Buy Robot Unicorn Attack on the App Store

Robot Unicorn Attack: Wish Upon A Star and You'll Die a Fiery Death

Ranking pretty high amongst paid apps for the last couple of weeks, Robot Unicorn Attack would be a mystery if it weren’t for the Adult Swim brand. Seems you can take a ridiculous premise that would never in a million years succeed as a handheld arcade-style game and then attach Adult Swim to the title, and it sells.

Buy Fastlane HD on the App Store

Find Happiness with Fastlane HD

Fastlane HD is like a scaled down version of The Sims. While it has some good moments overall it lacks the excitement or innovation found in similar lifestyle games. In Fastlane HD you travel through your town to try and build happiness for your life (as if doing this for real isn't hard enough).

Save Betsy is Like Doodle Jump on the Farm

Save Betsy is another version of the accelerometer-based jumping game that has become so popular for iPhone. It is akin to Doodle Jump, but unlike Doodle Jump, the leader of all such games where iTunes rankings are concerned, Save Betsy, has a seriously twisted vegan (or anti-vegan) theme, but don’t worry, no cows were harmed in the making.

Dreamscape is a Bubble Arcade Set against Dreamy Backgrounds

Dreamscape is a Bubble Arcade Set against Dreamy Backgrounds

Bubble popping games have been a part of iPhone culture since the beginning. In fact, there’s probably not a user out there who hasn’t stolen at least a few moments absentmindedly popping virtual bubbles between calls or emails.

Pinball Games for iPhone: 5 HD Apps That Sure Play a Mean Pinball

Pinball Games for iPhone: 5 HD Apps That Sure Play a Mean Pinball

Pinball Apps Review — Geezer alert: I remember real pinball. I know you can still find a freestanding machine here or there in a turnpike rest-stop or an arcade. But I remember row after row of tables lining our arcades, bowling alleys, and other dens of iniquity, before the Galaga and Donkey Kong consoles stole their thunder.

Buy Dice Diving on the App Store

It May be Hot, but No Pool Needed for Dice Diving

Dice Diving. It might sound odd, and to be sure it is different, but Dice Diving isn't a game you play in the pool, it's an iPhone game developed by Larry Snyder. Not quite Yahtzee, nor Phase 10 dice, but a combination of dice games that presents a unique format and scoring system for playing.

Rule the Lot with Park Rush HD

Park Rush HD will have you frantically racing through a parking lot to park and retrieve cars for customers with a short fuse. The game launches with you choosing either Johnny or Lilian to manage the parking lot.

Buy Frogiz on the App Store

Keep Your Brain Hopping with Frogiz Puzzle Logic

It's always refreshing to find a good puzzle game burried in the App Store that is both unique and fun to play. Frogiz may not be on your radar, but if you enjoy puzzles it's worth a look. Similar to Fling!, but with its own unique objective and more layered, Frogiz features a 5 x 5 grid with pink and green frogs and round and square lillypads.

Buy Toast Shooter HD on the App Store

Toast Shooter HD Pops up with Fun

Toast Shooter HD turns your iPad into a shooting gallery with the object of taking down the most formidable of enemies: toast. It is a great game that is especially enjoyable on the iPad's larger screen.

Buy Suzie's Sushi House on the App Store

Test Sushi Skills at Suzie's Sushi House

If you always fancied yourself a sushi chef then here is the chance for culinary glory with Suzie's Sushi House. The premise is to satisfy needy sushi customers by quickly serving up their rolls.

Buy Cartoon Roach on the App Store

Cartoon Roach Has Smashing Fun

If you ran to the whack-a-mole booth when visiting a favorite arcade or just love to squash insects then Cartoon Roach may be just the game you need. It is one of those games with a fun, simple concept that makes for a great time killer; the object is to go nuts smashing roaches as they scurry across the screen.

Buy Baby Rescue on the App Store

Baby Rescue is Pint-Sized Piloting Fun

If piloting a helicopter and rescuing innocent anime babies stranded all over the world is your idea of fun, then Baby Rescue by Kooapps LLC is the game for you. Using basic touch screen controlls combined with the accelerometer feature of the iPhone, you pilot a helicopter across colorfully animated landscapes with the mission of rescuing all babies on the level.

Buy Sudoku Uno: Stylish Sudoku for iPad on the App Store

Sudoku Uno Brings Brain Twister to iPad

Sudoku Uno is a good reimagining of the popular puzzle game for the iPad. Sudoku is played by placing the numbers one through nine only one time each in rows and columns. Traditionally it is played in newspapers or consumable Sudoku books.

Buy Word Absurd - Word Search Puzzle Book on the App Store

Word Absurd is an Uncommonly Good Word Search

Word searches are all the more fun when you're searching for the bizarre words rather than the mundane. Word Absurd by developer new-comer Trephination Proved Worthless LLC is a collection of word searches where the hidden words are slightly more unique than the standard fare.

Structk Stands up to Hurricanes and Earthquakes, but Not the Average User

If a 2-dimensial iPhone game were based on building toys like k’nex or even tinker toys, then Structk would be the closest outcome. Essentially, Structk is a physics application that is played out as a game.
