Appolicious user GingerRun told us about the game Ginger Run by Oleg Kapitonov. It’s an engaging story of a Gingerbread derby in which you play as the Gingerbread Man, trying to run as far as he can while avoiding all the food-based obstacles in his path and outrunning his opponents. Along the way there are coins to collect, great power-ups to purchase and the ability to compete against your friends or even for your country.

Bit Blast Pro ($0.99)
Thanks to Appolicious user CharlesLavigne for letting us know about Bit Blast Pro. It’s a fast-paced pick-up-and-play arcade game in which players are challenged to “blast” chains of game pieces, called bits, off the screen. By creating more links, more bits can be blasted and higher rewards earned. Bit Blast Pro features a groovy soundtrack and a dynamic learning curve. It should appeal to both casual puzzle game fans and those looking for a quick gaming fix. With its native HD Retina graphics, it’s a universal app for both iPhone and iPad.
