You’ve defeated the Void, bought the best ship, and loaded it with unique and powerful equipment from the blueprints you’ve found across the galaxy. So what else is there to do in the best Elite-style space combat and trading game on iOS?
FishLabs, the makers of Galaxy on Fire 2, were well aware that fans were clamoring for more, so they released a major update. Version 1.0.7 brings with it many news features available either for free or with an in-app purchase, including the Valkyrie expansion.
This may not sound like too big of a story at first blush. However, consider that Chillingo was the publisher behind two previous efforts in the iOS physics-puzzler genre. Two little games that go by the names Angry Birds and Cut the Rope. All of the sudden this story takes on a whole new level of significance.
Reason would have it a game called Mos Speedrun would place emphasis on expedient traversal. In truth, that only accounts for a quarter of the focus of this platformer about a coin-collecting ladybug. Despite its title, this is a speed-run-optional affair.
iPhone gamers who grew up in the 1990s are in for a bit of a treat this evening. The three greatest things about the nineties were the X-men, bustling arcades, and the playing of X-men in bustling arcades. Tonight, the third of those three will be re-released on iOS in anticipation of the nationwide launch of the film X-men: First Class Friday night.
With all the crazy weather we’ve been having lately all across the country, you might want to think about upgrading from Apple’s pretty bare bones weather app to something with a little more umph to it. But where to start? The App Store is choked with weather apps, but the basics are pretty much a given. You want to know the temperature, what the weather will be like today, and a forecast into the near future.
Still skeptical that massively multiplayer online games can work on the iPhone? We're still pretty skeptical too. However, today we got at least one good reason to hold out hope for the mobile MMO genre. Gameloft announced today that it's WoW-alike Order and Chaos has made over $1 million in twenty days on the App Store.
Despite the gangbusters success of the Facebook iPhone app, for some reason the social networking behemoth has yet to do anything for the iPad. Sure there's a touch-optimized version of their page that works on any mobile device, but come on. That's not what we'd call a dedicated focus on the dominant tablet. Heck, they've even got something for the RIM Playbook, which only seven people actually own, while millions of iPads and iPad 2s ship with nary a peep from Zuckerberg, et al. Bizarre behavior, to be sure.
But fear not, because the App Store is crammed to the gills with Facebook apps just for you and your needs -- whether they be chatty, photography, video, or the whole package. And while you scan this gallery, you can be sure another six hundred developers are submitting Facebook related apps for approval. We can do just fine without you, Mark, just fine.
Videos of a new tablet game have been released showing a new game called Shadowgun running on a Tegra 2-based Android device. In short, the videos are borderline unbelievable as they display near-console quality graphics on a touchscreen tablet. The third-person shooter is likened by the developers to Gears of War and is said to eventually be coming to iOS as well.
iPhone and iPod touch users without an iPad have been watching enviously from the sidelines as tablet users have the fun of using Apple’s iWork apps -- until now. Apple has announced new updates to Pages, Numbers and Keynote for iOS that make them universal at last.
