Aiden Media and Reiner Knizia released a refreshed version of their puzzle logic game City of Secrets Skyline in anticipation of the launch of the 2.0 version of City of Secrets 2. In the first game you must create a skyline of a city based on the parameters set forth for the level. For example in one row only one building can be visible hence the name Skyline. Skyline requires logic and intelligence, traits we seem to lack since we are stuck on the very first level of the trainee mode. Consumers can download the game to their IPhone ($0.99) IPod Touch ($0.99) and their IPads both regular ($1.99) and HD versions ($1.99).
The aim of the game is to place buildings on the board in such a way that from a given point in a straight line, the specified number of buildings are visible. At first glance, nothing difficult. However, the 56 carefully designed levels, divided into four categories of difficulty, will provide even the most experienced players with hours of entertainment. For the winners, who beat all the levels of the game, there’s a special prize allowing players to unlock extra features in the upcoming ‘City of Secrets 2’ game.
* Clear and easy-to-understand rules.
* An addictive challenge for all logic puzzle lovers.
* 56 challenging levels, divided into 4 categories.
* A special prize, to be used in the upcoming City of Secrets 2 game.
Bear with us one second. A game company called Ivanovich Games sent us a confusing press release about two of their games, Letris 2 and Letris Power where they blended elements of Tetris and Scrabble like Ben & Jerry’s combination of cookies & cream ice cream with chocolate fudge brownies to make their Half Baked ice cream flavor. They have made a great game harder than Tetris and Scrabble. Consumers can play both Letris 2 and Letris Power for free on the ios platform. Conceptually the games’ concepts are simple and we suspect many game developers will say “Hey, why didn’t I think of that? Oh wait, I’ll just clone it.” If you haven’t noticed many game developers clone other game developers original game concepts because they lack creativity. (more…)

Partnered with J.U.L.I.A they must solve all the mysteries and puzzles. I would describe J.U.L.I.A as a giant point and click puzzle adventure game. The graphics and concept look really sharp so far.

Sorry. We couldn’t help overselves. What do you expect from the cracked “editorial” team at a site called HarryBalls.com. Yes. The Swedish game company known as Dear Future Astronaut released a physics puzzle adventure game for the iOS platform called Nose Invaders priced at $0.99. Nose Invaders takes place in someone’s nose. Who’s nose? No one knows. Sorry. When a mobile game takes place in noses some one has to write about it. Virus have invaded the noses of various creatures and you must guide the hero to wipe out said viruses from the noses. You aim the hero by tapping the screen towards the targeted viruses but you must also pay attention to the direction of the creature’s breath which will influence the direction your hero takes like a sail boat. It’s easy to learn and difficult to master.

Game Development Studio Hart Dev released GraviMaze, a physics puzzle game for the iOS platform. You tilt your device to slide the ancient hieroglyphic like flat cube around the maze to collect gold coins. So far we have breezed through the initial five levels but have spent 30 minutes trying to solve the sixth level. Gravimaze will initially cost $0.99 and comes with 100 levels. The are working on an IPad version slated to come out later this year.
In GraviMaze, the player rotates the level and uses gravity to navigate through tortuous mazes and escape with as many coins as possible. The game contains a hundred levels sprawling five mayan temples, each with unique visuals and attractive melodies. “GraviMaze can be picked up in seconds, but be prepared to wrack your brains if that’s what you are looking for,” said David Hart, founder of hart[dev].
David explains: “I am a huge fan of puzzle games. I had the idea for GraviMaze a while back but we didn’t start work on it until January 2010. This game is the result of one year’s blood, sweat and tears, and we are really proud with the end result. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we did developing it.”
GraviMaze will be available world-wide in February from Apple’s App Store for iPhone and iPod Touch.
