If you're looking for a fun and educational app for you or your children this Christmas, Jolly Jingle might be just the one. This app is designed to help people learn some of the most popular Christmas songs around, but it really goes a step beyond that for children. Kids will enjoy listening to and learning their favorite Christmas tunes, but while learning the songs they will also be practicing their reading skill!
Everybody loves cute and furry bunnies. That is why when those charming creatures need help it’s impossible to say no. If you like kind and vivid fairytales the game Funny Bunny was created especially for you. A big bunny family faced with horrible catastrophe – during the terrible night hurricane their crops were destroyed. But a brave bunny Funny decided to defy the odds and find the food to save his brothers and sisters from hunger. Though he should stand against magic villains – a witch, large-toothed hunting dog, spiteful postman and avaricious leprechaun – nothing will prevent him from planting carrot seeds and harvesting.
Two awesome 99 cent titles this week, and likely my last WIPTW article of 2012, so a happy holidays to everyone, and here is hoping you have a great new year in 2013! Starbase Gunship is a new game from Capital j Media. A stationary 3D shooting game that puts you at the center of the action as enemy ships and incoming weapons head toward your base station. Blasting through and surviving enemy waves will allow you to build up enough creds to update your base firepower and protection levels. Angry Birds Space HD is pig busting in zero-G, and like every other Angry Birds (all of which are currently on sale), powerfully addictive.
Joggit Memory provides a challenging and fun way to stimulate your brain with a unique memory recall experience in every session you play. Once you start playing, it is hard to stop. It’s best to use this app frequently to exercise your brain like gym equipment is used to exercise your body. At home or on the go, Joggit Memory is a perfect complement to reading, word search and crossword puzzles.
Got to love the holiday sales, right? In the spirit of the season, several vendors are proving their "non-Scrooge-iness" by offering up reduced pricing and FREE apps to close out 2012! But some only appear to be free, so FREE buyer beware! First up, you can grab great Activision re-styled classics like Pitfall (uh, TOTALLY FREE), Guitar Hero ($1.99), Call of Duty: Zombies ($1.99) and more great games at reduced prices (search App store for Activision). You can also grab a slew of cool games like Shoot the Zombirds (FREE) from Infinite Dreams, iQuarium HD (99 cents), and Jelly Defense (99 cents), plus several more low-priced titles. While you are up in the App store nabbing these great games, you might check out Sleigher and Ears the Astronaut, both pseudo-FREEBIES that I must now sadly report require in-app purchases to advance, which RUINS FREE, IMO (and must now pull from my review queue)...
To celebrate the holiday season many top apps are now on sale for a limited time. Read on to find out which popular apps have had their prices slashed! Great apps that are sure to be on your holiday wish list or gift list are on sale now.
I previously reviewed Battle Fleet from Capital j Media--a unique iOS naval strategy game--and so was stoked to check out their new game, Starbase Gunship, which just went live (you can grab it now for intro price of 99 cents)! The game requires you to play the 3-D space gunner lucky enough to be on duty just as waves of incoming ships, missiles, etc. careen towards your home station. I'll post up a full review later, but you can check out the trailer above to get the idea...
