Harley Quinn announced for Teeny Titans

Harley Quinn Teeny Titans

It has been a big year for Pokémon and Pokémon parodies on the Apple App Store. Adult Swim got the ball rolling in January by releasing its own Pokémon clone called Pocket Mortys, then Cartoon Network and Grumpyface Studios got in on the fun by releasing Teeny Titans. Both games are a lot of fun and highly recommended, especially when you rather catch 'em all sitting on your couch than by going outside to play Pokémon GO. Adult Swim has been doing a great job of keeping Pocket Mortys updated with new content, and Grumpyface announced this weekend that it also has big plans for Teeny Titans.

Pokémon GO not optimized for tablets

Pokémon GO

Pokémon GO has been spotted on Google Play and the New Zealand App Store. Several sources are reporting that the long awaited augmented reality game from Niantic is set to land on the US App Store sometime today. However, iPad owners may want to check the official New Zealand App Store description, as the game is not optimized for tablets. This does not mean Pokémon GO does not support the iPad. It actually supports all devices running iOS 8.0 or later, but the game is better played on your iPhone. This is because the idea of Pokémon GO is to be able to capture Pokémon in the real world. The app sends a vibration to your device when a Pokémon is nearby and you must use a Poké Ball to catch it. You already run the risk of looking silly walking around your neighborhood catching Pokémon, but it will be even worse if you're doing it on a 9.7-inch tablet.

Monster Hunter Freedom Unite returns to the App Store

Monster Hunter Freedom Unite

Apple has a premium game problem. Too many titles, such as Bioshock, have been pulled from the App Store due to incompatibility issues. It's hard enough to convince people to spend several dollars on a mobile game, and stories of broken unsupported titles plaguing the App Store does not make the task any easier.

Popular board game Twilight Struggle now available for the iPad

Twilight Struggle iPad

Here's a game we missed during last week's new App Store releases, the popular strategy board game, Twilight Struggle is now available for the iPad. Twilight Struggle snuck its way onto the App Store after being funded on Kickstarter and releasing to Steam in April. The game has earned a Very Positive rating on Steam, but has only managed a 3 star rating on the App Store. This could be due to a few bugs that have already been fixed in early updates, so you may want to read through some customer reviews before dropping $8 on the iPad version.

Hero Siege returns to App Store, still experiencing issues

Hero Siege: Pocket Edition

The popular roguelike PC game Hero Siege is back on the Apple App Store and Google Play, but you're going to need 2GB of RAM to play it.

Hero Siege: Pocket Edition has had a rough time on mobile devices. The game was pulled from the App Store twice since the release of the iPhone 6s, but it is finally back with new DLC from the PC version, an online multiplayer option and 7 acts to fight through. The App Store description notes that the "game does not work on devices that have less than 2GB of RAM memory such as iPhone 6 and older." This should include both iPad Pro models, the iPad mini 4, both iPhone 6s models and the iPhone SE, but according to some App Store comments the game is having issues on all iPhone models. We have not confirmed this, but you may want to read through some of the user comments before buying the game.
