Last week we took a look at Rabah Shihab's excellent platformer Babylonian Twins, a game 16 years in the making, and very much liked what we saw in both the iPhone and iPad versions. Now is a great time to give the game a try, as the developer has just put both versions of Babylonian Twins on sale through the end of the weekend.
Not liking the way his home country, Iraq, was being portrayed in video games at the time, Shihab began development of the title with the goal of countering that negative image. While he did manage to release a well-loved demo of the game for the Amiga (the original platform), the harsh conditions caused by the economic sanctions of Iraq at the time left the game hanging in semi-complete obscurity for years. Luckily for iPhone gamers, the developer has brought Babylonian Twins -- both a port and a re-imagination of the Amiga original -- to the iPhone.
