In the wake of yesterday's unveiling of the iPad 2, beleaguered whipping-boy AT&T has announced new pricing plans who prefer to use your magical new device over 3G. There will be two options: Prepaid, and the newly created 'Postpaid,' which is just a fancy name for a service that will be tacked onto your bill without requiring you to sign away two years of your life.
At the Classic Game Post-Mortem today at the Game Developers Conference, game designer Eric Chahi announced that his classic retro adventure game Out of This World is due to be re-released on the iPad soon. The game sold over a million copies back when it debuted in 1991 on the Commodore Amiga, Atari ST, Apple IIGS, and MS-DOS platforms, and was innovative for its technique of using just sound, actions and facial expressions to communicate the story.
Halfbrick, the developer of the hit iOS game, Fruit Ninja, has returned with another promising looking title. Their oft-used manly hero, Barry Steakfries will be starring again in a game called machine gun jetpack. If you're thinking to yourself, "there's no way it's actually about a machinegun jetpack," think again. Our most secret prayers have been answered.
Epic Games announced today that the award-winning iOS title from Chair Entertainment, Infinity Blade, will be getting a big content update available for free. To coincide with the new update - titled: Infinity Blade: The Deathless Kings - the game will also be offered up for a discount rate for a limited time.
Among things like the iMovie for iPad and a little thing called the iPad 2, Apple today announced the upcoming availability of GarageBand for iPad, and the little musical powerhouse has never looked sweeter. If you’ve ever used one of the piano iPad apps, you’ll understand immediately why this is something to get excited about. And it won’t just let you play piano, either; you can strum a guitar, play the bass, or bang on the drums. Since it won’t hit the app store until March 11, we don’t yet have a hands-on review of it, but what we do have an idea of what it is, and why it will be awesome.
In the mobile gaming world all of the attention is focused on San Francisco for the Game Developers Conference, but that hasn't stopped EA from launching one of its biggest games of the year. Fight Night Champion, EA's new boxing game, is now available for iOS devices.
Before you ask, no, we're not entirely certain why Sonic needs to drive a car in this upcoming racing game. We weren't sure when this title was released last year on consoles either. Our guess: it would look weird if he was running next to the cars of his opponents in a kart-racing game. There's one thing we are sure about: we're pretty excited about this game getting its release on iOS platforms.
Ordinarily, when a developer finds success with a particular game, their follow up project generally follows in a similar genre. Kairosoft's announcement of Hot Springs Story is a perfect example. However, Firemint seems to have no qualms about continually reinventing themselves. Their new game is titled Agent Squeek and stars an adorable secret agent mouse.
There's never a shortage of speculation surrounding an Apple product launch or update. The release of iOS 4.3 is no exception. Since iOS 4.2.1 became available for download, the Internet has kept itself busy trading in rumors, scrutinizing build notes, and picking apart the code of iOS 4.3 test builds in the hope that doing so might reveal what was next for Apple's trusty mobile operating system. Most likely, all will be revealed at this week's Apple Event. But do you really want to wait that long to find out what Cupertino has in store for us? Of course not. To that end, we've put together a list of what we know so far about the next iteration of iOS. The short version? It's gonna be awesome.
