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.
Gameloft have revealed their starting lineup for tomorrow’s release of the iPad. Not surprisingly, they include some of their best selling games, including:
- Asphalt 5 HD
- Dungeon Hunter HD
- Let’s Golf HD
- Modern Combat: Sandstorm HD
- N.O.V.A. – Near Orbital Vanguard Alliance HD
- NFL 2010 HD
- Real Soccer 2010 HD
- Uno HD
Judging from the video above, it looks like we’ll be seeing much improved graphics compared to their iPhone/iPod Touch counterparts, as well as the implementation of the multitouch interface into the gameplay. And with the iPad’s relatively large screen size (compared to that of the iPhone), it may take some time for gamers to get used to holding the device like a virtual controller. Full press release after this space.
The iPad’s launch date is less than 2 weeks away and developers have been working around the clock to bring you games and apps made specifically for the device. Godzilab Games is one such dev and they’ve announced that their beloved iBlast Moki (TMA review) is getting an all new HD version for the iPad. Here are some early details:
- Entirely new graphics. All graphics have been redone in high resolution to get crisp and highly detailed graphics on the iPad.
- Wider vision of each level to take advantage of the wide 9.7 inch screen. This will be especially useful in the built-in level editor.
- All menus have been redesigned and optimized for a better player experience.
- New version of Plus+ designed for the iPad.
iBlast Moki’s success on the iPhone should make for an even better experience on the iPad, with better graphics and more real estate to play with. Fans of the hit game who’ll be buying an iPad should definitely keep an eye out for its release around launch date. More screens after the gap.
