If you’re traveling this weekend or next week, you might want to bring Eat Well Business Travel along. The app helps you to eat well while you’re out in the world in various airports and other countries, and make good decisions about the snacks you bring along. We’ve also got a couple of quality games to keep you busy while you’re traveling. R-Tap US is a mix of rhythm games and the endless running genre, while iPad-only Mutant Storm is great-looking top-down shooter.
Eat Well Business Travel (iPhone, iPad) $1.99
When out on the road or bouncing from airport to airport, it can be hard to eat well. Fast food and restaurants don’t always offer the healthiest of options. That’s what Eat Well Business Travel is for. The app is designed to make it easy to find the right things to eat while traveling, no matter where you are in the world or what your options might be.
Eat Well is basically a fast-paced nutritionist in your pocket, giving you quick tips for the kind of food you might encounter in places like airports. It’ll give you tips on what’s best to eat and what you might want to avoid while you’re there. It also includes tips on foods you can bring with you when you travel, which are both portable and nutritious.
R-Tap US (iPhone, iPad) Free
Mix the endless running genre with the rhythm genre and you get R-Tap US. At the start of the game, you choose a character and start taking her into various levels, where you’ll need to execute certain touchscreen actions in rhythm with the music you hear. The actions are pretty simple – swipe and down or tap when prompted. The more actions you hit in a row with proper timing, the more points you can rack up.
R-Tap US includes a bunch of different game modes you can unlock, as well as a few free songs to play when you download it. It’s a free-to-play title, though, so you’ll need to purchase more songs in order to keep going. Luckily, R-Tap just got a big update that brought in more songs and albums to give you plenty of rhythm with which to tap along.
Mutant Storm (iPad) $2.99
Formerly an Xbox LIVE Arcade title, Mutant Storm has hit the iPad with all the force you’d expect. The top-down shooter has players flying around 3-D arenas, avoiding enemies and taking them out as quickly as possible to rack up points. The more enemies you take out without getting hurt, the more points you’ll earn. But take damage and you’ll lose your multiplyers.
Mutant Storm includes 89 arena levels to play through. It also runs at 60 frames per second on the new iPad, which is pretty impressive and similar to its performance on an Xbox 360. Mutant Storm includes Game Center support, which provides achievements to earn and leaderboards on which players can track their scores.
