Since the iPhone launched, there have been countless drawing apps released in the App Store. Draw Something by OMGPOP is a drawing app that offers something completely new. Ever played Pictionary? Well, this app allows you to do just that. The best part is that you don’t have to be in the same room as the person with whom you are playing. … [Read more]App Review: Blast the Alien by Zondo Games
Blast the Alien by Zondo Games was released to the iTunes App Store about 2 weeks ago. So far, it has not shown great popularity, but it is the type of game that typically does very well. It is a physics puzzle game. The graphics are great. I couldn’t immediately see any reason why it wouldn’t be a great app to own. I especially enjoyed the… [Read more]App Review: PipeLand by SnT Apps
I grew up playing a card game called Pipe Works where the object of the game was to build a pipe from the spigot to the spout to deliver water. So, when I saw the app, PipeLand, I thought that it might be a similar game that I would enjoy playing. Once I downloaded and started playing the game, I found that it was not very much like what I had expected… [Read more]App Review: Noogra Nuts by Oren Bengigi
When the game Pocket God came out, my son couldn’t get enough of cracking the coconuts on the heads of the pygmies and then watching them eat them. If you enjoyed that game, you will love this one. Noogra Nuts features a squirrel with a very hard head. He uses it to crack the shells of the nuts that are falling from the sky. Once he cracks them,… [Read more]App Review: Where’s My Water? by Disney
I would never have thought to buy myself a Disney game. I don’t exactly fit the target audience range for most of Disney’s products. When a friend showed me this app, it immediately caught my attention and held it for hours as I struggled to get Swampy his water without filling his tub with gloppy green goo.
Who is Swampy? Swampy is a cartoon… [Read more]App Review: Ragdoll Blaster 3 by Backflip Studios
Just released for iPhone and iPad, Ragdoll Blaster 3 is a great game that follows well in the footsteps of the other Ragdoll Blaster games. That having been said, I think this new version of their game will soon overshadow what started out as a simple game consisting of shooting a ragdoll out of a canon to hit a target. Don’t get me wrong, I love… [Read more]App Review: iQuarium for iPhone by Infinite Dreams Inc.
iQuarium is one of those apps that keeps you coming back for more not because it’s an addicting game, but because you want to know the next tank gadget that you’ve earned (oh, and you have to keep feeding your fish). That’s right, iQuarium is a fun and addicting pocket pet if you will, requiring that you feed him (or her, depending on how you named… [Read more]App Review: BioSub by Origin8
I have long been a fan of the Sentinel games by Origin8. These tower defense games are some of my favorites. In creating BioSub, Origin8 explores a very different type of game. BioSub combines physics and problem solving into one very challenging and unique game. You are a mini sub and your goal is to destroy the canisters in the water around… [Read more]App Review: Bear on a Wire by Dreamsocket, Inc.
Bear on a Wire is a very entertaining app featuring a bear riding a bike on telephone wires. The picture of that huge bear on a bike is quite comical and is enough to bring a smile to your face. The object of the game is to complete each course in the time allotted. There is not much time to spare, so you will have to move quickly. Just getting… [Read more]App Review: MonsterKill by Origin8
With Halloween approaching at the end of October, we are bound to see more apps with ghouls, ghosts, and mummies. MonsterKill, the newest game by Origin8, is a great new app in this genre. MonsterKill is not a traditional tower defense game like the earlier Sentinel games also by Origin8, but it does borrow some elements from them. Your job is… [Read more]
