Though seemingly as fluffy as the clouds you'll weave around, Whale Trail delivers a seriously slick new App Store addiction – one that finds you guiding a flying whale through angry-looking storms and spectacular technicolor backdrops.
There are already so many tools in OS X for helping visually impaired users that we initially scratched our collective head at Zoom It, an application that lets you magnify parts of your screen with a customizable loupe.

Classified ads have come a long way from the old newspaper listings, becoming their own entity dominated by giants like Craigslist and eBay. Unfortunately for those Goliaths, San Diego-based Barefoot Solutions has unveiled its mobile market David equivalent: Antengo.
First released in 2005 for consoles and PC, Psychonauts charmed the pants off of many gamers with its eccentric brand of humor and fantastical settings—but its impact was barely felt at retail, and the lack of sales success likely killed the chances of a quick Mac port. Luckily, the action platformer became a cult favorite, and with the publishing rights back in the hands of creator Double Fine, it’s finally time for Mac gamers to experience this one-of-a-kind adventure via the Mac App Store or Steam.
America has been invaded by a foreign military alliance, and things "from sea to shining sea" are getting pretty hairy.

With no built-in goals besides achievements, it's up to you to create your own objectives.
Unlike the vast majority of color-matching puzzle games, the play mechanics that power Fractal: Make Blooms Not War may not be readily apparent the first time you play it, nor does the game offer up a dead-simple intro tutorial.

Social microblogging apps are where it's at, but most are tailored to a specific service, and remembering which one to use can be a bit of a pain. Oink is nothing short of a game changer.
