IceFlame's 'Soccer Rally 2' Hits the App Store on April 24th

Developer IceFlame Ltd struck an odd but incredibly fun mashup when they combined soccer with rally cars in 2012's Soccer Rally [$0.99], and they've been working diligently on a sequel ever since. The last time we checked out Soccer Rally 2 it was back during GDC last year, and we really liked what we saw. Soccer Rally 2 takes the core formula of the first game but expands on it in just about every way. We've been waiting patiently for Soccer Rally 2, and today IceFlame has announced that the wait won't be too much longer as the game is set to launch on April 24th. Here's a brand spanking new trailer...

'Street Fighter' Dev Releasing Card-Battler 'Yomi' on iPad Next Week

Yomi is a tabletop card-battling game that takes place in David Sirlin's Fantasy Strike universe. At some point, Sirlin made a Unity-driven version and threw it up on the Fantasy Strike website, but according to a new post on his forums, it's also coming to iPad next week...

The third episode of The Wolf Among Us [$4.99] is now available for download inside of the game. If you’ve been playing the other episodes I’m sure you are as eager as I am to continue your story of… Well, we can't even hint at what's happening without spoilers, actually. ..

With the magic of iOS 7, game updates happening in the background is a great way to miss cool new features, content, functionality, and more. Here's some recent updates you might've missed to popular games we've covered in the past:..

If you've been waiting for the official mobile version of Trials, wait no longer: Trials Frontier [Free] is now available worldwide. Announced at E3 last year, Trials Frontier is a mobile-exclusive entry in the popular stunt biking series. Trials-like stunt bike games have been popular on iOS for years, but many have long been hoping for the real deal from Redlynx. Fans finally got their wish with the announcement of Trials Frontier, but there was also a sense of worry when it was revealed to be a free to play game...

Out Now: 'Wind-up Knight 2', 'RBI Baseball 14', 'Groundskeeper2', 'Robots Love Ice Cream', 'Dungeon Quest' and More

It's new iOS game time, and it's actually a pretty fantastic week if you enjoy good video games. The long-awaited return of RBI Baseball offers throwback arcadey baseball gaming exactly as promised, Blackmoor is an action platformer with personality in spades, and Wind-up Knight 2 is the sequel to one of my all-time favorites. And that's just a sampling, there's tons of other interesting stuff in the list below. Also, Family Guy and Trials Frontier are supposed to be out today, but haven't hit the US App Store yet, so we'll keep our eye on that. Eli streamed many of these titles earlier today, so be sure to check out those vids as well as the forum links below to see what's up with today's batch of new releases...

Freebie Alert: 'Warhammer Quest' Goes Free for the First Time

Rodeo Games' excellent top-down strategy title Warhammer Quest [$4.99] has just gone free for the first time since its release almost a year ago. Warhammer Quest takes the same mechanics of Rodeo's previous Hunters games and sets it in Game Workshops' expansive Warhammer universe. We really loved the game in our review upon release, but Warhammer Quest has been updated and expanded significantly since then. There was a major update released this past October, followed by another one in December...

Wednesday New Zealand game stream! Woo! Not quite as many games as we're used to, but, I'm still excited to try some of them. Here's the games I'll be playing, and the order they'll be played in:..

Sugar High: Cartoon Network to Publish 'Zelda'-esque 'Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake'

SleepNinja Games is teaming up with Cartoon Network to publish Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake, an upcoming "environmental puzzle" game for PC, Mac, and iOS in the vein of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past...

'Warhammer 40K: Carnage' Announced from Games Workshop and Roadhouse Interactive

Surprise! There's another Warhammer game in the works. It's officially the one millionth to be announced in the past year. Ok, not really, but it kind of feels that way. This latest is a collaboration between Games Workshop and Roadhouse Interactive, and it's called Warhammer 40K: Carnage. What's interesting here is that Carnage isn't a strategy game, but it's a side-scrolling brawler. You'll play a Space Marine laying waste to Ork enemies using tons of weapons and gear and fighting across many familiar lands from the Warhammer universe. Here's some screens...

It's Wednesday again, and it's looking like this is turning out to be a weird week. Hodappy Bird was supposed to launch today, but it's stuck in approval purgatory because of the use of "bitcoin" in the game and the Family Guy game is due to be released and I suspect developers might be avoiding this week due to the inevitable king's welcome that game is going to get from Apple's featuring department...

Whenever a new competitive freemium game hits the market, there’s always a mad dash to try and get to the top of the leaderboards. Unfortunately, the only surefire way of doing that is to simply buy your way to the top with significant IAP buys. While Supercell’s Boom Beach [Free] doesn’t deviate from that norm, there are still plenty of tips and strategies to follow in order to minimize the time and money spent on the game. ..

Yesterday I almost beat the end boss of FTL, or, at least, got pretty close. I'm not sure how we can top that today but hopefully something cool and unexpected happens on stream. Either way, strap in for a couple of hours of live iOS game playing...

If you too are on the newly formed Team "F The King" with Arya Stark and Sandor Clegane and are anxiously following along with the new season of Game of Thrones (Which I couldn't watch until last night... Thanks, HBO Go!) you really owe it to yourself to check out Disruptor Beam's Game of Thrones Ascent [Free (HD)] for iPad. Sure, it's a free to play game all dressed up with timers and currencies, but it's dripping with enough fan service to please even the most hardcore Game of Thrones fan...

We first reviewed Godville [Free] not long after it was released in mid-2010 and it instantly clicked with me. People love making comparisons to free to play games like The Simpsons: Tapped Out [Free] to virtual ant farms, as they require very little interaction and basically just exist as a virtual world to amuse you for a few seconds at a time. Godville is the most virtual ant farm-y of all virtual ant farms in that instead of logging on to manage timers or interact with whatever characters there are in game, you literally do nothing. It's a zero player game that you don't interact with at all beyond either encouraging or punishing your hero- Two things which both do whatever the next microscopic increment above "nothing" would be to the game world...
