App Wrap Up (Week Ending 5th April, 2013) - iPad Edition

By , on April 5, 2013

Heya and hola dear readers. Over my time writing these App Wrap Ups, I have collected trailers for alternate versions of the article. Primarily it's focus is on iPhone games, but there are a host of iPad only games as well that get overlooked, and seeing as I have no iPhone trailers to work with this week, I thought I'd dig out out some of these links. Now especially for this first iPad segment, the trailers I'm about to show you are from last year, and some date back to at least mid 2012. This shouldn't matter because an interesting game is an interesting game, but I just thought I'd let you know. Ok then, let's look at some trailers for iPad only titles!


Octacube (Eyal revivo)

A puzzle game where you have to flick a cube to the exit, while collecting gems along the way. The presentation coupled with the crazy look of some of the larger levels create intriguing possibilities, and some good ol fashioned time spent puzzle solving!

Amazing Flying Machines (Red Ronin inc.)

The controls on this one look a bit unwieldy, but the premise coupled with the presentation make me interested in giving this a try. I enjoy games and films / TV with strange airships and this game is pretty much exactly that.

Paper Climb (Emoak)

There appears to be some nuance to the rock climbing mechanics in regard to the controls. That couple with the newspaper aesthetic and this could be either a fun or frustrating experience.

Touchline (James Frost)

A high score game where using both your fingers at either end of a line, you have to avoid all the obstacles by changing angle and length. Simple and unique, a great combination!

Help Volty (Tvndra Producties)

This trailer shows a lot but doesn't reveal much. It is very mysterious though, and in a good way. This seems to be an adventure / puzzle game with a steampunk world, with many puzzles being on the micro level with electronic insects. There's definitely an atmosphere here, and if the story and puzzles are engaging, it looks to be a winner for fans of the genre.

And that's it for this iPad only edition of the App Wrap Up. As always, if you've played any of these games or decide to take the plunge based on what you've seen here, tell us what you think in the comments. We'll see if I find enough iPhone trailers to have a regular update next week. If not, more iPad games! Till next time, happy gaming all!
