The fact that there are numerous board game classics on the iPhone and iPad is a testament that recreating the experience in a virtual format is a lucrative affair. Jenga, however, is different, because the selling point of the game is the physical dexterity, speed and accuracy to pull it off. More importantly, Jenga is a game that is ideally played with friends and family. The best part, of course, is the riot that ensues when the whole thing collapses and everyone scrambles to rebuild the fallen tower of blocks to start a new round.
Wow, if you’re an RPG fan you’d better be thanking both the App Store approval folks and several developers for this week. The big guns were Infinity Blade and Dungeon Hunter 2, but in total this roundup is filled with 5 awesome looking RPGs. If that’s not really your style of game, however, there is a new Angry Birds like physics puzzler called Pirates Vs. Ninjas Vs. Zombies Vs. Pandas that looks pretty entertaining (and the name is fun too). Finally, if you’re looking for a “board” game on the go you might want to check out Jenga, the official electronic version of the popular tower toppling table top game. Try and say that one fast five times!
