Hero Pop is a match-three puzzler that breathes life into a well worn genre. Since it's a free-to-play app, the game's addictive balloon popping does have its limits, and depending on your tolerance, your matching activities may be short-lived.
Find The Line is a puzzler which hangs its hat on beautiful illustrations and a mellow, meditative soundtrack.
Zombie High Dive is a physics based title from Chillingo, and having the undead splash through the waters is an intriguing concept. Whether you'll want to dive into this game, however, is an entirely different story.
Tiny City is the Groundhog Day of farming games, and depending on your love of repetition will either keep you at bay or whet your appetite. Since this app is free-to-play, the idea of constructing a metropolis out of a tiny town won't happen overnight unless you spend a bit of cash. Even with this annoying aspect at its base, Tiny City is part of my daily app play rotation.
Tanglers Blitz is a free-to-play app that is filled with colorful aliens that need to be collected by the touch of your fingers. It's a supremely easy game to master, and within seconds you'll understand the game's entire universe. Predictability can work its magic with certain titles, and with Tanglers Blitz a little bit can really go a long way.
Another Case Solved is free to play, and since it's a puzzle game the developers could have turned this game into a freemium mess. The good news is you can investigate a ton of cases without opening your wallet, and that's definitely a good thing.
Modern Command is a tower defense game that pits you against terrorists who are determined to destroy your military base. The good news is that it's a free-to-play experience, and you'll get a good enough taste of the app before deciding if you want to pay for the piper.
Director John Woo's trademark is his kinetic visual action style, as he usually litters his world with two-gun toting heroes and a plethora of doves. You'll get those touches with this blood soaked endless runner, and if you're a fan of Woo's cinematic ouevre this mobile release won't disappoint.
Hot Wheels World's Best Driver initially won me with one risky decision. Originally a console game, its journey to iOS can be only enjoyed by iPad users, so cutting the mobile market is a huge risk for the franchise. With Chillingo, this racer should easily cross the finish line with flying colors. That being said, the need for speed and a dependable brand name doesn't always guarantee a smooth ride.
With a black drenched title screen that gives a wink to DOS history, simian.interface offers up a subtly complicated promise. What you see is not exactly what you'll get, and within the simplest commands rests a multitude of depth. Chillingo is describing the game as a "spatial puzzler," but these words are just an entry way to a cerebral and viscerally enervating escapade.
