Flight of the Hamsters in Review – Up Up and Away, Hamster!

The Cartoon Network’s first release at the App Store (via their Adult Swim division) was an ‘R’ rated title in Amateur Surgeon, a game filled with blood, gore, crude humor and drug use. Flight of the Hamsters on the other hand, is their follow up attempt aimed at a much larger audience. While the game may look like something only kids can enjoy, its simple but highly addictive gameplay will have even adults digging all these hamsters.

Platypus – A Fun iPhone Shooter made of Clay

Platypus is one of those titles that has had relative success, but it seems like not a whole lot of people know about the game. Having already been released on the PC, Mac, Smart Phones and the PSP, it has now found its way on to the iPhone. The one aspect that sets Platypus apart from other side scrolling shooters is that its entire world is created by clay. Anthony Flack, the game’s creator, painstakingly made every single element from a single lump of clay and photographed them with a digital camera. No wonder it is one of the most unique looking games out for the iPhone.

Antimatter – A Big Bang for the iPhone?

Pangea Software is certainly no stranger to the iPhone gaming scene, with 6 games already available at the App Store. With the successful release of Enigmo under their belt, Pangea has once again released another physics based game in Antimatter. Unlike Enigmo though, Antimatter is a unique arcade game that resembles part pinball and part Geometry Wars. Rather than shooting everything up in sight, you must guide a streak of bright orange antimatter particles with your finger. Floating all around are ‘Cosmic Strings’ that light up the screen like a constellation map. With this antimatter, your job is to change the cosmic strings from a state of blue to a neon like orange by colliding the two together. Doing so will also add time to the clock. All the strings must turn orange before the timer runs out or else its game over.
