Quick Look: FlairHockey for iPad

image

I have always been an avid fan of air hockey.  Every time I play, it takes me back to a family vacation we took when I was a child. A group of us staying in the same hotel organized a tournament on the game room's air hockey table.  It turned into one of those winners stays on type games...and I never left.  



iGameDock: The Game that Keeps Giving!

image

The games on the App store are becoming like sand grains on the beach. There are just so many of them, that it's easy to miss good ones. There are games within games--not just a single game, but multiple games under a single app, and what's more, the games change to new ones with updates! Dreamsky has developed such an app called iGameDock. I love getting 3 games for the price of one, even if 2 of the games are kind of okay, and one of them is cool.



Two Twilight-themed apps for tweens, in time for Eclipse

image

If you have tweens in your household, particularly girls, then you already know about the Twilight saga, and they've probably already seen Eclipse, which just came out.  So you should download The Twilight Saga - Eclipse Movie Game FREE right now.  It's free, hence the title, and is a well-done visually appealing quiz app based on the movie.

Review: Paradise Quest by I-Play

image

I’m pretty sure it’s been at least a couple of days since I’ve reviewed a match 3 game, so I figured it was time to go down that road again.  This journey takes us to Paradise Quest, a match 3 game by I-Play about restoring an island to its former state of paradise.  I have to admit that at first it felt like “just another match 3 game”, but either I really love the genre or the game does grow on you after a while.  Add to that the whole concept of building up and island and there’s something worth exploring here.  There’s even multiplayer if you’re so inclined, which is quite unusual for this style of game play.  Overall there’s plenty to do in an environment that gets more enchanting each time I visit.



Ozone HD for the iPad Review

image

Geardome's Ozone HD asks in its description, "Can a game be a piece of art?"  In the case of Ozone HD, the answer is yes.  While the art may be abstract and inspired from previous arcade puzzle classics such as Marble Madness, there are enough unique attributes and approaches to the play field that make Ozone HD a memorable gaming experience.

image

OMG, this is AWESOME! Tilt To Live is FREE this weekend. You can get the details here at the game site, or head over to freeappaday.com, and be on the lookout for it to pop, because it would be a shame to miss this highly addictive and fun game (see my review here)!



Guessing which app to get? Stop guessing because Guess the News is Free Today

image

I have written before about Finger Arts and their Hangman RSS app.  It's a great app because not only does it keep you entertained, but it's informative.  News feeds are used for the hangman words.  Well, Finger Arts had another cool app before Hangman RSS and it's called Guess the News.  And while they have a Lite version for free, the pro version is free TODAY ONLY in partnership with OpenFeint.

If you like news, wheel of fortune, hangman, crosswords, or just well polished apps, and you like FREE, you will like Guess the News!

Review: Monster Mayhem by Chillingo

image

First the folks at Taplay brought us a nifty take on the Jawbreaker style of game play with the fun game Virus Laboratory.  For their second outing they decided to tackle the wall defense game with the appropriately named Monster Mayhem.  This time, however, you’re not trying to prevent the nasties from breaking in, but rather you’re trying to prevent them from getting out.  There are several different types of weapons at your disposal to help with crowd control, but what really makes this game is the crowd you’re trying to control.  With 21 different types of creatures, you’ll always find something new to be amused with… until they kill you or rob you blind, of course.



Review: Super Laser by EpicForce

image

When iFighter Lite came out and I saw the screen shots I thought to myself “I’m buying the full version when it comes out”.  The full version came out, I bought it, and even though I had forgone trying the lite version first, I didn’t regret my purchase at all.  When I saw the screen shots for Super Laser I thought “I want to get this game”, and the feeling was cemented when I realized it was from the same developers that made iFighter.  After spending some time with Super Laser I can only hope that this isn’t the last scrolling shooter we’ll see from EpicForce.  Super Laser not only ups the ante from iFighter, but it feels like the game Assault Squadron should have been (minus the horizontal scrolling levels, though).
