Independent developer Thomas Busse today introduces Ferries HD 1.0, his new classical line drawing game exclusively for iPad and iPad 2. Players control a fleet of ferries & transport trucks or passengers from one city to another. This is done by simply drawing a line from a ferry to a target landing place. The player may choose from different maps with different characteristics, ferries and passengers. Earn upgrades and new ferries, and with Game Center leader boards compete with other players.
Ballast Lane Applications has just released an iPad app based on Thomas Hoving’s book Master Pieces: The Curators Game published in 2005 to bring a favorite game of his to the public. The app allows players to train their “curatorial eye” and appreciate the details found in great masterpieces from 1200s to the 20th century. There are three games based on over 400 details from 54 beautiful paintings and Hoving’s inspired essays about the works and their creators.
