Pocket God [99¢] is a game that hardly needs an introduction around here. With meager beginnings as a simple sandbox with an island full of pygmies you can toss around, Pocket God has since turned in to a seemingly unstoppable monstrosity that now includes mini-games and tie ins from all sorts of iPhone games such as Harbor Master [$1.99 / Free] and even Doodle Jump [99¢]. Other features have been added such as the ability to create little in-game movies with your islanders, turn them in to zombies, and more things than I can even list off the top of my head. What started as a game that was so basic it was hard to even describe as a "game" has turned in to an iPhone game with a surprising amount of things to do and discover.

This fall, Pocket God will be coming to the iPad. Pocket God for the iPad will be a completely new game, as creator Dave Castelnuovo told CNN, "I don't really believe in taking an existing title and cranking out an exact same clone of the game on every different console out there. If we have a really hardcore fan that has it on both iPad and iPhone, we want them to have a different experience."

This new Pocket God will have the same humor that Pocket God fans have come to expect, with the first installment being titled Journey to Uranus. The pygmies will quite literally take to the stars, and Bolt Creative sent us the following screenshots that show how this is all going to look on the iPad:

Since our forums served as one of the original infestation points for the Pocket God army, you can bet that as soon as we hear more details on either Pocket God for the iPad, or the upcoming Pocket God comic book, we'll post everything we find.

    Is it normal to want to drop 600 bucks for an iPad, JUST to play this game?

    • Bob

      Hurry up and get it! :D

    Am I the only person who finds Pocket God to be immensely boring? I got sick of it really quickly. All you can do is torture your Pygmies for a few seconds and then you've pretty much done everything. I've tried being nice to my Pygmies but it's even more boring, since all you can do is cook their fish and stuff. Even the minigames are boring.

      I think it's supposed to be a relaxation app but it doesn't really appeal to me either.

    You screwed up the first sentence, lol, it should be "Pocket God, a game that hardly NEEDS an introduction around here."

    I have to agree with Cameron. I must be missing something...I could not enjoy this game at all. I'm not an egghead or elitist in my gaming tastes. I like a variety of games including Scrabble, Galcon, Angry Birds, Meteor Blitz, Babo Crash, Plants vs. Zombies, and even Fruit Ninja. I just couldn't GET this game at all.

      This is nothing, kids these days are feverishly collecting rubber bands. RUBBER BANDS.

      You can sell any old garbage if you select your age group carefully.

    who buys this rubbish? I know it's only 99c, but still looks worthless.

    I will only consider this IF it is in fact a game. Pocket God isn't a game, it's an Entertainment App at best. I did like the concept of the mini-games in PG but still never crossed over. If PG HD ends up expanding on some of those mini-games while still keeping things random and replayable (but with tracked scores), I could finally take the plunge.

    The newest minigame, the runs, Is amazingly good. If you dont like thw other minigames, try it. Its a great canabalt-ish game.

    • Lord Gek

      Does the game track your best scores in each of the mini-games?

      • Ecko7123

        yes through open feint

    • Lloydxiaol

      THATS WHY THERES CALLED AN UPDATE. GOD SERIOUSLY PEOPLE STOP HATING. ITS CALLED CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM.

    Looks like pocket god on itouch/phone is done for it already takes month or 2 for very simple updates. Now can we expect to wait 4 or 5?

    Journey to Uranus? Wow, what a clever joke, I'm sure no one's ever noticed that "Uranus" is pronounced like "your anus". Friggin' hilarious.

    Wow what Hate! Im 31, the wifes 28, my kid is almost 3, 65 on the old man, a good age range. All of us find Pocket God entertaining. The only line they crossed with me was the comic book. Maybe ya missed something?

    Guys seriously stop hating. Look at the ratings. Pocket God is actually a really fun app that is unique and the devs come up with frequent updates. So if you think pocket god sucks, say it on the appstore. Maybe if you post your comment on the appstore, they'll make it "less" boring. And btw everyone started hating it on this thread because one person started to hate it. Dont deny it. Just my opinion..
