The multi-award winning game Edge [$.99] by Mobigame returns to the App Store again, in the U.S. and United Kingdom. If you haven't heard by now, there has been an ongoing legal battle over a trademark dispute on the name "Edge". Resulting in the game being pulled off the App Store multiple times and being resubmitted with different names like EDGE, EDGY, and Edge by Mobigame. Well it looks like the battle is over, as the game has reappeared and Mobigame says:

Thanks to us the word "edge" is now free to exist on the App Store like on any other marketplace, and games like Mirror's Edge, Shadow Edge, Killer Edge Racing or Edge by Mobigame can live on our iDevices.

Edge is a game where you are in control of a colorful cube that you must guide through multiple 3D isometric mazes, packed with puzzles to solve and challenges to overcome. With the choice of touch or accelerometer controls, as you can see in the video, the game requires quick thinking and skill to make your way through all the mazes.

Overall, Edge is a great game that we thoroughly enjoyed playing and recommend that you pick it up. Especially since, the game is on sale this weekend to celebrate its return to the App Store once again. Normally $4.99, the game is currently only $.99, so now is a better time than ever to pick up this excellent game. And hopefully Edge is here to stay for good.

    FINALLY.

    • mike

      uh, yeah, when it first came out like 2 years ago i got it...

      why are we still talking about this, instead of an Edge 2 preview?

      • http://www.thedara.com Chris

        Because it was kicked from the app store 3 times and a lot of people missed it.
        this time I actually had iTunes credit.

    Fun game.

    Note the controls: you swipe in a direction and then keep holding with your finger in the same place. (I thought it was meant to use continuous swiping, and it you try to do that, the steering is weird.)

    • http://www.thedara.com Chris

      There are 3 control styles in the options/settings menu.

    It would be nice to know what they did to get it back into the store. It sounds like this is a fix for good, which is great.

    YES!!! I personally got the game back when it was still on the app store, but I am really happy that it's back up so that other people can experience its amazing-ness.

    Thank God for that *redownloads quickly*!!

    At least this ridiculous shenanigan has given a fantastic game some extra publicity! I hope that makes up for the time it was forced out of the app store. Can't wait for a sequel...

  • macduke

    Holy crap I've been trying to buy this game for like a year now! Every time it would reappear it seems I would miss it. When it first came out I waited a while to buy it as I had bought a whole bunch of games around that time, so I figured I'd wait for it to go on sale. Then the whole debacle started with Tim Langdell, who, BTW, is a huge jackass. Screw you Langdell! Game over, you lose! Time to go find something else in life that you can FAIL at. You can't innovate because you have no talent, you hack! You could never make a game as great as this. Go cry.

    Heh. "Thanks to us." Yeah, I suppose EA filing suit had no effect on the matter.

    In any case, glad to hear this silly matter is over. And for 99¢, this is a no-brainer.

    Wohoo! It's a brilliant abstract platformer - and I lost the retro (SID/6581-inspired?) music. I've had it since it first came out. Now I can finally get my friends onto this awesome game too.

    Hi TA

    thanks for your support! the "thanks to US" in the quote means us all. Journalists, fans, The Chaos Engine, IndieVision, EA, Apple, our sollicitor at Sheridans, and finally Chaos Edge which contains a lot of proofs that EA used in its filing: http://chaosedge.wordpress.com/

    Fantastic game, though I pretty much stink at it!

    Got it about a year ago when I got an iPod touch.
    I'd LOVE to see an iPad update... Higher resolution and all!!!

    Thanks Mobigame,

    You indeed helped bring an end to the nonsense of one man leeching from others' work simply because he used the word edge many years ago

    superb game

    How come NOBODY is reporting on HOW mobigames secured their rights to sell this game again?

    I want to know what was the agreement reached. If it involved Mobigames dishing out unfair licensing fees to the copyright troll, than the game's return to the app store is actually bad news for game developers.

    Not a single gaming site even mentions how the agreement was reached. If you guys want to be taken serious as journalists, do some basic reporting and actually give us news.

    "And hopefully Edge is here to stay for good" - well if we knew what the agreement reached was, maybe we'd have a better idea of it is going to stay.
