Mobile Monday №42
This intro paragraph was written under duress. I, a lonely garden gnome, am being held inside the house against my gnome will. I am being forced to eat vegetables, exercise regularly, and weave baskets as a hobby. If you read this, please send help. And cookies.
Rope'n'Fly 2 - Did you enjoy Rope Raider and Rope'n'Fly? I know I did. Swinging from building to building with but the tap of a finger has never been so... well, literal. Rope'n'Fly 2 improves upon the original Rope'n'Fly by adding weather effects and greatly improving the controls. You'll also find a handful of new modes and challenges to complete, along with online high scores that are practically impossible (for me, anyway) to beat. The free Rope'n'Fly 2 Lite is also available.
Red Planet - Walking the fine line between game and interactive multimedia experience, Red Planet is a 3D ambient adventure that features music by Christopher Franke, composer for the TV series Babylon 5. Move around the photorealistic world searching for the transmitter base, taking in the stunning scenery as night changes into day. There are a few basic tasks to complete, but really Red Planet is about experiencing Mars as if it were in your hands.
Edge - Did you miss it before? After a long (and rather pointless) series of legal battles, Edge is finally back on the iTunes App Store. The award-winning, stylistically beautiful platform game features over 40 levels of increasing complexity, plenty to keep you busy for days on end. Move around spacey geometric structures by dragging your finger across the screen to rotate the cube, climb stairs, collect prisms, press switches, ride platforms, and perform gravity-defying acts of awesomeness.
NOTE: Games listed may not be available outside of North America. Prices are subject to change and are therefore unlisted. Please see the individual game pages for purchasing info.
Yay, happy to see that Edge is back in business. It's a great game, sorry to see that that idiot Tim Langdell kept it off the app store for so long.
Edge's legal battle was with Edge Games, right? The ones who also tried to mess with EA over the name of Mirror's Edge?
*looks for more info*
I see EA petitioned the US Patent & Trademark Office in September to "cancel a range of registrations associated with EDGE Games", saying: "While this seems like a small issue for EA, we think that filing the complaint is the right thing to do for the developer community."
In iPhone-game-related news, Mobigames voluntarily took it off the App Store for a while to consider their options, and now it's back up - "Speaking with Kotaku, Papazian said, 'on the legal side, (Langdell) cannot claim anything against "Edge by Mobigame" and Apple knows that, so we hope everything will be alright now.'"
In other news, Tim Langdell was essentially forced to resign from the IGDA board earlier this year. Yay.
This is my first time reading this feature because I never had a smart phone. Now I do, but it's not an iPhone. Do you review mobile games for other platforms (mine is Android), or do you only review iPhone games?
They only review iphone games. Combined with the ipod touch, the iphone has the largest userbase, and a large supply of great games.
Plus, the members of the jig team have iphones. That helps too :)
Ah. I am quite appreciative of this feature now that i have an iPod touch. Thank you so much JayisGames :)
Is edge down again?
Yeah, Edge seems to be down again. It's really annoying cause I want to check it out. Bah!
