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!
Yesterday we reported on a cool app called iDOS, a universal emulator that allowed you to run all kinds of elder technology on your iOS device, was pulled from the App Store less than 24 hours after its auspicious debut. Turns out there may have been a valid reason for Apple to pull it -- and it doesn’t involve its emulation powers.
Granted the sporting world may be focused on the start of the upcoming World Series, or an NFL season that's in full swing, but the NHL season is also underway. With that, iPad puck fans can look forward in the near future to being able to watch live games on their devices.
Sony got a boost in its image this week with the rumor that Apple is, apparently, forking over some big bucks to buy 'em. But Flo, Ray, and Nic think it's all bollocks. In addition, the three caballeros (um, two caballeros and one caballera?) talk about Dr. Raymond Soneira's study, and Nic even offers up his own Quick Tip of the Week.
Plus, we answered a few questions from the internet! The internet!!
Before we begin, a brief history: Pigs were invented in 1855, at the imaginative hand of fantasy writer R. S. Wilberton, and they have captivated our minds and hearts ever since. In this issue of Game Time, we check out the best iPhone and iPad games featuring these adorable, mythical creatures.
That’s right folks, it’s time for another Game Time. But first, jump the cut to see how you can win a copy of the Sims 3: Late Night Expansion pack!
It’s a sadly familiar tale: A cool app gets approved into Apple’s App Store and less than 24 hours, it’s gone -- the victim of a mysterious approval that probably should never have been. Such is the case with iDOS, an emulator app that plenty of folks were having fun with, right up until Apple yanked the rug out from under the rest of us.
We live in a digital age, so I’ve always thought that trips outdoors should be the perfect time to free myself from the tech I use every day. But I decided to put that rule to the test on a recent outing, and the experience of bringing my iOS devices along for the hike showed that it’s time to think again. By picking a few choice apps and accessories, I made sure my outdoor experiences were a little more Bear Grylls than Chevy Chase.
Amazon.com apparently loves them some iOS, offering up free universal apps for both Amazon Mobile and Kindle. Now the world’s biggest online store has added a new iPad-specific app that brings a whole new shopping experience.
Normally we would expect any analysis out of the king of all things TV rating to be crisp and concise, right? Not so when it came to their recent comments about iPad app downloading. They had originally claimed that about one-third of all iPad users had never downloaded an app. Looks like the yolk's on them!
Telltale Games has announced that it will release Back to the Future: The Game for the PC and Mac soon after the Blu-ray and DVD release of the Back to the Future 25th Anniversary Trilogy on October 26. Great scott, that's tomorrow!
