It's been a long road, but Monster Hunter Freedom Unite [$14.99] has been updated to work with the latest version of iOS and is back on the App Store. The iOS port of the classic PSP title had been broken since the arrival of iOS 9 back in September of 2015, barely a year after the game had launched worldwide. At the time, Capcom seemed to have no plans to fix the game and pulled it from the App Store, disappointing many fans who had come to love the game on their mobile devices...

Update Mondays: 'Temple Run 2', 'Disney Crossy Road', 'Wrestling Revolution 3D', 'Star Traders 4X Empires', and More

Hello everyone, and welcome to the week! It's time once again for our look back at the noteworthy updates of the last seven days. Regrettably, I'm in the middle of a move right now and don't have as much time for writing as I usually do, so this week's article is going to be more of a "best-of" than usual. I apologize, but we should be back to the normal size next week. Of course, you can keep an eye out for updates yourself using AppShopper Social [Free], the watchlist in the TouchArcade App [Free], or by participating in the TouchArcade forums, but this weekly summary is here to fill in the things you might have missed. Let's dig in!..




After teasing for a few days, Supercell has released Clash Royale's [Free] 1.4 update that brings plenty of new things to the game. The first big feature is Tournaments. Once you've unlocked the Tournaments mode, you can create a local tournament based on your location. The Tournaments will offer "HUGE rewards" (Supercell's words, not mine), so that should be a strong incentive to try and organize or participate in one. In typical Clash Royale fashion, you won't be able to enter another tournament while you're unlocking your Tournament reward chest. Any new way of playing the game is fine with me since it should keep it fresher...

Leap Day [Free] is quite literally the gift that keeps on giving. Playing new and varied levels every day has proved to be an exciting experience which has captivated our forums and doesn't seem to be getting old anytime soon. Furthermore, the developers Nitrome have tirelessly supported the game with content updates adding new characters and other cool features, despite the fact it only launched on the App Store less than two months ago. This trend has continued, as today a new update for Leap Day has released with new themes, levels and more...

Capcom's Monster Hunter Freedom Unite [$14.99] has been broken for... What feels like forever. It was one of the many games that got smoked out with the release of iOS 9, and somewhere along the timeline of this whole cluster-you-know-what they eventually just removed it from the App Store. Earlier this year some clever jailbreakers figured out a tweak to get the game running again, but everyone else was stuck waiting for the update which has been rife with delays. Well, per recent news from Capcom, the update will be hitting inside of the next ten days...

Disney films were a big part of my childhood, and I'm sure that sentiment is shared by many people. This means that even though Disney Crossy Road [Free] and the ever growing roster of stars are mainly an aesthetic change on the original formula, playing as the cast of characters I grew up with has a nostalgic joy that makes the game pretty difficult to put down. In accordance with the release of Finding Dory over the next couple of weeks (it's already out in the US, but some of us around the world are still impatiently waiting), a new update has dropped featuring many of the aquatic animals from he film, as well as other miscellaneous Disney figurines for any fervent collectors to acquire...

Back in late January, developer Kenny Sun released Circa Infinity [$2.99] to the App Store, describing it as a "brain-melting circular platformer." Well, seeing as actually describing in detail what it is you do in Circa Infinity is nearly impossible, "brain-melting circular platformer" is pretty on the money. Just know that there are trippy visuals, pumping audio, and frantic twitch platforming all wrapped up in a slick package. We loved Circa Infinity in our review, and that's probably the best place to find out just what this one is all about. Anyway, today is a big day for Circa Infinity as a huge new update was just released which adds in an entirely new endless mode called Circa Affinity...

It's no secret that I'm a True Skate [$1.99] addict. It's my daily habit, and thankfully, I've been told it's a lot healthier than smoking. This little skateboarding simulator has come a long, long way since its original release in the fall of 2012, and a constant flow of updates has added in lots of new courses and new features, making it easily the most robust skate simulator on the App Store. This Friday another new True Skate update is coming which introduces a couple of pretty big changes. ..

Both of the major Puzzle Quest games out there right now are getting some nifty new updates. First up is Marvel Puzzle Quest [Free], which has added a new Captain America: Peggy Carter. Yes, the character who has become a standout among the Marvel Cinematic Universe, making appearances in several Marvel movies, getting her own underappreciated TV series, and being part of most pressing question currently facing America: "if you're frozen in suspended animation for several decades, and you make out with the great-niece of the woman had a mutual romantic interest with back before you were frozen, is that weird? Especially if y'all just kissed like days after her great-aunt died? Like, what's the protocol here?" ..

Square Enix has just put Adventures of Mana [$13.99] on sale, and if you've been looking to play this one, the $9.99 price point is the game's first sale. If you're used to mobile game prices, that might not seem cheap, but it's still less than the regular $13.99 price. Which is a normal price for a video game, not just the weird warped world of mobile gaming pricing. But not only is this one on sale, there's also a cool new feature: you can choose between the new arranged soundtrack, but also the original Game Boy soundtrack. Huzzah!..

Following a successful launch on Android, developer Toka Loka Games brought their gooey platformer Goo Saga [$0.99] to iOS in late April, and it absolutely floored me. You played as a ball of goo with a huge personality (as far as balls of goo go) making your way through tricky platforming levels that demanded you used your gooeyness to expand or shrink down in size, as well as your suite of upgradeable special abilities. In addition, it was one of the more visually pleasing games around. For a fiver, Goo Saga was a totally worthwhile endeavor, and we enjoyed it a lot in our review, but right now you can get all that gooey goodness for the sale price of just 99¢...

Supercell is introducing a new Tournaments feature to Clash Royale [Free], and they've run down how they'll work in separate blog posts. So, the idea is that once you've unlocked the Tournaments mode, you can create a tournament that has a location attached to it, with battles set to use the established Tournament Rules. It's possible to have greater precision to your location, but the idea is that Supercell wants to make it easy to establish local tournaments. Matches won't use a standard bracket format, instead being based around a closed matchmaking system with its own leaderboard. ..

Update Mondays: 'Zenonia S', 'Sky Force Reloaded', 'Marvel Avengers Academy', 'Tiny Tower', And More

Hello everyone, and welcome to the week! It's time once again for our look back at the noteworthy updates of the last seven days. We've got a nice mix of the new and the old appearing this week, but as usual, it's mostly tilted towards free-to-play games. Of course, you can keep an eye out for updates yourself using AppShopper Social [Free], the watchlist in the TouchArcade App [Free], or by participating in the TouchArcade forums, but this weekly summary is here to fill in the things you might have missed. Let's dig in!..

Version 1.19 of Super Evil Megacorp’s mobile MOBA Vainglory [Free] is now out for the masses and with it comes significant changes beyond a seasonal facelift. With a new hero, new skins and some hefty changes to hero roles, there’s a lot of interesting things to take a look at in this update...

When Adult Swim Games launched Pocket Mortys [Free] at the beginning of the year, I figured it would be a cute Pokemon-alike dripping with Rick and Mortys fan service that would be a fun way to pass the time for a few weeks, and then it would fade away like dust in the wind. This was not the case. Pocket Mortys has been getting all sorts of updates since its launch, and after two rapid fire spring updates Adult Swim is ringing in the summertime with yet another big content update. Fans had been clamoring for new single-player content, and this update delivers that in the form of the new Morty Games, a series of 5 tournaments that will give you an opportunity to win exclusive Mortys not available anywhere else in the game...

Already, Tennis Champs Returns [Free] is one of the best games of the year, and perhaps the best tennis game since the Game Boy versions of Mario Tennis. But now this rad tennis game is about to get even better, with an update set to hit on or around Thursday, June 23rd. The killer new feature for veterans of the game? Online multiplayer via Game Center. Yes, I am all about this. ..

Zombieville USA [$0.99 / Free] was one of those early iPhone hits that put developer Mika Mobile on the map. A side-scrolling shooter with a killer art style, Zombieville launched in early 2009 and quickly rose up the charts and maintained a position there for many months to come. Obviously its success led to a sequel a couple of years later, Zombieville 2 [$0.99] which launched in October of 2011. The sequel improved upon the original with a wider range of movement, tons of unlockable characters and weapons, a cool upgrade system, and most impressive of all co-op multiplayer both locally and over WiFi. Well, it's been a couple of years since Zombieville 2 has received any update love, and like any game on iOS it has developed a few issues over the years as new iOS hardware and software has rolled out. With the release of their latest game Lost Frontier [$2.99] now behind them, Mika Mobile took this time to fix those issues as well as bring the beloved Zombieville 2 to the Android platform for the first time...

Update Mondays: 'Minecraft: Pocket Edition', 'Marvel Contest of Champions', 'The Greedy Cave', 'Leap Day', And More

Hello everyone, and welcome to the week! It's time once again for our look back at the noteworthy updates of the last seven days. With both of the big events last week, you might expect that there wouldn't be quite as many updates as usual. You would be correct in that assumption, oh wise seer. That doesn't mean there aren't some cool updates to look at, though. Of course, you can keep an eye out for updates yourself using AppShopper Social [Free], the watchlist in the TouchArcade App [Free], or by participating in the TouchArcade forums, but this weekly summary is here to fill in the things you might have missed. Let's dig in!..

Sky Force Reloaded [Free] is one of those games that is impressive in a variety of ways. In our review, we were blown away by what we called our 'favorite shoot 'em up in recent memory', and not without reason. It looks beautiful in motion, absolutely nails the core mechanics of a shooter and today it seems that active and receptive developers is another positive trait to add to the list. Infinite Dreams have announced that a new content update in response to forum feedback is due to land onto the App Store next Thursday, and appears to add a nice packet of features that is sure to help mix up the variety of an already essential game...

Supercell has announced that a balance update is hitting Clash Royale [Free] on Tuesday, June 21st, and it will finally nerf the Hog Rider. That's right, this one-track force of destruction is getting its damage decreased by 6%. Supercell's reasoning:..
