A few months ago, we reviewed developer Philipp Seifried’s Ace Ferrara and the Dino Menace [$1.99], a game he created all the art and code for. The game was published by BulkyPix, and Seifried’s publishing deal with them was recently ended and the rights returned to him. Because the app uses iCloud, he allegedly couldn’t have the app’s rights transferred to him through iTunes directly, so he’s decided to republish the game under his own name. And in order to help smooth the transition, the game is currently free until January 2nd under the new iTunes listing.
This is a good time to check out this dinosaur-filled space shooter if you haven’t yet. Our Shaun Musgrave gave the game four stars in his review, saying that while it’s a simpler take on space shooters, it packs in enough self-awareness, charm, and humor, it’s easy to forgive some of the failings in its gameplay. Plus, the game has MFi gamepad support, and you could always use a new game that supports them, right?
