'Tilt to Live: Gauntlet's Revenge' Gets Its First Gameplay Trailer, Launching this Month

Back in June developer One Man Left was working on a huge content update for their latest game Tilt to Live 2 [$2.99], but as it turned out the update was so huge they decided to spin it off into its own separate game called Tilt to Live: Gauntlet's Revenge. Based on the Gauntlet mode from the original Tilt to Live, Gauntlet's Revenge will expand upon that idea in every way with three different randomized Gauntlet modes to take on in succession before squaring off against the Dot King boss himself. Today One Man Left has released the first trailer for Tilt to Live: Gauntlet's Revenge showing the game in action...

'Kingdom Rush Origins' Revealed as the New 'Kingdom Rush' Game, Teaser Trailer Released

Backin August Ironhide Game Studio spilled the beans that they were working on a brand new game in the beloved Kingdom Rush tower defense series. Their original teaser art hinted that this new Kingdom Rush game would be a prequel of some sort, and today they've officially unveiled the name of this mysterious new game: Kingdom Rush Origins. Sounds pretty prequel-y to me! Along with the official name, Ironhide has released the following teaser trailer...

'Marvel Contest of Champions' Gets a New Cinematic Trailer, Launching Worldwide in December

Earlier this week we told you how Marvel and Kabam's mobile fighting game Marvel Contest of Champions had soft-launched in the Danish App Store, and today in the midst of the New York Comic-Con Marvel has released a new cinematic trailer for the game. The trailer features several of Marvel's iconic superheroes squaring off against one another, and alludes to some of the storyline that frames all the action. As the story goes, The Collector has imprisoned all the Marvel superheroes in crystals, and only releases them so they can compete in the Contest of Champions tournament. The reasons for this and what the contest's purpose are aren't exactly clear, but I have a feeling they're tied to the creepy, giant, partially invisible dude at the end of this trailer...

For millions upon millions of mobile device owners, Zynga's Words With Friends is as important a function of their mobile device as sending text messages or browsing the web. It's basically Scrabble that you can play practically anytime or anywhere with people from across the globe, even when you're pooping. What a world we live in. Today, Zynga has introduced a massive revamp to the game and rebranded it New Words With Friends [Free]. What's new about it? First and foremost is a Solo Play option that lets you square off against an AI opponent even if you don't have an internet connection, something I've been dying for forever...

Square Enix has been slowly updating many of their old apps with controller support and various other fixes recently. Too slowly for some, I'm sure, but it's nice to see they're still making an effort to make sure classics like Secret Of Mana [$8.99] and Final Fantasy 3 [$15.99] are working as best as possible. Well, you can add one more to that list, because Final Fantasy 6 [$15.99] received an update out of the blue today that addresses some complaints about the controls, both for those with MFi controllers and those without...

Out Now: 'Dragon Quest II', 'Terra Battle', 'Castaway Paradise', 'Zombie Highway 2', 'Reckless Racing 3', 'iBomber 3' and More

It's that time of week again, and a bunch of new iOS games have made their way to the US App Store after worming their way through the various time zones across the globe. Tonight I'm especially excited for Reckless Racing 3, the latest entry in a series that I've loved on iOS over the years. There's also Terra Battle and Castaway Paradise scheduled to go live soon, but they just haven't shown up in time for this post, so we'll let you know when we spot them...

One of the names synonymous with classic arcade games is Williams' 1982 hit Joust. I absolutely loved Joust when I was a kid. I was young enough that I didn't quite know what I was doing, but I really enjoyed just bouncing around as a knight riding a giant bird, and even at that young age I could really appreciate the physics system in the game. It wasn't until years later that I actually sat down and understood the mechanics behind Joust, and my love for the game just grew. It really is one of my all-time favorites...

It's been just over a month since Epic and Chair released the Kingdom Come update for Infinity Blade III [$6.99], a blockbuster content update and the last major addition to close out the trilogy of games. However, a few bugs snuck their way into the Kingdom Come update, and Chair has announced on the Infinity Blade blog that they're rectifying those in a 1.4.1 patch which has just been submitted to Apple...

Just as the rumor mill predicted, Apple sent out event invitations this morning for their October 16th event. It'll be held at the Town Hall auditorium at the Apple HQ at 10:00 AM Pacific on October 16th. The tag line of the invitation is "It's been way too long."..

New iPhone Games Coming Tonight: 'Dragon Quest II', 'Reckless Racing 3', 'Skullduggery!', 'Zombie Highway 2' and More

You can tell we're steaming ahead into Q4 when Wednesdays are filled with big name games you were actually looking forward to, versus just a couple games you recognize. Almost all of these games were on our radar on some level before their release threads started showing up in our forums, and it's hard to say which I'm most excited for. Regardless, the pre-Christmas rush, or whatever you want to call this time of year… It's the best...

Marvel and Kabam's Mobile Brawler 'Marvel Contest of Champions' Soft-Launched in Denmark

At the San Diego Comic-Con back in July, Marvel and Kabam announced an upcoming mobile fighter set in the Marvel universe called Marvel Contest of Champions. Over the weekend, the game was soft-launched in the Danish App Store. From the early impressions in our forums, it sounds like Marvel Contest of Champions is a pared down fighter similar to Warner Bros. and DC's Injustice: Gods Among Us [Free], though with slightly more complex fighting mechanics. Here's the original reveal trailer from the San Diego Comic-Con...

Back in mid-August, we "stumbled" across a trailer for a quirky new game from developer Set Snail called Daddy Long Legs [Free]. Like QWOP [$0.99] and many other awkward physics-based games that task you with doing everyday things like, uh, walking, Daddy Long Legs sees your furry, square-ish hero trying to walk as far as possible with his ridiculously long legs. Simply tapping on the screen alternates which leg Daddy puts forward, so careful timing and a whole lot of luck are required in order to make it any significant distance...

I've said it before, and I've got absolutely no problem saying it again and again: The Room [Free / $0.99 (HD)] and The Room Two [$2.99] are among the finest games available on the App Store. The first installment is free on the iPhone (with a 99 cent purchase to unlock the rest of the game) and The Room proper for iPad has also been a buck for quite some time now. The Room Two has been on sale before, most recently this summer, but I'm not one to pass up on an opportunity to remind everyone to download these games again...

'Super Meat Boy'-like 'Glue Knight' is Free Again

October 7th, 2014 10:30 AM EDT by Eli Hodapp in Free, News, Sales
Free Buy Now

Glue Knight [Free] has had a weird life on the App Store so far. It was released for free in late August as a sleeper indie game no one paid much attention to, then folks figured out it was actually really good and it seemed like the developer upped the price to 99¢ when he saw the downloads start to spike. Well, the game is free once again, so if you missed it the first time around as a freebie, here's your chance...

iOS 8.1 Will Close Date Loophole That Allows Non-Jailbreak Emulators to Be Installed

If you're willing to jailbreak, you've basically got pick of the litter when it comes to which of the vast array of emulators on your iOS device. If you're not into the whole jailbreak scene but still are interested in emulation, things aren't so easy. ..
