Real Football 2011, FIFA 11 coming to App Store this week?

26 Sep

The biggest mobile football game rivalry is expected to get a refresh this week, with Gameloft’s Real Football and EA’s FIFA series going toe to toe again. If rumours are to be believed, both Real Football 2011 and FIFA 11 are likely to hit the App store in the coming few days. We have heard no official confirmation but sources within both companies are reasonably sure that footy gaming fans will have reason to celebrate this week. Both games claim to offer radically better graphics and support for the retina display as well as official affiliations with different clubs and countries, letting you mess around with real players.

However, what we are really curious about is the gameplay – will the two games take a page out of Konami’s Pro Evo Soccer book and minimise the need to hit onscreen buttons? And erm…call us skinflints, but we are also wondering about the price tags and are offering prayers that they will be as far from the USD 10 mark as possible. We are waiting and watching!

It's official – Splinter Cell:Conviction coming to App Store

10 Mar

After a whole lot of speculation about it last week, we have official
confirmation –  Splinter Cell: Conviction is going to be coming to the
iPhone. A number of reports have flowed in saying that Gameloft is
showing off the game at GDC. The game seems to be based on the
Terminator Salvation game engine and like the original Splinter Cell,
will give you a third-person view of the main protagonist, Sam Fisher,
as he sneaks his way in and out of different situations. The game is
expected in the App Store by the end of the month.

In case you have come from a planet where gaming is banned, Tom
Clancy’s Splinter Cell series is one of the most popular gaming series
of all times. It lets you slip into the shoes (and other sundry dress
material) of secret agent Sam Fisher as he takes on different terrorist
organisations and makes the world a safer place by getting rid of them
with a mixture of stealth and action.

Gameloft tops 10 million paid downloads on 'the' App Store

6 Jan

Mobile game developer, Gameloft, today announced that it has topped 10 million paid downloads on Apple’s App Store for iPhone and iPod Touch. The developer has popular games like Asphalt 5, Real Soccer 2010, Assassin’s Creed and more recently, a game based on James Cameron’s Avatar.

This is yet another testimony of the App Store’s success after Apple announced yesterday that it had crossed 3 billion downloads in just about 18 months since its launch. The last billion downloads took just three months! It will only get increasingly difficult for other players to catch up with Apple in the apps race. They should now focus on web-based or even Flash-based apps to compete with the Apple.
