Latest iphone games blogs
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’.
Mani Golf is an interesting game. Some might consider it an overly simple golf game with whacked out courses. Personally, I look at it as a physics puzzle game under the guise of a whacked out golf game. Whatever your perspective is, there’s no question that Mani Golf is fun, crazy and at times quite challenging. You’ll not hear the word “fore” uttered from the main character’s mouth, but be prepared for some zany comments as you attempt to conquer 36 holes on two insane courses.
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!
Not too long ago I previewed this fun new casual game called Pig Shot. Well, now it’s in the App Store for you to purchase so I thought I’d give it a more thorough review. Of course, the irony is that the game is rather simple (hence the term “casual”), and I really kind of covered it all in my preview, at least in a nutshell. Still, I’m sure I can find a few more words to say about it, so here’s my look at the game Pig Shot.
I don’t go for the “farting is fun” application genre on my iPod Touch. I think it’s silly and juvenile, and just further crowds the App Store so that good games don’t get noticed. For that matter, I’m not big into the defecation appreciation games as a whole, but something about Pigeon Squadron intrigued me. I’m not sure if it’s because at its heart Pigeon Squadron is really just another target bombing game where the weapon of choice happens to be bird feces, or what drew me in to wanting to try the game. Well as it turns out, despite the fowl droppings premise, Pigeon Squadron is actually a rather entertaining game. It’s also quite challenging, so don’t think you’re going to just coast through this defacing experience with a gold medal for no effort. Are you ready to join the pigeon army?
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.
Content, images and more from the animated series. Full Press info follows with links, etc. "Mumbai, Thursday, 23rd September 2010: Jump Games, a leading International developer and publisher of entertainment content for mobile devices, today, announced the world wide launch of the Little Krishna app, a highly entertaining app for the iPhone & iPad."
Crosswords are great time-killers, especially when travelling. I have not tried this one out, but Crossword 4X4, developed by a small 2-man team, is available for free in the app store, so go grab it here.
In the next couple of weeks Nexx Studio will hopefully be releasing Pig Shot, a great casual game for the iPhone / iPod Touch. Here's a brief look at what you can expect...
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.
