GL Golf Deluxe in Review – Ugly, But Oh So Sweet + 2 Promo Codes

clgolf1GL Golf is like the first version of the hummer. It is boxy, obtrusive, and downright ugly. But like the car, it is one heck of a ride. Seriously, if you are like me and hate watching and playing golf in real life but thrill at the chance of virtually driving 300 yards off the tee, then this is your best bet (as of yet) on your iDevice.

Sentinel in Review – TD goes Sci-Fi!

One of the things I love about the app store is the sheer amount of choice.  Don’t get me wrong, some days I hate it as well also for that very same reason.  But, when you like a specific genre, such as TD games for example, it’s a nice place to be able to visit. Sentinel, by Origin8 is the latest addition to the TD bunch.  I won’t go into explaining TD games as it has already been done here at Touchmyapps in several reviews, but Sentinel brings in an element of science fiction and nice looking graphics which does add a fresh vibe.

Dungeon & Hero in Review – Almost but not Quite

dungeonhero11RPGs have alway been a staple of the gaming environment. From the Final Fantasies and Dragon Quests to games such as Betrayal at Krondor and the newer Fable. These have helped in the satiation of the hack-n-slash, monster killing, hero building desires that permeate all virile men. The AppStore’s RPG library, while meager, is starting to fill out in the genre’s various forms. Dungeon & Hero, to this extent, stands as one of the few Diablo-esque games developers have yet to offer. Despite this link to the legendary game, Dungeon & Hero’s qualities does give it its own taste and flavor.

Pocket God in Review – A very good source of laughter… especially during these times…

pocketgod1I was browsing the iTunes App Store one day, and I suddenly came across this app; I read the description in iTunes and I was very intrigued by the purpose of Pocket God. I initially though that this game is very similar to The Sims or others in the genre, but it turns out to be an entirely different type of game. Whatever caused me to download this game I have no regret in doing so.

Mophie Juice Pack 3G in Review – Double your iPhone fun

juicepack3g_main1

One of the biggest gripes with the iPhone 3G (aside from the lack of native copy & paste and running apps in the background) is its relatively poor battery life. Hardcore users who surf, make calls, check emails, listen to music and play one or more of the zillion app store games can hardly get through a day without first worrying about how much “juice” is left on the phone. It’s no wonder then that Mophie, one of the leaders in iPhone/iPod accessories, has stepped up to the plate with the very popular Juice Pack 3G.

Zen Bound in Review – Freakin’ AmaZEN! + 1 Promo Code!

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!!!

Skybound in Review – Bouncing High into the Sky

skybound_pic1Practically everyone’s watched a bouncing ball as it jumped horizontally across the floor before inevitably coming to a rolling stop. But what happens when you give that ball the chance to fly high above the tallest buildings, past the blue skies, and into space and beyond? Skybound gives you the opportunity to investigate the air up there in a fun and challenging way.

ATC 4.0 in Review – You Gotta Keep’em Separated

atc40_3

Ever wondered what the most stressful job in the world feels like? ATC 4.0 introduces iPhone gamers to the world of Air Traffic Control. The role of a enroute air traffic controller consists of sitting in dark radar rooms monitoring the flow of traffic, they issue instructions to follow headings, warn pilots of conflicting traffic, and clear aircraft for arrivals and departures. At times, it may feel like a video game….or does it?

Football doesn’t only happen to be the biggest sport the world over, it happens to be the 3rd largest religion and 2nd most powerful political movement that unites millions of people fans around this globe. However, it has not really made a big impact on the iPhone, yet.  Shane McCafferty is hoping to change than and has brought the Premier League to our hands and what more would we really want?

I downloaded all four of the originally released teams:  Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester Utd and Arsenal but spent meaningful time only with Liverpool.
