Atypical Games wowed us with iPad favorite Sky Gamblers and has done it again with Battle Supremacy. Not only does this game have the most realistic open world environment currently available on iOS with wind blowing in the grass and animals scurrying out of the way, it is also good old fashion explosive fun.

If you can’t make it out to compete in a paintball tournament this weekend, then perhaps Paintball Pro from Very Nice Studio could be on your list of alternative activities. With all of the hundreds of thousands of apps on the App Store I was a little surprised that there weren’t many other paintball games available, and this really does appear to be the first exciting paintball action game to be released.
There seems to be a flurry of app releases going on right now and I am very happy to see LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga become available for the iPad. I am a huge fan of the constantly growing number of Lego video games and I believe that the iPad is a perfect environment for them. LEGO Star Wars is another great addition to your iOS app collection and I know you’ll enjoy hours of fun in the Star Wars universe.
People think of the craziest things and sometimes the silliest concepts work very well as games. Angry Birds is an example, where the plot makes very little sense but which makes very little difference because the game has sold million of copies. I discovered a new game today called Gregg which is a brand new non-sensical game but which instantly hooked me with its clever game play and beautiful graphics.
Chillingo has released a new app called Zya which puts you in the recording studio with some of today’s biggest hits and lets you remix them on your way to becoming a star. Does it live up to its potential? It might not make you famous, but it sure it fun.
A new app called Createrria is available which allows you to create you own games. It’s fun, creative, and easily gained approval from my gaming kids. The concept builds upon the success of games like Minecraft which allow you to create the world around you, but take it even further by letting you build levels, tasks, and a variety of other game situations.
Band Stars is being released worldwide on the Appstore tomorrow! Halfbrick has a successful line of awesome iOS games and Band Stars is poised to be their newest hit. If you are a fan of music then you are sure to enjoy this game, and since it’s free you’ll be able to enjoy it guilt free.
Our planet is changing and NASA has released an iPad app called Images of Change which gives you access to dramatic images of the changes caused by varying climates, natural disasters, and the impact of humans on our environment. The app is relatively simple in its design but the ramifications of these images present a powerful message that is important for us to notice.
App developer Loud Crow Interactive is known for its fantastic reimagining of A Charlie Brown Christmas. The company also wowed fans of the Peanuts Gang last year with a beautifully designed interactive book version of It’s The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown. This year, we are lucky enough to be able to read along to another holiday story of one of Charles M. Schultz’ classic television specials, A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving.
Procreate won an Apple Design Award in 2013 and its new update brings it once again into the forefront of iPad illustration apps. The question, however, is if adding features and implementing a new design will be enough to compete with apps like Paper with its new hardware stylus and the stylus offerings that will be coming from Adobe.
