At first I was going to make a screencast of my time with Touchgrind for Mac. The plan was to impress you all with my sick laser flips and bluntside nosegrinds. But after playing Touchgrind for Mac for a while, I'm sure that anything I screencasted would be nothing more than a fails compilation. I am objectively and quantifiably horrible at Touchgrind.
Although we still don’t know when Apple will flip the switch on iCloud, the company finally announced a media event for its new iPhone next week, which likely means the fateful day is just around the corner -- so here’s a recap on everything we know about it so far.
The awesome flash game Steambirds is officially getting a second iOS version next month as Steambirds: Survival makes its way to the App Store.
Steambirds is like the amazing iOS spawn of Flight Control and Frozen Synapse. The former is, of course, the very well-known international iOS hit that tasks players with trying to land airplanes with the touch screen. The latter is a less-known PC and Mac title that has become an underground sensation in recent months.
You’re sitting there and that commercial comes on. You know, the one with the cool indie music in the background. What is that song? Normally, this would be the moment you’d whip out your iPhone and Shazam that -- but wait, your friend pulls out her iPhone and fires up SoundHound. Who gets the song first? And more importantly, who gets it right?
Ever since Ernő Rubik crafted his famous cube in 1974, there's been a certain satisfaction in matching color-coded blocks to one another. Nowadays, unless you're a genius you likely gave up on one of those after 10 minutes or looked up a solution. Qvoid similarly tasks players to combine color-coded cubes, only this time you're pushing a cube around a three dimensional plane and it's a lot more forgiving and fun.
As developers continue to push the boundaries of what’s possible on the iOS platform, we can’t help but feel sorry for the competition -- especially when companies like Madfinger Games are pushing out mobile games which set new standards for graphics, such as this week’s release of Shadowgun.
Apple yesterday announced that it's officially holding an event a week from now to announce new iOS products. Whether it's a new iPhone or a whole slew of iPods is a different story entirely, but it could very well be that this year we'll be seeing a refresh to everyone's favorite music player. With that in mind, here’s a look at what Cupertino might do to put the spotlight back on the iPod again.
iPod fans have been waiting with bated breath for Apple’s fall media event to be announced, especially with the spotlight now shining brightly on a new iPhone. Much to an iPod lover’s chagrin, Apple’s invitations on Tuesday say everything: “Let’s talk iPhone.” Could one or more of the iPod line soon go swimming with the fishes?
Phosphor Games Studio has announced that its bizarre, atmospheric new iOS game, The Dark Meadow, is nearing release. In about ten days we'll finally have our hands on the spooky-looking new adventure game, but for now we'll have to make do with this new trailer.
