      This week on Slide To Play we reviewed both Final Fantasy games, plus the spectacular Artist Colony, Transformers G1 Awakening, and Brothers in Arms 2. We also covered some disappointments like Rise of the Triad and Noby Noby Boy.

      The big news this week was the controversy surrounding Apple’s censorship of the App Store, Ngmoco’s purchase of Freeverse, and the recent news that iPhone has taken third place in the smartphone wars. Read on for all our big stories of the week.
