I’d like to precursor this review by making it very clear that I’m a huge fan of everything produced by Bjango. They have a unique style of application development that always stands out from the crowd, with a range of excellent software.

Warner Bros. launched LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 late last year to complement the launch of their new movie. Naturally, this game is available on a range of popular consoles that include Sony’s Playstation 3 and Nintendo’s DS – but it’s also available on iOS!

Ever since it was released in late 2008, World of Goo has been a wildly popular PC, Mac, and WiiWare game. Developed by two former EA developers, World of Goo has been praised as one of the best examples of successful indie games. This past December World of Goo finally has been ported to the iPad, bringing the full game to touch-screens for the first time.

World of Goo has been featured in the App Store and risen to the top of the best seller charts numerous times for one simple reason: it’s one of the best touch-screen games available today. It’s incredible how natural the game feels on the iPad, while the art, soundtrack, and gameplay are suburb. Keep reading to find out more about World of Goo! (more…)
