Free Buy Now

I added it in our new games roundup already, but Magic 2015 [Free (HD)] is rad enough that it deserves its own post. Following in the long line of yearly iteration in the Magic world on iPad, Magic 2015 takes everything about Magic 2014 and makes it incrementally better. It's basically the collectible card game equivalent of Madden at this point. New players (err, cards, in the case of Magic) and a few new features which generally make re-buying every year worthwhile...

Remember Fates Forever [Free (HD)]? We first posted about it over a year ago, and it's been soft launched in a few territories forever… But now it's finally here on the US App Store. Fates Forever is a mobile MOBA by Hammer & Chisel, a new studio headed by one of the original creators of OpenFeint, Jason Citron...

If you're hardcore enough to have a New Zealand iTunes account for all the iOS releases the second they hit the App Store or you just so happen to live in New Zealand, you're in luck- Civilization Revolution 2 just popped up in your part of the world. It seems safe to assume it'll be available to download for everyone else at the normal (Well, it's Tuesday, so "normal".) time of 11:00 PM Eastern...

Last week, we got wind that animator and designer David O'Reilly, famous for his work on Spike Jonze' Her, Adventure Time, and shorts like The External World, was submitting his first game to the App Store. In a rare Tuesday morning release, Mountain [$0.99] is now available...

We talked about it last week, but it'd seem that SNK's The Rhythm of Fighters [Free] hit the App Store early this morning. Basically, it's King of Fighters [$0.99] except instead of button mashing you're pulling off rhythmic combos in time with the music:..

It was just last week we learned Mika Mobile's follow-up to Battleheart was submitted to Apple, so when we saw the game show up in the New Zealand App Store this morning we weren't totally sure if it was some sort of soft-launch, an accident, or what. Well, it turns out it was simply a very fast approval process and the release date was set for May 28th, a day earlier than the typical App Store release day, which means that Battleheart Legacy [$4.99] is now officially out in the US and the rest of the world...

In a world dominated by quick, bite-sized, "casual" experiences, there always seems to be a subset of gamers begging for something meaty on iOS. Well, this one's for you: HyperDevbox have just released their iOS port of the Xbox 360/PS3/PC game Record of Agarest War [$14.99]. As mentioned, Record of Agarest War was originally released for consoles and PC several years back, and is a massive tactical JRPG that boasts over 100 hours of gameplay. That's enough to fill, like, 1,200 times waiting in line at the movies. It's also stuffed with a full storyline to follow and tons of cutscenes, and rumor has it there's even a dating meta-game where you can eventually have a child with your partner. I'm strangely intrigued by that part...

For those living in the US like us, it can be kind of rough as we're among the very last to get access to the App Store's weekly releases due to how time zones work. So, as we watch our international pals playing all the cool new games throughout the day, we're stuck just kind of twiddling our thumbs. However, each week there's usually at least one game that "jumps the gun" and comes out early, and this week that game is Uber Entertainment's tower defense game Toy Rush [Free]...

Last month during PAX East, Rock Band creators Harmonix announced a new rhythm-based runner for mobile that utilized your device's library of music to drive the gameplay. After a brief soft-launch period, Record Run [Free] is now available worldwide. Alongside the full launch a pretty substantial update is also now available for Record Run, featuring new obstacles to dodge and several tweaks to the scoring and bonus mechanics...

As we learned just a couple of weeks ago, Gamevil had a licensed MLB baseball simulation game in the works, and today that game, MLB Perfect Inning [Free], is now available. While the resurrection of the RBI Baseball franchise quenched our arcade baseball thirst with RBI Baseball 14 in early April, iOS gamers have still been waiting for a true, MLB licensed simulation. MLB Perfect Inning aims to fill that role, but being a free to play game from Gamevil it'll be interesting to see how the pay model affects the experience...

We've still got about five more hours to wait before this week's batch of new releases lands in the US App Store, but if you're feeling impatient and just have to get your hands on a new game right now, Backflip's new puzzler Dwarven Den [Free] has exited its soft-launch and–jumping the gun on tonight's new games–is now available worldwide. Here's the official trailer for Dwarven Den...

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 [$6.99] finally did arrive in the App Store. Take a gander at the launch trailer...

After a fairly brief soft-launch period, Blizzard's Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft [Free (HD)] has finally arrived in the US App Store. Hearthstone is a card battling game set in the Warcraft universe. It was announced at PAX East last year, and went through a rather lengthy beta testing period on desktop. That beta test was eventually opened up to include anyone, and last month the beta finally ended and Hearthstone was released on desktop. Earlier this month Hearthstone officially soft-launched for iPad in select regions, and it was assumed it would be at least a month or two before it was released worldwide...

In case you missed the drama, following a botched launch that felt like a soft launch hardcore iOS gamers did what they always do: Download games using their New Zealand accounts the second they hit the App Store and start sharing their experiences via text descriptions, screenshots, and videos in our forums. FOX's reaction to this was to issue copyright claims, close Twitch channels, and basically swing their legal flail at anyone they could. Many TouchArcade community members were caught in the crossfire, but thankfully at least Twitch has come to their senses and restored the channels that were suspended as a result of FOX's legal hissy fit...

It turns out that Rollercoaster Tycoon 4 Mobile [Free] is the surprise release of this week. Out of the blue, the game has appeared on the App Store this morning and you can now download it now for $2.99. Announced last month, it became a controversial title when the trailer showcased a lot of free-to-play elements like dual currencies, timers, and other things that strongly indicate freemium gameplay. It also seemed filled with social elements...
