Doom II RPG – doesn’t the Devil ever rest?

The mobile RPG engine responsible for a lot of sleepless Nazi-hunters in Wolfenstein RPG has hell-rolled the D10 to the moon. Like the original Doom II, you and your stupid team will run back to the bright shining face to despatch baddies and answer a distress call. Unlike the original, you won’t be doing it in real-time – Doom II RPG is a turn-by-turn RPG ala its predecessor, Wolfenstein RPG. Tighten up your combat boots ladies and gents, hell is a sticky icky place with icky sticky humour.

The app is simple: take a picture, put on a wig, maybe a funny disguise. It is a cute way to enjoy the trivialities of instant costumes and hair loss.

Carpet Flight – Magic Carpet with or without the Magic

In the golden age of 3D gaming, a lot of truly groundbreaking titles smashed into software shops to dazzle fans. One of the best back in the mid nineties and still a benchmark title is Magic Carpet by Bullfrog games. Not sure how much magic is in the MellisugaSoft’s Carpet Flight, but at least there is a glimmering bit of borrowed inspiration. Carpet Flight isn’t an action game; it plays closer to Glyder than anything and could be called relaxing.

Funny, this game popped up after a request in our forums for an iDevice Magic Carpet.

iDroid Mini Browser – A sleek, and currently free Safari alternative

Today’s Cutie: Blond Jokes Jigsaw – hot puzzle?

While McApps are more known for quantity rather than quality, today they may well have bucked that trend. Blond Jokes Jigsaw – apart from the strange spelling – is a clever amalgamation of cute-sexyness and humour. You see, upon the completion of the 50 jigsaw puzzles, you are given a new blonde joke. Not sure if I should put an (!) somewhere here, but the idea sends thrills down my manly spine.

Green Tips! – free, eco-friendly for the green beginner

Here’s a conundrum: why do some ‘green’ apps ask you to pay for tips which can be read for free on internet? The answer is another shade of green. Sedona Software’s Green Tips! is one of a few which ask nothing in return to not only saving you a few dollars, but pointing you in a better direction. Okay, so a lot of the tips are ‘common sense’, but surprise surprise, there is no monopoly of the stuff. Another free app which uses the same or very similar database is MacAppetite’s GreenNexxus Green Tips (notice a trend?). The venerable Go Green is also a good free choice.

Green Tips! Sedona Software, Green Tips! – Free

Go Green Webworks and Applications, Go Green – Free

One thing to be wary of though: all of these apps refer to very similar databases. And each is not for the true environmentalist; they are for newbies who still own cars and think nothing of plastic bags or running the tap for hours. These tips are very good for the beginner.

New App: National Geographic World Atlas – A Journey All around the Earth

If only Professor Otto Lidenbrock and his nephew, Axel, were born a century and a half later – their trip to the interior of the earth would have been spared a few mishaps. As it is, National Geographic World Atlas comes at a poignant time: when the news of earthquakes and floods constantly tips all four corners of the globe in the minds of more and more people.

World Atlas allows armchair adventurers to explore the globe in: classic, political, satellite, and antique views. It also makes use of the in-built triangulation and GPS functions.

App Store Boner – Cancer sells: a story by Prof McMurphy and ZENESSA

ZENESSA are right when they say: “McMurphy’s Subliminal App for Cancer Patients can’t replace the appropriate treatment”. And they are right when quite positively, they postulate: “By controlling your thoughts, you CAN change your life”. But in titling their latest app Subliminal App for Cancer Patients by Prof McMurphy (SACPPM), they may have overstepped their already obnoxiously low morals. SACPPM is a stitch job of text fields, a few recorded encouragements and some retina reruns; it stands on the same technology as the other Subliminal ZENESSA apps which tackle various mental issues such as the fear of flying to trying to keep it up (YKWIM). And, in drawing attention to the word subliminal, ZANESSA are playing a somewhat open hand. But that open hand is a dangerous precedent especially at the volatile App Store. ZENESSA have turned cancer into a mental issue.
