LEGO games are quite popular, generally quite good, and certainly here to stay. And several of them are currently on sale for $0.99 on the App Store.
At the moment the titles affected by this seemingly random price drop are LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4, LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7, LEGO Batman: DC Superheroes, and LEGO The Lord of the Rings. So if you're in the mood for some wizard schooling, villain chasing, or cursed ring destroying you're in luck!
You can nab each of the four games mentioned right now for $0.99 apiece.
Man of Steel gets its first update, featuring new story content and a new suit for Superman that you can buy via an in-app purchase. The added chapter to the story has you facing the World Engine, which has been released by General Zod. It also introduces a new combat mechanic to the gameplay.
Get to it folks, especially since the app is available at a lower summer price of 99 cents!
As E3 gets underway, expect lots of new games and major updates to existing ones. One of the first in the latter category is to the hugely popular create-any-object puzzle and sandbox game Scribblenauts Remix.
Earlier today, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment launched version 2.0 which comse with what they describe as a "free playable “God” Avatar". There is now also a World Pass extension pack which hosts worlds six, seven and eight, making up a total of 30 new puzzles. The extension pack is available as an in-app purchase for $.99, but if you already bought the furst extension pack these new worlds are included as a free upgrade.
Another new IAP, “Mystical Creatures” gives players nine unique avatars to choose from including Baba Yaga, Kappa and Doppelgänger. You can take on these mysterious identities instead of always playing as Maxwell. You can now also gift the app directly from inside the game, instead of going through the App Store.
I’m unclear on what, exactly, the new avatars do, besides add a cosmetic change, but the World Pass will add a lot of replay value. If you’ve updated and upgraded already, let us know what you think of the new features in the comments.
I can’t count the number of times I have had the iCade – the retrofied arcade control cabinet with a real eight-point joystick and eight real buttons – in a physical or virtual shopping cart and put it back because the compatible games list just didn’t warrant the hundred dollar investment. Well, I’m still holding out for Ms. Pac Man, but thanks to Warner Bros Interactive, the next time I’m squandering money and tempted by the flashback accessory, I just may keep it. Why? Because Midway Arcade, with it’s catalog of killer classic games like Joust, Spy Hunter, Defender and a true favortie of mine, RootBeer Tapper, is now iCade compatible too.
The app was already treat for anyone who spent hours and rolls of quarters in arcades as a kid. Players wander through a virtual showroom with classic cabinet games - all played in portrait mode which is ideal for the original iCade with the groovy casing. There are also four table top games including air hockey and pool and even a juke box to complete the late 70’s -early 80’s vibe. In fact, Midway is my favorite of all the classic collections on iOS because of its immersive design. But like Atari’s Greatest Hits, the first iCade compatible classics collection, these iconic titles just beg for physical controls. Now they have them.
On top of the generous content that comes with the $.99 download, Midway Arcade offers two $.99 in-app purchases to unlock fantasy and action three-game packs. Midway Arcade’s realistic setting is ideally suited to the iCade’s original design, but of course the app also works with the newer iCade models like the iCade Core as well.
