Drop7 in Review – Drop it like its hot…

drop7_5It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that puzzle games are one of the most popular genres at the App Store. A quick glance at iTunes will reveal 102 pages (and growing) of such games. While this maybe the case,  it’s a safe bet to say that the majority of new puzzle releases are either complete knock offs of previous efforts or are simply uninspired. Drop7, on the other hand, isn’t one of these games. Area/Code’s relatively obscure drop ‘em and match ‘em puzzler is without a doubt an original “Tetris meets Sudoku” game that shouldn’t be missed by fans of the genre.

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!!!

Wooden Labyrinth 3D Review – Steady Hands, Steady Heart + 1 Promo Code

woodenlabyrinth1I am a man of many moods. This is why I love the AppStore. I can find Apps that fit my current state of mind. One mood that has been seeing much rotation in my life is that of quietness. As I get older, I tend to find time to draw myself away from the fast paced, extreme themed, action oriented options that are out there and seek for simplicity and solitude. Wooden Labyrinth 3D goes a long way in enhancing those peaceful times.

Glyphic Entertainment, LLC have added a unique arcade puzzler to the App Store with Geometrix:  Flatland Unbound.  Fast and furious, it is a great addition to the catalogue of games that Chillingo have brought to the App Store.  For fans of Edwin A. Abbott’s novel, this game gains instant wuffie but fails when compared to the seminal literature.

Alien Blobs in Review – A new “spin” on the match 3 genre?

alienblobs1Yes, here at Touchmyapps, we are dedicated to bring you as many reviews as we can.  If it means I have to sacrifice myself and try every match 3 game, I will….for you! So, without further ado, let’s review another match 3 style game.

Right off the bat, this isn’t your mother (or father’s) match style game.  We’re not shooting across, we’re not shooting up, we’re not even shooting downwards.  We’re now tied on a string going around in circles matching the colored “blobs”.  I have to admit that it took me a few games to wrap my head around this simple change to the genre, but once I got used to it, I really enjoyed it.  This brought in a sense of excitement to the genre that I haven’t felt in a long time.  It almost (dare I say it?) felt like an action game…

Tangrams – The Ancient Chinese Logic Puzzles Come to the iPhone and iPod Touch! But which is “better”?

tangrampro10First, why don’t I explain what exactly a Tangram puzzle is.  In a Tangram puzzle, you have a shape.  This shape is actually comprised of a group of other shapes.  In Tangram, you have seven pieces:  Two large triangles, two small triangles, one medium triangle, a square, and a strange slanted rectangle piece.  The key is to place and rotate these seven pieces until they form the shape that you’re looking for.  So, now that you’re in the loop, let’s get to the review!
