As a native New Yorker - and by extension, a person who's quite familiar with subway systems - I found the concept of Mini Metro to be instantly appealing. Of course it's only available on Steam. Or at least, it was.
Dinosaur Polo Club has been hard at work bringing the stylish, minimal, and exceedingly clever Mini Metro to iOS. The basic idea is that you have to run a metro subway system by creating train lines that reach different stops, and ferrying riders around before they get too cranky after waiting an age and a half to get to their destination. Easier said than done, obviously.
The build I was able to get our hands on is still in the early stages but it already plays quite well on a touch screen. Dragging new lines around or editing existing ones is pretty fluid, and adding new trains and train cars is quite easy. Keeping everybody happy by balancing your subway lines, not so much.
Mini Metro will be coming to iOS (definitely on the iPad and potentially on the iPhone as well) sometime in Q4 later this year. Keep your eyes peeled for this one. Seriously, they pretty much had to wrestle the iPad away from me after the demo.
Rovio is celebrating 100 million downloads of the (quite apparently) popular Bad Piggies with a new update.
Bad Piggies is the Angry Birds spinoff that lets you play as the pigs as they build vehicles from scrap and try to navigate their way through levels without being blown up. It's getting a new Sandbox level called Little Pig Adventure and a new part called the gearbox, which allows you to make your inventions travel in reverse.
There are also some new achievements to collect, so download Bad Piggies for $0.99 and start building.
tinyBuild Games has announced that they are set to help bring the darkly comedic math puzzle game Divide By Sheep, which is being developed by Russian/Ukrainian studio Bread Team, to the App Store.
While there are lifeboats ready to carry the sheep away to safety, there's limited space on board - with hungry wolves and lasers adding to the player's problems - meaning care will be needed to ensure that they don't subtract from the woolly population too much. Among the hundred levels available there's also the Dark World, where multiplying the numbers on the Grim Reaper's death boat is the aim.
Divide By Sheep will be available on the App Store on a date soon to be calculated.
