Police Training on your iPhone

Coming soon to an iOS device near your face comes another tap shooter called Professional Police Trainer 2 (P.P.T.original here). You always wanted to draw down on a bad guy but let's face it, that would be scary. Plus you'd have to get up off the couch. Anyway, for all you crack shots of the P.P.T. realm, the updated version will be out soon, and you can get another taste of lawman adrenaline from the comfort of your Lazyboy!

Draco The Dragon App Review

image

DRACO is a 2D top-down scroller shooter game. The app starts off with a good animation about the back-story of the game. The graphics and the music fit well into the game. After the intro video, the player, for the first time, will enter his or her own name. After which the player picks their hardness, color of their dragon and after a brief introduction to the controls is shown, the user can start the game.

The rules are fairly simple - avoid the oncoming dragons/obstacles & their fire/shots. Tilt the device in in either direction to move your dragon (tilt iPhone to the right, the dragon moves to the right, etc.) and tap the screen to shoot.



Burst! Time Kill for 2012!

image

Looking for a time killer physics game this New Year's Eve while waiting for the ball to drop? Check out Burst!... Pretty simple concept. Swipe to shoot arrows at balloons. Even a monkey could play Burst! Not only would he play it, but he would love it probably, and maybe get the top score on Game Center. The game has some kind of backstory and special play modes, but I mean really...who cares? Shoot the darn balloons and move along to the next level, right? The monkey does not care why... I make joke now, but nevermind. Read on for the full press release DL below...



Review: Youda Survivor by G5 Games

image

Well, G5 Games has done it again.  Jane’s Zoo, Supermarket Mania 2 and Jack Of All Tribes were all excellent time management games, and I expected nothing less from Youda Survivor.  The reality, though, is that at some point one of these games just isn’t going to shine like the others.  Thankfully we haven’t reached that point yet.  This game is as addictive as the rest, and it already has me anticipating the next great G5 time management wonder.

What I played this week - Snow Fight!

image

This week, I really had a blast with Snow Fight, but I was not happy about the game offering up a few appetite-whetting levels, and slapping you with an in-app purchase to continue (not a big fan of in-app purchases)... I put a crowbar in my iTunes wallet and plunked down the fat 99 pennies required to unlock the full 40+ levels remaining (yes, quite the iTunes Scrooge). The first zone of 6 or so levels is gratis, but doubtful anyone will begrudge the additional expense of unlocking the others. Simple fun is priceless after all, and the game does deliver that...



Factor Samurai - Cut non-prime numbers down to size!

Back in my day when we used things like sliderules, protractors, and multiplication tables (had mine printed on a little cheat sheet), I remember thinking what a total drag mathematics were. I'd rather be outside playing kickball. If I would have had Factor Samurai, I would have jumped on my "times tables" like a shark eating a surfer (go shark)! If you got school kids mildly to severely uninterested in math, this is a clever way to get them interested. Read on for more review comments and info on the app...



FreeAppWall Review

image

The app called “Free App Wall” is easily the best one of its type which I’ve tried so far.  The point of this handy app is to find other apps which are not normally free but are for one reason or another.  This is often because the other apps are new or being promoted or something of this nature but the bottom line is this is the best way to find great apps for free that I’ve seen.



Best iPhone Games | iPhone Life Magazine

When searching for the best iPhone games, you can get lost in companies propaganda.  Articles like Top Ten FavoriteiPhone Games, can help to alleviate the stress.  The following snippets from articles can help you to decide what kind of game is better suited for you.

"Stinger Games' newly launched Stinger FoosballLeague takes a game that's already a step removed from reality into a truly virtual environment - topping as one of the best iPhone games.  Foosball, of course, is the table version of football or soccer.  With Stinger Foosball League, the field that was crammed into a table in a pub is now in your iOS device.  The premise sounds okay, but the execution is way cooler than it sounds.  That's because Stinger Foosball League is actually, well, cooler than actual foosball.  First of all, the 3D graphics and game physics are right on, putting this game at the forefront of console-style graphics on iOS.  Second of all, the view when playing real life foosball is… usually not that awesome. I'm sure there are people with foosball tables that are tricked out, but for most of us, they're usually a dingy affair.  But Stinger Foosball League hasn't been sitting in your uncle's basement for the past forty years.  Kick-ass flying cameras show off how much action there really is in a game known for being low-tech. And just to make it even more trippy, the ball leaves behind a golden light tail, kind of a comet-effect."

"The Universe of SPIRIT FORCE was inspired from the Japanese Samurai-era.  Discover an epic story giving you a social experience where players fight with monsters and collect Spirit Cards in order to save the world.  It places a core emphasis on player vs. player combat.  The player begins his journey as a member of the SPIRIT FORCE.  Battle with other players or clear the mission to get great treasure and rare card. Use crafting skills with the collected treasures in order to summon new Spirits.  Players can team up with friends and cooperate each other to fight against boss, unlock new rewards and new stages.  The most immersive and massively multiplayer online card game ever!"

Both of the previous two articles are on specific games, but perhaps you want a more comprehensive look on several games... The Free iPhone Games To Kick Off Your Summer articleis what you are looking for.
