News: More Temple Run 2 and Power Hover

Temple Run 2: Frozen Shadows

I don’t get around to posting news much because I’d rather spend my time playing and reviewing games.  But, as a self-proclaimed infinite runner addict I felt there were a couple of items this week that I should pass on to the loyal fans of TouchMyApps.com.  First of all, unless you’ve chosen to completely ignore the “this is what’s popular” section of every news and review site you’re at least familiar with Temple Run 2.  And if you haven’t yet tried it, you really should.  In case you haven’t been properly motivated yet, maybe this latest update will help.  Released on December 2nd, the new version of one of the premier mobile infinite runners added a new world called Frozen Shadows.  Not only does this foray into an icy realm look incredible, but it adds a slick new snowboard to the mix as well as some aggressive moneys that not only follow you but jump out at you from the sides of the course.  Plus, according to the developers this is only the first in a new series of updates that will launch sporadically throughout 2016, reaffirming Imangi’s commitment to their products.

A Day In The Woods Gets Spooky For Halloween

20151019-day-in-the-woods

One of my biggest joys as a reviewer is being able to report about games on the App Store that stand out from the pack, and A Day In The Woods is just such a game.  You can check out my review here: To Grandmother’s House We Go.  To celebrate the Halloween season, RetroEpic Software has added a Halloween themed skin (called, appropriately enough, a “season” within the game).  Unlike the other seasons in the game which have to be unlocked via collecting stars, this one will be available immediately once you’ve updated after the October 22 release of the new version.  If you don’t already own the game, RetroEpic has temporarily knocked a dollar off of the game’s price as well.  You can download it here:

A Day In The Woods RetroEpic Software, A Day In The Woods (TMA Review) – $3.99

The sale only lasts until Halloween, so grab it while you can.

Tin Man Games Delivers The Four Leaf Clover Of Gamebook News

20151006-tin-man-games-logo

I’ve never hid the fact that I love the combination “choose your own adventure” / RPG style of entertainment that has come to be known as the “gamebook adventure”.  It’s also common knowledge if you’ve been with me long enough that my favorite developer in this genre is Tin Man Games.  They’ve been developing this form of electronic entertainment since 2010, and based on their latest announcements they have no intention of slowing down.  That’s great news for fans like me.

Unkilled Rises To The Challenge

20150929-unkilled-1

Madfinger Games has been on the iOS scene since 2009, and I’d say they’ve got the first / third person shooter formula down pretty good at this point.  It started with Shadowgun, which was one of the few third person shooters I’ve really gotten into on any platform, and then they moved to the Dead Trigger series.  Now they’ve unleashed Unkilled on us, and it’s clear they’ve refined the game mechanics they established in their previous zombie franchise.  Apparently I’m not the only one that feels this way, because the game has been downloaded more than 3 million times since its release.

Colopl Gearing Up To Tell A Rune Story

20150924-colopl-logo

Colpol might not be a household name in America, but they’ve certainly been busy on the App Store with more than 100 games available for download.  I’ve actually mentioned several of their games in my “10 App Store Games To Watch” articles over time.  One thing I’ve noticed about their catalog is they seem to focus on simple casual games, which is perfectly fine for a mobile market.  It looks like their starting to expand their scope, however, both in content and location.  Colopl is gearing up to open a North American division of their company, and their first release is going to be an action / RPG called Rune Story.

Do you play cross-platform action / RPG Taichi Panda?  Or maybe you’re just a fan of up and coming UFC fighter Ronda Rousey.  Either way, if you haven’t seen it yet, they’ve been featured in a pretty cool TV ad promoting the game and her fondness for it.  Better yet, for those of you that like behind the scenes goodies, here’s a short video of how the commercial was made:

Space Food Truck – Help One Man Left Realize Their Portable Vending Desires

20150721-sft-1

The developers of the awesome “dodge ‘em all” series Tilt To Live and the free-to-play strategy game Outwitters are at it again.  This time they’re taking on the galaxy with Space Food Truck, a quirky combination of Star Trek and Diner Rush.  Okay, it’s really not like either of those things, but I bet that got your attention.  Your mission, should you choose to accept it, it to scour the galaxy for the perfect ingredients to make the best dishes to serve all your clients.  It will take the combined efforts of all four of your crew members, which can conveniently be controlled by multiple players.  You can play the game solo, but the optimal configuration is to have one person control each crew member.  The game is conceptually complete, but the good folks at One Man Left Studios are coming to Kickstarter for your help.

Update: Streetfood Tycoon from Kuyi Mobile better than ever

20150713-streetfood-tycoon

Streetfood Tycoon was always one of my favorite street vendor time management games, but leave it to Kuyi Mobile to feel like they need to make it even better.  There was already plenty to serve, tons of fun customers and lots of goals to meet.  This time around they’ve decided to tackle pop culture, new challenges and even pay homage to their homeland.
