What I played this week - TapTalpa.HD and CubeSieger

image

This week I played 2 very different games, and wanted to get this posted up before the madness of CES begins in earnest. Several iPhoneLife personnel, including yours truly, will be stalking the show floor again this year, so if you happen to see one of us, come and say hi (look for the iPhoneLife patch). The first game is a $1.99 version of Whac-a-mole called TapTalpa, and the other is an interesting abstract board game called CubeSieger (lite versions available). They are both a little odd-ball, and I have to admit that at least one of them needs more work before it deserves to cost $1.99 on the app store.



Police Training on your iPhone

Coming soon to an iOS device near your face comes another tap shooter called Professional Police Trainer 2 (P.P.T.original here). You always wanted to draw down on a bad guy but let's face it, that would be scary. Plus you'd have to get up off the couch. Anyway, for all you crack shots of the P.P.T. realm, the updated version will be out soon, and you can get another taste of lawman adrenaline from the comfort of your Lazyboy!

Kids Learn while having fun

image

As a parent, it’s only natural for my kids to want to play with my Iphone.  That’s why I’ve been looking for some good apps for my 5 year old to play with that will help her to learn what she needs for school in a way that makes it fun for her to do so.  If you were going to only buy one app to do this, I would recommend the app by RosMedia called “123 Kids Fun All in One”

All in One has 8 different activities for kids to do that will stimulate their minds and keep them occupied without getting board with repetitive actions.  Children with this app will learn matching, sound recognition, colors, shapes, and also good han



Draco The Dragon App Review

image

DRACO is a 2D top-down scroller shooter game. The app starts off with a good animation about the back-story of the game. The graphics and the music fit well into the game. After the intro video, the player, for the first time, will enter his or her own name. After which the player picks their hardness, color of their dragon and after a brief introduction to the controls is shown, the user can start the game.

The rules are fairly simple - avoid the oncoming dragons/obstacles & their fire/shots. Tilt the device in in either direction to move your dragon (tilt iPhone to the right, the dragon moves to the right, etc.) and tap the screen to shoot.



Burst! Time Kill for 2012!

image

Looking for a time killer physics game this New Year's Eve while waiting for the ball to drop? Check out Burst!... Pretty simple concept. Swipe to shoot arrows at balloons. Even a monkey could play Burst! Not only would he play it, but he would love it probably, and maybe get the top score on Game Center. The game has some kind of backstory and special play modes, but I mean really...who cares? Shoot the darn balloons and move along to the next level, right? The monkey does not care why... I make joke now, but nevermind. Read on for the full press release DL below...



Review: Youda Survivor by G5 Games

image

Well, G5 Games has done it again.  Jane’s Zoo, Supermarket Mania 2 and Jack Of All Tribes were all excellent time management games, and I expected nothing less from Youda Survivor.  The reality, though, is that at some point one of these games just isn’t going to shine like the others.  Thankfully we haven’t reached that point yet.  This game is as addictive as the rest, and it already has me anticipating the next great G5 time management wonder.



Review: Egg Punch by Pixel Juice

image

So do you like physics puzzle games where you roll an object around a level trying to gather items and ultimately make it to a particular spot like a hole or something of that nature?  I do too.  As such, I had really high hopes for Egg Punch.  At first the game didn’t disappoint, either.  Sadly, it didn’t take too long before the levels became overly difficult for how little I had progressed in the game.  Add to that a lack of explanation for how the scoring actually works and a claim that the game can be completed without in-app purchases that I’m beginning to question, and Egg Punch has lost any spark that it started out with.
