The TouchArcade App [Free] has been out for a couple weeks now, and it seems like everyone is really digging it. Currently we're working on a quick 1.1 update which will address some tweaks, fixes, and suggestions that have been posted in our forums. After that, it's full-steam ahead on releasing a universal update. Spoilers: I've already got a beta version of it on my iPad, and it's going to be really nice.
But anyway, one of the best features you might not be using in the TouchArcade app is setting up watch lists to stay on top of upcoming games we've posted about. Flipping the little binoculars switch on these games will add them to your watch list, and you'll be notified when we post additional articles on them as well as when they're actually released. Going back through historical stories to fill up your watch list is a bit of a hassle, so here's a list of games I'm looking forward to that you could think about adding.
All you've got to do is tap each link, and then flip the binocular toggle on top:
Audiosuft Air - The Audiosurf series of games were a huge hit on the PC, and it seems like a natural fit on the iPhone. It's currently scheduled to be released sometime this year.
Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition - If you listen to the podcast, you'll know we're always going on about how much we want old school RPGs on our iPads, and there's few finer old school RPGs than Baldur's Gate- Especially a totally touch-centric port.
Bladeslinger - A "western-themed Infinity Blade" as it's known around my house. The game has been delayed like crazy, but last we heard is still supposed to be released this month.
Defender Chronicles II - The original Defender Chronicles was a huge hit in our community, so naturally, folks are incredibly excited about the upcoming sequel. (Including me, I can't wait.)
Drifter - Space trading games and me go together like peas and carrots. Drifter is looking really promising.
Galactic Keep - I feel like Gilded Skull Games has been teasing us with this game for eternity, and last we heard, it's still coming. I'm still loving the art style and dice-centric gameplay ideas.
Infinity Blade Dungeons - It's the new Infinity Blade, there's no way this game won't be huge, especially with the recent release of Diablo III and Dungeons' dungeon crawling gameplay.
Linux Tycoon - There have been tons of "tycoon" style games released over the years, but none are as delightfully nerdy as Linux Tycoon. Last we heard, it's coming very soon.
Penny Arcade On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness Episode Three - Sadly, I don't hold out much hope for the first two episodes, but I'm more than happy for the third installment to be hitting iOS devices.
Pocket Heroes - Dungeons and Dragons combined with Words With Friends style asynchronous multiplayer? That "Take My Money" meme is totally appropriate here.
RealMyst - I'm still blown away that this exists. 20-ish years ago, my computer could barely play the pre-rendered version of Myst. Soon we'll be playing it rendered in real time on our phones.
Star Command - Kairosoft-style simulation combined with a gloriously Star-Trek-y setting. They've also released the best trailer I've seen recently, which is embedded above.
The Other Brothers - An adventure game with platforming elements and some really awesome pixel art. We can't wait.
