GILTcH for iOS is a new, rather curious addition to the App Store. Available free of charge and optimized for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, the application looks just like a classic, retro iOS rendition of Pong, but there's a twist. The biggest challenge facing iDevice users isn't their opponent. Instead, it's the countless "bugs" in the app's code, which continually invade the game, making it difficult to continue playing. In fact, so glitchy is GILTcH that the application's name reads "GILTcH" in the App Store, rather than "GLITcH" (as it's presented throughout the rest of the app). Though, of course, we're not sure whether this is an intentional glitch, or an unintentional mistake! As developer Casey O'Donnell explains:
Its [sic] probably supposed to be like that. Maybe. Yes, GLITcH looks a lot like Pong. Its [sic] supposed to. It doesn't play much like it, however. GLITcH takes common bugs made in game development and makes it the point of the game. Or, maybe the point is to just sit across from someone see how long you can play, despite the GLITcHes.Usually, this isn't the kind of iOS game we'd outright recommend, but since the application is free, iDevice users have nothing to lose. GILTcH can be downloaded in the App Store free of charge, and it's optimized for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
