Gameloft has just blogged about their surprise app sales (grab them while you can!) starting yesterday (Feb 24th). Their blog post is over here.
Now, Gameloft has always produced high quality games and there’s a little rivalry going on between them and EA so this announcement is to be expected given that EA recently had a sale.
The list of Gameloft offers on sale for the iphone is pretty cool and I am sure there is something for everyone.
Big Fish Games, publishers of critically acclaimed games like Everest: Hidden Expedition and Drawn: The Painted Tower comes a similar title that employs the familiar finger tapping search for objects on screen, this time wrapped within the story of mystery and intrigue set in a 19th century town encumbered with a secret shrouded behind what appears on the surface to be sinister overtones.
I have always been a fan of brick breaking games, ever since the good old days of playing Breakout and Arkanoid on consoles like the Atari 2600 and my original Apple II+. Since that time, I have enjoyed watching this genre develop and grow into a more sophisticated arcade platform. As such, I was absolutely thrilled when we were contacted not long ago by the developers of the latest entrant into this genre, Atomic Ball HD. The developers were kind enough to send along a copy of the game for me to check out, so let’s go ahead and dive right into it.
As a fan of both videogames and jigsaw puzzles, I am always excited to see a puzzle game hit the App Store. The high resolution touchscreens on Apple's iOS devices naturally lend themselves toward the concept of a 'virtual jigsaw puzzle.' Here's where the game 'Puzzle Me!!!' comes in. The app is marketed to children and adults alike, and boasts 50 unique puzzles, each with four difficulty settings to conquer. That said, I must make something abundantly clear: the game is almost punishingly easy. Even on the hardest difficulty setting, a puzzle can easily be completed in just a few minutes. To make things even easier, the developers decided that if the player drags a piece even remotely close to where it belongs, it should automatically snap into place.
Earlier this week, I had the pleasure of interviewing Paul Croft, the man behind the amazing game studio known as Mediatonic. The studio is responsible for many terrific games, not only on the iOS platform, but also on the PSP and PC. I've always been a fan of the studio's games - in particular, I absolutely love Must.Eat.Birds.
The full interview is presented below.

If you are looking for a great Valentine's day deal, SEGA is offering up some great titles for 99 cents (ChuChu Rocket, Super Monkey Ball 2, Phantasy Star, etc.), and the Sonic series for as low as $2.99. You can check out the full list here at their blog. You can click on the linked image on this post to go right to SEGA games in the App store (or simply do a search for SEGA in iTunes).
The App Store is just about ready to (metaphorically) burst under the weight of all the nearly identical puzzle games it's been constantly barraged with. As a result, it's always refreshing to see a game that offers something new and interesting to restore our faith in the genre; Burning Bubbles Lab is one such game.
Just released on the App store, Highway King, a new time management game that puts you in charge of a trucking outfit! Developed by a team of university students, the game requires you to manage and vector a fleet of big rigs safely to their destinations. Get it on the App store here, and look for my review coming soon! Read on for more game play info from the developer...
Some of the more jaded iPhone application critics (of which at times I claim to be one of these) complain that there are no new, truly creative interactive experiences on the iPhone anymore. With literally hundreds of thousands of applications to choose from in the App Store, hasn't every pixel pushing design already been manifested? Strange Rain answers those critics with a resounding 'No' thanks to its torrent of creativity and captivating, imaginative gameplay.
Pocket God, I am T-Pain and Angry Birds have taken the app world by storm, and I guess it was only inevitable that the real world would want their own versions.
Pocket God now has models
of their characters available for purchase. You can act out your own scenes of destruction (or benevolence) as you see fit, or just display them in a glass case, the way your grandmother displayed Hummel figurines!
