exzeus-reviewimg_0005exzeus-reviewimg_0004

HyperDevbox Japan smash through the boundaries of many gamer’s wildest dreams with ExZeus. Not only do they bring to the iDevice giant robots and big guns, but ExZeus, a coinop arcade game now fits into the greasy pockets of iPhone and iPod Touch gamers everywhere.

Hyperdevbox sport an impressive catalogue of games for PS2, Wii and xBox 360 as well as with the debut of ExZeus, an upcoming ports section for handheld gaming machines. ExZeus is a great achievement as a first handheld port and I hope will is indicative of the quality of games that are in the production queue. Though excellent, ExZeus is hampered not by its  content but by hardware limitations in the iDevice.

scramble5If you’re already on Facebook AND love word games, then you’ve probably heard of and even played Scramble, one of the most popular and addictive word titles on the social networking site. Developed by Zynga, who is also responsible the slew of Live Poker titles at the App Store, they now bring you Scramble Live for your iPhone/iPod Touch.

Big Deuce in Review – Get Your Mind Out of the Gutter

bigdeuce1Big 2, Thirteen, Cho Dai Dee, Chinese Poker (mistakenly), Big Deuce… there are so many names for one game, and what a game it is. If you’ve never played this game before, I do suggest gathering three friends, going online, finding the rules, and playing this bad boy. It’s just that good. For those who don’t have the fortune of company, there is Big Deuce by MotionObj.

supermarketmania5

Your local time management expert, Dave P. reporting for duty! You guessed it, I’m hard at work (or hardly working, depending on how you look at it) playing another time management game. Boy, I’m getting good at these!

For all those that follow my reviews religiously (big shout out to my wife), you’ll know that I’ve already reviewed a few time management games. The current game in review is Supermarket Mania by G5

Arcade Hoops Basketball in Review – Have fun with lotsa balls

arcadebasketball1I love balls…big red ones…the kind you dribble and shoot through hoops that is. Basketball has always been a favorite sport of mine, perhaps because I had a picture perfect jump shot like Mikail Jurdan, or not. For those who are vertically challenged or can’t shoot worth a lick (on standard sized baskets), they always have arcade basketball to fall back on to relive their favorite Kobe moments. Thanks to Skyworks, the developers behind other App Store offerings in Arcade Bowling, QB Pass Attack Football and X’s and O’s Football, this awesome arcade past-time has been miniaturized on to the iPhone.

GL Golf Deluxe in Review – Ugly, But Oh So Sweet + 2 Promo Codes

clgolf1GL Golf is like the first version of the hummer. It is boxy, obtrusive, and downright ugly. But like the car, it is one heck of a ride. Seriously, if you are like me and hate watching and playing golf in real life but thrill at the chance of virtually driving 300 yards off the tee, then this is your best bet (as of yet) on your iDevice.

Sentinel in Review – TD goes Sci-Fi!

One of the things I love about the app store is the sheer amount of choice.  Don’t get me wrong, some days I hate it as well also for that very same reason.  But, when you like a specific genre, such as TD games for example, it’s a nice place to be able to visit. Sentinel, by Origin8 is the latest addition to the TD bunch.  I won’t go into explaining TD games as it has already been done here at Touchmyapps in several reviews, but Sentinel brings in an element of science fiction and nice looking graphics which does add a fresh vibe.

Dungeon & Hero in Review – Almost but not Quite

dungeonhero11RPGs have alway been a staple of the gaming environment. From the Final Fantasies and Dragon Quests to games such as Betrayal at Krondor and the newer Fable. These have helped in the satiation of the hack-n-slash, monster killing, hero building desires that permeate all virile men. The AppStore’s RPG library, while meager, is starting to fill out in the genre’s various forms. Dungeon & Hero, to this extent, stands as one of the few Diablo-esque games developers have yet to offer. Despite this link to the legendary game, Dungeon & Hero’s qualities does give it its own taste and flavor.

Pocket God in Review – A very good source of laughter… especially during these times…

pocketgod1I was browsing the iTunes App Store one day, and I suddenly came across this app; I read the description in iTunes and I was very intrigued by the purpose of Pocket God. I initially though that this game is very similar to The Sims or others in the genre, but it turns out to be an entirely different type of game. Whatever caused me to download this game I have no regret in doing so.

Zen Bound in Review – Freakin’ AmaZEN! + 1 Promo Code!

zenbound1zenbound2

This may be my last review here at TouchMyApps.  I don’t know if I need to play any other game again.  Seriously, I don’t think I’ve ever been able to write as simple a review as this.  Basically, all I’m going to tell you is that you must get this game, you need this game, there is no excuse to not get this game.  It is BY FAR the best game on the iDevice to date.  No questions in my humble opinion, and no competition.  It may in fact be one of the best games I have ever played!!!
