World of Goo and Bug Heroes

A couple of interesting bits here:

World of Goo is now available for both the iPad and the iPhone. It’s a universal app, so if you bought it during the last 99 cent sale you’re all set to download it to your other device. I’ve played it a few times on the iPad and find it a strangely entertaining game. It’s certainly not lacking in character.

Bug Heroes

I’ve never heard of this game before but there seems to be quite a bit of excitement around this latest update. The description sounds interesting:

From the creators of N.Y.Zombies comes an all new blend of action, adventure, castle defense, and role playing elements! Master up to nine legendary Bug Heroes, including a sword wielding Spider assassin, an armored Beetle warrior, a machine gun toting Ant engineer, and more! Shoot, slice, dice, and bash your enemies with a variety of skills, abilities and equipment. Stockpile food, fortify your base, and defend it from hordes of hungry bugs. Explore a variety of familiar landscapes from an all new miniature perspective, collecting food, coins and other items. Enter Bug Heroes, an epic fantasy world you never knew existed!

It’s free for a limited time so I’m downloading this one too. There is one part that bothers me though. This is an app that encourages in-app purchases which I am completely against these days. I hate the very idea to be honest. Charge the right price for the game the first time and just be done with it. However the game is getting a lot of good reviews and it’s free so I will at least give it a try. I still think the in-app purchase is a horrible idea.
