Let’s Golf! in Review – A Hole in One?

From the opening video, your first thought has to be nothing but amazement at the graphical wizardry of Gameloft’s Let’s Golf!. I know my first reaction was “wow!”, and I would expect everyone else’s to be as well. Let me say this right off the bat, this is definitely one of the best looking games

The Oregon Trail in Review – Patience is a Virtue

I was looking forward to playing Oregon Trail, simply based on everyone’s nostalgia of playing this classic title on their Apple II.  I can admit I never played the game (at least I don’t remember playing it when I was younger).  It seems it was an educational game played in many elementary schools and was

Monster Trucks Nitro in Review- Monster Disappointment

I was really excited to play this game. “Was” is the key word in the previous sentence. Driving big monster trucks, mixed in with some nitro and this was shaping up to be a great game. The intro splash screen had me all excited…5 minutes later, I was left scratching my head thinking “this is

Chocolatier in Review – Sweet App Goodness

Finally, another Time Management game to ease my new addiction…Phew, I feel better! Actually, Chocolatier, brought to us by PlayFirst is actually so much more than that. Sure, there is the time management aspect in terms of efficiently using your time (in this case travel), but at heart, it’s more of a tycoon/economic type game.

Rasta Monkey in Review – Ganja Not Included

I’ll be honest. I had a very hard time playing Rasta Monkey, without instantly comparing it to Sway. Both are platformers that use “physics” to swing/move your character from the starting line to the finish line. I will try to keep my focus however on the game at hand, Rasta Monkey…

Supermarket Mania – Mayhem at the Supermarket!

Your local time management expert, Dave P. reporting for duty! You guessed it, I’m hard at work (or hardly working, depending on how you look at it) playing another time management game. Boy, I’m getting good at these! For all those that follow my reviews religiously (big shout out to my wife), you’ll know that

Sentinel in Review – TD goes Sci-Fi!

One of the things I love about the app store is the sheer amount of choice.  Don’t get me wrong, some days I hate it as well also for that very same reason.  But, when you like a specific genre, such as TD games for example, it’s a nice place to be able to visit.

Zen Bound in Review – Freakin’ AmaZEN! + 1 Promo Code!

This may be my last review here at TouchMyApps.  I don’t know if I need to play any other game again.  Seriously, I don’t think I’ve ever been able to write as simple a review as this.  Basically, all I’m going to tell you is that you must get this game, you need this game,

Sway in Review – Let me PerSWAY you to get this!!!

How can a game that is so simple, be so challenging and fun at the same time? I mean really? I have never played a game where the instructions were so short and simple. I watched the tutorial video and thought to myself this was going to be simplest and easiest game I’ve ever played.

Orions: Legends of Wizards in Review – A card game of legendary proportions

I’ll be honest.  I’ve never played card games on computers or consoles.  Sure, I’ve played hearts on my PC, but that’s about it.  I used to play Hearts, Euchre and Crazy Eights when I was younger, but I really haven’t played any card games since then. After playing Orions: Legends of Wizards, I’m left wondering

Cake Mania 3 in Review – Can we have our cake and eat it too?

As you all know from my previous review, I’m a real-time managing expert.  Ok, I may not be an expert, and I may not even be close to a professional, but I do know fun and intense games when I see them.  Cake Mania 3 is definitely on the fun and intense side, and probably

Wedding Dash in Review – Let the honeymoon begin?

I’ve watched my wife play time management games for years now.  I have to be honest that I’ve never really understood the attraction to the genre.  Well, it was time to find out what these types of games are all about, and I now have a new found appreciation for the genre. What I first

Westward in Review – Worth riding off into the sunset with?

There’s nothing quite like coming to a new world or city, to find out it hasn’t been developed yet.  Welcome to Westward pardner!  You are among the first settlers in the West!! While this may be a port of a PC game from a few years back, it’s still a whole lot of fun!  Most

Alien Blobs in Review – A new “spin” on the match 3 genre?

Yes, here at Touchmyapps, we are dedicated to bring you as many reviews as we can.  If it means I have to sacrifice myself and try every match 3 game, I will….for you! So, without further ado, let’s review another match 3 style game. Right off the bat, this isn’t your mother (or father’s) match

ATTRACTION in Review- Still attracted to the genre?

Match 3 puzzle games.  What’s not to love right?  Fortunately if you like them, unfortunately if you don’t, there are many many choices to be had in the App Store.  Perhaps it’s the fact that these type of games seem to translate very well to the touch screen or it’s just a familiar and popular

SlotZ Racer in Review – One Button of Pure Unadulterated Fun!!

Racing games.  It feels like I’ve played them since the beginning of time.  I remember playing Turbo on my ColecoVision (I know… what the heck is/was a ColecoVision?).  I played Pole Position and OutRun in the arcades, and the updated racers from Need for Speed, Forza to Burnout.  I don’t want to toot my own

A-Go-Go Square in Review – Go-Go or No-Go?

Let me begin by saying I love Qix style games.  I remember playing them in arcades… Yes, I know it’s hard to believe but us “elderly” folks actually used to go to arcades to socialize and play games, rather than in our basements talking through headphones with our friends who are in a different household,

TanZen in Review – Not just another puzzle game

What can I really say about TanZen, other than this is a perfect puzzle game for the iPhone and iPod Touch.  There is a lite version for you try out, but beware, if you’re going to try the lite version, chances are you’re going to upgrade to the full version.

STITCH’em WORDS in Review – A Picture is worth how many Words?

Word games, we’ve all played them.  Crossword puzzles, Scrabble, Boggle etc etc.  I’ve honestly never been a huge fan of these type of games, but for some reason, I really enjoy them on my Touch.  Either I’m getting wiser with age, or these games translate beautifully on this device.  Maybe it’s both…
