We've put together a list of the latest and greatest features here at Game On Mac from the week that was. Before heading to iTunes for your latest fix, be sure to check out our reviews.
The Amazing Race review: There's no million dollar prize when racing around the world from your armchair, but if you're a fan of the reality show The Amazing Race, chances are that you'll feel just a little bit richer when you play Ludia's iOS version of the game. A little bit. And only if you also like playing mini-games. 3/5
The World of Goo Review: Even if you've played it on another platform, you've never experienced anything like World of Goo on the iPad. Constructing goo-based towers, bridges and... other things from little balls of living goo has never been so easy -- or so tactile. And the game is surprisingly beautiful, too, considering the subject matter. If you like physics-based puzzlers, or just really, really good games, you're going to want to read the rest of this review! 5/5
Drawn: The Painted Tower Review: Point and click adventure games have seen a resurgence in popularity since the iPhone established itself as a legitimate gaming platform. On the iPad, this is even more of a truth, as the larger touch screen and better graphics possibilities make the iOS platform the perfect venue for the genre. The latest example of this is the deeply beautiful and intriguing game Drawn: The Painted Tower, originally created for Mac and PC by Big Fish Games. It is a game of intriguing story, dark and gorgeous art, and clever puzzles that test your patience as you try to rescue a little girl from her nightmare. 4/5
Dungeon Hunter 2 Review: If you enjoyed the first Diablo-esque action-RPG that blew up the App Store, you're definitely going to want to grab Gameloft's sequel, Dungeon Hunter 2! Featuring better graphics, a more expansive world, and even some multiplayer options, your game-time as the Immortal King's son (one of them, anyway) will definitely meet your hacking, slashing, character-building quota for the iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch. 4/5
Eternal Legacy Review: If you've been craving a full featured, free-roaming Japanese-style role playing game on the iOS platform, Eternal Legacy will likely hit the sweet spot for you. The story is typical anime/Final Fantasy inspired melodrama, complete with an angst-ridden pretty-boy with spiky hair (and a sword best suited for hacking down trees), a mashed up sci-fi/fantasy setting, and a heavy handed "get in touch with your environment" message that sledgehammers its way through the narrative. The main character, Astrian, is on a search for his lost father and, on the way, he finds himself battling a tyrannical government, alongside a host of ever-changing party members. 4/5
