Sev Zero is the first game made by Amazon Game Studios to have made its way to the Fire TV, and now there’s a companion app for iPad to go alongside it.
With the iPad app, players can bring friends and family into the battle against the Ne’athu, with the player on the iPad acting as air support, sending down air strikes to take out the enemy. Meanwhile, the other player can continue the tower defense and first-person shooter side of the combat.

The iPad version of the app supports many of the features users can already find on the iPhone, including the ability to create and complete iOS reminders, send ‘running late’ texts and e-mails, and check flight status, including the terminal and gate information.
Tempo Smart Calendar is available on the App Store now as a universal app and is free to download.

Pocket Gamer reports that Double Zero One Zero has announced their Papers, Please-esque “censorship simulator,” The Westport Independent, will be making its way to iOS. In the game you play the role of the editor of an independent newspaper based in Westport – a city of liars, politicians, and rioters. The citizens rely on your newspaper to get the truth, and it’s up to you to decide what to print. In the meantime, you also have a guidebook from the government to follow if you want to stay on their good side.
Here, Game designer Pontus Lundén explains the newest addition of the game, with your decisions now also possibly affecting the lives of your journalists as well as yourself:
Throughout the game you will censor articles, pick out headlines, and layout your paper. Your actions will affect the peoples’ opinion of both the rebels and the Loyalist government. At the same time, it’ll also affect the lives of your employees. They have both their lives and the lives of their families to protect, so don’t blame them if they don’t want to follow you onto the Loyalist’s or the rebel’s hit list.
The Westport Independent will be coming to iOS, but no release date has been hinted at yet.
