App Wrap Up (Weekend Edition, 20th August 2012)

By , on August 20, 2012

How are you all enjoying your Monday? Wow, what an unenthusiastic response. Well i don't really blame you, but perhaps having a look at some intertesting iPhone games might cheep you up a little. As always we're basing our impressions on the trailer only. We don't know if the game's hold up on their own, but if you decide to give one of these a try, please let us know what you think in the comments. All right, let's get to it!

The Dizzy Dragon (Rebel Dwarf SA)

Guide the dragon towards the sun, and avoid all the other obstacles. I guess dragons don't have the problem that Icarus had, huh? It looks like controlling the dragon might be a bit of a hassle, or at least that's where the challenge might lie.

Monster Geeks (JLS Co. Ltd.)

The gameplay only kicks in at about the forty second mark on the video, but it looks like a fun little head-to-head castle defence game without the castle defence, and a pre-selected party with assigned roles. Instead of buying units with coins, you use abilities with mana.

Unfed Undead! (Logan Sease)

It's Hungry Hungry Hippos with zombies. Really, that's about all i can say. It's good to see that there still are interesting game ideas being put forward with this overused horror trope.

Letter Slider (Scott Stanchak)

It's a letter find game mixed with a sliding puzzle. I like this concept cause if i can see a word i really want to make, i can just rearrange the tiles. With this new found power i bet you that suddenly the number of words i really want to make dwindles. Things often work that way.

4 in a 3d Row (NEONFIVE STUDIO)

Connect 4 in the third dimension is not a new concept, but despite the unfortnate name, 4 in a 3D Row has decent enough presentation to warrant a look if you like digital representations of board games (especially ones that are difficult to pull off in our analogue world).

And that's another edition of the App Wrap Up sorted. Keep those submissions coming and chances are we'll have another update sometime this week. Till next time!
