An ominous new trailer has appeared for an unknown upcoming iPhone game from the developer RedLynx that teases that it will have 1000 days of gaming content. It's unknown exactly what is meant by this strange announcement, but the trailer seems to suggest that it's some kind of incredibly ambitious downloadable content plan. Or perhaps some type of new procedural generation of levels that creates new content daily.
"Shadow Vanguard" may be a pretty over-the-top name for a game that's essentially about cops, but then again "Rainbow Six" is already a pretty strange name to begin with. Goofy names aside, Gameloft has revealed some of the first ever screenshots of the game in action, and it's looking absolutely fantastic.
Most iPhone games offer a conveniently simple distraction from everyday life. If you're waiting in line at the bank then a thirty second game of Robot Unicorn Attack works perfectly. Every once in a while though we need something a little bit more thought provoking. We're hoping the upcoming deck-building card battler from MoreGames, Orions 2: the Deckmasters, will fit that bill.
Late last week, some rumors began to circulate that Final Fantasy III would soon be getting an iPhone port. However, that's where the news stopped. Two problems arose: A) the news was based off of a scan of a japanese magazine that nobody could read to confirm the news, and B) nobody knew whether the game (if it existed at all) was coming to territories outside of Japan. Today Square Enix offered an official word on the matter, and we can all rejoice in the knowledge that one of the lost Final Fantasy games will find its way to North America on the iPhone.
If you're unfamiliar with Minecraft, suffice to say that it's one of the most unlikely success stories the world of gaming has seen in the past decade. This extremely low-budget, low-fi open world hit has now racked up more than 1.3 million downloads, and that's before the game has technically even released yet (the game is technically still in beta.) Today we got the exciting news from Markus Persson, the founder of Minecraft's developer (Mojang) that Minecraft will be releasing on iPhone and iPad "sometime later this year."
Chillingo, the publisher behind games like Cut the Rope and Guerilla Bob, announced that its currently working to bring the B-list first-person shooter Painkiller to iOS platforms. The original Painkiller was developed by People Can Fly for the PC platform and was widely known for its incredibly over-the-top action and violence.
Popular adventure game developer Telltale Games has announced that their new game, set in the universe of the seminal 1980s sci-fi flick, Back to the Future, has released to the App Store. If you grew up wishing you could live in a world full of flux capacitors and irritable Libyans then this may be the best chance you'll ever get. Episode 1 features a completely new story set within the Back to the Future universe.
What began as a dispute at the Easton Town Center Apple Store location in Columbus, Ohio ended with a 16-year-old shooting his younger brother outside of the store, who died several days later from the single gunshot wound.
Last month, an indie platformer titled The Blocks Cometh was submitted to Apple for approval and was released on the App Store shortly thereafter. It was even given some spotlight in the App Store's new and notable section.
But here's the kicker: the game's developer had no idea it had ever been submitted. Pirates had stolen the source code and submitted the game themselves. Since then, Apple has taken down the pirated copy of the game, and now the official copy is set to be released tomorrow with a little love from the fantastic platformer League of Evil.
The ink has barely dried on Apple's new App Store subscription feature, one that will allow for magazines, newspapers and other publishers to off varying length subscriptions to users of iOS devices. However, according to various law professors, the new policy has the potential to catch some antitrust flack.
