Rock out with your iPhone out!
Rock’n'Roll is a cool-looking action and puzzle combination game that is set to launch on the App Store later September. In the game, you play as ‘Roll’, literally, a well rounded character, who must enter the spinning mazes of Flint Island in an effort to recover the Evil Sky Spirits musical notes and save his best friend ‘Rock’ from imprisonment. We’ll keep you updated on this game!
The best Line Rider video to ever hit the Internet.
InXile Entertainment has released Line Rider to the iTunes App store. The game costs $2.99 and hopefully brings all the fun of the online Flash game. In the iPhone version, you can use the accelerometer to affect the direction of gravity on the track, and also provides a method to load and save tracks from a central repository. Can’t wait to play this!

Shaky Summit is going to be a hit for the iPhone. Its developers, IUGO, are a cool company I got a chance to meet down at BREW 2008. The above video is a quick preview that IUGO put out and it shows some of the basics. It seems you race against the computer while giant rolling boulders of death try and harsh your buzz. I don’t think the game is multiplayer but it would be a great feature. Also, you can download a Toy Bot Diaries demo FREE from the app store.
Spore came out for the iPhone on Friday. We’ve done a ton of reporting on this game and we’re very happy it’s out for iPhone. We’ve yet to test this game out but EA are great game developers and I’m sure it will impress. Stay tuned on QuicklyBored and we’ll get our hands on the game to show you an in depth look.
Can’t we all just get along?
Windows Mobile 7 isn’t set to launch any time soon, my guess is not for another year, but with its release will come Skymarket - the MS response to iTunes. Skymarket will let you browse, purchase and download applications and games over the air. With over 20,000 applications available for WinMo, we’re looking forward to seeing how Skymarket will cut the fat and leave us only the juicy and delicious programs that make our phone great. Will it be a high-maintenance approach like Nokia’s download service? Or will it be open and user moderated like the upcoming Android Market?
However it’s moderated, it is still a key ingredient in making Microsoft more competitive in the mobile space and that makes us happy. The more the merrier!

Audi has just released a mobile game called “Audi A4 Challenge.” The game uses the iPhone’s accelerometer in a steering and obstacle course. The game is big promotional push by Audi and will include video, wallpapers and info about Audi cars.
Android will be launching an app store called Android Market. This is really exciting news because a handset manufacturer making its own app store is way better than a carrier doing the same. There has been talk of T-Mobile rolling out an iTunes like app store but the problem is that a carrier will not be able to reap the same benefits as a manufacturer when it comes to selling your own apps. If a manufacturer begins to reap the profits of a healthy app store, it can afford to make better and cheaper hardware that will in turn feed the app store. Creating a perpetual cycle of awesomeness. If T-Mobile were to run its own app store, those profits can’t get reinvested in hardware for the consumer. We love the iTunes store because it makes a million dollars a day and allows Apple to focus on making the hardware better.
