Like many similar hidden object games, Vampireville has a dark plot with a mystery to uncover. In this case, a real estate agent sent to investigate a castle went insane, and it’s your job to visit the castle to figure out what went wrong and what’s lurking inside those creepy walls.

Join a Narcotics Smuggling Ring in Narco Sub HD

Have you always dreamed of working for a South American drug lord? With Narco Sub, you can experience what it’s like to be a part of a lucrative narcotics submarine smuggling ring. You will build up your fleet and complete contracts in order to earn the right to ship drugs to more lucrative companies.

For a game with a wildly inappropriate theme, the actual gameplay is quite tame. To be honest, I was hoping for something like Lemonade Tycoon with a more risqué storyline, but what I got when I played was a submarine navigation game where the goal is to steer a slow-moving submarine from place to place while avoiding an array of much faster boats.

Back in Time for iPad Makes Scientific History Fresh and Accessible — iPad App Review

Ever since Carl Sagan brought Cosmos to viewers on PBS, scientific educators (as well as their publishers and TV producers) have searched for ways to make mind-boggling concepts like cosmic time and the Big Bang easier for people of all ages to understand. Landka’s Back in Time for iPad, which is part edu-app and part digital coffee table book, tweaks Sagan’s metaphoric Cosmic Calendar by collapsing the history of the universe’s 13.7 billion years into a single day.

Back in Time breaks down the 24 hour period into epoch’s of cosmic or geologic time, so the reader can move through the Earth’s history from the Big Bang to the present, stopping at each event to view photos, watch videos, and read text geared for a curious, but not necessarily scientifically-trained, audience. Back in Time entertains as it educates, bringing the message of educational television programs such as Cosmos and Nova Science Now to a new medium.
