Desktop Dungeons, the award-winning unique puzzle roguelike makes its debut on iOS! Fight your way through randomly generated dungeons, collect spells, items, and loot to defeat the dungeon boss and earn gold to upgrade your Kingdom. Unlock new classes to play as, useful items to discover, capricious gods to worship, and enemies to fight. All in service of the almighty bottom line and saving your Kingdom from peril.
Desktop Dungeons packs all the challenge and reward of a dungeon crawling roguelike game into bite sized chunks of puzzle goodness. Take an Elf Warlord through the Venture Cave, defeat Aequitas the Warlock and sell his beard to your Taxidermist to afford an upgrade to your Blacksmith. Or, spend time in the game’s extensive puzzles trying to understand exactly what worshipping Taurog is all about.
“The cutest roguelike you’ll ever die to.”
Bring civilization to Sproggiwood, a story-driven, turn-based roguelike set in a humorous world inspired by Finnish mythology. Grow your civilization and plunder procedural dungeons with six unique classes. Outsmart mischievous monsters who work together in unexpected ways. No two dungeon dives are alike.

Breach TD takes tower defense one step further with an action-packed mix of real-time strategy and MOBA-like gameplay. Choose your team of powerful Guardians and create your ideal defense squadron to safeguard your realm. Upgrade your Guardians into heroic warriors to hold off the Void’s increasingly stronger beasts. Send Mercenaries to overwhelm your opponent, adding to the wave of enemies they must face or use them as extra defense on your own lane. Use the massive power of Battle Cards to shift the tide of war: such as healing (“Hand of the Ancients”), fire damage (“Fire Nova,” a fire tornado), heavy damage to a small area (“Isochronal Annihilator”), and much more.
The game came out earlier this month, but Touch Arcade has just reviewed it. And like everyone else on the planet who enjoys good games, they love it. From the 5 out of 5 star review:
Grim Fandango at it’s heart and soul is about the story, and it is an amazing one. Even if you leave the awesome developer commentary off, you can tell that talented people poured their blood sweat and tears into it. For someone completely brand new to this game, you might need some patience and at times possibly an online walkthrough to help through the tougher spots. But remember, its not the toughest game, after all you can’t die in the land of the dead. If you ever thought of playing an adventure game, this is the rosetta stone that has been out of print for too long, go get it!

Cooking Mama games are all about perfectly executing a variety of dishes. From 148Apps’s lukewarm review of the latest installment in the series:
If you’re a fan of Mama, Cooking Mama Let’s Cook is a decent approximation of the DS versions. It’s nowhere close to a replacement, though. However, if you’re new to the series it’s a reasonably good place to start with no financial risk whatsoever.
The minimalist puzzle game The Top Spot is out, and Pocket Gamer has a review. They’re not huge fans. From the review:
The developer of The Top Spot has clearly put a great deal of thought into making a simple game. The trouble is, this has been achieved to the exclusion of a great deal of fun.

Rymdkapsel, the least pronounceable game on the App Store, is getting a content update next week. From Touch Arcade:
This update brings two new modes to the game: there’s Zen mode, which eliminates enemies altogether, just allowing you to build and explore without worry of attack. The opposite of that is the new Plus mode, which is harder, better, faster, stronger. The monoliths in this mode are all designed to help you build out your base faster, though the enemies are more aggressive. Good luck with that!
Last year, Kabam entered a partnership with Warner Bros to make a Mad Max-themed game. Said game never materialized, and according to information gleaned by Gamezebo, it never will.
Steve Swasey, Kabam’s VP Head of Global Communications has confirmed that, as part of the company’s shift in focus to AAA quality mobile games, there is a big reduction in the number of games they’re attempting to produce at one time. In 2014, for example, Kabam released 12 games to mobile devices. This year they’re only aiming to release four — and Mad Max won’t be one of them.

Game Oven, the studio behind mobile titles like Fingle, Jelly Reef, and Bam Fu, is shutting its doors. The reasons cited are related to poor time management. If you study studio / game post-mortems, you may be interested to learn what challenges the team faced.
Touch Arcade has a lot of nice things to say about The Last Warlock, a turn-based strategy game that adds tons of new ideas to the genre.
The game offers you the tools to come up with your own strategy, and the odds are pretty good your ideas are going to be at least a little different from anyone else’s. Is it balanced? Well, probably not, but it doesn’t matter too much because it’s terribly fun.
It’s been a long time in the making, but it seems Mojang has finally submitted the 0.11 update for Minecraft: Pocket Edition iOS. Now we play the waiting game.
Mojang mentioned that there’ll be different ways to get skins for your character. You’ll be able to get them for free if you upload the skin from the internet (there are a gazillion skins online), you can create your own using the Minecraft: Skin Studio app [$2.99], or use one of the free skins available in game.
If Mad Max: Fury Road got your blood pumping for some more apocalyptic car-on-car action, you’re in luck. Auroch Digital is working on a digital version of Games Workshop’s Dark Future miniatures-based board game. It’s called Dark Future: Blood Red States, and it’s coming to tablets (and other platforms) later this year.
If you like one-touch games and olde timey muscular men with mustaches, you’ll probably dig Mr. Muscle. 148Apps gave it a try and came away mostly pleased. From the 4 out of 5 star review:
Mr. Muscle is a straightforward one-tap game where the goal is to last as long as possible. Sound familiar? In this instance, a bar bounces back and forth across the screen – and by extension, across a dotted line. When you tap the screen, the moving bar will split across that dotted line and each section will be absorbed into the weight on their respective sides. If you tap in the center this isn’t really a problem, but if you aren’t careful you can thrown the titular weightlifter out of balance.
