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!
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.
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.
The iPhone and iPad have done incredible things for the comic book industry, and now it’s possible --and so, so easy -- to use your iOS device to get some of the very best comics available. With Comic-Con, the ultimate festival of geek starting, we thought we’d take a look at some of the awesome comic books available on the iOS platforms.
Anyone raised from the late seventies on has probably dreamed about having one of their ideas turned into a video game, but how often does it actually happen? For a nine-year-old boy living in Seattle, the dream became a reality with Allied Star Police, a new iOS game from PopCap’s 4th & Battery division.
There are plenty of digital comics being unveiled as the San Diego Comic-Con 2011 kicks off on Thursday, but nowhere is the digital realm being mined more for interactive and rich media extras more than Graphicly, who are helping comic creators expand their horizons like never before.
Who says you can't run Flash on the iPad? Splashtop Desktop Remote makes it possible. This software is part of a crop of apps that makes it possible for you to remotely control your Mac using your iPad, over a local area network.
Anyone who's been to a Portland Timbers game knows that Timber Joey, the official mascot for PDX’s pro-soccer team, isn’t a cartoon character. He’s a burly, larger-than-life, flesh-and-blood man -- albeit one that happens to wear typified logger headwear and a wield a massive chain saw. Of course, the depiction of Timber Joey in a flash animated you-versus-the-hordes arcade game wouldn’t make sense as a real person, so here he is in fact a stylized character, and he’s pretty upset about the abundance of fish (these are the Seattle Flounders) trying to trample through his rose garden.
In a way, the iCade could best be described as a joke gone awesomely right. After all, it started as nothing more than an April Fool’s Day prank -- a fake product created by ThinkGeek, a company known for unbelievable (and most of the time, real) products. Yet here we are playing the thing. Unlike the pranks we’re used to (do high-schoolers still give swirlies?), the iCade was met with heaps of enthusiasm. ThinkGeek knew it had stumbled upon something wonderful as fanboys flooded their comment sections. If you listened closely, you could almost hear the zeitgeist whisper, “Build it and they will come.” And so they did.
