After Angry Birds, what game should you get next?

image

Like millions of you, I have downloaded, enjoyed and even finished all the levels of Angry Birds, at least so far... more levels, please!  So what is a user to do?  Sure, Chillingo (which EA is buying) has released another Angry Birds version for Halloween and you should definitely get that.  And they also released Cut the Rope, another pick-up-and-play game with cute graphics.  But it's not the same in terms of controls or even orientation (landscape versus portrait).  Fortunately, with any successful app, there are other vendors stepping up to the plate.



Cut The Rope: The Game App that will dominate 2010

I was pretty shocked that no one has yet blogged here about the latest game app that has taken hold of my kids for the past few days and reportedly ‘sold 1 million apps in 10 days’.



Tap Disc on the App Store!

I will eventually get around to checking it out, but if you are into addictive, simple time-killers, Tap Disk looks like it might be a good one. Tap to collect flying disks and collect points and power-ups...Looks fun!



Land Air Sear Warfare HD Review

image

If you are looking for one of the best Real-Time Strategy (RTS) games for the iPad, look no further than Land Air Sea Warfare HD.  Graphics and sound combine with gameplay that in many ways is better than the original game that launched the RTS genre, Command & Conquer.



Fruit Ninja HD Game Review

image

Every so often, a game for the iOS comes along that captures that addictive "just one more round" quality to keep players locked to their devices well past bedtime.  Halfbrick Studios' Fruit Ninja is just such a game.

The objective of the game is as obvious as any classic arcade title.  Shoot (or in the case of Fruit Ninja, slash) the bad guys (in this case, fruit) while avoiding the bombs.  Increase the number and speed of targets and bombs with each progressive level.  Miss three targets and the game is over.



Land Air Sea Warfare HD Released for iPad!

This is one of my favorites for the year (see my mega-review here), and now available in HD for iPad! Stunning graphics in an already superb RTS equals, well...Land Air Sea Warfare HD!



Review: Buganoids by Backflip Studios

image

This is the perfect example of how to do a freemium game right.  I'm not saying the game itself is perfect, but it is a lot of fun.  And, nothing pops up every five seconds asking you to pay to remove the ads.  In fact, the first time I played the game I thought the ad banner was just the top part of the framework.  I didn't actually realize it contained ads.  If you want to get rid of them you just go into the options, push a button, and confirm that you don't want any more ads.  In fact, this is only the second game I've ever felt compelled to purchase IAP from.  So enough about that, on to the game itself.

The White House needs its erasers and calls upon U.S. Department of Puzzle Research agent Nelson Tethers to solve the mystery of why the supplier, the Scoggins Eraser Company, is unable to deliver them.



There's an App for that: Ultimate Frisbee

image

As the app store grows, apps are being developed to fill all areas of our life. From astronomy to hunting there's now an app for that. This is the first of what i hope will be a regular column looking at apps for niche markets that may surprise you. This first blog will look at a niche market that's near to my heart-- Ultimate Frisbee.


Ultimate is the fastest growing sport in America. For those of you who have never heard of ultimate, here is a brief description from the USA ultimate website.



Best iPad Games, Reviews, Free iPad Games

The best iPad games, reviews, and free iPad games are always hard to find, especially when you don't know where to start.  Tons of reviews on 'the game that must be played' are written right here on this page.  We are constantly looking for ways to improve and the article on the NBA 2K12, is just one example of what we do.

Here is a brief description of the article:  “In iOS world, there’s an App for everything, and everything has an App.  Until recently, the only exclusion was that of a true NBA game.  Well thanks to NBA 2K12, by 2K Sports, throwback fans of “The Hick from French Lick” and his more modern counterpart of “The Candy Man” now have their favorite teams and players in reach of both thumbs.  This is 2K sports first edition (in iOS format) for this #1 selling basketball game.  Did they do right by iOS users?  In short, “Yea baby”, they did.”

We try and keep the articles lively and informative.  Although not all of them are based on sports.  Skillz is one example that has become one of the most addictive and an overall fun game that has recently hit the market.  The concept matches many other popular music games that test your rhythm, tap speed, and ability to rock the turn tables.  It’s similar to Guitar Hero and Rock Band, but much more difficult which makes it appealing. 

Another key point in choosing the best iPad games are the graphics.  Shadowgun is a new game that is pressing the boundaries of the new graphic cards.  The linked article even has a video for you to see what it actually looks like.  It's a first person shooter that guides the gamer through an intense story line out in space.

All reviews, like the ones linked above, are the best iPad games that we can find.
