TiPb Apps 5.1: GodFinger for iPhone (GDC 2010)


This game seems interesting. I like the "plus" feature, which allows you to compete with friends. Social networking games are huge (ie facebook) and i'm glad ngmoco is really pushing for this. I hope its free for us too...

This game has taken over my afternoons. I have an unnatural attachment to these needy hippies and am constantly checking in on them. So far the gameplay is quite engaging and the design and animations are easy on the eyes.
Very fun. Glad I'm Canadian so I can play it. (Well, I'm glad I'm Canadian for all kinds of reasons. coughcoughuniversalhealthcarecough Seriously American, get on that.)

Looks very interesting and immersive (from what I could tell, when it was in focus)but I find social gaming to have excrutiating down times.

I would have already tried this out with my "Canadian" account but I've been left with a bad taste in my mouth after being unable to complete the tutorial in 'We Rule.'
Thanks for the footage though. If my girlfriend sees this, I don't think I'll have a choice but to download it.

I will not pay for any of the extra stuff, but man does this game look awesome. This mini Black and White cant reach the US app store fast enought

i feel like this game is going to be a hit! great way to get a social networking game like what fb is doing. it would have tons of players competing with one another. i just hope the servers don't get laggy from to many users

Ok, I really like this little game. I grew pretty bored of another certain deity-esque game, and this seems to really have a lot more going for it than "throw pygmy. Drown pygmy. Kind of do interesting mini game with pygmy."
Come to the US iTunes store! Stat!

I'm really looking forward to trying this game out when it's available in the US. It looks really fun, though I'm not so sure about paying real money for the 'awe' stuff..

So can you really play this without spending money? I don't mind buying apps up front (I own both Rolando games), but dislike the pay-as-you-go "free" app model.

Looks like fun, bring to US! Love that people are being more adventurous and really exploring the potential of the platform.
