Hey hey, it's time to make some crazy money, are you ready? Here we go! Those are the words that lit a fire in the hearts of many an arcade gamer and Dreamcast owner back in the day thanks to SEGA's Crazy Taxi [Free]. One of SEGA's last big worldwide arcade hits, the game was one of the Dreamcast's best sellers and among the first SEGA games to go multiplatform after the company's exit from the hardware business. Over the years, it's been re-released on just about every platform out there, including iOS and Android. To add another trophy to its shelf, it's also one of very few non-Sonic premium games to survive SEGA's big cull of titles around the release of iOS 9. SEGA clearly likes keeping the game around...

Herocraft has announced that a new PvE campaign is coming on May 30th to their game Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf [Free]. The Saga of the Great Awakening will feature ten new story-driven missions to play through. You'll take on the mysterious Necron race, who are ancient and don't like you. Five new enemies in total are there for you to take on in these missions, with four unique bosses across the ten missions...




ReplayKit is Apple's system level solution for streaming and recording the action that happens on your iOS device, and is there any game that's more well-suited for the sharing of antics than Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas [$6.99]? The answer is "no" or at the very least, "probably not." If you feel that way too then today has brought some good news as GTA: San Andreas has just received a new update that adds in ReplayKit support for iPhone 6S and later devices as well as 64-bit support to bring the game compliant for Apple's upcoming 32-bit Appocalypse. ..

World of Tanks Blitz [Free] continues its steady stream of updates, and while update 3.9 is adding some new tanks, the most interesting part of the new update is the nerfing of the game's Premium Shells. Premium Shells are shells you can buy with gold and used to have pretty crazy penetration values, which made them a great tool for those who could afford to buy them. Update 3.9 will make these shells cheaper and weaker. Certain Premium vehicles used to use primarily Premium Shells, so now those tanks will see an increase in the penetration value of standard shells. This change should (emphasis on should) make the game a bit more equal in terms of penetration and damage values...

Minecraft mash-up packs have been some of the neatest new additions to the game on all platforms, and seeing some big franchises collaborate with the iconic crafting title has gone some way to keeping the gameplay fresh amidst numerous other activities competing for your time. The Super Mario series came out in force in the recently released Nintendo Switch edition of Minecraft, and on Minecraft: Pocket Edition [$6.99] we've had Magic: The Gathering and even the Fallout series make their respective debuts in Mojang's blocky world builder. Today, the developers have announced that the cult classic cartoon Adventure Time will soon receive a mash-up pack in the console and mobile versions of the game, as you explore the Land of Ooo with the colorful and quirky characters from the series...

After having to watch the Hog Rider babble on about being at sea, we finally got the new Clash of Clans [Free] update that brings the brand new Builder Base to the game. This is a brand new land that should make the game feel fresh again in quite a few ways. In order to start your Builder Base, you first have to make it to Town Hall 4 at your home village, and then you rebuild the boat and set sail for the other side. This other side of the Clash of Clans world works in a different way than what you're used to. The elixir and gold you collect over at your Builder Base can't be used in your home village, although your Gems do cross to ocean just fine...

Best iPhone Game Updates: 'Mikey Jumps', 'Crash Club', 'Neo Monsters', 'SimCity BuildIt', 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. Is it just me, or did last week feel really long? Well, whatever your relative association with the movement of time, I've got a bag of updates for you to check out while you have your morning cup of whatevs. 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!..

FIFA Mobile Soccer [Free] developers have been increasingly trying to improve the game, and today's big update is another step in that direction. The new VS Attack Mode will replace the old Attack Mode and will feature simultaneous matches against opponents in real-time instead of the turn-based matches of old. This change should alleviate the frustration of waiting for opponents to take turns and then playing against AI versions of teams rather than against the actual players. Hopefully this will make that mode more fun to play. VS Attack will officially be available on May 24th...

Elder Scrolls: Legends [Free (HD)], the CCG based on the extremely popular universe, has received another update that has added the first version of Spectator Mode. Now, you'll be able to watch your friends screw up big time and, if you so desire, chat with them and tell them all the things they are doing wrong and why they should just quit and go play something they're actually good at. Or you could actually try and help them, but where's the fun in that, I ask. Jokes aside, a good Spectator Mode is an essential part of making a game ready for tournaments, so I'm glad to see Elder Scrolls: Legends starting to work on that feature...

Lost Portal CCG [$2.99] is a lovely game made by a single developer, and it's been one of the favorite games of our forum users, as the over 80-pages long forum thread can attest to. Today, the game received another update that makes the Aerahym Expansion available for purchase. The expansion adds 33 new cards to the game along with a new town—which comes with new quests, enemies, and bosses. There are also 15 new portraits available and the level cap has been raised by 2. And there are 17 new Avatar cards added for existing enemies along with the usual fixed and adjustments...

Earlier this month we told you that the fine fellas at Beavertap Games were prepping a huge update for their fantastic Mikey Jumps [Free], and as of just a bit ago that update has gone live in the App Store. The update adds a whopping 200 new levels to the game, and adds in a major new mechanic with warp portals. These will allow you to enter one portal and instantly exit the other, creating some mind-melting new level designs which you can see in this new version 2.0 update trailer below...

Star Realms [Free] is a great deck building game that has a pretty loyal following. When the game came to mobile, its UI design wasn't the best—as we noted in our review—and overall it didn't look as good as the game deserved. Even though the game has been out since 2014, the developers decided to release an update today that overhauls the game's look as well as adds real-time gameplay and the Colony Wars expansion. The new interface is based on player feedback and should look much better, and there's even new music. In addition to the UI changes, there have been other changes like increased security, with every move logged with the server now...

Magic the Gathering: Puzzle Quest [Free] continues to keep up with all the Magic The Gathering expansions, and today's update has brought the Amonkhet expansion to the very entertaining mobile game. Amonkhet is the 74th Magic expansion and the first in the Amonkhet block. As you might probably have guessed from the name, this expansion was inspired by Ancient Egypt. The MTG: Puzzle Quest version of the expansion comes with 155 new cards, including 10 Masterpiece cards...

Warmer weather is upon us, summer is right around the corner, and the sun threatens to engulf us all. The means it's time to bust out the Pokemon Go [Free] again, and another event from Niantic is headed your way. Adventure Week will have you finding more Rock-type Pokemon, and their evolutions. So if you've been looking for your Pokemon to get more rock-hard than ever, this is the time to do so...

Quantum Revenge [$1.99] is a game that caught our attention way back in January with its manga-inspired visuals and hectic dual-stick space shooter action. It launched at the beginning of April but unfortunately all of its promise was countered with lots of bugs and some strange design decisions. You could tell there was a really good game buried somewhere in Quantum Revenge, but its problems resulted in our middling review. However, in just the short amount of time since the game's release, developer Realtech VR has gone in hard with updating Quantum Revenge and it's a much better experience because of it. While they've mostly focused on tweaks and bug fixes in updates thus far, next week will bring version 1.1 of Quantum Revenge which will bring a couple of cool new additions which you can see in the trailer below. ..

We're only a handful of days away from the release of the latest game in Nintendo's long-running Fire Emblem series in North America, Europe, and Australia. Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia is a full Nintendo 3DS remake of the second game in the series, Fire Emblem Gaiden, which released in Japan in 1992 for Nintendo's 8-bit hardware. Fire Emblem Echoes launched last month in Japan, and to commemorate it, mobile spin-off Fire Emblem Heroes [Free] held an event featuring one of the game's two main characters, Alm, and some of his associates. At the time, there was speculation that Nintendo was holding back some of the cast for a second event nearer to the international launch, speculation which has now proven to be correct...

Best iPhone Game Updates: 'Mini Metro', 'Red's Kingdom', 'Exiled Kingdoms', 'Subway Surfers', 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. Some really great games got solid updates this week, making it harder than most weeks to choose the best of the bunch. 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!..

It feels like just yesterday that Rodeo Stampede [Free] *ahem* stampeded onto the App Store, but in fact it was back in June of last year that it first arrived. During a time of Crossy Road-alikes galore, it was easy to see screenshots of Rodeo Stampede and think it's just another one of those, but its super unique (and super fun!) jump-from-animal-to-animal mechanic made the game stand out from the rest, and our own Rob Funnell loved the game in his review. Since that original release, Rodeo Stampede has received some of the best post-launch support I've ever seen, including adding in tons of new species of animals, special holiday events, and an entire breeding system so you could raise adorable baby animals and talk in baby talk to them. Or maybe that's just me. Anyway, the point is that Rodeo Stampede is pretty awesome, and it looks to get even better next Thursday when a new Jurassic update will add a ton of awesome dinosaurs into the mix...

ATGames' Full of Stars [Free] hit in April, and delivered some brutal gmaeplay as you tried to survive through deadly waves of asteroids, moons, and comets. But it was also particularly compelling because of the addition of narrative elements that affected your progress in addition to a permanent Blue Sector that you could upgrade over time. There was the promise of more content down the road, and that day has come only a month or so after release, as the second chapter of Full of Stars is now available. Playing as the Explorer, you'll have a new plot involving an ancient alien race, a brand new galaxy map to explore, and new hazards to deal with. Lava planets will heat your ship up and cooldown isn't instantaneous. Solar winds will throw you off course. And, are those...alien strucutres?..

As was hinted at last month, our little pal Red has gone to the casino in a new update for Red's Kingdom [$2.99] which just arrived this morning. Similar to the huge update the game received in early March, this latest update includes two new areas to explore, the fishing port called Roth Ennis and an area called Rath Crom which is home of the famous The Golden Nut casino, and more than 50 new levels to explore and solve. You can also expect to run into several new types of enemies and even some new puzzle mechanics...
