Ghouls’n Ghosts may have first landed in video arcades almost 30 years ago in 1988, but it’s finally arrived on iOS — opening it up for both a whole new generation of gamers, and anyone wanting to get a quick nostalgia boost on their commute to work.
Beloved indie RPG To The Moon has just arrived on iOS in a stunning HD, remastered version from Ragnarok Online devs XD Network.
Originally released on Steam way back in 2011, the beautifully heartwarming game tells the story of two doctors who travel back through a dying man’s memories to help fulfill his final wish — and discover why he made the wish he did.
There’s been an awakening. Have you felt it? Star Wars is back, and the return of the year’s biggest nerdfest is upon us. May the 4th is when fans of the galaxy far, far away get a chance to revel in their fandom with their fellow fans around the world. And with the next Star Wars movie mere months away, the Force is strong with this one.
Part of the festivities is the chance to get great deals on Star Wars swag, and the Cult of Mac Store is no exception. We’ve got deals on a bundle of some of the best Star Wars games ever made, a treasure chest of Rogue One collectibles, and a floating speaker worthy of Darth Vader’s desk. Everything is dramatically discounted and worth nerding out over.

We were massive fans of Alto’s Adventure, the stunningly minimalist endless runner sidescroller which arrived on iOS a couple of years back. If you can’t get enough of that game’s style, you may also be interested to hear about an upcoming iOS snowboarder, called Stomped.
Built around 36 beautifully hand-crafted levels, in which gamers must pull off big jumps and even bigger scores, Stomped looks like it could among the most stylish and fun games of the year. And it’s not even out yet!
Steve Jobs once said that it’s better to be a pirate than to join the navy. More than 30 years on, you can put that mantra to the test, courtesy of a new iOS game that’s just landed in the App Store.
