The game has a TON of content so it is taking some time to get through before we can staart writing up the final review. One interesting little tidbit I’ll share is that this time Gamevil has implemented online leaderboards for thier game.  Hybrid is available for $5.99

Upcoming geoDefense Update to include Openfeint and 4 new levels!


More good news on the geoDefense front following the recent release of Swarm. The developer just submitted update 1.3 for the original geoDefense which will include OpenFeint, and 4 new levels. My guess is the new levels will be quite challenging for all you geodefense veterans out there. Keep a look out for this one soon!

After a long wait for fans, geoDefense Swarm Dev says it’s approved!

The Developer for the long awaited geoDefense Swarm, reported this afternoon that the app has been approved and should appear on the app store soon. Apparently it takes some time for the app to actually appear on the servers after approval.
Bottom line, soon the wait will be over for the huge group of geoDefense fans that have eagerly anticipated the next title in the geoDefense family.

The Current Gamer Breaking News: Mediatonics new iPhone game get the info here first!

MediaTonic the developers of the iphone cult classic MustEatBirds has been hinting at a new iPhone game for some time now. They plan to announce the game next week. We took a close look at thier clues, and did some digging on thier website and think we know exactly what they will be announcing….


This screenshot was released as one of the clues to Mediatonics next game. Here is another clue they released:

This one has the MediaTonic Logo on top of what looks like a yellow ball of some sort, next to smaller white ball. hmmm…. Here is a pic from a wiki article about lawn bowling:

Look familiar?

After doing some digging on the MediaTonic websites we came across this little pic:

The pic is named Extreme Lawn Bowls…. It also just so happens that domain was bought on August 15th by none other than MediaTonic!

What is lawn bowling? Wiki: “Bowls is a sport in which the goal is to roll slightly asymmetric balls, called bowls, closest to a smaller—normally white—bowl called the “jack” or “kitty”. Bowls, either flat- or crown-green, is usually played outdoors, on grass and synthetic surfaces. Flat-green bowls can also be played indoors on synthetic surfaces. Both variants are collectively known as “lawn bowls”.”

So our prediction is that next week Mediatonic will be announcing Extreme Lawn Bowling for the iPhone. We will have additional details as they are available.

GTA Chinatown Wars coming to iPhone

PC and console giants Rockstar games announced that they plan to bring GTA Chinatown Wars to the iPhone.
Chinatown Wars was created from the ground up for the Nintendo DS and made clever use of the DS touch screen. The title also featured an art style and camera angle that felt like a throwback of the early GTA games.
Gameloft’s 3D open world GTA clone, Gangstar has not been out long and we have seen a handfull of other clones such as Car Jack Streets. It appears they will have some very tough competition this Fall.

On The Radar: Plushed

One game to look out for in the near future is developer Blacksmith Games first planned iPhone release, Plushed. Plushed appears to be a 2D platformer with a unique hand drawn art style. Blacksmith Games has just released the first video for the game:

Based on the video, the unique hand drawn art style is consistent with screenshots that have been released earlier. The animations appear to be very smooth, and look great. For those not familiar, Plushed is a new take on the classic “save the princess” formula. Instead of a prince, the hero of the story is the Princess’ plush bunny.

The game is being built from the ground up for the iPhone, and the developer promises several unique gameplay elements that will take advantage of the iPhones touch screen and built in accelerometer. The developers are aiming for a September/October 09′ release currently, and we at The Current Gamer are certainly looking forward to seeing the finished product.
