App Wrap Up (Midweek Edition, 22nd August 2012)

By , on August 21, 2012

How's it going Appspy readers? It's time for yet another App Wrap Up installment!  As always we're gonna post and comment on some trailers of games that look interesting, but of course all we haven't tried them ourselves. That's for our readers to do if they see anything they like (and do please tell us about it in the comments). Let's start things off!

Window Warrior (Gambit)

Kind of like Fruit Ninja with planks of wood, and instead of slicing, boarding up windows. Ok, so it's not really like Fruit Ninja. Board the windows from encroaching monsters by hammering planks across them. There's even a nail shotgun!

Missile Storm (Vjenceslav Nadinic)

Yes it's a Missile Command knock off, but the presentation is solid enough to warrant a look. Maybe i just have a soft spot for Missile Command.

Rush City (Acceleroto)

Now that the App Store is full of Temple Run clones, it's nice to see an endless runner more reminiscent of Canabalt or Monster Dash. Quite a nice city scape too.

Goofy Gallerist (Matteo Diterlizzi)

Not all game on the App Wrap Up are fairly new releases. Some are just interesting looking games that fell through our radar. An alien has caused mischief by screwing up priceless works of art and its up to you to put the pictures right through vertical and horizontal re-shuffling. With different wings of art eras,and plenty of famous art, this is a great little puzzle game for those who appreciate paintings.

Tuk's Word Blocks (GandA Studios)

Nothing much to look at visually but the idea behind this word game is quite intriguing. Pop letters on the board to make as many words as possible in as many directions as possible. Points are gained and lost for using certain letters, and there's a four letter word and five letter word mode. Also, the use of classical music adds a certain ambiance to everything.

And that's it for another installment! Keep on reading and i'll keep writing. Till next time!
