A while back I reviewed Underground, a great side scrolling game by Chillingo which brings back the fun of the side-scrolling genre. I hadn’t really seen anything worth looking at lately until chatter about developer Origin8′s new title Robot Rampage started filling my ears. I have been a fan of their games for quite some time and had high hopes for this one. Read on to see if the app is a worthy rampage, or worthless rubbish.
It’s been a little while since I’ve played a good maze game. They are one of those things that no matter what you do, or how you package it, the main goal is always quite simply to get from A to B. It’s unique in that the more simple it is, the more enjoyable it is. You don’t need a million dollar budget to make a maze game. You just need creativity. The folks at Ironshod Limited seem to have that coming out the ***. I recently was able to get my hands on their second appstore release Reverse Maze, read on to see if I found my way or got lost in the maze. Feel free to discuss this review of Reverse Maze in our forums.
There are a lot of casual games in the App Store nowadays. One of the biggest trends being versions of successful browser/flash based games being retooled to run on your iDevice. As usual, some hit and some miss, but the formula is generally proven to be somewhat successful. From developers eTicket Apps comes the explosive Detonate!, a demolition style game filled with bars, beams and bombs. Read on to see if the title blew up, or fizzled out. Feel free to discuss this review of Detonate! in our forums.
If you’ve read my reviews in the past, you’ll notice that I’ve made no effort to hide my love for “pick up and play” type games. Having to work all day and then worry about my home/husband-ly duties at home, I don’t always have a whole bunch of time to devote to a game. Instead I prefer and enjoy titles that I can pick up and put down whenever I want without feeling like I am missing something. It’s been a while but thanks to the good folks at Glu Games and their new and addicting title 1000: Find ‘Em All! I’ve filled that want and then some.
There are tonnes of camera related apps available at the app store, enough to warrant their own official spot. The majority of the good ones carry a single-function such as: zoom, black and white, etc.. There are some multi-function apps but a lot most are photo-editors instead of camera apps. ShiningWorks G700-1st Soft Camera is a pretty well-focused software camera for your iDevice.
I have definitely noticed an increase in puzzles over the last couple months. The latest one to cross my eyes snuck into the app store without me knowing it last month. This game, Schrödinger’s Rat, from devs South Peak and FORMation named is the latest to pique my interest.
With the New Year well underway, lots of people are working hard to stick to those resolutions that we make every year that aim to better ourselves and/or our personal situations. For me personally it is all about organisation and with my hands all over Concrete Software’s organizational app To-Do List Pro, my New Year’s resolution might just stick.
One of the issues that circled the iPhone for awhile was the inability to make custom ringtones. Apple fumbled initially but eventually recovered but whilst down, numerous companies sprung up to offer their services. They offer everything from creating ringtones to custom custom soundboards. The latter I have with me today in 9,999 Ringtones Uncensored.
Remembering your passwords is probably one of the biggest pains in the you-know-what when it comes to surfing the net. With more and more sites require you to register to gain access you almost need a little helper standing at the ready. I’ve tried many password reminders in the past for pc/mac/idevice and have often found them wanting. Luckily, VenticentoStudio’s handy iAccounts password manager has come to my rescue. It is a password manager that can handle just about anything you throw at it – just don’t literally throw things at your device, okay?
I’ve reviewed DocScanner, JotNot, and Business Card Reader, three apps which were designed to function as portable scanners. If one lacked in features, the next was unorganised. Many people questioned the need for another portable scanner, but I ask: why use 2 apps when one is enough? Let me put it this way: Readdle’s Scanner Pro really is quite sweet.
