App Wrap Up (Weekend Edition, 26th November, 2011)

By , on November 26, 2012

Hey hey folks. It's Monday and summer is really started to hit hard over here. How can I tell? The hayfever has begun! As i try to ignore my dripping nose and itchy eyes, here are some games from the App Store that may have fallen under the radar. Based on their trailers, we're gonna take a look at them, and if you like what you see, well you can always click the app store link and give the game a go! Let's begin.

Real Boxing (Vivid Games S.A.)



Maybe it's memories of Mike Tyson's Punch Out, but I have a soft spot for boxing games. Now this one looks fun enough, but in the end, that all comes down to the controls. If they're well executed, players will definitely be in a pugilist paradise.

Total Recoil (Eiconic Games Finland Oy)



Kind of looks like a cross between a twin stick shooter, and Cannon Fodder. If you want your fill of explosive cartoon carnage, this looks like a good outlet.

Replanet (taktek Games)



Besides atmospheric audio and visual presentation, this game also has a Marble Madness feel to it, so with tight controls, i forsee an immersive, enjoyable experience.

14px (Drummer Games)



Another one of these visually sparse, tough as nails, bite sized platformers. What makes this one intriguing is the amount of wall hugging afforded to you by the snake your control. Could make for some tense and rewarding platforming.

Bunny Leap (John Carlyle)



You don't see too many games emulating the mechanics of Q*bert. Whether that's a good or bad this is up to opinion, but this is a game that follows it pretty closely, while allowing for some interesting level design.

And that's it for another installment. I hope you all have a great week, and we'll see you next time on the App Wrap Up!
