iPod

I’ve had an iPod Touch pretty much since they came out, which means that I’ve been able to be right up in there with most of the boardgame conversions to the iOS platform. I don’t have an iPad as of right now, so I can’t get all of them or anything, but I’ve certainly played a goodly number. And as Days of Wonder reported a few months ago, iOS versions of board games can actually help introduce, teach, and improve sales of actual cardboard n’ plastic versions of the game (up to 70%, in fact).
But it’s not always that pretty. And in fact, my experience with a few iOS games has been quite the opposite; where playing the electronic version of the game downright ruined the real thing for me…

It’s been quite a while since I last ran through my favorite podcasts here on my blog, so I thought I’d take a little time to list some of my current favorites, some new ones I’m hot on, and some that have gone a little cold for me…

As you may know, I play a lot of games on my iPod touch. So I’m happy to call some attention once again to RoboArena, a “Top Down Turn Based Casual Strategy Multiplayer Action Game (TDTBCSMAG for short)”, which I can’t wait to see make it out of development!

Time is running out, but there’s still a chance to pull off the Kickstarter Campaign for RoboArena, an upcoming iOS app that is sort of a cross between the boardgame RoboRally and the 90’s video game classics RoboSport and X-Com…

It’s been a while since my last iPod app review, and I’ve acquired and played quite a few more since then. So, here we go with my impressions of 15 new iPhone/iPod/iPad apps…
