Doctor Who: Legacy Available Now Free in the iOS App Store

Doctor Who: Legacy

Tiny Rebel Games LLC has released their Doctor Who title for iOS, Doctor Who: Legacy. It is available free on the iOS App Store (though the game is free, it does have in-game purchase options (i.e. you can purchase "time crystals")). The app is an universal app designed for both iPhone (and iPod touch) and iPad and it requires iOS 6 or later (therefore it will not work on the original iPad).

The following is their description of the game:

16-Bit Doctor Who RPG? Enjoy the First Two Series of the 11th Doctor as an Old Style Video Game

The first two series of Matt Smith as the Doctor has been recreated in a video simulating an old style (I would say 16-bit) video game running just over 4 minutes long. Be warned, there are spoilers pertaining to the these two series (if you are not up to date).

Thanks to @EoghannIrving for the heads up on this one.

Torchwood: Web of Lies - Free iOS App (for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch)

Torchwood: Web of LiesBBC Worldwide LTD has released a new iOS app, Torchwood: Web of Lies (App Store link) to coincide with the new Torchwood series,Torchwood: Miracle Day. It is a series of adventures presented in episodes within the app. The first free download gives you episode 1 of Torchwood: Web of Lies. Each week after coinciding with the new series there will be another new episode released (presumably sold as an in-app purchase). Each episode tells the story through animated graphics and gameplay. There will be 10 episodes in total, again mirroring the current series, Miracle Day.

It is a universal app so it will run natively on both the iPhone (and iPod touch) and iPad.

The following is their description for the app:

Price Reduction for Doctor Who: The Mazes of Time for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch!

Mazes of Time

As previously reported, the Doctor Who iOS game, Doctor Who: The Mazes of Time debuted in the Apple App Store last December. There are two versions, one is for the iPhone and iPod touch, and an HD version for the iPad. Unfortunately, it is not a universal app, so you can either get the iPhone/iPod touch version and upscale it for the iPad, or alternatively get the HD version specifically for the iPad.

The prices in the US App store had been $3.99 and $4.99 respectively, but are NOW ONLY 99¢ each. So if you have been holding off purchasing this game for the iOS platform, now is the time (that includes myself). At this time, I don't know if this price reduction only pertains to the US iTunes App Store or if it is worldwide. Also I do not know if this is a permanent price reduction or a limited time sale.

Doctor Who Adventures "City of the Daleks" Ready for Download.

The computer game, which was introduced as "The Doctor Who Adventures" earlier this year has now been released.  There are a couple of sore points, 1: IT IS AS WE EXPECTED GEO-LOCKED, that means if you are not resident in the UK you can't access it. 2: WINDOWS VERSION ONLY, the Mac version is due on the 15th of July. and most Importantly 3: IT WILL BE AVAILABLE TO THE REST OF THE WORLD, but your going to have to lay out your hard earned cash for it.  I suspected this part but as the BBC now has to show responsibilty for it's earnings since the change of government in the UK this was no surprise to me.
