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. The announcement video shows off the ability to swipe the screen to turn the camera and make the 2D level into a 3D level.
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.

While the PSP has games like Monster Hunter and SOCOM and Nintendo DS has Mario Kart, the iPhone hasn't had all that many quality multiplayer games worth getting excited about. So our interest was definitely piqued when we learned about the announcemen of Crescent Moon Games' 8-player shooter, Deadlock.
Americans have yet to be able to enjoy the spoils of Spotify, a European music streaming service that’s wildly popular across the pond. If the company wasn’t gunning for Apple before, they certainly are now -- with a new music download store, iPod syncing and mobile apps for free users.
Video game publishing juggernaut Electronic Arts has taken out its check book yet again to acquire another high profile iOS gaming company.
