And because too few would want a curling game for the iDevice, we are left with science fiction; and for some reason -perhaps the ambient music, perhaps the glowing ‘pucks’- this game warps in to that genre while maintaining an iota or two of fun.

I suppose Andy Adventure is what you might expect if you were to cross Topple with Indiana Jones. You play a brave adventurer traveling the world, collecting treasure and trying to defeat the bad guys. The game actually has a lot of potential, but sluggish performance and the need to repeated play a high percentage of the levels before moving on tend to bog down the excitement. Let’s see if this adventure is for you or not.
One my favourite sports is billiards. I love both the American pool (mostly 8-ball) and the more difficult Russian variant, pyramid. I even like watching snooker, though I can’t even begin to understand it. Now what would happen if the red and yellow balls in, say, your average 8-ball game decided to go all out and start a war? Well, now you can find out!
Despite pushing an App Store page comprised 80% of thinly veiled shills who just ‘love’ this game, Flying Pigs has a few very redeeming qualities. The first? You get to fly a saucer as in ‘Alien effin’ saucer’! The second is that Sobits have dredged up a bit of humour from the age-old idiom, ‘when pigs fly’. Believe it or not, this idea hasn’t been done in the same way before – so strap on your tin-foil helmets, grab some bacon, and let’s get gamin’…
Mr. Bounce is a nice little game from developer Spaces of Play. Similar to Breakout, you bounce a projectile off parts of a destructible field in order to clear the level. Mr. Bounce is yet another example of how a simple game can be done to good effect.

Ocarina no more: Killerina. I am T-pain no more: I Kill T-Pain. And Leaf Trombone? Liver Trombone! This Halloween, Smule have been possessed by the horrible deamons behind the horrid creeper, Attack of the Zombie Bikini Babes from Outer Space.

At this point, maybe it doesn’t matter because with the horrible holiday on its way, there is just time enough to grab yer guns… er, yer slingshots and blast them baddies who creep out from the graves.
