Go Get PDA Games for iPhone / iPad! Dec. 9th, 2011 @ 07:57 PM Reply

Anyone who has played the console version of Alien Hominid may remember PDA Games, the platforming mini-games that were included as a bonus. They've grown a cult following over the years and even inspired BattleBlock Theater.

We're happy to announce that PDA Games is now available as a standlone iPhone / iPad game! The art has been redone, 23 new achievements have been added, there are replays and it now runs at 60fps!

Go get PDA Games FOR FREE for your iPhone / iPad.

It's a free trial that includes 15 levels. If you like it, you can pay $.99 to upgrade to 500 levels! If enough people buy it, we'll be able to make more phone games, so that's REALLY IMPORTANT.

Ah, I'd love to give these a try although as I own no iOS products it seems that I will not be able to anytime soon. I'm likely asking this question in vain, but are there any plans for the project to be ported over to Android in the near future? Or does that depend on whether enough money is gained from this release to prove that expanding wider into the mobile market at this stage is a sound financial move?

No but it's linked from that page in the bottom left - that one is completely free.

No immediate plans but if we have good success with mobile stuff I imagine we'd give it a shot at some point!

That's a great step Tom. I waited for this. I wish you good luck with this and look forward for more iPhone games from The Behemoth and maybe some more iPhone versions of famous NG games.

Sorry i don't have an iPhone, or a cell phone for that matter (not a lie), I have a lot of fond memories playing the PDA game with my friends, I remember thinking that they were crazier then alien Hominid.

Then I shall go out and convince every iOS device owner I know to go out and purchase this. I dare say that your marketing techniques have worked a treat on me. Good luck with the mobile development and expanding on Behemoth's horizons generally, things are definitely looking on the up with this announced.

What? Don't like playing the original AH with your stock browser that has Flash Player baked in? :p

Jk

Great news Tom! I hope mobile development works out so we can get more Newgrounds goodness on our phones, streaming devices and tablets! Totes been a dream of mine for years... now if you can just link up some skyward sword wii motion plus moves with the BBS mod tools so I can stab miscreants to ban them with my wii that'd be awesome.

The iPad version is built in so you actually get to play it as an iPad game!

You've probably been asked this numerous times, but why don't you put Behemoth games on Steam? Its a much more convenient platform for those who don't want to pay for Xbox Live(Like me) or don't want to try to find virtually nonexistent console versions in used game stores.

I'm sure you and your team have personal reasons, but I'd really like to know why. I mean, I would buy it!

So far it has just come down to resources and priorities - we'll see what the future holds!
