MOGA MFi iPhone controller (EVLeaks 001)When Apple demonstrated iOS 7 in June of 2013, one of the unmentioned, but highly talked about features that was added was the MFi game controller SDK, which allows third-party developers to create external game pads for iOS.

Galaxy on Fire 2

Galaxy on Fire 22013 was a very good year for sequels. Unlike many movies, these sequels don’t suck.

Mine for rare minerals, sell to the highest bidder, and fight pirate miners who want your goods. This game is available for free.

The Bard’s Tale

Bards Tale MFi gamesThis is one of my favorite iOS games. Not because of any outstanding graphics or arcade action, but because of the hilarious gags.

The sarcastic and greedy songwriter has a hankering for something other than adventure. Fame and fortune is only part of the fun.
