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 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.
With the apparent death of the floppy drive in the mid-1990s, there were a number of replacement technologies that competed for the title as heir-apparent. These included:
** ZIP Drive, a magnetic drive that held 100MB in the beginning and grew to 250MB;
** Magneto Optical Drive, a rewritable optical disk that held 128MB to about 2.3GB for the 3.5” version whilst the bigger 5.25” version held Continue reading…
In keeping up with my last review of iPhone games that are intended for ‘all age groups’, we’ll be taking a look a cartoonishly designed title called Abby Crabby. Developed by Steamboat Mountain Designs, Abby Crabby takes you deep underwater, where you play as Abby the Crab and your sole mission is to protect baby crabs from falling debris and trash.
Sneezies is perhaps one of the more adorably addictive games I have come across on the iPhone/iPod Touch. Developed by Antair Corporation, Sneezies is a unique title that can truly be enjoyed by all age groups. The premise of the game is very simple, yet highly effective nonetheless. You are presented with ‘Sneezies’ that are trapped in floating bubbles and your job is to free them by making them sneeze. In doing so, you will also create massive chain reactions of bubbles bursting that are accompanied by some sweet visuals and cute sound effects.
When I heard about Wings 2: Flight Simulator Experience and saw some of the screenshots on iTunes, I had high expectations; the graphics were amazing!! It was like the screenshots were taken from a PSP or a PS2 even; just by showing me the graphics on a webpage it could never convince me that Wings 2 was a mobile phone grade application. I then immediately wanted to test it out, to see how great the program was.
400 Years Early
Today, I am back on the subject of useless apps. To set the stage, please try to imagine the TV show Star Trek or ST: The Next Generation. Warp speed, aliens, holodecs and world peace; It represented a universe where anything was possible. Today, I want to make a tardy congratulation to our world. Hooray! We have surpassed the world of Star Trek and it is not yet the 10th of January, 2009.
