This week wasn’t so much “blockbuster release” as it was “cute casual goodness”. The one sports game of note was Madden NFL 12 by EA Sports, which among other things includes a staggering roster of 2500 playable characters! For Barry Steakfries fans the wait is over, as Jetpack Joyride has finally made its way to the App Store. I’m just glad they decided to go with a universal binary instead of just iPad, because this looks like a fun and crazy game. Old time gamers looking for a snazzy update to a classic should check out Frogger Decades from Konami Digital. There’s enough retro to get the nostalgia pumping, but enough new twists to make it feel fresh.
It’s been a little while since I’ve played a good maze game. They are one of those things that no matter what you do, or how you package it, the main goal is always quite simply to get from A to B. It’s unique in that the more simple it is, the more enjoyable it is. You don’t need a million dollar budget to make a maze game. You just need creativity. The folks at Ironshod Limited seem to have that coming out the ***. I recently was able to get my hands on their second appstore release Reverse Maze, read on to see if I found my way or got lost in the maze. Feel free to discuss this review of Reverse Maze in our forums.
