App Wrap Up (Week Ending 17th May, 2013) - iPad Edition

By , on May 17, 2013

Hey hey readers! It's Friday, and that means it's time for another App Wrap Up! I don't have too many iPhone selections for you this week, so I thought i'd dip into the well, and once again focus this article on iPad releases. As always, I will show you a bunch of trailers, comment on them, and if you like what you see, you can follow the link and grab the game for yourselves. Let's get started!


Gigabattle (Mego Ltda.)

All the cats of Earth have been abducted to create a giant hairball super weapon. Odd to say the least. This looks like sort of a reverse shmup mixed with a bit of real time strategy. Unique and odd enough to warrant a look i'd wager.

Monsters vs Pirates (Dreamfire Ltd)

Part tower defense, part Monster Rancher? Build you base, grow your monsters, use those monsters as your towers to destory incoming pirate swarms. Interesting, and with jaunty music to boot!

Planet Zoom (Info Tech Studio srl)

This was picked more for its world and whimsical 30s animation throwback visual style. It's some form of tower defense or shoot em up, but there's a lot going on, and working things out might be half the fun.

Revolve (Jassa Amir-Lang)

It's Breakout with two paddles around a circular playing field... mostly without bricks. That's all you can really say from that trailer to be honest.

Shotdot (X Production s.r.o.)

It's a turn based shooting game with dots. They make a pretty nice pop sound as well. This looks like it'd be a lot of fun to play with a friend, and if you use your imagination, you can pretend you're battling on the microscopic level!

And that's it for another week. As always, if you have played any of these games, or took the plunge and want to comment about your experience, please do so in the comments. Aside from that, enjoy your gaming, and i'll see you next week!

I like Gigabattle the best. :D

It's very difficult in Horde and Arcade mode, the pace is... Well, too fast to keep up with most of the time, but it's still fun. I gave it a 3/5.
