Tap Disc is a a semi-quirky tap game featuring the challenge of rounding up bouncing and flying disks, but with the added twist of having to time and place your taps at just the right moment and screen spot. I warn would-be tappers that this game is not easy to master quickly (IMO), but presents unique, tap-elicious gameplay that is both pleasing to the eye, and engaging enough to keep you coming back for more. Read on for the full review...
Tilt to Live recently got an update that includes Game Center support and Retina-worthy graphics. You can grab the game (if you aren't already an addict) here. To learn more about this addictive and award winning game, see my Top App picks article here... I am loving the sharper game screens even as I write this. Shoot, no new power-ups though..! Well, it's rumored there might be another present in time for X-mas!
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.
I had the opportunity to play the PC version of Mushroom Age briefly at one point, but I actually jumped into it in the middle of the game to pass a section for someone. Now that I’ve had the chance to go back and play it from the beginning on my iPod Touch I’m finding that I really like the game. The story is quirky and keeps you wondering. The characters are amusing, especially when you get to talking to creatures you never thought you’d have a conversation with. The actual meat of the game is a combination of hidden objects, puzzle solving and mini-games. Overall it’s a well rounded package that delivers the goods quite well.
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.
