Zombieville USA chomps into App Store, $2.99 + Impressions

zombieville_usa2Zombie fans rejoice. Mika Mobile’s first App Store release will have you roasting, maiming, beheading and blowing up zombies in this uniquely animated (reminiscent of Alien Hominid) zombie game.

When your town is overrun by the walking dead, there’s only one thing left to do – go through their pockets and look for loose change! As the lone survivor of a zombie apocalypse, it’s up to you to battle legions of the undead in a never ending fight for survival! How long can you hold out? Scrounge for cash and ammunition, and buy up to 15 upgradeable weapons as your inevitable doom closes in around you…

Zombieville USA is a simple to play yet hard to master survival “horror”, where there’s more to player strategy than meets the eye. Unlike dozens of other arcade zombie titles, careful resource management does play a vital role in your quest to fend off hungry zombies.

WeDict Pro in Review – No More Freebies

wedictpro1There was once a time when WeDict was a half-decent free dictionary. It sufficed for the basic needs of many people who deemed literacy a high priority in their lives. Between that time and now, the freebie faded away and WeDict Pro, the full paid version, remained. While more robust in functions and features than its free predecessor, does WeDict Pro have enough to justify its (as many would consider) hefty price?

Escape from City 17: Toronto’s other Claim to Fame

Toronto may be Canada’s most bustling city and her economic heart, but when taken in a global context, it is trite.  New York is bigger and louder, London is more expensive and Montreal clings to chic traditions.  Until the release of 7Cities by Neptune Studios, Toronto had little to report itself by on a global scale.  This morning, a cricked neck woke me early and I was greeted with a youtube video:  Escape from City 17 by Purchase Brothers.  I have never played HalfLife but many times have watched over Louis’s shoulder as he hammered crab-headed aliens with a crowbar and gained another freakish personality – I was in deep.

iPhone shrinkage? 99 dollar iPhone; Hi-res iPhone

Matte Back for the next iPhone?

What never stops in this constantly spinning world of ours?  You would be right if you guessed the Earth – as it always spins, rotates and is doing a crazy somersault around the Milky Way.  Other than the Earth however is another constantly moving and evolving ecosystem:  electronics.  Only 200 years ago, the first computer ‘programmes’ were being written by a famous poet‘s only non-bastard child, Ada Lovelace.  Back then, computers did not even run on electricity and eagre programmers had to actually study or be rich and educated.  Times have changed.  

99$ iPhone – Just Nickels and Dimes this time

Soon possibly, you will be able to pocket the iPhone for a mere 99 bones.  What will be different?  An article by MSNBC claims that a 99$ iPhone will be hitting shelves or presentation booths around June.  That is only 4 months away and while we must be excited, let’s discuss the issues surrounding the launch of a ‘cheap’ iPhone.  

In case you are wondering, the rumoured 99 Dollar iPhone turns out to be none other than the Previous-Generation iPhone 3G 8GB. Check out the WWDC announcement

App Update: Abby Crabby

abbycrabby81

Don't eva mess with a crab carrying a dynamite and broken bottle!

Steamboat Mountain Designs has recently released a v1.1 update to Abby Crabby, a visually appealing game I had previously reviewed here at TouchMyApps. While I did enjoy the game with its cute graphics and fun gameplay, I found that the tilt controls were not very responsive and the lack of difficulty settings didn’t help the matter. After hearing some of these concerns, Jeff Mathews tweaked Abby Crabby for a much more enjoyable crabby experience.
