Looking for previews and reviews for Touch Arcade

POLYGAMePOLYGAMe Posts: 3,470Member
Hey guys,

I'm now writing for Touch Arcade and I'm on the lookout for cool stuff that might otherwise slip under the radar.

If you have a particularly cool game about to come out and would like a preview written up, flick me a PM. Same goes for anything about to launch, if you want a review.

Clearly, I cannot guarantee anything but if you have something unique or just damned awesome, I'm keen to check it out.

I'm only looking for stand-out stuff... not just another "endless runner" or "match 3" game, unless they are VERY special.

Everything I look at has to be cleared by the editor, so once again, I can't promise anything but I have seen some amazing stuff come from this community and would like to help where I can :)

Cheers!

Karl.

    Sorry, can't really help in regards to reviewing it as it's a couple of months old. Might be able to run a round up story at some stage but at this point, as the new guy, I'm just doing what I'm told and sticking to reviewing new stuff as it comes out. Does look awesome, though... Gonna grab it :)

    This is great of you Karl, you're sure to become even more popular around here now! I hope you don't get inundated with requests from new users republishing templates :D

    Why not check out my development blog?

    Haha, I'll be blunt if I do. The policy of TA is basically not to review crap, as it's easy to find crap on the App Store. Lol. So, I'm looking for those rare gems :)

    Hehe well I like to think of myself as a bit of a perfectionist so hopefully my first game will be worthy when it's done, I'll be sure to be in touch nearer the time! Good luck :D

    Cheers and good luck to you too! I've only ever had one game reviewed on TA... My first game, way back in 2010... and I don't fancy my chances of it happening again, seeing as I'm writing for them now and all that! I guess if I submit something outstanding I'd have a chance but probably best to avoid the controversy. Lol.

    @POLYGAMe Hi Karl. I've sent a review request to Touch Arcade on 27th with a promo for my new game Jet Point, but it would be great if you wanted to take a look yourself :D

    It's just been released today! I was going to post the news with some promo codes but then I noticed your message.

    Let me know if you want me to PM all the press information to you...

    Okay, have to call it there for the next few days... Have several awesome titles to check out! Once I have some more time/space I'll post here again, but I obviously can't be reviewing GS games only. Lol. Didn't expect so many pms and posts so quickly. Lol. Cheers, guys!

    @polygame congrats! That's awesome news! I'm thrilled to finally see someone with a quirky sense of humor, and someone whose games are unique (yours) become a reviewer! It'll make your reviews refreshing to read. I'm looking forward to seeing them. Can you send us a link to your future reviews? Anxious to read them. Congrats again my friend!

    Then "match 4" or "endless walker" should do the job :)
