On Thursday morning, Fenix Fire Entertainment released a game called Roboto for Android and iOS devices. We’ve been playing the game for the past few weeks and even through a few early builds. The idea is simple: you’re a robot fighting across 30 different levels on your rocket board in attempt to save ‘robogirl.’ The graphics are beautiful, the soundtrack is solid and the gameplay is addictive, if just a hair repetitive at times. There are dozens of exciting iOS platformer games but Roboto sticks out as one of the best currently available for Android gamers. The title is loaded with acrobatic puzzles, five different weapons, power ups and armor upgrades, and OpenFeint/Game Center support. Roboto currently priced at just $2.99 until August 8th, after which it will jump to $4.99, so be sure to download it from the Android Market or iTunes App Store now. Read on for a link to the game from both stores. More →
Microsoft originally said that Rovio’s hit game Angry Birds would make its debut in May, but that date was later pushed until June 29th. That day is finally here and, as promised, the game is now available in the Windows Phone Marketplace. Oddly enough, the title will cost gamers $2.99 — quite a price hike over the free ad-supported version available on Android, and even the $0.99 price tag for iOS devices. Worse yet, it doesn’t appear that Angry Birds Seasons — which is being updated every month with new levels — is available. Hopefully that version will be available soon, too, but we wouldn’t hold our breath. Game on! More →
In early April, Adobe took the wraps off of three new applications for the iPad — Color Lava, Eazel, and Nav — and they are all now available in the iTunes App Store. Adobe Eazel is priced at $4.99 and allows you to finger paint and then sync your artwork via Wi-Fi to Photoshop CS5. Nav is $1.99 and allows users to move and view some Photoshop windows, including works in progress or toolbars, on an iPad display. Color Lava is available for $2.99 and it turns your iPad into a palette for creating new colors and custom swatches that can be ported back into CS5. Hit the jump for videos of each app in action.

Earlier today, mobile browser maker Skyfire announced the release of Skyfire 3.0 for Apple’s iPhone. The full-point, browser upgrade packs improved video support for Adobe’s Flash protocol, Twitter and Facebook integration, a new OneTouch Search feature, content recommendations from social network friends, and an integrated Facebook “Like” button.
“Skyfire 3.0 for iPhone makes for the most compelling mobile browsing experience to date,” said Jeff Glueck, Skyfire’s CEO. “This latest iteration leverages the cloud to not only streamline playback of rich multimedia – including Flash video – but also to seamlessly integrate your social graph into the browser.”
The Skyfire web browser retails for $2.99 in the App Store — version 3.0 is a free upgrade for all current Skyfire owners. Hit the jump to see a video of the new code in action. More →
Just a quick follow-up to a story we posted yesterday. Alternative iOS web browser Skyfire — the browser that will let you watch Flash movies through some back-end HTML5 wizardry — has officially made its way to the App Store. The application has an “introductory price” of $2.99. If you’re interested, you know what to do. Let us know what you like/dislike about the new browser.
