I never read the Sorcery books, do they differ from the regular FF books?

Yeah got that one as well. Havent had a huge go of it yet

Playing Sorcery Part 1 but annoyed there's no sign if the others which were promised soon

Only got the Deathtrap Dungeon one as I sort of know the background from the old PS1 game. Currently hopeless, no matter what my initial rolls are I end up with some sort of blunder. Get an 11 for skill, almost certainty my first skill test will be 12!

I see my table top RPG luck has carried over to iphone :lol:

If you like Boom Blox (which I do) and you like free games (which I do), then you'll probably like A Monster Ate my Homework (which I do).

Woohoo! After waiting ages to see it drop in price Rolando 2 is now available for only 59p in a one day sale. The same goes for Rolando too.

EDIT: I've since learned that the aforementioned price drop for Rolando 2 also marks the occasion of the game being given a Retina display update. :D

Incidently, who has tried the new Drop7 "update"? Not happy with this at all.

I downloaded Power Snooker yesterday and would recommend it. Its the first snooker game I've enjoyed playing since the Jimmy White one Archer MacLean made all those years ago which I had on my ST. Oh, and its free at the mo. :)

I'd tried it before you posted so it's not as if it was on your recommendation and it was probably nothing to do with the game either.

Hurray! So glad I waited a few days as Fast Striker has just been reduced to only 59p. Downloading it now...

EDIT:
Just played it a couple of times and what a fantastic game it is. Nice to see it has the transparency effects present in the DC version but missing from the Neo Geo version. A stunning game that no shmup fan should be without. :D

What, you mean the lovely new update that promises new graphics but ultimately only patches random bits of the UI, and that also wipes all your scores, forcing you to start from zero, yet puts that forward as a great thing? Yeah.

I'm actually so pissed off about this that I'm seriously considering the game's position in the Tap! Top Ten (where it currently sits at #3). Note that neither area/code nor Zynga's seen fit to reply to any of my messages to them on Twitter about the update either (including one where I noted that the 'upgrade' failed entirely on one of my devices). Appalling.

Thanks for the headsup on the Rolando games, been wanting them for ages and 59p each is a steal! Picked up fast striker as well as it sounds cool

my love of iPhone gaming came to a juddering halt last week. No idea why. Some random synapse firing probably - but i suddenly found the thing a bit dull and went and bought a new game for my PSP. Probably just a cyclical thing....
