EA reveals future iPhone gaming titles, features

image

During its press conference at the annual E3 trade show, Electronic Arts revealed new upcoming titles for the iPhone and iPod touch, as well as a new feature for its recently released Scrabble and Tetris games. Spore Origins will be the full name of the iPhone/iPod touch version of the new organism creation game, and it will launch later this year through the App Store alongside Monopoly, Tiger Woods 09, and Need for Speed. Contrary to prior understanding of the Spore title, Spore Origins will not be a full version of the computer and console game, but rather a section of it. In addition, EA will use updates to add a feature to its already-published Tetris game that allows the player to draw the upcoming piece right on the screen, and to add Wi-Fi multiplayer and an accelerometer action to shuffle the letters in the player’s tray to Scrabble.

Monopoly, Tiger Woods 09, and Need for Speed are all “must-buys”.

These games would be more interesting with online components.

Especially simple puzzle and board games and a turn-game like golf.
