Out Now: ‘The Bards Tale’, ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies’, ‘Infinity Blade 2’, and More

Well this has been a crazy day. Infinity Blade 2 madness all over the place, a surprise Call of Duty announcement, Where’s My Water went free with Facebook hijinx, and a ton of other stuff I never expected when I rolled out of bed this morning. I figured things would be slow, since Chair essentially claimed today as their day at the last keynote. But NO!

So, this is less of a “coming tonight" and more of an “out now." I have a feeling things are only going to get crazier as we get close to the iTunes freeze in late December.



The Bard’s Tale, $5.99Forum Thread – Embarrassingly enough, the first time I heard about this comedic RPG was when new hit that it was coming to iOS. I was then shamelessly ridiculed for not having played it when it was first released on other platforms. That seems appropriate.


BigBot Smash, 99¢Forum Thread – I’m not really sure what to say about this game, since the graphics seem pretty lo-fi but I love the premise of just playing as a giant upgradable robot blowing stuff up.


Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies, $6.99Forum Thread – Surprise! It’s a pseudo-sequel to Call of Duty: Zombies! Online multiplayer is the name of the game here, and we’ve got a great thread if you’re looking for someone to play with.


Catball Eats It All, FreeForum Thread – This incredibly descriptive title basically says it all. I’m sure you’ll hear more about this game on Jared’s Kitty Korner.


Egg Punch, FreeForum Thread – I’m liking the looks of this not-quite-mini-golf egg-rolling game. The premise is a bit of a stretch, but I’m such a sucker for cel shaded graphics.


Green Farm 2, FreeForum Thread – What’s better than a Gameloft clone of Farmville? How about a sequel?


Horror Vacui 2, $1.99Forum Thread – I’m totally unfamiliar with Horror Vacui, but it’s by the creator of The Last Rocket, which I absolutely loved… So I’m excited to try this!


Infinity Blade 2, $6.99Forum ThreadRead our review, and download this game. Now.


Last War, FreeForum Thread – I’m not sure what to think of this as it looks a lot like those old Mafia Wars games, but it’s from… Gamevil?


McGyro, 99¢Forum Thread – A, err, gyroscope controlled shooting gallery game published by Chillingo.


Mr.Oops!!, 99¢Forum Thread – We’re massive fans of Ponos, and I have a dedicated folder on my phone to all the “Mr." games. Tonight, I add another.


Sparky vs Glutters, 99¢Forum Thread – Clickgamer pulled out all the stops to compete with Infinity Blade 2 this week with this Zuma-style marble shooting game.


Zen Pinball, FreeForum Thread – An awesome pinball game with one free table and others available via IAP.
