Kicking off this week in iOS gaming was an appearance I made on the Australian games podcast, GameHugs. It’s an industry-centric podcast that explores the backstory of web sites and studios in the world of video games (and often mobile games). On the most recent episode, I get into what goes on behind the scenes running a site like TouchArcade, as well as the odd chain of events that led me to TouchArcade — including, but not limited to, getting banned from the MacRumors forums. It’s a fun story, but if that’s not your cup of tea, as usual there are always tons of other things going on in the world of iOS games.
I’ve mentioned it in previous roundups, but things are starting to get real when it comes to the impending release of iOS 11 and with it, what we’ve been calling the 32-bit app-pocalypse. We started casually compiling a list of our favorite games that have yet to be updated, which grew into this gargantuan article filled with some amazing titles that likely aren’t going to work in the future. It’s worth skimming through, as if you’ve been buying iOS games for a few years now I’d be really surprised if you didn’t own at least one of the games on the list. It might be worth one last play through before iOS 11 steamrolls everything next month.
