When I was in my third year of university, I became a professional procrastinator. By that, I mean that I had no work and no reason to find work because I was too “busy” with school and prepping for exams. And what that really meant was that I was too “busy” playing Flash-based games on an old MacBook. This was back when Facebook gaming was still a popular thing.

In that day, I was completely hooked on a game called Solitaire Blitz, which now has a universal iPhone/iPad app and is available for free in the App Store. I couldn’t resist the opportunity to pick up the game and try it out again, and see how I felt about it a couple years later on a different platform. And how well can a free game filled with in-app purchases designed for a mouse translate to a touchscreen? Read on to find out more. (more…)

Welcome back to Game Friday!

Grab your iPhones and get your thumbs ready for some exciting new titles including some brain teasing games, some puzzling block fun and a little spaceship combat. (more…)

I’ve often joked with my buddies about the social etiquette required when using a men’s room. You have lines of urinals, but you don’t want to stand right next to someone else if you can avoid it for multiple reasons. Then there’s the stalls, which is a whole other ball of wax and requires certain other considerations. Long story short, there’s a lot going on when a guy has to relieve himself, and it can be quite humorous.

Which is why when I discovered Men’s Room Mayhem, I knew I had to buy it. Would this game be able to provide the male bathroom experience as I know it, or would it just go down the drain? Let’s find out. (more…)

hungrylizardsWe review a lot of games here at iPhone.AppStorm, and the ones that do the best — both financially and by popular vote — tend to be the ones that take advantage of the iPhone’s screen (think Angry Birds, Cut the Rope and similar games). Hungry Lizards fits into that category, and that’s one of the reasons we’re happy to have them as our weekly sponsor.

As the story goes, you’re a lizard — either Spike or Lizia, based on your decision at the beginning of the game — and you’ve been traveling the world because of the great bug famine of 2013. So you’re hungry. Real hungry. And you have to catch bugs in the air with your tongue.

It’s not easy.

This is a game about timing. You have to jump at a certain time because you’ll always travel the same arcs, but you also have to consider how fast the flies are flying and how far your tongue can reach. You get more points for more difficult to reach flies, and trust me, they’re not easy to get. This is a game that will test your skills.

You’ve got a few different playing modes to choose from. There’s multiplayer, real-time co-op and single player to choose from, and then you have 10 levels, 10 bosses and extra bonus rounds that you can unlock as well. Play with your pals via Bluetooth, Game Center or Facebook — pick your poison. Oh, and it’s a universal app as well, so you can play it on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.

But the best part about this game? The developers promise no in-app purchases — ever. Now that’s impressive.

Get It Now!

Hungry Lizards is just $0.99 in the App Store, and it’s worth every penny. It’s an addictive little romp that you’re sure to play for long stretches at a time, and it’s free of in-app purchases. What else are you waiting for? Go get it now!

The premise sounds simple enough. We’re here to play golf. Get the little ball that starts on one side of the course into the little hole on the other side. And yet, with Super Stickman Golf, we see how deliciously complicated that process can become. Noodlecake Studios did a fantastic job imagining this classic game.

And now they’re back again with Super Stickman Golf 2. Is it the same old story? Is it a different take on the same game? Is it worth trying? Let me try and give you a taste of Super Stickman Golf 2. (more…)

Games are pretty popular topics for reviews here at iPhone.AppStorm, and when Apple decides to spotlight one in the App Store, we take notice. That’s why I jumped on the chance to review Dead Ahead, a zombie runner made by the same people who brought us Cut the Rope and Robbery Bob.

Although Dead Ahead is fun, easy to learn and fits most of my standards for an iPhone game, it does have one big problem. Something that looms over most apps nowadays, but this time with a new twist — one that’s just as insidious as the zombies that roam the game’s universe. Do you dare go forward to find out?  (more…)

It’s that time of year around here where everyone is heading up to their cottage to air the place out after winter, and while there’s no shortage of activities once you’re there, the car ride up can get pretty boring …

Needless to say, we can help you out with a new dose of wonderful App Store entertainment. Click through and get ready for some gaming! (more…)

I was the target audience for The Fast and the Furious when it came out in 2001. I was the member of a car club, I owned a Honda and I had friends who were tuners. We knew some of the owners of the cars in the movie, including the guy who owned the Supra that ended up becoming the hero of the flick. It was an interesting part of my life to be sure.

But today, 12 years later with two kids and a wife, I’m no longer that guy. I’ll watch the F&F movies, but at this point it’s all about entertainment, not wishing I could get my car in the film. So what appeal will Fast & Furious 6 — a game based on the latest installment in the series — do for me? Let’s find out after the jump. (more…)

It feels like a puzzling sort of day, doesn’t it? It’s been a week filled with interesting releases in the puzzle genre, and we’re happy to be featuring a number of our favourites.

Don’t worry if you’re a fan of other genres though — variety is the spice of life, and we’re always keeping things spicy here at AppStorm. Click through for some crazy fish antics, a bit of petty theft and a variety of mind bending puzzles! (more…)
