Bookworm now $0.99 + More great deals!

bookworm_sale1While none of these price drops top the one we posted earlier in the day - iDodge: Space Ninja Free for a day, there are still some sweet deals if you’re looking at adding to your app collection. For many word game addicts (including myself), PopCap Games’ hugely successful Bookworm goes on sale for the first time since its release several months ago. If you recall, when PopCap dropped Peggle’s price to $0.99, the highly addictive game (think Pachinko + Pinball) shot up the sales chart and into the top ten. At $0.99 (sale ends Aug 5th), Bookworm is a can’t miss title for any iDevice.

The other great deal is ngmoco’s action packed Star Hogs: Online & Campaign Battle. In our last App Store Deals post (which you should check out as some of the sales are still in effect!), Star Hogs dropped to $2.99. Now, this great Worms like title can be had for only $0.99. EA’s Spore Origins, along with F.A.S.T – Fleet Air Superiority and My Brute are all on sale for a dollar. Be sure to have a good look at the list below for more great deals!

Star Defense in Review – TD Given the Super Mario Galaxy Treatment

If there’s one genre of games that has gone through a gamut of change, it’s Tower Defense. Much like the variety of Super Mario Brothers games, there has been a gradual shift from 2D to 3D gameplay. Not content with just 3D graphics and gameplay, the most recent change in the Super Mario Brothers world has been the ability to fully explore a multitude of small planets in an amazing 3D experience. Star Defense represents this next stage in the evolution of TD games…one that breathes new life into a tried and true formula.

As has been mentioned before, Tower Defence is a crowded genre at the App Store – very crowded – and full of great games. When ngmoco announced Star Defense, a true-3D TD game to hit App Store shelves around June, an almost audible groan could be heard from many gaming fans who have tasted the best already and are wanting something different for dessert. Well, Star Defense is not just another TD, it is another TD that has enough new gameplay to warrant a new genre.
