Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft is Available on the U.S. App Store Right Now – Gogogogo!

Posted by on April 16th, 2014
iPad Only App - Designed for iPad

For a while we just had to sit back while PC gamers got to enjoy it. Then they teased us with a soft launch. Now the wait is finally over – Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft is available on the US App Store!

This is normally where I’d speak a bit about how neat it looks and how popular it is, but it’s freaking Hearthstone. You deserve a medal for sticking around this long rather than going straight to the App Store to download it. But don’t worry, I won’t keep you.

You can grab Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft for the iPad now, for free.

Season 3 of Zombies, Run! Starts Right Now – Includes Over 60 New Weekly Missions and More

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad
Our Rating: ★★★★½ :: TERRIFYING EXERCISE FUN :: Read Review »

Zombies, Run! has been giving iOS users a reason to keep running (i.e. zombies) for a while now. So long, in fact, that the app has just begun its third season of content.

The new 3.0 update includes over 60 new missions that will be doled out weekly, a new Statistics view that makes it a snap to see all that delicious running data, a Codex to chronicle your collection, interval training, and an all-new look.

“It’s been wonderful to go back to Abel Township for the creation of this new season of the game,” said Naomi Alderman (co-creator and lead writer) in a press release, “We’ve got plot twists galore ahead, as Runner Five has to deal with bigger enemies, more dastardly plots, and of course the constant presence of slavering zombies eager to chomp down on human flesh.”

You can grab the updated Zombies, Run! off the App Store right now. Please note that if you’ve already purchased the Race Missions packs or Season 2, you should tap “Restore Purchases” from within the app.

Knights of Pen & Paper is a weird and wonderful “make your own” sort of RPG adventure that’s as fun as it is funny. And right now it’s free!

For a limited time – specifically from today through 11:59pm PDT next Monday – you can grab Behold Studios’ fan letter to table top RPGs for nothing. Seeing as it’s a pretty great game, I’d suggest doing just that.

ClutchPlay Games is using Tax Day as an opportunity to release the trailer for its upcoming game Skullduggery!, which is due out in the Fall.

The game is a physics puzzler. According to the release, Skullduggery! combines the physics flinging of Angry Birds with the action coin-collection of Jetpack Joyride and the puzzle-platforming of, well, a puzzle-platformer.

“You can’t take it with you” they said. Well, they were wrong! “Deadbeats” have been taking their riches with them to the afterlife for centuries and it’s the job of the InFERnal Revenue Service — and its army of semi-organic autonomous skulls — to collect!

Using the elasticity of your own brain, flick yourself around the fortresses of the afterlife’s biggest deadbeats. Slow time to avoid deadly obstacles and pull off awesome trick shots to collect riches. Discover hidden caches, slip past surly guards, and much more.

Don’t be a Pygon, Download Horn Right Now While it’s Still Free

Our Rating: ★★★★½ :: ENGROSSING :: Read Review »

Phosphor Games’ Horn is a pretty great adventure that most iOS gamers would do well to experience, and it’s currently free.

If for some odd reason you haven’t helped the young apprentice save his village (and the rest of the world, really), well there’s no time like the present is there? And if that’s not enough, there’s also the challenge modes that will keep you busy well after the main story has concluded.

For the time being, you can grab Horn off the App Store for free. I’d suggest you avoid dawdling.

On our latest Twitch stream, we’ll be playing a pair of minimalist arcade games, one that just got a big content update in Pivvot, and another that was inspired by it in 15 Coins. Whitaker Trebella, creator of Pivvot, will discuss the new modes added to the game and the challenges of designing them. As well, Engaging Games’ Blake Johnson will discuss his studio’s own 15 Coins, and how games like Pivvot helped inspire it.

Watch the embedded stream below when it goes live at 7:15 PM CDT or click here to watch on Twitch and chat with the developers. Highlights will be available after the show.

Shenandoah Studio has become one of the go-to developers for war games on iOS, with Battle of the Bulge and Drive on Moscow both being extremely well received so far. And now we’ve got Desert Fox: The Battle of El Alamein to look forward to.

Desert Fox takes the fight to the (mostly) desserts of North Africa, with players needing to guide their troops through fields of wire and mines while also deciding whether to go on the offensive or hang back and refit. Go offensive and you might get the drop on the opposing side, but a refit could allow you to bolster your numbers and take advantage of faction-specific perks.

Shenandoah’s Desert Fox: The Battle of El Alamein will be arriving on the App Store this Spring.

I think it’s fair to say that Dungeon of the Endless has been getting a bit of attention as of late. I mean it’s a great-looking game, and from what I played over the weekend it’s quite fun and challenging as well. Too bad it’s only going to be released for home computers… or is it?

Now before getting too excited, you need to know that nothing is set in stone yet. However, I was informed that the team at Amplitude Studios has actually been looking in to bringing their game to tablets. I mean it would make sense, really. The interface seems like it would be a perfect fit for the iPad. Of course a lot can happen in the course of trying to release a game on a new platform.

We’ll be sure to keep you updated if/when Dungeon of the Endless for the iPad is officially confirmed/shot down.

Yeti. Sasquatch. Wendigo. The Abominable Snowman. Bigfoot. Call them whatever you want, but they’re awfully elusive creatures. At least they were. Soon you’ll be able to track these misunderstood beasts down on your own personal photo safari thanks to Bigfoot Hunter.

Bigfoot and all his fuzzy friends are all out there in the world somewhere, going about their woodsy business and being all camera shy. It’s up to you to track them down and take their picture with your iOS device. Of course it’s not quite as simple as spinning around with your iPhone and clicking the shutter at the right time. Each stage will give you three shots to snap a worthwhile photo of your target, but it has to be in a specific pose for the images to be worth anything. Bonus points are also available if you can keep things in focus and framed well (which is a lot tougher than it sounds). A swipe is included as well, for those moments where you just don’t have the room to whip the top half of your body around all the time.

Bigfoot Hunter will be declaring open season (for snapshots) soon.

Today Tempo AI, makers of Tempo Smart Calendar, and Speek, the team behind the conference call app Speek have announced a partnership.

The two developers are combining their talents to bring Speek functionality to Tempo, thus giving users the ability to create conference call events and even dial into them directly from within the calendar app.

Speek lets users avoid the hassle of entering a phone number and fumbling around to find their PIN, by providing a web-based conference call line that is always open. Meanwhile, Tempo AI’s technology uses machine learning to understand thousands of different conference call formats, and dial users into conference calls in one tap.

You can check out the new Tempo Smart Calendar app with Speek functionality right now on the App Store.

Wizards of the Coast’s latest (and by association, also the greatest) digital CCG, Magic 2015: Duels of the Planeswalkers is just around the corner. Singleplayer is back in this latest edition, as well as full multiplayer support across all versions (iPad, PC, etc). So no more staring longingly at PC features! There’s also an improved tutorial that should make it a bit easier for new players to figure out what they’re doing.

However the biggest change, and perhaps the one that will please and excite fans the most, is the new and vastly-improved deck manager. Now players will be able to build, customize, and otherwise manage a total of up to 30 different decks. The management itself has also been heavily tweaked, with a heck of a lot more sorting options, automatic suggestions based on your current deck’s strengths, and the ability to customize your land cards if you so desire. It even analyzes and displays your deck’s “stats,” so new players can get a better idea of its overall power, speed, and so on.

Magic 2015: Duels of the Planeswalkers will be releasing on iOS soon for free.

Temple Run 2 Updated with Clouds, Wheels, and Easter Eggs

Our Rating: ★★★★½ :: STILL RUNNING :: Read Review »

Looks like Temple Run 2 has just been updated for Easter, which means you can expect lots of brightly-colored eggs in your future.

No really, there are special Easter artifacts in the game now that turn gems into eggs, as well as some goofy bunny-themed gear to purchase for your characters. But it’s not all about eggs and chocolate – the new update also adds a prize wheel that will pop-up whenever you use a Save Me, and you can now earn a free Save Me by watching a video at the end of your run. Also there was mention about iCloud support.

You can grab the updated version of Temple Run 2 off the App Store right now for free.
