Game Dev Story Features for iPhone

On: iPhone

Well it's that time again when video game websites all over the globe start churning out their year-end Top-10 lists. Happy holidays, Internet! While you spend this time snowed in, unable to leave your house or get to work, why not check out these fantastic downloadable games?

Plants vs. Zombies - Xbox 360 and iPhone

A brilliantly simple concept: Tower defence meets zombies. With the help of comic writer Steve Notley, the guy who writes Bob the Angry Flower, along with a hilarious end-credit song by Laura Shigihara, Plants vs. Zombies is not only picture-perfect in its gameplay; it's all personality.

I think it was either 2008 or 2009.
I bought LIMBO yesterday. I have no idea how it's Number 2 GOTY, but it's good. I dunno... Number 2? Really?

When was Trials HD released for the 360? Either way it is by far the best downloadable game I discovered in 2010. I'd put it head and shoulders above Limbo but Limbo is a gem all the same.

I must have been lucky then, will think more about my strategy and try to give some more tips!

Won Runner-Up a few times but I can't seem to get that elusive GOTY... maybe on the next playthrough :)

I never got a #1 game but did everything you said regularly. Guess my games just weren't the Mass Effect 2's and Red Dead Redemption's of the GameDev world.

I just pump out games left right and centre, mixing it up a bit with different genres and things. Basically choose everything in the menu! I use Dead Bull sometimes, Advertise often - mixing it up again, Boosts, just everything!

I always do Research on the game mode too, gives me plenty of Research to use for the Boosts. Enjoy!

Exactly this Genecyde, exactly this.

Family Christmas ignored as I was 100% focussed on GameDev! Slightly embarrassing, but there you go!

12 #1 games in a row though :)

Winterbottom seemed good on the XBLA demo, but I didn't quite think it was 1200 points worth of game. But then, Steam did their usual magic with the sale, and it is still available for £0.39p! I couldn't resist, and neither should you. Even if your PC will struggle, I suggest buying it at that price because Steam does travel from computer to computer with you. It will also always be resident in your account, so you'll never have to pay for it again.

He does seem to be the type of man who enjoys cream and sugar... What where we talking about again?

The only reason James ghostwrites the entire website is because I spend most of my time trying to perfect a coffee-making technique adequate enough to please his demanding tastebuds.

Feasible. Especially since you guys obviously just sit around the VG offices all day playing games and just make James Orry secretly write all the reviews.

I dunno, Emily has a lot of free time. She probably could.

Emily obviously didn't have time to play it.
Guess that's going to happen. She can't play every downloadable game on the internet!
