Check Out the New 'Mikey Boots' Trailer

If you listen to our podcast, chances are you've been hearing about Mikey Boots for months now. And if you're not listening to our podcast, what the hell, man? Mikey Boots is essentially the Return of the Jedi of the Mikey trilogy. Mikey Shorts [$0.99] set the scene, Mikey Hooks [$1.99] built suspense (and added hooks) and Mikey Boots likely will end with a massive crescendo filled with X-Wings and orcs attacking Minas Tirinth...

Team Meat Announces 'A Voyeur for September'

Team Meat just announced another iOS game, titled A Voyeur for September, which in their words is a "live action stealth game." Not a whole lot else is known about the game outside of the fact that it's going to be on display at PAX Indie Megabooth later this month. Oh, there's a teaser trailer too, which doesn't add a whole lot beyond that:..

'Deep Under the Sky' from 'Incredipede' Creator Coming This Week

Colin Northway of Incredipede [$3.99] fame has announced his latest title, Deep Under the Sky, releasing this Wednesday on iOS. Created in collaboration with Rich Edwards, creator of Pineapple Smash Crew on PC, this puzzler bosts a gorgeous alien look and single-tap gameplay...

'Max Gentlemen' from 'Organ Trail' Developers Hangs its Hat on the App Store on Thursday

Organ Trail [$2.99] creators The Men Who Wear Many Hats have announced that their local multiplayer hat-stackathon, Max Gentlemen, is finally releasing on Thursday, August 21st for iOS, among other platforms, with cross-platform multiplayer...

Exclusive Hands On With 'Flappy Bird' Creator Dong Nguyen's Next Game: 'Swing Copters'

Looking back on the Flappy Bird phenomenon, and the onslaught of games developer Dong Nguyen inspired with his brutally difficult single-tap gameplay, it's clear what made it so hard to put down. The first time you loaded up Flappy Bird, chances are you didn't even make it through the first set of pipes. It might not have even been until your 10th try that you managed to make it through, but man what a feeling that was...

Confirmed: 'Pokemon: The Trading Card Game Online' Coming to iPad Later This Year

On Friday, we posted about a vague tweet from Pokemon YouTuber TheJWittz from the Pokemon Championship over the weekend mentioning that Pokemon: The Trading Card Game Online was coming to iPad. Well, that's since been confirmed by Polygon that it's not only real, but then Kotaku got word that it's coming this year...

Top Pokemon YouTuber Claims 'Pokemon: The Trading Card Game Online' is Coming to iPad

As pointed out by Gamezebo earlier this afternoon, strange things are afoot in the world of Pokemon. Pokemon YouTuber TheJWittz tweeted the following photo and said, "It looks like Pokémon TCGO is in works for the iPad! Should be a huge way to expand the game."..

Check Out 'Skater', an Upcoming Skateboard Simulation Game that Features Real World Skate Spots

Anybody that reads TouchArcade with regularity knows that I love myself some skateboarding games. From more simulation-style ones like True Skate and Touchgrind Skate 2, to the more arcadey ones like Transworld Endless Skater and Stickman Skater. There's a new one on its way that's simply titled Skater, and it falls more in the simulation category and is noteworthy in that it features real life skating locations. I actually played a very, very early version of this game at GDC last year, when it was called Touch Skate, and was impressed by a couple of its features that made it stand out from the pack of similar games...

'Call of Duty: Heroes' Soft-Launches in New Zealand and Australia

Yesterday we learned that Activision was making a casual, social real-time strategy game in a similar vein to Clash of Clans but using their cash cow Call of Duty franchise, and as they said they would they've soft-launched the game in the New Zealand and Australian App Stores. The game is called Call of Duty: Heroes, and based on the screenshots in the App Store, I'm guessing you have a pretty good idea what it's like...

'Daddy Long Legs' Coming to iOS 'Soon,' Bringing Physics-based Hilarity With It

Here's your delightful weirdness for the day: Daddy Long Legs, the newest project by Danish outfit Set Snail, is about moving a set of spindly, angular legs forward as far as you can before physics, gravity, and momentum conspire to topple the fuzzy-faced body attached to them...

A New 'Kingdom Rush' Game is in the Works, Coming this Fall

Ironhide Studios has a new Kingdom Rush game in the works, according to a post by them on our forums. Not much is known about this new game, not even a title, but according to Ironhide's post we can expect "A new world, a new race, a new ancient evil! Get ready for an awesome overwhelmingly new Kingdom Rush game!" They've also provided this tantalizing teaser image, and based on the teaser image's text of "Every Adventure Has a Beginning" I'd guess this new game may be a prequel of sorts. Makes sense, no?..

New Pixely Shoot 'em Up 'Supermassive' is Shooting for A Fall Release

I haven't, admittedly, played too many shoot-'em-ups on iOS, but most of them have been kind of dinky, for lack of a better word: they're usually a little slow and a little simple, if only to contend with the strictures and realities of touch-friendly action. Maybe I'm not playing the right ones...

Move Over 'Call of Duty: Heroes', 'Tiny Troopers' is Also Getting the 'Clash of Clans' Treatment with 'Tiny Troopers: Alliance'

One of my favorite series on iOS, and a fairly underrated one, is Tiny Troopers [Free] from Kukouri Mobile Entertainment and published by Chillingo. The first Tiny Troopers hit in June of 2012 and had you leading a squad of soldiers through many levels of battle, real-time strategy style but without all that base building. It was like a modern homage to Cannon Fodder, and we enjoyed it very much. Then less than a year later a sequel hit, called Tiny Troopers 2: Special Ops [Free]. It didn't rock the boat in terms of a streamlined RTS experience, but offered us more of what we loved in the first game in a shiny new package. We enjoyed that one a lot, too...

The 'Skylanders: Trap Team' Controller Will Only Work With 'Skylanders'

Earlier this week we posted about Skylanders: Trap Team and the cool reveal that they were going to offer a kit that features a bluetooth summoning portal and iOS game controller. Towards the end of the story, I speculated that perhaps this Skylanders bundle would be the spark that starts the fire of massive amounts of iOS 7 controller adoption rates. This, of course, was all under the assumption that the included controller was just a normal iOS 7 game controller with some Skylanders branding on top...

Upcoming 'Call of Duty : Heroes' Looks a Lot Like 'Clash of Clans' But 'Call of Duty'-ized

Activision just revealed the latest game in the Call of Duty franchise that's exclusive to iOS. That sentence probably has you pretty excited, yeah? Well, let me bring you back down to earth- It looks and sounds a lot like the free to play base building and attacking games that have blown up in popularity since Clash of Clans Started making bazillions of dollars a day...
