Now we have a new video of the game in action, and news that it will be published on the App Store next month under the name Sacred Odyssey: Rise of Ayden.
The International Mobile Gaming Awards announced its picks for the very best mobile gaming apps of the year. The awards cover games from many different platforms including Android, Linux, and Flash, but unsurprisingly it's iOS that is dominating the awards this year.
Apple’s first quarter fiscal year 2011 financial results conference call didn’t feature many surprises, but one tidbit from COO Tim Cook alluded to a $3.9 billion investment in “long-term commitments with three companies,” which many are speculating could be the LCD displays used in the company’s mobile products.

Apple seems to be doing a boffo job of pushing iPhone users toward their latest and greatest version of iOS, if new data is any indication -- nearly 90 percent of all iPhone users are on some form of iOS 4, with more than 50 percent of those rockin’ on the latest, 4.2.1.
It seems that when Nintendo announced Apple as the enemy of the future last year, they may have been on to something.

Don’t worry, Rovio -- your spot at the top of the paid iPhone apps chart is secure for now. But that free version of Angry Birds? Not so much, thanks to Bubble Ball, the work of a 14-year-old eighth grader from Utah.
In Fruit Ninja, you swipe you finger across the screen and slice fruit into little pieces, but the catch is that you can’t let any drop, nor can you ever slice bombs. Players receive combo bonuses for slicing multiple pieces of fruit in a single swing, and critical strikes add points at random. We used 10 fingers at one point in Fruit Ninja HD for iPad (it’s also available for iPhone) and it worked like a charm. It features two modes—classic and a new “Zen” mode—that provide a speed option and a marathon of slicing and dicing. Unlockables and a multiplayer mode help add a little replayability, even if it’s not likely to grab your attention for the long haul. Still, Fruit Ninja is a ton of fun while it lasts.
Fans of Choose Your Own Adventure books will love Phoenix Wright. This port of the popular Nintendo DS game is an engaging adventure, filled with courtroom shenanigans where each case involves investigating the scene of a crime and procuring important evidence. With five cases total (each with varying difficulty levels), the game delivers plenty of exciting legal drama, and because it’s filled with cheesy one-liners and dramatized Japanese animation, it maintains a light, humorous atmosphere. All in all, this game will have you shouting “Objection!” in no time.
