The graphically impressive Combat Arms: Zombies, built on the powerful Unreal Engine 3, has made its debut on the iOS. It has become 9th game in the global market.
The MapleStory franchise is taking a slightly different approach in MapleStory Cave Crawlers, the latest game from Nexon Mobile for the iOS. It seems that following MapleStory’s massive success on the PC Nexon is still experimenting the best way to deliver it to mobile platforms.
MapleStory Cave Crawlers is a randomized dungeon running adventure with the Fighter and Thief classes being offered to players. Battles take place outside of the open world in a 2D view. Battles have a rhythmic element with players having to tap at the right time to attack monsters, tap while the sword is in the red region and a special attack will be performed.
MapleStory Cave Crawlers is now available in the Apple App Store for the iPod and iPod Touch for $1.99, €1.59 or £1.49.

Become Jack in the fairy tale, and hop on a magic beanstalk for an adventure beyond the clouds!
‘Jumping Jack and the Beanstalk’ is a jumping action game, where you become Jack in the fairy tale and jump up the magic beanstalk.
You have to jump up the beanstalk by stepping on the leaves. But the leaves will break if you stand on them for too long, so you need to touch the screen with accurate timing, like in rhythm action games, to jump higher.
Varied scores are given according to the jump timing, and continuously jumping with good timing will give you higher scores through combos.
As you jump up, collect the golden eggs and the regular eggs while avoiding the rocks and the giant’s hand.
-Tilt jump + timed touch
