Every week, Gamasutra sums up sister iPhone site FingerGaming's top news and reviews for Apple's nascent portable games platform -- this time covering Raptor Copter, Prohibition 3, and Yoot Saito's App Store-denied Gabo.
[Every week, Gamasutra sums up sister iPhone site FingerGaming's top news and reviews for Apple's nascent -- and increasingly exciting -- portable games platform, as written by editor Matt Burris and guest editor Danny Cowan.] This week's notable items in the iPhone gaming space, as covered by FingerGaming, include the App Store approval of a redesigned Prohibition 3, a rejection notice for Yoot Saito's Gabo, and reviews for Raptor Copter and Space Deadbeef. Here are the top stories: Prohibition 3: Candy Wars Now Available in App Store "As promised in an announcement last week that I foolishly assumed was a joke, designer Hardy Macia has taken several awesome steps in adapting his Apple-rejected drug dealer sim Prohibition 2: The Dope Wars into something more family-friendly." Yoot Saito's Gabo Denied App Store Release "As Saito's team is now concentrating on developing a Seaman title for the Nintendo DS, Gabo has since been put on the development backburner." Review: Space Deadbeef "There was no game I played on iPod Touch until Space Deadbeef that felt right. I'll admit I've played several more now that do too (everyone is getting better!) but in particular Space Deadbeef was the first to make it for me." Offerpal Extends Monetization Platform to iPhone "In-game advertising company Offerpal, a favorite monetization platform among embedded gaming applications at sites like MySpace and Facebook, has announced that it has extended support for its Managed Offer Platform to the iPhone and the iPod Touch." High Moon Studios Vets Form Appy Entertainment "A handful of industry veterans from High Moon Studios (Darkwatch, The Bourne Conspiracy) have banded together to form Appy Entertainment, a company dedicated to the production of games for the iPhone and iPod Touch." FingerGaming Reviews: Raptor Copter "In Raptor Copter, you find yourself piloting a helicopter in a prehistoric paradise. Armed with a grappling hook, you must capture and kill velociraptors, grind them up, and transport their delicious meat into the future to be enjoyed by humans."
