Taptaptop Ultimate is certainly a game you wouldn’t have seen at the App Store a few months ago. With Apple eventually loosening its grip on apps that have ‘limited utility’ and those that were previously deemed too violent, games like Amateur Surgeon have paved the way for some blood n’ gore on the iPhone/iPod Touch.

In keeping up with my last review of iPhone games that are intended for ‘all age groups’, we’ll be taking a look a cartoonishly designed title called Abby Crabby. Developed by Steamboat Mountain Designs, Abby Crabby takes you deep underwater, where you play as Abby the Crab and your sole mission is to protect baby crabs from falling debris and trash.
Sneezies is perhaps one of the more adorably addictive games I have come across on the iPhone/iPod Touch. Developed by Antair Corporation, Sneezies is a unique title that can truly be enjoyed by all age groups. The premise of the game is very simple, yet highly effective nonetheless. You are presented with ‘Sneezies’ that are trapped in floating bubbles and your job is to free them by making them sneeze. In doing so, you will also create massive chain reactions of bubbles bursting that are accompanied by some sweet visuals and cute sound effects.
On the Rocks Productions has dropped by TouchMyApps and given us an exclusive Sneak Preview of Tiltafun, a soon to be released tilt controlled game for the iPhone/iPod Touch. On the Rocks maybe a new developer for the iPhone, but they certainly have some big plans for the App Store, including developing a platform game for the animated Feature ‘Thor‘. Tiltafun, to be released on Jan 20th, puts you in the role of a cute candy munching critter where you will have to collect sweets while avoiding obstacles. Aspects of the game kind of reminds me of the popular title Labyrinth, but with a vibrant and fun twist.
Bootant.com has quickly become a one of the more well known developers at the App Store amongst iPhone/iPod Touch gamers. With popular and generally well received games such as BiiPlane, BiiBall, Beecells and BlocksClassic under their belt, Bootant is at it once again with the release of Crazy Tanks, another tilt controlled arcade game.
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.
ngmoco:) has quickly become a developer many are keeping a close eye on for the iPhone. While they may not have released a bundle of games thus far, the ones that ngmoco have are both fun and unique in their own way (Topple, Dr. Awesome). With the recent release of Dropship, ngmoco has outdone themselves this time and quite possibly have put together the ultimate Arcade game that is as addictive as it is impressive.
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.
ngmoco’s other highly anticipated title Dropship (the other being Rolando) is now finally out for the iPhone. Fans of action packed arcade games will definitely love this title. I can already say that its become one of my favorite games from the App Store after just an hour of play. The controls are fabulous and flying your Dropship is highly addictive and fun.
