playtoniq, the folks behind the well received “Aqua” Sports series (Aqua Hoops /Aqua Punt), has dropped by TouchMyApps to let us know about their brand new game Just Fillin’. Set to be released tomorrow (Jan 28th), Just Fillin’ takes gameplay elements of the classic Qix and adds its own unique twist. Having spent time testing out the game, I must say it got me hooked with its simple but addictive gameplay.
Being from New Jersey, there’s something about bowling that stirs the soul. The sights, the smells, the horrifically colored shoes… they all appeal to he suburban part of my heart. The App Store has given us a few good games that seek to emulate this experience. They seek to translate the feel of the ‘lanes’ to a mobile experience. Downhill Bowling, though, strives for something far grander.
Personally, I haven’t come across that many sniper games for the iPhone. The one or two that I have were underwhelming to say the least. That’s why when I first saw i Sniper, I had fairly high expectations after seeing some rather nice looking screen shots of the game. Developed by MASQ Interactive, i Sniper will take you through 6 missions around the world, with features like ‘concentration’ to steady your shot and tilt controls to aim through your scope.
There is a word I rarely use when reviewing a game: exceptional. Yet, Blue Attack! rightly deserves this description. John Kooistra has managed to create a game that reaches a level of polish, gameplay, and affordability that sets it apart from most others in the SHMUP (Shoot ‘em up) genre and within the landfill that is the App Store. This is one game that definitely rises above the rest.
What can I really say about TanZen, other than this is a perfect puzzle game for the iPhone and iPod Touch. There is a lite version for you try out, but beware, if you’re going to try the lite version, chances are you’re going to upgrade to the full version.
Word games, we’ve all played them. Crossword puzzles, Scrabble, Boggle etc etc. I’ve honestly never been a huge fan of these type of games, but for some reason, I really enjoy them on my Touch. Either I’m getting wiser with age, or these games translate beautifully on this device. Maybe it’s both…
Are you one to make use of your iPhone camera often and wish there was an easier way to print these photos without resorting to first uploading and opening all kinds of photo editing programs on your computer? If so, then you should definitely check out Air Photo Wifi Printing. This app basically cuts out the middleman and allows you to choose which photo to print right from your iPhone’s camera roll. I had a chance to test it out and found it to work just as advertised on both my Macbook and PC.
Not long ago, TouchMyApps gave you an exclusive first look at Tiltafun, an adorable looking tilt controlled game developed by On the Rocks. Well the game has finally arrived at the App Store and being their first app release for the iPhone/iPod Touch, On the Rocks has come through with a simple yet fun and well designed game in Tiltafun.
I was a little sceptical when this category of apps debuted on the iPhone/ iPod Touch platform. The reason was because I have access to my computer every day, and when I know I have taken photos with my device, I’ll immediately sync them back with iPhoto. So I was thinking “why do photo editing on the phone when I have a 20” screen at home and iPhoto?” Well, apparently, some people don’t have access to a computer on a daily basis, or that they are always on the road, or just wish to modify the photo with friends on the spot. Whatever the reason, I decided to take a look at Photogene…
