Thanks to Ricardo Quesada, developer of Sapus Tongue, for dropping by and notifiying me about his iPhone game. Sapus Tongue takes the iPhone and turns it into a mini-Wii! The object of the game is to launch one of two game characters as far as possible. They are Sapus, the super-hero toad and Monus, the anti-hero monkey. Sapus uses his tongue as a launching pivot, and Monus uses his tail.
Word games are extemely popular in the App Store. With easily over a hundred such titles available on the iPhone, choosing one that stands out can be a hit and miss process. Personally, I love word games for the simple fact that it can be both entertaining and educating at the same time. I have discovered words I had not previously known by simply making guess attempts. Now that’s time well spent! So how does Worder stack up with the rest of the competition?
The Tower Defense genre has been picking up steam in the last several years. Desktop Tower Defense, an internet flash game released in 2007, was played almost 16 million times after only four months of release. A simple search on google will yield countless websites devoted to the genre. It was only a matter of time before developers started pumping out such games on the iPhone.
