If you’re one that likes to just play a game for 60 seconds or so then this game is for you. The whole point of the game is to survive the longest by moving your player icon (the blue circle) with the control pad and not hit or get hit by any of the pink orbs. Since the orbs keep multiplying the game gets increasingly difficult very quickly.
High scores are optionally posted to the “online” community where you can see how well others are doing (ie: how long they last in the game). At time of writing, the number 1 spot went to a player named “Masternay” with 83.16 seconds.
Today I gave Stun-O-Matic a run on my 4 year old and wife. The first “stun” of my son yielded laughs and squeels that only a little kid can make, while the first “stun” of my wife didn’t yield nearly the same reaction.
The whole app is what you see, a stun gun. When you tough the red button on the stun gun it makes the stun gun noise (ie: zaping electricity) and the phone vibrates. You can select from 3 different colors for the color of the spark. Outside of this one function – mimicking a stun gun – there is nothing else that this app does. I did, however, leave the app installed (which is something I typically do not do for the hords of free, pointless apps out there) as I figured it would come in use startling people… we’ll see.
Stun-0-Matic is free in the iTunes App Store.
PS: No, it doesn’t actually stun people. It’s an iPhone – remember?
It’s not everyday that one of the bands that you admire releases and iPhone app. Well, today, I installed the Death Cab for Cutie application and spent a few minutes with it. The app is pretty much what one would expect from a band: links to upcoming shows, pics of the band, videos, the band’s store and more. One thing I wasn’t expecting though was a morsel of free music… well, free so long as you’re using the app to play them – but hey, I’ll take it.
