During Apple’s annual music event yesterday, Steve Jobs finally unveiled the new iPod touch 4G which features the new A4 chip, retina display, gyroscope and two cameras. The processor upgrade and high resolution display will certainly make the “#1 portable game player” even better.
iPhone and iPod touch gamers are now demanding games with the best 3D graphics and sound effects however, the classic board and puzzle games still remain one of the most popular genres in the App Store.
Indiagames recently sent us an update about their upcoming strategy based board game called “Pentago” The game has a very simple gameplay where you place marbles on a 6×6 board which is divided into four 3×3 sub-boards in order to get five marbles in a row vertically, horizontally or diagonally. After placing your marble you need to rotate the sub-board which adds an element of complexity and strategy.
Pentago is an award winning board game and it will be available in the App Store in the coming week.
With smooth and easy to play touch controls which will make your gameplay immersive and one awesome challenging experience. Play to beat the AI or throw a challenge to a friend on the same device with the ‘Pass n Play’ mode. Track your progress, flip themes, change board styles, and unlock medals.
- Choose from many exotic themes and board styles to fit your mood of play.
- Tap to place the marbles and swipe clock or anti-clockwise to rotate the sub-boards.
- Immersive gameplay & simple controls make it a perfect ‘pick n play strategy’ game for everyone.
It is interesting to note that an iPhone developer had developed a version of Pentago for iPhone called Pentissimo which was taken down due to copyright infringement.
Pentago for iPhone has been officially licensed by Indiagames from Mindtwister Games and if you have been waiting for this award wining title then you will be able to purchase the new strategy based board game from the App Store very soon.
