Get it Poppin with Bloons
Bloons - One of the best remedies to a slow day at the office is loading up a good ol’ flash game that can be played through your Internet browser. I wouldn’t dare engage in such a shameless waste of my employers time, but I’m just going by what I hear...
Peggle is Peg Popping Pandemonium
Peggle - It has to be said that I really enjoy Pop Cap games. Most are easy enough to play, complete enough to be a fair amount of lasting fun, and while I may scoff at the price to add them to my iPod touch, I usually find them to be worthy enough.
Numbrosia Adds up to Free Fun with Numbers
Numbrosia - Number, logic, word, and match-three style puzzles find their way onto my iPod touch quite frequently. Some I love, others not so much, and sometimes it just depends.
For review purposes, I think it’s important to gauge a puzzle game’s quality alongside its value for price.
FriendFreak is not a Good Friend or Quiz Game
When I first picked up the iPhone to play FriendFreak, I wondered if I would be stumped. How well do I know my friends? One thing is certain, I know them better than FriendFreak does.
To play FriendFreak from TopDownApps, you are first prompted to sign into your Facebook account.
Kick Some Butt with World Cup Ping Pong
World Cup Ping Pong - During my senior year of high school, we were given the choice in phys ed of playing competitive ping pong, or doing aerobics. Since it was the 80’s and I was already taking a Jane Fonda-style aerobics class three nights a week, I chose ping pong, and I discovered that I kicked ping pong butt.
BrainTeaser Proves to Be Difficult
BrainTeaser definitely teases your brain. Uwe Meier made this app a serious workout for your mind. Question is, how much of a challenge are you looking for?
BrainTeaser could prove to be too difficult for you.
Swirl May Cause Motion Sickness or Seizures? Cool!
Swirl - While those occasional anti-seizure warnings at the beginning of some games are meant to heed a cautionary warning, I sometimes get a bit excited about what great game I might be about to experience.
Ipong Has a Noble Purpose but it Fails in Accomplishing its Goal
Ipong! Game, from TouchTen.com, was created by a group of Indonesian teenagers with a noble purpose: To sell at least 14,285 copies of their game so they can donate up to $10.000 of proceeds to charity.
Sheep Abduction: Time to Sell the Farm
Farm animals and UFOs are common themes in the app store. Chickens, cows and aliens somehow bewitch people into spending their money. The game Sheep Abduction from Sticky Studios is no exception.
Test Your Puzzle Logic with Boxed In
Boxed In is a new logic based puzzle available in the App Store that pretty much encompasses all that a logic puzzle should be. Boxed In has increasingly difficult levels with a simple objective made challenging by specific rules of limitation.
Power Toppler - A Game by Any Other Name Remains the Same
By name alone Power Toppler might make you think of Topple or Tower Bloxx, but make no mistake, Power Toppler isn’t even similar. On the heels of the release of the original version, Tower Toppler, into the Wii’s virtual console, Power Toppler is a remake of the 80’s game, also known as Nebulus and Castelian, now available in the App Store from Silver Software.
Assassin's Creed - Altair's Chronicles Stands Alone
Assassin’s Creed: Altair’s Chronicles - In what’s arguably one of the biggest releases yet on the iPhone, Gameloft has taken on the ambitious task of making the first iPhone game based on Ubisoft’s Assassin's Creed.
Sea Rascals Is Frantic But Fun
It's kind of funny — I grew up in the Florida Keys, so to me (and probably to most people, actually), the ocean is all about tranquility. However, Sea Rascals, which is set in the ocean? Makes me frantic!
Galaga Remix Brings New & Retro Gaming Fun
Galaga Remix from Namco brings the arcade classic to the iPhone along with a polished, touch-screen friendly newer version that is just as much fun. All the key elements of Galaga are there — blasting away at enemies while saving your spaceship from destruction.
Pixo Tests the Powers of Color Observation
Pixo by PaintPoker is one of the more original iPhone games I’ve seen in a while. The basic premise of Pixo is to test your color perception by recomposing a picture in order of color dominance.
