I’m not a big fan of first person shooters, but I do like the occasional action game, so options like the Time Crisis series fit the bill nicely. The iDevice is the perfect portable platform for such games as well, since the touch screen does a decent job of simulating the light gun control. FPS purists will most likely cringe at this game since they don’t get the control they think they need, but for people like me who need a bit more structured chaos, TIME CRISIS 2ND STRIKE works perfectly.
I think the talk of the town this past week was Pocket Frogs, a game that’s probably making its developer more money via in-app purchases (IAP) than most games make through a simple up front price tag. Apparently the concept of breeding frogs electronically is a lot more appealing than I would have expected. If you’d like something a little more action oriented Namco certainly delivers with the sequel to its popular rails shooter, Time Crisis 2nd Strike. On the other hand, if your tastes are more cerebral than you might want to check out the puzzle game Beyond Ynth, the story of a bug on a mission. And for those that are still hoping your iDevice will turn into a PC some day there’s EA’s latest installment of their popular Sims franchise, Sims 3 Ambitions.
