During Comic-Con this past weekend, Marvel announced that both Marvel Pinball [Free] and Zen Pinball [Free] would be getting a new Guardians of the Galaxy table to coincide with the movie releasing tomorrow. Earlier today, an update went live which added that new Guardians of the Galaxy table to both games, and to celebrate the Marvel Pinball app is now free for the first time ever. Here's a video of the new Guardians of the Galaxy table in action...

Noodlecake Announces Their Latest Published Title, a Puzzler Called 'Joinz'

Noodlecake Games has just announced their latest published title, a casual puzzle game from Gamebra.in, a studio that comes from the Will.i.am school of naming, called Joinz. They're describing this as Tetris meets Threes [$1.99]. The idea is that this is an endless puzzle game, where blocks must be moved around to form the required shapes that are shown on the top of the game board. Each move that doesn't make a match spawns a new block on the board...

As promised earlier today, we're back again with the totally free to play deck lists to beat the heroic Plague Quarter. Keep in mind, this quarter is hard with good decks that cheese enemy health using Alexstraza… And is downright brutal with decks that only use cards that you get for free without buying any packs. But, it can be done. At this point though, you would've had to pay for this Hearthstone [Free (HD)] expansion, either with real-world money or a substantial amount of in-game gold, so I'd think you would have better cards to play with. But, hey, if you like a challenge, try these on for size...

Vivid Games have just released the first content update for their Greek mythology-based hack 'n slash game Godfire: Rise of Prometheus [$2.99]. While a free update with new content is always a welcome sight, this particular update, dubbed the Combat Update, seems to be sort of a mixed bag. First off, as the name implies, the combat has been significantly tweaked and in turn, according to Vivid, "the combat is now more dynamic, controls more responsive, animations more fluid, and finishers more vicious than before." Neat...

Luderia Shows Off Trailer for Upcoming 'Spooklands', Coming August 21st

Luderia Games has just released a trailer for their upcoming Spooklands, and have announced when you can play it: 3 weeks from today, on August 21st. This is a one-finger arena shooter, where tapping on the screen will fire in that direction, with a bariety of bullet types both 'normal' and odd. Shooting out glowing red boots is a thing that's quite possible in this game. Considering that enemies consist of various insectoids, perhaps that's the proper weapon to use...

Sure, Dawn of the Plow [$0.99] seemed appropriate back in the days of the cold and brutal Chicago winter of 2014, when the world was cold and snowy and suddenly I wanted to go back to Texas. But now, even in the dog days of summer, Dawn of the Plow lives, as Chicago indie developer Dan FitzGerald has updated the game with a new mode, Attack of the Snowmobiles...

This past March, Sega announced a new entry in the beloved Crazy Taxi series which was to be both free to play and exclusive to mobile devices. After a brief soft-launch period, Crazy Taxi: City Rush [Free] is now available worldwide. Now, I'm imagining the arrival of City Rush will be divisive amongst players. On the one hand, Sega has crafted a really good "mobilized" version of Crazy Taxi. It's sort of like a Temple Run game, in that it's behind the back and you auto-accelerate, but you also can choose your own routes through the cities, so it feels less restrictive and more open. It can be played in either portrait or landscape orientation, and visually City Rush just pops with color and style. It's a very bright and happy game. There are also loads of customization options, from a massive fleet of different taxis to unlock to tons of visual customizations as well as ability upgrades for each...

Man, Hearthstone is really working up to be something awesome here with the way they're releasing new cards via these single player adventures. If you had any complaints about the difficulty of the heroic Arachnid Quarter, you should be more than satisfied with what you'll find in the heroic side of the Plague Quarter. These are easily the toughest challenges yet. In case you've missed any of our previous guides, here they are:..

While Radiangames' Inferno 2 has been delayed as the game has wound up a bit bigger than what they expected it to be, the studio's monthly release schedule continues unabated. This means Super Crossfire from Radiangames is on its way back to the App Store in an improved version as Super Crossfighter, launching really soon on the App Store...

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...

It isn't hard to come up with reasons to recommend 11-bit Studios excellent Anomaly series of "tower offense" games, but just in case you need a new one, all three games in the series are currently on sale for this week only. As mentioned, the Anomaly series is noteworthy for taking the well-worn tower defense genre and mixing things up by putting you in the role of the invading creeps. Call it tower offense or reverse tower defense, but either way it injected a fresh perspective to a genre that's been done to death on mobile...

Today, Square-Enix revealed their lineup for this year's Gamescom event held in Cologne from August 13th to the 17th.  They've got a bunch of stuff to show, but the biggest news for iOS gamers is that an English version of Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen will be there. While English releases seemed likely for the Dragon Quest iOS games after Dragon Quest VIII's [$19.99] sudden appearance, it's nice to have confirmation...

Man, Hearthstone [Free (HD)] is getting awesome. I talked about this on our podcast, but I've got to say this is by far the cleverest way to release new cards that I've ever seen in a collectable card game. These boss (and class) encounters are a ton of fun, and if you liked the Arachnid Quarter, you're going to love the Plague Quarter...

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...

'Great Big War Game' Not Big Enough, Rubicon Announces 'Ultimate War Game'

Rubicon Development made their name on iOS in 2011 with Great Little War Game, a turn-based strategy game with an Advanced Wars feel that was built for mobile. Indeed it was a great little war game. Then in 2012, they followed it up with Great Big War Game, and as the name implied it was a bigger, badder version of the first game with online multiplayer, which had been a highly-requested feature. It was critically well-received, but failed to really break through to the mainstream mobile audience. Perhaps it was a little too much for your average mobile gamer? So earlier this year, Rubicon released Great Little War Game 2. Its aim was to strip away some of the heavier features the series had gained and focus on what made the first game work so well...
