098046_largerTime warp! Civilization creator Firaxis's turn-based strategy game, Haunted Hollow [$0.99], is available for download on the App Store. If you didn't grab it the first or bazillionth time it managed to see a release before yesterday, consider picking it up. It's a neat, bubbly competitive one-versus-one supernatural slugfest that tasks you with building up an army of monsters and scaring more townsfolk than your opponent. It's a pretty deep game that really forces you to consider the make-up of your monster army, as well as each move. We wrote about this pretty extensively last week.

If you're scratching your head still about the release -- yes, the game's "launch" the other week or so ago was the result of "testing error." This version of the game sees a few updates, mainly for polish stuff. Here's the launch trailer:

    Anybody having trouble running this on their iPhone 4? It's not crashing on me or anything but it's really slow and not very responsive. I'm also jailbroken with a ton of tweaks so it could be that I just don't have the RAM I'm supposed to have or something I guess.

    Do you know what specifically they updated? I played it after the initial launch and liked it, but wasn't blown away. I see it as a slightly weaker Outwitters with monsters instead of aliens/robots/plant things/seafood? Are the changes big enough to warrant a retry, or is it basically the same game?

    Really good day for iOS games. This is really fun. Good to pick up and play for a game or two.
