Best iPhone and iPad Games of July 2014

It's the first of August, and it's a perfect time to look back at some of the absolutely amazing games that were released in July. Unbelievably great ports, totally original games no one expected, and more. These are the sorts of things that make being an iOS gamer awesome...

Out Now: 'Angels in the Sky', 'Deep Loot', 'Micromon', 'Super Heavy Sword' and Tons More

It's Wednesday night, the time is right, and the games are here. We've got a great collection of actual premium non-free to play games this evening, which is pretty refreshing. We're expecting a couple more games that are due out tonight but weren't seen in international stores, so keep an eye on this as we inevitably add more stuff when it appears- Potentially as late as midnight Pacific time...

New iPhone Games Coming Tonight: '80 Days', 'Angels in the Sky', 'Deep Loot', 'Micromon' and Tons More

There's an awful lot of rad looking games coming tonight, both titles we were expecting from developers we know as well as totally new stuff that I can't wait to try. As usual, all of these games should hit the US App Store at 11:00 PM Eastern, or potentially earlier if your personal iTunes region is in an Asian or European country...

TouchArcade Game of the Week: 'Traps n' Gemstones'

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...

'Thomas Was Alone' Drops to $3.99 and Goes Universal

Mike Bithell's Thomas Was Alone [$5.99] is one of those things I wish I could delete from my brain. Not because it was bad, but because it was so good and the original experience was so powerful I want to experience it fresh all over again. It's an insanely clever game, as on the surface it's an incredibly basic puzzle platformer. You play as one of many characters, represented as basic polygons, and need to get them all to the end of the level utilizing each of their unique abilities. Think Blizzard's The Lost Vikings stripped down to its most minimal core...

'Modern Combat 5: Blackout' Single Player Review - Blurring the Lines Between Single and Multiplayer

After months of news, teaser trailers, and hands-on previews, Gameloft’s latest entry in its first-person shooter series is finally here. As was the case with MC4, there’s a lot to look it with this latest sequel, so this first part of the review focuses primarily on the single player campaign and underlying gameplay mechanics. In that regard, Modern Combat 5: Blackout [$6.99] is an excellent sequel that makes some dramatic improvements to said mechanics while keeping the actual FPS action mostly unchanged...

Out Now: 'Modern Combat 5: Blackout', 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles', 'Traps n' Gemstones', 'Revolution 60', 'The Great Prank War' and More

It's another Wednesday night filled with new iOS game releases, but for many people out there today is simply "Modern Combat 5 release day." And that's cool, I totally get it, we've been waiting a long, long time for Gameloft's latest FPS. Luckily, it looks like it was worth the wait. Check out our review of the single-player portion of the game, and look for a review of the multiplayer portion soon. Besides that major release, there's also a surprise arrival of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the official mobile game of the upcoming movie. It's a beat 'em up made by the guys who made Combo Crew, so I've got high hopes for it...

New iPhone Games Coming Tonight: 'Modern Combat 5: Blackout', 'Revolution 60' and Loads More

The day is finally upon us, after loads of anticipation and drama of nearly all forms, Gameloft's Modern Combat 5 is finally almost here. Also, if you're not in to modern military shooters, there's a ton of other awesome games coming out tonight too. Here's the launch trailer for MC5 if you haven't seen it yet:..

Freebie Alert: Kemco Monster Taming RPG 'Band of Monsters'

If you see Shaun endlessly reviewing Kemco games, and found yourself curious what all the fuss was about but not curious enough to drop the upwards of ten bucks their games usually cost, here's your chance. Band of Monsters [Free] just went free, down from its normal price of $7.99...

Avenged Sevenfold's Upcoming 'Hail To The King: Deathbat' Shows Loads of Potential

The music industry is in a real weird place right now, and, arguably, has been since the advent of Napster. These days, MTV is nearly irrelevant, music videos are shot with comparatively microscopic budgets with hopes for viral success on YouTube, and terrestrial radio has taken a back seat to the many great options for streaming music via the internet. Bands are forced to get creative, both when it comes to initially getting discovered as well as maintaining and fostering that popularity. Mobile gaming obviously is undeniably huge, which has bands like Avenged Sevenfold asking, "Why not make a video game instead of a music video?"..

TouchArcade Game of the Week: 'Guardians of the Galaxy: The Universal Weapon'

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...

Hearthstone [Free (HD)] is getting its first expansion next Tuesday. Pricing details were already announced, and you can buy it in one of two ways: Drop a total of 2,800 in game gold, or spend $24.99. Like World of Warcraft's Naxxramas raid instance, the expansion is split in to "wings," which each wing sold individually. The cool part of all of this is that the price to unlock things decreases as you spend gold to unlock things, so you can basically just dump the gold you've been saving and then pick up the rest for a discounted amount of real-world cash...

Out Now: 'Bio Inc.', 'Castle Doombad: Free to Slay', 'daWindci Deluxe', 'Mad Bullets', 'Zombie Commando' and More

Here we are with another busy week of new iOS game releases. As with most weeks, even if it doesn't seem like there's any major heavy-hitters on first glance, there definitely looks to be some cool titles this week. There were a few soft-launches in our list from earlier today, and we'll be keeping an eye on if any of those hit the US tonight or not. If there's anything else that you see was released that isn't in this list, feel free to shout them out in the comments below!..

Another Wednesday, another huge batch of games for us to dive in to later this evening when they all hit the US App Store at 11:00 PM Eastern. It seems like everyone and their brother is just waiting for Modern Combat 5 to hit next week, but, there's some good stuff (and another Gameloft game) in this list...
