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.

Knights Onrush is a deceptive game. Its deceptively simple – defend your castle from waves of enemies trying to storm your gate. So in some ways, it’s your typical tower defense game. But at the same time, you are far more involved in the immediate defense of your castle in Knights Onrush than in similar games. It’s not just relegated to your placing defenses and letting them do their work – you have to actively deploy those defenses yourself. And that’s only one of the differences this game presents.
Pocket Tanks is a game that has been around in some shape or form since 2001. It’s available for the Windows and OSX platforms. As stated in the iTunes page, “Almost 2 million downloads from download.com alone (PC version).” With such a large fan base, a leg up in terms of gameplay refinement, and the staying power of 8 years of experience, (I know I’m going to get some flak for this) I’m surprised at how much I felt Pocket Tanks was lacking.

Historian of human life and the coming end of the world, I am here to tell you from the far flung future of the year 2154, that the events of UniWar are real. This is the fate of our world, the outcome of our people and the end of our existence. You died honorably but painfully.
UniWar is an online multiplayer turn-based strategy game for your iPhone and iPod touch from developer Xpressed. The game itself plays much like the classic Advance Wars for the Gameboy Advance and DS Lite, but has the feel of real-time strategy game Starcraft in its unit abilities and character design.
Tower defense games get a new look, new mechanics, new gameplay, and a new face in Elemental Monster TD. It is a game that adds enough of a twist to the standard TD gameplay to keep things feeling nice and fresh. It is also one, if given enough time and opportunity, that will grow on you.
I bought iQuest from Better Day Wireless then I first laid my eyes on it in the iTunes App Store. It is a real Fantasy MMO (Massively Multi-player Online) with Role playing elements in it! iQuest is a much more serious MMO in my eyes than the dime a dozen iMafia & iMob. It is a refreshing and intelligent app and the first MMO of its kind in the app store. It looks pretty grandiose, so let’s see if it lives up to expectations.
I was surprised, I mean, literally surprised when I first started playing TNA Wrestling on my iTouch. I mean, I played wrestling games before, but I’ve never experienced anything like this. Simply put, TNA Wrestling is the most unique wrestling games I have ever played, seen, or heard of, and the further I progress in the game, the more it continues to astound me and draw me further in.
