Back in 2008: Probably one of the last games released for the iPod Classic

iPod Classic games were never a big thing really. They never took off like the app store, and this was one of the last to come out. It was a strange music game where apparently your songs (on your iPod) became warriors. I never took to it, but you can read the original post here.

iMPC Pro arrives for your iPad

After a long wait it’s here …

For a limited time, iMPC Pro is $12.99 (normally $19.99) — the price of original iMPC off. Thanks to everyone for supporting and creating with iMPC!
