What I want other iOS game developers to do

As part of the 1.2 update for The Incident, Big Bucket Software has added a feature that I’ve been wanting subconsciously from iOS games since the iPad first came out. If you have a copy of The Incident on both iPad and iPhone/iPod, you can use the smaller device as a controller for the iPad. No longer are my fingers in the way of the action, it works like a flippin’ dream! This is on top of what is already a fabulous retro game, worth playing for the music and object graphics alone.

Once I tried it, I wanted all others games to work the same way. How about another use for the new AppleTV as games console with iPhone as controller? ;)


Mornington Crescent

20 Sep 2003

Does anyone reading this happen to play the greatest of all games – Mornington Crescent? If not, you probably don’t want to read on.

If you do, please indulge me with a game, using the comments below. We’ll play using the Queensbury rules (1972 Duchess of Kent additions apply), any Pimlico related move will trump, and Tower Bridge is wild.

My first move – Tottenham Court Road

    Inktober day 17 . @hicksmadeā€™s pen led me onto squid and their ink shooting abilities. I also found out that a part of the squids anatomy is called a ā€˜penā€™. #inktober #inktober2018 #ink #leighandjondoinktober
