Season two coming to the iPad

The details are a bit scarce at the moment, but according to a report from Gamespot’s GDC Europe coverage, Telltale Games are bringing season two (Beyond Time and Space) to Apple’s iPad platform, localised for different regions of the world. Telltale claim the iPad is the fastest-growing gaming device on the market. It’s worth noting that only the first episode of season three was released on the tablet device, though.

Of course, those looking for dog and rabbit fun without having to remortgage their house can find it at Telltale’s site for $29.99 on the PC. Just saying.

The Penal Zone price reduced on iPad

Telltale Games have reduced the price of The Penal Zone on the iPad to £1.79/$2.99 until February 10. The first episode of season three was first launched on Apple’s iPad platform on April 3 for £5.99/$9.99, so this is more than a 40% discount over the RRP.

However, the following four episodes were never to be seen on the iPad and there appears to be no imminent plans to rectify their absence, so you may be better off buying the package as a whole on PC, Mac or PSN.

The Devil’s Playhouse available for iPad

Don’t worry, this isn’t a late April Fools joke. Apple have put up iPad applications on the iTunes Store, and among them is ‘Sam & Max Episode 1: The Penal Zone’ for £5.99/$9.99. The iPad will be released in the US tomorrow, April 3, and sometime later this month for the UK. This means iPad owners will be playing the first episode of the new season of Sam & Max before the PC, Mac and PSN launch of April 15.

The iPad version appears to have a different inventory design, as well as having slightly weaker graphics than its counterparts (although it is being called “one of the best looking games you’ll find for the system”). It will, of course, be fully touch screen compatible on the iPad’s 9.7-inch LED display. Check it out in the iTunes store to see the screenshots and purchase the game if you need some freelance police at your fingertips.
