It's Cyber Monday today and sales abound, but if you've been looking for some cool merchandize for cheap, Supercell's got you covered. The developer's official store is running a 20% off store-wide sale for today, and if you're a fan of any of Supercell's games, you should definitely take advantage of this opportunity. The store sells Clash of Clans [Free], Clash Royale, Boom Beach, and Hay Day merchandize that spans the gamut. There are plenty of socks (that also come in sock packs), plushes, shirts, and a ton more stuff. Some of the shirts are actually pretty cool...

The popular RPG Summoners War [Free] is expanding across mediums, and it's working with Skybound Entertainment to do so. As announced during the World Arena Championship, Summoners War will work with Skybound Entertainment, the creator of The Walking Dead comics, to turn the popular franchise into comics, animated series, and more. Skybound is planning on giving us both a "deep and engaging" origin story of the game's universe and various characters but also content that will act as companion pieces to the actual game. Robert Kirkman, the creator of The Walking Dead, said that the Summoners War team has created a compelling world filled with storytelling opportunities, and he and the rest of Skybound are excited to turn that universe into multiple forms of content...




Best iPhone Game Updates: 'Enyo', 'Cooking Dash', 'Sandbox Evolution', 'Shooty Skies', and More

Hello everyone, and welcome to the week! It's time once again for our look back at the noteworthy updates of the last seven days. Okay, so the long holiday weekend meant lots of great sales, but the other side of that is that there weren't a whole ton of updates. I did what I could here. Of course, you can keep an eye out for updates yourself using AppShopper or by participating in the TouchArcade forums. This weekly summary is just here to fill you in on the things you might have missed. Let's dig in!..

'GRID Autosport' Review - The Best Racing Game on Mobile by a Mile

My review of Codemasters and Feral Interactive's GRID Autosport [$9.99] can easily be my shortest review ever: if you want the best racing game on mobile by far and one of the prettiest game ever to grace the platform, stop reading and go buy this game right now. Why? It's simple, really. GRID Autosport is a fully premium experience with content that will take you forever to complete, a ton of ways to play, fantastic visuals, and highly customizable controls and difficulty level that will suit every player out there. Feral Interactive has really brought a console-quality game to iOS. The port of the game is almost perfect, but expect your battery to drain faster than the gas tank of a supercar and also the rare frame drops when visuals are turned up (even on an iPhone X). Despite these small issues, GRID Autosport is a fantastic game and one racing fans have been craving for...

Simogo has been vocal about how supporting iOS 11 and now iPhone X has been for them. They’ve even commented about how it has affected their development of newer projects. Today they finally spoke about specific games like ..

RPG Reload File 103 - 'Warhammer Quest'

Hello, gentle readers, and welcome to the RPG Reload, the weekly feature where even our finest apparel reeks of goblin blood. In each installment, we take a look at a game from the App Store's past to see how it stands up in the here and now. It's a chance to revisit old favorites, reflect on their position in the overall iOS library, or simply to take a deeper dive than our reviews typically allow for. I try to cover a variety of games in these articles, but if you feel like I'm missing something very important, by all means let me know. You can offer up suggestions in the comments below, and while I can't promise I'll get to them soon, they will be added to the master list for future consideration...

Kobolds & Catacombs, the upcoming Hearthstone [Free] expansion, is almost upon us, so—as was to be expected—more and more cards are being revealed. And now we have the schedule for Week 2 of card reveals, and there are a ton of them coming. There are numerous reveals per day (not all of them in English), and you can find links to all of them here. TouchArcade will reveal a few cards as well on Monday in collaboration with Value Town, so make sure you don't miss that. Since the reveals are spread across the world, you can probably find the ones that work for your schedule, unless you either don't like spoilers or don’t care to be among the first to see a new card...

Two weeks ago, Sports Interactive released Football Manager Mobile 2018 for the soccer fans among you who like to play on the go (or lack a tablet). Today, the developers released Football Manager Touch 2018 [$19.99 (HD)], the tablet-only game that brings a much deeper soccer management game to iOS and Android. The new version of (in my opinion) one of the best games out there brings a few new additions, including revamped scouting (which allows you to better search through the thousands and thousands of players in the game), a medical center (which in theory should help you avoid too many injuries), better clauses and options for your transfers, new player roles, and tactical improvements...

One of the remarkable things about the first three games in the Cally's Caves series of action-platformers is in how far they came in a relatively short time. The first game is quite primitive compared to the third, but they released only a couple of years apart. The thing about gains like that is that they rarely scale in a linear fashion. Cally's Caves 3 [Free] was an outstanding accomplishment for an indie game, presenting something that wouldn't have been terribly out of place as a retail release on a dedicated handheld. There's really only so much more Cally's Caves 4 [Free] could realistically be expected to do to top that. True to that, this is more or less another helping of the high-quality action found in Cally's Caves 3. For whatever it lacks in novelty, however, it makes up for by burying you in quantity...

Bandai Namco Entertainment Announces 'My Tamagotchi Forever' for iOS and Android

Bandai Namco Entertainment just announced My Tamagotchi Forever for iOS and Android devices. The original Tamagotchi took everyone’s heart 2 decades ago and there’s a new generation of both Tamagotchi and fans now. Developed by Paladin Studios, My Tamagotchi Forever will be a free to play release. It is currently planned for a worldwide release in 2018 but has soft launched in Canada. Check out the announcement trailer showing it off below:..

'GRID Autosport' Releases on November 27th for $9.99 for iOS

Feral Interactive have finally announced the release date for GRID Autosport. The premium racing game will be releasing sooner than you think. We already learned about the hardware requirements and you will need iOS 11 and a lot of space on your device to play this. They recommend 8GB of free space to avoid installation issues but the game with its free DLC packs will be about 6GB. On the iPhone side of things, it will support iPhone 7 and later and only work on iPad Pros (and the 2017 9.7 inch iPad). The video below demonstrates why it is so demanding:..

Are you ready for more Hearthstone [Free] Kobolds & Catacombs lore? I hope so, because Blizzard just gave us the second part of Tale of the Fox, the story about Marin the Fox's descent into the Kobold mines and caves. There's all kinds of strange magic now, the weird and powerful Kobold King (with his candle in a lantern, weird and strange golems, and even a creature that we saw during the card reveals on Monday: the Feral Gibberer, the closest we'll probably ever get to an evil gremlin in Hearthstone. The story is pretty fun and the art fantastic, so you should definitely check it out...

As promised earlier this week, Capcom has just released their latest mobile version of the classic puzzle battling game Puzzle Fighter [Free] to the App Store worldwide. Announced at the end of August, this rebooted entry in the series features completely redone 3D visuals and head-to-head online multiplayer in a package that's built specifically for mobile. While the actual art style of the new visuals is sure to be subjective, the 3D polygonal models should scale much better to the different resolutions of all the iOS and Android devices out there. Here's the latest Puzzle Fighter trailer...

If you've watched Thor: Ragnarok (an excellent movie by the way), then you probably know that Hela, the Goddess of Death played by Cate Blanchett, was one of the movie's highlights partly because of her general badassery. Tomorrow, Hela is making her way to Marvel Contest of Champions [Free] and promises to be as devastating as she is in the movie. Hela's Special moves will be familiar to anyone who's watched the movie. Her first special move, Fury of the Dead, lets her stab her opponent in the heart (and not in a metaphoric, romantic way), her second, Soul Breaker, has her throwing twin blades and a huge axe with immense force, and her third special move, Hand of Glory, lets her summon a whirlwind of weapons just like in most of the movie's fight scenes...

Naruto x Boruto Ninja Voltage [Free] from Bandai Namco Entertainment has finally released for iOS and Android devices. Having initially been announced as a next generation mobile game a few months ago, you can now play as your favourite characters from the Naruto and Boruto worlds. The RPG will let you create your own ninja fortresses and infiltrate those of other players. Watch the gameplay trailer below:..

Recently, we got the opportunity to interview Dariya Klimchuk, eSports Director for World of Tanks Blitz [Free], during the Blitz Twister Cup of World of Tanks Blitz. We are always interested in how mobile games become competitive eSports games, and World of Tanks Blitz is a great example of that. Wargaming has become a behemoth by now, with World of Tanks Blitz doing very well and World of Warships Blitz on its way to a global release. It's always hard to gauge people's interest in eSports, but we do know that Blitz's PC brethren, World of Tanks, has been doing well as an eSport, so we wanted to see how the team is developing a mobile game with an eye towards eSports. Enjoy the interview below...

One game I've been having a ton of fun with since its release in early October is the stunt driving game REKT! [$1.99] from the Little Chicken Game Company. It gives you a handful of different stunts you can perform with your car, and then sets you loose in a big arena to go seek out the highest-scoring tricks and lines in the limited time of your run. It's kind of like Tony Hawk's Pro Skater meets an over-the-top stunt driving game. It's great! We loved REKT! in our review. One of the biggest requests I've seen since it came out though was for more levels to play in. The initial release came with just one level, and although it's pretty huge and filled with tons of ramps and obstacles, variety is the spice of life. So the developers listened to those requests and have just released a new update which adds a new level called The Bowl for players to explore. ..

Telltale continues to spit out episode after episode of its many series, and today is the turn of episode 3 of Batman: The Enemy Within [Free] , probably the best series of the last few months (judging from what I've played of it so far). In this series, Batman has to deal primarily with the Riddler (and a few others) while also trying to navigate the complex power politics of Commissioner Gordon and Amanda Waller (I won't say much about who she is because that would spoil the series a bit). And while Batman is having a hard time navigating his current situation, Bruce is also having more than a few issues of his own, which is part of what has made this series fun to play. The series managed to make Bruce Wayne an interesting character to play, and that has really helped the series...

Yesterday we wrote about Pokemon GO's [Free] Global Catch Challenge, which asked players to catch as many Pokemon as they can in one week and offered rewards according to how many were caught. Well, in barely a day, trainers across the world have captured over 500 million Pokemon, which unlocks the Bronze Rewards tier for everyone. The biggest reward is that now more Pokemon will appear globally, which will give players an easy way to complete their collection or just have more fun hunting down those poor critters. Given the current pace, I expect that players will reach the ultimate goal of capturing 3 billion Pokemon until November 26th; after all, I'm pretty sure Niantic picked a number that was sure to be surpassed...

Square Enix's latest premium release on mobile, Final Fantasy Dimensions 2 [$14.99], is an unusual game in a few ways. Perhaps its most curious quality is that it's a premium game built from the skeleton of a free-to-play game. We see the opposite happen often around here, but it's rare to see things go down this way. On top of that, it's been a good long while since the first Final Fantasy Dimensions [Free] released. Friends, I had questions. Fortunately, I had to opportunity to get some answers from no less than the game's director, Takashi Tokita...
