Gene's use of physical mutation to control a player's abilities is a refreshing touch, while its throw-back visual art-style will likely see the average platformer fan satisfied, but the way in which mutations are implemented might become irritating to some.

When Jen Allen reviewed book collection management app BookBuddy Pro a couple of years ago, the overall sentiment was that it’s a generally helpful app that could’ve used a few more features. Since that time the folks over at Kimico have been steadily adding to it, resulting in a current version (6.1.2) that addresses the lack of features.
The new BookBuddy Pro now sports a barcode scanner for easy cataloging, improved functions for labeling and finding books in a collection, cloud backups, easy sharing of favorites or entire chunks of a collection, better sorting and organization options, and more. So essentially all of the things we wished were in the app are now in the app.
You can download the latest BookBuddy Pro from the App Store for $4.99, or if you’d rather try before you buy there’s also the free version of Book Buddy that comes with a 50 book limit.

In a surprise release from developers Limbic Software, the followup to the massive hit TowerMadness has just been released. TowerMadness 2 builds on the original which was released way back in July, 2010, with updated graphics, all new levels, weapons, enemies, and characters. Basically the only things it shares with the original are the name and that it’s a tower defense game. And who doesn’t love a tower defense game?
The game is out now and is a $4.99 Universal app. We’ll have a review up as soon as we get a good chance to put the game through it’s paces. For now this video will have to do.
