With the impending release of the Apple iPad we are bound to see new games intended specifically for that platform. One of the first hobby games getting ported over to the new touchscreen media device is Days of Wonder’s hit game Small World. Small World is a fantasy wargame that has won Games Magazine’s traditional game of the year award. We’ve also reviewed it on OgreCave.Com. The iPad release will cost $4.99 and will be available from Apple’s App Store. This version will only handle two players in a face-to-face, hot seat mode of play by sharing the device. Unfortunately it seems that there won’t be a five-player version over the wireless network in this release, but at least this is a start. Future expansions are planned for the product for separate purchase and download.
