No doubt there will be plenty of couples out celebrating this Valentine's Day. Lots of flowers, candy, romantic dinners and candlelight. No one really stops to think about the less glamorous side of the holiday; namely waiting in long lines to get into a restaurant for said romantic dinner, scrambling to find flowers and candy when at least half of the country is doing the same, and so on. Fortunately there's a way for iOS users to lessen the irritation and have an easier time enjoying the moments that really matter. In this case, I'm referring to Gameloft's Valentine's Day sale.
Of course rescuing a space princess in Earthworm Jim, wreaking havoc in Gangstar Rio: City of Saints or running amok in Rayman 2: The Great Escape won't substitute for making googly-eyes at each other from across the table. They will, however, make the wait for the table more bearable. And just in case finding "the right words" ends up being an issue, there's also Gameloft's Love Declaration Generator. Hey I'm just pointing out that it exists, I didn't make the thing.
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.
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.
