Boulder Dash XL App Review

image

Boulder Dash is an interesting game which is simple in concept, but difficult to master.  The idea of the game is not new in that you’re controlling a character in a 2D world where you have to find gems by walking through an underground area.  You can dig through sand to explore new areas, push round rocks to crush enemies or allow you to get to the other side of them.  There are other tops of rocks which you can’t dig through so you’ll have to explore your way around them.

Review: Zombies Don't Ride by Retro 64

image

Retro 64, developers of the awesome turn based tile RPG Rune Raiders, released a new game called Zombies Don’t Ride earlier this year.  This is one of those games that drive me nuts because while I can list several reasons why I shouldn’t like it, I find it hard to tear myself away from the game any time I load it up.  It’s certainly nowhere near the caliber of Rune Raiders, yet it’s highly addictive in its own way.  It also has the potential to be a money grubber, so if you can’t resist IAP, you might want to stay away.



What I Played this Week - GPP, Atomic Frogs and Dead Trigger!

image

This week I played 3 awesomely cool games at the $1.99 level and below...Galactic Phantasy Prelude is a space shooter RPG in the same class of game as Galaxy on Fire 2 (SD version recently went free and hit #1 in nine countries). Atomic Frogs, a physics puzzler that requires deft timing and aim to launch your frogs through the various obstacles. Last is a free to play shooter called Dead Trigger, which brings the joy of shredding Zombies to iPad in exquisitely detailed apocalyptic strokes. So, without further adieu, let the WIPTW game review madness commence!....

Aggro Cubes for iPhone, iPad & iPod Touch

Aggro Cubes is a fun game app which is getting extremely popular because of its simple, yet fun game play.  The object of the game is to make the red cubes fall off of a platform while keeping as many of the other cubes safe as possible.  There are a variety of different things you can do to make the red cubes fly off ranging from popping cubes off, expand and explode them and much much more.  As you progress through the game you’ll gain access to additional methods you can use to help you fly through the different levels.



For the most adventurous, insane and gnarliest escapades, the Optrix iPhone case is your perfect companion!

Okay, let me start by saying I've never engaged in a more extreme sport than off-road motocross. Hands down, of all the sports I've been involved with over this lifetime, including Shotokan Karate, Tae Kwon Do, Single-handed sailing, track or kayaking to name a few, none has ever beat the living-daylights out of me like off-road motorcycle riding.

 

Now I will admit to delusions of grandeur at times, when I am out there racing my brother, catching air and eating dirt, thinking about turning pro... but that said, I do ride pretty hard and fast and as a result I've had my fair share of bumps and bruises (and sprains and breaks too!) over the years.

 
    
 
So when I say to you, that the Optrix XD iPhone case is worthy of its claims of being one of the most hardcore and rugged cases on the market it is no small matter. The Optrix is designed for just about any crazy adventure you can imagine. And with its built-in 175 degree wide-angle lens, it is truly the perfect accessory for capturing those crazy, extreme moments on film as they go down.


Never Miss Perfect Holiday Photos

image

Back in January I wrote a review of an amazing photo editing app called Groupshot (read it here). In short, it is an app that lets you take the best shots of people in multiple photos and merge them into one. It's the time of year again when you'll probably be taking family photos and will need to edit weird looks out of the final picture. Groupshot is the best app for doing just that. It's still only $.99



Mapi improves on Apple's iPad SmartCase design, and brings it to the iPhone

image
I've written about Mapi's iPad cases before, and I'm a fan of their materials and quality. They make cases for iPads that learn from Apple's SmartCover concept and take it a step further.


Like Apple's SmartCover, the flap folds in a triangle, to offer a couple of viewing angles. But you can rotate the stand to use it in portrait or landscape mode, which even Apple's case doesn't do.
