The Flaming Igloo game is a fairly enjoyable yet challenging game. The basic premise is you have to put out fires on your igloo by throwing snow balls at it. If the fire goes on to long you’ll have to throw a large piece of ice at the igloo to fix it. The makers of this game did a good job with the physics of the game making it challenging to throw the ice or snow at the right spot on the igloo. There are many levels which get more challenging as you go and add in additional options.

Welcome to the Thanksgiving edition of my somewhat-weekly column featuring the games, apps or even gadgets I played with during the week. It's not always strictly iOS related, as last week (or was it the week before?) I reviewed the HP TouchPad, though a couple of the apps mentioned also have iOS versions. This week, it's all iPhone/iPod/iPad and all free, so if you want to get some game on this turkey day weekend, it won't cost you a cent. Bowmaster Lite brings you the thrill of the early pilgrims, who couldn't go to the supermarket to bag a turkey. Chromian Wars is a new war strategy sim game with AR features. My fav of the bunch has to be Falling Stars--quickly make funky tones/beats with this addictive and free music maker game.
Would you believe me if I told you Corpse Granny was another physics-based puzzle game? Of course you would, because it’s been at least a couple of days since I’ve reviewed one of those. This game does well what any physics based game should do – it lets the player manipulate objects to drop on, bounce into or otherwise dispose of various targets. In this case those targets are zombies, which is just a nice bonus. There are some great ideas in this game, but the pacing is a bit off and the introduction of new items is somewhat haphazard. It hasn’t grabbed me quite as well as some other puzzle games, which is a shame because there is lots of potential.
