iQuarterback Goes Deep And Scores
The iQuarterback iPhone app by FuzzyCube Software LLC puts the football in your hands before, during and after the season.

Doodle Jump Entertains By Leaps and Bounds
Doodle Jump by Lima Sky appeals to simplicity in name, game design and play. Mimicking the appearance of actual doodles on graphing paper, the sketchy-sketch of a main character dons a suspiciously Qbert-like facade.
Pet Pals: Plenty of Bark For Your Bucks
Pet Pals - As someone who rather pathetically longs for a dog, but finds the combination of living in an apartment and owning two cats to be somewhat of an obstacle, I have to say that Pet Pals is...well, it's not as good as a the real thing, but as far as substitutes go, it's not so bad.
Tap Tap Coldplay Showcases The Speed of Sound, Indeed
Tap Tap Revenge: Coldplay Edition is the hottest new partnership in the Tapulous universe, following smashes like Tap Tap Revenge 2 and Tap Tap NIN.
Whereas, in Tap Tap 2, I was blown away by the sleek, futuristic look of the orbs floating toward the tap targets, more subtle bars of light stream toward them in the Coldplay incarnation.
Jackson Pollock: Unleash Your Inner Artist
Have you ever wondered how Jackson Pollock became so successful by dripping paint on canvas? I’m sure that anyone that has ever stood back and admired one of his works has asked themselves that very question.
Launch Penguins with YETISPORTS 1: Pingu Throw
YETISPORTS 1: Pingu Throw - Penguins are one of those well-loved animals on our planet. Maybe it is the adorable way they waddle, the little honking noises they make, or the way they fly through the air yelling “yippee!” when a Yeti hits them with a baseball bat.

The latest case of a highly regarded classic being reborn comes from independent developer nerdgames. In their debut application for the iPhone, they are bringing back StuntCopter developed by the late Duane Blehm.
Multiplayer Tiki Spades is Trump Card App
Multiplayer Tiki Spades - I grew up learning to play every card game imaginable and even though I’m more of a card guppy than a card shark, I enjoy card games immensely. It’s not always easy to find other people to join in, so I really appreciate a good video card game.
WordSearch Unlimited is Short of Interesting Features.
There’s not much to hidden-word search puzzles like VirtueSoft’s WordSearch Unlimited. The big idea is to find words hidden in a grid. The words are spelled forward or backward, top to bottom or on a diagonal.

Developed by MythPeople, Azkend is a casual puzzle game available for play online and now on sale in the App Store. Azkend features several challenges to be completed along with the traditional match three or more puzzle premise.
The Casket Tests Your Puzzle Patience
The macabre name not withstanding, this app is a curious puzzle that requires a bit of hand-eye coordination and patience to solve. The Casket resembles the handheld wooden puzzles that you tilt to move balls around and land in holes or move through the mazes inside.
Red Bull Air Race Lite Has a Ways to Go Before it Reaches the Finish LIne
A few months ago, I might have raved about Red Bull Air Race World Championship Lite. That was then, and this is now, as the saying goes.

Do you think you are smarter than a mouse? Catcha Mouse gives you the opportunity to find out.
The object of the puzzle game Catcha Mouse from Odasoft is to prevent the mouse from getting into a mouse hole by blocking his way with mousetraps.
Bubble Pop: More Than Popping Bubbles
Bubble Pop™ is the other app with the words “bubble” and/or “pop” in its name, not to be confused with Pop, Bubble Pop!, BubblePop, BubbleWrap!, BubbleWrap or Bubble Snap. Bubble Pop™ from Bapsoft is a great game that is much more complex than simply popping bubbles.
