Coming soon: Video game guides (Mario, Zelda, etc)

Coming in the next week after Apple's review is finished, our game guides will be released. The first six out will be:

- Super Mario Galaxy (Wii)
- Super Paper Mario (Wii)
- New Super Mario Bros. (DS)
- Grand Theft Auto 4 (Multiple systems)
- Zelda: Twilight Princess (Wii)
- Halo 3 (Xbox 360)

All guides will be text-only to avoid any copyright/trademark issues with the gaming companies, but they will be broke down by level or game section, and include FAQs, Secrets, etc. You can just take your iPod/iPhone with you while playing the game and pop it out when you need some help!

No more search Google and browsing to various web sites looking for help.

Best of all, these are FREE forever.

Expect over 200 video game guides to the App Store over the next 2-4 weeks.

Yeah, I agree.

Also, you should make guides for some of the bigger iPhone games as well, starting with Zenonia. That could make your company huge =]

I'd pay for that. I actually like the idea of having a separate app for each game. Will they have pics or vids? I guess that might cause copyright problems though.

I doubt that the companies would mind considering it is a free app so the person isn't making money off of it.
