Not trying to steal Eric Pankoke's thunder on this, but am also a big AW fan from way back, and figured we should get the word out that you can now get this fabulous game (see Eric's preview at link above, and reviews forthcoming from both of us). Go here on the app store ($4.99 currently), or read on for the full PR scoop and video trailer...
In 1991 and following Another World was unleashed on a myriad of platforms starting with the Amiga. I remember the game existing, but I don’t know that I ever played it. In a couple of days BulkyPix will be releasing this game on the iOS platform, and I’ve had the privilege of spending some time with it over the past few days. Whether you like platform games or you just want to experience something a bit different than what you’re used to playing on your device, you won’t want to miss this gem.
Freemium games have certainly escalated throughout the existence of the App Store. The model is cheap[er] for developers, and most games like such are a big hit among iPhone gamers who can't quite spend money to whet their gaming needs. Another application like described, is Urban Rivals. You can download it on the App Store absolutely free but only for a limited time.
Magic Defenders, a tower defense challenge for iPad and iPhone that requires you to master a mix of magic weapons to keep the invading orcs out. Other than pleasing animations, the game is pretty standard TD--not that it isn't still fun to flatten a bunch of orcs with a bombardment of lightning (especially the ones riding the green walruses, if that's what they are).
I would say that the top down, overhead view is probably my favorite way to look at racing games. It’s no surprise then that I would be drawn to Paper Racer. The truth is that at its heart, the game is a solid racer with cool tracks and a decent control scheme. Unfortunately, there isn’t much in the way of bells and whistles. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, but with as many offerings as there are in the App Store, it’s all the little extras that make one title stand out from the pack. Now it is true that you can import your own images for your car, but even that’s been done before.
Gempang is a charming match-three game developed by BITPlus Inc. The object of the game is to click on similar-looking monsters and have them burst by dragging them onto a central water monster called "Aquose." Aquose eats them and they burst. When the player clicks on matching monsters, they become linked by a water line of sorts and no matter how far away they are from Aquose, they can be sent toward him. Players do this by dragging them as a group toward Aquose.
A Space Shooter is simply that – a space shooter. There’s nothing spectacular about the game play, and honestly not a whole lot original about the story or anything else. What makes this worth playing, aside from the basic thrill of blowing up everything that stands in your way (which is a formula that’s hard, though not impossible, to mess up), is the game’s personality. The irreverent hero is amusing, the villains are outlandish, and the A.I. put’s James Cameron’s movie to shame. Game play wise I can rattle off half a dozen other games that are more fun, but when it comes to sheer atmosphere, A Space Shooter is hard to beat… and the captain would be more than happy to tell you so.
Do you have the skill needed to defend the Tower of Atia from the attackers? In other words, the world is in your hands and if you can't handle it, then Defen-G Astro [$2.99] probably isn't your cup of tea. Otherwise, even though it's an overused cliche on the App Store, it still proves to be an interesting genre when developers apply their personality to it - take control of the defenders, and defend the all-so powerful tower in this strategic solution to any boring moments.
Ninja Flier Pro hails from FunVidApps, and it promises ninja-paced fun in a tunnel racing title to take your breath away.
It’s not a concept that will take long to become familiar with. If you’ve played any other tunnel racers, you know what to expect: your character, in this case a slickly animated ninja, rushes headlong down an enclosed passage, dodging obstacles and collecting stuff. In Ninja Flier Pro, “stuff” is glowing green canisters, which you then cash in later for goodies. These goodies come mainly in the form of superpowers, which you’ll use against the bad guys cramping your ninja-flying style. The bad guys are aliens, so you’ll need all the supercharged ninja-fu you can muster.
A logic and action-based puzzler, iPolygon, has recently been released as a universal app on the App Store.
The game has been designed to be played in the portrait orientation mode with the player either relying on swipes or gyroscope controls. Gameplay revolves around a ricochet mechanic.
The aim of each level is to keep a moving ball inside a structure full of colorful walls while breaking all the walls in each level. This means that players want to hit the walls and break them, but keep the ball constantly moving; and not fall off the edge of the structures' walls into space. There are also two smaller power-up orbs available that stay stationary.
