Armello [Free] from League of Geeks is a game of options, and figuring out how to deal with your opponents. You and three other opponents take turns in a day-night cycle, all the while the King of Armello is dying from corruption by the Rot. Then, this becomes a game of plotting, intrigue, and even potential alliances in the game's online multiplayer mode. The fun comes from being devious, and watching as your glorious plan starts to come together...

Okay, I know some people out there aren't going to believe me, but sometimes educational things can be fun. Sometimes fun things can be educational. Our parents and teachers weren't totally misguided. Exhibit A: logic puzzles. Are they the greatest puzzles out there? It depends on your tastes, but at the very least I expect most fans of video games to enjoy logic puzzles in some form or another. The interesting thing is that no matter how they are presented, they all come down to a set of very basic rules that can be diagrammed in a way that looks more like homework than entertainment. Throw in an element of time pressure and you've got yourself a blueprint for a fine video game...




The Elder Scrolls: Legends [Free] is ready to expand once again by returning to the mushroom-esque landscapes in Vvardenfell when Houses of Morrowind launches. This will be the biggest expansion content wise since Heroes of Skyrim. There will be 149 new cards that will be all too familiar to fans of The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. The expansion also brings various new abilities for each House. The abilities include Betray, Rally, Exalt, Plot, and more. This expansion arrives after Return to Clockwork City arrived a few months ago...

Originally dated on the beginning of the month, #WarGames [Free] from Sam Barlow (Her Story [$3.99]) is finally available on iOS. #WarGames is a reimagining of the classic 1980s movie of the same name (no hashtag in the 80s though). Kelly, played by Jess Nurse of Scandal and Grace and Frankie, is an ex military brat who wants to fix the world and can only imagine doing so through some hacking. She joins up with more international hackers to bring out world peace. Watch the announcement trailer for it below:..

Take a First Glimpse of 'Fortnite: Battle Royale' iPhone X Gameplay in the Latest Official Reveal Trailer

Unless you've been living under a rock, you'll likely be well aware of Fortnite: Battle Royale's exciting mobile reveal last week and what a huge statement this means for iOS as a gaming platform. Unfortunately, that is exactly me - it seems taking a few days of online detox has happened to coincide with the iPhone announcement of the decade. Don't fear, as I've spent the past five minutes catching up with the extensive coverage we've shared with you here on FortniteArcade, and the hype train is not slowing down anytime soon. Yesterday, the official mobile trailer for Fortnite was released, which showcases the game in all of its hilarious cartoon glory, as well as giving us a first glimpse of gameplay on the iPhone X and how the controls may work in action...

The Invite Event on iOS for ‘Fortnite Battle Royale’ Has Now Begun and You Can Sign up for It Here

Epic Games’ Invite Event for Fortnite Battle Royale on iOS has just begun. If you aren’t aware, Epic Games announced Fortnite Battle Royale for iOS and Android. Before you scoff at this, it isn’t a scaled down port or a mobile spin off game. This is the real deal and progression syncs between other platforms and mobile with players also being able to play against others on non mobile platforms. Initially, the iOS version will be available through an Invite Event and the Android version will follow in the months after. Unlike other battle royale games, Fortnite has base building and a big building component. I’m curious to see how that aspect works and controls on iOS. Watch the trailer for Fortnite Battle Royale below:..

Pre-Registrations for the Westworld Mobile Game from Warner Brothers Have Begun on iOS and Android, Full Game Releases in April

If you’ve been hyped to play the Westworld mobile game, the release date inches closer and Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment have begun pre-registrations for it today. Westworld is based on the HBO original series and is being produced by WB Games San Francisco and Kilter Films. Behaviour Interactive are the developers of the iOS and Android version that will release this year. You play as Delos Trainee who is a new hire with access to the Delos Park Training Simulation. You will be able to control everything at the Westworld park operations in a strategy simulation experience. Watch the teaser trailer for it below:..

In my near half-decade at TouchArcade, I've had the (some would say dubious) privilege of watching the social RPG genre grow out of barely-interactive card-collecters like Rage of Bahamut into the flourishing and surprisingly-varied dominant force that it is in today's mobile market. A lot has changed in that time. What was once the realm of only a few upstart publishers is now host to companies like Square Enix, Nintendo, and many more. The increased competition has had two big effects for players. First, any company that wants to launch a new social RPG needs to commit to going big or going home. Second, with so many choices out there, social RPGs have had to become more player-friendly. Today's social RPGs are better than they've ever been as a result...

Oh boy, the hours I've put into Horizon Chase [Free]. To be honest, I don't really want to know the amount of time this game has stolen from me, but its brilliant retro arcade mechanics combined with really tight controls make what is one of the most compelling racing titles on the App Store - and one that really emphasises mobile gaming's qualities in almost every aspect of its design. We loved Horizon Chase in our review around the title's launch, and have continued to adore the game as it's been updated with additional content over the years. However, just as you thought you may have been released from the game's grasp, developer Aquiris has just announced a brand new update that is sure to suck you straight back into the title's low-poly world. In contrast to the very cold weather conditions of late, the next cup in Horizon Chase is set in the sunny climate of Hawaii, and should be available to download on App Store very soon (and is available for any Android users right now)...

I only recently played the first season of Batman - The Telltale Series [Free] on the Switch after dabbling into it on iOS a while back. I quite like it and it maybe my favourite thing from Telltale after The Wolf Among Us. Batman: The Enemy Within [Free] is quite nice like the first season with a lovely atmosphere and more. The Enemy Within will conclude on March 27th. This finale episode will launch on all platforms at the same time and you can expect two finales from it. It is good to see Telltale release the finale at the same time on all platforms unlike some of the previous episodes in some of their games...

Nintendo’s first big mobile game had a fantastic reveal when it was shown off at an Apple event and Tim Cook said Mario would be coming to the App Store. Since launch, Super Mario Run [Free] has seen a few discounts for the IAP and it has also seen quite a bit of post launch support with content. Super Mario Run wasn’t a mindblowing runner but it was quite a bit of fun initially. It also featured a single IAP to unlock the full game and anyone can try out a few levels for free. The content updates so far have included new buildings, new characters, levels, an in game music player and more...

Read Only Memories: Type-M [Free] finally brings the cyberpunk, Snatcher-inspired point-and-click adventure to mobile, years after its Kickstarter project promised a mobile release. Since then, the game has seen release on pretty much every other system under the sun, including the Ouya and Vita, but mobile players have not had their chance to explore 2064 Neo-San Francisco for themselves. Now they can, with Read Only Memories: Type-M. This futuristic point-and-click adventure has you tagging along with the robotic AI Turing, who is trying to discover what happened to their creator, Hayden. By solving puzzles and interacting with people, you wind up uncovering a deeper conspiracy that goes into Hayden's disappearance...

We've been keeping tabs on EA and Maxis' The Sims Mobile [Free], with the game being in soft launch for almost a year. Well, for iOS gamers in NA, the game has finally exited soft launch and is available for purchase. But, like all freemium games based on popular IPs, there are probably a lot of you out there with one simple question: Is it worth it? Well, we've had the opportunity to check out Sims prior to its NA release and while I've had a great time so far, that enjoyment is caveated by one's toleration of freemium systems in general...

Do you love dragon guides? Are you constantly upset about the lack of availability of in-game extras? Do you sit around and think "this game is great but why is it so fricken hard?" Do you hate a well-developed story line? If this is you all day then you need to check out Kidarian Adventures [Free]. Kidarian Adventures is a zany new platformer by Russian developer Hard Slime. The game features cute graphics, customizable gear, and little cutscenes that try to keep players intrigued. The gameplay is easy going–think Super Phantom Cat, but without the polish. That being said, this game has certainly kept me entertained - mostly by shear amused confusion...

Well here's something I didn't expect to be writing in a million years: World-renowned hip hop artist Soulja Boy will be added to Lucky Kat Studio's Beat Street [Free] as a playable character. Yes, this is really happening. As the story goes, late last year Mr. Boy reached out to Lucky Kat via Twitter DM to tell the studio how much he enjoyed playing their game, and asked if it might be possible to be featured as a playable character. Of course, when you're talking about a celebrity like Soulja Boy you'd have to be crazy to say no! It also doesn't hurt that Soulja Boy fits in very nicely with the "street" aesthetic of the game. I mean heck, one of the bosses in Beat Street is just a parody of 50 Cent, having another rapper enter the fray is just par for the course. Here's Souja Boy mixing it up with some baddies in the game...

Snatcher Inspired Read Only Memories: Type M Releases on March 6th for iOS and Android, Pre-Order Available Now for Free

After announcing a port a while ago, MidBoss has finally put up Read Only Memories: Type M for pre-order on the App Store. This is a Snatcher inspired point and click (and even smell and taste) adventure that originally released on PC platforms a few years ago. It made the jump to PlayStation 4 in early 2017 before releasing on PlayStation Vita late last year. I’ve played it twice across PC and PlayStation 4 and love the aesthetic and music. This cyberpunk adventure features various aspects of augmentation, AI, and more. Watch the announcement trailer for the iOS and Android release below:..

Following its soft-launch last summer and its staggered official launch over the course of this past month, Bandai Namco has officially launched Tekken [Free] worldwide a couple of days ahead of schedule. In case you haven't been following along, this is a mobile-ized version of the classic fighting game franchise, which means it's a simplified "swipe fighter" like Marvel Contest of Champions [Free] or Injustice 2 [Free] rather than a full-fledged fighting game with virtual buttons like Street Fighter IV: Champion Edition [$4.99]. It features a huge cast of Tekken characters, each coming in a variety of classes and styles. The big differentiator in Tekken compared to other swipe fighters is its Waza Card system which sees you collecting and upgrading a variety of special move cards and then equipping up to three of them during battle. Unlike similar games which typically have 3 levels of special move per character, in Tekken you can mix and match your Waza Cards to create different fighting styles and then blend those card-based special moves into your normal swipe and tap fighting to create a variety of cool combos...

'Raskulls Online', Halfbrick's Next Real-Time Multiplayer Puzzle Game, Is Looking for Beta Testers

I have a lot of respect for iconic App Store developers Halfbrick Studios attempting to step out of their comfort zone as of late. Of course, the App Store isn't a particularly forgiving place for companies that stick to the same old holding pattern with their releases (not mentioning any names here), and developers like Supercell who keep on striving to mix things up seem to achieve the holy grail of sustained iOS success. Whether it's a conscious decision or one forced by the nature of the beast, Halfbrick's foray into AR with last year's Shadows Remain [Free] and the eclectic array of games released over the past few months underlines the Australian studio's determination not to stand still, and Raskulls Online, their latest upcoming App Store effort, continues this pattern. As the title suggests, Raskulls Online is an online, real-time multiplayer puzzle game, and appears to be an interesting grid-based take on the strategy genre. While it's still early days for Raskulls Online, Halfbrick are currently looking for any eager beta testers to help the title get one step closer to a worldwide release...

Mad Otter Games had a vision of a full-scale MMORPG that could be played at home on your PC or out and about while on your mobile devices, with the ability to jump between platforms seamlessly. The result is Villagers & Heroes [Free], which has been out on both PC and Android for quite a while but has finally landed on iOS today as well. In it you'll find all the features you'd expect from a full desktop-class MMORPG including thousands of story-driven quests, raids to battle in with your crew, mounts to ride across the vast lands, weapons and equipment that you can forge and enchant with magical items, and persistent villages where your character can live and help towards making improvements and expanding the village footprint. All of this takes place in a colorful, World of Warcraft-esque fantasy realm which you can see in the following Villagers & Heroes trailer...

'Asphalt 9: Legends', the Latest Console-Quality Racing Release From Gameloft, Has Soft Launched on the App Store

I'm not sure what surprised me more about today's surprise Philippines soft launch release of Asphalt 9: Legends - the fact that there have been nine mainline Asphalt games, or that the veteran racing series still looks this good. While the racing franchise didn't make its iOS debut until Asphalt 4, each successive iteration has normally gone some distance to providing a meticulous, fast-paced and flashy graphical showcase for the device, and hot off the heels of Feral's excellent GRID Autosport [$9.99], Gameloft are back to try and reclaim their throne. Fans of the previous entry in the series may know what to expect from this upcoming sequel, but Asphalt 9 looks like it's throwing even more content, configurable options and crazily fast racing action into the mixer, and the first trailer for the game shows how stunning it looks in motion. While no worldwide release date has been specified as of yet, today's Philippines soft launch is a perfect chance to try out Gameloft's next generation of mobile racing game...
