Matt here, your newest TouchMyApps writer. For my first review (of which there will be many!), I’m reviewing Toy Bot Diaries 3. Having not played Toy Bot Diaries 1 & 2, the series is new to me. If Toy Bot Diaries is new to you, here’s a little back story. In the first Toy Bot Diaries, there is a strange machine which plagues Toy Bot. In Entry 2, Toy Bot climbs out of the sewers and into the skies! In Entry 3, Toy Bot has gone outer space; it’s the next frontier for our little metal friend. He’s off to rescue King Bot from the clutches of the evil War Bot who is bent on destroying the earth!
Take a look at the above list. Are you reminded of those heady days of teenage rebellion? Do you look fondly on cursing, spitting, bleeding from falls, running from the fuzz and beating up roller bladers? If so, then I think that the Swedish Illusion Labs AB have an app that will have you switchstancing down memory lane.
SimCity, one of the most anticipated titles for the iPhone has finally been released by EA today. All SimCity fans should rejoice as this iPhone remake is not some hosed down version of the game. Give EA credit for ensuring that all features we have come to love and expect from a SimCity title are included. I have had a chance to play the game for a bit (went through the tutorials and then some) and I must say that it is rather impressive. There were no noticeable slow downs and it runs surprisingly smoothe. Lots of building structures to choose from and all the view options (pollution, underground, traffic, land value) we are used to are here too. Definitely a must have title for fans of the series.
Strategery is a rather unique take on turn-based strategy games like Risk, one where Global Domination is the goal of the game. To be more precise though, it is essentially an iPhone version of the very popular Online game, Dice Wars. While far from perfect, Strategery is a fast paced game where matches can be finished few minutes at a time and can be quite addictive.
TapJoy have entered what is fast becoming a staple diet in the App Store: Tower Defense games. TapDefense is contending with the likes of the stolid Fieldrunners and the newer genre oriented, Zombie Attack!; but unlike its competitors, is free.
Thorsten Kohnhorst of monsterkodi has dropped by TouchMyApps and let us know about his upcoming iPhone game called Kraut. After spending some time with Kraut, I must say that I am quite impressed by the quality and unique design of the game. It is refreshing to see that not only the EA’s and Gamelofts can come up with well polished and actually fun games!
With their highly anticipated release of Rolando just around the corner, ngmoco has given iPhone gamers another quality title in Dr. Awesome, Microsurgeon MD. Making use of the accelerometer, gamers are finally able to play Doctor on the iPhone. Starring as Dr. Awesome, your job is to save patients from a deadly outbreak by isolating and trapping an assortment of nasty viruses found within tissue cells.
Pangea Software is certainly no stranger to the iPhone gaming scene, with 6 games already available at the App Store. With the successful release of Enigmo under their belt, Pangea has once again released another physics based game in Antimatter. Unlike Enigmo though, Antimatter is a unique arcade game that resembles part pinball and part Geometry Wars. Rather than shooting everything up in sight, you must guide a streak of bright orange antimatter particles with your finger. Floating all around are ‘Cosmic Strings’ that light up the screen like a constellation map. With this antimatter, your job is to change the cosmic strings from a state of blue to a neon like orange by colliding the two together. Doing so will also add time to the clock. All the strings must turn orange before the timer runs out or else its game over.
When was the last time anyone played a racing game with a Snail as the main choice of character or ride? Never? Almost never? That’s why when I first saw this game, I had no idea what to expect. Was I in for a “snail-paced” and boring racer? Or as the saying goes, never judge a book by its cover? Even after just several minutes of Snail Mail action, I knew I had the answer to my question. Snail Mail is an amazingly fun and fast paced racing game for the iPhone.
