It’s pretty crazy how many games are stringing up for a holiday season which promises to be quite a sticky web of delight. Connect2Media (C2M) who have dazzled TMA with games like Go Go Rescue Squad are brewing another something something for eager shoppers, and if it ends up to be anything like its predecessors, C2M may just have a hit handy. Look for it

Unless you are trying to make the last train home, it is never too late to start. The Granny Coder, a 78 year-old grandmother from Czech is proving this very maxim in the creation of a new arcade physics puzzle-game, Gelex. Years ago, she studied the programming languages C and C++, for an IT stint, but now, retired and battling increased free-time, she has picked up iPhone programming. Gelex has even better news: Handjoy are scheming to debut it at reduced price, or in the case that enough people shout and stamp about it on internet, it will be introduced for free in a few weeks.
By the way, “I want Gelex for free!”

I’m a big fan of games that try to mash a couple of existing concepts together into a new and fresh look. Fuzion is one of those games: a mix of RPG and scrabble. So, without further ado, let’s take spell out D-A-R-K L-O-R-D and look at the preview…
Many people were hoping that the first game to come out from Gilded Skull Games would be Galactic Keep, an impressive looking pen-and-paper RPG emulator. But that game is still in development, and in the meantime, they’ll be releasing their first game called Imp or Oaf?. I got the chance to sit down with the beta version of this game, and played it on and off with my 5-year-old son, and I’m here to give you my impressions.
I was given the opportunity to take a look at the beta version of Moonga, a Customizable Card Game coming soon to the App Store. I do feel like one of the few people who’s never really gotten into the whole CCG scene, but this one looked like a nice simple CCG to ease myself into. I liked the fantasy style art, so I was immediately drawn in to this easy to play game.
Chillingo are on a Vampire kick and though Origins is yet to debut, another game, Dracula: Path of the Dragon lustily awaits the fall (hint) of night engorge on App Store adventure fans. Path of the Dragon is a port of the intricate (and hardcore) point and click PC adventure of the same name and promises to be a complex and dark exploration of the occult, so get your blood-soaked, hex-marked thinking caps on for its autumn release.

Triazzle dazzled TMA back in July, and is preparing to again, but this time just for the holidays. Developer Dreamship will release, “Triazzle Holiday” on 1 November for a limited-time sale. This version will burst with the trim from the winter holidays. And in keeping with the sprit, it will remain 99 cents and should be “an irresistible stocking stuffer”. Not sure how to pack the game without an iDevice though … oh I get it – yeah, that is a nice gift!
