Extra! Extra! Website compiles list of free iOS games! Includes retro shooters, fantasy kingdoms, mutants, demons, and trout! Read all about it!

Fishing Superstars Believe it or not I’ve done a bit of fishing every now and then. And despite the feeling of landing a large fish being second to none, all the stuff that comes before and after than high is pretty boring. That’s why we have developers like GAMEVIL. They can take fairly dull concepts and turn them into time-eating video games like this.

Buster Spirits - Frostbite Retro-styled shooters aren’t exactly rare these days, but that doesn’t mean they can’t still be thoroughly enjoyable. Especially when they include five exclusive levels, loads of crazy power-ups, clever “bullet-grazing” mechanics, and an introductory price of absolutely nothing.

Mutant Roadkill Don’t let the title fool you; this is most definitely not a game about freaky, reanimated raccoons or deer. This is actually more of an arcade-style survival racer involving apocalyptic cityscapes and horrifically mutated humanoids. Hungry for flesh, naturally. With self-proclaimed intuitive tilt and swipe controls, as well as plenty of un-lockable vehicles, it’s a slightly misleading game that’s bound to please on a budget.

DevilDungeon Sometimes a person just wants a simple game to pass the time. Perhaps a game that involves two control inputs (tapping and swiping) and nothing but high scores to drive the action. DevilDungeon is such a game, and it’s priced just right to warrant an inquisitive look.

Enchanted Realm I’m well aware of the fact that there’s a glut of town-building free-to-play games on the App Store. However, there aren’t quite so many that involve a fantasy setting. And there are even fewer that incorporate town development along with resource gathering. Plus it looks pretty.

Pocket Army The combination of strategy game, RPG, army building, hack n’ slash action, and social elements is certainly an intriguing one. It makes Pocket Army sound pretty cool, actually. Plus it features a customizable hero and plenty of fancy social gaming type stuff. It looks pretty nice, too. The similarity in visual style to Battleheart is a little disconcerting, but I’m willing to believe it’s just “similar” and not “borrowed.”
