App Wrap Up (Tuesday Edition, 23rd October 2012)

By Dave Flodine, on October 23, 2012

Hey hey everyone! It's a Tuesday, and while we don't normally have an App Wrap Up today, my list of interesting games to showcase is bursting at the seams, so let's get started! As always, our impressions and choices are based solely on the trailers. Got it? Good. Let's go!

Spectrum Run (Tobias Hagemann)



Kind of cut from the same cloth as last week's reviewed Polara, this is an endless runner based on changing to the appropriate colour to make it through the obstacles. It adds an extra level of reaction based thinking to deal with and due to this, could turn into a great challenge or horrendous frustration.

Fruit Rocks (Ad Maiora Studio)



Watching the trailer, i get the importance of rocks in this physics based destruct-a-thon, but the significance of fruit eludes me. Looks like a good dose of playable mayhem though, and there's dinosaurs!

Stupid Zombies 2 (GameResort LLC)



Unless we're talking about later Romero films, zombies aren't exactly known for being bright and on the ball, so the title of stupid seems a little redundant. None the less, I really enjoy the look of the ricochet bullet mechanics. It adds some clever ways to complete levels, and that little element of luck that can really spice up an experience. Even if it does contain guns and zombies.

King Cashing: Slots Adventure (Productions Multimage)



The idea of slot machine combat in an RPG sounds kind of silly when you first hear it, but if you think on it for a bit, is it really that different from rolling dice or generating random numbers for hits and misses behind the scenes? At least here you can see the outcome of each turn. It doesn't look like there's too much longevity in the battles, but it is indeed a fun spin on things.

Wild Runner Adventure (Fantage.com Inc)



We start with a runner, we end with a runner. This has a very cute charm and art style to it. You do have to wonder about the uncanny resemblance to Nintendo's pink puffball Kirby though. You have to be weary of in-app purchase design in games like these as well.

And that's it for now. Look for another edition before the week is out, and if you've tried any of the games here, let us know what you thought of them in the comments. Till next time, enjoy your gaming folks!
