Apple Pulls Big Fish Subscription Based Game From App Store

Just days after Bloomberg reported that Apple was going to allow for a subscription based gaming app, Bloomberg has issued a follow-up to their story, letting us know that the app from Big Fish Games has been pulled.

Passage Review

photo 3-2

Passage is a short, fantastically unique game by computer programmer and game designer, Jason Rohrer. The 8-bit game, which is a piece of art comparable to that of paintings or literature, has been around for several years.

Passage lasts only 5 minutes; there are no elements of danger in the game, no enemies whom present a risk to your life, there is simply the inevitability of death, and you as the player cannot change that. This, however, is what … [Read more...]
