Mobile: 9 Colonies for iOS

9 colonies iphone strategy game

Welcome, brave soldior. As a member of the strategy-game-craving masses, you’ve likely seen a few epic iOS strategizers here and there. If you’re anything like me, an unabashed outer-space geek, you most definitely have a creamy spot for genre classics like Master of Orion. If all of that rings true, and you have an iOS device, hold on tight – we’re going in deep with 9 Colonies. Dive in

Mobile: ‘Crimson: Steam Pirates’ for iOS

Chances are you’ve heard of Bungie Studios. They created Halo for the original X-Box. Yeah. From a creepy one bedroom apartment housing two dudes, to a fully-loaded game studio stuffed full of free snacks. From freedom to indentured servitude and back to freedom again (but still with some indentured servitude). I like these guys. Enter Crimson: Steam Pirates for iOS. I eagerly downloaded Crimson: Steam Pirates in a food-induced Christmas Coma last week. And? This may be the best iOS game I’ve ever played. Read on!

Mid-Week Links

Just a couple of quick links here.

To follow the previous post about EVE Online, Gamasutra has an interview with CCP discussing EVE Online’s steep learning curve (described as “vertical”). This is definitely an issue with OSG’s, as a new player can easily be discouraged if he either doesn’t know what he’s doing or has to sit through a long tutorial before actually getting to play the game.

Might and Magic Heroes Kingdoms now has an iPad client, even though they’ve still yet to release in the States…

Cheers,
