As much as I love my Xbox 360 and PS3 consoles, chilling upside on a couch with an iPad playing some Kingdom Rush is sometimes the better alternative. The iOS platform has no shortage of quality games, and imitations of those titles, and it’s getting some fresh blood soon in the form of a Capcom classic, a whiskey-voiced blockbuster and something new from Tim Schafer and the gang at Double Fine.
Middle Manager of justice is the first iOS game ever made by Double Fine, as their partnership with Darcogen Inc has come up with a title that puts players in the average shoes of a middle manager, the man tasked with keeping the world safe by hiring new heroes, and filing form A4-5 in triplicate. That one will be out soon, and will also be free-to-play.
Cult classic game Bastion has just arrived on iTunes, bringing with it the hammer and gravelly tones of action that made it a success. It’s on the store right now, and you can pick it up for $4.99.
Lastly, Capcom is bringing their iconic attorney to the ten inch screen, Phoenix Wright, and all his objectioney glory as well. They’ve transferred the first three games into this collection with an HD makeover, and they’ll also include the addition of “responsive on-screen controls fine-tuned for the iOS platform.”
You’ll also be able to do a little bit of communication in the collection with Everyone Object mode, which has been described as a system to “help players communicate their displeasure of everyday situations with the help of popular Ace Attorney characters and sayings.”
That’ll be out later this year, with players getting the option to purchase each game on its own, or as part of a complete trilogy.
