Magic Orbz is a game which was very popular on the Play Station 3 platform and has now been ported over to mobile devices. To play the game you have to throw and bounce balls through the different levels to break all the blocks before you run out of lives. The game seems simple at first, but as the levels get progressively more difficult you’ll find that it can become quite challenging.
Slenderman: Unknown Chronicles is one of a few games or apps on iTunes related to the Slender horror genre. The legend is of a tall, slender man that appears in the background of old photographs that include small children. Evidence of kidnappings surround these events, and the Slenderman is purportedly able to stretch his arms and torso to extreme lengths to capture his quarry. The game is sort of like an iOS version of Blair Witch Project (if anyone remembers that)! Ice Riders, a decidedly upbeat, platform-like snowboard simulation combines custom course design with tricky game physics to create a unique, chilly and fun time-killer...

Yatzius Rex is a fun “Yahtzee” simulator that actually takes the classic dice game a step further. To start with you can play in the classic Yahtzee mode which allows each player to take one turn which is up to three rolls of the dice. There are five dice in all and you're looking to get a wide range of different results in order to fill out your entire score card. You can build up points by getting the maximum possible score for each section.

There was a time when “playing bat and ball” meant your kids were probably out getting a bit of exercise. Nowadays it could simply indicate that they are sampling the latest variant of the classic Arkanoid. Mechanics wise there’s no question that Magic Orbz pays homage to such games of old, but the environments and some of the power ups really give it a fresh feel. Don’t get too laid back while you’re playing, though, or the challenge of the last level set will really smack you in the face.
Sometimes a simple maze game where the main goal is just to get out of each level can actually be entertaining, as long as the game is constructed well. My big concern with Little Labyrinths was that it was going to be too easy since you basically trace your way out of each maze with your finger. It turns out that with the right game play mode this is not only challenging but can get quite addicting. Thankfully Little Labyrinths has 6 game play modes to choose from, and in the right combination these can be rather rewarding. Just make sure that you have a “big kid’s” game to quickly switch to when someone wants to know what you’re doing.
Looking for virtual wintertime fun this holiday, check out Ice Riders or Snow Fight (reviewed last winter season on my blog here), both from Sauce Digital. Ice Riders is a simple way to practice snowboarding tricks without breaking major bones, and as a bonus, you design the course! Snow Fight is soon to get an update, so you might wait a bit before grabbing that one. Both are great time killers for the days when you wish you could be out there on the slopes, instead of, well, stuck inside playing games!!.... Read on for the full PR!
Boulder Dash is an interesting game which is simple in concept, but difficult to master. The idea of the game is not new in that you’re controlling a character in a 2D world where you have to find gems by walking through an underground area. You can dig through sand to explore new areas, push round rocks to crush enemies or allow you to get to the other side of them. There are other tops of rocks which you can’t dig through so you’ll have to explore your way around them.
This week I played 3 awesomely cool games at the $1.99 level and below...Galactic Phantasy Prelude is a space shooter RPG in the same class of game as Galaxy on Fire 2 (SD version recently went free and hit #1 in nine countries). Atomic Frogs, a physics puzzler that requires deft timing and aim to launch your frogs through the various obstacles. Last is a free to play shooter called Dead Trigger, which brings the joy of shredding Zombies to iPad in exquisitely detailed apocalyptic strokes. So, without further adieu, let the WIPTW game review madness commence!....
