App Wrap Up (Weekend Edition, 17th September 2012)

By , on September 17, 2012

It's another Monday and it's time for another App Wrap Up! The column that shows off some iPhone games that have possible potential based solely on their trailers. If anything looks good and you decide to give one of these games a try, please let us know what you think in the comments. And now, on with the show!

Lookout - Blizzard (UNNYHOG Entertainment)

Get the snowball to the exit, while dodging fire, rockets, and ultimately, explosions! Full of meaty sound effects, as long as the snowball is responsive enough for some death defying manouvers, this looks like a blast.

Tasty Fish (Dime Studios Pty. Ltd.)

Hearing the title makes me think of that line from the Blowfish episode of The Simpsons. Yes, the art is pretty rudimentary here, but the reflexes required to save your swarm seems engaging enough, and just the fact you have a school of fish to lose gives you some leeway when things start getting hectic.

Little Conquest (BattleBit)

A realtime strategy game for the iPhone and iPad with some solid looking pathing, and small levels primed for conflict. Just with the layout, this looks like it will work better with the added screen space the iPad brings, but if the combat is solid enough, scrolling around won't be an issue.

City Stack (Twist Mobile)

A neat little puzzle game on creating isometric stacks to form a picture. The inclusion of a timer seems frustrating, and it might be a bit too slow paced for some, but it looks like one of those kinetic puzzle games you can play to give your mind a rest, as you're not really tasking your intelligence.

BLiP (Square Bear Games Ltd.)

A very simple platformer based on moving a square to the exit. You can only jump via trampoline pads in the level, and you need to collect all three stars to access the exit itself (an interesting choice). The sillouhette art style is simple yet overly so.

And that's it for another installment. Tune in next time for the App Wrap Up, and keep playing those games!
