ANGRY BIRDS RIO

it seems like they're attempting to create somewhat of a story this time (that is... a story with an actual ending).

lol, apparently not. :3.

I chose those words for a reason. It's more playable due to the better tilt threshold than the odd-feeling wiimote-spin tilt. Unfortunately, it looks worse, crashes, and the music and gameplay lose sync occaisionally making any of the add-on levels impossible. If the add-on levels didn't exist, I'd still be hard-pressed not to recommend the Wii version.

World of Goo didn't do anything for me on Wii or PC....using my overpriced touch-screen friendly device to make semi-physical contact with arbitrary blobs of boredom while solving offensively simple puzzles doesn't sound like it'd be any better :)

Gotta respect you for attempting that self-contradiction quote though...it almost worked ;)

Civilisation Revolution is at its best on iPad.

Just a couple of recommendations from me, based on what I've been playing and reviewing recently:

Tactical Solider: Undead Rising is really good fun, if a little short for a Tactics RPG. Highly recommended - especially on iPad.

Bird Zapper is just awesome. Everything about it tells me it deserves to be the next Angry Birds.

Also, I dunno if anyone's heard of this one, but it's been around for a while - a little game called Ascendancy is a bit like a galatic version of Civilisation, with huge depth and really intuitive, challenging gameplay.

Anyone know if Mission Europa is worth getting? It's getting pretty positive reviews at most places like TouchArcade and from user reviews on the App Store, yet many reviewers are also giving it negative reception. I'm kinda thinking about getting it, but I'd like to hear some partially reliable input first, lol. D:

I didn't know Ascendency was on there. I've heard a lot of good things about it, and I myself have a copy that I've never actually played. I'll have to get to that sometime, I've been playing a lot of Civilization lately.

And speaking of space 4X games, I hope Master of Orion comes to the iDevices, too, or at least to the iPad.

If you are in the US and have an Android phone, Flight Control is today's free paid app on the Amazon Appstore. Heck, if you're in the US and have an Android phone, check the Amazon Appstore every day for the free paid app. There have been quite a few gems already. Just be careful in the rest of the store, as you have to enable one-click.

Cave has made a great sale for iDevices lowering all of the prices by 4$.

http://www.cave-world.com/en/sp/1stanniversary-sale/

Espgaluda II: 8.99 -> 4.99
Dodonpachi Resurrection: 8.99 -> 4.99
Mushihemesama Bug Panic: 4.99 -> 0.99

I recommend you all to check out Cave's games because, for the most part, they are all quality and worth your money. Plus, they specialize in flash bullet hell-style games and you can't go wrong with those. ;P

I'm on the Game Center. I think my name is something along the lines of TruFaith, OtakuMei, TokyoOtakuMei or TokyoOtaku.

Here is another great game from the people who brought us Zenonia!

Bug Heroes is free for "a limited time only". Haven't played it myself yet, but it's meant to be one of the better dual stick shooters available on the app store combining "rpg elements, tower defense, action and adventure."
So, yeah, just saying.
EDIT: Also "World Of Goo" has just come out for the iphone/ipod touch, and is 59p for, again, a "limited time only".

Oh yeah, and WoG is insanely good. Get it.

Asphalt 6 is awesome. It's crazy fast, and eliminating other cars is soooo much fun. xD Lots of cars and customization. Online works good too, though the beginner cars can't really keep up with the others.

You'd be crazy not to pick this up while it's at 99 cents.

Only issues are that the framerate could be smoother on iPad 1, and the drift mechanic feels kinda choppy.

Awesome Games:

Forget-Me-Not: Pure retro action at its best. Imagine pacman. Now imagine a more action packed and refined pacman. Now imagine it combined with an endless roguelike game, with its own interesting mechanics thrown into the mix. Youve got an insanely fun game with a presentation that truly nails the retro feel. Get it. Now.

Hot Springs Story: Sure, its not as relatable as Game Dev Story, but it sure is much deeper. Suprisingly deep from the look of the game. Managing targets, investment options, upgrading facilities, placing facilities in the perfect strategic position, adding adequate scenery, adding effects to facilities to attract certain audiences, seperating sections dedicated to audiences, using items to upgrade facilities, managing price vs. popularity, appealing to magazines, etc. Sure it may not be as deep to people who are really into sim games, but this one is still very fun and approachable. Definitely a buy.

World of Goo: Do I really need to explain this? Its 99 cents, just get this amazing piece of code.

Also, it seems like the new NOVA game will only be multiplayer (this not yet confirmed). If this is true, then Gameloft has a winner. That would rock my world.

@Pixy: Is Asphalt 6 that good? Ive been hesitant due to how consistant this frame rate issue has been on the entire series. I liked Asphalt 5 on my phone, but after a while I gave up due to the frame-rate. Im also wondering how it stacks up to Asphalt 3D as well...

I've been playing a little game called Grove Keeper like mad. It's not out yet, but when it is, it's probably worth buying - gave it a 3.5/5

@Gabe: I'm enjoying it way more than Real Racing 1, that's for sure. It's very, very arcade-y. My first impressions were typical Gameloft impressions: Framerate's a bit so-so, animation and polishing are kinda choppy, but it's hella fun at its core.

Not really sure how long it'll last me, but I definitely recommend it for 99 cents. 7 bucks? Not so much.

On a slightly related note, I just bought Knights of the Old Republic from the Mac App Store. It's awesome, and runs silky smooth on my iMac '10 most of the time. :3
