Siege Hero updated with Age of Discovery, 75 new levels

Armor Games have updated their iPhone and iPad game, Siege Hero.

Tap the screen to fire. Find the weak spots. Loot the treasures. Save the innocent villagers.

Tear down the 150 castles across two Ages. If you're good enough to earn Gold on each castle you'll unlock the extra looting levels in the Treasure Map. Over 5-hours of gameplay with much more to come.

The update includes:

  • Age of Discovery now available. Use your Siege skills to free the oppressed and become the Hero once again.
  • 75 new levels
  • 6 new characters
  • 7 new achievements
  • New Weapons
  • Many hours of challenging gameplay

I've played some of the first few levels of Siege Hero and I'll definitely be playing some more. It reminds me a little of Angry Birds, but instead of catapulting birds in the 3rd person, I'm throwing weapons in the first person. It's fun!

Siege Hero is available for $0.99 on the iPhone and $3.99 on the iPad. Screenshots after the break.

The iPad app is now available in Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, The Republic of Ireland, The Netherlands, Portugal, Spain and Switzerland.

Ed Emberley's Shake & Make for iPhone now available

Ed Emberley's Shake & Make, an iPhone puzzle game by Night & Day Studios, has been released.

The whimsical, learn-to-draw illustrations of Ed Emberley come to life with this quirky puzzle game. See the picture, study its layout, then shake your iPhone or iPod touch and the pieces will fall to the floor. Listen to vintage loops as you race against the clock to put the picture back together in under a minute.

  • Over 100 puzzles
  • Solve puzzles in 60 seconds, earn a higher score the faster you solve
  • Unlock higher levels with more complex images
  • Try Twirly mode for extra silliness!
  • Cool, retro music from the 70s
  • For younger kids: turn off the timer to allow more time to figure out the puzzle, or try solving the puzzle by tilting and rotating the phone and watch each piece snap into place.

I really like how Shake & Make is accessible for children and adults

Ed Emberley's Shake & Make is available on the iPhone for $1.99. Screenshots and video after the break.

Papa Penguin for iPhone free for one week!

Papa Penguin, a game by Ideal Bureaucracy, is free in anticipation of an update due to be released next week.

Papa Penguin is a cute casual arcade game for children and their parents about a caring penguin who puts all his efforts in trying to get some fish for his two little children. The kids are quite gluttonous, so hardly Papa fetches them some food, they instantly absorb it and demand more and more!

  • Collect the fish and take it to your little kids!
  • Be smart! It's not an easy task to get to the most delicious fish.
  • Don't forget about the oxygen! You have to plan your route to get all the fish to the surface!
  • Beware of poisonous jelly-fish and sharp-toothed sea raptors!
  • Enjoy your antarctic diving with the beautiful ambient underwater music.

The update will include the following:

  • Screen rotation – play in both portrait and landscape mode
  • Sound button – you can now turn off the sound and listen to the music on your iPod while playing Papa Penguin
  • Better controls – pause button and interface elements on the screen no longer prevent you from controlling your character. You can use any part of the screen to move Papa
  • Funny scuba gear on the Papa's back and other small graphical and gameplay improvements

Papa Penguin is free until next week's update release (and debut on the Mac App Store). Screenshots after the break.

iStandard Clock for i

eFUSION has released a new clock app for the iPad.

iStandard Clock" is designed for everyone looking for simplicity and functionality as iPhone standard clock application to fill the gap of missing clock application on their iPad.

  • Analog clock.
  • City wise time display.
  • Clock color changes on evening and morning.
  • Weekly/daily alarm repeat function
  • Alarm sound ON/OFF and built-in 4 patterns of sound.
  • Snooze ON/OFF
  • Alarm label/message
  • Support lap function
  • Sound ON/OFF and and built-in 4 patterns of sound.

It really is baffling why Apple did not include a standard clock app on the iPhone. Since iStandard Clock is identical to the standard clock app on the iPhone, it feels like it belongs natively on the iPad.

iStandard Clock is available on the iPad for $0.99. Screenshots after the break.

CallBar and Apptivator [Jailbreak]

CallBar and Apptivator are just two examples of the Jailbreak community being in full flurry this summer with what has been the most productive and innovative season of Jailbreak tweaks to date. At a time when people question the current value of jailbreaking with iOS 5 on the horizon, the jailbreak community have spoken up and demonstrated that they continue to advance and innovate where Apple stops short.

With a vast amount of new Cydia tweaks, thanks majorly in part to @rpetrich’s TweakWeek challenge, I will be talking about only two recent tweaks that demonstrate to any non-believer that Jailbroken iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches are the way to go!
