With less than three weeks to go to the release of the iPad, ngmoco CEO Neil Young revealed to Computerworld at GDC that they have six games on their way to the device. While Young was rather vague at the time, we've since talked to both Freeverse and ngmoco and have the complete list of games that should be available around the launch of the iPad.
Freeverse's highly anticipated space conquest game Warp Gate was specifically held back for the iPad launch. We first revealed Warp Gate at our iPhone Launch Party at WWDC last year, and since then have done an additional sneak peek of the game. Also, we've got a huge thread on our forums where Freeverse Senior Producer Bruce Morrison has been participating in the discussion about the game.
Freeverse classics Flick Fishing and NBA Hotshot will also be making their way to the iPad in addition to a fourth new game, CastleCraft, an MMO strategy game where players build and manage one or more cities, then stockpile resources and military units to wage war on hundreds of other players online. We will have more details on the game soon, but here are a few screenshots of the iPhone version for the time being:
Ngmoco themselves will be contributing iPad versions of both GodFinger and We Rule, two freemium titles that recently saw limited releases in Canada. It also seems likely that both games will be released for the iPhone worldwide at the same time.
We should have many more details on all of these iPad games as April 3rd approaches. In the meantime, I've been assured that Warp Gate looks absolutely amazing, and out of all the games I've heard about so far for the iPad, it's by far the one I'm most excited to fire up.
