Coming Tonight: '2-bit Cowboy', 'Warhammer 40,000: Carnage', 'dEXTRIS' and More

It's the best day of the week for iOS gamers, and there's a whole heck of a lot of new games coming out tonight. Like all weeks, these games will be available at 11:00 PM Eastern for those of us who use the US App Store, or significantly earlier if you're in an iTunes region that's east of us. As always, this is just the first glimpse of games that are popping up, and we'll update this post as more forum threads get posted for games people find...

TouchArcade Game of the Week: 'Metal Slug Defense'

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...

Best iPhone and iPad Games of April 2014

If there was one word to sum up the games we reviewed in April it'd just be wow. Seven five star games in all, and I'd say each one is an absolute must have. Additionally, I think it's pretty safe to say the slow start to 2014 is now officially over...

Out Now: 'Botanicula', 'Zombie Gunship Arcade', 'Intake', 'Dwarven Den', 'Bridge Constructor Medieval', 'Gear Jack Black Hole' and More

Welcome to another Wednesday night and another huge batch of new iOS games. There's tons of cool looking stuff coming out tonight, and as always, Eli streamed many of them on our Twitch.tv channel earlier today. If you missed the live stream, you can find an archive video of it in our previous Coming Tonight post. Also as always, there are all the appropriate forum links and App Store links below, so make use of the information provided and go nuts downloading some new games!..

Coming Tonight: 'Botanicula', 'Bridge Constructor Medieval', 'Republique' Episode 2 and More

Well, this Wednesday is starting off with a bang. This is easily the biggest release list we've had posted this early in quite some time. As usual, all of these games should hit the US App Store at 11:00 PM Eastern, or earlier for you if you live in an iTunes region in Europe, Asia, or somewhere else east of us...

Hands-On Preview: 'Tony Hawk's Shred Session' - Played by Tony Hawk Himself

Yesterday I was lucky enough to be invited by Tony Hawk to come visit his HQ in San Marcos, CA to check out the iPhone game he has been working on, Tony Hawk's Shred Session. If you followed gamer and skater culture in the late 90's, few series are as sacred as the Tony Hawk Pro Skater games as they're basically singlehandedly responsible for kickstarting skateboarding games as a genre that are actually fun and feel good to play. Following Tony Hawk Pro Skater in 1999, Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2 was arguably even better, and the rest is history. The Tony Hawk games got a little crazy in their later years with the Jackass-era influenced Underground games and titles like Ride which were released at the height of the Guitar Hero-esque "Every Game Must Have a Crazy Accessory" mentality...

TouchArcade Game of the Week: 'Wayward Souls'

Out Now: 'Wayward Souls', 'Leo's Fortune', 'Soccer Rally 2', 'Horde of Heroes', 'Third Eye Crime', 'Tiny Dice Dungeon' and More

Here we go folks, it's Wednesday night and that means a ton of new games have just arrived in the US App Store. My own personal most highly-anticipated game, Wayward Souls, is finally upon us, and I know I'm not alone in being incredibly excited that it's finally here. However, don't slip on some of these other games, as stuff like Leo's Fortune and Tiny Dice Dungeon have potential to be total sleeper hits. As always hit up the forum links for more impressions from international players who have been playing these games throughout the day, and be sure to check out our videos of Eli's streams from earlier today where he played most of these new games as well...

Coming Tonight: 'Wayward Souls', 'Horde of Heroes', 'Tiny Dice Dungeon' and Loads More

Hey guys, it's Wednesday again which means exactly one thing for iOS gamers: A whole heap of new games. Rocketcat Games' Wayward Souls is leading the charge, as it's easily the most anticipated game we've seen in a while. The thread in our upcoming games forum has been off the chain for quite a while now, crazier yet, it was originally posted all the way back in 2011 not long after the "original" Mage Gauntlet [$2.99] was released.

So, like previous weeks, all of these games will be available at 11:00 PM Eastern, or potentially way earlier if you're in a European or Asian iTunes region. There's one caveat with that though, the games in the list that are soft launched could pop up whenever, potentially even tomorrow.

Here's what's on our radar so far, and of course, new games will likely pop up throughout the day:

Also, just for fun this week I'm going to be doing an early morning stream in addition to our normal streaming time at 4:00 PM Eastern. If you want to watch a quick once over of all these games, check it out on Twitch or watch the archive video below:

(YouTube might be processing this for a while, so if it doesn't work check back in a bit.)

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 [$6.99] 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...
