One of my favorite styles of casual gaming on my iPod Touch is time management, and one of the top developers in this genre is PlayFirst, creators of the “Dash” series (Diner Dash, Wedding Dash, etc.) They just released a new entry in the iPhone series called Hotel Dash, and to add icing to the cake, I recently had the opportunity to correspond with PlayFirst GM Chris Williams about their iDevice ventures and where they are headed next.
Time management (TM) games are synonymous with the PC Dash series – fun, well-crafted and highly polished casual games that serve as a great introduction to the genre. Many of us have followed Flo’s footsteps in her quest to serve gastronomic delights the fastest and most efficient ways she can. Dash games have set the standard of what a good TM game should be. In fact, one of my all-time favorite games for the iPhone/iPod Touch is Cooking Dash, which, in my opinion is better than the original.
