Does anyone know of any current or upcoming deals on the iPad? I'm planning on buying one as a Christmas gift and I'm trying to find the best price.

Only one I've heard of is TJ Maxx selling the 16gb wifi version for $399:

Is it mostly assigning workers to different game development related jobs and hiring new people, or does it have a creative element where you decide what type of game to produce and details about said game? I ask because there used to be this really simple game for my old Mac (Sim Cinema Deluxe or something like that) where you basically were a movie studio and had to choose a director, talent, made a name for you movie and then had to market it over a period of time before and after release. It was an awesome little game and I'm just curious if it has any of that creative aspect to it?


You select your staff (have different ways to choose from to "scout" for new employees), train, level up and each has their own skill to which you'll want to assign them a duty that fits their skill.

You'll develop several different genres of games for several different systems. Genres level up, and at certain points you'll unlock other genres by meeting certain goals.

The game is a LOT of fun and truly does have some replay value to it since every time you start another 20 year career your genres retain their levels that you previously got them to.

Hope this helps!!!

Beat me to it. I don't think you'll find a cheaper price than that.

I pass by one of these stores every week and have never stopped in before. I'd forgotten they exist until now.

How is the port of Phoenix Wright? I figure that the controls would be fine, since they're touch-screen and menu-driven by nature--it's not like trying to port a platformer to the iPhone, for Pete's sake--but did any features or visual zazz get lost in translation?

Here's something different: play an iPhone game on your TV with QuiziTV (http://itunes.apple....d395716075?mt=8), currently available for FREE.

"★ Do you want to play on your TV* using Video Motion Detection ★
Do you like Quiz? Enjoy playing with friends and family? Don't feel like using a remote controller?

We are introducing the First iOS game that will change your device into a video game console and you are using motion detection to play! Now you can extend the use of iPhone 4 or iPod Touch 4th generation to play on your TV*. Just plug and start playing! It works just fine.

☆ How does it work exactly and why is it unique? ☆

This is kind of unusual! First, it works on a TV, so we are breaking the bounds of the small screen and allow a broader audience to play and see the game. What really makes the difference, we spent a lot of time working on removing the needs for controllers! How? Well, we are using video motion detection and created iRisTouch® which allow you to virtually touch what you see and control the game. As a result, when the party starts there is NO MORE NEEDS TO TOUCH the device."

Sorry to hear about your car. I'll try to give you a few ideas to start you off. Now there are other paid games that I own and play occasionally (I've listed a few at the bottom), but these are the ones that I've gotten the most bang for my buck out of.

in no particular order
Paid games:
Angry Birds
Tilt to Live
Osmos
Plants Vs Zombies
Bit Trip Beat
Cut the Rope
Rimelands
Rage HD
Bejeweled 2

Free Games:
Mega Jump
Epic Citadel (not really a game so much as a pretty environmental exploration)
Topple
Cube Runner
Real Racing GTI

Free Apps:
AppShopper (Highly reccomend setting up your wishlist here and you'll get notifications if the price drops)
Giant Bomb
Flixster
1337pwn
Photoshop Express
Google Earth
VLC (if it wasn't taken down yet)
Facebook
Pandora
Meebo (If you use AIM. Support the landscape keyboard)

Be aware that there are lot of demo's out there. It's a demo if it says "lite" or even sometimes "free" after the title. Examples: "Katamari Lite" or "Hero of Sparta 2 Free"

Here's my "didn't make the list" list. Ones that I like, but wouldn't buy unless you get a good price on them:
Mirror's Edge
Myst
Flight Control
Crayon Physics
Slice it
Monkey Island 1 & 2
Zen Bound
The Incident


Thanks man, this really helps. I'll be looking into picking up a few of these titles/apps you listed. :)

I just bought it and it plays just fine. I've never played the DS version but it seems the same from what I've seen. Pretty interesting game.

I don't know what you guys are using as cases, but I bought a Griffin FlexGrip Action for my iPod Touch 4th Gen. It adds a wrist strap and a case that has ridges on the rear so it's more comfortable to play games in landscape view. I used to use the Elan Metal cases but it was too hard swiping side to side since the case was so much higher at the edges.

My only gripe is the screen gets dirty fast. I have a power support 3rd gen screen protector on it. It doesn't fit the 4th gen exactly, but the few millimeters that are not covered by the screen protector, are covered by the case just fine. As it wears I'll probably replace it with a 4th gen protector.

Uncovering the truth about this dangerous species, he boldly takes the fight to their doorstep. Join Keith in an intergalactic trek of exploration, pirates, space battles, weird aliens and romance.

STORY
After battling the Vossk in Galaxy on Fire 3D, a hyperdrive malfunction sends Keith T. Maxwell through space and time; awakening 35-years later at the far end of the galaxy, where a strange alien species is wreaking destructive havoc on the warring races occupying this volatile sector of space.

Despite his efforts to return home, Keith is drawn into a plot to investigate and stop this alien menace. Along the way he must fight, trade, explore and negotiate as he uncovers the truth about this powerful enemy, and ultimately find his way home.

Old friends and new enemies join forces as Keith takes command of a dangerous, intergalactic mission to fly deep into enemy space and bring the war to an explosive conclusion."

Zombie Crisis 3D has dropped to $.99 (http://itunes.apple....d395134487?mt=8)

"Zombie Crisis is an intense, finger-friendly 3D rail shooting game for the iPhone/iPod Touch.

Abandoning the 'traditional' joystick-based FPS, Zombie Crisis releases your fingers from the difficult movement & weapon control and delivers a new, innovative style that lets you focus on the action.

In Zombie Crisis, a bio-accident has taken place at the Argo Company, turning its infected staff into bloodthirsty zombies. When the disaster is about to sweep through the States, a female mercenary soldier, Dana, receives an order to investigate the situation at Argo's lab. Will her investigation lead to a one-way street into those dangerous zombies? Or will she find something even more dangerous than the Zombie Virus?"

If any ball reaches the bottom of the screen, you lose. If you destroy them all, you advance to the next level.
Game features unlimited levels, high definition graphics, leaderboards, achievements, Facebook & Twitter integration plus lots of bouncing balls. To maxamize your experience, we recommend iOS 4.1 or later with Apple's Game Center application."
