Those of us with large music libraries know how much of a pain it can be to choose what to listen to. Sometimes there’s no time to make a decent playlist; other times you simply don’t even know where to start. While the basic music app on the iPhone is efficient and easily sorts your music, it doesn’t do a good job presenting your music to you when you don’t know what to listen to.

The App Store is chock-full of driving and flying games of every kind. There are games in which you pilot a spaceship, or a Lamborghini, or an F-22 Raptor, and through every imaginable kind of terrain and situation.

Going old school seems to be a common trend with games nowadays. The charming 8- or 16-bit  artwork, music and play style of the 90s is not only nostalgic fun for those who played the NES and similar game consoles back in the day, but provides a fresh and different experience for the recent generation of gamers.

One iOS game that does a remarkably good job of bringing the retro feel to the masses is Super Crate Box. It’s a frantic, fast-paced, and quite fantastic game that embodies the comeback of arcade age. (more…)
