Touchgrind BMX coming Spring 2011

Remember Touchgrind, the excellent skateboard simulator? My fingers still dance awkward steps across my iPod when I’m looking up hard dictionary words like ‘cluster’ and ‘shill’ ’cause Touchgrind rocked them to the memory core. It made this crappy sk8tR into something special, and kept my hands busy in the best ways possible. Well, come this Spring, Illusian Labs will release its sequel, Touchgrind BMX. The same sort of free style physics will get things going on pipes and over rails from the relative safety of your iDevice. That means no more pinchin’ the biscuit. For now, enjoy the above video. We’ll have more as it comes.

Wanna get prepped for Touchgrind BMX on one of the iDevice’s first truly innovative titles? Check out Touchgrind now!

Well, Chillingo are grabbing another character the iPhone gaming arsenal, Lizzy, from Illusion Labs’ Sway, another highly rated platformer which makes excellent use of the iDevice controls.

Sway in Review – Let me PerSWAY you to get this!!!

sway1 How can a game that is so simple, be so challenging and fun at the same time? I mean really? I have never played a game where the instructions were so short and simple.

Maybe I should stop asking so many questions and give a few answers.
