Still, there are some games whose absences are keenly felt. Here's a roundup of games that are still missing in action on the Mac platform.

Strange Flavour offers sneak preview of new iOS games

Aaron Fothergill is a veteran Mac game programmer who turned his attention to iOS as soon as Apple let him. The result is some of the biggest hits published by legendary game maker Freeverse, which has since been acquired by Ngmoco (which itself was acquired by Japanese publisher DeNA). Fothergill's company Strange Flavour treks on, however, now as developer and publisher of its own unique content on iOS. It has a fun slot car racing game called Slotz Racer which just got a major overhaul, and is working on new games including Apple Dash - which features parallax moving backgrounds similar to iOS 7 - and Any Landing, a fun game that involves crashing airplanes. He recently gave us a sneak peek at WWDC.

How to get iMore to cover your apps and games

Today's Talk Mobile was all about helping developers better market their apps. Media outlets like iMore are an important part of that marketing, yet like any resource, we have our limits. We get dozens of app submissions a day and sometimes hundreds a week, but we only have time to cover a handful. And as much as we love developers and apps, we love our readers even more, and take our responsibility to them incredibly seriously. We're only ever going to offer them the very best apps and games we can find. To put it bluntly, if something looks or works like crap, we're not going anywhere near it.

So, if you're a developer and you've made an amazing app or game, what's the best way to ensure it gets featured on iMore? There's no absolute answer to that question -- it's a classic chaos equation -- but there's a lot of things that can help, and a few that can hinder:
