If you have an iPhone, had an iPhone, have thought about having an iPhone, known someone who had an iPhone, or even are only vaguely aware of the existence of the iPhone, it’s unlikely that you’ve escaped without some sort of cursory awareness of Angry Birds, the physics-based phenomenon whose popularity has hung around only slightly too long to still be considered a “fad.” Rovio first released Angry Birds in 2009, and has since pushed out all kinds of updates and new chapters, but the premise has more or less always been the same: load a bird into a slingshot, and launch it in an attempt to topple a piggy-inhabited edifice of questionable structural integrity.

Well today, all of that changes. The piggies want the spotlight now, and Rovio has given it to them in a brand new iOS game called Bad Piggies. Bad Piggies is very much set in the same world as Angry Birds, but the game is quite different. Grab a cup of coffee and hit the jump to take a look at this brand new physics-based puzzler. (more…)

It’s Game Week here at iPhone.AppStorm, and all this week we’re going to have tons of reviews, giveaways and other good stuff, all centered around the gaming world!

If you’re looking for a racing game that stands out from the crowd and is highly addicting, Slingshot Racing could be the perfect fit. With a style that harkens back to the days when arcade games were popular, but also reminiscent of the Angry Birds series, Slingshot Racing will leave you wanting more.

So, does this game have the potential to be as popular as Cut the Rope or Temple Run? Read on to decide if you’ll be sleeping at the wheel or racing to the finish line! (more…)

It’s hard to improve on the slingshot style of games already out for iOS. Angry Birds and others like it already have that niche pretty well locked up. To get attention, a game will have to bring something more than cute critter flinging action to your fingertips. If the game boasts an engaging story, that’s even better.

Catapult King tries to hit all the slingshot buttons, while creating a fun medieval storyline and a small cast of entertaining characters. With fun, fresh gameplay and a new take on the physics puzzler, Catapult King is trying to take the slingshot game formula to new heights. But does it knock down the competition or miss the mark?

Physics games seem like a dime a dozen on the iPhone, and anything that can put a new spin on the “fling an animal at another animal” Angry Birds motif is a welcome addition to the iOS platform. Developer Loqheart’s new iOS offering, Cannon Cat, is just that game.

The Evil Emu has imprisoned the skyfish, because he and the other flightless birds are jealous of their natural ability to soar amongst the clouds. Enter Meo the Cannon Cat, hero here to save the day, rescue the trapped skyfish, and defeat Evil Emu and his army of hovering penguins. (more…)

In the animal kingdom, away from the safe haven that is the App Store, a shark would best any bird, angry or not. However, in the business of iPhone apps the rules have changed, the winged contingent are the dominant species of app and they rule the App Store charts with an iron claw.

The various incarnations of Angry Birds are the de facto standard for physics puzzlers but there is a new kid on the block snapping at their heels. Does Shark Dash sink or swim? Read on to find out. (more…)

World of Goo HD is a strange game. Normally when I buy something from the App Store (or any store for that matter) I have a pretty good idea of what it is I’m actually buying before I buy it. When game shopping in the iOS App Store, whether we’re looking for a a puzzle game, action game, multiplayer game or something completely different, people normally flick through the available screenshots and read game descriptions to get an idea of what the game is about before dropping the cash. We’re sensible like that.

Enter, World of Goo: The game you never knew you needed.


From the Classroom to the Backyard, the Bedroom and beyond (coming soon), you must plot, scheme, build and solve your way through puzzles involving balloons, slingshots, paper airplanes, skateboards and remote-controlled trucks. How do you do it? Casey’s Contraptions.

This app rocks! The puzzles are increasingly more challenging (the first levels give you a nice, quick introduction to the key concepts of gameplay), and the themed experience feels finely perfected down to the last note of the jazzy theme song. My favorite part? Read on and I’ll tell you all about it.
