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.

Burning Tires 3D in Review – Yet Another Racer

burningtires1There is little doubt that the iDevice makes a great platform for racers. One can see that by the 5 pages of racing games in the AppStore. With so many to choose from, and with little variety between them, a game has to justify its existence in order to thrive. This is where Burning Tires 3D faces a dilemma. Is it good or innovative enough to warrant a purchase? Unfortunately, unlike Fishlab’s other racing game, Powerboat Challenge 3D, there is little reasons that legitimize this game.

iShoot in Review – Rags to Riches

ishoot1Ethan Nicholas and his game, iShoot, represent the dreams and ambitions of the thousands of independent developers that flock towards the AppStore. He went from obscurity, which lasted for months, to recognition and renown for both his business acumen and for the quality of iShoot. He did so well that at the current time of writing, iShoot has been on the top 100 paid apps list for over a month.

Wedding Dash in Review – Let the honeymoon begin?

weddingdash1I’ve watched my wife play time management games for years now.  I have to be honest that I’ve never really understood the attraction to the genre.  Well, it was time to find out what these types of games are all about, and I now have a new found appreciation for the genre.

What I first found interesting in this game was the strategy element.  I mistakenly thought that this was a game that you just tap aimlessly as quickly as possible to get everything done with in the time limit.  Maybe I’ve played too many shoot ‘em ups…

Alien Blobs in Review – A new “spin” on the match 3 genre?

alienblobs1Yes, here at Touchmyapps, we are dedicated to bring you as many reviews as we can.  If it means I have to sacrifice myself and try every match 3 game, I will….for you! So, without further ado, let’s review another match 3 style game.

Right off the bat, this isn’t your mother (or father’s) match style game.  We’re not shooting across, we’re not shooting up, we’re not even shooting downwards.  We’re now tied on a string going around in circles matching the colored “blobs”.  I have to admit that it took me a few games to wrap my head around this simple change to the genre, but once I got used to it, I really enjoyed it.  This brought in a sense of excitement to the genre that I haven’t felt in a long time.  It almost (dare I say it?) felt like an action game…

Baseball Superstars 2009 in Review – Animelicious + 1 Promo Code Giveaway!

baseballstars1

It is no small statement to say that sports games contribute largely to a console’s success. In Apple’s bid to legitimize their iDevice platform to the same level as their portable competitors, this is one area that is, unfortunately, severely lacking. With less than a handful of fully fleshed out sports games, any addition to the app store is a welcome one and a huge step forward in cementing the iPhone and iTouch as the gaming system it has the potential to be.

SlotZ Racer in Review – One Button of Pure Unadulterated Fun!!

slotz1Racing games.  It feels like I’ve played them since the beginning of time.  I remember playing Turbo on my ColecoVision (I know… what the heck is/was a ColecoVision?).  I played Pole Position and OutRun in the arcades, and the updated racers from Need for Speed, Forza to Burnout.  I don’t want to toot my own horn (no pun intended) but I’m pretty good at them…

Tangrams – The Ancient Chinese Logic Puzzles Come to the iPhone and iPod Touch! But which is “better”?

tangrampro10First, why don’t I explain what exactly a Tangram puzzle is.  In a Tangram puzzle, you have a shape.  This shape is actually comprised of a group of other shapes.  In Tangram, you have seven pieces:  Two large triangles, two small triangles, one medium triangle, a square, and a strange slanted rectangle piece.  The key is to place and rotate these seven pieces until they form the shape that you’re looking for.  So, now that you’re in the loop, let’s get to the review!
