I was given the opportunity to take a look at the beta version of Moonga, a Customizable Card Game coming soon to the App Store. I do feel like one of the few people who’s never really gotten into the whole CCG scene, but this one looked like a nice simple CCG to ease myself into. I liked the fantasy style art, so I was immediately drawn in to this easy to play game.
Chillingo are on a Vampire kick and though Origins is yet to debut, another game, Dracula: Path of the Dragon lustily awaits the fall (hint) of night engorge on App Store adventure fans. Path of the Dragon is a port of the intricate (and hardcore) point and click PC adventure of the same name and promises to be a complex and dark exploration of the occult, so get your blood-soaked, hex-marked thinking caps on for its autumn release.

Lewis Caroll either wrote about his niece in the perennially popular Alice in Wonderland, or, as is often explained, his imagination may have drifted in cloud-like from other sources (wink, wink). Nevertheless, the classic canonical English story is getting a rush of contemporary interest. As Sonic BOOM envision it, Alice in Bomberland’s exotic mix of game play will hardly be a departure from its incredible origins. Check after the gap for more info!
Aera, which caught our eyes 7 Sept has flown the coop to some pretty good reviews at the App Store and is waiting in the wings for another good review. Connor, here at TMA will be doing a formal review soon, but in the meantime, he has leaked some preliminary impressions:
If F.A.S.T. seems intimidating and you want a fun, casual flight / air combat sim, Aera could be what you’re looking for. The controls take a bit of getting used to, but once you get them down, you’re off. Aera is a 2D flight sim, so don’t expect Microsoft flight simulator realism. Get ready for a fun, operational flight sim.

Spurned by a recent trip to Seoul, Clickgamer devs have decided to make a simulation of the chaos. The only difference of course, is that in Pile Up!, you don’t need to run screaming for your life at a green crossing signal. Right, so that a massive lie, but Pile Up!, a new god-game simulation which manages things on a much smaller scale than SimCity is revving its engines for a bout at the App Store. If you’ve ever scorned the aimless direction given by a traffic cop, laughed at her/his funny white gloves as she waved you around the corner; if you’ve ever wished for nothing more than the tidy centre of a hot, stuffy, smoggy intersection, then Pile Up! may tickle your fancy.
Despite my aversion to the automobile, god-games tickle me the right way and Pile Up! certainly looks interesting.
Sleepless nights and whirling marble shooters do not mix well, but they are the fare by which I stay somewhat sober. Tumblebugs, a game which I am loath to call a Blackbeard clone, is a new game by Connect2Media and Tag Games which will have you spinning like mad. What 35 million PC users have already discovered is that it is fun, but not easy to save the bug world from the evil dominion of the black bug and his legions.
At just shy of 3$, Enigmo 2 shoots into the App Store in the same bracket as its older brother, the award-winning Enigmo. This time, however, Pangea Software had to outdo themselves by one-upping their popular puzzler, Enigmo.

Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars will be the franchise’s first story-driven GTA game for the iPhone. Yes, that is right, the series which inspired Payback, Gangstar, and Car Jack Streets, will hit the iDevice like a six-shooter this fall.
So what are the pillars of the Time Management genre at the App Store? A couple of names come to mind, Sally’s Spa and Hospital Havoc. I will admit to being a closet TML (time management lover) who’s secure in his effectuality (yepp) as a productive human being. However, I am not the best housekeeper, something Anna Montana, a new game by CDE and Humble Gaming has taught me.
CDE Humble Gaming have made the following additions to the game which I will be reviewing shortly (follow the gap):
Here at TouchMyApps, we’ve certainly covered our share of defense type games (castle and tower) for the iDevice. Some of the more notable ones include Star Defense, Knights on Rush, Medieval and geoDefense. While these titles each brought something new and unique to the table, they simply can’t compete with Alcomi’s upcoming ‘Toilet Defense’ when it comes to dealing with crap. As evident by the game’s title, your mission (should you choose to accept it) is to play as the watchman named “Red Dungaree” and defend the castle (aka toilet) at all costs from the poor souls who need to go baaad.
How it is hard to live in … New York. There are so many people, who are always in a hurry and run for their business, nevertheless each of them stops to do … the deed, to sit, to think, to lose touch with bustle.
You will be in the role of toilet defender and you need to not let the enemies in the WC, fire them all and scare them off. With each level the quantity of enemies will increase and at the end you will meet with the Boss, who really need to get to cherished room. Stop him and you will win!
Toilet Defense may not appeal to everyone (especially if your idea of a superhero isn’t one who’s dressed in red tights and shoots poop to stop his/her foes), but if the defense genre is right up your alley and “Poop the World” is secretly one of your favorite apps, Alcomi’s latest may very well be the next $0.99 game purchase to provide you with some form entertainment. More screenies and a gameplay video after the jump.
