I’ve said it a thousand times and I’ll probably say it at least a thousand times again. I love puzzle games. I spend a lot of time in transit on buses, trains, etc. and puzzle games are perfect time-killers. Recently I was able to get my hands on Slideshot 2, a great sequel title from developers mschomerus. Read on to see how the puzzle pieces fit.
It seems that all over the App Store (and TMA) zombie apps have risen once again. I apparently am not immune to this resurgence either as before me today, I have Squish The Zombies from AQSystem, who also happen to be the co-developers of Infect Them All (TMA review). With a name like that it doesn’t take braaaaaiiinsss! to figure out that this is going to be an amusing little app.

Everybody uses avatars. Whether you IM, troll forums, or even comment on this review, social networking avatars are everywhere. That little image is your greeting to the world. For some, avatars are just small images of their real selves, for others they are used to show their love or support for various things. Whatever the case may be, we all use them – that is unless you want to blend into the background. The WeeMee Avatar Creator that we announced in February is a great avatar creator that’s been getting some much-deserved attention.

Having the ability to be in one room on my laptop and access my desktop in another room allows me to increase productivity and processing capapbilites significantly.

For those who are not familiar with augmented reality apps, the term refers to apps that combine both the real, physical world, and objects created inside the application. Well I just so happen to have one here today, a game called Look Up by developers Quill Pen Studio.
We’ve all heard about the iPhone 4′s reception issues. Although that specific scenario is a result of the now known “death grip”, signal issues can still arise on any phone all on their own. I travel a fair bit and anyone that visits rural areas knows that sometimes you can spend forever just trying to catch a signal. Thanks to Synzian’s Service Alarm, your phone can let you know when you’ve got a good signal.
You can never have too many puzzle games - at least that’s my philosophy. So when I was shown Quell, the first title from developers Fallen Tree Games I was more than happy to try it out. With over 70 levels and a promise to be both addictive AND challenging, Quell was on a pedestal before I had even downloaded it. Read on to see if it lived up to it’s own hype.
Reversi, also known by many under the trade name “Othello” is a board-game traditionally involving an 8 by 8 board, dark and light pieces, and hours of endless strategy. The main goal in Reversi is to get your pieces to cover the majority of the board. This game has been seen and played on just about every platform/OS/device in the digital world and most recently I was able to get my hands on one of the latest iterations Hot Reversi HD by developers nenet.
