Ian Marsh, the brains behind the popular App Store title Hanoi Plus and the highly enjoyable Scoops, has taken on the Word Game genre with the release of the very cool and fun Textropolis. Unlike the majority of Word titles that lack a theme or some much needed flavor, Textropolis delivers by taking you around the world and have you finding hidden words in each city as you progress.
I remember spending heaps of time as a kid playing with and testing out all kinds of paper airplanes, trying to make them glide further and faster. While that hobby is long gone, Clever Coding has revived those fun memories with their release of the beautiful 3D flyer Paper Pilot. Developed using the powerful iPhone game engine Unity, Paper Pilot will have you flying a paper airplane through gorgeously rendered 3D environments via the accelerometer and collecting floating paperclips in the least amount of time possible.
Com2uS Corp, the developers behind The Chronicles of Inotia: Legend of Feanor and Crazy Hotdogs has released a survival horror title in Trapped: Undead Infection. Playing as a scientist trapped in a bio-research facility, you have no recollection of who you are and what’s happening around you. One thing is for certain: zombies are everywhere and you must defend yourself with an assortment of weapons (stun guns, pistols, shotguns) as well as solve puzzles along the way.

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.
When I heard about Wings 2: Flight Simulator Experience and saw some of the screenshots on iTunes, I had high expectations; the graphics were amazing!! It was like the screenshots were taken from a PSP or a PS2 even; just by showing me the graphics on a webpage it could never convince me that Wings 2 was a mobile phone grade application. I then immediately wanted to test it out, to see how great the program was.
