Best of FingerGaming: From Soosiz to Dark Nebula

Gamasutra rounds up the week's news and reviews from sister iPhone site FingerGaming, this time covering recent releases including Soosiz, Pang Mobile, Dark Nebula, Buster Bros., and more.
[Gamasutra rounds up the week's news and reviews from sister iPhone site FingerGaming, as written by editor in chief Danny Cowan and authors Louise Yang and Jonathan Glover.] This week, FingerGaming covers recent releases like the gravity-flipping platformer Soosiz, iPhone Buster Bros. adaptation Pang Mobile, and the accelerometer-controlled action game Dark Nebula. Here are the top stories from the last seven days: - Ngmoco Releases Free, DLC-Supported Version of Rolando 2 "Ngmoco is quick to follow up on Apple’s recent announcement that free apps may now include paid content via in-app purchases. The company has released Rolando 2: Chapter 1, a free download that includes the game’s first few levels, with the remaining stages available as paid downloadable content." - Top-Grossing Game Apps: Tap Tap Revenge 3 Sees Big First-Week Sales "After a recent and successful debut, the 99-cent Tap Tap Revenge 3 ranks in as today’s top-grossing App Store title. EA’s FIFA 10, priced at $9.99, falls to second place, as Need for Speed Undercover climbs up two spots to take third." - Soosiz: An Inventive Gravity-Flipping Platformer "Touch Foo is a new face in the App Store, and its debut iPhone title is something special indeed. Soosiz is a side-scrolling hop-and-bop platformer with a planet-hopping mechanic borrowed from Super Mario Galaxy." - First iPhone Noby Noby Boy Screenshots Released "Via Noby Noby Boy’s Facebook profile comes the first two in-game screenshots from the upcoming iPhone port of Noby Noby Boy. And they’re about as inscrutable as you would imagine." - Top Free Game App Downloads for the Week "LabPixies’ match-three puzzler Line Up Free comes out on top in this week’s free app chart. A free point promotion puts Storm8’s social game Vampires Live at second place and iMobsters at seventh." - Battlefield 2 Lead Designer Releases Dark Nebula for iPhone "Gaming industry veteran Anders Hejdenberg is now focusing his efforts on the newly formed iPhone development studio 1337 Game Design. Hejdenberg’s Dark Nebula: Episode 1 is the first 1337 Game Design title to debut in the App Store." - Buster Bros. Comes to iPhone with Pang Mobile "Buster Bros. has previously been translated to the iPhone unofficially in titles like Buster Boy, but the series now has an officially licensed App Store release with Player X’s Pang Mobile." - Top Selling Paid Game Apps for the Week "Tap Tap Revenge 3 steals the top chart spot away from last week’s champion title Cartoon Wars. Skee-Ball rises up to finish second in today’s sales results, while Backbreaker Football makes its chart debut this week at fourth place."
