This week offered a mix of good and bad news for iOS gaming. On the one hand, former iOS powerhouse Ngmoco announced layoffs, but we got some awesome news to offset that. It looks like old school adventure game superstars Tim Schafer and Ron Gilbert could be making a new iOS adventure game funded entirely by Kickstarter users.
This week, we've got the lowdown on one of the best Nintendo DS games of 2011 hitting iOS, as well as an equally interesting game about a gorilla jumping up and down on a ski lift. See, this is exactly why we love iOS gaming. Head past the break to once again marvel at the astonishing diversity of the App Store.
Headlining this week’s cadre of awesome titles is the bizarre Pizza vs Skeletons, a game about a giant pizza squashing things and crushing entire buildings -- which is pretty much the most outstanding concept for a game we’ve ever heard. But that’s not all. We’ve also got details on rComplex, a stellar-looking Canabalt-esque platformer, and Valve’s new Steam iOS app.
After months of waiting we’ve finally got access to awesome fighting-game classic Soulcalibur on iOS. However, we’ve got some major reservations about the state of the final release. However, we’ve got far fewer reservations about the other two awesome-looking games we’re spotlighting this week: JAZZ: Trump’s Journey and Smash Cops.
We're on the tail end of another great week for iOS games, including the new expansion for much-loved card game, Ascension, as well as the new game from the creators of Super Stickman Golf, plus a little indie favorite called Super Crate Box. There’s also some great stuff not too far off on the horizon, including the iOS debut of multiplatform hit Cthulhu Saves the World, along with the amazing-looking Star Marine.
In our latest iOS games news roundup, we're highlighting the recent release of the free expansion/update for top shooter Shadowgun, as well as the debut of the Law & Order: Legacies crossover game and the quick rise and fall of the iMAME emulator app. Flip through the gallery images for more!
Christmas Day is just around the corner, and that means one thing for iOS gamers: lots of new iOS owners. Why is that good news? Because companies are crawling over themselves to get a piece of this massive new influx of gamers. So while you might not see a ton of new games releasing this week, all the best older ones are on sale. Set aside some money this year and stock up on games for the next couple months.
There weren't a ton of news stories for this week's iOS gaming news round up, but there were quite a few stellar games actually released to the App Store. So rather than sticking with the formula, we're going to mix it up a bit this week. In lieu of some ho-hum news stories (and passing over lots of deserving games), we're going to be focusing 100% on games this week. It's one of the best weeks in recent memory, so jump into the gallery and have a look.
While the game release season is finally cooling down on the PC and console side of things, iOS gaming isn’t even stopping for gas. There are so many great games on this platform that every month of the year is full of amazing releases. You don’t need to look further than this week’s games (Lunar Racer, The Sims FreePlay, and Batman Arkham City Lockdown) for proof.
It’s a good week for iOS gaming software. Not only do we have the resurrected Xbox kinda-classic The Bard’s Tale to look forward to, but we also have word that the developer of Scribblenauts is working on a new game. But the really big news is that Infinity Blade 2 launched today. So let’s get to the updates so that we can all go slay the God King.
