Next week, Valve is launching a „Steam Link“ app for iOS and tvOS, allowing users in the Apple ecosystem to play Steam games streamed from a host Mac/PC (using either a 5GHz network or a wired Ethernet connection) onto an iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV. In advance of the app’s launch, our sister site TouchArcade got the chance to go hands-on with Steam Link and came away entirely impressed by the quality of gaming that can come out of Valve’s app.

December historically has been the busiest month for iOS game releases, and so far this year has not disappointed.

Apologies for missing last week’s iOS gaming roundup, but I’ve got a good reason: I was in Jordan judging Middle Eastern and North African mobile games for the International Mobile Gaming Awards (IMGA). It’s an organization that for fourteen years now has been hosting international competitions looking for the best mobile games.
