Don't normally go in for those arena-action games, but ugh, Spellsword is ridiculously addictive and fun. The collision could use a few tweaks, but great game.

Yes, like I said. Because you don't level up as adventurer, chances are 100% that a trophy will be a new class. Trophies only come from special monster kills, I thought that was given knowledge, sorry :D becomes fairly obvious after the first 2,3 trophies that they only drop from special monsters. Can be any kind of special monster though, and it still drops randomly. Again:

If you only want to unlock classes as fast as possible, play adventurer.

If you don't care about "fastest", play whatever class you like, you'll level up that class AND unlock classes, and also get better scores. (because the other classes are definitely better :P )

And their other game, Terra Noctis, is fantastic platformer.

Wow, that's pretty impressive. I care so much about achievement points on iOS that whenever I delete a game, I remove it from Game Center. They never really felt quite right.

Wow-I've been purposely grinding away lately at them and I'm only at 22K.

:(

although to be fair I've been spending a lot of time in Infinity Blade multiplayer to get the "100 wins with Knight" and "100 wins with Titan" achievements-and they are taking FOREVER. I wish there was some kind of progress bar on that....

Just picked up my very first iPad and, after a year and a half break from any iOS devices, am excited to see how far the games have come.

Already spent 5hrs sat just trying everything out... It passed in the blink of an eye, so it's looking good. No sleep for me tonight!

The Carcassonne one was the longest-lasting one by far (and would still be going if I hadn't folded it for the broader iOS-board-games one) but for regular iOS flavor-of-the-week crap? Naaah

For those keeping score:

SF4, KOF-i - controls work, feel good
MVC - game and controls don't quite feel right, could be fixed
MK - broken mess

I finally completed Incoboto tonight. I played it in little bursts, especially when I got stuck, but the game was really a joy to play. For those that don't know, it's a puzzle platformer with these Galaxy-esque spherical worlds, but with mind bending environment puzzles more like a metroidvania game or even Portal. I was pleasantly surprised by how approachable the game was, although some of the puzzles were a bit too fiddly at times, and the later worlds could be daunting with their size. The game helpfully hints to the next star pieces you need though, and leads you through gently without handholding too much.

And the ending was brilliant. After slowly proceeding through the whole game and earning every step of it at the end you get a jetpack and can fly around the levels with inpunity, picking up the remaining star pieces in short order. It's incredibly liberating and gives you a feel of real power, and was a fantastic way to end the game. Felt a lot like Half Life 2 in that regard.

Highly recommended though. Anyone else play this?

Next up: Waking Mars. Bring it!

Incoboto is probably my favorite iOS game, I loved everything about it. It also has one of my favorite soundtracks on iOS, it made every planet seem so lonely.

How is Pages compared to Word when importing? I have Numbers and am completely dissatisfied with it when comparing it to Excel. I was really hoping to have the same features but it is far from that.

Bar Oasis 1.5 released a few days ago. It's a free stand-alone story that bridges the gap between the original Bar Oasis and Bar Oasis 2 (which is coming out in a few weeks). To anyone that didn't check out the original it's half visual novel, half bar tending thing (with a full drink recipe book that can be used out of game). I had a good time with the first one, and am probably going to check out 1.5 tonight. Will report back.

http://itunes.apple.com/app/bar-oasi...521430104?mt=8

And if you're interested in the original: http://itunes.apple.com/app/bar-oasis/id433902000?mt=8

I've been addicted to Spacechem these past few days. Was getting bored of most games lately and I needed something refreshingly unique like this. Really tests my design and problem solving skills without being stressful. Extremely satisfying whenever you solve something that stumped you just a while ago. Even though it's early goings, it's easily one of the best iOS games I've played.

I bought it and Im using the new ipad and is very sluggish not exactly the experience that I want from Max Payne.

I would have thought that the ipad is more than sufficient to run MP at max with high frame rate..... but no

I just started playing Waking Mars today. Holy hell, that shit is polished. On a complete other level to Spider. Jetpack controls are taking me a while to get used to though.
Be interesting to see what their sales are like now that it hit $3. I know that was enough to push me over the edge (though really, it shouldn't have been. It's only $2 FFS).
