It seems as if EA's rapid fire release schedule we saw in 2009 is continuing right through to 2010 with the three games that they just revealed new screenshots of today. We don't know that much about these games yet, but should very soon judging by how EA has handled iPhone game launches in the past.

Sim City Deluxe

Coming this summer, Sim City Deluxe looks to be a significant upgrade from the original iPhone Sim City released in late 2008. The interface appears to have been tweaked, and the game also is loaded with new natural disasters and a pinch-zoom function.


The Sims 3 World Adventures

Yet another Sims expansion, this time focusing on exotic destinations such as Egypt and the far east. World Adventures for the PC includes tons of hidden treasures and new things for your Sims to discover, and it seems like we can expect the same out of the iPhone port. Oh, and of course, what would a Sims expansion be without new clothes and furniture?


2010 FIFA World Cup

Set in South Africa, this game appears to be an evolution of FIFA 10 which we enjoyed in our review. If you're a soccer fan, this is likely the soccer game to look forward to on the iPhone.

We will be following up with all of these games as more details are revealed.

    SimCity? Needs iPad support. Do that and it will be awesome-sauce.

    Well I'm not impressed. I was an original purchaser of their SimCity iPhone game back in 2008. They never fixed the transport problem where the citizens wouldn't use any of the public transport you placed into the city. All of it costs $ to run and drains your revenue without earning income to offset the cost. It has other effects besides just draining money from you. Citizens eventually move out as they demand public transport but won't use any that you put in place. Despite providing repeated feedback to EA on this issue it's never been fixed. Lack of a fix to this issue, which is a key part of the game dynamic, is unacceptable. I will not be purchasing their new SimCity title and warn potential buyers to beware.

      same page here! I was going to download SimCity and play it again, but then had second thoughts simply because of the crashing and laggy zoom... Oh well, i'll probably cave in and do it.

      I just wish there was a reasonable sim game available that didn't feel all cramped.

      How cool would SimTower be!?

    • FatsoPilot

      This doesn't look like a new game but an update to the old one. Why would I buy a new Sim City from EA when the original does not work? How annoying is it that the public transportation doesn't work but no matter how many times feedback is submitted they don't fix it?

    • daniel

      i hated the problem as well but apparently its fixed. ive not done anything different but my city has good traffic, not astarter city too. do try a new game after the patch. i only started noticing playing off an autosave so maybe that solved it ive no idea though

    Ok, now how about sim ant and sim tower. Sim tower would sell well.

    • Jonny

      They need to put Theme Park from 1994 onto the iPhone. That is one of my all-time favorite games! It would sell as well as it did back in 94!

      • Rachel

        Uh, heck yeah. That would sell. I loved that game; cleaning up the puke piles! It couldn't be hard to take games like that and put in the dang app store. They could make tons of money on these classic games.

    • wegmans

      Nice! It would function so well on this platform!

      plust i would just like to hear that soothing sound of the elevators one more time..

      • Rachel

        Lol! That noise was soothing!!! And the noise of the people in the office. Great game.

    STILL nothing about an NHL game via EA Sports? Fail.

    What a major disappointment.

    Do EA actually write anything original these days, seems to be the same old regurgitated crap for each platform.

    Big MEH on the new SimCity. Still no freeways, diagonal roads, or terrain? C'mon, these things can be done. Hook us up.
