The TouchArcade Show – 182 – Earlier Than Usual

TouchArcade - 16 hours ago. We recorded a bit earlier than we usually do today, which means it’s just me and Jared as Mike fell asleep in a pile of Ritz crackers. That’s alright though, as we have a great conversation about side scrolling racing games, iOS controllers, and a bunch of other cool stuff. Don’t forget to shoot us...

TouchArcade Game of the Week: ‘Crossy Road’

TouchArcade - 16 hours ago. 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 of the Week: 11/21/14 – ‘Crossy Road’, ‘Vainglory’, ‘XCOM’, and ‘Crystal Siege’

TouchArcade - 17 hours ago. This week it seems like we’re handing out five star reviews like it’s going out of style, but all of these games are great and two of them won’t even cost you a penny to play, basically ever. That’s pretty awesome, right? Anyway, it’s probably safe to get used to weeks like this, at least...

‘Crystal Siege HD’ for iPad Review – Tower Defense Ain’t Dead Yet

TouchArcade - 17 hours ago. Certainly, tower defense is a genre where it’s difficult to really rock the boat too much, especially since the genre’s evolution was accelerated by the fact that it was a great fit for mobile, and everyone and their mother decided to apply their take on the genre. But hey, the games are still pretty fun,...

‘XCOM: Enemy Within’ Review – Killing Aliens? Check. With Huge Robots? Check. Instabuy? Check.

TouchArcade - 18 hours ago. Sequels get a bad wrap. When you consider the benefits a prime iteration of a game or movie has going for it, its no wonder the follow up that lacks the initial reveal often disappoints. Luckily you don’t have to worry about disappointment if you pick up 2k’s XCOM: Enemy Within[$12.99]. Enemy Within has packed...

‘Game Dev Story’ Gets First New Update in More than 3 Years, Fixes Resolution on New iPhones

TouchArcade - 18 hours ago. One of the true App Store classics is Kairosoft’s 2010 release of Game Dev Story [$4.99], which was pretty much just a simple port of a game that they originally released on PC in Japan in the late ’90s. It wasn’t the prettiest game, nor did it have any fancy features that took advantage of...

The goal is to navigate a ball moving at high speed through a series of obstacles, dragging horizontally to move around everything that gets in the way. The game travels at high speed through futuristic environments,...

‘Gunbrick’ Officially Unveiled from ‘Icebreaker’ Developer Nitrome

TouchArcade - 24 hours ago. If you’ve been paying close attention to developer Nitrome on social media and teh Interwebz, you’ve no doubt noticed that they’ve been teasing a new game for some time now.

‘Necklace Of Skulls’ Review – A Unique Adventure Through Mayan Myths

TouchArcade - 1 day ago. Gamebook developer Cubus Games is only on their third swing at the genre, but they’ve already become a player worth paying attention to in that sphere.

‘Wolfenstein 3D Classic’ Returns to the App Store with iOS 8 and Widescreen Support

TouchArcade - 1 day ago. A little more than a year ago, id Software updated two of their old iOS ports–Doom Classic and Rage HD– with 4-inch widescreen support and support for Apple’s then-new iOS 7 software. Both games had quietly disappeared from the App Store at least a month prior to the updates, which was scary for me as...

Out Now Part 2: ‘Call of Duty: Heroes’, ‘ANNO: Build an Empire’, ‘Gems of War’, ‘NinJump Dash’, ‘Creature Academy’ and More

TouchArcade - 1 day ago. For whatever reason, there were quite a few games that didn’t release in time for our weekly roundup. Some games simply released at an off time, and a lot are games that were previously soft-launched that are now available worldwide. So we figured hey, why not round them all up. We already covered the release...
