A Tiny Towers spin-off that centers around the Death Star from Star Wars? You have our attention, NimbleBit. And probably also hundreds of hours of our time. Also, a fair warning: try not to sing that Rolling Stones song as you read down the article. You know which one.
Tiny Tower plus Death Star - Disney has teamed up with Pocket Planes and Tiny Tower creator NimbleBit to make a game whose concept is so awesome, it might just break the universe. No solid information was released apart from a single teaser image, but we're guessing you get to add to the Death Star one floor at a time, adding things like a detention level with garbage compactors (with easy shut down switches, in case anyone gets trapped).
A Story of a Band on iOS - Finally reaching out from Androidville, Hot Byte Games' creative simulation has finally made it to iOS. If you thought Game Dev Story was good but needed a bit more of a Tenacious D sort of vibe, then this power ballad's for you. You may start out as a bunch of tone-deaf nobodies, but with a lot of practice, a lot of schmoozing, and the determination to not only rock and roll all night but also party every day, you will rise from obscurity to be the sort of star all the little flannel-clad YouTube bands want to emulate years from now. Check out our A Story of a Band review for all the info you could ever want!
Paint it Back announced - If there's anything years and years of casual gaming has taught us, it's that nonogram (a.k.a. picross) puzzles are awesome. A former PopCap developer happens to agree, which is why Paint it Back will soon hit the iOS app store. Based on a solid picross foundation, your job in this upcoming release is to restore paintings that have disappeared from the gallery, one block at a time. It's colorful, creative and familiar, and it looks like it'll have plenty of puzzles to go around.
