Here’s some good news for fans of awesome RPGs: The World Ends With You: Solo Remix, a game that was previously totally borked on devices running iOS 8, now works. From Touch Arcade:
The game that no one was sure would live or die has been fixed.The World Ends With You Solo Remix [$17.99 / $19.99 (HD)] has just gotten an update for both its iPhone and iPad versions to make it compatible with iOS 8. The updates are rolling out right now. After months of uncertainty over whether Square Enix was fixing the game, not helped by Square Enix not even knowing what was going on, the game has gotten its fix.
Gamezebo has posted their usual roundup of the best-looking games to launch on the App Store for the week. This week 12 games make the cut, including titles like Her Story, Dragon Quest VI, Sonic Runners, and more. Check out the full article to see what interests you.
Her Story is a unique game about navigating a police database and watching a witness’s testimony. 148Apps liked it quite a bit, giving it 4 out of 5 stars. From the review:
Hannah’s husband has gone missing and it is up to you to uncover the truth by sifting through the remnants of “her story.” The gameplay is super simple: just enter a word into the search bar and up to five videos will be displayed. I found it useful to take notes of words to search during the videos, then I ended up with 6 pages of notes that if read back look like the scrawlings of a madman. Each video has a time stamp so if you feel particularly enterprising you can figure out the order of every clip. There’s also an amusing minigame hidden in the Trash folder that harkens back to old Windows freeware like Mine Sweeper.

If you’re looking to beef up your summer reading library, look no further than Tin Man Games’ epic Gamebook Adventure series sale. These game / story hybrids, typically $5.99 USD each, are going for $0.99 each. That includes Lords of Nurroth, which was released just last month.
There’s been a backlash against the Confederate flag following the tragic shooting in South Carolina, and Apple has moved to take down apps and games that feature a Confederate flag in any context.
As of the writing of this story, games like Ultimate General: Gettysburg and all the Hunted Cow Civil War games are nowhere to be found. Apple is famous for reaching for the axe rather than the scalpel when it comes to political issues (like rejecting Hunted Cow’s Tank Battle 1942 for depicting Germans and Russians as enemies), so this move doesn’t come as a great surprise.
Massively multiplayer online game World Zombination put a pretty massive update together that includes new units, new guild objectives, and PvP updates. Take a look, and guard your brain.
