The Snow is Falling on the French Countryside of Carcassonne’s Newest Update

Posted by on December 18th, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

TheCodingMonkeys has recently updated Carcassonne, the tiling laying board game app, with two new expansions: the Winter Edition and the Double Base Tile Set.

The Winter Edition adds a custom interface, new tiles, and the Gingerbread Man to your game. The tasty treat is a delicious holiday bonus for towns that passes from player to player. The Double Base Tile Set expansion lengthens the game by simulating playing with two Carcassonne sets at the same time as many long time players often do with the real board game.

The Winter expansion can be purchased in-game for $1.99 and the Double Base Tile Set expansion is $0.99.

It’s Time to Hit the Slopes with Snowboard Party

Posted by on December 15th, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Catch the action of snowboarding without all that going out into the cold nonsense. Snowboard Party, by Ratrod Studio, has been released for iOS so now you and your friends can test your skills in full HD graphics. Compete to top the leader boards or complete the more than 75 level objectives and earn all the achievements.

As you practice, your snowboarder gains experience. You can level them up and customize their outfit to be the most badass snowboarder at the party. The game also has a freestyle mode that lets you do tricks on rails, jumps, boxes, logs, rocks, and more. You’ll have your choice of 11 snowboarders and a ton of gear to equip them with.

Check out Snowboard Party for $1.99 on the App Store.

SimplePlanes, from the Makers of SimpleRockets, is Now Available on the App Store

Posted by on December 11th, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Do you have fond memories of playing SimpleRockets? Well, maybe “fond” is the wrong word. I mean those things are awfully prone to blowing up. But anyway, if you have a special place in your heart set aside for the madcap rocket-building sim, you should probably make room for the follow-up that just released on the App Store: SimplePlanes.

Much like SimpleRockets, SimplePlanes tasks you with engineering a very complex piece of machinery, then trying to keep it in one piece. This time you’ll be snapping various parts together to make all sorts of aircraft – even some with VTOL (Vertical Take Off and Landing) abilities. Where it gets ridiculous (in a good way) is in how pieces of your craft can break off as you crash into things or get shot at, which can have a pretty big impact on performance.

If you’re in the mood to fly seemingly impossible aircraft that you’ve cobbled together yourself, you can grab SimplePlanes off the App Store now for $1.99.

We’ve reached that time of the year where every man, woman, and corporate entity decides on their favorite games of the previous twelve months.

To celebrate this honor, the developer has announced that the game is now on sale, with the price having had a very appropriate 33.3 recurring % sliced off.

In other words, Threes is available now for $1.99, down from its usual price of $2.99.

Woah Dave!, by Choice Provisions, is a retro-style arcade platformer. This is the first game they are releasing since changing their name from Gaijin Games (perhaps best known for the BIT.TRIP series). Players fight aliens as Dave, a strange little fellow in teal pants. You can reach the top of the leader boards by pocketing the spare change that aliens drop when you kill them.

If you can’t wait and need your Woah Dave! fix immediately, the soundtrack is available on iTunes and CD Baby.

You’ll be able to pick up Woah Dave! this Thursday, October 30, for $1.99.
