Backflip Studios has had a number of interesting properties over the years, but for me the most endearing title in their collection has to be NinJump. The game took the infinite runner and turned it on its side as well as introducing the concept of defeating 3 similar enemies in order to temporarily gain a power related to that enemy. The ninja’s back, though this time he’s headed to the rooftops in what feels just slightly like a more traditional infinite runner. That doesn’t make it any less addictive, though, and I fear it might suffer the same fate as the original: removal from my device so I can actually find the time for something else.
I couldn’t have said it better. ‘We want gold’, a saying not made famous by New Order’s Football World Cup song. While we at TMA can rest assured that England won’t win any time soon, we cannot predict who will take top spot at the App Store. Last time we gave enough of a hoot, it was iDracula sporting its silver guns and swords looking down on the world from the Top Paid App position. This time, Paper Toss is the Top Free App and has been since the 13th! That is five full days atop the world. Will it become a record? Will you create a record? You can – I can’t – I really suck at this game.

At first glance this game has the simplistic feel and look that I tend to enjoy in iDecive games. in fact, this one particularly reminded me of Doodle Jump and Crayon Physics, both of which are incredibly fun and intuitive games. With high hopes, I fired this app up and boy was I disappointed. The cannon was loaded with a ball of potential, its aim perfect, and its fuse lit… but there was no boom. The cannoneer misfired with Ragdoll Blaster.
