I’m a big fan of overhead racing games, and because I remember the days when the NES reigned supreme I can appreciate things like “old school” graphics, as long as they are done well. Like so many genres on the App Store, however, there are enough games of this type that you have to really do something different to stand out. Retro Racing’s biggest problem is that it really doesn’t, and beyond that it has a couple of issues that actually detract from the fun factor. I think the game is a nice start, but it might be a little too retro even for my retro tastes.
The call my name app is a great new way to not only organize your contacts so they are easy to find and use, but also find the phone number of just about anyone or any business you want. First, when you open up the app it will have all your contacts from your phone all loaded in and easy to find. You can use the built in search function to quickly find people by their first name or last name, which makes it a lot easier than just scrolling through like you have to on the normal phone list.
Gameday, Inc. has presented gamers with a brand new adventure game goody in the App Store. Help Purple is a cleverly constructed magical problem solving adventure that is chock-full of charm.
The flipCharge emergency battery was introduced by Scoche in Feb. (They also have another version called the flipCharge burst). This battery pack is an 1800 mAh unit.
It’s designed for iPods and iPhones, with its integrated flip out PIN connector.
Oh My Nuts is a game app which is similar in many ways to angry birds where you have to launch something across the screen attempting to hit an object. In this game you are shooting a squirrel (out of the mouth of a pig) at a series of three stars with an acorn at the landing point. For each level you need to shoot the squirrel at the correct angle to get all three stars and land in the proper place to collect the nut.
If you've been looking for a game that will keep the kids occupied; then Bam! Jr. is what you have been looking for. This particular game is fast paced, practicing colors, and really stimulates the brain with optical illusions. In other words, you have to be pretty quick to win this game. So, what is the overall object?
The new iAlbums app was designed to bring back the experience of buying more than just a song when you purchase music. In the past when you purchased music it would typically come with the CD (or tape or record) along with a bunch of information about the song and the artist. Since people began using programs such as iTunes to download their music they no longer got any of these extras. They just get the song to play in their mp3 player. While the music is the primary reason people like purchasing songs, it is much more enjoyable when they get the full experience.
For starters, this isn’t another Angry Birds or Bejeweled clone, so that’s a bonus. Twist & Catch is actually a nifty little puzzle game with a bit of a… well, twist to it. There are plenty of levels, and with a three diamond ranking system you probably won’t beat the game in an afternoon. Be warned, though, that you will get hooked and quite possibly want to chuck your device at a wall sometimes.
The Vikersund ski flying app is a simple game where you play as a skier who is attempting a ski jump. You tap to begin skiing down the hill and at the right moment you tap the screen to jump. The goal is to get as far as possible during your jump. You can play either single player or against someone. Single player you have to beat scores which are computer generated, of course for multi-player you are going against your friend.
