Do you shop the App Store like a husky kid addicted to a Wonka Chocolate River? Are you the one person that all your friends turn to for app advice on what is badass and what needs avoiding like a leper? Then there is a game that will put your app skills to the ultimate investment test.

Angel’s Choice is part game and part app discovery tool. The game part plays out like a stock investment simulator, only the stocks are apps. You earn Angel Dollars (A$) that you can use to invest in apps on the App Store. As those apps climb the App Store ranking (this does not include popularity drops), so does your return on investment. Now you might have noticed how I said App Store there, that is because you are playing with virtual money on real apps. So imagine what your gamer rank would be if you had invested in Angry Birds before it blew up into the addictive plague it has become today.

There is more to this than just investing Angel Dollars into unknown apps though. You also earn Trust EXP as others invest in your chosen apps, thus making you a beacon of app knowledge. There are also missions, portfolios, and a rather impressive social aspect to this game. Not only can you play this on your phone, but also your successful and not so successful investments become broadcast for the world to see with leaderboards proudly displayed on the Angel’s Choice website. People can click on your name; see your portfolio, current game level, money, profitability, and Trust EXP without even needing an iDevice.

Why not have a bit of fun while you shop for new apps? This just might be one of the coolest ways to shop the app store to date. Check out the website right here, or get a good in-depth feel of how to play the game here. Either way, this app brings a completely new spin on shopping for portable addictions.

Ultimate Hangman

Ultimate Hangman

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
With a two-player mode, amusing animations, and a decent word selection, Ultimate Hangman is a steal for a free app. I really wish it saved my high scores, but even now, it's definitely worth a download.

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Jive Turkey Shoot is by no means a great game or a groundbreaking one, but it's fun, silly, and free. This "thank you" gift from Pangea is surprisingly entertaining and at this price, everyone should be shooting some turkeys this Thanksgiving!

Word Ace

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Word Ace is essentially a mash-up of Texas Hold 'Em and Scrabble. It's free, it's fun, and the online play is great; all you could ask for is a better offline option and this game would be golden. Still, it's definitely worth your time!

Epic Pet Wars

Epic Pet Wars

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
I thought that the notion of a Mafia app with a cutesy pet theme sounded pretty dull—until I tried it. Epic Pet Wars is a quick, free, mindless MMO that'll bring out the animal abuser in all of us.

TechCrunch Offline Reader

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
TechCrunch is a tech-centric blog network, and their offline reader promises to deliver all of their content in a quick, convenient package. While it's pretty enough to look at, and has plenty of features, the reader is just too crash-prone to justify consistent use.
