Ghost Trick. Cool puzzle game from Capcom, created by the same dude that produced Ace Attorney. It's $10.49 but the DS version cost triple that.

Yep, that's the schtick. But there's soooo much more to it than that. Look up some reviews, man.

IMO, they're the best two games on the iPhone. The graphics are the best. The use of the touch screen is the best. It's a showcase app, but it's also addictive - and fun - as fuck. Give it a bash!

I finished it on the DS, I liked the animation and investigation side scroll type game. Might download it again for iOS and play it again

Re-downloaded the game last night, started it up this morning and straight back to where I left off. Level 41 and currently on my 11th or 12th timeline/bloodline or whatever it's called. The gem forging thing is pretty cool, got a gem that gives like 480% item drops or something so I've been getting items after every fight/treasure box etc lol.

I stopped playing for a while and I'm so shitty with the heavy weapons, missing parries etc. Is it just me or have they added in new(different) enemies with different animations?

No new Titans yet, dude, but I think that after the update I've been seeing more appearances of the "rarer" ones. MX-Hulk for instance (love that guy!) They've promised more with the next update, though...can't wait! Some of the IB2 specific enemies DO have scary animations, though, I agree. I HATE the Fel Siren, for example. Her flip kicks are complete bitches to defend against.

The gem forge is great hey?? Such a wicked expansion of the idea. How are you going money-wise? The best thing you can do at the beginning of each rebirth (if you've got the cash) is to buy ALL the gems in the store and just forge them all together. I guarantee that you'll get at least one that you can sell for 500K, and probably - because you're new to it - some pretty damn decent ones for your items, too.

Also, if you haven't already, get your stock of defence gems in place. There are 8 in total...fire, ice, wind, water, shock, poison, light and dark. Then, whenever you enter a fight, check for any elemental damage that the Titan has and socket your shield accordingly. It only costs 750 to remove whatever one you have in there already, and it's worth it for the amount of damage you can prevent.

They've actually made parrying a lot easier than the first game. You don't need to be 100% spot on with location, as long as you're on the same plane. For example, if they attack with an overhead swipe, you can parry either up to down, or down to up. And if the attack comes from any angle on the horizontal plane - top diagonal, flat, bottom diagonal - you can usually get away with just swiping on the horizontal. Practice makes perfect!

I just bought 300k worth of gems, combined them all together and sold them, only made 40k T_T lol

Are you supposed to combine the same shape/colours?

Never mind, got that 500k gem. That's pretty cool

It can be a mixed bag but generally you should end up with something better. Try mixing high, mid, and low level gems (by worth.) You get better results if you mix shapes, too.

Pft, not a chance at $5.49.
And it's not retina enhanced either.

Lame.

I'd pay a fiver for it, that's like less than 2 cups of coffee bummer about no retina too. I wonder if they'll eventually pull GameCentre integration like they did with the first one, still baffles me the number of bugs that still existed in the last update of the first one

It's cute... Already played the year 5, about to finish year 6.

I do wish I'd spent the fiver on something like 7th Guest though (which is what I'll probably start playing next)

Because $5.49 is just naked profiteering? For a game, a mere... 470mb? What'll I do with that $2.49? I'll add an acre to the
grounds. I'll chuck some more koi carp in my piano-shaped pond. No, I know, I'll build a wing on the National Gallery with my name on it.

All Im saying is there is no need to buy mobile games day 1, it will be on sale within the month. Now leave me be whilst I enjoy the thrift of saving $2.49.

I agree. But right now I'm making lifestyle choices that have allowed me more free time at home and saving me cash (not drinking, not going out and partying etc etc) so if I want to play a game ATM I'll just buy it (if it's not extortionate).

There are a few games on the radar which I'll buy if they go on sale before I get round to playing them (7th Guest, Monkey Island series etc etc)

Battleship (free) came out on the iPhone today. It's the same as the paid one, just a movie tie-in really.

Finished Deadly Hallows Part 1, about halfway through Part 2 now, don't be fooled by the simpleness or cuteness of the game. Definitely a lot trickier than the first one, there were a couple of times that I had to resort to the walkthrough in later levels.

Last night I went to bed at about 11 and thought I'll just play a bit of LHP. Managed to get right to the end of Deadly Hallows Part 2. I won't give anything away but I happened to look left and glance at iPhone during one of the cut scenes after what seemed like 20 min of game play and it was 1:10am had to call it quits then, will probably finish it at lunchtime today.

Absolutely caning Skylanders: Cloud Patrol during downtime in Vietnam. It really is a perfect little action title; almost impossible to get bored of imo. Get involved and let's start high score battling

I thought it was worth the $5.49, it's much more interesting and challenging than the first one. Comeon… it's two cups of coffee

As Whitey says though, it'll probably be on sale in a month or two anyway

Look, I think over $5 is too much for any mobile game. But if $5 is really a bother then it amuses me when your device may be over $600+... That's what made me purchase.

It will go on sale, everything does eventually but mobile game pricing isn't an exact science, the sale price will tie into a US public holiday more than likely or something else obscure.

If $5 is too much make sure you're sitting down when checking the rrp of the DS version (which is exactly the same as the iOS version)

Correct. Thought they had an app but appears to be just a bunch of remote apps.

Do a search on FLAC in the app store, doesn't look like there's much free stuff though.
