Now that the Flappy phenomenon is (mostly) behind us, we can get back to looking at games like this and being like "Oh hey, that looks like a neat cave flyer!" right? Well, whatever, that's exactly what I said when I saw this trailer:..

Creator of '10000000' Reveals 'Smarter Than You' in New Trailer

While the rest of us are (im)patiently waiting for Luca Redwood's 10000000 [$2.99] followup You Must Build a Boat which was revealed earlier this year, he's apparently working on something else. That "something else" is Smarter Than You, a multiplayer social-y game that looks a little bit like a significantly spruced up version of rock-paper-scissors in the just-released "instructional video":..

'Dawn of the Immortals' is a Cool Looking 3D MMORPG Soft Launched in Mexico

The iOS MMORPG market is mostly dominated by Gameloft's Order & Chaos [$6.99] and a few other titles that all have varying degrees of World of Warcraft-y-ness. Well, a new game popped up on our radar called Dawn of the Immortals by Perfect World Entertainment that is currently soft launched in Mexico and looks pretty sweet. Like most MMO's, it's hard to really judge the game until it goes live and gets an active playerbase, but, it's showing promise so far...

'Modern Combat 5: Blackout' Release Date Confirmed: July 24th

Gameloft has been teasing and teasing Modern Combat 5 for months on end now. They've talked about its multiplayer, its graphics, its continued online connectivity, they've streamed the game, they've done everything but say when it's releasing. And now we have an official release date: July 24th...

Need More MC Escher-Inspired Puzzle Games? Then Keep an Eye on 'Back to Bed'

Enjoy the Escherian landscapes of Monument Valley [$3.99] but want more? Well, this August, Dadiu Games' Back to Bed should provide more chaotic dreamscapes to explore, but with more of a puzzling flavor...

The creators of Bike Baron [$0.99 / Free] Qwiboo Games are finally following up their hit motorbike trials game with a brand new title making its way to iOS this Thursday, July 10th: Beyond Gravity. And just like Bike Baron, it looks gorgeous...

'Sky Tourist: Blitz Trip' Rises to the App Store Propelled by Rockets on July 10th

Three Legged Egg's Sky Tourist [$1.99] is getting a sequel this Thursday, July 10th, with Sky Tourist: Blitz Trip, a followup that will bring 60 more levels of physics-baced ascent to mobile. The game will seemingly feature similar gameplay as the original, where players move the protagonist Petey on a rope between two rockets, dragging each one up and down to help move him around and to avoid obstacles. The developers are claiming to have taken feedback from the original to heart, claiming that they have "created new levels to best fit the mobile platform," though the original was a mobile-exclusive as well. But hey, if it means a better game – and there's a smaller level count, only 60 this time instead of 75 – then I'm all for it...

Pixelbite Just Announced 'Reckless Racing 3', Coming This Fall

If you read the headline, that's the story. There's no more details right now about the sequel to Reckless Racing [$0.99] and Reckless Racing 2 [$1.99], but it's still rad knowing there's another sequel coming. There's also this work in progress image, which is missing a lot of textures:..

Mysterious Upcoming Adventure 'Barmark' Gets a New Trailer

Way back in January a teaser trailer for a mysterious upcoming game called Barmark caught our attention, mostly because it was so… mysterious. Billed as an adventure game with "no goals, no points and no death," the teaser for Barmark featured a really interesting art style and atmospheric soundtrack. While it looked and sounded cool, it was still really unclear what the heck you did in Barmark, but today developer Stormhatt Studios looks to address those questions in the game's latest trailer. The core of the game focuses on "grand machines" which can be turned on by the player and will alter the game's environments in different ways, which in turn can alter the behavior of the "Archanimals" in the game...

Neil Gaiman's Adventure Game 'Wayward Manor' Hits Desktop Next Week, iOS Version to Follow

Neil Gaiman is easily one of the most popular and prolific English-language writers working today. He made his bones in comics, writing issues of Spawn and Batman before striking gold with his own series, The Sandman. After that, he moved to novels: Stardust and Coraline were both turned into films, but American Gods is probably his most essential work. He's also poked around in TV (Babylon 5, Doctor Who, The Simpsons), and spends at least a tiny amount of his time telling people to leave George R. R. Martin alone...

'Modern Combat 5' Is Still Going to Require Online Connectivity

If you had your fingers crossed given recent news that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 [$4.99] was getting an offline mode that Modern Combat 5 would be getting the same treatment... I'm sorry to disappoint. As Gameloft_Ryan points out on our forums, the game is still going to have an online connectivity requirement due to the unified progression system...

Iconic Arcade Character Q*bert Heading to Mobile in 'Q*bert Rebooted'

One of the biggest video game stars of the '80s, Q*bert, is getting a modern reboot for mobile devices called Q*bert Rebooted, Polygon reports. You may recall the original game had you guiding an orange, spherical character down a mountainside of cubes in an effort to highlight each cube by stepping on it while avoiding enemies like a springy snake and gremlins that will reverse your cube highlighting. It's a classic, in its own way, so how do you reboot a classic like that for gamers in 2014? Hexagons of course. Yep, in Q*bert Rebooted the cubes are replaced with hexagons for even more sides of fun...

The world can't have enough Warhammer games, apparently. So, to appease the Blood God, Focus Home Interactive is releasing Blood Bowl to iPad. This is essentially a turn-based strategy football take on the Warhammer series, where players use the standard elven, dwarven, and orcish units to form teams where the goal is to get the ball into the end zone. The difference between this and the average football game, besides the turn-based strategy nature of it, is that it's possible to injure opposing players. Roger Goodell frowns on this whole endeavor...

Mo' Money, Mo' MOBA: CD Projekt RED Announce 'The Witcher Battle Arena'

Yesterday CD Projekt Red, in conjunction with Fuero Games, announced The Witcher Battle Arena for iOS. As the name suggests, the new game is a multiplayer online battle arena game (MOBA), in the vein of Riot's League of Legends or Valve's Dota 2. The catch, of course, is that all of the characters are from the Witcher, a series of sprawling PC and console role-playing games, based on a group of fantasy novels by Polish author Andrezj Sapkowski...

'Midnight Star' Soft Launches for the Lucky Irish

Midnight Star from the ex-Bungie and Wideload founder Alex Seropian's studio Industrial Toys has soft-launched in Ireland. The first-person quasi-on-rails shooter, which hopes to make the genre work on mobile at last with loads of touchscreen-friendly features, is now available in its "0.1" version just in the Irish App Store for now. The game is allegedly still far away from its final release, with more territories expected to get the game as time goes on...
