First Trailer and Details Revealed for 'Need for Speed No Limits'

EA Mobile has just put out the first details and footage of the upcoming Need for Speed No Limits. We first heard about the game in conjunction with promotion for Ken Block's "Gymkhana Seven" which came out recently. Well, today we have the first concrete details on the game. The game is centered around street racing, with cops to avoid along the way. A trailer was released today, and it shows off a snippet of game footage – it could be lane-based like Asphalt Overdrive [Free], but that's unclear. Check the teaser below:..

As one of my favorite bands Iron Chic points out in the song "Whatever Happened To The Man Of Tomorrow?", we're all on a giant blue rock that's spinning through space, falling in circles forever into the sun. It's a pretty morbid way to view human existence, and kind of depressing, but the one lyric that makes me feel better is "This once we all fall together." Hey, we're hurtling towards a giant fireball in space, but at least we're in it together, right? That's similar to the premise behind Sunburn! [$2.99], the debut title from developer Secret Crush that just hit the App Store this morning...

The release of iOS 8 allows for 3rd party widgets to live a happy life right on your today screen. Some of these widgets do useful things like adding detailed weather information via Weather Underground [Free], send quick notes to Evernote in Neato [$1.99] or add a calculator with PCCalc [$9.99]. Others do silly things like checking up on your character in Godville [Free], fiddle around playing the Flappy-like Overglide [$0.99]... And now, of course, play the ultra-popular Threes! [$2.99] clone 2048 with the just-released 2048 in Widget! [$0.99]...

Get ready to return to the night shift at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, as the indie horror sensation Five Nights at Freddy's [$2.99], which is still number one on the iPhone paid charts, has just had its sequel released to the App Store, Five Nights at Freddy's 2 [$2.99]. The sequel promises more of the same paranoia-driven gameplay, where hte goal is to monitor security cameras and to use the few protective tools at your disposal to survive the night and keep the walking animatronic characters out of your office, all without running out of power. There's a new flashlight, music box, and mask to use to deal with the new and upgraded animatronic characters...

Out Now: 'Kingdom Rush Origins', 'Earn to Die 2', 'Football Manager Handheld 2015', 'Checkpoint Champion', 'The Last Door: Collector's Edition', 'Offroad Legends 2' and More

Alright folks, strap in for a pretty epic night of new iOS game releases. Well, I guess one man's epic night is another's "weak week", but personally there are a ton of games I'm excited for tonight. New Kingdom Rush, new Earn to Die, Checkpoint Champion, Crossy Road, One More Line… the list goes on for games that are total insta-downloads for me. I even threw Vainglory in on this list even though it came out a few days ago, just in case anybody missed it. What are you excited for? Let us know in the comments which games you'll be going for tonight...

We're nearing Thanksgiving, and pretty much any significant US holiday means that it's time for paid apps to go on sale. And now, about a week ahead of the day where Americans eat turkey, watch football, and maybe give thanks for stuff, like turkey and football, apps are going on sale. We've posted about some of the more notable sales throughout the day, but here's a grand list of the games on sale:..

Upcoming Hack 'n Slash 'Taichi Panda' Gets a New Trailer, Release Set for December

You may remember when we were at E3 back in June we briefly checked out a new hack 'n slash game from Snail Games called Taichi Panda. Even with our short hands-on time with Taichi Panda, we found it to be a lot of fun, with three unique playable characters and fast, satisfying combat. Snail Games has been using our forums for beta testers for the game, with a planned release date sometime before the end of the year. Today they've sent along a sort of more specific release date, which will be sometime in December, along with a brand new trailer...

The Artsy 'Duet' and 'Blek' on Sale for $0.99 Each

Want a couple of minimalist, artsy, and enjoyable games on the cheap? Well, here's a couple to check out: Blek [$0.99] and Duet [$0.99] are both on sale for $0.99 right now. Both are great games well worth playing. Duet is a challenging survival game from Kumobius that Pivvot [$2.99] fans might enjoy, as both are about spinning around a fixed point, but both games go in different directions from there. Duet has been frequently updated since release, adding in narration, and new level packs including the most recent "Epilogue" level pack...

Yes, believe me, I am fully aware this is an iOS games site, so before you read the headline and race to the comments, I know. With that being said, there's a lot of people out there, including a few real life friends of mine who might have an Android phone but an Apple tablet... Or the other way around. Regardless, there's people reading TouchArcade who this news is useful for. I promise you...

Badland [$0.99] was one of 2013's best games, and it's currently dirt cheap: on sale for $0.99, down from its regular $3.99 price, with only one in-app purchase for $0.99, for the ten-level Doomsday Level Pack. Our opinion on paying for DLC was well established last week. The game goes on sale occasionally, but $0.99 is as good a price as any to pick up this gorgeous, critically-acclaimed platformer, which features both a singleplayer campaign along with same-device multiplayer for up to four people...

This morning a lot of people on Twitter are pointing out that Apple has changed the label of buttons on the App Store. Previously, when you went to download a free game, the button you hit to do it said "Free". Makes sense, since it's where the price goes for other paid apps...

Lament that Real Racing 3 [Free] is free-to-play, and wish for a version that wasn't? Well, EA and the former Firemint's second entry in the racing series, Real Racing 2 [$0.99 / $0.99 (HD)] is currently on sale for $0.99. The game was an absolute classic back at its release in late 2010, and if you prefer your stylish racing games with an up-front cost instead of being free-to-play – as I hear some of y'all are – then here you go...

'Highrise Heroes' from Noodlecake and Fallen Tree Games Drops in December

Fallen Tree Games recently released the high score game Noon [Free] to the App Store, and Noodlecake recently published the life-ruining Bitcoin Billionaire [Free], but now the two studios are coming together to release Highrise Heroes, a story-driven word game with a solid creative pedigree behind it. Highrise Heroes has players trying to escape a crumbling skyscraper after an earthquake, doing so the only way they know how: by forming words from a grid of tiles. The game takes place across 90 levels, with a variety of characters both good and bad to try and help and hinder respectively to descend the tower and survive...

Been wanting to take a run at The Wolf Among Us [Free] from Telltale, but have been waiting for their customary first episode freebie to hit the App Store? Then I have good news for you, as you can get episode 1 free starting today. As is customary, you can play the first episode by downloading the app, and then pick up other episodes either by paying $4.99 for each of the episodes, or $14.99 for a season pass containing the rest of the series...

Earlier this year, we reviewed the SteelSeries Stratus pint-sized iOS game controller. It's a great accessory, but the common complaint across the entire internet seemed to be that it's just too tiny. The SteelSeries Stratus is great for having a small controller to toss in your bag and play with on the go, but if you actually want to settle in to your couch and get involved in a longer play session it didn't take long before you started wishing the controller was bigger...
