Paperboy was a huge arcade game back in the 1980s, and as with many retro arcade games – it’s attempting to bring some old school nostalgia as an alternative to the more stylized and ‘modern’ offerings on the App Store. But in the age of new media, the idea of an iDevice Paperboy is starting to become more ‘quaint’ and nostalgic.
You can also pick up little question mark circles to activate a random powerup.
The iDevice should be used for what it is good at: touching. GTProductions more than have this maxim down. Springfling is a simple, yet fun arcade game which puts you behind the coiled-energy of curly piece of metal as you fly through clever vertical levels doing everything to get ever higher. And, there is lots of touching!
Not sure how to tag this one… how ’bout: crazy coder; or: daemonic dev ? Still coming up short. Collider’s dev, Dan Russell-Pinson, certainly is. The mad chap has been chomping at the bit since 2007, creating flash games such as Tipping Point and Block Drop. Collider is another flash-based arcade game where users must eliminate balls of the opposite attraction. Sound crazy? It is until you find out what Dan has been up to. Evidently his family and friends started to worry after he began ‘defacing famous works of art’ in order to get the word out. While TMA doesn’t condone tipping over The Thinker, we don’t mind someone actin’ a little off in order to get the word out.
Collider is expected to crash into the App Store in late January. Till then, you can enjoy his other arcade games.
Video and worried press letter from family and friends following the gap.
If James Bond played video games, Tourist Lover, which places a fistful of romantic cities, 30 girls and breezy outfits in your palm, would be his staple pastime. Its goal is to liberate girls from their nearly thread-bare duds… and see what happens. Do it right and 007′s compliment, “That’s a nice little nothing you’re almost wearing”, is most apt.
Hell, the final frontier… Wait, you’re not going there, are you? But Dante is on his quest to save the beautiful Beatrice, who was condemned to hell by the hand of her jealous husband. Is he going to make it? What’s he going to find on the way? Is the road to hell really paved with good intentions?
After the success of Labyrinth, which was released more than a year ago at the App Store, Illusion Labs have finally released a sequel to this massively popular iDevice game. Boasting tons of new features such as cannons, bumpers, merry-go-rounds as well as multiplayer via Bluetooth and WiFi, Illusion Labs have revamped a classic and essentially created a “must own” title for iPhone/iPod Touch gamers .
The human fascination with outer space takes a humorous turn with a new line-drawing game that revolves around rescuing space monkeys bouncing around in space.
“Mmmmm… Frosted pink donut and the Simpsons iPhone game …”
That was my own Homer moment when I first found out that the much anticipated Simpsons iPhone game wa soon to be released. And when it was finally out, I realized I was out of credits and immediately tweeted “I WANT!!!” to the rest of the world. Desperate for a sign from heaven, I was eventually blessed with a complimentary code which allowed me to download one of the games I have been waiting for since the iPod Touch came out.
I’m reliving grade 10 all over again. Another assignment, another dose of dread. Except that this time, I am completely amazed by the subject. Arachnadoodle isn’t anything like a Robert Golding’s anarchic adventure; it is a ligth-hearted load of web-slinging fun worth more than its 99 cents price tag. But be prepared to sit down, advance some strategies, and get your sling on, because this action/puzzler isn’t just for the funniac.
