REVIEW: iPhone/iPad app game Regency Love from Tea for Three Studios

There’s a brand new iPad and iPhone app game out today (to coincide with Jane Austen’s birthday), that I’m pretty much convinced all Pride and Prejudice fans will adore. It’s called Regency Love by Tea for Three Studios. I downloaded it on Saturday using a promo code for a preview, and have already got my first Regency lady to the end of the game (marriage, and 100 points for all of the accomplishments).

GAME Review- Matches and Matrimony: A Pride and Prejudice Tale

I had low expectations for a visual novel computer game based on Pride and Prejudice, but I was rather elated to play this somewhat elegant adventure.  Reflexive Entertainment has brought us this Russell Carroll game that you can download for a one hour trial (quite sufficient for a bit of light entertainment) or for $7.27 discounted price over at Big Fish Games.  While I thought it would be a virtual version of Being Elizabeth Bennet (and to some extent this is true) the different aspects and even the game play were all executed in quite a new way.

Read Pride and Prejudice for free- iPhone

On getting my iPhone one of the first things I did was to check out the App Store.  After downloading over twenty different apps I then started searching words of things I was interested in.  “Journalism”, “WordPress”, “Social Networking” and then “Pride and Prejudice”.   What excited me was that I could now take my favourite Austen novel everywhere with me without having to lug around a whole book and without any cost to myself.  There are a few free versions, although there are also plenty of ones you can pay for, and each boasts different features, layouts and themes.  In total at the moment there are six free downloads of the novel (not including library apps that allow you to download within the application) and they are very different from each other.
