Best of iOS News: From Final Fantasy Tactics to Cut the Rope: Experiments

August 9, 2011 | By Danny Cowan

[Gamasutra rounds up the latest news in the world of App Store gaming, featuring standout releases like Final Fantasy Tactics, Touch Detective, Tap Tap Glee, and Cut the Rope: Experiments.]

- Final Fantasy Tactics Released for iOS
"Boasting an array of improvements from the PSP remake The War of the Lions (including new gameplay scenes and character classes), Final Fantasy Tactics is well-regarded for its depth and its nuanced character customization features."

- ZeptoLab Launches Puzzler Sequel Cut the Rope: Experiments
ZeptoLab's Cut the Rope sequel introduces a number of new gameplay mechanics across its 75 included levels. An iPad version is also available.

- Touch Detective Arrives on iOS with Exclusive Bonus Chapter
"The iOS edition of the once Nintendo DS-exclusive Touch Detective boasts exclusive content in 'Funghi Breaks Out,' a three-chapter escape game starring Mackenzie's mushroom pet."

- Tapulous Debuts Tap Tap Revenge Expansion Tap Tap Glee
Once an App Store staple back in the early days of iOS gaming, Tap Tap Revenge now gets a free song pack featuring songs from the hit television show Glee.

- Star Command: Mobile Mash-Up Of Game Dev Story, Star Trek
"War Balloon Games' iOS/Android project Star Command looks like an awesome take on the Star Trek universe, with gameplay modeled after Kairosoft's popular Game Dev Story -- essentially allowing you to manage a starship and its crew."

- Glu Mobile Selling Gun Bros. Weapon For Nearly $500
"At the most generous bulk conversion rate, that much virtual currency would cost a user $487.89 to purchase. Warbucks can also be obtained by watching advertising videos and downloading specific apps, but not easily in such extreme quantities."

- When a Title Says It All: Baby Monkey (Going Backwards on a Pig)
"Baby Monkey is an autoscrolling platformer that offers a dramatized reenactment of a popular Internet video, exploring the simian's later adventures in which he leaped gaping chasms and battled T-rex skeletons."
