In the tradition of round-robin storytelling, Threadz is a Creative writing social game. To play, you select a theme such as “Once upon a time” or “It was a dark and scary night,” that will help start your story. Then you will take turns with either friends or random users writing sentences that further your story.
Threadz allows you to customize your sentences with different fonts and colors, and lets you compete with other groups to produce a story with the most participants and top the leaderboards.
You can download for Threadz $0.99 on the App Store.
Haunt the House: Terrortown is a supremely cute action/puzzle game that’s all about a ghost on a quest to shut some humans up. Permanently. Players take control of a little ghost that makes itself as scary as possible in order to drive away the loud and obnoxious folks that are partying near its clock tower. Humans are sometimes a bit too stupid to realize when they’re being haunted, so this guide will help players clear the area of all objectionable presences as quickly as possible.
Use small taps to dart from place to place – Learning to control your ghost is vital for a haunting job well done. If you’re restricting yourself to a single area, use small taps to move from place to place. That way you can explore your surroundings calmly and efficiently.
Hold down to zip from scene to scene – On the other hand, if you’re wanting to travel from one scenario to another lickety-split, hold down on the screen to barrel through an area at top speed.
Possess a bell in the clock tower to change your ghost’s appearance – Once a person is dead, they take up residence in one of the tower’s bells. Your ghost can possess these bells to take on the inhabitant’s visage.

As much as I’d like to reveal to you that The Room Two, the great logic puzzle title from Fireproof Games, is currently on sale for 66% off, I’m afraid that you’ll need the spyglasses pictured below in order to see this news.
It’s a shame, really. You likely would have loved to have known that we gave the game 4.5 stars in our review, and that it currently carries an 8.9 rating over on QualityIndex. But alas, you’ll likely never know that this game is very much worth getting at this price, especially with The Room Three set to release next year.
At the base of the campaign is a new maze pack for Ms. PAC-MAN and PAC-MAN, titled the ‘Hope Maze’, with all purchases of the $0.99 pack going directly towards supporting the National Breast Cancer Foundation. In addition, the in-game interface in both games will be going pink for the month of October.
NBCF Founder and CEO Janelle Hail had this to say on the campaign:
We are very excited about our new partnership with Bandai Namco and the Ms. PAC-MAN Pink Ribbon Campaign. By encouraging their gamers to Join the Pac, we can reach more women than ever with our message of hope. The funds they raise will allow us to provide early detection services for women in need in all 50 states.
Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man are both available on the App Store now for $3.99, with the ‘Hope Maze’ available as an in-app purchase in both games for $0.99.
