Alien Axis Turns Puzzle Solving on its Head

The Inferno Challenges Mind and Soul
The Inferno is an excellent puzzle game that may force you to touch up on your medieval history. While the plot is closer to that of an action/adventure game, it plays more like a typical puzzle game with darker undertones.
Stone Skipper Is Simple-Minded Fun
Stone Skipper couldn't get much simpler: Find out how many times you can get a rock to skip across the surface of a pond, river or other body of water.
In developer Burnley Media's game, you assume the role of Max, who along with his faithful dog, Andy, spend the day skipping stones.
MAKIBISHI COMIC has fun, but bizarre, gameplay
MAKIBISHI COMIC - If you ever had the desire to reach out with your finger and poke robot ninja comic book characters into action, then your favorite app ever has just arrived.
MAKIBISHI COMIC has the loud and flashy illustrations of an Anime flick complete with awkward dialogue that reads like it was poorly translated into English.
Tank Tigers Offers Multi-Player iPhone Fun
Tank Tigers is a new 3D shooting game for iPhone that puts players in control of various tanks on different battlefields as you try to score the most combat points. Tank Tigers places players in a 3D WWII setting with five different tanks to choose from and two modes of play – single and multi player.
iScratch Myself Scratches an Itch for the Bizarre
The name iScratch Myself makes me think of Homer Simpson, or maybe my Uncle Bud, but certainly not an entertainment app for iPhone and touch, complete with beginner and expert levels. But I digress, iScratch Myself is an app that was designed to scratch an itch.
Finger Flick or Die in Orbital Defence
Orbital Defence is a retro-arcade shooter with elements of Missile Command, Galaga, Moon Patrol and other space-defense style games popularized by Atari, Namco and Sega soon after the dawn of video gaming.
Numbers to 1 a Real Puzzler
Numbers to 1 is a logic puzzle game for both the iPhone or the iPod touch that has some enjoyable components, but you must really enjoy number puzzles to enjoy the game. It is a blend of Traffic Jam and basic subtraction that may seem confusing at first, but given a chance, isn't all that bad.
DropZap is Puzzle Action Without Dropping a Dime
DropZap is a new action puzzle game available for iPhone and iPod touch that proves you can still get something good for free. Resembling other block puzzles only slightly, DropZap is set on 7 x 7 grid of squares.
Grab Rocket Bird While You Can

Become Santa's Helper with Santa's Run
Looking for a festive game to put you and your iPhone in the holiday spirit? Santa’s Run is a seemingly simple game that lets you lend Santa a hand by delivering gifts to homes around the world.
iChapaev Puts a Russian Twist on Checkers
iChapaev by MaxNick is supposedly fashioned after a Russian board game, but I have no real idea. At first glance, it resembles checkers a great deal. However, once you start playing it, it more so resembles a checker fight between two rivaling siblings.
Magic Earthwand Has Some Original Features for a Classic
Magic Earthwand is an interesting app that was clearly a labor of love and the first app out of the gate for new iPhone developer, SwalleyLama. Magic Earthwand gets kudos for being developed in a 3D algorithm designed specifically for iPhone and for its rich graphics and completely hilarious and “enchanting” story line, but it is likely one of those apps most people will either love or hate.
Omini Stones: Fun and Frustration Rolled into One Strategic Puzzle
If you just look at the picture, Omini Stones might be mistaken for another drop in the popular match-three bucket. But that, dear AppCravers, is why you should never judge an app by it's cover.

The arcade/puzzle genre of match and break brick games is inundated with titles ranging from classic games like Tetris and Break Out to newer games with modern twists. If this genre appeals to you, check out Storm Attack, one of the more recent games available from developer Rhock & Rholl Studios, LLC.
