[Every week, Gamasutra sums up sister iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad site FingerGaming's top news and reviews for Apple's nascent portable game platforms, as written by editor in chief Danny Cowan and authors Tucker Dean, Jason Johnson, and Ryan Hibbeler.] This week, FingerGaming covers Fight Night Champion, Hot Springs Story, and Minotron 2112, among other notable titles. Also within are the lists for top-grossing, most-downloaded free and paid Apps from Apple's store, along with a review for EA's Dead Space. Here are the top stories from the last week: - Top-Grossing Game Apps: Tiny Wings Takes Top Honors in iPhone Charts "After premiering at ninth place in last week’s chart, Andreas Illiger’s hit autoscrolling platformer Tiny Wings captures the top spot in today’s results, overtaking former iPhone sales leaders Angry Birds and Tap Zoo." - Infinity Blade Updates with New Content, Lower Price "Chair Entertainment has updated its landmark iOS action game Infinity Blade with a significant amount of new gameplay content, expanding the adventure with new enemies, items, and unlockable achievements." - Fight Night Champion Out Now from EA "While it lacks the gritty story mode that defines the recent console release, the iOS version of Fight Night Champion instead features a 'Legacy Mode' that allows players to guide a former champion or custom-created boxer through the heavyweight ranks." - Top iPad Game Apps: Updated Infinity Blade Leads Paid Charts "Infinite Dreams' recently released Can Knockdown 2 rivals Rovio’s Angry Birds HD at third place, while F-SIM Space Shuttle and AudioGuidia’s tilt puzzler Holes and Balls enter the charts at eighth and tenth." - Review: Dead Space "The programmers, artists, and sound engineers did a masterful job of crafting an environment that is compelling and frightening to inhabit. In fact, the illusion is so convincing that I didn’t realize the game doesn’t flow until I was halfway through it." - Jeff Minter Launches iOS Llamatron Remake Minotron: 2112 "Following up on his debut App Store effort Minotaur Rescue, Llamasoft’s Jeff Minter has released Minotron: 2112, a modern update of the 1991 Atari ST and Amiga shooter Llamatron." - Top iPhone Game Apps: Tiny Wings Topples Angry Birds "Ludia’s Where’s Waldo? returns to the top ten at fourth place following a drop in price to 99 cents, as NaturalMotion’s Jenga and Com2uS’s Slice It! compete in the chart’s latter half." - Kairosoft Launches Game Dev Story Follow-Up Hot Springs Story "Much like in Game Dev Story, Hot Springs Story equips players with a variety of business management options, with the goal being to attract customers to a recently launched hot springs hotel." - Eric Chahi Announces Another World for iPad "Veteran game designer Eric Chahi revealed during a postmortem session at the Game Developers Conference that his classic puzzle-platformer Another World (released in North America as Out of This World) is coming soon to the iPad."
