One of the better Yuletide traditions is the venerable holiday Advent Calendar, in which each day of December leading up to Christmas is marked off on a special calendar by opening its corresponding door to find a small gift, toy or chocolate squirreled away inside.
This year, we here at Cult of Mac decided we wanted to give our readers their very own Apple-themed advent calendar, filled with the year’s best apps, gadgets, stories and other curios. So each day in December, we’re going to lovingly peel back the door on the Cult of Mac 2012 Advent Calendar to reveal another delicious morsel, something really special that came out this year that we think every one of you should enjoy.
It’s Day 13! Time to get your tower defense on with Fieldrunners 2.
Fieldrunners 2 is one of my favorite iOS games, hands down. Developer Subatomic Studios has taken the tower defense genere to a new level with this sequel to their popular and multi-platform game, Fieldrunners. This second game was released in July of this year, almost 4 years after the first iteration came out on iOS, then Mac.
Today, the studio announced that they’ve added in-app purchasing to the game, something many games come with from the start. Those games, however, typically come at no up-front cost. Fieldrunners 2 was released as a premium, paid game, at $2.99 for the iPhone and $7.99 for the iPad version. Why did they add this freemium-style in-app purchasing system to a game that’s already doing well as a paid app?
Fieldrunners 2 is finally available in HD on the iPad, and it’s headlining this week’s must-have games roundup. It’s accompanied by a terrific new platformer called Apocalypse Mac, Miniclip’s answer to Temple Run, and a wonderful adventure golf game that I can’t put down.
Take a break from iPhone 5 news and get your tower defense on!
As we told you would happen two days ago, Subatomic Studios has officially released Fieldrunners 2 HD in the App Store. The highly-anticpated iPad version of the game features new weapons, features, and full support for the iPad’s Retina display.
