Gutenbergz Inc. wanted kids to learn more about technology, so they created Gadgetarium – an Interactive Children’s Book About Technology. The app was fully funded through a Kickstarter campaign in 2013 and has just been released for iOS.
Gadgetarium takes children, 6 years and older, through the history of technology; from the creation of the wheel to radios, microscopes, and more. The inventions can be viewed as 3D models that can be played with to learn more about them, and users are guided through their discoveries by a boy and his pet pug.
Gadgetarium also offers the ability to mix different gadgets to create new inventions to help foster curiosity and creativity. You can pick it up for $1.99 on the App Store.

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.

The Chainsaw wielding card game, Chainsaw Warrior by GameTheNews.net, is coming back in Chainsaw Warrior: Lords of the Night. The new game will have an upgraded combat system, new weapons, upgrades, powers, equipment, zones, and unique mini bosses.
Steve Martin, the game’s designer at Auroch Digital says: “Chainsaw Warrior will always be, at its heart, a board game.

To celebrate the upcoming release of this new installment, the original Chainsaw Warrior, which was based on the 1987 classic from Games Workshop, is going on sale for 50% off today.
You can download Chainsaw Warrior for $1.99 on the App Store and Chainsaw Warrior: Lords of the Night will be out later this winter.
