So another series of Olympic games is looming. Honestly it’s like they have these once every few years or something. Well in preparation and celebration of the events taking place this summer, NEOWIZ is introducing the London 2012 – Official Mobile Game. In other words it’s summer Olypmics on your phone.
Players can take part in nine different (popular) events: the100M, 110M Hurdles, 100m Freestyle, Double Trap, Triple Jump, Pole Vault, 100m Butterfly, Kayak (K1), and Archery. A player’s athlete can be trained and customized with well over 200 different items, to boot. It may even include boots, actually. London 2012 also offers three different game modes (Training, Challenge, and Olympic) just in case a simple campaign through a series of Olympic games isn’t enough. Although realistically I doubt a single athlete would take part in so many different events in the same year.
London 2012 – Official Mobile Game is available on the App Store right now in two varieties: Premium ($2.99), and Free. The difference between the two being Premium including an “additional 3,000 stars and 5 max. stamina points (Worth $5.50).” So there’s something for everyone. Unless they own an iPod Touch, original iPad, or iPhone 3GS or older, that is. It’s only compatible with newer devices, sadly.
Call me crazy, but something about the sport of cycling doesn't seem to me to lend itself well to iOS gaming. But what if you were not having to press the screen for every pedal of the bike? Taking a more "Sport simulation" route, today's new release Tour de France 2011 is a team management approach to the cycling juggernaut.
The game will allow you to pick from some of the most elite athletes in the world to hand pick your "dream team" of pedaling supremacy. Once your unit is assembled, you can then help define the tactical decisions that with drive your squad to victory.
Still hasn't piqued your interest? There is even a social aspect that will allow you to challenge your friends via Facebook to a showdown in head to head bipedular insanity. Available for only $2.99, if you are a fan of the sport of biking or this legendary competition, it should be well worth a glance.
