Apps for new iPhone 5 — what to expect?

As we all know from previous leaks iPhone 5 will have different aspect ratio from previous iPhone versions. What this will do to the iPhone apps? iPhone screens have always had a 640-by-960-pixel resolution and a 3:2 aspect ratio. Indications are the iPhone 5 will have a 640-by-1136 resolution, which is close to a 16:9 ratio.

Apps that use standard controls will benefit and use the extra space to display more information, static widgets or second row of buttons, we have similar dual-row context menu UI element on Android devices. The controls themselves will remain the same size since they are defined by finger touch requirements and not the screen resolution or aspect ratio. Games which take the full screen will have to do something with space when run on an iPhone 5 at both top/bottom in portrait mode and left/right in landscape. Notorious Angry Birds will definitely do great on wider screen and many action games will win a lot from using left/right space for thumb controls. Read the rest of this entry »

contre jour 1Contre Jour for iPhone App Review
Contre Jour is a new release from Chillingo, a developer already connected with great games that sometimes verge on the strange.  Contre Jour does more than verge on strange, it fully crosses that line into a weird and wonderfully artistic universe unlike any you’ve played before.
<image1>
The main character, Petit, requires your help to get through each level; this help will come in the form of guiding Petit’s through lovely surroundings in order to speed him on his way to each level’s exit.  The landscape presents one part of Contre Jour’s puzzling nature. Aside from the physical puzzles of the game, Contre Jour gives off a mysterious air of its own which is its own puzzle.  Black and grey landscapes, animated with a flowing backdrop for little Petit’s amazing travels.
Contrast is provided by the softly lit, glowing orbs which Petit collects along the way.  And the environment itself, while always portraying the same dreamlike style, offers up some intriguing variety; blue tinted environments with slightly altered physics create an underwater world with ambient lighting, while Petit navigates in the open air, far above the ground from time to time.
<image2>
To help little Petit, who certainly needs it, since he can apparently only engage in a nearly helpless rolling motion, players must solve the puzzle of navigating each level by creating a Petit-friendly path through its obstacles and pits.  The controls to do so make simple use of the touch screen, leaving players to expend their energy not on complex maneuvers but on mental aerobics.
<image3>
Contre Jour tries hard to be magical, and it succeeds beautifully in an enchantingly minimalist manner.  Rather than basing its surreal appeal on acid-drenched coloring, Contre Jour seems to be all about subtlety.  Finesse is the name of the game here. Contre Jour is so good at creating its delicate, twilight world that the strangeness seems to disappear; what began as very odd seems normal and beautiful once players are engaged in the game.  The one criticism would be the puzzles themselves—there aren’t enough of them, and because of how few there are, even at the end they don’t provide really significant challenge.  Contre Jour could easily offer twice as many hours of gameplay without worrying about wearing out its welcome.
<image4>
The really impressive thing about Contre Jour is how each of its elements work together.  The creative design behind the game is top notch, and the animation has a light touch that lets the minimal designs come to life.  The professional score that accompanies Petit is perfectly timed to the game’s visuals, right down to the natural rhythm of Contre Jour’s in-game physics engine.
Contre Jour gives users much more than $0.99 worth of enjoyment.  While I would beg the developers to expand this game in the future, I’d also expect it to come with a higher price tag at that point.  Contre Jour is a doorway into a different world that you don’t’ want to miss out on.

D.A.R.K

D.A.R.K. is a darkly imagined, outer space horror themed dual stick shooter from Chillingo.  It°Øs fashioned as a super-soldiers vs. aliens mystery thrill ride in 3D.
As a member of the D.A.R.K. Squadron, the player finds himself on a mission to unravel the events leading up to the current condition of the USS Stormbringer, an enormous military spacecraft.  The D.A.R.K.  Squadron is a military unit?think outerspace version of the Marines, or maybe Special Forces.  Serious tough guys encased in serious armour and packing serious heat.   Which is a good thing, because the crew of the USS Stormbringer might be gone(ish), but it°Øs definitely not empty.  The Stormbringer is inhabited by zombies, monstrous alien life forms, and malicious mechanical spider-like things.  Getting out in one piece is as vital as getting the down low on what went down, and this game supplies plenty of action.
The controls are quite simple.  Steering the character via touchscreen couldn°Øt really be any easier, with the top-down angle of the view and the narrow corridors.  Combat controls are also simplistic and intuitive.  You°Øre basically just mowing down enemies; it°Øs experience and survival that boost the character during leveling.  Proficiency with individual weapons also levels up as you progress, giving more oomph to your firepower.
The game°Øs not exactly a gamechanger?we°Øve seen games of this type in the genre before.  What it is, however, is a well-executed example of the type with graphics that pop and attitude to spare°¶ And more action to come.  Because D.A.R.K. is only the beginning of this ride?episode two is supposedly on the way as a free update.  It°Øs a visually rich game, and if you like having a horror element thrown in with your shoot °Æem up space epics, D.A.R.K. is a great choice.
Visually, the game is impressive.  The top down view is gorgeously executed and crisp.  The close ups for cut scenes can be a little shaky, but that°Øs to be expected?it would be nice to see that cleaned up for the next episode though.  The game has a nice gritty post-apocalyptic feel to it.  The audio is fantastic, with separate themes for combat engagement and travelling which is a nice touch.  Overall, D.A.R.K. presents excellent material in a great way, which adds a lot to the game°Øs playability factor.
D.A.R.K. sells for $2.99 on iTunes, and if the future episode is as good as this one, that°Øs an incredible deal.  As it stands, though, $2.99 is still a great price for a game of this caliber.  It°Øs compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad (iOS 4.0 and up).
