All of the previously mentioned bundles, and the games contained within, can be found on Pangea Software’s iTunes page.

Cro-Mag Rally

 

The App Store launched July 10, 2008 and brought with it a whole new way of distributing and purchasing software. The first several months were a wild west frontier of pricing, business models (or the lack thereof), and genre, making the iPhone the place to be.

As the years have gone by, things have gotten more crowded, more predictable, and perhaps more “same-old” to some. Let’s take a look back at those early, heady days with ten of the best iOS apps from the launch of the App Store.

Cro-Mag Rally

Cro-Mag Rally – Kart racing with cavemen? Yes, please! This launch title from veteran Mac developer Pangea showed us all how much fun the iPhone could be, paving the way for a host of ports and new gaming experiences on the go.

AIM – Before the recent spate of apps that bring multi-client, desktop-style instant messaging to the iPhone and iPad, there was only AOL Instant Messenger, or AIM. This launch title clued us in to the future of always being in touch, even if we didn’t know it at the time.

Fieldrunners – Oh, tower defense games, why do you torment us so? Fieldrunners took the concept already on the web in Flash games and brought it to the devices we had in our pockets every day, iterating its tower defense gameplay to a fine polish. We were hard-pressed to stop playing, to be honest, and still are.

yelp

Yelp – Like Urbanspoon, Yelp brought location-based awareness together with user-based opinions on local restaurants and coffee shops at a level we’d never seen before. Yelp has become an indispensable tool when traveling, and even while staying in our hometown, letting us find interesting places to eat and drink at a price we can afford.

Super Monkey Ball – Wait, we were just playing this on our GameCube! How cool is it that we can tilt our iPhones and roll that adorable monkey around the maddeningly difficult tracks? Ten bucks! That’s a sweet deal! Oh, what a difference half a decade makes.

Google Earth – This one came out in October of 2008, quickly amazing us all with its innovative zooming interface as well as its comprehensiveness. Finally, we thought, an interesting app from Google.

rolando

Rolando – Wow! This game showed us that we didn’t have to own a PSP to get a quality arcade puzzle platform game like Loco Roco. It also allowed the early promise of ngmoco;) to shine forth like a beacon in the wilderness.

MLB At Bat – Updated on a yearly basis since 2008, MLB At Bat came onto the scene like a home run, proving that this little App Store thing was for more than just fart apps and casual games. Serious sports fans rejoiced in 2008 when this baby was released.

Galcon – This real-time space-themed strategy game was ready on day one of the App Store, bringing a depth of gameplay not seen yet. While games like Mushroom Wars and the like have since iterated on the concept, Galcon remains a perennial favorite.

evernote

Evernote – This essential app has been around since day one, and still continues to improve. Evernote showed us how important it was to have access to our notes, files, and pictures across all the devices we used, whether they were on a desktop or in our pocket.

New App: Online Racing Brings Multiplayer To The Venerable Franchise

Posted by on September 7th, 2012
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Pangea Software is the grandaddy of Mac gaming, with no slouch of a record when it comes to iOS, either. The company has brought its pre-historic cart racing game into the current century with this new online multiplayer version, called Cro-Mag Rally: Online Racing.

“This new online-only version of Cro-Mag Rally moves our new mission forward another notch”, says Brian Greenstone, President of Pangea Software, “All of our future games are going to be multiplayer and free, so we’re creating new free versions of our existing multiplayer games including Nanosaur 2, and now Cro-Mag Rally. We’ve had such a huge success with Air Wings, that it’s clear this needs to be the future direction of Pangea Software.”

Another week means another game developer jumping on board the AirPlay support bandwagon. Previously, Firemint and The Binary Mill announced AirPlay functionality, now it’s the turn of Pangea Software’s line up.

Six of their titles have been updated to provide native support for iOS 5’s AirPlay streaming: Bugdom 2, Cro-Mag Rally, Nanosuar 2, Otto Matic, Quarters, and Enigmo 2. Each title can be played at 1080p with the Apple HDMI adapter or 720p via AirPlay. It’ll work on any iPad 2 or iPhone 4S running iOS5.

As well as that, Cro-Mag Rally and Nanosaur 2 have had a new ‘Spectator-Cam’ mode added to make the most of AirPlay support. This means an unique view of the game is sent to an HDTV, making it much more entertaining and sociable for others to watch.

All of the titles have also received a graphical overhaul with new higher resolution artwork implemented to ensure they all look great on HDTVs.

All of Pangea’s updated apps are available now.

Yes, you heard that right – Pangea is making all of their iPhone, iPod touch and iPad games free from 8 AM to 8 PM CST today and today only, in honor of the third anniversary of Apple’s App Store. Once 8 PM hits, they will all go to a $.99 price, a sale that does not yet have an end date. These games include Enigmo, Enigmo 2, Otto Matic, Bugdom 2 and Cro Mag Rally, among many others.

“iOS and the App Store are the most important things to come along in the video game industry in a generation,” said Brian Greenstone, President of Pangea Software, “We’ve been very fortunate to have been a part of this, so to say ‘Thank You’ to all of our awesome customers we’re hosting the biggest giveaway the App Store has ever seen.”

Pangea Software has been in the game software business since 1987, creating games for the Apple IIgs and the Macintosh, though they plan to focus solely on iOS games for the foreseeable future. They released their first game, Xenocide, for the Apple IIgs in 1989.

Pangea Takes The Lead In Online Gaming

I’ll admit, even when Game Center was just a big high-score collector, like OpenFeint and Plus+ before it, I was happy. I loved that it had its own app, and that it was easy to find directly compare your stats with friends, rather than having to dig through huge lists to find them. The whole thing was great, and then I found Cro-Mag Rally and the rest of the Game Center enhanced apps from Pangea.

Cro-Mag Rally

Admittedly, I’d never really gotten into Cro-Mag Rally when it was first out. It was always a good game, but with so many other racing games out there, it just got swallowed up. With the 4.1 update though, the game has found a whole new life for me (until the “so many other games” swallows it up again). Instead of being stuck in the world of single player racing, the new version of Cro-Mag lets you race against others, complete with in-game chat, via Game Center. Games are all matched up by either inviting up to three other friends or by auto matching you with others in case, as Steve Jobs put it, you have no friends.

There are no win/loss rankings in Game Center yet, just a total multiplayer score, but hopefully an expanded rankings system will come in the future.

Nanosaur 2

Nanosaur 2, previously only thought of as a single player game, has now added on six levels and three multiplayer modes, including Capture the Eggs, Battle, and Race. “In Capture the Eggs mode players are on teams, and they have to retrieve all of their team’s dinosaur eggs before the other team. Battle mode, on the other hand, is pure excitement as players collect weapons and blast each other out of the sky. The race mode also involves a lot of heat seeking missiles, blasters, and cluster grenades, but your primary goal is to race around a track.”

Like the rest of the Pangea online titles, Nanosaur two has in-game voice support so you can do all your trash talking in the game rather than in text messages after the fact. I’m definitely more of an instant gratification skills basher, so this is good for me.

Enigmo

The same Enigmo that won the won an Apple Design Award for best game and has sold well over a million copies now has a multiplayer experience. It’s definitely not my first choice of games that should add multiplayer to, but alas, you can now challenge others to see who can solve the puzzles the fastest.

“I have not been this excited about an app release (Game Center) since the App Store first opened,” says Brian Greenstone, President of Pangea Software, “There are several million existing owners of these games, and I can’t wait to start playing against them! iOS 4.1 has changed the gaming landscape on the iPhone, and I predict that most if not all of our upcoming games will be multiplayer capable.”

Hopefully other developers follow suit because I definitely think that Game Center is the key to the future of iPhone gaming.
