Word Ace is here and it’s free!

Self Aware Games the developers that brought us Taxiball have just released Word Ace. We have been eagerly awaiting this release here at The Current Gamer, and look forward to spending many hours with this game.

Click here to check out our interview with developer Self Aware Games discussing Word Ace:

Word Ace is a hybrid mix somewhere between Scabble and Texas Holdem’ poker. Here is the developers description:

“Word Ace combines the strategy and competition of Texas Hold ?Em with the intellectual challenge of classic word games into a fast-paced multiplayer online game you can carry in your pocket.

With built-in friends lists, text chat, and a unique picture-based “emote” system, Word Ace makes it easy and rewarding to play with your friends. Can you rack up the highest-scoring word, or are you going to have to bluff your way to victory?”

We will have a review for you down the road, but for now we will be online playing some Word Ace!

Geodefense Swarm Update

UPDATE ALERT!!!UPDATE ALERT!!! 9/14/09 :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.


We are sad to report the developer of the much anticipated geodefense swarm said this morning that the app was rejected. The good news is the app has already been re-submitted. Hopfully we will have better news for you soon.
