FORMation Alliance seems to be carving out quite an interesting niche for themselves with their "Games for Creatives" series. We previously looked at their KERN [App Store] game which we described as a typographer's dream (or nightmare).

KERN's gameplay involved properly aligning a letter into its proper place in a specific word or font. The game generated a lot of interest amongst a certain audience.

Two other games from the same developer might appeal to the same individuals.

EYE vs EYE

This one has been around for a while but focuses on color recognition in head-to-head competition. You are briefly shown a color and your job is to try to match that color as accurate as possible using red, green, and blue sliders.

EYE vs. EYE Is an intense color-matching duel that pits you against an opponent in a race of color accuracy. Challenge all comers and build your reputation for chromatic perfection.

The focus seems to be on 2-player simultaneous mode but solo practice mode is also available. Watch the embedded gameplay video (right) to see it in action.

App Store Link: EYE vs EYE, $0.99

PRESS CHECK

The latest release in the "Games for Creatives" is PRESS CHECK. This app replicates printing plate alignment tasks but with accuracy and speed rankings.

PRESS CHECK is a designer ode to the old-school art of print plate alignment re-imagined as a challenge of speed and accuracy on your iPhone/iPod Touch. Show off your non-digital skills with levels ranging from the beginner 2-color set-ups to the expert 5-color jobs.

This game also offers a global leaderboard so you can compare your scores against others who share your strange idea of fun. See the embedded video (right).

App Store Link: PRESS CHECK, $1.99

    Their apps are not not for me, but one of the good things in the Appstore is apps like this that appeal to a niche audience can be bought by the people who wants them and in turn support the dev so that they can make more.

    How does Eye vs. Eye compare to Andrew Borland's Colorblind? Is the difference just "head to head"? I don't care to play against other people, but Colorblind's interface leave something to be desired.
