BubbleHead debuts at App Store, $2.99

bubblehead7Pavel Kozarek of CrowdCafe has dropped by TMA to let us know that BubbleHead has landed at the App Store today. This stylishly designed game has elements of Tiltafun and racing wrapped up in one neat package. Players will navigate through 5 unique worlds all with its own theme (Computer, Medical, Forrest, Sports and Fast Food Worlds), tilting and racing Bubblehead through hand drawn obstacles. The controls actually work like a charm, as you dodge left/right by tilting the device and tapping the screen will put the brakes on the green and blue fella (there’s a feeling of gravity at work here as BubbleHead will ‘drop’ once you hit the screen). This is a game worth checking out, with great visuals and even a random mode where you compete  for high score with players from around the world. More screenshots and a video after the break.

RjDj Shake in Review – Like A Polaroid Picture + 1 Promo Code Giveaway

rjdjshake11Is it a game? Is it a toy? Is it even worth it? Is there a point to it? The website itself asks, “What the heck is RjDj?” This question is one that is difficult to answer, but necessary in understanding just what Reality Jockey Ltd. is seeking to achieve. While RjDj Shake may seek for high and lofty goals, it unfortunately fails to rise above the level of novelty.

Smack Boxing Lite Hits the App Store

smackboxing1Full Control ApS, the devs behind the iPhone’s first boxing game has released a ‘lite’ version of the light hearted and Punch Out like Smack Boxing. This free offering also coincides with the recent upgrade of the game to version 2.0, where a new career mode and a completely rewritten A.I awaits all challengers. Judging from the lite version, gameplay is rather intuitive, as you tilt left and right to move your boxer. Using the touch controls you, you tap the screen to jab, swipe left/right for hooks and upwards for an uppercut. There are also touch screen controls, where you simply tap the labeled buttons for the corresponding punches. If you enjoy boxing titles, try out the lite version here first. There’s a video of the game in action after the jump.

Remote in Review – A Perfect Extension to iTunes/ Apple TV

remote1Initially when Apple came out with its first iPhone/ iPod Touch app on the App Store, the Remote app, I just wasn’t interested in installing it, even though it was free. This was because whenever I was listening to music, I would be within reach of my computer, and therefore really don’t need the redundant control on my iPhone. However, when I recently bought an Apple TV to put next to my TV, I decided to give the application a go.

Take A Note in Review – One Note to bind them all

takeanote1If you’re like me and always on the lookout for new and worthwhile productivity apps, there’s a chance you may have already come across apps developed by Readdle. Among them are ReaddleDocs, One Disk and Write A Note. Take A Note is Readdle’s fully featured Note app that offers users four note types and even allows for easy transferring of notes to and from any Mac or PC. Not only is it loaded with options, its interface is also one of the best I have seen amongst memo/note apps.

SlotZ Racer in Review – One Button of Pure Unadulterated Fun!!

slotz1Racing games.  It feels like I’ve played them since the beginning of time.  I remember playing Turbo on my ColecoVision (I know… what the heck is/was a ColecoVision?).  I played Pole Position and OutRun in the arcades, and the updated racers from Need for Speed, Forza to Burnout.  I don’t want to toot my own horn (no pun intended) but I’m pretty good at them…

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!
