AppStore now counts about 500-800 daily releases/updates and with the recent news about Flash developers joining the ride, finding exciting new releases in the AppStore is going to become increasingly difficult. This is why rely on other blogs to get information directly from the developers and hopefully find jewels amongst the thousands of apps being released in the appstore.
We recently mentioned Polytron’s Power Pill, currently in development and soon to be released one of the games we really are looking forward to. Another title that deservers special attention is Noby Noby Boy from Keita Takahashi.
Keita first revealed his intentions to create an iPhone version of the PS3 downloadable at this year’s Game Developers Conference. More of a virtual playground than a game (fingergaming), Noby Noby Boy puts players in control of a stretchable, snake-like creature that can devour objects in the world around him. Most recently, Keita has been posting updates on the facebook page about the progress of development. These include two screenshots of the game which don’t really describe much but do give some idea that players will be able to scrawl messages across the body of a stretched Noby Noby Boy as well as picking up on the swipe screen interface and custom designed menu bar (great idea not many other developers are exploring). What purpose all this serves, we don’t know.
No release date has yet been announced for the iPhone port of Noby Noby Boy, but you can track the development with some pretty cool insights on the facebook page. The video below shows the PS3 version of the game.
