App Wrap Up (Weekend Edition, 11th February, 2013)

By , on February 11, 2013

Hey hey readers! It's time for yet another edition of your favourite regular feature on the site, the App Wrap Up! As always we're going to take a look at some trailers of released games that may have fallen under the radar. These games were chosen as while they may not have wide spread appeal, there is something about them that looks interesting. Let's get started!


Food Run HD (Pixels on Toast)

I dunno, there's just something about not only leading a parade of running food items through a level that amuses me, but the levels themselves look well designed with a nice sense of flow. Might be worth checking out for platformer fans.

Diibs Odyssey (Boxed Pig)

The whole flinging a character to safety concept is nothing new, and using the gravity of planets and stars to travel has become familiar as well. This combination of those ideas though looks like it could have something to offer.

Pentapuzzle (Skrubbeltrang & Platz Ltd)

You fit pentaminos in a pre-defined shape. Always a fun puzzle, but the zooming out animation combined with the tranquil music makes this game a possible purchase for puzzle fans.

Vubu (Don Muritz)

A native presentation wrapping small variations on the sliding puzzle (where tokens move together and you have to get them all to their respective resting places). A lot of these modes look quite fiendish too, so this might be one for those who love a challenge.

Tapforss (Like a Crocodile Game Studios)

While this has gorgeous landscapes and accompanying music, the gameplay looks like it might be frustrating, especially if you have to consistently tap to guide the orb through all the hazards. However, if the controls allow for intuitive travel this could make for a unique challenge - we'll keep an eye on this one.

And that's it for another installment. This one was meant to go up Friday but a backend snafu ate the post, so you get some interesting trailers to watch on a Monday. Aren't you lucky! As always, if you've tried one of these games, or reading this causes you to buy anything you see here, tell us what you think of it in the comments. Till next time, happy gaming all!
