The Witcher is a very well-known (at least here in Russia) series of fantasy books that have only recently begun to enjoy world-wide fame thanks to the top notch Action RPG released on the PC a few years back. The iDevice version, however, is not quite connected to the superb PC release. In fact, it’s not connected to it at all. What is it then you ask? Well, it turns out The Witcher: Versus is a port of a browser-based dueling game.
This week saw some pretty notable releases, one of which was exclusive to the iPad. Top billing this week goes to Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP, which almost sounds like a medieval Sienfeld – a game about nothing. Still, the artistic nature of the game is supposed to be top notch, and it has garnered a lot of positive attention. For those who are a little more traditional there’s Final Fantasy III, the iOS port of the Nintendo DS remake of the 1990 NES game from Square Enix (then just Square). Got it? Next up is City Of Secrets, a tap and explore adventure game that pays homage to the greats from companies like Sierra Online while creating a world all it’s own. Finally, for the kid in you – or the kid you have at home – there’s Max And The Magic Maker, a platform game where the main character can make objects appear simply by drawing them with his trusty writing utensil.
