This week’s selections sound like they were pulled straight from the “popular kids” section of gaming. You have a brand new farming sim (at least to the iOS platform) called Green Farm that comes to you courtesy of Gameloft. On the other hand, if tower defense games are your thing you have your choice of Army Of Darkness Defense or Stop The Knights, both of which sound like they take a bit darker but more comical route to the genre. Finally you have something completely different – at least given the developer – in the form of a physics puzzler called Bug Chucker (TMA Review) from Cyan Worlds, the creators of such treasures as Myst and Riven.
The App Store is heaven for all things creative and a unique opportunity for developers to sell an original idea at a very low staring cost. Thanks to this we’ve seen a bunch of simple but addictive games created by one-two man teams that have found phenomenal success. The latest one, exploiting the cute and cuddly but hungry concept is Catch The Candy, released under the patronage of Bulkypix, a publisher you should definitely keep your eye on. Lately they’ve released some superb titles and seem to be well on their way to rival Chillingo and Gameloft.
