Oh no! Loki and his evil buddies are constructing a super-weapon. Who can stop them? The LEGO® Marvel™ Super Heroes! After their success with consoles and PC last year, Marvel and Lego have teamed up to bring LEGO Marvel Super Heroes: Universe in Peril to mobile devices. Play as Spider-Man, Captain America, the Hulk, and 88 other characters. Seek out the Cosmic Bricks in the 45 missions that span the Marvel Universe.
The game has two control settings: “Console” and “Touch Screen,” which will make it easier for players to play the way they prefer. As the app requires no internet access players can feel free to play where and when they like. Just watch out when downloading the game. It takes up 2.2gb of space when downloaded with wifi.
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes: Universe in Peril is available on the App Store for $4.99.
The hugely popular The Simpsons Bongo Comics have made their way to the iPhone and iPad, with an official app just released.
Simpsons Comics comes from the masters of all things iOS comic book related, ComiXology.
Much like ComiXology's other apps, the initial download is free with new issues of The Simpsons based comics available, priced between $1.99 and $3.99. Recent and classic Bongo titles are included such as Simpsons Comics, Bart Simpson and Radioactive Man.
New Bongo comics will be available for purchase through the app within a month of their physical publication, with readers able to buy and download at least two digital releases a week, if they so wish.
Recommendations will also be available after finishing each comic book, so it's an ideal way to steer new readers in the right direction for plenty of fun with Homer and the family.
Simpsons Comics is available now and it's an Universal app.
The Assassin's Creed franchise has been phenemonally successful since the release of the first game in the series 5 years ago. It has spawned numerous new games, for PC, console and iOS, novelizations and even the rumor of a forthcoming movie. The tales of Ezio Auditore have now spawned a spin-off comic book in the form of new app Assassin’s Creed The Fall.
Assassin’s Creed The Fall follows the story of assassin Nikolai Orelov, providing a completely different look into the Assassin's Creed Universe. The stunning artwork and writing comes courtesy of DC Comics artists Karl Kerschl and Cameron Stewart so readers are guaranteed quality throughout. With easy to browse navigation designed specifically for the iPad, it should prove to be a great hit for comic book fans and fans of the game series.
Assassin’s Creed The Fall is out now and priced at $0.99 for the first past. The subsequent two parts are purchasable for $2.99.
Comic book fans are having an awesome year. The Avengers has come and gone, demonstrating just how fantastic Marvel comics are. Next up, we've got the darker worlds of The Amazing Spiderman and The Dark Knight Rises.
Courtesy of Gameloft, we've just been sent a pretty cool trailer for The Dark Knight Rises iOS game in preparation for its release this summer around the same time as the movie.
While we don't have many details about the game, the trailer is looking pretty neat with a vibe that will be very familiar to players of Arkham Asylum and Arkham City for consoles and PC. Combat seems set to play a major role here and there's a suggestion of free roaming gameplay, also. Hopefully, there'll be gadgets aplenty in the full release later this year.
We'll be sure to keep you up to date on all the latest developments but for now, enjoy the trailer!
No doom and gloom for the pygmies this time around. At least, not on a global scale. The Pocket God Comics app is getting an update (or rather just got one by the time this ends up being readable) including the 16th issue and a fairly major tweaking to the store’s interface.
In this latest episode, the girls need to fix their raft with a laser. Sure, that makes perfect sense. The catch is they can only get one by catching a laser shark. Oddly that makes a little more sense. And, of course, mayhem and hilarity shall ensue as the pygmies attempt to bag a very large, toothy, and heavily armed fish. The app itself (pictured above) should also be much more navigable. New issues, featured releases, Top Titles and more will be right up there on the main page for all to see and access. It’s looking pretty slick all things considered.
By the time people start reading this, the update should be live. Assuming there are some folks out there who don’t own the app yet, it’s also available for the incredibly low (and obnoxiously expected) price of $0.99.
After over 30 years of being a thing, Strawberry Shortcake (yes, that Strawberry Shortcake) is getting her own digital comic book app. From the folks involved in the super-popular Pocket God digital comic, no less. And it's all thanks to Ape Entertainment.
The app itself is free to download and includes a preview of the first issue. After that, the first three currently available issues (The Pineapple Predicament, The Sour Truth and The Berry Scary Storm) can be purchased for $2.99 each. Every issue contains a grand total of three stories, with a sizable 16-pager and two smaller ones. The app also includes a special feature to assist users with locating the closest comic retailer in their area, so that they can get their hands on some physical copies if they so desire.
The continuing fantasy adventures with lots of wholesome values (but sadly, no scratch-n-sniff) are up on the App Store right now. Anyone who harbors fond memories of the colorful bake-happy franchise should certainly take a look at the Strawberry Shortcake Comics Reader.
It's amazing how certain iOS games can just explode into our culture, isn't it? It happened with Angry Birds, which spawned more than a few spin-offs, merchandise and even a cartoon. The sadistic little app from Bolt Creative about the lovably doomed island of pygmies has also been bitten by the success bug. Since its release, Pocket God has seen a ton of content updates, a follow-up with its own metric ton of additions, and a digital comic. Each of these three things have been incredibly popular, but it's the success of the comic we're talking about now.
On the heels of a major milestone achievement (500 thousand plus downloads) and a new update (issue #11) comes even better news. Pocket God Comics, in collaboration with Free App A Day (FAAD), is on sale for absolutely free for the next two days. Well technically FAAD is responsible for Thursday's sale, while MonsterFreeApps is handling Friday. Anyway, from the 8th through the 9th, the now 11 issue strong digital comic app will be available for zilch. Nothing. Nada. Zip.
Great games, great reads, great regular prices and an even greater sale. Honestly, aside from a general discomfort derived from the violent demises of cartoon islanders, I can't think of a legitimate reason for anyone to miss this sale. It's looking to be one fantastic weekend.
