As most of our readers know, earlier this year we went to Casual Connect in San Francisco to cover and report on the event. While there, we were able to meet amazing developers and play some awesome indie games. Well fast forward to later this year, PocketFullOfApps will attend the Casual Connect conference in New Belgrade, Serbia from November 10th to the 12th. Much like our coverage of the San Francisco event, you can safely look forward to plenty of news, pictures as well as roundups of the event. For those who are considering to attend, Casual Connect Belgrade will take place in the Crowne Plaza Hotel, which has some interested history and re-open in December of 2013. Apart from that, we’ve been in contact with a few of the conference organizers who gave us a heads up for developers that want to attend the event or enter in the Indie Prize competition. From what we were told, qualifying developers can get discounted travel and lodging by signing up through this form. There are some restrictions though — developers must be from certain country listed, have twenty or less team members, and currently have a game project in development or have a portfolio of previously released games. Last but certainly not least, applications are due by October 1st, 2014. Read the rest of this article ->
How many games do you have on your iPhone or iPad? Do any of them allow you to do any time traveling? Probably not. There’s a new game available in the App Store that allows you to do a bit of time traveling as you attempt to help two characters rebuild their society one step at a time. This visually stunning puzzle solving platform game is called Chronology: Time Changes Everything and it’s currently featured in the App Store as a “Best New Game”. The storyline is captivating and the game is very entertaining, but we almost never got a chance to experience Chronology.
In January of 2015, the original developers closed shop and thankfully Osao Games, an indie development studio from Denmark, saw potential in Chronology and continued development on this project. Fast forward to now, you get to enjoy an indie project that just wouldn’t die. After you complete the first level of Chronology, you’ll be glad Osao Games grabbed the torch and kept running with this project.
Does Chronology sound like a game you can’t live without or do you need more supporting evidence before you’re willing to give up precious storage space on your iOS device? I can respect that, so I did a complete app review on Chronology and you can read it here. So before you head over to the App Store and download this gem, take a look and see how “the Critic” rates this indie studio app from our friends over in Denmark.
Jeremy “the Critic” writes for and owns iOS Etc (http://iosetc.com). He’s a United States Air Force veteran, an air traffic controller, and an Apple fanboy. One day he hopes to expose the world to a groundbreaking iOS application from an unknown independent developer. In his mind, it’s important we share someones hard work with the world if it deserves the recognition. You can follow iOS Etc on Twitter as well as Facebook and read more about him here.

After getting delayed for a week, Red Bull Air Race from Red Bull Media House is now available for free with in-app purchases on the App Store for both iPhone and iPad. The fast-paced arcade racing game brings the fastest motorsport series in the world — the 2014 Red Bull Air Race World Championship — to iOS devices for the first time. In the game players face 23 pilots, flying at a speed of 230 MPH and subjected to forces of up to 10 Gs. Just like in the real Red Bull Air Race, players start off with training at the “pilot camp” in Brazil, while there they prepare for the racing season and learn the controls. For there, it’s off to the career mode on the trail of the 2014 Red Bull Air Race World Championship in eight different locations on three continents. All the courses in the game are recreated closely on the originals and are unlocked as players progresses through the game.
Six different aircraft, each with their own special characteristics, are available on release as well. In the virtual hangar, they can be repainted and equipped with various upgrades that provide even more speed and improve the aerodynamics. Those who have more fun in duels than pursuing a pilot career can try their hand in the global Tournament mode, where they face other players from all over the world. Players who want to prove how skilled they are must go through the same process as in the real Red Bull Air Race: Training, Qualifying, Top 12, Super 8, and Final 4.
