Classic gaming in the form of 8-bit graphics and sound effects are going big this week, with a huge price cut across one developer's line up, plus some various other retro-games that just happened to see their price tags slashed. And if you're looking for a smattering of productivity app action, we've got you covered there too. So let's see what's cooking in the App Store these days.
Big-name spinoffs lead the App Store’s charge into December, with Assassin’s Creed Pirates and Heroes of Dragon Age delivering a taste of their respective console and PC siblings on iOS, though new games like Band Stars and KingHunt look to provide intriguing spins on popular mobile formulas. And the iOS launch of Telltale’s The Wolf of Us episodic adventure series is definitely one to look into, considering its strong Mac start recently.
Tuesday night saw the first giant wave of iPad Air reviews roll out, and not surprisingly, word on the street is that Apple's latest tablet is a winner. The slate was universally praised for being lighter and trimmer than the last two generations, and even with the lack of truly new features, most reviewers recommend it as a worthy buy. So who's planning to buy one come this Friday...?
There are literally hundreds upon hundreds of awesome classic games currently available on the iPhone. We should know; we just picked up 10-15 of them during yesterday's awesome mega sale. But up until now there's been one glaring omission: Double Dragon. Now that omission has been rectified, and the classic NES beat-em-up will be arriving in the App Store soon.
