Nearly Daily iOS Games Update – 29 April 2011

No Comment 43 Views

Sure it’s been mostly a week since the last update but the industry has been on the quiet side. I think it’s all the E3 prep in the background that is starting to consume hours of everyone’s GDN iOS updatetime (including mine). This week we’ll head into space with Rocket Chimp where we’ll take a peek at Lola’s Magic Cube (rowr rowr!) talk to the Good Shepherd, eat some Piclings run away from the Vampire Rush and be Kickin Ms Chicken. It’s entirely possible we might run into the DreamSleuth in the Smuggle Truck, unless he’s in the Snuggle Truck (we’re not going in there with him!) during the Dash Race... who knows.
