Taptaptop Ultimate is certainly a game you wouldn’t have seen at the App Store a few months ago. With Apple eventually loosening its grip on apps that have ‘limited utility’ and those that were previously deemed too violent, games like Amateur Surgeon have paved the way for some blood n’ gore on the iPhone/iPod Touch.

Earlier this week, I wrote about Paper Pilot, a game that brought back lots of good childhood memories. Well Freeverse has done it again for me with the release of SlotZ Racer, a slot car racing game for the iPhone/iPod Touch. I had a chance to test drive SlotZ and I am definitely having fun with this game. With essentially one button to play the game (hold to accelerate and release to slow down), SlotZ is easy to pick up and play and can even be enjoyed by up to 4 players using the same device.
As a typical guy, I never compare prices or haggle/ bargain/ negotiate when I buy stuff, unless it’s a big purchase like a big-screen TV, computer or whatever. I never shop around comparing how much brand A of sugar is to brand B. So when I got this app, I thought that I will have no use for it. However, people around me thought otherwise…
Excite Bike, California Games, Skate or Die… Bike or Die
Bike or Die 2.
It has been a long time coming but extreme bicycling from the comfort of your living room sofa or bus seat has landed at an iPhone near you. Bike or Die 2 is the follow up to Bike or Die for Palm OS that should doubtless be called, ‘Bike and Die’. It is 2500 levels of biking death that stretches the genre of physics simulators to new and bloody lengths.
The slideshow function found in the stock Photos app on the iPhone/iPod Touch is very basic indeed. With only several transition types and a limited amount of options to choose from, users maybe left wanting more. Enter Photo Show, a fully featured and easy to use slideshow maker that will give you more control and the ability to add that personal touch to all your photos.
The name Bloomberg is quite synonymous with the world of business and financial news. It also is a leader in providing timely market data and technology (its Bloomberg terminals are quite sweet). So it makes quite a lot of sense for this titan to have one of the best finance apps on the Iphone.
Ian Marsh, the brains behind the popular App Store title Hanoi Plus and the highly enjoyable Scoops, has taken on the Word Game genre with the release of the very cool and fun Textropolis. Unlike the majority of Word titles that lack a theme or some much needed flavor, Textropolis delivers by taking you around the world and have you finding hidden words in each city as you progress.
I remember spending heaps of time as a kid playing with and testing out all kinds of paper airplanes, trying to make them glide further and faster. While that hobby is long gone, Clever Coding has revived those fun memories with their release of the beautiful 3D flyer Paper Pilot. Developed using the powerful iPhone game engine Unity, Paper Pilot will have you flying a paper airplane through gorgeously rendered 3D environments via the accelerometer and collecting floating paperclips in the least amount of time possible.
