Tower defense games get a new look, new mechanics, new gameplay, and a new face in Elemental Monster TD. It is a game that adds enough of a twist to the standard TD gameplay to keep things feeling nice and fresh. It is also one, if given enough time and opportunity, that will grow on you.
Gaming on the iPhone/iPod Touch just keeps getting better and better. Developers have been giving us more new apps than we can possibly handle (at least all at once). The past two days, we’ve even seen some of the hottest old school games from back in the day make their way onto the iDevice: Mega Man II and Wolfenstein 3D Classic. Those who loved these two classic titles will undoubtedly get a kick re-living those memories once again while on-the-go.
TD lovers will be happy to know that ElementalMonster TD and Dungeon Defense bring some new elements and twists to the genre. In ElementalMonster, trading cards are now incorporated into the game and Dungeon Defense invites you to the dark side as you take control of the undead. Last but not least, THQ brings WWE Legends of WrestleMania to the small screen, where 10 WWE legends and a career mode await you. Be sure to check out gameplay videos after the break!

As you all know from my previous review, I’m a real-time managing expert. Ok, I may not be an expert, and I may not even be close to a professional, but I do know fun and intense games when I see them. Cake Mania 3 is definitely on the fun and intense side, and probably more on the intense side.
Hudson has just released Crayon Physics Deluxe at the App Store. Those familiar with the popular title Touch Physics should feel right at home with this well designed puzzler. While I haven’t had the chance to explore the entire game, it seems to be well polished and challenging. One thing I did notice right away is that you are able to draw more complex shapes than in Touch Physics. Whatever it is you draw will come to life on screen. Very cool indeed. There are currently 50 levels as well as a level editor, a feature that will surely add loads of replay value. More screen shots and info after the jump.
