Last week (well, technically last week) I introduced you all to the all-new, all-video Week in Gaming Apps. Some of you loved it. Others wanted a return to the classic format, with the giant pictures. So I did both, and that's why it's Monday now.
Do not question my decision. I do what I do. I say what I say. I try to be everything to everyone. I know all the right people, and I play all the right games, like Knightmare Tower, Rymdkapsel (which I am probably spelling wrong) and Kid Tripp.
Stay turned next week, when I will turn around, fall down and do it all again. I wonder if I'll ever learn? *does a stupid dance for you*
What I Played This Week...
Knightmare Tower - iOS - $2.99
After Stephen Totilo raved about Knightmare Tower during his review of the Ouya, I was eager to get my hands on the endless-riser for iOS. And then I never let it go. Seriously, it ate my weekend, and it's all Totilo's fault.
The essence of real-time strategy/base-building gameplay. Totilo loved it on PlayStation Mobile. I love it here.
A Brief History of the World - iOS - $5.99
The popular era-hopping board game gets the iPad treatment, and it works incredibly well.
It's a game of dodge-stuff with a nice beat and a clean, cool style.
A clever twist on maze puzzlers, Baby Nom Nom adds grain groups and fruit collecting to the mix.
If you love My Singing Monsters, you'll at least recognize the design of My Muppets Show. It's pretty much a carbon copy, only with Muppets, and Muppets make everything better.
An Alien With a Magnet - iOS - $.99
You really need to watch the video to fully appreciate this one. You probably shouldn't.
Brick Roll - iOS - $1.99
I only just now realized this was a play on the phrase "Rick Roll". I am pretty dense sometimes. Good game, though!
Kid Tripp - iOS - $.99
Classic platforming with a mean streak. Not for the faint of heart or the easily frustrated, but perfect for folks looking for the rush of accomplishment.
