Each month, the iOS GAF community hosts a thread for new game releases, rumors and discussion that define the fast-moving world of iOS gaming.

The OP will contain recommended games that released during the previous month. All the games listed will have been highlighted by the GAF community in one way or another. This way you can keep tabs on the best games and at the same time curate an excellent resource to look back on to find games you may have missed.

If you're a developer who wishes to have your game featured, please talk about your game in the thread and if the GAF community at large likes the game then your wish just might be granted. Please note that there's a difference between posting about a game you made and just advertising your game with no further interaction with the community, this thread is not for the latter and such advertising behavior is frowned upon.

Penarium is set in a sinister circus arena, where contestants, much like Gladiators of old, are forced to entertain a sadistic crowd. In this frantic 2D arena arcade game, you take on the role of our quirky antihero Willy who, to survive, is forced to run, jump and avoid an array of killer death-traps. Succeed and Willy will become the Champion of Penarium. Fail and he will die in a most horrendous way, much to the delight of the baying crowd.

Like suddenly water starts to rise or boxes start to fly while you evade all those traps. Making it a fun mayhem to overcome. Controls perfecly, but you can adjust them in setting if you want. Full GameCenter integration. Also has an endless mode. Recommended for those who like this genre without doubt.

Topsoil is an original puzzle game where you grow plants and work your garden's soil.
Your goal is to harvest as many plants as you can before your garden fills up! Manage your garden by placing plants of the same type next to each other, then harvesting them together. The more plants you harvest at once, the more points you earn, and the more soil you turn over. If your garden fills up before your next chance to harvest, that's game over. Keep growing and you'll discover new seeds, tall trees, and friendly birds along the way!

There are seeds to plant that sprout to larger things which are wipers more points. That's the goal - to get the highest score possible. No story, no music, no quests, just last as long as you can. You get several "free plays" then you can watch a video ad for3 more play. Not sure if you can get more free after that but the game has a 3.99 IAP that gives you infinite plays. Overall it's good but at the same time feels pretty barebones. Perhaps more can be added to it over time.

It's really well done and addicting...if you like card games I recommend it.

Zen Pinball is teasing a huge announcement on Twitter. Multiple tweets in this vein:

Zen Studios
@zen_studios
Keep an eye out for up coming announcements about pinball! Big things are happening here at Zen!

PiNDY
@pindypinball
@zen_studios Could it finally be time to unveil Zen Pinball 3? (Or at least a new table!)

Zen Studios
@zen_studios
@pindypinball Hmmmm... you never know. 😉

Zen Pinball 3, if that's what's coming, is supposed to add the multiplayer features that Zen Pinball tested out in the stand-alone Bethesda Pinball app. it would likely add other features, improve graphics and performance and improve physics.

Hoping this is the right thread. I'm looking for a casual, idle RPG, that I can spend 5-10 minutes on (max) here and there during the day. I'm currently playing Idle Heroes (which is a rip-off of Dungeon Rush, afaik), and I'm enjoying it, but I could use one more.

Preferredly a free game, which entails building a team, teaming up with guildies etc, but doesn't require you to spend a lot of time and money in order to progress.

I'm on iOS (which you may have guessed, based on the thread :P) btw.

You might try Endless Frontier, Nonstop Knight and Tap Titans 2.

I'm not really a fan of the genre, though.

Thanks, I'll have a look at those. Already have Nonstop Knight, which was fun for a short while, but got really repetitive and boring kinda fast.

Yeah, I mean, that's the genre in a nutshell.

At some point you realize what a massive wast of time it is. It's 100% skinner box.

If you want a game you can just sink a little bit of time in whenever but still get the idle mining aspect, try Gumballs and Dungeons.

I'll cross-post this from the old thread, updated with some additional info, impressions and screens:



Gumballs & Dungeons (Free)

One of my absolutely favorite games on mobile is Rune Stone Keeper, a variation on Dungelot that I preferred.

Gumballs & Dungeons openly acknowledges these two games as the base of its design. What G&D adds to the formula is a vast collectathon/mining/upgrade element. The amount of playable character you can acquire is well over 100, there's a ton of dungeons to explore and things to upgrade. As you progress through the game you will unlock more and more features, several of which involve idle mining for resources and items. It's fun to check in throughout the day and collect your goodies.

There are many dungeons to explore, each one featuring a different theme and set of enemies, easter eggs and a unique central mechanic. The game automatically saves your place on every floor, so whether you are playing a dungeon with an end or and endless dungeon, you can stop whenever. It's perfect for quick distractions or a long session.

Characters belong to 1 of 4 factions. When you prepare for a dive you can link to up to 2 gumballs you have from within that faction, sharing the unique abilities and class features those gumballs have. It's a cool system that makes less viable characters still useful for augmenting builds.











The F2P aspect is so benign that I've yet to see a reason to spend any money unless you just want to throw the devs a bone.

Another really fun aspect of G&D is the crazy amount of fanservice nods to various video games, movies and other pop culture staples.



How could you not love a game that makes a direct reference to Rocket Slime Adventures??





The Airship is unlocked about a third into the game. This opens up a whole slew of new features like player alliances, special puzzle dungeons and airship battles against other players. It really freshens the game up and keeps things interesting.





I've been playing this game every day for two weeks and I'm not even halfway done. The content seems endless and it's all very well paced in the way it opens up features. Highly recommended!

Holy shit, that's a recommendation if I ever saw one. Going to download it right away! But yes, you're right. Idle games are mostly just a time sink, but I find them great for playing on the toilet, when out smoking or whenever you have 5-10 minutes to yourself. Hopefully G&D will be my new go-to game. Thanks!

Cool, I hope you like it!

You're gonna wanna save your Gems for mining upgrades and later for fragments. Don't use them to revive on dungeons with a finite end. On the other hand, in endless dungeons it can be well worth the gem fee to revive if you are close to beating a boss as the rewards can be substantial. Plus, after a certain amount of revives you unlock the Soul Reaper gumball. He has a passive ability to reduce the cost of all revives.

There are hidden gumballs that can be unlocked through various secret methods. Some are as simple as spending enough gold at a shop, others involve very specific criteria. There's a pretty extensive wiki for the game online.

After you get the first 3 or 4 gumballs you're going to want to be more selective about who you upgrade. Those resources start to drain your wallet fast and you'll find that some characters just aren't worth upgrading because you won't really use them. But acquiring as many gumballs as possible has big benefits in other ways. I recommend focusing on growing one faction, this will come into play when you get the airship. But you should aspire to have at least 3 for each faction as some quests will require a specific one.

Awesome OT, nice job!

Anyone here try out Super Senso? I didn't see it mentioned anywhere and it recently got onto my radar from some twitch streamers. It seems like a pretty well-polished strategy game, even though I'm not usually into strategy games at all. I played it a little bit yesterday long enough to do the daily missions and found myself enjoying it.

People are calling it the turn-based-strategy version of Clash Royale. I've never played Royale but it's a strategy game where your units are cards, and you can level the cards up by using them or getting duplicates of said card. You also have a hero that spawns at the start that is a unique unit as well. It's F2P but I don't know how P2W it is just yet since I just started. The only complaint I have about it so far, is that it took 20% off my battery and made my phone really hot in no time at all, but there are some graphics settings I can turn down that I haven't experimented with yet (iPhone 7+). It runs super smooth and looks great though.

I've been looking for something semi-addicting with daily objectives and this seems like a candidate, at least. Although at this point I kind of want to go try Hearthstone or Brave Exvius again... I'm open to suggestions on that front if anyone has any.

Also I did give that Gumballs and Dungeons game a brief spin but for some reason the English in it bothers me. Probably a really shallow reason to dismiss a game so I'll try to play it a bit more and see if I can get into it.

I have it but haven't put much time into it yet. Part of my never ending backlog. That said it seemed pretty good from what I did play.

Also, it was originally called Die by Died. While better grammatically, Dead by Death isn't much better for a title but I don't think it's from a native English speaker.

For solo play, check out Idle Mage Attack. it looks terrible but there's a good amount of depth and the incremental mechanics are incredibly well done. It has some very interesting systems in place to cater to diffferent levels of activity. I think it's the best incremental on iOS.

Avoid Tap Titans 2...an absolute money sink.

You're right - it looks terrible. But perhaps it's less of a battery drain then :)

Osmos has been updated for 64 bit support and a ton of other stuff (including multiplayer, not sure when it was added).

It's a SEVEN years old game, one of the first of the AppStore.

I'm replaying it right now and I'm having a blast once again...just unlocked all the new modes that didn't exist back in the days....every level or so they add something new.

Only con is that there are separate versions (iPhone and iPad) as was typical back in the days.

Still a great game.

Worth it for an iPhone 7 Plus owner?

I've never played it and haven't really gotten into Bioware games, but since this is considered to be such a classic and one of the better SW games, I'm curious.

Quick question for people who switch store regions / use more than one account on iOS. I remember there was this 90 day restriction earlier. Is that still in place? It only lets you download previous purchases from one account or something.

There's sooooo many versions of BBTAN as well. Any one better than others? Fun stuff.

Each one has a different mechanic based on the "bounce ball against numbered blocks" concept

I've never played it and haven't really gotten into Bioware games, but since this is considered to be such a classic and one of the better SW games, I'm curious.

it'll be great - lots of top tier SW lore & story telling, fun combat and you'll have a screen big enough to really enjoy it

Haven't been to this thread in a while. I check it out this morning a seen a fellow Clash Royale clan member's post. Damn you 8sanders. I didn't get it at first but then when you clear half the screen because you got 20 balls stuck up top, it all comes together.

Avoid BBTAN: 7YEARS. It has its moments of brilliance, but is largely just frustrating and has entirely too many ads.

ONECUE from 111% is also excellent, but an exercise in frustration. My highest score is 3. I have no idea how anyone could possibly get into the triple digits.

I stopped playing BBTAN for like 5 seconds in the last week to come here and check messages.

All I see is BBTAN and possibile other games like BBTAN.

I'm now back playing BBTAN.

My life is ruined.
I hate you all.

Interesting that you did not notice the game pop up in the Top 10 of most downloaded apps last year. Somehow I tried it back then but it could not convince me. For the better I guess when I see how desperately addicted you guys are now :p

Pitta, you mentioned that you mange your Gamecenter friends through the Lost Cities app. Bought it in the last sale as well but I am wondering how exactly you add new friends.

I never pay attention to those lists since it's mostly freemium garbage. But it's a fun little game.
