Best of iOS News: From Crimson: Steam Pirates to Jetpack Joyride

September 6, 2011 | By Danny Cowan

[Gamasutra rounds up the latest news in the world of App Store gaming, featuring standout releases like Jetpack Joyride, Madden NFL 12, Crimson: Steam Pirates, and an iPad version of Doodle Jump.]

- Take A Jetpack Joyride Today With Barry Steakfries
"It plays sort of like those cave games in which you're moving up and down an auto-sidescrolling environment to avoid obstacles, except here you're equipped with a jetpack that fires bullets at evil scientists below you."

- Madden NFL 12 Debuts for iOS Platforms
The iOS version of EA's latest football franchise update promises "smoother, harder hitting collision effects, sharper gameplay, and cleaner graphics than ever before."

- Sega's Brick People Coming To iOS, Minus Physical Blocks
"Instead of requiring the arcade version's set of plastic accessories, Brick People on iOS just has you dragging digital blocks from a stack, dropping them into place via the multi-touch screen."

- Bungie Aerospace Corporation Launches Free Action-RTS Crimson: Steam Pirates for iPad
"Crimson: Steam Pirates is conceived by the mind of Harebrained Schemes' Jordan Weisman, creator of the MechWarrior, Crimson Skies, and Shadowrun universes."

- Banzai Rabbit Creator Revolutionary Concepts Tapped for iOS Frogger Remake
"While Frogger is no stranger to remakes, Konami's selection of Revolutionary Concepts as developer is a canny decision. Revolutionary Concepts previously created Banzai Rabbit, a revamped iOS take on the Frogger formula."

- App Store Favorite Doodle Jump Gets iPad Upgrade
Lima Sky's top-selling Doodle Jump now has an iPad version boasting redrawn graphics and a wider gameplay area.

- Radballs Brings Together OK Go And Super Puzzle Fighter And More
"The block matching game shares much with similar titles like Tetris Attack, Puyo Puyo, Lumines, and even Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo. It also taps into your iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch's audio library."
