Released earlier this month, Nikki Holiday and the Pirate Star is yet another point-and-click adventure game for the iPhone and iPod Touch. Available for only one dollar, the application takes you through the few days leading up to main character, Nikki's, fame as a singing celebrity. There are currently a whole bunch of similar titles able to be purchased on the App Store, but this certainly takes the cake.
Despite the popularity of other games soaring high, I have to say that Nikki and the Pirate Star was undoubtedly the most amount of fun I've had with point-and-click games as such. I'm not a huge puzzle buff nor am I a fan of such titles, but this truly won over my free time over the past few days.
It should come as no surprise in these parts that I am a sucker for a word game. In fact, not long ago I posted a roundup of a few of the more popular variations. One that I left off at the time was a game which was then called Squabble. Not long ago, Squabble all but disappeared from the App Store for a short time, only to reappear last week with overhauled graphics and a brand new name: Jangle.

I love old school pinball games. There’s just something about these vintage games that brings you back to your youth-even if you are way too young to remember these (and I’m including myself in those ranks).
Rollover contains that iconic bit of the freestanding gaming, the eternally beloved shiny metal ball. Like any good game though, Rollover takes the best of what we loved before and adapts it to the current technology-the iPhone. The objective of rollover is to get past blocks and other objects while keeping the ball on the board and avoiding those pesky holes. All right, so this part isn’t new, but you get the idea.
