May The Force Be With You – Angry Birds Star Wars HD – iPad App Review

I’m about to admit something that may cause you to question everything you’ve ever known about me. I don’t like Angry Birds. There, I said it. I feel liberated. It is a dark secret to keep when you are an app reviewer, but I don’t like Angry Birds. That is the first thing people ask me about when I tell them what I do for a living.

Physics-based games like that had already been around for a while, and frankly, I was bored with the genre by the time those red birds came around.

Explore A Creepy Castle In Monster Crew – iPad Game Review

Monster Crew, from BonusXP, is a fun endless platformer that uses one-touch combat. Your goal is to play as Frankie the monster, smashing everything in site to get points that will be used for bonus cards that will upgrade your character.

I think the first thing you’ll notice about this great little platformer is its graphics. Monster Crew has some impressive graphics, and both the characters and the backgrounds look really great.

Create a Stars and Striped Themed Photo Album with ScrapPad – iPad App Review

A few weeks ago, I reviewed ScrapPad, which is a fun and easy to use app that allows users to create digital scrapbooks with a wide variety of themes.

Create Words to Win in Spell Rift – iPad Game Review

Word games are one of my favorite genres in the App Store, so I’m always excited when a great new title comes out. Last week saw the introduction of the ultra fun multiplayer word game Letterpress, which almost overshadowed another great word game release: Spell Rift.

Unlike Letterpress, Spell Rift is designed to be played in single player mode. Your goal, of course, is to create words from a grid of letters on the screen, but Spell Rift really spices up this typical word puzzle gameplay with specific goals to reach and plenty of different tile types.

O.K., so maybe Disney is going just a little bit overboard with licensing of toys, games and apps based on Wreck-it Ralph. Maybe you’re getting sick of the hubbub and you don’t want to see one more bit of flotsam about Disney’s newest animated movie. Well, you’ll be happy to know that Hero’s Duty doesn’t give a single hint that it is remotely related to the video game hero of another world.

This comic is based on an origin story of the hardcore video game from Wreck-it Ralph. The characters are in the middle of a battle with mechanical bugs that can’t be stopped.

Creatorverse: So Many Possibilities, Such a Steep Learning Curve – iPad App Review

After reporting on Linden Lab’s first foray into iOS, I was anxious to tryout this physic-based, sandbox-style game.

After spending a few minutes playing with the game, I was utterly confused. I created a bunch of random shapes but they had no meaningful relationship. While I’m not mechanically inclined by nature, I thought my native intelligence would be enough to learn how to use the app. Was I ever wrong. It was time to look for outside help.
