Jukemaster finally hit the AppStore – Music to your ears

Some time ago we reported the problems Palm Heroes Team had in submitting their latest application to Apple for review. Having no other way out but to submit to Apple’s “recomendations” they quickly changed the “offensive” pharse to something a bit more neutral. And just a little while later, their unique app – Jukemaster is finally on the AppStore.

Jukemaster is not a regular audio player. Rather it is a tool for aspiring musicians to facilitate learning to play music “by ear”. You can adjust the speed of playback, loop selected fragments and more.You can find the full feature list after the gap.

Homer lands on the iPhone with The Simpsons Arcade (D’oh!)

There’s a reason why gamers dig EA. Within a short and recent time span, they have released the cult classic Dragon’s Lair and arguably the best damn racer on the iPhone – Need for Speed Shift. Well now you can also add the much beloved and (still) popular animated TV series to the list – The Simspons Arcade. And for many of you, any mention of the words ‘Simpsons’ and ‘arcade game’ will surely bring back memories of the original smash ‘em up Simpsons Arcade title that was first released by Konami in 1991.

MMM…CLASSIC ARCADE GAME ACTION
Get ready for doughnut-chasing daredeviltry on iPhone® and iPod touch®.
Join Homer on a hilarious chase through Springfield in drooling pursuit of frosted fried dough. Clueless and hungry, he has no idea that his desired doughnut is the key to a devious scheme hatched by sinister Springfield forces…

With art work and voices performed by the original cast ‘n crew of the show, along with the 25+ levels of Homer mayhem (and mini-games!), EA are hoping this latest App Store offering will be a hit among all fans of the show. If you love all things Homer, I suggest you stop whatever you’re doing and pick up the great lookin’ The Simpsons Arcade now. More info and screenies after the gap!

Much like how Pizza Hut’s app generated sales of 1 million in just 3 months, Blockbuster Inc. are hoping that their very own app will have a similar effect and give existing customers more control of their renting habits.

James Cameron’s Avatar now out for iPhone

avatar-game-preview1

Update: Our review for Avatar is now live on TouchMyApps.

If there’s a movie that needs no introduction, it’s James Cameron’s epic Sci-Fi Avatar. Rumored to have cost upwards of 500 million to make (plus marketing), this is easily the year’s most anticipated movie. While the film’s release date is still several days away (Dec 18), Avatar the game is now available at the App Store, courtesy of Gameloft. Having published Terminator Salvation earlier this summer for the iDevice, Gameloft is no stranger to turning blockbuster movies into mobile games.

Go deeper into the spectacular world of James Cameron’s Avatar™ and embark on a fantastic journey of redemption and discovery two decades prior to the film events. As the first experimental avatar, experience the amazing powers your new body bestows. Will you use those powers to save the Na’vi, or will you work with the humans to destroy their world?

Undoubtedly, many of you will be lining up in droves to watch Avatar. With the game taking place 20 years before the events of the movie, it’ll introduce you to the world of the Na’vi and how they came to be. At $9.99, Gameloft’s latest offering is a bit steep by App Store standards, but with great visuals and immersive gameplay, consider it the price of pre-admission that comes bundled with hours of enjoyment. Gameplay and interview videos after the break!

Playboy and the iDevice – bunny love!

AR-Playboy-01

(Pun alert!) It’s been a long time coming, but Playboy and Apple have laid down the latex armour and rubber weapons in the release of an official 17+ Playboy app. For fans of the magazine, there is a lot of digital content to love, but iDevice Playboy isn’t quite as much of a so-called “hands-on” experience as its print version. Apple don’t allow nudity – though there are official ways to get it – so Hef’s software is rather an advert for the risque publication. And, in the spirit of subscript, Playboy comes at 1.99$, featuring November and December; but subsequent months require a payment of 1.99$ per. The price may be worth it however, as users get a grab at advice from their favourite celebs and bunnies covering anything from cars to stereos and sex advice. Imagine that, sex advice from a bunny…

The Chronicles of Inotia: A Wanderer of Luone Released + Promo Code Giveaway!

Update: Our review of Inotia: A Wanderer of Luone can be found here

Over the weekend, The Chronicles of Inotia: A Wanderer of Luone bust into the App Store to confirm its spot among the best RPGs in the App Store. TouchMyApps’ review is forthcoming and we have one of our best men on the job, but suffice it to say that among the oft’ short-lived, simple anime RPGs, Luone sheds some serious skin. One of its best features is incredibly long play time which busts through dozens of hours of story play and many more on side quests. But when you’ve sussed the entire thing, Online Match-up mode is sure to pique your interest. Thank you Com2uS for continuing to innovate!
