We’ve got a double-wide show this week, in which the STPodcast crew (Steve, Jer, Phil, and Andrew) discusses the wonders of E3/WWDC, chats about the latest iPhone games, and ruminates over the iPhone 3GS and OS 3.0!
If you like Telltale’s excellent adventure games, and you dig HBO’s show (or GRRM’s novels) hurry to the App Store and download the first episode of Game of Thrones for free. Normally it would run you $4.99, but I assume this deal is to urge fans to buy the new fifth episode.
This week’s free G5 game is a particularly good one. It’s the tropical sim The Island: Castaway 2. The game normally costs $4.99 on iPhone and $6.99 on iPad, so be sure to grab it up if you don’t have it. Download the iPhone version here and/or the iPad version here.
This Spongebob game about life in Bikini Bottom normally runs $3.99, but it can be yours right now for free. Download it quickly if you’re into everyone’s favorite squishy, obnoxious, endearing character.
Tiger Style Games has announced a release date for its upcoming sequel Spider: Rite of the Shrouded Moon. It’s August 6, and to make the announcement even more exciting, they’ve released a brand new trailer. Watch it above. From Touch Arcade:
Man, I’ll tell you what, some things are just worth waiting for. Tiger Style originally teased the new Spider in the fall of 2013, and we got a hands-on demo of a seemingly pretty complete version several months later at GDC 2014. In fact, Tiger Style had hoped to have the game out before the end of 2014, but were committed to the “it’s done when it’s done” mentality. Obviously 2014 came and went, and most recently we went hands-on with Spider again this past March at GDC 2015, where it was looking better than ever. We even gave it a special nod as one of our picks for Best of GDC 2015.
