I went back on Steam and downloaded Terraria ... played for a half hour (with about 10 hours logged from long ago) and I hated the controls. I hated clicking for each swing or on each block. The ipad controls worked with more fluidity for me once I got the hang of it. I've never been a big fan of Terraria to begin with, I find it to be mildly charming but nowhere near the fun of something like minecraft, but for .99 I got my money's worth.
I wouldn't personally spend $30 for it on a console or however much it's going for on Vita.


You know you can hit the ALT key on the keyboard and it switches to the same "smart" mode that is on the consoles, where you don't have to target individual blocks, right?

Still doesn't let you use a 360 controller natively on the PC version though. ;) I just found it more addicting on the iPad in a way the PC version didn't grab me.

How long is the game total? Do you think I'll have any complaints using an iPhone 5s? I am upgrading to the 6+ as soon as my Verizon has them in stock.

And since you seem to enjoy the same kind of games I do... Have you tried the GBA emulator for the iPhone? I just want to throw this out of left field to a fellow Fire Emblem fan... The Last Promise is a complete rom hack that very well could be one of the greatest games I've ever played and I highly recommend you at least Google it.


I think the game can take 8-10 hours on the extremely fast side if you are playing easy or know what you're doing and skip dialogue and any extra battles you can (there's a risk/reward mechanic where after fighting a battle, you can attempt another right away for possible items or extra exp to level up. I always chose to do them since exp can be scarce, but if you didn't play the first battle well, the second one could be really tough and you might die since you start with whatever health and units you have left and not fresh).

I personally took 20+ hours, min/maxing my characters efficiently which you are used to as a FE fan. Spreading exp is easier, since kills are all that counts, not what kind of baddie was killed. And you might take longer should you lose a key character or decide to invest in one for their different skill sets.

I think the 5s had a newer chip than my itouch 5th gen, so it might help. Dialogue can be a little tiny and if you can, I recommend on a laptop or iPad for a better experience. But if you are used to srpging on a mobile, you would probably still be ok.

And I have played TLP and enjoyed it as well. The sole creator did a great job with the animations and music. You are probably also looking forward to the Immortal Sword project as well? It's been in the making for a long time but the main dev makes awesome sprite animations. And then don't get me started on playing Japanese FE hacks with really good sprite work!

I've been looking forward to so many hacks but they all seem to get delayed or canceled which is understood.

The Dream of Five version that I played about a year ago was outstanding but I honestly feel like TLP is just as good as FEGBA is.

I supposed I'm gonna give banner saga a shot. I love SRPGs and ones like FFT are getting more scarce each year

Indeed they are. From what I have played, it is not on the same level of FFT of course, but I hardly expected that. It is a good SRPG though and easily worth the $5 if you have a good device to play it on.

The Magic 2015 full game unlock (Hunt bigger game) and expansion pack are on sale for $4.99 and $1.99 respectively.

Just noticed on AppSnatcher that "Magic 2014 - Duels of the Planewalkers" has 2 significant IAP price drops:

  • Magic 2014 Premium Content Pack ... $1.99 (was $9.99)
    Spoiler
  • Magic 2014 Expansion ... $0.99 (was $4.99)
    Spoiler

Of course my iPad is only a v1 model, and this game requires iOS 6.0 or later, so I'm screwed out of this great deal. :(

Thought I would just chime in about Terraria on iOS. I've always been interested in the game on PC but since I never play games on PC any more I kinda forgot about it until it went on sale for a $1. I have to say I LOVE this game, it's super addicting for someone who just loves exploring for exploring's sake (Fallout 3 for example). Plus there is Cloud save option for both your character and world, so I can play on my iPad at home and on my iPhone when I'm out and bored. I'll agree that I have difficulty with the touch screen controls at times (getting up a rope ladder is a major pain) but overall they're great. Anyway, fantastic game!

 

I also got the Goat Simulator game, that one's a blast too.

In non-gaming deals, Media Browser Client has dropped to $0.99.  Never used XBMC or Plex, but have used Media Browser almost since its inception (pre-server days) and it's amazing to see how it has evolved.

This thread has been a bit quiet lately, just to keep it moving ... can anyone tell me what the most graphically intensive game out for iOS would be? I'm looking for something that really puts the new Iphone 6 through its paces. I know the power hasn't been maxed out, but what's something that runs better on a 6 than prior models?

Shades is the Apple app of the week. A really clever and challenging take on Tetris. I played 5 or so games and it gets a solid recommendation from me.

Anyone have any advice on getting iTunes to run more smoothly? It feels like a constant lag fest every time I try to manage my apps. I'm guessing there isn't much that can be done but I'm seriously thinking of attempting a fresh install.

Haha, no thanks .. been down that road before and, as someone who grew up with macs, I can't stand some of Apple's design choices in OSX.

Why would you want to play it on either? It's so boring and tedious and repetitive. No thanks.

Hey now, Bioshock was great for its time. I'd love to see an HD upgrade someday or actually more of a remake the way they rebooted Doom.

Bioshock *is* in HD. It originally released on PS3 & 360, not PS2 or DOS or something.

It released nearly 8 years ago on the Unreal 3 engine, it could be remade using Unreal 4 and look similar or better than the much shorter Bioshock Infinite DLC. Bioshock 4k =p
