The last couple of weeks have been pretty prosperous for those that like freemium offerings. RPG fans can indulge in Inotia 4: Assassin Of Berkel, the fourth installment of the action / RPG series from international developer Com2us. You do, of course, have the option of outright buying the game which will automatically eliminate the ads and give you some in-game currency, but IAP can take care of that as well. If you like a little strategy with your action there’s Castle Master 3D, a combination of Action / RPG and castle defense. This game boasts battles of 300 soldiers on each side, but you can expect to run it on nothing less than the latest generation of devices. If you prefer something a bit more lighthearted and focusing on twitchy timing you’ll get a kick out of Cannon Cat (TMA Review). A daredevil feline, a mess of fish trapped in bubbles out in space, and some vicious penguins with helicopter “wings” make this whimsical offering a lot of fun.
(Street) Fighter fans rejoice! Capcom’s popular Marvel Vs Capcom series has made its way onto the iOS platform. Following in the footsteps of Street Fighter IV and Street Fighter IV VOLT, MARVEL VS. CAPCOM 2 packs a whooping 56 characters from both franchises and has fully optimized touchscreen controls for the iPhone and iPad. While this beloved brawler has graced the arcades and various consoles over the past decade, this is the first time that the game’s been officially ported to a mobile device. Other features for the iOS version include local multiplayer via bluetooth and an all new “Flick Button” that’ll allow players to easily pull off complex moves. As for device compatibility, MvC2 works on the iPhone 4/4S, iPouch Touch 4G and iPad 2/3. It’s also currently on sale at its special launch price of $2.99 until May 6th, after which it’ll be $4.99. Check out the video gameplay footage after the gap.
