    Halfbot’s The Blocks Cometh has been given one big final update making it universal, adding iCade support, and 5 new characters from all across the world of iOS gaming.

    Yes, iPad support has finally come to this game. The game also supports the Retina Display, so while there may not be added definition to those pixels, they will look crisp without the scaling interpolation that iOS usually adds to non-Retina games. The iCade support even makes the game feel exactly like the old-school arcade game it was destined to be. Don’t worry, iCade Mobile users, as there’s support for that too.

    Velocispider‘s eponymous araknasaur is a playable character, climbing blocks with the ability to shoot ones directly above it, though blocks to the side can’t be shot! 1-bit Ninja‘s ninja makes an appearance, though it can thankfully move both left and right. Even the editors of Touch Arcade make appearances in the game, because when the sky is falling, there’s no one you want on your side more than a bunch of app bloggers!

    kode80, LLC, developer of 1-bit Ninja, has unveiled their latest app, a programming environment for programming graphics in OpenGL ES 2.0, called GLSL Studio. OpenGL graphics can be created in this app, supporting vertex and graphic shaders. GLSL Studio provides plenty of handy tools for OpenGL developers – syntax highlighting in a native code editor, shader input management, vertex data generation, with uniform binding and runtime options also available. Images can be imported from the Camera Roll for use with textures in the app, with up to 8 textures able to be managed at once. As well, there’s live camera streaming for camera-enabled devices, with the ability to create camera filters with OpenGL code, and to add these images as part of the managed textures. The app is universal and supports 3rd-generation devices and later, so OpenGL coders can code from anywhere, at any time. Projects can be exported from the app, either attached to an email or exported through iTunes File Sharing, and are usable in any program that supports OpenGL ES 2.0, including iOS apps.
