I probably say this more often than I should, but it still amazes me that often the most basic concepts can be the most addictive. Such is the case with the game Propel Man, which falls under the genre of “launch and watch” in terms of game play. It’s certainly a concept you’ve seen many a time before, but Propel Man presents itself in such a way that it almost feels like a fresh take on the idea. Slick audio and visual elements certainly don’t hurt the cause either.
The dream is a children's story about the main character named Ahmad and his adventure. The book can be either read by kids, or the app will read it to the children making it a fun app for kids from about age two through twelve. In addition to the story this app includes a 'fact find' section where you can tap on highlighted words while reading the story to learn some fun facts such as what different words mean. There is also a 'happy bazzar' which is a place to find related apps quickly and easily. There are several related apps to choose from and with a quick tap you'll be taken right to the app store.
It’s the same old story – alien ship gets hit, and despite their always advanced technology they end up helplessly careening into the earth. Much like another physics puzzler called Marbians you end up in a suburban home and find out that humans are much bigger than you are. You must find all your friends and ultimately flee your gigantic surroundings. The atmosphere is cute but the levels can be quite challenging, so feel free to take the game for a spin even if you are a “macho” adult. So far I haven’t been disappointed.

Considering how many apps are available in the Apple app store, not to mention how many are actually on my iPhone (close to 300), it's a bit daunting of a task to come up with only 10 apps to recommend here and now! There are simply so many amazing and award-winning apps out there and each is suited to an individual uniquely.
is a 3D physics/puzzle game that is a beauty to behold on the iPad, but before I give my review, I have to do a mini-review of the awesomely redesigned SugarSync (which is not a game--sorry about that). The old version of SS (a cloud file syncing app--reviewed here
), was not well suited to iPad, but the coders have fixed that in their recent upgrade! So before I tell you how great Fibble is, I want to tell you how great SugarSync
You may have noticed in your App Store Update bin, mucho apps getting the retina graphics treatment. If you are running any of the latest top of the line games, I imagine you'll be updating them soon as game designers rush to match up their app capability with the newest iPad display. Can Knockdown 2 is a recent addition to that category. I am somewhat surprised to note however that the bundled size of the app is only 1MB larger than the previous version? You can see the obvious difference in the imagery above (older version on top). Read on for the full PR on CK2 (see our original review here)...
One of the things I like about a Reiner Knizia game is that you never know what you’re going to get, but it’s always in a good way. Sure several of the games might feel like board games (especially since the source of many of them are), but the actual contents of each game is unique and often thought provoking. City Of Secrets Skyline HD is no exception to the rule. I will admit that one of my motivations for wanting to try the game was its tie-in to the upcoming City Of Secrets 2, but by itself the game is a simple yet challenging strategy game that certainly doesn’t feel like any other Reiner Knizia game I’ve played on my iOS devices.
The title of this game kind of scared me away, because I thought it was going to be the video game equivalent of a chick flick. The truth is that in a lot of ways it really is, but never the less it’s proven to be quite amusing. It’s a runner with finite levels, multiple goals and an altruistic purpose – to find true love. When you get past the mushiness you’ll discover a game that can at times be challenging, is always visually appealing and even manages to have a sense of humor occasionally. It’s not the ‘next best runner”, but it has certainly done the job of keeping me entertaining while I’ve been playing it.
