Arcade Hoops Basketball in Review – Have fun with lotsa balls

arcadebasketball1I love balls…big red ones…the kind you dribble and shoot through hoops that is. Basketball has always been a favorite sport of mine, perhaps because I had a picture perfect jump shot like Mikail Jurdan, or not. For those who are vertically challenged or can’t shoot worth a lick (on standard sized baskets), they always have arcade basketball to fall back on to relive their favorite Kobe moments. Thanks to Skyworks, the developers behind other App Store offerings in Arcade Bowling, QB Pass Attack Football and X’s and O’s Football, this awesome arcade past-time has been miniaturized on to the iPhone.

GL Golf Deluxe in Review – Ugly, But Oh So Sweet + 2 Promo Codes

clgolf1GL Golf is like the first version of the hummer. It is boxy, obtrusive, and downright ugly. But like the car, it is one heck of a ride. Seriously, if you are like me and hate watching and playing golf in real life but thrill at the chance of virtually driving 300 yards off the tee, then this is your best bet (as of yet) on your iDevice.

Sentinel in Review – TD goes Sci-Fi!

One of the things I love about the app store is the sheer amount of choice.  Don’t get me wrong, some days I hate it as well also for that very same reason.  But, when you like a specific genre, such as TD games for example, it’s a nice place to be able to visit. Sentinel, by Origin8 is the latest addition to the TD bunch.  I won’t go into explaining TD games as it has already been done here at Touchmyapps in several reviews, but Sentinel brings in an element of science fiction and nice looking graphics which does add a fresh vibe.

Pocket God in Review – A very good source of laughter… especially during these times…

pocketgod1I was browsing the iTunes App Store one day, and I suddenly came across this app; I read the description in iTunes and I was very intrigued by the purpose of Pocket God. I initially though that this game is very similar to The Sims or others in the genre, but it turns out to be an entirely different type of game. Whatever caused me to download this game I have no regret in doing so.

zenbound1zenbound2

This may be my last review here at TouchMyApps.  I don’t know if I need to play any other game again.  Seriously, I don’t think I’ve ever been able to write as simple a review as this.  Basically, all I’m going to tell you is that you must get this game, you need this game, there is no excuse to not get this game.  It is BY FAR the best game on the iDevice to date.  No questions in my humble opinion, and no competition.  It may in fact be one of the best games I have ever played!!!

ATC 4.0 in Review – You Gotta Keep’em Separated

atc40_3

Ever wondered what the most stressful job in the world feels like? ATC 4.0 introduces iPhone gamers to the world of Air Traffic Control. The role of a enroute air traffic controller consists of sitting in dark radar rooms monitoring the flow of traffic, they issue instructions to follow headings, warn pilots of conflicting traffic, and clear aircraft for arrivals and departures. At times, it may feel like a video game….or does it?

Sway in Review – Let me PerSWAY you to get this!!!

sway1 How can a game that is so simple, be so challenging and fun at the same time? I mean really? I have never played a game where the instructions were so short and simple. I watched the tutorial video and thought to myself this was going to be simplest and easiest game I’ve ever played. There must be something more to it than that right??? Maybe I should stop asking so many questions and give a few answers.

Monsters in Review – Simon Says Scary

pinkOkay admit it, you like cute things. Things that make you laugh or smile. Babies, puppies, kitties – anything else? Okay, anything else cute that we can chat about on an iPhone review site? Something online? Something you can play with? Getting any ideas? Okay, in the App Store? How about Monsters? No no, not the cable company, the game.

Yeah, Monsters, brainchild of Samuel Vermette crept into the store 16 February to less fanfare than it deserves. Why? Well in the same timeframe, it has competed with many many applications including the Top App of the World; the App Store is a vicious place to do business.

ColorSplash in Review – Visual Emphasis + 1 Promo Code

01_colorsplash_trainSometimes photographs need a little more panache, style or dramatic emphasis but it’s not always convenient (or enjoyable) to transfer photos to a home computer for post-processing.

ColorSplash, the aptly named photographic manipulation app, gives you a bit of that Photoshop-like power in the palm of your hand. Specifically, it allows you to select the features of your images that will stand out in full color while the rest is converted to grayscale (black & white). While this single ability may sound simple, its results are anything but. Before we delve into the intricacies of the app, you need to see what I’m going on about.
