago. Sebastian Gosztyla’s DUAL [Free] is a fun multi-device local multiplayer game where two people square off with their devices facing each other and either blast away at each other in competitive play or work together to destroy AI eneies in a cooperative mode. Now, the game is getting its first big update this week with...

‘Battlestation: Harbinger’ is a Spaceship Fleet Roguelike Coming in August

TouchArcade - 1 day ago. BugByte Games are hard at work on a space combat franchise called Battlestation, with the first game called Battlestation: First Contact [Free] that’s been on the App Store for a few months now, and is a pretty cool space station building and defense game. While they gear up for a big desktop entry in the...

‘To-Fu Fury’ Review – Soy Milk Ninja

TouchArcade - 1 day ago. There’s been a resurgence of games featuring tofu in the past year or so, but not all of them are necessarily worth checking out. Naturally, I gravitated towards a recent release called To-Fu Fury [$1.99], featuring piece of ninja tofu. I mean, when have ninjas ever let me down, right? While you won’t be running...

Frantic Dual-Stick Shooter ‘Trigonarium’ Gets “Final” Ultimate Update with New Levels

TouchArcade - 1 day ago. Kimmo Lahtinen’s Trigonarium [$1.99] is possibly my second-favorite dual-stick shooter this year, ahead of Xenowerk [$1.99] just in terms of this being more of a pick-up-and-play-friendly high score game, and behind Geometry Wars 3 [$4.99], because it’s Geometry Wars. It’s like being the second-most beautiful person on Earth. Anyway, I mention Trigonarium because the game...

‘Agar.io’ Review – The Amoeba Boys (and Girls)

TouchArcade - 1 day ago. It’s really tough to describe a game like Agar.io [Free]. It hearkens back to the old age of computing, back when Prodigy and CompuServe allowed users access to games at the cost of an hourly rate. There’s something soothing about the experience, and since it’s free and gets right into the action in seconds, you...
