Even with such adventures as HECTOR: Badge of Carnage Ep1 (TMA Review), 1112 episode 01, episode 02 (TMA Review) having great success on the App Store and earning a well-deserved place in iTunesâ€™ featured section, one originally designed for the iDevice is still a rare guest on my iPhone. Of course there are many reasons for this, both financial and not, but it still pains my heart to see this happen. Nevertheless as the platform matures, we are starting to see more and more developers stepping up to fill the void and who knows, maybe some will earn the right to join our The App Storeâ€™s Best Adventure. Tonightâ€™s contender is The Train episode 01, so letâ€™s see if it stands up to the challenge.
Well the big boys decided to come back and play this week, so there are quite a few new and interesting offerings on the App Store.Â Of course the magic is in the air with LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4, released to coincide with the outbreak of the latest film.Â If you canâ€™t get enough of him on the big screen, now you can control him and a bunch of his friends on the small screen in all their blocky glory.
If the Sci-Fi machinations of George Lucas are more your style thereâ€™s Star Wars Arcade: Falcon Gunner, the first Star Wars game to use AR to enhance the gameplay.Â You get to take your seat at the guns of the Millennium Flacon and blast Tie Fighters out of the sky â€“ what could be better?Â If you like shooting but prefer a grittier post-apocalyptic setting thereâ€™s Rage, the new on-rails shooter from ID Software that makes you the star of a TV show where youâ€™ll be hunted by hungry mutants.Â And, in our weekly dose of â€œwho has the best freemium MMO nowâ€ thereâ€™s Kingdom Conquest from SEGA, an MMO that combines RPG dungeon crawling, SimCity kingdom building and forging alliances to rule the world.
