Even in an industry with such evocative and artful names as "Cut the Rope" and "Angry Birds," Desert Zombie: Last Stand may still qualify as one of the worst, most cliche video game names in history. That said, the game itself actually looks pretty cool, and the graphics are absolutely gorgeous.
Reisuke Ishida, the mind behind the iOS classic Space Invaders Infinity Gene (one of the first truly great iPhone games) has released a new game. It's called Groove Coaster, and it's a roller coaster of grooves.
Sharing music was easier in the days of boom boxes and giant hi-fis that filled a room with sound. Now our music -- and devices -- are more portable, which is awesome, but if you want to share your tunes with a buddy you're stuck sharing headphones or using a splitter (which keeps you tethered together) or listen via your device’s tiny built-in speaker. With MyStream, you can use Wi-Fi or Bluetooth to play the same songs on two devices.
In true Street Fighter form, the expansion to the extremely popular iOS game Street Fighter IV, Street Fighter IV Volt, has received an update that will give players another two characters to choose from.
Yes, it's true -- there are still people out there doing the AIM chatting thing or getting their Yahoo Chat on. We know, we know, it's hard for us to believe it too. But for those of us who have our benighted friends trapped in the late 90s, there is still hope. We can chat with them on our iOS devices and still manage to grab our Facebook friends and our Gmail folks. These may not be the one app to bind them but they come pretty close when you rock the multi-client instant messaging apps.
Most people use the camera on their iPhone or iPod touch for taking snapshots. But when you're ready to get artistic, Magic Shutter can help you do more. This $3 app lets you control the lens’s shutter and leave it on for longer than the usual split second, thereby creating interesting visual effects.
The cult hit, ultra-stylish adventure game from Amanita Design, Machinarium, will be getting an iPad version pretty soon, the developer announced today.
Machinarium is a point-and-click adventure game in the classic sense. You basically go around exploring the environments, solving puzzles and otherwise clicking on anything that could potentially have an action coded into it. It has been very well received by both fans and critics since its release in Fall 2009.
Want to fulfill your Kraftwerk fantasies with a $12 iOS app? iVoxel is cool little app that's deceptively modest at first glance -- it takes a few minutes to work through the menus and appreciate the powerhouse of voxel magic. But that power becomes less surprising when you consider that the technology is based on the Matrix vocoder from the same developer which is notably used by Kraftwerk among other well known names.
The App Store's finest work of art on the subject of being a horrendous all-destroying mega worm received an exciting new update today. The game will now allow you to wreak havoc, destroying all that you see...with a joystick!
