Finger Balance lets you virtually balance a ball using a stick and your two thumbs. You hold the phone in landscape position and you tilt your thumbs to direct the ball to the destination. It sure sounds great but I was not satisfied for a few reasons. The main reason is that the thumbs take too much out of the screen and I believe this game is only suitable for an iPad and it would make ...

Ships approach from the left and carry on to the right side of the screen, as you progress more ships appear and it gets harder to target them. The gameplay itself in concept form is fun but falls short due to its ...

Im not a fan of racing games on the iPad/iPhone but as soon as I saw this game featured on the App Store I just had to get it. Seeing all those SEGA characters just woke up the kid in me and a flood of Nostalgia just came flooding through. Dramatic, I know, but I couldn’t help myself. I immediately clicked “purchase” without a second thought and as I anxiously awaited the install bar ...

Zookeeper is a game developed by a Japanese company called Kitseretsu. I LOVE that name. The fact that its a Japanese game is enough reason for me to love it but let me explain why the actual app is worthy to the general public. Zookeeper is not a new game. I was originally introduced to the game when I bought the Nintendo DS version and I loved it from the start. The gameplay isn’t ...

Feed Me Oil, as the name implies is feeding but with a twist. In this unique puzzle game, your objective is simple, direct oil flow from a broken pipe into the mouth of a monster. While interesting in concept, the game plays well but has a number of issues I thought could have improved the experience. During the course of the game, levels get tougher and you get more tools to use in order to feed ...

The game is a physics based side scroller with a twist, the best way to describe it is that if feels like the whole game takes place ...

You pull/drag with your finger to stretch it and make it stick from one point to another, collecting orbs and moving from one point to another. Of course this is ...

Bumpy Road is a game developed by Simogo. The app was featured as “iPad App of the Week”, so I decided to check it out. The story revolves around a couple who decide to take a road trip like they used to during their younger years. It’s similar to other 2D side scrollers but heres the catch, instead of controlling the car you manipulate the surrounding terrain to push the car in the direction you ...
