Crazy Taxi City Rush [Free] has gotten its first major post-release content update. The big new addition is the fourth district, Hills, which takes place in a Hollywood-esque area. This section is roped off to those who have not completed all the Uptown HQ missions, so this is aimed for people who have played through most of the game already, and want more to do. But I suppose that's the point of any update. Those who do have it can play new HQ missions for characters, and explore the new sights...

It's been a long while since we've seen an update to Beamdog's iOS version of Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition [$9.99], but finally, version 1.3 has arrived, and it brings with it a ton of fixes and changes, including one of the most requested and significant changes yet: Fixing the colors on Drizzt and giving him his signature scimitars. Yes, at long last, the legions of fans and general iOS gamers can rest easily knowing one of pulp fantasy's biggest characters is now faithfully transcribed in video game format. Oh, and they've also added support for iPhone, if anyone was asking about that...

Well, it's been a long and crazy ride for the Infinity Blade trilogy, as the promised last update for Infinity Blade III [$6.99], Kingdom Come, is out today, with the game on sale for $2.99. This update brings new story content that wraps up the game, as Siris confronts one of the final deathless, Lelindre. As well, there's a new area to play in, Nafusaan. This is a frozen wasteland with new loot to get, and the King of Dragons, Dragoor, to fight...

You might recall that with The Walking Dead: Season One [Free], we did something of an unorthodox review due to the episodic nature of the game. There was a basic overview that was appended to with a review of each episode as they released, with the score adjusting appropriately. As it worked pretty well last time, we'll be doing the same thing here. I'll do my best to avoid any serious spoilers for the current season, but I'm going to talk frankly about the first season, so if you haven't finished it yet, consider yourself warned about possible spoilers...

It feels like we've been waiting for this forever, but the massive version 2.0 update for the classic JRPG Lunar Silver Star Story Touch [$6.99] is now available in the App Store. Originally released as Lunar: The Silver Star on Sega CD back in 1993, an enhanced remake of the game launched in Japan for the Sega Saturn in 1996 and later in North America on the PlayStation as Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete. The iOS version is based off of that enhanced remake, and launched in September of 2012–just in time to miss out on being enhanced for Apple's then-new 4-inch widescreen of the iPhone 5...

Notorious indie auteur Kepa Auwae posted some details on our forums regarding the next update to Rocketcat's latest Real Game™, Wayward Souls [$6.99]. Backing up a bit, if you haven't played Wayward Souls (here's our review) yet, you really should. It's a great permadeath action RPG with just enough roguelike trimmings to make people who get really mad when you refer to something as a roguelike only slightly miffed. There's multiple classes to play as, tons of content to go through, and a really cool power curve that gives purpose to multiple attempts as you slowly unlock character abilities...

Twitch's mobile support has so far just been limited to Asphalt 8 [Free] from Gameloft, but finally a second game supports live streaming to Twitch: Heroes of Order & Chaos [Free], also from Gameloft. This is perhaps the most appropriate game to get Twitch streaming yet, as MOBAs are the bread and butter of Twitch popularity, with League of Legends and Dota 2 being two of the most popular games being streamed at any given time. And as a 5-on-5 MOBA with lengthy matches, there's plenty of reason to stream this game on Twitch to interested audiences – and now it's possible straight from the game, with camera and microphone support...

Gameloft's over-the-top arcade racer Asphalt 8 [Free] has just received a major update adding in a brand new track, some new vehicles, a new Season with 74 new events, and improved Twitch streaming integration. First off is the new track, set in the Middle Eastern city of Dubai. It features plenty of shiny skyscrapers, lots of interesting jumps, and no doubt some secret shortcuts to discover. Along with the new track are 5 new vehicles to race, including a Mercedes Benz Biome concept car and the Nissan GT-R NISMO. Here's a brand new trailer showing off the Dubai track and all the new cars...

It's been about a year since Re-Logic's Terraria [$4.99] made its way to the iOS App Store courtesy of 505 Games, and today 505 has announced on the official Terraria blog that a major update for the game should be arriving this week. The update will add the oft-requested "Hard Mode" which is found in the desktop and console versions of the game. Hard Mode is activated by defeating the Wall of Flesh enemy, which will then "transform" the game adding "new biomes, new bosses, 20+ new enemies, 100+ new items, New NPCs" and will allow you to "Use the Pwnhammer to destroy Demon Altars and create new ores."..

This past December, Namco Bandai released Ridge Racer Slipstream [$2.99], a new mobile version of the long-running arcade racing series that culled together vehicles and tracks from previous Ridge Racer games. For the most part, the game was very good: it looked great visually, had a ton of single-player content, and most importantly it "felt" like a proper Ridge Racer game, something that was sorely missing from the series' last outing on iOS. The negative aspects of the game were mostly due to its pay model. Slipstream was a paid game, but featured the trappings of a free to play title, like two forms of in-game currency (but thankfully no timers). On the bright side, all content was obtainable without paying anything beyond the initial price, though some patience and some extreme racing skills were required. Overall though, we thought Ridge Racer Slipstream was pretty darn good...

Whether you love it or hate it, one thing you can say for certain about the Infinity Blade series is that it's been well supported over the years. Each entry in the series has seen numerous post-release updates that add brand new content to the game and take advantage of the latest Apple hardware. The most current game in the series, Infinity Blade III [$6.99], has seen some particularly strong updates since its release and our initial review back in September of last year. There was the Soul Hunter update that landed the following month, the Ausar Rising update in December, and the return of Ryth with the Blade Masters update this past May. And that's not even counting the more minor updates like holiday helms, Clash Mob events, and even 3D-printed figurines...

The last major competition for the Street League 2014 season is this Sunday, the Super Crown Championship, and that means that the official game of the league True Skate [$1.99] has gotten a new downloadable course and is on a freebie promotion for the next week. The new course is the Super Crown course from last year's SLS Championship, and like the last two SLS courses that were added to the game it's a fun level filled with interesting objects to skate and there's a neat feeling about being able to skate something you've seen in real life before (or on TV, at least). Also like the previous DLC courses, the 2013 Super Crown course will run you 99¢ to download...

Back in February, video gaming personality Seanbaby and his small studio Ninja Crime released Calculords [$2.99], and awesome mashup of card-battling, lane defense and math. Yes, math, like mathematics. Multiplication, addition, subtraction… all that stuff. Despite the potential for Calculords to be educational, the various elements of the game clicked together in a brilliant way, and we really enjoyed it in our review. There were a few drawbacks to the game, though. Most notably it wasn't a "true" widescreen game so it had borders on 4-inch iOS devices, and it felt a little light on content with no multiplayer and a limited number of AI opponents to face in the campaign...

Force of Habit's Toast Time [$2.99] was well-beloved last year, nabbing a 5-star rating from us. This arena shooter took some notes from Super Crate Box [$1.99] but really stood out as its own original action game. Now, six months after the game's iOS release, Toast Time is getting a new level pack in a free update, releasing on August 27th...

If you're a big Star Trek fan then this should interest you: YesGnome's simulation game based on the iconic series, Star Trek Trexels [Free], has added brand new content based on Star Trek: The Next Generation, and to celebrate they've dropped the price of the game to free for the first time since releasing last December. I have to admit that when Star Trek Trexels first came out, I became pretty obsessed with it. The game has a heavy Tiny Tower vibe as you slowly build out your own Starship Enterprise with various types of rooms and put together a crew to run it all. As you explore the galaxy, you'll embark on missions of diplomacy, scientific discovery, and of course combat. It's certainly not the deepest experience in the world, but it's oddly compelling and does great Star Trek fan service...
