Seoul is shaping up to hit 33 degrees tomorrow and it is still June! My friends, summer is upon us all. Even Canada has hit somewhere above 3 degrees already and with one more week of the sunny summer months, is guaranteed one more day without need of parkas and toques. Someone also told me that Moscow has just had their first thaw in 10 years! Congratulations! On this special event, Connect2Media have given away a glimpse at their hot summer release agenda which, more than matching Seoul’s weather, is hot!
As a big dog lover, I was excited to get The Dog – Puppy Pets to review. I installed it to my iPhone and booted up. I was presented with five breeds of dog to choose from: Labrador, Beagle, Boxer, Yorkshire Terrier and German Shephard. I chose Labrador, named it and went on my way.
Our Forums giveaway of the day features a mixed bag of fun and enjoyable arcade/casual/puzzle games, courtesy of developers Brisk Mobile and Connect2Media. From the former, we have 3 copies of the very solid defense game Medieval to be won, as well as the adorably addictive line-drawing Fluffy Farm. And from the latter, 5 codes each for the delightful Arachnadoodle, String’Em In and Timeloop are up for grabs. Feel like adding a few more quality titles to your app collection? Contest details after the break!
Over the past 2 months, there was an increasing number of TMA readers who felt that it was time for TouchMyApps.com to have its own Forums – a place where app lovers can come together and discuss all things iPhone, iPod and now the iPad (among other things). Well, we couldn’t agree more and it is indeed time. After having spent considerable time consulting with the App Fairy and TMA staff, we’re proud to announce that the TouchMyApps Forums will go live on Feb 1st, 2010. To celebrate the occasion, there will be plenty of daily prizes to be won, including an iPod Touch 2G, iTunes Gift Certificates and a bundle of apps and games from a number of generous Developers and Publishers. For the most part, we will have about 5 codes for each title to hand out, so there should be loads to go around.
Rules for winning the different prizes may differ slightly, but they all involve signing up to our forums and making use of the discussion boards. Since we’ll be featuring different apps/prizes to be given away everyday for the next two weeks, be sure to come back often for the freebies and continue to support us. We’re all extremely excited about the launch and we strongly feel that the forums will be great tool to help bring the TMA community together and make it a better place. In the meantime, have a look at the apps/games we have lined up for you and be sure to show these awesome devs some love by supporting their work. See you on Monday and stay tuned for more details!
I’m reliving grade 10 all over again. Another assignment, another dose of dread. Except that this time, I am completely amazed by the subject. Arachnadoodle isn’t anything like a Robert Golding’s anarchic adventure; it is a ligth-hearted load of web-slinging fun worth more than its 99 cents price tag. But be prepared to sit down, advance some strategies, and get your sling on, because this action/puzzler isn’t just for the funniac.
Strung up with hectic holiday app shopping? Not to worry. Connect2Media’s Arachnadoodle may net you in this Christmas with lots of fun. This arcade collector, this cootey catcher, this spiderman game of aim and balance, is now available for the grabby price of 99 cents.
Press Information and gameplay video after the gap:
It’s pretty crazy how many games are stringing up for a holiday season which promises to be quite a sticky web of delight. Connect2Media (C2M) who have dazzled TMA with games like Go Go Rescue Squad are brewing another something something for eager shoppers, and if it ends up to be anything like its predecessors, C2M may just have a hit handy. Look for it

Some little boys want to be firemen and others, cowboys. The former, however daring, may be suicidal, and the latter have never been kicked in the gonads by a horse. It hurts. Connect2Media have a great game for those little boys who grew up but still long to rescue damsels, toss people around, and in general, play the hero. Go Go Rescue Squad (GGRS) isn’t your typical fireman game. You won’t be dancing on a stage to the cheers of dozens of 30-something women, but your duties will introduce you to the mundane: crawling into collapsing buildings, saving people from torrid terrors; stopping fires, and sacrificing your muscles for the sake of an air-kiss or a suave snap of the fingers from Darwins. Realism is not the aim of this puzzler, and thank God it isn’t.
Sleepless nights and whirling marble shooters do not mix well, but they are the fare by which I stay somewhat sober. Tumblebugs, a game which I am loath to call a Blackbeard clone, is a new game by Connect2Media and Tag Games which will have you spinning like mad. What 35 million PC users have already discovered is that it is fun, but not easy to save the bug world from the evil dominion of the black bug and his legions.
Connect2Media, the same devs who brought us the well received Go Go Rescue Squad, has released Timeloop, a unique puzzle game where the player must use short jumps in time (aka Timeloops) to travel back in time in order to help their previous self solve puzzles. While this may sound strange at first, you’ll quickly grasp the concept and come to appreciate what Timeloop will have to offer. Here’s what shigzeo wrote in his excellent in-depth look at the game:
But that is where this game is ingenious. Most of the puzzle-solving is done with regards to opening doors to the next room. Some are straight-forward, requiring only the overhaul of one remote-control desk. Others, however, require Nik to go back in time, duplicate and shadow his former self and finally, perform the needed action…Timeloop rocks. Its graphics are light-hearted, silly, and colourfully perfect for its theme. There are cute comic-book cut sequences and good humour all about this game.
Released at the promotional price of $0.99, Timeloop is certainly easy on the pocket and should please gamers looking for their next puzzler that has great visuals and one that introduces new and unique gameplay elements. More info, including gameplay video after the jump.
