    Allied Star Police is a pretty good twist on the tower defense theme and you can get it for iOS here for free. This is a PopCap game designed by ten-year-old Owain Weinert.

    PopCap met Owain in April when Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Alaska & Washington told us about his wish to make a video game. Owain (which means “little warrior” in Welsh) was diagnosed with pre-B Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia last year and has gone through lots of difficult treatments. But his dad said that what he really wanted was to hang out with “real game designers”. So we volunteered to help Owain make his video game during PopCamp. PopCamp is a unique time here when folks can tinker around with interesting ideas, learn lots of new stuff and share it with everyone else at the end of the week.

      More on Destructoid including this video:

      I finished the game this afternoon. There are only 3 levels but the last one is a real war of attrition. Took me just over 11 minutes to finish that last level!

    Minecraft to appear on iPhone, iPad and Android 

    Woohoo! Looks like Minecraft will be coming to mobile handsets later this year according to Kotaku!

    I wonder how they’ll distribute that, will current players have to buy the client again or will it be a free download, but requiring the Minecraft login (that costs money)?

      That means I own World of Goo on Linux, Mac, Windows and iPad. The only modern OS (I have) that I don’t own it on is Android.

      Had to look it up. I think I saw a YT vid of it some time ago.

    Is the iPad suitable for gamers? For iPad games yes, but really the device doesn’t interest me. I spend all my day at a desk where I have access to more powerful machines. If I was going anywhere would I lug around an iPad? Possibly but the price definitely puts me off as I do so little traveling. It’s not available on this side of the Atlantic yet anyway.

    Some of my colleagues at work are going mad over the iPad but I wondered if it was suitable for gamers? Here’s one gamer’s review of it. The ability to play split screen games is interesting. I’d love to give it a go, but God, I’m trying to drum up the enthusiasm to finish this post quickly. It was never meant to be a gamer’s device:

    Here’s the verdict:

    If you have to question if this a true gaming device or not – then it’s not a gaming device. Its just a device with games on it.
