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.
If you’re the type of gamer that just wants to jump into a game with no need for instruction, if you like no-strategy gameplay, if you like mindless button-mashing, if you like games that go on and on with no change and no real reward… Boy, do I have a game for you!
Okay 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.
Sometimes 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.

Don’t be upset that the picture above isn’t of Mariah Carey. Some guys (or girls) relate the word “fantasy” with visions of scantily clad vixens, but when I think of the word, it’s usually “I wonder how I’m doing in my Fantasy (insert sport here) Pool!!!” Having Sportacular helps me answer that question right away. Whether you’re a fantasy sports junkie, or just a sports junkie in general, Sportacular keeps you connected with all the sporting info you need while on the go.
From the days long gone, when Tom Cruise felt the need for speed, got involved in some risky business, and was counted among a few good men comes the racer based off the movie Days of Thunder. Despite the source material, which does not need to be seen to understand the story or mechanics of the game, Days of Thunder (the App) stands strong as the first stock car racer the AppStore has to offer.
When I was first introduced to Yard Sale Hidden Treasures, I had no idea what it was all about; all I know was that it had very good reviews on iTunes as well as on other websites. Given those, I had high expectations.
It seems like vector-esque graphics are the new vogue. With the rise in popularity of games such as Vector Tanks and Blue Attack!, it was only a matter of time before developers brought this visual style to the arena of Tower Defense (aka) TD games. This seems a no brainer given the fact that one of the better Flash TD games out there is Vector TD, a TD game that is done in vector graphics. Yet, despite the fact that the TD genre has a growing number of entries and that vector graphics may one day be passe, geoDefense does make a strong case in justifying its presence in your iDevice and within the TD genre in general.
I am a man of many moods. This is why I love the AppStore. I can find Apps that fit my current state of mind. One mood that has been seeing much rotation in my life is that of quietness. As I get older, I tend to find time to draw myself away from the fast paced, extreme themed, action oriented options that are out there and seek for simplicity and solitude. Wooden Labyrinth 3D goes a long way in enhancing those peaceful times.
