Today there have already been some notable new releases, including ZEN Studio’s free to play universal pinball game, Zen Pinball, XperimentalZ Games’ sidescroller Don’t Run With a Plasma Sword and The Berenstain Bears Trim the Tree, which showcases an all-new “lift-the-flap” interactivity to Oceanhouse Media’s omBooks.
However, tonight we’ll be seeing a number of interesting titles hit the App Store including Infinity Blade II, the highly anticipated sequel to ChAIR Entertainment’s best-selling sword fighting action game. This second outing adds 3 all-new styles of combat as well as some updates to the character customization and reveals more back story. At $6.99, this universal app is sure to be a hot seller.
Also on tap for tonight is a FREE Christmas-themed version of Toca Boca’s fun Toca Hair Salon app for kids, called Toca Hair Salon – Christmas Gift. My daughter Emily loves playing the original version of this game, now she can try her hand at trimming Santa’s beard or a Christmas tree. If you have kids, you’ll definitely want to grab this one.
Want more free entertainment? Then you can check out Gameloft’s cute looking farming simulation game, Green Farm 2 and Pixeljuice’s adorable-looking mini golf-like game, Egg Punch. Or try your hand at time management with G5 Entertainment’s Fix-it-up: World Tour,. This sequel to Fix-it-up: Kate’s Adventure, is available in separate releases for the iPhone and iPad.
XperimentalZ Games attempts the impossible, with The Bard’s Tale, a full-scale massive 3D epic role-playing game for iOS. A game which the developer claims is “the BIGGEST iOS game ever made!”. Chillingo is back with two more titles, Sparky vs. Glutters which appears to be a marble popper/ZUMA-like game and McGyro, a fun comical-looking Old West target shooting title. Both of these titles are universal apps…YAY!
Speaking of target practice, if you are in the mood to take out evil Elves you may want to check out Underground Pixel’s retro, holiday-themed shooter Holiday Havoc. Finally, rounding out tonight’s picks are Lander Hero a charming-looking cave-flying/rocket landing game for the iPad and (for those feeling destructive) there is the mayhem-filled BigBot Smash from Ayopa Games, which is currently on sale for 50% at launch.
