I wouldn't normally blog about price changes, but EA has dropped the prices on a ton of apps, that have mass appeal, so here's the scoop... I will be picking up Simpsons Arcade myself.  Enjoy!

 

 



Shaun White and iPhone Life!

image

Everyone knows Shaun White, thanks to the recent Winter Olympics and his trademark red hair!  But would you believe that his favorite iPhone magazine is iPhone Life?  It helps that iPhone Life is the ONLY magazine dedicated to the iPhone, but nonetheless, Shaun was gracious enough to pose for a picture and sign an issue of the magazine!

Shaun was on hand at the Marvell Semiconductor booth, at CTIA in Las Vegas, this past week, to help promote Marvell's commitment to making the Always-On lifestyle possible.  Mr. White knows his stuff, having a number of games that bear his name.  Shaun White Origins is available in both FREE and paid versions on the iTunes app store.

Zombies..........Yikes!

image

One of the things that really entertains me is zombie movies. I am not really sure why they do because to be honest they scare the heck out of me. I think I have watched the palm of my hands more on a couple of them than the actual film. But for whatever reason, I like zombie movies. I also like zombie games. I like the kind of zombie games where I can just shoot them. I do not have any need for any kind of story plot. I just want a bunch of ammo and weapons galore to take care of business.



Word Mesh - a unique word game that WILL steal your time - guaranteed!

image

Word Mesh is a word game, but it's not like all the others out there. In this game, you are given two definitions and a set of letters. You have to reveal two words that match the definitions.



Review: Boom Boxes by Hedgehog Lab

image

When I read the press release for Boom Boxes I thought “I’m not quite sure I get it”, so I asked the developers for a video.  They didn’t have one yet, so they sent me a promo code to try it instead.  I’m not sure how interested I would have been in the game after just watching a quick video, but after spending some time playing Boom Boxes, I’m so glad I got the opportunity to try it.  The game is fun, it’s challenging, and the developer clearly understands the concept of progression of difficulty.  If you’re looking for a good casual game that’s also challenging, look no further than Boom Boxes.



Review: Knife Toss by Crawl Space Games

image

C’mon, admit it… you’ve always wanted to run away and join the circus, haven’t you?  Well, okay, me neither, but the circus is still pretty cool.  Now, thanks to the game Knife Toss from Crawl Space Games you can experience two of the coolest parts of the circus at once – knife throwing and clowns.  Of course, depending on your aim the clown won’t be so happy, but it’s all good fun none the less.



Biblicious feels like a real game show - great fun!

image

Biblicious gives me the feeling that I’m participating in a real game show - I like that! The host sounds like the guy from Let's Make a Deal or one of those other game shows, which is really effective in setting the mood. 

The questions are fun - some easy and some challenging - so anyone with a bit of knowledge of the Bible should enjoy playing. And what a clever way to learn something new about the Bible. When you get a wrong answer, it gives you the scripture reference so you can look it up and learn more.  



Spirit for iPhone and touch

image

 Spirit, designed by programmer Marco Mazolli, is the kind of retro-looking game that I gravitate towards, pun intended. The crisp vector-like graphics, airy music, and retro game grid is like playing a trippy version of Tempest, Star Castle, and Tron all rolled together (some of my favs from the 80s). The only problem is that Spirit becomes too dificult in the early levels, and there is a definite lack of power-ups or extra lives to sustain you into the higher levels.
