Sprinkle has long been a favorite of mine, since the very first time I played the Tegra exclusive version on Android. Despite being a casual game, the attention to detail was fantastic, and the water physics just superb. The good news is that Sprinkle is back with an all new title; Sprinkle Islands. I say all new in the sense that this is a sequel, not a reinvention of the original. It's definitely more of the same, but that's not a bad thing. Not at all. What the developers have done is taken everything that made the original a great game – basically everything – and added to it. There's more interaction in levels, there's more of the levels, generally there's more. Let's take a look.
Sprinkle has long been a favorite of ours on any platform, and today we get a whole new game to play through with the launch of Sprinkle Islands for iOS. Fans of the original will feel right at home, as the familiar water shooting, fire extinguishing action returns for another turn.
As is so often the way in the present day, a new blockbuster movie gets itself an official mobile game, and Disney's The Lone Ranger is no exception to this. Out now for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, saddle up as a Texas Ranger and protect the town of Colby in the old Wild West.
The Prince of Persia series has been around for almost a quarter of a century now, but it's back on July 25 with an all new game set to hit iOS. The Shadow and the Flame will follow the tried and tested sideways scrolling formula we know and love from the previous Prince of Persia games, but throws some stunning visuals into the mix as well.
Mirroring games from your iPhone to your Apple TV with AirPlay is great, but it's still just what's on the small screen blown up on the TV. This isn't the case in Motion Tennis. With this game, the mirrored content is something different to what's being displayed on your iPhone, which opens up a whole new experience. Think Nintendo Wii style gameplay, only using your iPhone as the remote, and your Apple TV as the console.
Layton Brothers Mystery Room for iOS isn't a port of one of the Professor Layton titles made popular on the Nintendo DS, but it's pretty darn close. Available now for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, Layton Brothers stars the son of the Professor, and detective extraordinaire, Alfendi Layton.
A new Stargate SG-1 game, Unleashed Episode 1, recently hit the App Store for iPhone and iPad, so as a fan of the show, I figured it was definitely worth a look. The game features the original cast of the show doing voiceovers for the characters, and an all new 'interactive adventure' storyline. So, how does it stack up?
With every big new comic book inspired movie, we seem to get an official tie in mobile game, and new Superman flick Man of Steel is no exception. Warner Bros will be releasing Man of Steel to iOS on June 14 for $2.99 for the iPhone and iPod touch, and $4.99 for the HD version for iPad.
Ahead of the All Star game in New York in July, MLB has released a new game into the App Store; MLB Home Run Derby. I love Baseball, despite being British, so as soon as I saw this in the App Store I had to take a look. It's a free download, and bases itself solely around one of the fun-to-watch extras of the All Star weekend, the Home Run Derby. So, a perfect casual game for the Baseball fan? Let's find out.
Should you pick up League of Evil 2? Only if you're a sucker for over 100 levels of punishment.
League of Evil 2 launched on iOS last week, making a big splash in the top 25. It's a pretty straightforward platform game with some smooth cortoon graphics. If there's one thing evil scientists hate more than irate lab monkeys and the pesky PETA people that inevitably follow, it's mercenaries with a cyborg arm and the singular goal of making them little more than a pile of gibs and goo.
