1-Bit Ninja may look like a simple retro throwback, and it is. But it's also much more than that. It's not just your average, run-of-the-mill Mario homage. It also has some really neat ideas.

Ever felt the urge to build one of those ridiculous Rube Goldberg contraptions OK GO is always featuring in their music videos? Well that's the subject of Casey's Contraptions, a new upcoming iOS game that tasks the player with building elaborate cause-and-effect chains to complete the level.

The publishers are slowly, but surely, starting to trickle in. Today, Apple added another into the fold with Hearst. They have agreed to Apple's terms and will start to implement iTunes subscriptions into three of their iPad apps starting with July issues.
