Out Now: 'Hodappy Bird', 'Hitman GO', 'Unpossible', 'Yomi', 'Rogue Heroes' and More

It's Wednesday evening, which means a whole batch of new iOS games have just hit the US App Store. Normally I might mention a few of the games out of this week's selection that have caught my interest, but honestly, what's the point? Hodappy Bird is out today, and it's poised to change the face of gaming as we know it, rendering other games null and void in its wake. Oh, some game called Hearthstone came out today too. It's by some hobbyist developer named… Hurricane? Snow Storm? Something like that. Anyway, you might want to check that out too, I heard it's pretty good or whatever...

Freebie Alert: 'Horn' Now Free for the First Time Ever

Phosphor Games' action adventure game Horn [Free] is now free for the first time ever. Launched way back in 2012, Horn was a fantastic Infinity Blade-like experience that offered some impressive visuals as well as an interesting world to explore. There was even a soundtrack composed by Austin Wintory, the composer of Journey. ..

Coming Tonight: 'Hodappy Bird', 'Unpossible' 'Hitman Go', and a Bunch of Other Games That Aren't 'Hodappy Bird'

All of the Ron Paul .gifs in the world can't begin to explain just how amazing it is that Hodappy Bird is finally upon us. The game that is so hot it only got approved by Apple after we added an on-launch warning screen is here. Oh, and a bunch of other stuff too like Acceleroto's Unpossible which has been getting a ridiculous amount of traction in our upcoming games forum since it was originally announced...

TouchArcade Game of the Week: 'Fly Catbug Fly!'

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 in a review, the game with the best graphics, or really any other quantifiable "best" thing. Instead, it's more just us picking out the single game out of the week's releases that we think is the most noteworthy, surprising, interesting, or really any other hard to describe quality that makes it worth having if you were just going to pick up one...

Out Now: 'Wind-up Knight 2', 'RBI Baseball 14', 'Groundskeeper2', 'Robots Love Ice Cream', 'Dungeon Quest' and More

It's new iOS game time, and it's actually a pretty fantastic week if you enjoy good video games. The long-awaited return of RBI Baseball offers throwback arcadey baseball gaming exactly as promised, Blackmoor is an action platformer with personality in spades, and Wind-up Knight 2 is the sequel to one of my all-time favorites. And that's just a sampling, there's tons of other interesting stuff in the list below. Also, Family Guy and Trials Frontier are supposed to be out today, but haven't hit the US App Store yet, so we'll keep our eye on that. Eli streamed many of these titles earlier today, so be sure to check out those vids as well as the forum links below to see what's up with today's batch of new releases...

Freebie Alert: 'Warhammer Quest' Goes Free for the First Time

Rodeo Games' excellent top-down strategy title Warhammer Quest [Free] has just gone free for the first time since its release almost a year ago. Warhammer Quest takes the same mechanics of Rodeo's previous Hunters games and sets it in Game Workshops' expansive Warhammer universe. We really loved the game in our review upon release, but Warhammer Quest has been updated and expanded significantly since then. There was a major update released this past October, followed by another one in December...

FOX is Issuing Copyright Claims, Blocking Videos, and Closing Twitch Channels of Anyone Playing 'Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff'

Earlier today, we assumed FOX soft launched the upcoming Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff. Folks on our forums, as they always do, downloaded the game, and started posting impressions and videos. Instead of embracing this sort of community activity, FOX apparently decided to go totally nuclear, shutting down absolutely everything they could that had to do with the game being posted anywhere...

TouchArcade Game of the Week: 'Monument Valley'

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 in a review, the game with the best graphics, or really any other quantifiable "best" thing.

Freebie Alert: 'Flying Hamster' and 'SunFlowers' Both Updated for Widescreen and Currently Free

I'm a big, big fan of shoot 'em ups, and one of my favorites is Game Atelier's Flying Hamster [Free / Free (HD)]. It's a good shooter in its own right, with tight controls, tons of enemies, cool power-ups and epic boss fights, but what really puts it over the top for me is its sheer absurdity. Seriously, chickens laying explosive golden eggs, cats getting wasted off of "root beer" and vomiting, and cows shooting milk at you from their udders like a mini-gun are the norm, and that's just in the first level...

Out Now: 'FTL: Faster Than Light', 'Monument Valley', 'Warhammer 40K: Storm of Vengeance', 'Word Explorer' and More

It's a pretty huge night of new releases, with the highly-anticipated arrival of critically-acclaimed PC title FTL: Faster Than Light on the iPad, as well as the stunning abstract puzzle game Monument Valley and a brand new Warhammer 40K game with Storm of Vengeance. If that wasn't enough, Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft soft-launched in select countries today, which means some of you out there are playing it already and the rest of the world shouldn't have to wait too much longer. Eli streamed many of tonight's releases earlier today, so be sure to check those out as well as the forum links below to get impressions of all the new games...

Coming Tonight: 'FTL', 'Monument Valley', 'Warhammer 40K: Storm of Vengeance' and More

Awesome. It's Wednesday again, and while the list of games on the New Zealand store that are scheduled to hit there US market at 11:00 PM Eastern tonight is looking a little slim, there's some great stuff in here… And it's pretty early, so it's always possible more stuff leaks out throughout the day. A lot of these very much are premium games with premium price tags, so let's hope that everyone who was mad about news this week that gamers prefer free games with ads put their money where their mouth is and sends these soaring up the charts!..

Best iPhone and iPad Games of March 2014

April is shaping up to be an amazing month for iOS gaming, but March was really awesome and filled with games we'd been anticipating forever as well as a few surprises. March was host to GDC, so things sort of slowed down during that time, but, whatever. There are still were ton of great games to check out regardless...

TouchArcade Game of the Week: 'Barcode Kingdom'

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 in a review, the game with the best graphics, or really any other quantifiable "best" thing.
