PAX East: Harmonix Announces 'Record Run', a Runner that Utilizes Your Library of Music

Harmonix, the creators of Rock Band and Dance Central, first appeared on the iOS scene with the weird video app VidRhythm [Free] and while we thought it was great in our review it wasn’t really a game per se. Today, during Pax East, the announced a new mobile game called Record Run. It’s an endless runner that uses your library of songs. As you’ve probably guessed by now you’ll jump, run and slide to get as far as you can, collecting vinyl records along the way...

When Transport Tycoon [$6.99] came out on iOS, I was thrilled. In my review, I stated how happy I would be, and how happy fans of the series might be, if Rollercoaster Tycoon were to come out on iOS...

If you found yourself excited for the teaser trailer Gameloft released last month for their upcoming movie tie-in mobile game The Amazing Spider-Man 2, then check out this latest trailer which gives a better look at the game itself. Spoiler alert: Spidey slings lots of webs and beats the crap out of a whole lot of bad guys. It looks pretty cool, check it out...

Earlier this morning at PAX East, Blizzard announced a new single player campaign for their breakout free-to-play card battler game, Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft. The new mode is called “Curse of Naxxramas" and takes place in an ancient necropolis of the same name. This will be the first bit of single player content for Hearthstone (not counting the game's brief tutorial or practice rounds against the AI)...

Donut Games has been around the iOS scene for quite a while now, and while they might not be the first name you think of when it comes to big hits on the platform, they've actually been quite successful with a number of their games. One of their first games, Monkey Flight [$1.99], proved to be a pretty big hit with its combination of gassy monkeys and gameplay somewhat reminiscent of Angry Birds [$0.99], and has enjoyed many updates in the half decade it's been out. Beyond the fact that monkeys are generally a pretty big crowdpleaser and that flinging animals at things is something of a national sport for mobile gamers, Monkey Flight also gave buyers a great value for a reasonable price. There are a ton of levels, and updates only added more, along with new modes of play...

America's pastime. Butt-patting. A League of Their Own? Whatever word, phrase or movie may make you think of baseball, the sport has been played, changed, and even endured a lockout. But one facet has remained the whole time: it's fun to play, less so to watch. R.B.I. Baseball 14 [$4.99] is a modern take on what was a classic NES game almost thirty years ago. The original is known not just for being a fun game, but for being licensed by the MLBPA, which resulted in the first console game to use actual player names. Developed by MLB Advanced Media, this updated version stays faithful to the original...

'Age of Empires: World Domination' Announced for iOS, Coming this Summer

It was back in the middle of 2013 that we first heard about Microsoft’s plan to bring the Age of Empires Franchise to iOS. We originally thought it would be a port of the free to play Age of Empires Online but instead they’re creating an entirely new game in the series. Called Age of Empires: World Domination and developed by KLabs Games, it features known world leaders and historical characters. It’s unclear whether this is a true RTS or a Clash of Clans-like strategy game. Make up your own opinion with this trailer that showcases a few seconds of gameplay:..

'Magic 2015 - Duels of the Planeswalkers' Coming to iPad this Summer, Playable at PAX East

It's getting close to that time of year again, as the latest edition of Magic: The Gathering - Duels of the Planeswalkers is on the horizon according to a post at IGN. In June of 2012, Magic 2013 [Free (HD)] was released for the iPad and we really liked it a lot. It lacked the robustness of the physical card game, but served as a perfect gateway to get people into the whole world of Magic, and the digital version was a perfect way to get your Magic fix on the go. Last June Magic 2014 [Free (HD)] kept the experience mostly intact, but did offer some nice new features. Magic 2015 sounds like it will again be more of a good thing, but IGN notes some of its new features will include "the ability to build customized decks, a more robust deck builder, and premium booster packs." Here's a brief teaser...

IceFlame's 'Soccer Rally 2' Hits the App Store on April 24th

Developer IceFlame Ltd struck an odd but incredibly fun mashup when they combined soccer with rally cars in 2012's Soccer Rally [$0.99], and they've been working diligently on a sequel ever since. The last time we checked out Soccer Rally 2 it was back during GDC last year, and we really liked what we saw. Soccer Rally 2 takes the core formula of the first game but expands on it in just about every way. We've been waiting patiently for Soccer Rally 2, and today IceFlame has announced that the wait won't be too much longer as the game is set to launch on April 24th. Here's a brand spanking new trailer...

Beavertap Games Reveal 'Mikey Hooks' Sequel 'Mikey Boots'

In a wise move of hyping up a game before Hodappy Bird swoops in and steals the show, the brain trust behind Beavertap Games have released a teaser trailer for the upcoming sequel to Mikey Hooks, Mikey Boots:..

In case you missed the drama, following a botched launch that felt like a soft launch hardcore iOS gamers did what they always do: Download games using their New Zealand accounts the second they hit the App Store and start sharing their experiences via text descriptions, screenshots, and videos in our forums. FOX's reaction to this was to issue copyright claims, close Twitch channels, and basically swing their legal flail at anyone they could. Many TouchArcade community members were caught in the crossfire, but thankfully at least Twitch has come to their senses and restored the channels that were suspended as a result of FOX's legal hissy fit...

For better or for worse, Hitman Go left everyone surprised when it was announced in February that the next Hitman game was going to be a mobile title. We knew there were plans to bring the Hitman universe to our pockets but we never expected a totally new puzzle game...
