Review: Zombie Dash by Clickgamer

image

I’d say zombie games on the App Store were a dime a dozen, but that’s obviously not true since Apple won’t let you charge less than 99 cents a game. However, there are certainly a sizeable number of games in the App Store that feature zombies in some way, shape or form. So what does one do to make a zombie game that stands out from the crowd? One way would be to create a game like Zombie Dash. You won’t find any heavy artillery or mass destruction here. Instead, you must use your wits and some creative finger work to stay away from the zombies as long as possible. Thank goodness you can fuel up on mossburgers…



IMP Music Game Review

image

IMP: Surf the Music from Koolhaus Games is a fun game, and in fact I wish I had gotten around to reviewing it sooner. The graphics aren't super sophisticated, and the goal is simple sliding around a curving track, hitting objects called, "bits o funk" in time to backing music, but the game features some catchy tracks and good beat mixes, and I had a hard time putting it down. Read the rest of my mini-review after the break, or go check it out here.

Review: Deal Or No Deal Around The World

image

If you've ever wanted to be a part of Deal Or No Deal you have three choices.  First, try and get on the show.  For most people, that probably won't happen.  The second would be to play Deal Or No Deal: Around The World on your iPhone.  The third would be to just sit in front of the TV and make comments while the show is playing, even though you know the people on the TV can't hear you (or at least I hope you know that).  If your choice is between 2 and 3, I'd opt for choice number 3.  You might be a little less disappointed.

Deadly apps for Halloween

image

Free Halloween Sounds  (free) is just plain fun, what it is is fifteen free spooky sound effects (bats, ghosts, chainsaws, creaky floors, etc) and a spooky soundtrack you can play in the background.  To kick it up a notch just get a mini jack to 1/4" stereo jack and plug it into your sound system for Halloween and really give the kids a fright!  I've been playing with this thing so much even my son is getting tired of it, and he's 7!
