It's like Christmas in July! Plants vs. Zombies just got a retina display update.

Unfortunately, the update kept making my game crash so I had to delete and re-download it. Let's hope that it will feel like a new experience at least. :3

For people who are fans of board games:

Make sure you pick up Puerto Rico. It's just been released and it's one of the very best board games of all time. The iPad version is decent too.

And if you haven't already, Ticket to Ride. That game is pure genius.

The Puzzle Agent games are on sale. I know the series has some hardcore fans, so they're worth looking into. I'd pick them up myself but I'm flat broke.

@WaltzElf, after the food for thought that you and Mickeymac gave me yesterday in regards to 'iGaming' being true handheld gaming or not I decided to give it a go for one last time. I ventured into the Apple App Store and decided to take a look at the RPG's and that's when I stumbled across Chillingo's 'Emberwind'. The game is so excellent that I was deeply intertwined into it that I forgot about my iPod Touch's battery level and I played it until my iPod suddenly died on me. I hit the sacks afterward. It was like nearly 11:00 PM. That's how long I played. In fact, this game is just as good as if not better than Sierra's The Hobbit!

If I manage to finish this game before the weekend is over I'll write up a short review of it for 'Digitally Downloaded'.

Thanks again WaltzElf, if it weren't for your words and those of Mickeymac yesterday I'd be missing out on this game!

Groove Coaster is a complete blast. Amazing presentation. I personally love the soundtrack and the game is very fun. A must buy.

Chillingo also made "Cut the Rope". If you like physics-based puzzle games, I highly suggest you try it out.

I just went to Chillingo's website, and at the bottom it says (C) 2011 Electronic Arts. EA owns Chillingo? Since when?

Gameloft pulled Let's Golf and Let's Golf 2 from the App Store in favor of their freemium modeled Let's Golf 3. Kinda pisses me off. :/

@Waltz: How are the controls in NyxQuest?

Edit: Just googled for NyxQuest iPad review and digitally download's review was on the first page. Very cool!

NyxQuest controls really well on iPad - mostly because the traditional controls it requires are limited - you only need buttons for walking left and right and jumping. The touch screen is in most ways superior to the WiiMote for this game's gesture controls.

I really recommend it. Espcially since it's so cheap on the 'Pad.

OMG OMG OMG iBlast Moki 2 is coming into sight! Must.....resist....NO! I must buy this!

Oh and Rage is free atm. I have not tried it myself, but I have to say it sure is a pretty one. It is very near to IB as far as technically advanced graphics go, and the art style uses the hardware quite well.

Anomaly looks rather sweet as well. Might be fun to try, as it does something different in a genre plagued by repetition.

After all this time, Forget Me Not is a small indie game I actually continuously return to. It is not very popular, but I very much recommend it. This is the right way to create new retro arcade experiences on iOS and is a blast to play. It brings rogue-like, an improved pacman, and a shoot-em-up aspects into a very delicious experience.

Oh thanks for the tip on Rage Gabe. Downloading both versions now.

Nah, don't. It's still a tower defense game. It's just that here the 'towers' move and the monsters don't. It's actually not even that good as a tower defense game.

Hmm, I guess that's a shame. At least it's pretty. Unfortunately, that's not good enough.

Aralon: Sword and Shadow is only 99 cents right now, which is an absolute steal. Just picked it up and it's pretty good so far!

I also picked up Contre Jour and Pirates!, both of which are really solid so far.

Contre Jour is the best puzzle platformer physics thingamagame I've ever played. It's drop dead gorgeous and consistently brilliant.

I'm liking Aralon too. It's a bit rough, but fun at its core.

I'm shamelessly addicted to Sid Meier's Pirates... Like. I don't even care to count the number of hours I've played it since I bought it a couple days ago. My only complaint is that it can feel monotonous at times. It's also running surprisingly well - it's only crashed on me once or twice.
