Kobolds & Catacombs, the upcoming Hearthstone [Free] expansion, is almost upon us, so—as was to be expected—more and more cards are being revealed. And now we have the schedule for Week 2 of card reveals, and there are a ton of them coming. There are numerous reveals per day (not all of them in English), and you can find links to all of them here. TouchArcade will reveal a few cards as well on Monday in collaboration with Value Town, so make sure you don't miss that. Since the reveals are spread across the world, you can probably find the ones that work for your schedule, unless you either don't like spoilers or don’t care to be among the first to see a new card...

Two weeks ago, Sports Interactive released Football Manager Mobile 2018 for the soccer fans among you who like to play on the go (or lack a tablet). Today, the developers released Football Manager Touch 2018 [$19.99 (HD)], the tablet-only game that brings a much deeper soccer management game to iOS and Android. The new version of (in my opinion) one of the best games out there brings a few new additions, including revamped scouting (which allows you to better search through the thousands and thousands of players in the game), a medical center (which in theory should help you avoid too many injuries), better clauses and options for your transfers, new player roles, and tactical improvements...




One of the remarkable things about the first three games in the Cally's Caves series of action-platformers is in how far they came in a relatively short time. The first game is quite primitive compared to the third, but they released only a couple of years apart. The thing about gains like that is that they rarely scale in a linear fashion. Cally's Caves 3 [Free] was an outstanding accomplishment for an indie game, presenting something that wouldn't have been terribly out of place as a retail release on a dedicated handheld. There's really only so much more Cally's Caves 4 [Free] could realistically be expected to do to top that. True to that, this is more or less another helping of the high-quality action found in Cally's Caves 3. For whatever it lacks in novelty, however, it makes up for by burying you in quantity...

Are you ready for more Hearthstone [Free] Kobolds & Catacombs lore? I hope so, because Blizzard just gave us the second part of Tale of the Fox, the story about Marin the Fox's descent into the Kobold mines and caves. There's all kinds of strange magic now, the weird and powerful Kobold King (with his candle in a lantern, weird and strange golems, and even a creature that we saw during the card reveals on Monday: the Feral Gibberer, the closest we'll probably ever get to an evil gremlin in Hearthstone. The story is pretty fun and the art fantastic, so you should definitely check it out...

As promised earlier this week, Capcom has just released their latest mobile version of the classic puzzle battling game Puzzle Fighter [Free] to the App Store worldwide. Announced at the end of August, this rebooted entry in the series features completely redone 3D visuals and head-to-head online multiplayer in a package that's built specifically for mobile. While the actual art style of the new visuals is sure to be subjective, the 3D polygonal models should scale much better to the different resolutions of all the iOS and Android devices out there. Here's the latest Puzzle Fighter trailer...

If you've watched Thor: Ragnarok (an excellent movie by the way), then you probably know that Hela, the Goddess of Death played by Cate Blanchett, was one of the movie's highlights partly because of her general badassery. Tomorrow, Hela is making her way to Marvel Contest of Champions [Free] and promises to be as devastating as she is in the movie. Hela's Special moves will be familiar to anyone who's watched the movie. Her first special move, Fury of the Dead, lets her stab her opponent in the heart (and not in a metaphoric, romantic way), her second, Soul Breaker, has her throwing twin blades and a huge axe with immense force, and her third special move, Hand of Glory, lets her summon a whirlwind of weapons just like in most of the movie's fight scenes...

Naruto x Boruto Ninja Voltage [Free] from Bandai Namco Entertainment has finally released for iOS and Android devices. Having initially been announced as a next generation mobile game a few months ago, you can now play as your favourite characters from the Naruto and Boruto worlds. The RPG will let you create your own ninja fortresses and infiltrate those of other players. Watch the gameplay trailer below:..

Recently, we got the opportunity to interview Dariya Klimchuk, eSports Director for World of Tanks Blitz [Free], during the Blitz Twister Cup of World of Tanks Blitz. We are always interested in how mobile games become competitive eSports games, and World of Tanks Blitz is a great example of that. Wargaming has become a behemoth by now, with World of Tanks Blitz doing very well and World of Warships Blitz on its way to a global release. It's always hard to gauge people's interest in eSports, but we do know that Blitz's PC brethren, World of Tanks, has been doing well as an eSport, so we wanted to see how the team is developing a mobile game with an eye towards eSports. Enjoy the interview below...

One game I've been having a ton of fun with since its release in early October is the stunt driving game REKT! [$1.99] from the Little Chicken Game Company. It gives you a handful of different stunts you can perform with your car, and then sets you loose in a big arena to go seek out the highest-scoring tricks and lines in the limited time of your run. It's kind of like Tony Hawk's Pro Skater meets an over-the-top stunt driving game. It's great! We loved REKT! in our review. One of the biggest requests I've seen since it came out though was for more levels to play in. The initial release came with just one level, and although it's pretty huge and filled with tons of ramps and obstacles, variety is the spice of life. So the developers listened to those requests and have just released a new update which adds a new level called The Bowl for players to explore. ..

Yesterday we wrote about Pokemon GO's [Free] Global Catch Challenge, which asked players to catch as many Pokemon as they can in one week and offered rewards according to how many were caught. Well, in barely a day, trainers across the world have captured over 500 million Pokemon, which unlocks the Bronze Rewards tier for everyone. The biggest reward is that now more Pokemon will appear globally, which will give players an easy way to complete their collection or just have more fun hunting down those poor critters. Given the current pace, I expect that players will reach the ultimate goal of capturing 3 billion Pokemon until November 26th; after all, I'm pretty sure Niantic picked a number that was sure to be surpassed...

News first broke in late April of 2016 that an Animal Crossing game would be making its way to the App Store, and after more than a year of speculation and a brief soft launch, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp [Free] launched globally this morning. If you've been paying any attention to what Nintendo has been doing in the mobile arena, what Pocket Camp actually is shouldn't surprise you much. Much like Super Mario Run [Free] and Fire Emblem Heroes [Free], Pocket Camp is a shockingly well done mobile adaptation of Animal Crossing without ever replacing "real" Animal Crossing games such as New Leaf on the 3DS. Similar to previous Nintendo mobile titles, Pocket Camp is severely limited in scope compared to the full-featured games on Nintendo platforms, but still serves as an incredibly fun distraction- And you really can't beat that for the current asking price of free...

After being announced for release and then soft launching in Australia, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp [Free] is finally available worldwide on iOS and Android devices. While scheduled to release on November 22nd, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is now rolling out worldwide and it is out in the US App Store right now. It looks like Nintendo will not be missing any of the holiday or Thanksgiving spending with Pocket Camp...

As anyone who's ever watched him knows, Floyd Mayweather Jr,, the greatest boxer of the last 25 years, loves showing off his wealth. So it shouldn't come as too much of a surprise to learn that he makes his mobile gaming debut today in a game called Wild Poker [Free]. Wild Poker is a casino adventure game that's like Texas Hold'em with some RPG elements. The game has power-ups, character development, and other such features on top of your basic poker game. For instance, players get to embrace the spirit of their favorite animal characters and use special skills based on that animal. As players advance, they level up and unlock new characters...

Kobolds & Catacombs Reveals and Reviews, and Other 'Hearthstone' News & Videos in 'Touchstone' #117

Welcome to another Touchstone Tavern, our weekly Hearthstone [Free] roundup of the best news and videos. As you would expect, this past week was dominated by the upcoming expansion, Kobolds & Catacombs. We got to read about upcoming card reveals and see some more new cards, read the stories of Marin the Fox and King Togwaggle (the "smartest" Kobold ever), and much more. At the same time, questions about the game's cost surfaced once more, which isn't surprising given how many players are trying to find the best way to grab those new cards. There's a lot more news to read and some really interesting videos to watch, and I hope you enjoy it all...

The upcoming Hearthstone [Free] expansion Kobolds & Catacombs is getting closer, so the developers have started revealing more cards from the upcoming set. In a stream earlier today, we got to see 9 new cards, and they hint at new things to come to the popular card game. Peter Whalen, Game Designer and lead designer on the upcoming set, teamed up with streamer Brian Kibler to talk about the new set and reveal the cards. The biggest surprise of the reveals was probably the new Rogue secrets. Players don’t think of the Rogue class when thinking secrets, and while we won't be getting too many of those cards, they might offer a new way to build Rogue decks. The two secrets are Sudden Betrayal, a 2 mana card that redirects an attack on your hero to one of its neighbors (I'm not sure I like this new wording here because it might confuse players), and Cheat Death, a 2 mana card that returns a minion that died to your hand and reduces its cost by 2...

Can Pokemon GO [Free] players collectively catch 3 billion Pokemon in just 7 days? That is what the Global Catch Challenge hopes to find out. The Challenge has already started and will run until November 26th, when it will conclude with a special celebration at the Pokemon GO Safari Zone event in Tottori, Japan. If players manage to catch 500 million Pokemon, then everyone gets the Bronze reward, which will give players double XP and more Pokemon appearing globally. If 1.5 billion Pokemon are caught, even more Pokemon will appear globally, and if the 3 billion catches mark is reached, Farfetch'd will be available worldwide for 48 hours while Kangashkan will be available in East Asia for 48 hours. And, of course, players will get some other bonuses as well...

During BlizzCon 2017, we got to sit down with Mike Donais, Hearthstone's [Free] Principal Game Designer, and Jomaro Kindred, Senior Concept Artists at Blizzard, and talk about the upcoming Kobolds & Catacombs expansion. We talked about the evolution of the Dungeon Run mode, the way the loot system works in more detail, the various inspirations behind the expansion's art, and much more. As always, this was a cool opportunity to see the thought process behind a Hearthstone set, and this time it was even more interesting than other times because of the addition of the brand new Dungeon Run mode. And I've played enough of Dungeon Run at BlizzCon to know that they really knocked it out of the park with this one...

Final Fantasy Brave Exvius [Free] has been celebrating a year of service and Square Enix has announced a big batch of promotions and a big collaboration event for it. Noctis from Final Fantasy XV will be returning to Final Fantasy Brave Exvius along with Gladioulus, Cor, and Oris. There will be a new Final Fantasy XV event in the next few weeks with boosts to abilities and new ones for Noctis. This collaboration comes right after the return of Ariana Grande and the NieR: Automata collaborations. If you aren’t familiar with Noctis or the world of Final Fantasy XV, Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition is on its way to the App Store already and you can check out Eli playing it below:..

While the pace of them has slowed down a bit since iOS 11's initial release back in September, I still get unreasonably excited when I see an older game I'm still clutching onto get a 64-bit compatibility update. Today's winner: Disney's Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse [$4.99]. The game originally arrived on iOS with zero warning or fanfare back in November of 2013, only a couple of months after its debut on consoles. There had never been a single update to the game since then, however, which led me to believe that this would be one lost forever in the great 32-bit Appocalypse. I'm very happy Disney has decided to update Castle of Illusion, and on top of just basic compatibility, the game even supports the new iPhone X screen. Check it out...

CSR Racing 2 [Free] is one of the most popular games on the App Store partly because of its accessible gameplay but mostly because of its selection of gorgeous and highly detailed supercars. If you're among those who love their CSR2 car collection, you're in luck because starting today, you can enjoy that collection in augmented reality. The developers used Apple's ARKit to bring your garage into your living room or out in the street. And this is more than just being able to add a car-shaped blob in the middle of the house; this is highly detailed 3D models recreated in AR in great detail. CSR2's AR Mode boasts what the developers call "innovative features" like the ability to open the car's doors, trunk, hood, and even stepping inside a real-life size supercar. And, of course, you can share all your "real-life" photos of your customized supercars...
