Hexile in Review- A Fresh New Puzzler for the iPhone

hexile1Fusion Development Group has recently released a unique puzzle/strategy game that could very well be the first of its kind at the App Store. Hexile is a fast paced “High-Low” tile-tapping game that will have you racing the clock and clearing the board of all stones. The premise of the game is simple: Tap the stone tiles in ascending or decending order to remove them from the screen before time runs out. While this may sound easy, Hexile is in fact a well designed game that will challenge all takers, especially as the game progresses.

FindIT in Review – Find and Go Seek for iPhone

game-findit-title-20090102

Hiding away among the New section in the App Store is Granet Societe Cooperativa’s FindIT, an application which flaunts photographic faults in a spot the difference game. It makes no attempt however, to conceal its certain strengths: great photography, a wide selection of photos and a unique zooming system that will keep users engaged for hours in intricate gameplay.

Memo Pad in Review – Note Pad all Dressed Up

memo-pad2The Notes app on the iPhone/iPod Touch leaves much to be desired. Sure it will allow you to type and store some notes, but beyond that, features on it are as slim as Apple’s own Macbook Air. For this reason, the App Store is littered with apps that attempt to improve on the functionality of Notes. Memo Pad by SoftwareCraftsman is one of these apps. While it is not a full blown word processing kind of app, it is as its name implies a Note Pad dressed with lots of useful and handy features.

The Creeps! – Free App Giveaway! (Closed)

thecreeps1

Our first app giveaway for the New Year is the recently released tower defense game called The Creeps!. It has quickly become one of my favorite defense games available at the App Store. The graphics and artwork are very well done and it even implements a unique tilt control feature for one of its towers (first of its kind for the genre). The game is totally fun and even inexperienced tower defense players can jump right in.

To win one of three copies, submit a comment and let us know what categories of apps you would like to see TouchMyApps cover more of in 2009. Winners will be selected randomly and the contest will close Jan 3nd 2009 @ 8pm EST. Good Luck!

Crayon Physics Deluxe now Available

crayon_physics1Hudson has just released Crayon Physics Deluxe at the App Store. Those familiar with the popular title Touch Physics should feel right at home with this well designed puzzler. While I haven’t had the chance to explore the entire game, it seems to be well polished and challenging. One thing I did notice right away is that you are able to draw more complex shapes than in Touch Physics. Whatever it is you draw will come to life on screen. Very cool indeed. There are currently 50 levels as well as a level editor, a feature that will surely add loads of replay value. More screen shots and info after the jump.

Wikipedia Mobile in Review – Wikipedia -vs- Wikipedia; Wikipedia wins!!

wikipedia_mobile1

With this review, I’m assuming that people are familiar with Wikipedia, an open sourced encyclopedia that anyone can contribute and review, and that it’s a wonderful source of information. I personally use it to do research on things that I see on Discovery Channel/ National Geographic, to gain a bit more knowledge on things on top of that described on TV, since I always miss bits and pieces due to phone calls, bathroom breaks, etc..

A Look at Hot PopCorn – A Must Have for Movie Junkies

hotpopcorn1

Don’t we all love movies? It seems just about everyone I know with an iPod Touch or iPhone has a Movie app installed to find out show times, new releases, ratings and more. While most of them are free, I have yet to come across one that I would consider a must have. Enter Hot Popcorn, a newly released Movie app by Boctor Design that could very well blow the competition right out of the water. Not only is the interface well designed, it comes loaded with features that even includes purchasing tickets right within the app. Nice.

A Ping Pong Threesome – Rubbers, Bouncing Balls and Fortune Cookies

gamepaddleballhitting20081230

Because I am a fan of the misunderstood sport of table tennis, I scoured the App Store for a good table tennis game. I’ve not found any yet, but the match has just begun. Three apps: Paddle Ball, iPingpong 3D and Zen Table Tennis caught my eye. Balls in hand, I will drive forth a looping comparison. For reference, World Cup Ping Pong has also been recently reviewed here!
