+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Originally released by Gameloft in 2010, Blokus disappeared from the App Store last year. Turns out Gameloft no longer holds the license for the game by Mattel, but a company by the name of Magmic now does. This new version supports single player and online multiplayer. Available now in a $1.99 paid Universal version and a free version supported by ads.
iPads are taking over the world and it looks like our skies too. Gameloft has collaborated with Australian airline Jetstar in order to offer a lineup of 12 pre-loaded games for iPads as part of the in-flight entertainment program for passengers.
From December, five titles will be available encompassing a range of different interests. These titles include Real Football, Shrek Kart, Avatar, UNO and N.O.V.A: Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance.
Coming to the airline in the first quarter of 2012 will be the remaining seven titles: GT Racing: Motor Academy, Brain Challenge, Blokus, Iron Man 2, Let’s Golf! 2, The Settlers and Asphalt 5. It’s a varied bunch both in terms of genre and quality but it should be plenty to keep passengers entertained during their flight.
Passengers will be able to rent iPads with such games on them when flying longer than 2 hours for A$10 to A$15 per flight. Not bad at all for a heap of fun.
