Earlier this year, Peter Molyneux, the creator of the RPG series Fable, left Lionhead Studios and joined up with indie developer 22Cans. They’ve just released a free game on the App Store called “Curiosity – what’s inside the cube.” To risk understatement, we’ll say that it has an unusual premise. Because the game is so unconventional, a standard review doesn’t really make sense here. Instead, we’ll give our first impressions and urge you to play it for yourself. (more…)
DotEmu’s been on something of a roll lately. They’ve recently released arcade classics like Metal Slug 3 and Blazing Star onto the App Store, with full iCade support so that the touch controls don’t get in the way of the action. Their next major arcade port will be Raiden Legacy, which contains four shoot-em-ups in one app. (more…)

EA Mobile has announced that Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12 will be coming to the iPhone and iPad at the end of the month. We got a chance to go hands-on with the game at GDC, and we can report that it was looking like a top-of-the-line golf sim already. The game will feature eight courses, lots of real golfers, sharp graphics, commentary, and most other features you’d want and expect from a golfing game. (more…)
When Alan Miranda, the CEO of Ossian Studios, contacted us about a new 3D Western RPG his company is working on, we were intrigued immediately. First of all, Mr. Miranda has impressive game-making credentials: Ossian Studios put out expansion packs for the classic PC series Neverwinter Nights, and Miranda himself used to be a producer for BioWare. Secondly, the iPhone game he’s working on, The Shadow Sun, draws inspiration from sources like Zelda, Fable, and H. P. Lovecraft. (more…)

ngmoco just updated its site with a teaser blurb on the KillTest video: “The official name of our FPS may still be a secret, but that has not stopped Arsenal Megacorp from leaking critical insights into its Experimental Combat Systems. Stage 2 (known as KillTest) is now live on fps.ngmoco.com, and it features our debut trailer.”
So, we were wrong. For the moment, KillTest is just what it sounds like–a “test” name for a killer-looking game. The post mentions that “Stage 3″ of ngmoco’s info drop will occur soon, hopefully with additional details.
We’ve just received a trailer from id Software for Doom Resurrection, and posted it at the end of the article.
