Addictive fun!

This is a fun game that requires some strategy. The only bummer is clearing the levels too quickly and having to wait for updates to get new ones. Fun game!

I love Osmos, and now I don't have to lug around my iPad in order to play! This game is my favorite of the year! I recommend it for everyone.

Not only the gameplay is really good, but the design of the game is just perfect. There are enough ways to play, and expansions are coming. Even for the people who don't know Carcassone, this game is a must have.

That ball's outta here!

As a sports nut, I've always been hesitant to purchase sports related apps. Usually I find them disappointing at best. Then came HR Battle 3D. The UI is phenomenal and the game play is very realistic. Love the Gold Ball Accumulation to get better equipment and gear. We're working on a baseball derivative 3D game, so this was amazingly helpful from a functionality standpoint. 2 THUMBS WAY UP!

Equine vs. Swine = Divine

At first I thought this was going to be lame. BUT... That couldn't be further from the truth. Board after board of silly and serious physics, great illustration and awesome demolition strategy make this a WINNER, WINNER pork dinner. Can't wait for the next update!

Cuteness Win

This game has everything I want in a game. Not only is it a problem solving type game but it wins in cuteness and steampunkiness.

You have a little steampunk cannon that shoots rag dolls at a target. The target is moved behind obstacles or in some way made more difficult to shoot. You have to adjust your rag doll speed and trajectory to get to the target. Sometimes you have to shoot a ton of rag dolls to get something to move.

Either way if you love steampunk, love problem solving games, love all things cute this game is for you.

Fruit Ninja

Slice and dice fruit-Ninja Style! It seems easy at first, but the levels get harder as you continue. This is one of my favorite Ninja Games.

Great game

This game looks and sounds great, and has a realistic feel to it. The sound effects are fun, and the slow-mo showing the last point scored is amusing. This is one of those games that can help you pass the time in a waiting room or while on hold, or occupy you when you're not quite sleepy enough to fall asleep. It looks great on the iPhone 4 (looks great on the iPod Touch too, though).

Fun! Addicting!

I love Scrabble, and this great networking version of the game lets you play against random strangers over the internet or with people you already know. I have played this game every day since I was introduced to it last month. I play it on my iPod Touch, which has been upgraded to 4.0. I have had up to 5 games going simultaneously (though I'm sure others have more).

USEFUL FEATURES
Because it allows push notifications, the app notifies me that it's my turn with a little audio "trill" and a badge showing the number of games awaiting my input. A chat box allows me to leave messages for my opponent like "Great word!" or "Drats, I have horrible letters this round!" or even, "Sorry I haven't played since yesterday- had a busy day!" Another useful feature is a rematch button that allows me to immediately start a new game with the same opponent.

GLITCHES
I have two main complaints about this game: one involves server problems which cause the game to crash on occasion. During these crashes which seem to happen about once a month, the game is unavailable for what seems like a few hours (It's hard to tell, since I only return to the game at my convenience to see if it's back up). Also, it seems the server is updated every few weeks, rendering the game unavailable for an hour or more. Other glitches may or may not be server related; after I upgraded the iPod to 4.0, several of my apps (third party and native) began to act strangely, so I'm not sure how much of the sporadic slow-loads or crash-while-loading occurrences are due to the upgrade or the app itself.

Another problem with this game that is more annoying than those glitches are the players who either don't have time to play, lose interest, or disappear for mysterious reasons. I would love for this game to offer players a chance to set the number of days between plays so that the game is automatically forfeited by the player who does not make a move within a set amount of time. I cannot stand to look at games 22 days old that I cannot terminate or resign because it's not my turn!

FUN STUFF
One of the fun things about the game for this Scrabble lover is the number of points given to letters. Some letters that are only 1 point in Scrabble have more points in Words. And maybe it's my imagination, but it seems a little easier to come up with huge-point words in here than in Scrabble. I've found that I can never let my guard down because my opponent might come up with a 75 point word and leave me scrambling!

So, I obviously love Words With Friends. I even like the corny name. The frustrations I've listed in no way make me to want stray from the game- it's that good! But those problems do cost the game a ratings point, so I give it a 4 out of 5. By the way, if you are looking for opponents, players list their usernames in the Facebook fan club for this game in order to find people to play against. That's how I found one of my most formidable opponents. In fact, it's my turn now...

  • App review for Angry Birds
  • Posted by gravesy July 27, 2010
  • Recommended for Gamers or Parents

I'm not a big game application user, but definitely appreciate the brainless distraction from time to time. Especially in a day and age we are becoming increasingly desensitized to violence, I am partial towards things that do not have guns, knifes, or fighting involved (Duck Hunt excluded!).

I'm also someone who likes to "figure things out" first, before reading the directions. Angry Birds was pretty intuitive, though good to know about the zoom in/out function starting out. (Pinch fingers together/apart to figure out what you're aiming at.)

There is a Lite version to try for free. Wouldn't say it's a must-have nor would I have paid more than .99 for it. But it is fun from time to time.

Sudoku 2

I like apps like this because I knew of Sudoku, but I didn't know how to play it. So, I just downloaded this app. It's a good intro and it's free! The app is great, but I don't think I'll become an avid Sudoku player. Just not my style.

Tap fish is amazing

  • App review for Tap Fish
  • Posted by noahbobby July 23, 2010
  • Recommended for Animal Lovers

Tap fish is my favorite app of all time. Forget my curated list, Tap fish beats any app in the app store. Tap fish is a freemium but you can beat the game without paying a penny. Use coins earned by feeding your fish, cleaning your tank and stuff like that to buy fish, new tanks, aquarium decorations and more. Use fish bucks to get super rare fish like my personal favorite the world cup fish (no longer available), food bricks for when your on vacation without your Iphone. Fish can die but you can bring them back to life with a fish buck. Remember fish die when they are not fed for two days. Download Tap fish now. Trust me I'm a level seven aquarium owner I know this stuff.

I LOVE THIS GAME!!!

I was recently at a party at a bar and we ended up playing air hockey and it reminded me of how much fun and physical this game really is! We had a blast and loved it. So then when I discovered this Free Glow Hockey GAME WOW I was blown away again! This game RAWCKS it glows, has effects, the computer is challenging, the graphics, sound, it is a really fun and great game very colorful and visual. It captures all the fun aspects of what makes air hockey fun! BUT this is like a TRON version if they played Air Hockey in the movie TRON this is what it would be like! ENJOY!

SUPER FUN

Flick Kick is a soccer game that has you “flicking” the ball toward a goal, or into targets. In the arcade version (my favorite), you have to flick past defenders and sometimes a goalie that is on a fixed path. The angles and defensive gets more difficult as you move forward, and you have to learn how to use english to bend the ball into the net.

It's simple, but insanely addicting!
