Pricecut for Galcon

Galcon, a strategy arcade game developed by Phil Hassey, has been dropped from $9.99 to just $4.99 in the App Store. You begin with a galactic playfield filled with all kinds of different planets. The green planets are yours, the grey ones are neutral and all planets with other colors belong to the enemy. Your goal is simple: get all planets. There’s also a new update for the game that has color blind option, Galcon music and an enhanced multiplayer interface.

DeepSpaceNewt for the iPhone gives us nostalgia

DeepSpaceNewt, DSNewt, Apple, iPhone, DejaVuOne of the few games available for the Apple Newton PDA was DeepSpaceNewt, a space-based strategy game that was also available for the Apple II computer. DejaVu is now giving us a DejaVu with DeepSpaceNewt for the iPhone. You play as either a Stigon bopper or an Amalgamation starship and your goal is to blast seven bells out of your enemy who’s using torpedoes and phasers. $7.99 sure is pricey for an iPhone game, but it’s pure nostalgia for all Mac fanboys. DeepSpaceNewt is retro gaming at its best, and it’s now available in the App Store.
