Bejeweled, one of the few games I play religiously on my iPhone since its re-release back in December, has received its first update (v1.1). PopCap have added a new game mode called Butterflies, which plays very much like the burning letters found in Bookworm (TMA Review), but instead of falling down, the butterflies move upward toward the menacing spider after every match made. As per iTunes description:
If you think Siri’s a bit too snobbish for your liking (as in you don’t have an iPhone 4S), there’s a new digital assistant in town, and she’s not exclusive to only one iDevice. Meet Evi, the app that works on the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad (iOS 4 and higher required) and Android phones.
Evi is the revolutionary artificial intelligence here to help with all of your everyday information needs.
Unlike a search engine, which simply looks for matching words and shows you a list of websites, Evi understands what you want to know and gives back exactly what you’re after.
Need to know where the nearest bank is? Not a problem. Going out for dinner but can’t decide where? She can help with that too. The more you ask, the more she will learn, and thus she is improving all the time.
TellTale Games, one of the most popular publishers of Adventure Games on the planet, is also celebrating the New Year with an awesome $0.99 sale for a number of their iOS offerings. HECTOR: Ep1 HD – We Negotiate with Terrorists (Review), a hilarious 3rd person point-and-tap adventure starring foul-mouthed Detective Inspector Hector (and honorable mention in our App Store’s best Adventure Games roundup) has dropped from $6.99 to a buck. So instead of paying well over $20 for the 3 part series, the complete trilogy on the iPad can be yours for only $3. Fans of the genre will also get to pick up Puzzle Agent, Wallace & Gromit The Last Resort for iPad and several others for a dollar. Telltale doesn’t often drop their games to $0.99, so if you’re into the puzzle/adventure scene, now would be a great time to take the plunge (links after the break). The sale will last an entire week, up until January 29th.
Soul Calibre, the iconic weapon-based fighter that first released for the arcades and Sega Dreamcast in the late 90′s, will be making its way to iOS on Jan 19th.

While the launch price is currently unknown, Soul Calibre will be a universal app and require an iPhone 4/4S, iPad 2 and iPod Touch 4G to run the visually impressive game. And coinciding with Namco Bandai’s iOS release, Soul Calibre 5 is set to make its Xbox 360 and PS3 debut next month, on Feb 3rd. Check out the official trailer and more screenshots after the break.

Apple, iBooks, – Free
If this is indicative of what the next few weeks leading up to Christmas are going to be like then you’d better strap yourselves in and prepare for a crazy ride! On a normal good week I might build a list of between 25 and 30 games to whittle down for my final list of 10, but this week I had almost 60 games! Naturally everyone’s excited about Infinity Blade II, the successor to one of the most successful RPGs to grace the iOS screen. If you like your monster slaying action a little more lighthearted you might consider The Bard’s Tale, a 21st century re-imagining of one of the great RPG series that I grew up with in the 80s. Players eager for a Kinect like experience but not wishing to buy an Xbox will want to look into Fuego’s River Adventure, a hands-free game that uses your iPad’s camera (requires an iPad 2) to track your movements and manipulate your character accordingly. On the other hand, if accessories are your thing you might consider appBlaster Overkill, a newly released version of the shooter Overkill that requires the new appBlaster gun peripheral in order to provide a more visceral shooting experience.
The most anticipated iOS game of the year is finally here. The sequel to Infinity Blade (TMA Review), one of the most visually stunning and fastest-grossing apps ever on the iOS platform ($1.6 million in just 4 days) was released earlier today in the New Zealand App Store. Expect even better graphics, more weapons and customizations and 40 new locations.
The God King has been defeated, an unlikely hero has emerged and now you must discover the truth behind the secrets of the Infinity Blade. The continuing journey of young Siris unfolds as you delve deeper into the world of the Deathless tyrants and their legion of Titans. Can you unlock all the mysteries and successfully wield the power of the Infinity Blade in this timeless sword fighting adventure of champions and villains?
The game will still run fine on slightly older iDevices, like the iPhone 3GS/4, iPad 1, and iPod Touch 3rd/4th gen, though iPhone 4S and iPad 2 owners will be able to play the game in its full optimized glory thanks to the power of the A5 chip. Infinity Blade 2 will sell for $6.99 and be available in US/Canadian App Stores later tonight, when the clock strikes 12 (Dec 1st release). The iTunes page for the New Zealand store is now live, however. If you haven’t already done so, check out the promo videos for IB2 after the break.
Update: Infinity Blade II is now available in the US App Store .
