Anyone that has ever spent time gaming on an iPad knows how glorious and in turn, frustrating the experience can be. While some games lend themselves to the tablet's touch and tap interface, other games, such as first person shooters and flight sims can be a torment to play, as one wrong move of that virtual control pad can translate into a game-ending loss of tragic proportions. The folks at Ten One Design Understand this, and accordingly have come up with an elegant solution to help you get your frag on. Ladies and Gentlemen: Meet the Fling tactile game controller for iPad.
If there’s a universal truth, it’s this: anyone who’s seen the original Star Wars trilogy wanted to pilot the Millennium Falcon at some point in their lives. This was the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy, capable of anything you could imagine, and you wanted to fly it--no matter what.
THQ’s Star Wars Arcade: Falcon Gunner works to bring this to life. The game inserts you into the driver seat as the role of a crewmember aboard the Millennium Falcon, where you'll relive such classic scenes as the escape from the Death Star in “A New Hope”, the asteroid field battle in “Empire Strikes Back” and a special take on the occasional Imperial Star Destroyer, for good measure.
After seeing it in action months ago at an Apple press conference, more than a million people downloaded “Epic Citadel,” the skeleton of an app that, until recently, has had no name and no release date.

But now, the cherry on top of our App flavored double scoop: ChAIR Entertainment has just released a trailer. The verdict? You tell us.
Epic Games and Chair Entertainment have announced that they will release the Unreal-engine powered titled, Infinity Blade to iOS devices this holiday season.

Between celebrating Bejeweled's ten year anniversary, the release of Peggle Nights, and all that Michael Jackson hoopla, we’ve been hearing quite a bit about PopCap. Well, now the usually quite game giant is pulling out all the stops. PopCap’s fastest selling iOS game, Plants vs. Zombies, has gone on sale for the first time since it was released in February. The reason? It's Halloween!
If you loves you some iOS gaming, then this will come as very happy news: The much anticipated announcment that the iControlPad will become a twitchy fingered reality has been realized.
Now, can we get a w00t-w00t?
As awesome as the increasingly diverse range of games available to iPhone and iPod touch owners is, it's a fair argument that many of the games that we know and love could be just a little more fabulous if the control possibilities weren't so darned limited. Seriously, how many of you out there can look me in the eye and say that their high score wasn't crippled by a less than perfect on screen joypad experience?
