    iQuarterback 2 has seen success on the iPad, having gotten all the way up to #2 on the iPad App Store free chart. However, iPhone and iPod touch owners have been shut out of the target-hitting football gameplay until now. But no longer! iQuarterback 2 Pocket Edition is now available for iPhone and iPod touch. The reason for a separate app, instead of a universal update is in large part due to high scores. As FuzzyCube Software’s Jeff Ruediger has explained to me, there was some concern with the fairness of the high score lists if one universal app was released; one version may have a scoring advantage over the other. The iPad version makes it easier to hit targets accurately, although the iPhone version makes it easier to quickly hit a target on a different side of the field. Instead of utilizing separate leaderboards, a different version was released, although this means that experience and fame won’t carry over from the iPad version. The game is still free to play, with the ability to purchase additional Fame that go toward powerups; as well, the ads can be disabled for only $0.99. iQuarterback 2 Pocket Edition is available for free, and requires a third-generation or better device.

    Reiner Knizia’s Yoku-Gami Time Attack:
    Time for a challenging new puzzle game. Rules are simple, just select a group of three numbers. If the greatest number in that group equals the sum of all the other number in the group, the turn is deemed successful. Each move will see the numbers disappear and be replenished with new numbers. As the game moves along, the numbers climb higher, thus adding challenge to the game. The game comes with three different modes of play and even a hint of education disguised as fun. This is a game for anyone of any age!

    Football may be in jeopardy, what with more NFL action projected to be going on in courtrooms between lawyers in expensive suits rather than in stadiums with players in uniforms this fall. However, iPad owners longing for taste of the gridiron can get a little taste with iQuarterback 2 from Fuzzy Cube Software, an arcade-style target shooting take on football.

    This game puts players in control of a quarterback in two gameplay modes. The first, Shoot Out, has a series of targets pop up, which the player must try to hit as they go by. Different targets give different point values, and some offer powerups like giant footballs, and ones that split into 3 footballs, for maximum target hitting action. The other mode, Accuracy, is based on reaction time, where targets quickly pop up and must be hit before they go back down. Each successive target hit increases the overall multiplier, so frequent accurate hits are necessary to get high scores.

    The game is available as a free download, but features ads and in-app purchases. Players earn “Fame” from playing the game, which can be used toward new outfits and stadiums, which offer different powerups to the player. As well, Fame can be used to extend the game length by 3 seconds for 10 Fame, up to 10 times in one game. Fame can be bought via in-app purchases, although it is not necessarily required, although high scores will be lower without the extension of time, so smart usage is required if there’s no desire to spend money on the game. It’s something of a curious take on the freemium model – while the game gives advantages for acquiring additional Fame, it is not patently necessary by definition, especially as good players will earn large amounts of it as they play. iQuarterback 2 is available from the App Store now.
