Working on a couple of reviews, but wanted to get the word around about two newer titles am trying out this week and also admit to playing SlotZ Racer for more hours than I should have. rRootage Online HD is a top-down, scrolling shooter port of a game originally from legendary programmer Kenta Cho. "Shoot-N-Squirm" from a hail of bullets might be an apt description. Magic Defenders is yet another Tower Defense, but with a wizard manning the watch...

Some have reasonably argued that full fledged RPGs are a bit too overwhelming for the portable market where the majority of users only spend minutes at a time playing games. Several developers have attempted to provide the RPG fix without the RPG commitment, and Pocket Warriors is one of those games. It actually fits the mold somewhat well, except for the fact that it’s so watered down the game play becomes redundant and boring rather quickly. At least it looks pretty and sounds halfway decent, though.

This week, I discovered a slot car racing experience (called SlotZ Racer) which is about the most fun I have had playing games on the iPod touch (the developers really nailed it). Another fun distraction has been Destructopus, a scrolling smash-n-duck monster attack. Finally, not strictly under the "what I played" category, but figured I would close out with a mini-review of the social news reader called nu.

If you are in the market for something mind-numbing yet enjoyable on this long Labor Day weekend, go snag Destructopus: Total Ramage! (spelled that way on the AS). Hearkening back to the days of 16-bit nirvana, this Rampage-like scroller is more fun than a triple somersault cannonball off the high dive (which I hope you will attempt sober this year)!
