Solar Flux HD Brings Healing Power to the Universe! [Review]

image

If an environmentally friendly group of alien programmers had written Angry Birds Space, it might have turned out much like Solar Flux HD ($3.99). Instead of destroying pig domiciles in the far reaches of the universe, you need to heal ailing suns through clever manipulation of your spacecraft.

The game is 226MB in size, so you might want to grab it through iTunes or Wi-Fi. When you start it up, it walks you through the basic tutorial levels to teach you how to control the ship, collect plasma fragments, and use the various gravity effects to score on each level. The game ran pretty well, though it seemed to take longer and longer to load as I progressed.

Top Ten Game Apps for the Iphone 4

 

Angry Birds- I have included the free version of angry bird because I think it is one of the best games played on the iPhone. It's a very addictive game so I would recommend  giving it a try on the iPhone. You will enjoy not only the free version but I think you will want to purchase the paid version as well.

 



Review: Foodies by Nano Titans

image

Foodies is a physics game that doesn’t look much like other physics games, and in a world filled with games that want to be just like Angry Birds or Cut The Rope, that’s a good thing.  It’s even got a novel control mechanic that both makes sense and more often than not works well.  There’s even a cute protagonist and an amusing story, for those of you that need either one of those things (or both).  My main issue at this point is that there is a fine line between creative and cruel, or challenging and frustrating, and Foodies likes to play on that line quite frequently, even in the lower levels.  Oh, and it would be nice to be able to turn the insulting kids off as well.



Mobile App Analytics Packages: How are your users using your app?

App publishers should be looking at their app's statistics in order to gain an understanding of their app's performance: how often is it being downloaded, what are user's doing inside their app, are their any bugs in their app that keep a user from fully enjoying their app.



'Tiny WIngs' Steals 'Angry Birds' Crown as #1 Paid App

In a quick ascension to #1, Tiny Wings took the top paid iPhone app spot away from Angry Birds last week. Tiny Wings was released within the last several weeks, and has quickly been gaining momentum since its launch! Why has this game become so popular?

Tiny Wings is a simple, elegant and completely addicting game that feeds on many similar aspects to its comepitor, it even uses birds...



Life imitates Apps at #CES

Pocket God, I am T-Pain and Angry Birds have taken the app world by storm, and I guess it was only inevitable that the real world would want their own versions. Pocket God now has models of their characters available for purchase. You can act out your own scenes of destruction (or benevolence) as you see fit, or just display them in a glass case, the way your grandmother displayed Hummel figurines!





How was it for you? ...On Angry Birds Day?

image

This is a rather belated post about what happened in various cities during Angry Birds Day 11thDec 2010.  And so it seems that Scandinavians, in this case, Rovio, the developers of Angry Birds who hail from Finland, are not great party organisers and therefore the world-wide turn-out was reportedly not fantastic. There were, of course, a small group of hardcore fans who did show up at gatherings in New York and Los Angeles dressed up as – what else – Angry Birds.



Pigs beware: Angry Birds Xmas edition is on its way; Angry Birds Day is officially 11th Dec 2010

image

Rovio, the Finnish Developers of top iphone app, Angry Birds, have hinted in their twitter feeds that there will be an Angry Birds Christmas edition. Apparently it’s going to be a free update for those who purchased the Halloween edition but probably a round of $0.99 donations for the rest of us.

Not content to sit on their laurels, it also looks like Angry Birds is going to take on life outside the iphone in a big way (where it started).
