Light and dark, sun and shadow… the classic metaphors for life and death. Except, in Felix the Reaper ($3.99), they are not just metaphors, they are also the basic premise of the game. Players will guide Felix, a new field Reaper in the Ministry of Death, as he orchestrates ever more elaborate deaths, intent on impressing his lady-love in the Ministry of Life, Betty. The catch? The two may never meet—Felix must remain in the shadows, while Betty dances in sunlit meadows.
Back in June, I reviewed Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc ($15.99) which is the first entry in Spike Chunsoft’s beloved Danganronpa franchise. It debuted in the West on PS Vita and was followed by Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair ($15.99) in 2014 which was also on PS Vita. Both of these games have been ported since to PC and eventually PS4 before finally arriving on mobile in as Anniversary Editions on both iOS and Android.
Over the last few years, Annapurna Interactive have brought PlayStation classics like Journey and Flower to iOS in addition to new games that are all essentials like Florence, If Found…, and Donut County. Last week, another PlayStation classic hit iOS (and PC) in the form of the Giant Sparrow developed The Unfinished Swan ($4.99).
Hello everyone, and welcome to the week! It’s time once again for our look back at the noteworthy updates of the last seven days. The big news this time is probably that big old PUBG Mobile refresh, but there are lots of other games to check out along with it. There are even a few Apple Arcade games in here. I get the feeling some of them are half-heartedly shifting towards being service games, but I guess time will tell on that one. Of course, you can keep an eye out for updates yourself using AppShopper or by participating in the TouchArcade forums. This weekly summary is just here to fill you in on the things you might have missed. Let’s go for it!

A couple of weeks back Bethesda released a couple of awesome new updates to their awesome 25th anniversary editions of DOOM ($4.99) and DOOM II ($4.99) which added in a variety of new features across all platforms. Except that on iOS and Android the update wasn’t so awesome because it was actually totally broken. By that I mean that a new virtual control scheme was displaying incorrectly and completely blocking the view of the game, making it essentially unplayable. This was not good, and definitely not awesome. Bethesda acted quickly in pulling the games from the App Store while they got to the bottom of what was causing all the non-awesomeness. Well it seems they’ve figured it out and both DOOM and DOOM II have returned to the iOS and Android App Stores complete with that awesome new update that finally is actually awesome.
