Throwback First-Person Dungeon Crawler 'Legend of Grimrock' Still Coming to iOS

Way back in August of 2011, almost three years ago to the day in fact, we first heard about an old-school style first-person dungeon crawler called Legend of Grimrock from then-brand-new studio Almost Human. The game looked gorgeous, and at the time was planned for a release on PC, Mac and iOS before the end of 2011. Well, that didn't quite happen, and it wasn't until April of the following year that Legend of Grimrock launched on PC, and not until that December that it launched on Mac and Linux. And the iOS port, that didn't come along until… well, we're still waiting for that one...

Mikey Boots is essentially the Return of the Jedi of the Mikey trilogy.

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...

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...
