iOOTP Baseball 2014 [$4.99] is the kind of game that numbers junkies will go nuts over. It’s also the kind of game that will have people who need control of every single aspect glued to their tablet from April to October (or November, if your team makes the playoffs)...

When this week's new releases came and went without a sign from Gameloft's latest Spider-Man movie tie-in game, people were confused. After all, the company had previously announced the game would be out April 17th. Well, they almost made it, as not too long after the clock changed to midnight and the calendar rolled over to the 18th here in the US The Amazing Spider-Man 2 [$4.99] finally did arrive in the App Store. Take a gander at the launch trailer...

Earlier this month, Junk Jack X [$4.99] developer Pixbits teased a new pet functionality that was set to hit their crafting and exploration heavy adventure game. Today that update has arrived, and not only does it contain pets but in true Pixbits fashion it's stuffed with tons of additional new content and features. Pixbits has always been pretty good with holiday-related updates, and with Easter just around the corner this new update contains Easter and Spring items to discover. In addition to that, there's now a new chemistry system which lets you mix and match various potions for different effects...

Hitman GO [$4.99] is not what you’d expect from a title bearing the stealth series name. And at first glance, you’d probably dismiss the game as being a cheap cash-in...

Ossian Studios' The Shadow Sun [$4.99] was in development for years before finally landing in the App Store last December, but it turned out to be worth the wait. We really enjoyed the game in our review, and it really is one of the more enjoyable Western-style RPGs on iOS. This week, The Shadow Sun received its second update since release. The first update, released in February, was mostly bug fixes, and this latest update contains some fixes as well. But it also includes a new dog companion which you can recruit to fight by your side and generally just keep you company. Yay a dog!..

If someone had said to me that I would enjoy playing an economical game of micromanagement prior to Game Dev Story I would have laughed. The mere notion of such a thing would be preposterous. Now about ten Kairosoft games later they have become an obsessions. Few companies have managed to make their games instabuys the day they are released...

America's pastime. Butt-patting. A League of Their Own? Whatever word, phrase or movie may make you think of baseball, the sport has been played, changed, and even endured a lockout. But one facet has remained the whole time: it's fun to play, less so to watch. R.B.I. Baseball 14 [$4.99] is a modern take on what was a classic NES game almost thirty years ago. The original is known not just for being a fun game, but for being licensed by the MLBPA, which resulted in the first console game to use actual player names. Developed by MLB Advanced Media, this updated version stays faithful to the original...

Fans of PC Tower Defense titles may have heard of Prime World: Defenders [$0.99]. Originally released back in mid-2013, this 3D TD title made a splash offering a complete TD experience supplemented with aspects from a few other genres. Nearly a year later, Defenders finally makes its debut on iOS, a platform that should (in theory) fit it perfectly. While iOS TD aficionados will easily see that Defenders was obviously designed for the PC, it’s still a great title for fans of the genre...

Junk Jack X [$4.99] is one of the best examples of a Minecraft-like sandbox game that's tailored perfectly to mobile devices. You can explore, battle, craft, build… basically do a near-infinite amount of cool things as you create your own adventure in the tiny world of Junk Jack. According to a post by developer Pixbits in our forums, you'll soon be able to do all those awesome things with an adorable pet companion at your side. Check out the teaser screen they posted showing some of these cute little buggers...

Joe Dever's Lone Wolf Episode 1 [Free] is now free to celebrate the second episode’s release as an in-app purchase. This sort of price drop isn't uncommon in the Appstore as The Walking Dead [Free] also went free when more episodes came out in order to offer a taste of the full adventure. ..

Telltale is a really busy studio nowadays. They’re working on Game of Thrones, Tales from Borderlands and they are still pushing out episodes for The Walking dead [$4.99] and The Wolf Among Us [$4.99]. That last one is inspired by the comic “Fable” and features the Big Bad Wolf as the main character. We’ve been reviewing episodes of that series as they came out and we couldn’t wait for the story to continue. Well today Telltale has released a trailer for Episode 3 titled “A Crooked Mile” and while it still doesn’t have a date set in stone yet you shouldn’t have to wait much longer...

Kairosoft continues to bring their vast library of simulation games over to the world of iOS, the latest being World Cruise Story [$4.99] which has been available on Android for quite some time. As you might have guessed, World Cruise Story is all about creating the greatest luxury cruise liner in the world. Here's a look at some screens from the Android version (since the screens in the iOS App Store are kind of garbage)...

About this time last week we were telling you that an English language version of the interactive novel 999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors was heading to iOS on March 17th. Well, that's today, and as expected the game is now available in the App Store as the retitled 999: The Novel [$4.99 / $4.99 (HD)]...

It's that time of the month again, where Kemco releases another RPG from their stable of developers using the same old engines and... Sweet Merciful Odin's Beard, it's 3D! Only partially, but still! Okay, I'm being a little flippant here. Most of Kemco's developers have each brought out a new engine in the last couple of years, but Alphadia Genesis [$4.99], from Across Age 2 [$3.99] developers EXE Create, is the first one to use polygonal graphics. It's a superficial advancement, to be sure, but a welcome one from a publisher whose games are generally pretty hard to tell apart for the layperson. It's something of a half step, since only the battles are rendered in polygons while everything outside of them uses the same old 2D sprite engine, but that's to be expected considering the giant jump in scope and budget going full 3D would entail. So, less Final Fantasy 7 and more Wild Arms, but it's still kind of cool to see a polygonal JRPG on iOS from someone other than Square Enix...

'The Wolf Among Us' Episode 1 & 2 Review - Red in Tooth and Claw

The first thing that happens in Telltale Games’ The Wolf Among Us [$4.99] is that Sheriff Bigby Wolf talks to a toad in a cardigan. The second thing, at least for me, is that he gets beaten to death (twice). Apparent cause of death is an axe handle through the eye socket, but I’m no doctor...
