Egg Vs. Chicken in Review – Something Fowl Is Afoot

Why did the chicken cross the road?  If you’re doing your job right, you shouldn’t have to answer that question. Egg vs. Chicken is an interesting mash up of match 3 and tower defense that actually manages to blend the two genres fairly seamlessly.  The cartoon quality visuals and 70s action TV show theme music make for a wacky atmosphere that serves a game like this well.  I just wouldn’t expect too much depth from the game beyond trying to maximize your score via combos.

10 New App Store Games To Watch [May 9 - 15]

This week’s selections sound like they were pulled straight from the “popular kids” section of gaming.  You have a brand new farming sim (at least to the iOS platform) called Green Farm that comes to you courtesy of Gameloft.  On the other hand, if tower defense games are your thing you have your choice of Army Of Darkness Defense or Stop The Knights, both of which sound like they take a bit darker but more comical route to the genre.  Finally you have something completely different – at least given the developer – in the form of a physics puzzler called Bug Chucker (TMA Review) from Cyan Worlds, the creators of such treasures as Myst and Riven.

10 New App Store Games To Watch [April 25 - May 1]

This week’s lineup includes ball rolling bliss, the next World Of Warcraft (maybe), and a little bit of controversy.  First up is Gears (TMA Review), the game that has redefined what users will expect from ball rolling games.  If you catch it while it’s still on sale for 99 cents you’ll be getting a great deal, but if not it’s still worth the asking price.  For those of you waiting on a true 3D fantasy MMORPG, the wait might finally be over.  Gameloft has released Order & Chaos Online, and from the screen shots and description it looks like they’ve made every attempt at bringing World Of Warcraft home to your iOS device.  If you prefer to live on the edge there’s Unpleasant Horse and Snuggle Truck, a couple of games that tangled with Apple because their original submitted content didn’t quite sit with the overlords of “good judgment”.  They’re available now, however, so hopefully the content didn’t veere to much from what was originally intended (though it’s pretty safe to say in one case it did).

Evil Angry Planet in Review – That’s what Greenpeace has been warning us all along…

For years and years various conspiracy theorists have been theorizing about Earth having a soul, or Gaia as it is sometimes called. This soul, encompassing all life on the planet, is thought to be dormant, waking up only on extreme occasions to protect Earth from danger. It turns out they were not talking exactly about Earth. In the near future, mankind spreads across the nearby cosmos and finds a planet with a unique gas, allowing it to reach new heights in science and production. But the Evil Angry Planet is definitely not too happy about this.
