Two well known iPhone developers came out with new games yesterday.
Phil Hassey’s Cosmic Nitro
Phil Hassey released his third iPhone game to the App Store yesterday: Cosmic Nitro [App Store]. Hassey is best known for his fast-paced strategy game Galcon [App Store] which won the IGF award for best mobile game design.
Hassey shared his thoughts about the game design:
I really wanted a cool feeling retro game that didn’t require me to think hard .. Galcon is sort of a thinking arcade-strategy game, and I wanted to try something that was more just mindless eye candy. The big thing I was going for is – the instant reward of touching the screen and having stuff explode and have it feel good I find it fun to just blast stuff .. makes me feel happy.
The developer’s gameplay video is provided:
Nimblebit’s Sky Burger
Their latest release is a refinement on the Scoops formula which involves the use of an accelerometer to capture falling items (in this case, burger ingredients) but with specific goals. The game has already generated quite a following in our forums.
