Mobile gamers with Apple devices can keep on the lookout this Fall for Knights of the Phantom Castle, Military Madness: Neo Nectaris, Aqua Forest 2 and World RPS.

“This Fall, we’re re-introducing Military Madness, coming out with a sequel to Aqua Forest, setting up a new IP in Knights of the Phantom Castle and taking it back to the classics with World RPS,” said Yoko Tsumagari, vice president of mobile games at Hudson Entertainment.“These four titles really represent our high level of our commitment to gaming on the iPhone platform.”

Knights of the Phantom Castle delivers an astounding mix of action RPG and strategy to give the player an experience like none other. Using intuitive touch-screen input, players will execute strategies quickly and effectively by analyzing weaknesses and utilizing the battlefield by manipulating enemy directions. With deep character customization and in-depth strategy game-play, Knights of the Phantom Castle promises to be one of the most engaging adventures available in the App Store!

Military Madness: Neo Nectaris brings the classic turn-based strategy it’s known for where the gamer is: on the go. All the content from the original is brought over to iPhone with updated visuals, re-imagined cutscenes, and full touch screen gameplay. Bringing a heritage and style that no other strategy game on the App Store can match, Military Madness: Neo Nectaris packs the complete tactical gaming experience on iPhone® and iPod touch.

Aqua Forest 2 will deliver finely tuned physics based brain-teasers for the iPhone® gamer looking for the next level in puzzle gaming. A series known for its innovation and outstanding physics puzzles based on naturally occurring elements, Aqua Forest 2 focuses entirely on water physics and its interactions across an array of different environments. The aim is to tilt, twist, and touch water to navigate droplets through each of the 50 environments. Adding a new dimension to the already addictive gameplay is the full featured level editor that allows anyone to try their hands at making their own Aqua Forest 2 environments. Gamers will be able to create, edit and share levels with the Aqua Forest 2 community!

World RPS is the first iPhone app to bring Rock Paper Scissors gameplay to the global level! The game delivers the classic RPS experience, but unlike other similar titles in the App Store, GPS-enabled matches and persistent stats will track skills and match location to give gamers a new twist on the classic game.
