Order Up!! To Go is a Fun and Addictive Free iPhone Game

Order Up!! To Go is an addictive management game which allows you to build your own restaurant empire. Like most cooking games you must plan your menu, manage your money and cook your customer's favorite dishes in a timely manner. Before each round you must stock your kitchen with the right amount of food and spices to serve all your customers for that day. The tricky part is you don't know what your customers will order, or how they will want their food prepared. The idea is not to overstock your restaurant while having enough food on hand to feed everyone. Failing to do so will result in wasted or low profits which you will need for upgrades and to hire help in the future.

Order Up isn't all planning menus and buying spices, you must use various swiping motions to chop, stir and cut ingredients to prepare various dishes for your customers. The controls are slightly more challenging than other click and point management games, but thankfully they don't muck up the experience.

Soulcalibur Finds New Life on the iPhone and iPad

The Dreamcast classic Soulcalibur is available for the first time as an iOS app in the Apple App store. Namco has dusted off the old fighting game and brought back all the original stages and 19 fighters. There is an arcade battle mode, time attack mode and two survival modes, but no multi-player mode.

Soulcalibur, originally introduced in arcades in 1998, gained popularity when it was ported to the Sega Dreamcast in 1999. It's the first sequel in the popular Soulcalibur franchise. The game has been upgraded to support the iPhone's Retina display.

Free iPhone Games: Fantasy Defense HD

Fantasy Defense HD is a classic Tower Defense game with RPG like elements and an anime art style. You must use a combination of loyal fighters and skilled mages to defend your kingdom from various waves of enemies. What separates this game from most Tower Defense games is the ability to buy items and upgrade your towers between levels. There are also various items like gems and treasure chests that you can bust open for bonuses during gameplay.

I gave the game a quick whirl and the first few levels are terribly easy, however, there is a lot to learn. Perhaps the game is structured that way to give you time to figure out how to use the many abilities and upgrades before it gets harder. Fantasy Defense HD has 5 different environments with 10 levels each, adding up to 50 different boards to play. There are also different game modes like "Infinity Mode" adding even more playability. The Record Board keeps track of your high scores, but doesn't offer any achievements.

iPhone Game of the Week: Numberlys

This week's iPhone App of the Week is the Numberlys -- an adventure story game by Moonbot Studios. Moonbot describes their app as a "celebration of the early fantasy epics King Kong, Metropolis and Flash Gordon." The homage to Fritz Lang is part children's story and part narrative game. The story follows the Numberlys, a group of cute characters who set out to invent the alphabet. Users must help the Numberlys create the letters A to Z in a series of interactive puzzles.

Moonbot founders come from a background in animation and filmmaking. They're more known for releasing book-apps like The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore, not iOS games. Recent reviews of the Numberlys make it sound like a stunning visual experience that is interrupted by a pointless child's game. The iTunes App Store customer reviews also seem to be split on this topic. I haven't played it so I can't comment on its playability.

NES iPhone Controller Concept Needs Help to be a Reality

U.K. designer Fabio Basile has come up with an awesome concept for iOS gamers and Nintendo fans. The iOS NES game controller comes in two parts, one which connects to the 30-pin dock of your iPhone and the other which fits into the headphone jack.

While the concept is great and will probably sell well, Basile has some hurdles to leap before he can make his controller a reality. He is having trouble starting a Kickstarter campaign because he is from the U.K., and he needs help with hardware design and iOS frameworks. Basile has asked anyone who can help to follow him on Twitter."
