A battle-scarred wasteland, mutants, and an evil shadow government; cry as we might for originality in all forms of entertainment, postapocalyptic themes are more pervasive in nerd culture than black, plastic-frame glasses.

August, the month that could really use a holiday but doesn't have any for some crazy reason, is dragging on. It's Friday again. That's a good thing, but if you have time to kill this weekend, whether you're hiding from lousy weather or wiling away the hours in an airport, we've found some great time-killers on sale in the App Store, at low, low prices of free to $1.99. Treat yourself...
John Carmack has created some of the greatest video games of all time. He's helmed successful companies, has more than twenty years of experience in the video game industry, pushed the boundaries of iOS gaming with the recent release of Rage. Oh, and he also moonlights as a rocket scientist as the lead engineer of his own aerospace company, Armadillo Aerospace. When this guy talks, people listen.
Rage HD is packed with an overabundance of mutants, and each and every one of them wants you dead. Luckily for you, your will to survive is only surpassed by your ammunition and the itching in your trigger finger. Some crazy, unexplained event places you at the disposal of a fat-cat TV host, who has you all too willing to engage in a fun house of horror.
Halloween now be a distant memory, but the folks at iD Software are ready to tickle your fear fancy with the release of RAGE for iOS, available in two universal app versions, one of which ups the ante on high resolution textures for newer devices.
You may know John Carmack as the game-maker, the dreamer of dreams of sorts. Carmack is the creative brains behind such computer gaming classics like Quake, and now the mobile development team at id have big plans for iOS. Carmack demoed RAGE on the iPhone at this year's QuakeCon, and now he's speaking out about his plans for the game on all iOS devices.
