The cult hit, ultra-stylish adventure game from Amanita Design, Machinarium, will be getting an iPad version pretty soon, the developer announced today.
Machinarium is a point-and-click adventure game in the classic sense. You basically go around exploring the environments, solving puzzles and otherwise clicking on anything that could potentially have an action coded into it. It has been very well received by both fans and critics since its release in Fall 2009.
Want to fulfill your Kraftwerk fantasies with a $12 iOS app? iVoxel is cool little app that's deceptively modest at first glance -- it takes a few minutes to work through the menus and appreciate the powerhouse of voxel magic. But that power becomes less surprising when you consider that the technology is based on the Matrix vocoder from the same developer which is notably used by Kraftwerk among other well known names.
The Mac|Life editors’ favorite new pastime (besides fiddling with our Apple gear, of course) is playing DJ. Most days, we can be found at turntable.fm/maclife spinning tunes and nerding out on music while we work. But office decorum dictates that we wear headphones while rocking out. Yes, technology has made it extremely easy for Robbie to go on a Smiths bender and take the rest of us along for the ride -- but Paul’s ban on Morrissey in the office is still very much in effect, and violators are punished swiftly.
The App Store's finest work of art on the subject of being a horrendous all-destroying mega worm received an exciting new update today. The game will now allow you to wreak havoc, destroying all that you see...with a joystick!
Yeah, yeah, yeah, we know. It's only the latter part of July, and the last thing you probably want to be thinking about is school being back in session. However, it'll be here before you know it, and one way you can be prepared is by looking into renting e-books, or rather e-textbooks. Heck, you might even save some money along the way!
You guys remember how lame it was when Apple released iOS 4.3.4 a mere 10 days ago to squash the JailbreakMe.com exploit? Now those crazy cats are at it again with perhaps the fastest turnaround yet for a new mobile device update in the form of iOS 4.3.5.
Comic-Con may sadly be over after yesterday, but we've still got some good comic related news! Today we're hearing that the popular and critically lauded digital pinball game, Marvel Pinball, will be coming soon-ish to iOS. The only release date so far is "by the end of 2012" but that's better than nothing.
We doubt you could have missed this week's release of Lion, even if you aren't a early adopter who likes to jump in at the get-go. Oh, no, we're sure you didn't miss that. And who could have missed Netflix and the backlash? Well, we've got a few suggestions for users of both, plus a few other tasty treats just in case you missed it.
Even if you've never stepped foot in a comic book store in your life, you don't have to sit out on the action. Comic book readers for iOS let anyone indulge in stories of adventure and superheroes. In honor of Comic-Con, we found 10 of the best -- some are free apps that let you buy comics as in-app purchases, and others are paid library apps where you upload digital comics you already own. But at least one should suit every true believer's needs.
