Artificial Life’s iSoccer Backstreet Promo Code Giveaway!

contest-ai-bssoccer-whichidevice

For fans of the real football aka ‘soccer’, there is nothing more exciting than watching the Netherlands getting eaten by Sweden in the Euro Cup (??) or Celtic get their bums handed to them again – nothing. But then, that ain’t real football. That is spectator seating, bench barking, fat fanning, etc.. Real football happens on the streets, in the alleys and on pitches around the world – much like a new game (hint hint, wink wink, nudge nudge – say no more).

iSoccer Backstreet, a new game by Artificial Life, the geniuses behind iDroidsMania, comes at a great introductory price of 199 pennies, but its developers in benevolent wisdom, are giving away 20 promo codes. Check it out.

Top Free App of The World – Paper Toss for the Gold!

news-topfreeapp-papertoss-announcement

I couldn’t have said it better. ‘We want gold’, a saying not made famous by New Order’s Football World Cup song. While we at TMA can rest assured that England won’t win any time soon, we cannot predict who will take top spot at the App Store. Last time we gave enough of a hoot, it was iDracula sporting its silver guns and swords looking down on the world from the Top Paid App position. This time, Paper Toss is the Top Free App and has been since the 13th! That is five full days atop the world. Will it become a record? Will you create a record? You can – I can’t – I really suck at this game.

Battletaire in Review – A Puzzle Game Mash-Up

battletaire1I’m starting to get into musical mash-ups. Hearing Jay-Z rap over a mixed version of a track from Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time thrills me. The ingenuity of combining a multitude of songs into one is an art form in and of itself. Battletaire is similar to this paradigm of design. It combines games like Sudoku, Battleship, Picross, and Minesweeping into one single experience. Despite a few minor flaws, this is a formula for success.

Simutrans now here and free for your iDevice

simutran891Simutrans, a free and popular transport simulation game (think SimCity and Transport Tycoon Deluxe) that has graced the PC, Linux and Mac has just made its way onto the iPhone/iPod Touch. Thanks to ZodTTD, the master homebrow dev responsible for bringing SNES and Playstation 1 emulators to jailbroken iDevices (among other projects), the port of Simutrans can now be enjoyed gratis at the palm of your hand:

Your goal is to establish a successful transport company. Transport passengers, mail and goods by rail, road, ship, and even air. Interconnect districts, cities, public buildings, industries and tourist attractions by buiding a transport network you always dreamed of.

Planes, ships, trains, trams, trucks, busses and monorails are at your disposal. You can control and watch your finances and the traffic of your vehicles and goods.

As this is essentially a direct port of the PC game and not built from the ground up for the iPhone, players will find Simutrans rather sluggish and an interface that can be difficult to nagivate. Still, free is free and fans of the genre should definitely be checking this out. [Simutrans, FREE]
