Well this looks like some great news for all of us who enjoy the heck out of iPad wargames. Desert Fox: The Battle of El Alamein is the latest iPad wargame title from the clever folks at Sheandoah Studio – makers of the excellent Battle of the Bulge and Drive on Moscow iPad strategic wargames.
Desert Fox is coming to the iPad very soon. In the meantime, take a look at the trailer above for a great look at what this title will bring.
A few days back I mentioned a great looking soon-to-be-released iPad game called Red Herring. It’s the latest game from the makers of the fantastic 7 Little Words game.
Well, today that great looking game hit the App Store. I just took a look at the Top Charts section and Red Herring is sitting at the Number 1 sport for free Word games. That’s great to see, and having spent 10 days and many hours with the game I can tell you it’s well-deserved success.
I’m more than a little addicted to the game already, and my 11 year old daughter is pretty much fighting me for the iPad to play it too. As of today she can get her own version – phew.
I’ll do a review soon, but in the meantime my advice is go get this game – it’s a super fun word game with logic puzzle and trivia elements thrown into the mix. Here’s an App Store link for Red Herring; it’s a free game with lots of free content and only very reasonably priced In-App purchases ($0.99 to $1.99) for additional puzzle packs and hints.
Botanicula is a just-released new iPad game with one heck of a fine pedigree. It’s described as a humor-filled adventure game and is the latest game from the makers of the superb and award-winning Machinarium game.
Here’s the initial story line for Botanicula and a few of its features:
Five friends, little tree creatures, set out on a journey to save the last seed from their home tree which is infested by evil parasites.
- Relaxed game perfect for hard core gamers, their partners, families and seniors.
- More than 150 detailed locations to explore.
- Hundreds of funny animations.
- Incredible amount of hidden bonuses.
- Award winning music by Dva.
The game is already getting rave reviews and I can’t wait to try it out. Actually, I have to wait to try it out – because my daughter absolutely loved Machinarium and I think she’d never speak to me again if I tried this one out without her.
Here’s an App Store link for Botanicula; it’s priced at $6.49.

Red Herring is a soon-to-be-released new iPad game from the makers of the excellent 7 Little Words game. Here is the developers’ short introduction to the game:
Red Herring – containing word game, logic puzzle and trivia challenge elements – is about organizing words into categories while keeping an eye out for sneaky “red herring” words that are only in the puzzle to confuse you.
They promise that the game is simple and addictive – two words that perfectly describe their 7 Little Words game. I did a review of 7 Little Words for iPad here last year, and it remains one of my all-time favorite iPad word games. The developers were kind enough to let me try out Red Herring prior to its pending release – and I can tell you it is a uniquely challenging and fun game. I’m already hooked.
Check out the trailer video above and look out for Red Herring hitting the App Store very soon.
