Are vampires still all the rage in 2011? They were huge in 2010, but we may not be up-to-date on our teenie-bop-sensations. Chillingo's new hack-n-slash tower defense game may star vampire as villains, but they're quick to add that they're nothing like the ones we've been seeing on the silver screen these past couple of years.
We often like to poke fun at some of the corny fantasy game names that pop up on the app store, but High Flier Death Defyier is essentially the antithesis of that. Not only does it sport a fantastic title, but it's also a very entertaining-looking new concept on iOS. Imagine the popular Glyder series then remove the wimpy hang glider and replace it with a jet pack...and brawn.
They grow up so fast! The notorious Dev-Team has been keeping our iOS devices jailbroken and unlocked for a while now, including the latest iOS 4.3.1 untethered jailbreak unleashed to celebrate the third anniversary of their PwnageTool application.
We're in a lull, people. It's not technically winter anymore, though on some days looking outside, we'd be hard pressed to say it's spring. Cold drizzly rain traps us inside with our gear and our gadgets, but the iPad 2 is weeks old already (le sigh) and there's no new Apple hardware on the horizon. Heck, we aren't even into "heated rumor" season yet. We're just...in a lull. So while we rest and recuperate, let's have a gander at what's upcoming, what's just been released, and what's in development, in case you missed it.
LogMeIn Ignition could be considered one of the best remote desktop viewing applications currently available for the Mac and iOS, and it just got better with an update allowing remote file transfers from your computers over Wi-Fi or 3G. This functionality was added to the application a few weeks ago, along with a major user interface overhaul. If you’re new to retrieving files with LogMeIn Ignition, read on to find out about all of the new features this service currently provides.
Happy April Fools Day! While we didn't actually plan out a prank of our own, we did find some nifty apps to help you prank your friends and ring in the first of April. Also, yes, that's an Apple Store playset you're staring at.
We just recently reviewed the excellent 100 Cameras in 1 app, but while it may have 100 cameras...in one, it doesn't have anything quite as awesome as this. Admittedly, this retro-inspired camera filter is only really useful for nostalgia trips, but sometimes we all need a quick 99 cent vacation back to a simpler time. If nothing else, this app forces us all to take a step back and appreciate everything the iPhone 4 camera offers.
Remedy Entertainment, a studio that normally specializes in console gaming, has announced that it's first ever iOS release is available in the App Store now. It's called Death Rally, and it's a drastically upgraded adaptation of their fifteen-year-old classic PC title of the same name. If you've been looking for a little bit of Twisted Metal on your iPhone this may be just the thing you need.
As part of a Facebook promotion, highly popular iOS developer and publisher Gameloft has pulled the lid off of its "secret project." The secret announcement turned out to be a brand new episode in the celebrated N.O.V.A. series of first person shooters. The announcement came today as Gameloft reached a previously set goal of 300,000 Facebook followers.
