Consumer-page for Game Center on Apple’s site

iPhone games, Game Center, Apple, iPod TouchFollowing today’s releasedate announcement of Game Center at today’s keynote, Apple has now placed a Game Center information page on its website to get you ready for Game Center. It does give some info on how you will be able to login, that once you are logged in you stay logged in even if you leave the app and you will be able to change your public nickname. The page doesn’t really reveal any new information, but it’s definitely worth a visit if you like Apple’s productpages and nice pictures.


Flight Control, iPhone games, Real Racing, Firemint, Game Center, iPhone 4, Cloudcell

Right after Apple announced new Game Center and its November release, Firemint sent us an email to let you know that it will seamlessly incorporate Apple Game Center features into its hit games Flight Control and Real Racing via the Cloudcell platform. The Game Center features for these games will be available on the supported devices (iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and iPod touch 3rd and 4th generation), and will also be mirrored on Cloudcell to offer the same features to the non-supported devices. The Game Center features should be introduced right after Game Center is released, updates will of course be free.

Firemint will seamlessly incorporate Apple Game Center features into its hit games Flight Control and Real Racing via its Cloudcell platform. The features will be available on supported devices (iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and iPod touch 3rd and 4th generation), but will also be mirrored on Cloudcell whenever possible to offer similar functionality on older devices. Features such as achievements and leaderboards will be available in the game itself, on the Cloudcell web site or via Game Center. We hope Game Center features will be available in our games (as free updates) as soon as Game Center is released.


App Store, Epic Citadel, Epic Games, Game Center, iPhone games, Project Sword, Unreal Engine 3We already mentioned in our Apple Game Center post that Mark Cubbs from Epic Games took the stage during Steve Jobs’ press conference to show of a demo of Project Sword. The reason this game looks so impressive is that it’s running on the Unreal Engine 3. The good news is; the other tech demo that was shown is now available in the App Store for free, just search for Epic Citadel and rake it in!

Epic Citadel is a nice demo that lets you explore a medieval city and lets you travel through a mysterious cathedral. Don’t expect too much from it, just give your eyes a little feast and spend a lot of attention to the gorgeous graphics of this “game”. As Towelie said it: “Don’t forget to bring your towel”, because you’re going to want to clean that drool of your iPhone/iPod screen after seeing the graphics in this amazing tech demo!


New iPod Touch introduced, is like an iPhone 4 without the phone

iPhone 4, iPod Touch, Retina, Apple, iPhone games, Face Time, iPod Touch 4th generationDuring his press conference filled with announcements of new iPod and music-related products, Steve Jobs was joking about the fact that everyone is calling the iPod Touch “an iPhone without the phone”. A few seconds later, the CEO announced the new iPod Touch that is an iPhone 4, but without the phone in it. The iPod Touch has all the new features of the iPhone 4 including the gorgeous Retina display, a new camera on the back that shoots HD footage including HD video, a front camera that can be used for Face Time between iPods and iPhones. The only thing that looks different from the hardware side is the thickness of the device. The iPod Touch is still thinner than the iPhone 4, and it’s even thinner than the last generation iPod Touch. The new iPod Touch devices, available with 8 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB, will be available next week. Here’s some pricing and release date information from Apple’s press release:

iPod is the world’s most popular family of digital music players with over a quarter billion sold. Apple’s new holiday lineup includes a brand new iPod shuffle® for just $49; the amazing new iPod nano® with Multi-Touch™ starting at just $149; the incredible new iPod touch with Retina display, Apple’s A4 chip, FaceTime, HD video recording and Game Center starting at just $229; and the iPod classic® in a 160GB model for $249.

Pricing & Availability

The new iPod touch will be available next week for a suggested price of $229 (US) for the 8GB model, $299 (US) for the 32GB model and $399 (US) for the 64GB model through the Apple Store® (www.apple.com), Apple’s retail stores and Apple Authorized Resellers. iPod touch requires a Mac® with a USB 2.0 port, Mac OS® X v10.5.8 or later and iTunes 10 or later; or a Windows PC with a USB 2.0 port and Windows Vista or Windows XP Home or Professional (Service Pack 3) or later and iTunes 10 or later. Existing second and third generation iPod touch users can update to iOS 4.1 free of charge on September 8 to enjoy new features including Game Center.


Apple’s Game Center coming in November in iOS 4.2 update

Apple, Game Center, iPhone, iPod Touch, iPhone 4, iOS 4, iOS 4.1, iOS 4.2, iPhone gamesDuring his press conference, almighty Steve Jobs announced next week’s release of iOS 4.1 next week. This free firmware update for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad will introduce a bunch of bug fixes and small features. The iOS 4.2 update that will come out in November will be a lot more cooler since this update will bring some exciting new features such as of course Apple’s Game Center.

Steve Jobs dedicated quite some time to Game Center, and showed off some nice features along with Mike Capps from Epic Games. They presented the game Project Sword (codename); a sword fighting game with astonishing graphics, an amazing framerate and a multiplayer mode. Game Center will be all about multiplayer games said mister Jobs. You’ll be able to challenge friends, create duel games and compare scores with other gamers.

It looks like Apple is going to start taking gaming really serious now. This Game Center should become what Xbox Live is to the Xbox 360; one of the most vital things that keeps the platform rocking. The point collecting should be a great method to keep gamers going and to create a community aspect. As of now, there aren’t really any other games that Apple announced as Game Center games, but we know that a lot of developers will implement Game Center features in their existing games and are about to develop new games that support Game Center.

Fast and Furious

Fast and Furious, iPhone, iPhone game reviews, iPhone games, iPod TouchRacing games and the iPhone is a match made in heaven. The in-built tilt technology lends itself perfectly to manoeuvring the car as it mimics a steering wheel. Unlike many other racing games the developers of Fast and Furious really seemed to have nailed the interface between the game controls and the iPhone’s accelerometer. There is no ridiculous over steer or need to tilt your iPhone too far in one direction to make the car budge an inch. Sensitivity is often a problem with racing games but Fast and Furious has been perfectly calibrated to provide players with a game that feels realistic but with an element of control in place.

Wild West Pinball

Wild West Pinball, iPhone game reviews, iPhone games, iPhone, iPod TouchPinball games in any setting are great fun, so playing Wild West Pinball for the iPhone is always going to provide you with hours of entertainment. Rather unsurprisingly the aim of the game is to get as many points as you can by nudging nodes, bouncing bonuses and generally pelting your ball to within an inch of its life. You get three balls to get the best score possible and the game makes excellent use of the iPhone’s touch screen technology. To launch your ball you simply pull back the coil and release and this sets the game in motion. Read the rest of this entry »
