Power Rangers: Legacy Wars [Free], fresh from its showcase at Amazon's Mobile Masters esport competition, is getting its biggest update yet that will have giant Megazords fighting other giant Megazords in a, you guessed it, giant Megazord on Megazord fight. There's something about giant mechs fighting other giant mechs that gets gamers' hearts pumping faster, so I'm pretty sure those who enjoy Power Rangers will have a gigantic blast with this new update. There are four Megazords to unlock, but who they are is a secret; you'll have to collect Zord Shards to find out. And during the Megazord Alliance Wars event, you can take your Megazords to battle against other Alliances, trying to deal the most damage to opposing Megazords to add to their Alliance's score...

Well, this really isn't a Halloween surprise because we already knew that Pokemon GO [Free] was getting third generation Pokemon for Halloween, but now it's official. Niantic announced today that starting tomorrow, players will encounter Pokemon originally found in the Hoenn region of Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire, including Sableye, Banette, and others. And, since this is Halloween after all, they'll be joined by the spookier ones like Cubone, Gastly, and Drowzee. The spooky ones will be found in greater numbers during this time to ensure that players have a spooky good time. The rest of the Pokemon from Ruby and Sapphire will also join the game but starting probably around December...




Warhammer Quest 2 [$4.99] hit the App Store yesterday, and as expected, our community immediately jumped on the game. The original was fantastic, and aside from some quibbles surrounding the UI of the sequel, most people seem pretty happy with it... Unless you're running an older device on iOS 10. It doesn't seem to be happening to everyone, but it's enough to be annoying for a small part of our forum crew...

Rick and Morty is a huge cultural phenomenon, especially recently with all the talk of the Szechuan sauce "incidents," but it's also the source of the great Pokemon-like mobile game Pocket Mortys [Free] that has continued to grow ever since its release in 2016. And now, we are about to get many more characters in celebration of the TV show's third season. Specifically, starting soon and all the way into 2018, the game will receive 50 new Mortys and other characters—Teacher Rick, Working Class Rick, Street Loco Morty—along with original Ricks and Mortys unique to the game. These new characters should keep players coming back to the game, especially given the opportunity to unlock Ricks and Mortys that aren't even in the show...

Back in August we posted about pre-registrations going live for Game of Thrones: Conquest [Free], a then upcoming MMO that was super light on details beyond some brief first impressions of the soft launch. Well, it turns out that Conquest is another Game of War [Free] sort of game where players build up bases, fight others and, well, you know the drill. It's a gameplay formula it feels like we've seen a billion times now on the App Store, which is rapidly being reskinned with all and every IP imaginable...

While I think everyone was expecting the new Warhammer Quest game to be the one we were all waiting to appear last night, it'd seem Halcyon 6: Starbase Commander [$6.99] was the hotly anticipated game that was last to cross the finish line of this week's new releases. It hit the App Store this morning, and excitement is already brewing in our forums. Halcyon 6 was first released on Steam a little over a year ago now, and since then has accumulated nearly 900 mostly positive reviews...

Out Now: 'Warhammer Quest 2', 'Time Recoil', 'Game of Thrones: Conquest', 'Mmm Fingers 2', 'Campfire Cooking', 'Syllablade', 'Returner 77', 'B-Grade Renegade' and More

It's once again that time of week where we round up all the new iOS game releases of the past 7 days, and what a week we've got folks. The long awaited Warhammer Quest 2 arrived a day early and has been getting a positive reception so far, 10tons' latest top-down shooter Time Recoil has arrived sooner than I thought it would too, and Game of Thrones: Conquest is out of soft launch and now available worldwide. And that's just the tip of the iceberg. So check out the full list of games below and as always let us know in the comments section which games you'll be picking up this week!..

When Capcom launched Street Fighter IV Champion Edition [$1.99] this past July, they had already laid out plans for at least two content updates for the game that would add in 6 additional players to the roster. The first of those updates landed the very next month, adding Evil Ryu, Guy, and Gouken to the mix as well as some welcome play balancing and performance optimizations. Now today, about two months removed from the previous update, Street Fighter IV Champion Edition has received the second of those promised content updates. ..

Developer Spotlight: Layton Hawkes and 'Campfire Cooking'

It feels like we've been following the development of Campfire Cooking [$3.99] forever now through various progress updates that have been posted on Twitter. It hit the App Store this morning, and has made quite a splash on our forums. We sat down with the game's developer, Layton Hawkes, to discuss his background, how he got where he is today, inspiration behind the game, and much more...

The day is finally here, everyone; Warhammer Quest 2: The End Times [$4.99] has finally launched, and I know many (including me) can't wait to get their hands on the game. Warhammer Quest 2 is the sequel to the fantastic 2013 Warhammer Quest—a game I've spent many hours playing—and it looks like it's raising the bar across the board. In this turn-based dungeon crawling, you are the last thing that stands between the forces of Chaos and total annihilation. What you do in the game? Well, put a party together consisting of sorcerers, witch hunters, warriors, dwarfs, and all kinds of other characters, kill a ton of creatures, and grab all kinds of loot. You then use that loot to improve your party and dive into the next dungeon...

Magic: the Gathering Arena is still a ways off, with the PC beta starting next month and a release date not for some time. So, I appreciate any opportunity to see more of the game, and today was one of those opportunities. Wizards of the Coast organized a community deck-building challenge and then gave those Ixalan decks to Trump, the popular Hearthstone streamer, and NumotTheNummy to play live on Twitch. The one-hour long stream provided a great opportunity to see MTGA live without many interruptions, and so far it looks very promising, even at this early stage...

World of Tanks Blitz [Free] is doing a crossover event with Warhammer 40K, and if you like futuristic, fancy looking tanks, you should definitely hop into the game. Macgragge's Thunder, named after the home of the Space Marines, will turn your garage into a Space Marine landing zone filled with drop pods and relics. It looks pretty cool and blends perfectly with the game's interface and overall mood. The most important parts of the event, though, are the two premium vehicles, the Ultramarines Vindicator and the Ultramarines Predator, both of which look really cool and will stand out among all the other vehicles of the game...

Tank MOBA 'Panzer League' Launching Next Year

Mobile MOBAs are definitely in right now, and while everyone is waiting for Tencent's Arena of Valor to hit next month, there's another interesting MOBA coming in 2018, Panzer League, but this one replaces humans (or human-like creatures) with tanks. Panzer League, currently in soft launch on Android, is a 4v4 game where you can play solo or co-op against the AI or full-on 4v4 human players. You can pick from 18 futuristic tanks, each with its unique style of play (just like a MOBA), and you get to level up your tank after each match and equip different items that add various abilities to your tank. And, since developers need to make money, there are also cosmetic items you can buy for your tanks. The game's tanks are pretty cool, and a well-made tank MOBA can definitely be a lot of fun...

Many Minecraft [$6.99] players have been having some issues with the game after the big Better Together update (me included), primarily because post-update the game only allowed up to 6 or 8 chunks render distance. Just for comparison's sake, I usually have mine up to 14 chunks, which makes a big difference in enjoying the game and exploring unknown maps. Today, Mojang released update 1.2.3 that was supposed to fix the issue, and it has, for some. As of now, the Minecraft game on my iPad works fine, but the one on my iPhone is still stuck at 6. So, I'm guessing that the render issue is better but not remedied. I hope it gets fixed soon because it's one of those bugs that really affects how you play the game...

The Monument Valley games have managed to break out of the gaming world and into mainstream conversations, partly because of Monument Valley's appearance in House of Cards but also because for many (including Apple), they stand for everything mobile gaming can be: beautiful, perfectly designed, evocative. Monument Valley 2 [$4.99] has been very successful on iOS (topping the charts must faster than the original), and now it's time for it to find its way onto Android devices. Specifically, the game is coming to Android November 6th, as you can see at the end of the launch trailer below. The game should costs $4.99, just like the iOS version, and is definitely one you should grab if you like the genre...

New iPhone Games on Our Forums: 'B-Grade Renegade', 'Chef Wars', 'Returner 77', 'Time Recoil', 'Campfire Cooking', and More

Well, today is home to a made up holiday we definitely will not be celebrating around here at TouchArcade: National No Beard Day, the "holiday" where you're supposed to shave your beard? Getting a chocolate cupcake for National Chocolate Cupcake Day sounds much more appealing. Regardless of what holidays you are or aren't celebrating today, there's a heck of a lot of good iPhone games hitting the App Store. I'm way into Layton Hawkes' Campfire Cooking myself, but Chef Wars looks super cool, as does Time Recoil and a bunch of other games which once again I have no idea how I'm going to find time to play them all...

The app description for Campfire Cooking [$3.99] describes the game as being about the 'relaxing moments in nature'. However, don't let this claim and the game's cozy camp setting confuse you - Campfire Cooking is set to be yet another expansive, dense and highly enjoyable puzzle title from Layton Hawkes, and promises to provide some eclectic brain-teasing action in the developer's quite literally sizzling style. After how good Puzzlepops! [$0.99] was, it's no exaggeration to say that Campfire Cooking has been in the very upper echelons of my most anticipated mobile games, and thankfully the title now available to download on the App Store for only $3.99...

Wednesday is easily one of the best days of the week, and not simply because it follows the dreary, soul-destroying humdrum that Monday and Tuesday inevitably bring. Of course, beyond simply marking the middle of a laborious working week, Wednesday is the day where the App Store gets showered by so many mobile games it can be difficult to know what to do with them all. Thankfully, us at TouchArcade Towers are faced with the monumental yet majorly enjoyable task of finding the gems amongst the trash, and Time Recoil [$3.99] is certainly one such release that has caught my eye with its inventive premise and high-octane action. Being the latest game from 10tons, who you should definitely know from their previous excellent dual-stick shooter Neon Chrome [$8.99], Time Recoil is exactly what you'd expect from a developer with such a pedigree in the genre. However, with a unique twist of combo-driven slow motion gun fights, Time Recoil has a neat emphasis on strategy that distinguishes it from the crowd. After a few weeks of waiting, Time Recoil is finally available to download on the App Store for a mere $3.99...

'Mighty Battles' Adds FPS Elements to Lane-Based Strategy Games

Hothead Games, the developer of the pretty popular Kill Shot games, is bringing a different kind of game to mobile devices on November 16th called Mighty Battles. Its developers see Mighty Battles as a new take on first-person shooting and lane-based arenas. As you can see from the trailer below, the game combines Clash Royale's lane-based gameplay with first person shooting, where you try and help your troops advance by taking out the opponent's troops. This is an interesting change to the Clash Royale (or other wave-based games) formula that should help keep players more involved. In a way, it's like you took Warfriends and turned it into a first- instead of third-person shooter and made all the units move along lanes...

The time to get all spooky is drawing nearer, Hearthstone [Free] players, because the Hallow's End celebration update is live on mobile now (although it might take a bit for everyone to get it). First of all, we are getting an all-new dual class Arena Mode where all nine Heroes attend in costume. How does it work? You start an Arena run, pick a Hero and a Hero Power, and then you get to pick from cards belonging to both of the classes (and, of course, neutrals too). And we are all getting a free Arena ticket during Hallow's End, so everyone can check out this new Arena. Additionally, we are getting a special Tavern Brawl, The Headless Horseman Rides, where we get to "disguise" ourselves by using a deck of cards from several classes as well as a passive Hero Power...
