mzl.sxiaofhw.480x480-75

Spartacus: Blood and Sand is a fighting game iPhone app in the vein of their Soul Calibur series. You play as Spartacus in story mode or select from other gladiators and go head to head in a battle to the death. Story mode attempts to follow the plot of the first few episodes, and faithfully shares in the gore. Little clips from the show are also spliced into cut scenes to tell the story but there are no voices, just subtitles.

Google’s Android Marketplace to unleash a wrath on Apple’s iPhone

g

A leaked legal document distributed by the digital freedom crusaders EFF, discovered the legal red tape Apple binds its iPhone developers by. Truly draconian in nature the contractual documentation that Apple uses with developers for its systems allows it to reject any application developed even if the application meets the iPhone’s requirements.

Absolutely no reverse engineering for the iPhone’s operating system, nor any reverse engineering for the iPhone software development kit is permitted.

iPhone App Store fires up with Street Fighter IV

ST

Hadouken! Sonic Boom! I’ve been big into fighting games ever since I first played Street Fighter II in a smelly old arcade, so this news hits really close to home. If you’re ready to take Ken and Ryu with you on the road, you’ll be glad to hear that Street Fighter IV is now available for the iPhone and iPod touch via the App Store.

Not surprisingly, there are several things missing from the iPhone version of the game compared to its console counterpart. For starters, you don’t get all 19 characters. Instead, you are restricted to just eight world warriors: Ryu, Ken, Guile, Blanka, Chun-Li, Dhalsim, M. Bison, and Abel. I would have liked to see Akuma and Gouken in there, but no such luck.

slider_01

While Apple has already laid the smack down on most iPhone apps that contain nudity or even the implication of nudity, such isn’t really the case when it comes to adultery. Sort of. One of the newest apps to gain approval in the App Store is called TigerText and it seems to be targeted at cheating spouses.

The TigerText iPhone app “allows users to set a time limit on how long a text that they send will hang around after it has been read.” In this way, you can delete and hide those incriminating text messages for good.

The military group named DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) based in the Pentagon have recently announced a Request For Information (RFI) seeking iPhone and Android applications, may they be commercial or non-commercial, and to be used specifically for national security.

This request could just be to see who is out there and what they are doing, more of an intelligence operation if anything, as it states “This is an RFI issued solely for information gathering purposes” but that is custom for an RFP so highly unlikely.
