iOS: Games with longevity

I recently saw a tweet by Matt Rix, creator of Trainyard, that got me thinking about iOS games and their, for lack of a better phrase, long-term stickiness. In my huge pile of literally hundreds of iOS games, I started to wonder which of those were the best long-term investments, the apps I found myself coming back to over and over again.

Assassin’s Creed real-time collectible card game with multiplayer for the iPad. I’m pretty sure that collection of words makes you jump for joy like a giddy school-aged child or means absolutely nothing to you.

If it’s the former, you should definitely keep reading, because the above phrase is a reality. Ubisoft has released a game called Assassin’s Creed: Recollection for the iPad and it’s currently $2.99 in the App Store.

Puzzle Quest 2, successor to the fantastically addictive Puzzle Quest, recently came out for the iPhone and iPad. Can it live up to the match-three legacy of its predecessor?

I recently snagged Dead Nation, a top-down zombie shooter for the PS3, via the Playstation Network. I got a chance to play through it and here’s what I thought.

New pokemon were announced today at Nintendo’s official site. Not just any pokemon either; the signature legendaries for Black and White, Reshiram and Zekrom (RAM and ROM?). Is it wrong to still be excited over this kind of stuff at my age? Pretty sure I’ll be going for Zekrom based on appearance alone, though I could yet be swayed by the logic of stats. Oh, RPGs and the magnetism of numbers.

Not an hour ago, I just finished playing through God of War 3 for the first time. I know I’m a little behind the times on this one, but I feel like it’s still worth talking about.

So I just got Red Steel 2 for the Wii and I wanted to convey my impressions of the game to all of you lovely folks who read this blog (all three or four of you).
