clanbadgetma_2imangi_clan

Clan Wars is baaaack baby! Starting today, June 1st, the next Clan Wars competition will begin once again. For those who followed our last clan wars, you may recall that TouchMyApps kicked some serious ‘apps’ the final two weeks and even laid claim to some wickedly sweet Freeverse PC/Mac prizes (valued up to $100) as Clan winners. For those not familiar with Clan Wars, 5 iPhone sites recruit clan members and go head to head for weekly prizes. This time round, instead of tossing balls, the featured game will be Keith Shepherd’s popular and well received word game, Imangi. The competition will last 4 weeks, with Keith setting up an “easy” challenge board for the first week and players will see the game get progressively more difficult as the weeks go by.

So are you ready to show your favorite iPhone blog some love once again? Well then, what are you waiting for? Check out all the juicy details on how you can join the TouchMyApps Clan and secure those weekly prizes after the jump!

Wordplay in Review – The Fast and Furious (Word Edition)

wordplay1

Word games are one of my favorite genres to play on the iPhone. They can be enjoyed minutes at a time and you get to learn new words along the way. That’s why when I came across Wordplay, a new word puzzler by Pixelchemy, I was quite anxious to give it a test drive.  Once I started learning the ins and outs and actually playing the game, I found elements of its gameplay and design to be inspired by the likes of  Scrabble and Trism, but only much faster. In fact, Wordplay is probably one of the fastest paced and action packed word game I have played in a long time.
