In Popple, a random rainbow of colored bubbles pours from the top of the screen, like you’ve upended a huge box of Skittles. The goal is to seek out and pop a specific sequence of colors, quickly and repeatedly, before the curtain literally drops on your game. Oh, and the pattern is constantly shifting, too. (more…)

Robert Casperson’s Bionic Surfer is one of those indie gems we really wish we saw more of on the App Store–a fun, professionally polished game with a sense of humor to boot. Those in the mood for a platformer with lots of puzzles and hidden treasures are in for a treat. (more…)
Gameloft’s Rise Of Lost Empires, a real-time strategy game that looks a bit like a Warcraft II homage, tells a tale as old as time. It’s good versus evil, light versus darkness, man versus touch controls… waitasec, that last one isn’t supposed to be in there! But it is, unfortunately, and it turns what could have been a competent RTS into a messy, frustrating free for all. (more…)

The sport of basketball might have started in a Massachusetts gym with a couple of peach baskets and a soccer ball, but its spiritual home is the urban playground, where swaggering athletes talk trash and perform superhuman feats of agility.
From hip-hop to high fashion, everyone wants a piece of street basketball–including Battery Acid Games, who recently put Streetball on the App Store for $1.99. While we’re happy to see the iPhone get more hoops games, this one should stay benched, as you’ll be done with it in minutes. (more…)

Gameloft rates as one of the top publishers on the App Store along practically every metric. The Paris-based firm has dozens of iPhone titles on sale–which have produced beaucoup bucks for its bottom line–and many of its games have been hits with the critics as well, such as Terminator Salvation and Siberian Strike.
Gameloft produces games for many other casual platforms as well (including feature phones, Android, the Nintendo DSi, and Xbox Live Arcade, to name a few), but the iPhone seems to be one of its most important outlets. We sat down with Gameloft’s President and CEO, Michel Guillemot, to learn about the company’s reaction to Apple’s WWDC announcements, as well as its ongoing plans for the platform. (more…)
We had a chance to sit down with Simon Oliver of Hand Circus to get a personal demo of Rolando 2: The Golden Orchid at ngmoco’s WWDC party, a short distance from the convention center. From what we’ve seen so far, the second Rolando entry is looking great as it heads into the development home stretch. (more…)
Command & Conquer is one of the real-time strategy genre’s biggest names. It’s produced eight games since the series started back in 1995, along with many expansion packs, across three different mini-franchises. Now the series is making war on the RTS-starved iPhone in the form of Command & Conquer: Red Alert. We took a look at a pre-Alpha build of the game at EA’s booth and whooped some Soviet behind! Details after the jump. (more…)

Last Day Of Work’s Virtual Villagers franchise has proven very popular on casual games portals, as well as the App Store. We checked in with the developer at E3 to get a first look at Virtual Families, where the primitive islanders have been swapped out for little people who live in a modern dollhouse with all the amenities. Details after the break! (more…)
