The Magic World Behind LEGO Harry Potter iPad/iPhone »


With the seventh Harry Potter film hitting theaters this weekend, interest in the boy wizard is once again at ridiculous heights. Now, fans of the consoles versions LEGO Harry Potter can take their favorite adolescent magician on the road with the iPad version of the game, available today for the iPad and iPhone.

The folks from TT Games recently came by the office to give us a quick glimpse at the game which maintains the same structure and cut-scenes as the console version with a new presentation to take advantage of the touch-screen mechanic. Here, Harry is moved around the screen by dragging your finger or tapping point-to-point locations across the screen. Spells are cast by tracing individual spell glyphs with your finger, offering a more interactive element to spell-casting than in previous versions. Offensive spells like “Reducto” are cast by swiping your finger toward breakable objects or enemies.

id Software released its stunning on-rails shooter Rage for the iPad and iPhone today. The game is available in standard definition ($.99) and high definition ($1.99), and while the gameplay is fairly straightforward – shoot everything on screen before the mutants bash your brains in – the graphics on display in this game are simply spectacular, and we’ve been waiting eagerly to get our hands on it since it was shown at QuakeCon 2010. So we decided to put together a little video montage of some of the high intensity action you can expect should you pick up the game for yourself. Some things to keep in mind as you’re watching: how the enemies maneuver around the levels, the little details in the environments, and that this is an iPhone/iPad game.
